Sunday Spotlight!

Good Sunday to you all!  It is Arin is here and I am thrilled to introduce to you Becky from Becky's Craft Place! She is a pooch lovin' crafter that really has a passion and talent for crafting, especially with her Cricut. She lets nothing get in her way to keep her from crafting, even recently moving she managed to land a spot on FCCB's Top 5 with this great project (one of my personal favorite "cheesy" jokes)!

Becky has a lot of personality to her cards that just shine with creative whimsy and wit! Check out these cards I spotted that just make you smile the minute you see them!

Now let's meet her!
1. When did you start scrapbooking/paper crafting and why?
I started making scrapbooks during college just to keep memorabilia organized- ticket stubs, notes from friends, etc.  I don’t think there are even any pictures in my very first scrapbook!  I dipped my toes in a little further when I made my wedding scrapbook, but it really became my hobby when I got my first Cricut in 2011.
2. What is your favorite type of project to make (i.e., cards, layouts, mini-albums, etc....)?
It all depends on the mood I’m in!  I love making cards because of the variety.  There are so many cuts that I probably never would need on my scrapbook pages, based on the types of things I scrapbook about, but I can use them on cards of all types!  But sometimes I get burnt out on cards, print a ton of pictures, and spend a whole week just scrapping instead.
3. What is your favorite product to use on your projects?
I’ve been keeping my Stickles in a box right on my craft table lately- I don’t even bother to put them away anymore- so that probably means they’re getting used the most.  I love that they add sparkle to projects and that there are so many colors that they will match anything.
4. What is your favorite Cricut cartridge?
My all time favorite is Create a Critter.  I think the cuteness of the designs just matches my style really well.  Of course, I also love Create a Critter 2!  It has the cuteness of the original with the added bonus of the holiday themes. 
5. What do you do in your spare time, when you are not paper crafting?
I love to bake!  I bake all kinds of things- both human treats and dog treats.  I feel like it uses a different aspect of creativity, and I love that in the end the product is something delicious!  I also love movies, especially the big superhero blockbuster movies.  I’m kind of a nerd.

Here are some creative finds I found that I just had to share!

As mentioned before, Becky is one pooch lovin' crafter and her four legged BFF, named Sophie has been the subject of many of her amazing creations.  Check a few of the many I found of this sweet pooch.  Becky's blog would be a great resource to all you pet lovers to see how to craft your four legged friend.

It has been super fun showcasing Becky from Becky's Craft Place! You will want to pop over an be inspired by her projects.  I want to leave you with these two last projects that are great tips and tricks that will not only show you some new approaches, but will leave you feeling like you have learned something new! 

Until Next Week!
