Jump! – Andrea Ford.

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)?

www.Twopeasinabucket.com and www.simplescrapbooksmag.com

Favourite scrapbooking magazine?

Up2scrap and Simple Scrapbooks magazine

Most inspiring/helpful scrapbooking book?

Clean & Simple scrapbooks by Cathy Zeilske

Favourite scrapbooking celeb?

We’ll be sharing some more of Andrea’s work with the ‘Spring Clean’ kit after the weekend.

Later today look out for another famous Friday Freebie, and tomorrow our September sketch challenge will begin!
