Today we welcome Kerryn Lawson as our featured designer. She is a terrific Aussie Scrapbooker and you can find her work on her blog. Read on to find out a little more about her.
1) Where do you live?
I live in the northern suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia. I’ve lived in these parts my entire life .
2) How long have you been scrapbooking and how did you start?
I started scrapbooking about 6 1/2 years ago now. My husband gave me a scrapbooking kit for my birthday one year. We had just had our first family holiday together and he thought it would be a nice way to document the memories. Little did he know what he was about to unleash!
3) 5 favourite things to use on a layout?
My favourites change all the time but at the moment my favourites are machine stitching, patterned paper, bling, flair badges and chipboard.
4) Do you have a favourite technique?
I love to experiment but I’m not a big technique kind of girl. Although I have started experimenting with texture paste lately and I am loving that.
5) Who are you inspired by?
I find my inspiration comes from many places but my biggest source of personal and crafty inspiration comes from a very special group of friends brought together by our love of scrapbooking. These girls inspire me every day.
6)What is your scrapbooking kryptonite (your biggest challenge)?
mmmmm... that’s a toughie. I am usually up for giving anything a go, at least once. If there is one thing that has always been a challenge for me it would be creating double page layouts. I will avoid creating them unless I absolutely have to!
7) Tell us a bit about your life in general?
My life is generally going at full throttle. Between part time work, kids and their sport and keeping some sort of order at home you have to keep going or chaos erupts. However I am lucky enough to have my holidays at the same time as the kids so I am always looking forward to the next batch of school holidays when I can take the foot off the accelerator just a little bit.
8) What makes you happy?
My family. Plain and simple. They are my everything.
9) Where can LPS readers see more of your work and connect with you online? (eg blog address, any other links such as social media if you wish)
