The wonderful Andrea Ford is our winning Guest Designer this month. Here’s a little bit about her:
Hi, I’m Andrea Ford, living in Waimauku with Chris and our three gorgeous boys aged 11, 10 & 3.
How and when did you get into scrapbooking?
I have always collected paper and stationery, and previously did bookbinding so scrapbooking was just waiting for me! I have been scrapping since the birth of my youngest, January 2005. I completed about 100 12×12 LO in my first year! I’m inspired by my children, nature and my work – children with autism and their mothers.
Favourite scrapbooking product, tool or brand?
White cardstock! Fiskars scissors, Tombow glue, and patterned paper.
Favourite style of scrapbooking?
A4, must tell a story with journaling or a quote, minimalist design. I also make lots of mini albums and love recycling especially old children’s board books.
Favourite scrapping site (other than Paper Pesto – ha ha)?
