1. Tell me a little bit about yourself.
I am me. I am a wife, a daughter, a sister, and a friend. I am an artist. I am a crafter. I laugh. A lot.
2. When and how did you start cardmaking?
I started scrapbooking when I was in college on my own. I had pictures and I wanted to do something fun with them! From there, I ended up diving straight into the wonderful world of paper crafting. In the last couple of years I have done very little scrapbooking, as cards have taken over my life! I love it!!!
3. What inspires you to create?
I am inspired by all kinds of crazy things! I read a lot of blogs, I watch the world around me, I love color. I also have a weakness for new product! I am very product driven, so I often begin a project based on something fun I want to use that day!
4. What is your favorite technique? Why?
That’s a tricky one, as I don’t really consider myself a ‘technique’ kind of girl. Does clean and simple count? I LOVE using white space! Oh..and rounded corners. I <3 rounded corners. Just say’n.
5. Who are your favorite paper crafters at the time? Why?
Oh, I can’t even answer that question! They are MY FRIENDS! My favorite paper crafters aren’t necessarily the famous ones. I love the community around this industry and have made so many wonderful friends I simply couldn’t list all of the amazing people who inspire me without even trying!
6. Describe your style.
Random. Yup. That’s pretty much me. I do a lot of clean and simple, but then sometimes I do all out nuts with embellishments and such. I like to play. I love to experiment. I’m not a fan of boxes, therefore, I do not put my creativity into one. My style is FREE!
7. Are you on any design teams at the time? Have you been published in any magazines?
I am on several design teams right now including Gourmet Rubber Stamps, The Stampendous! Michael’s Team, May Arts, Tami Mayberry Designs, Skipping Stones Design, Retro Cafe Art Gallery, Scrapbook Circle, and The Eyelet Outlet.
I have been published recently and have others coming out in Paper Crafts Magazine, Cricut Magazine, Cricut Quick and Easy Idea book, CARDS Magazine, and CREATE.
8. What is your favorite thing(s) about creating?
It’s my way of being me! I love this community and I love using my hands and I love making stuff! I can express myself, be myself, and enjoy myself. What could be better than that? Plus...seriously...crafting is the BEST stress reducer EVER. Just say’n.
I love how Jennifer conveys the message in a simple yet striking and gracious way. It's a design that surely would appeal to anyone out there, with its bold and graphic look, and I like how she adds the little feminine touches (notice the pearls?) that just add charm and extra interest.... Thanks Jennifer for inspiring us this time :) See you all very soon....
