I'm Lizzie! I'm a twenty something momma of three that lives in Texas! I love doing all kinds of crafty and artsy things! I'm a pretty funky fun loveing lady that is always up for a challenge! I love making cards and crocheting and I'm getting into painting more and more! I also design digi stamps that I offer on my blog for free monthly! I love bringing joy to others and getting them in the crafty, creative spirit!
1.Tell me all about the start of your art, How did your scrapbooking/cardmaking begin? I've always done crafty/artsy things for as long as I can remember. Even when b/4 I was scrapping I was making novelty purses and postcards to sell or just give away to friends! But I started scrapbooking in early 2008 and cardmaking came later... which btw I'm totally in love with doing!
2.Do you have a style that you feel you can relate most to? I have a very funky style that is all my own! It took me a few years with trying new things to come into my own, and I'm happy i did it! If you find a style that works for you and you love doing it, then keep at it! Don't feel like you have to change to keep up with the masses... be you with your craftiness and art!
3.Do you have a stand-by element/paper line or tool that you must use when you create? I have tons of paper lines that I adore! Echo Park, Sass, Oct Afternoon are my top three! As for tools... I love my Fiskars pink handled mico tip scissors! And my Fiskars apron lace border punch!!
4.Do you have a favorite technique? I love to doodle! It adds a special aspect to your work and makes it totally one of a kind! Even if you are mass producing something, like cards, not one will be the same! It's an easy way to add yourself to your project as well!
5.If you could not shop for one year...would your craft space be emptied or would you still have product? I would have like NO cardstock that's for sure! But I would come up with other stuffs... I have TONS of yarn and fabric so I would prolly sew and crochet more! Heck I might even try to knit again for the upteth time! lol
6.Can you tell something about yourself that others would be shocked to learn? I'm a very happy go lucky person... I love being happy and carefree... but it hasn't always been that way for me. I suffer from depression... I've had it since I was a child. So a lot of ppl are shocked to hear that! B/c when you meet me in person I'm super happy and bubbly! And I love being this way!
7.If you could make one outfit out of scrapbooking paper what line would it be from? an outfit? Echo Park Little Girl! I'm not just saying that b/c all my projects are made with that line... i REALLY love it! that yellow they use is my favorite shade of yellow! Not to mention pink houndstooth? /swoon I would make one killer dress and a pair of shoes out of it!!
8.Where can people find you hanging out in Cyberspace? you can always find me on my blog http://ohsnaplizzie.blogspot.com or on facebook... i have a bad game addiction lol I also hang out at Tallyscrapper.com and Fiskateers.com... are you a Fiskateer? you should be!
9.What makes you a groovy chick? B/c I was born groovy! I'm a chick that isn't afraid to try something new! I love taking chances and I think I'm a pretty awesome and funky gal! I'm totally groovy!
Here are the projects I made! There are FOUR of them! The first is a Birthday card made with the heart Fiskars punch (That's Amore) and I did a li'l 3-d effect, it was easy, just punch out alot of the hearts, I did five or six, and then fold them all in half, then glue them all together to make it pop!
The second one is a Happy Birthday card made with a free digi from Make It Crafty from the owners B-day last month.
The next one is an awesome party hat I made! I mean what is a birthday w/o a party hat right? I used lots of Echo Park 'little girl' for my projects b/c well... this paper line is very ME! I love it!
And the last card is a card that I made with a digi that I designed! You can get it free on my blog from Dec 1st - 6th ONLY! And did I mention it's FREE??
Thanks Lizzie! This was fun :)
