Tell us a little bit about yourself: I’ve worked in the scrapbooking/crafting industry for nearly 15 years. Hard to believe it’s been that long! I love that I’ve landed in this amazing industry. Being a supportive, family-oriented business, I have amazing opportunities to now work from home, where I can be with my sweet girls and put my family first. It’s a gift and a joy to be a part of it all!
How did you get started scrapbooking? My mom gave me a photo album when I was a child and her old camera (complete with a flashbulb!). From there, the bug was born. 😉 I still have and love that earliest album!
What is your favorite Pink Paislee product? Ack! Just one? I’m going to cheat and say the patterned paper. I know that’s technically MANY products – there are so many awesome prints to choose from! I never have a hard time using paper. It complements my style and works for so many themes, seasons, and reasons I create.
5 fun facts about you:
1. Growing up, my best friends and I had a secret language we made up, and I can still speak it today. Though, not nearly as fast I as I once did.
2. I’m slightly obsessed with decorative tape dispensers and have more than I care to admit.
3. I made a bucket list when I was 12 and all but two items have already been checked off. Alas, I think one will forever remain unchecked – “be Belle in the Disneyland parade.” Does Belle have a grandma in the parade? 😉
4. I’m currently on a self-described 2017 Quest for Less, which has meant letting go of much in my home, as well as much on my to-do list. This has included things and work I love, but it feels so right. I’m happy about the direction my life is going in and can’t wait to see where the rest of this year takes me. Sometimes, less truly is so much more!
5. I’ve broken nine bones in my time, superglued my eye shut, and ripped my big toenail off while zip lining. In other words, my middle name should be Grace. You know, just for a bit of irony since I’m tremendously uncoordinated and accident prone.
String up an assortment of journaling cards, Fuji Instax photos, and pockets (great for holding gift cards) for a gift to mom that’s both decorative and functional. It even doubles as a mini album when stacked together.
Have fun with puns and wordplay! When I saw the sweet sock die cuts, I knew I HAD to use them and simply needed a sentiment that felt Mother’s Day appropriate – Mom, you rock my socks! seemed just the ticket!
Divided page protectors make awesome gift containers. Fill each compartment with something fun for Grandma this Mother’s Day.
The grid sheets of patterned paper offer a sweet quilt/homespun/cozy feel, just right for a page about being a mama. Use the bitty pattern squares to mat assorted photos.
Die cut bitty Polaroid-inspired frames to make photos stand out. And don’t let the squares from the centers of each from go to use – they make an excellent calendar border when lined up across the top of the page!
At the end of each month, pick a favorite pic and use an open space in your planner to make a mini scrapbook page. It’s a fun way to add personality and dress up the monthly divider tabs found in most creative planners!
