Happy Saturday all,
Today I have the very talented Stacy Cohen as the feature artist; Stacy designs for Prima and Creating Keepsakes magazine as well as teaching some amazing classes. Here is her interview:
Why did you start creating? I started creating when my daughters were 3 and 1 years old. I wanted to preserve all those precious memories of their childhood. I’ve enjoyed crafting all my life, so combining paper art with the preservation of their memories seemed like a perfect match.
Do you have a favourite song to create too? Nope! I always have the TV on while I’m crafting. Reality shows are my favorite.
Who are your favourite manufacturers? Prima is number one. I also like October Afternoon, Maya Road, Lily Bee, Melissa Frances and the now-defunct Girl’s Paperie.
What is your favourite thing about teaching scrapbooking? I love to see people get that “aha” moment when they try something new. And when teaching scrapbooking I often learn new things myself because people always come to the class with unique ideas and fun twists on things.
I’m currently teaching an online class at Miss Art's Papercrafting School. As a prize/giveaway for my guest blog post, the owner of Miss Art’s Papercrafting School has generously agreed to give away a 60-day extra credit subscription ($30 value). They will have access to the many classes currently posted (including my “Secret Garden Layout Class”).
