~Happy Tuesday all,
~Today is my first blog interview, featuring the very lovely Tiffany of Scrap Tiffany, here is the lovely lady herself:
Hi, my name is Tiffany and I am the owner of ScrapTiffany. I have been married to my best friend for 22 years, and we have 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls ages 8-20. We live in a small town in Washington, but are getting ready to move back to our hometown of Seldovia, Alaska. I have been creating my entire life but only started scrapbooking in 2000 when we were stationed in Hawaii. I made my first scrapbook for my Girl Scout troop, and I was hooked! I have taught all over the country for the past seven years, and I enjoy it so much. I especially love to bring new crafters into this wonderful hobby. I started ScrapTiffany about a year ago, and have been really enjoying it. We do precut Class Kits, with a different theme each month. All new kits release the 13th of every month, and can be found at http://www.scraptiffany.typepad.com/shop/
~Every week I will ask my interviewee some questions and they very kindly send me some images of their favourite projects, here are Tiffany's:
Who is your biggest inspiration??? My Husband and my kids. I love to take photos of them, and those photos turn into my art.
Why did you start creating? I've been creating as long as I can remember. When I was a child I was designing clothes for my Barbies, then in Junior High I started sewing, that evolved into making fabric photo albums. I loved taking pictures too, and that eventually turned into scrapbooking.
What is your favourite thing to create? I love making Mini Albums. I got so into making them for awhile, I think I went over a year without doing a layout. Now with the Challenge Blog, I get to do a layout a week!
Why did you start Scrap Tiffany as a challenge blog? I really just started it because I thought it would be fun. I picked a few Designers, and the rest is history! It has been an absolute blast the past 10 months.
What do you look for in potential designers (as I know you have a DT call happening NOW)? I am drawn to a particular scrapbooking style, as we all are. I try very hard to look outside my "box" and think of all the different styles that my readers would like to see. I love when I run into someone that reads my blog and they ask me about a particular Designer. I always get, "Oh, I just love her style!" I want to show a variety of styles as well as different levels of scrapbooking. Even though I like pages with lots of embellishments and detail, I always try to remember that there are beginning scrappers out there that may get a bit intimidated by all that.
Do you create with music? If so what is your favourite creative song? I LOVE music! I have my Playlist on my iPhone and my laptop, and I am listening to one or the other the majority of the day. OK, don't laugh....My all time favorite is Dancing Queen by Abba! In fact, I have 3 different versions in my playlist! :)
What are your 3 must-have creative items? I MUST have my Ultimate Glue, my 12x12 Tonic Guillotine Trimmer, and my Tim Holtz Scissors. With these 3 things...I can create anything!
~Please go check out Tiffany's blog, and the fantastic work the lovely DT have done this week - make sure to leave a comment when you visit!!!! And if you want to be on the DT, be sure to check out the CALL!!! Tiffany takes on anyone from new designers, ladies (and men) who haven't been on a design team and more experience designers - so have a go at applying.
~Make sure you pop by tomorrow for WOYWW, and next week I have another fantastic designer to interview, so make sure you stop in for that.
~love, Vicki xxx
