Kraftie Kre8ations Design Team Reveal and Blog Hop

     Kraftie Kre8ations is proud to have this opportunity to introduce our "new design team" members.   We have a talented group of ladies starting this month.  Here is their opportunity to introduce themselves and for us to allow them to truly shine.  Just wait until you see what they have to show you on this hop!  Our sponsor for this hop is Stampin Up!

     So for the hop we were asked to create an artist trading card that shows who we are.  My first card shows the life I always thought I'd have.  I would travel or live somewhere abroad, Paris was my first choice, and it would just be me.

     Well, then I met the man who would become my husband and my how things have changed!  We travelled before we had M, but choose to stick somewhere closer to home now.  You know what!? Even though it's not what I imaged...I wouldn't trade it for the world!  I love very part of our life. Okay, I lie...I hate to have to go to work, but who doesn't!
     We also were given a few questions, and photos to post to help you get to know us better. 

     What is my scrapbook "kryptonite" or what will you never see on my pages?  The answer is probably two things - feathers and cartoon people.  I don't mean like Woody from Toy Story, but just cut out of people that don't look's just not my thing.

     What do I like to watch or listen to while I scrap and why?  I am usually listening to some sort of Disney or Pixar movie, as I do most of my scrapping when M is winding down watching a movie. If I happen to be alone I'll put on an old favorite movie. I don't tend to watch new things because I'll miss something in either the movie or the project.
Two Old Favorites

     How do I jump start my creativity when it's missing?  Pinterest or Google images.  I'll do a quick search for scrapbook sketches or the topic I'm working on and I usually find something that speaks to me.  If it's really bad I'll walk away, get something else done, and come back to it.
     At what time of day and I most creative or do I prefer to work?  I'm usually up at 5:30 for work and I find on the weekend even when my family sleeps in I'm often the first one up.  I like to sneak down to my table and work in the peace and quiet before the hub ub of the day begins.
A New Favorite
     What is my favorite technique right now and what are some tried and true that I love?  Glitter of any kind and matchy matchy.  I really am one of those people who likes all my things to match perfectly.  It's why I've given in to buying paper pack rather than single sheets since I know they all match.
   So now let me tell you how this hop is going to work!   After the hop, we will select the lucky winner from those who commented along the way, and became a new follower of the Kraftie Kre8ations's Blog, which is the last stop on on the blog trail. We hope that you enjoy our welcoming blog hop! 

Good luck and happy hopping!
