Getting to Know You Blog Hop

11:00 PM

Hello there! I'm super excited to be joining The Cut Shoppe for another term. Today we are celebrating the new team with a fun blog hop! To start off, we're all answering a few questions about our scrapping process.

How many times in a week, do you work on something scrapbook related?
Pretty much every day. If I'm not scrapping, I'm planning out assignments or posting things to social media. As far as creating layouts, I tend to go in spurts. I work for several hours at a time and churn out the pages!

What’s your favorite subject to scrapbook?
My husband and dog, hands down! That's what 99% of my layouts are about!

What is your favorite color to use on your layouts/projects?  What is your least favorite color?
Probably pink. I tend to gravitate towards more girly products, which typically include pink. I struggle with using purple, and I also rarely use orange.

Why do you like using cut files on your layouts/projects?
I find cut files to be so inspiring! They help me create backgrounds, accents, and titles for my pages. Words and phrases inspire layout subjects. I also love how I can manipulate them to create multiple looks from just one file.

What are some of your other favorite hobbies?  If you were not a scrapbooker, what other hobby do you think would consume most of your time?
That's so hard to say! I can't imagine anything outside of scrapbooking. I absolutely love to read, but I think I would be consumed with some other creative hobby

Tell us 5 things we don’t know about you!
-I'm terrified of fish. I don't know why. Ocean fish are fine, but dead fish or any fish in tanks freak me out!
-I am basically a four year old at heart. I love stickers, Hello Kitty, and Disney. I'm not even a little bit ashamed.
-Michael and I hope to have kids in the next few years, but first I intend on fulfilling my life long dream of going to Paris.
-I was 20 the first time I went to Disneyland. I loved it so much that I honeymooned there, and have been back multiple times since!
-I'm an Auntie! I have one niece, Cassidy and she is two years old. I love her so much!

Here's a look at some of my favorite layouts I've designed for The Cut Shoppe!
