Please join me in welcoming February's Guest Designer!
Hello! My name is Pamela Young, and am thrilled and honored to be guest designing for Paper Posies!
I absolutely LOVE scrapbooking. It is a way of life for me. :) It is my therapy and my peace. I have been scrapbooking for about 9 years and card-making for 8 years. I have just added altering and digital/hybrid scrapbooking to what I do this past year. I love making home décor. My style keeps evolving. I love to try new things. I also tend to stick with my favorite techniques and designs. If I find something I love, I tend to use it a lot. :) I have been published in several different magazines (Cards, Creating Keepsakes, Memory Makers, Scrapbooks and Cards Today, Scrapbooks Etc, and Scrapbook Trends). I keep an updated blog at http://pamelasworldofscrap.blogspot.com/.
I am currently living in Colorado, and I am a SAHM to two wild boys, ages 6 and 4, and a baby girl who is almost 1. They grow up so fast. I am enjoying life right now, even though it can get a bit chaotic. :) I have a wonderful husband who is supportive of my crafting obsession. We have been married for 9 years. Family plays a big part in my life.
Favorite trimmer: I don't really have a favorite...I just use my old fiskars and it works just fine for me. :)
Favorite Scrapbooking Tool: My Paper Piercer
Favorite Ink: Spray Ink: Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels
Favorite Photo Developer: Me. :) I print all my own photos.
Favorite Scrapbook Magazine: Really it changes a lot, even from month to month, but Scrapbook Trends seems to be pretty constant.
Favorite Patterned Paper: My Little Shoebox, Websters Pages
Favorite Cardstock: American Crafts
Favorite Thing I've Created: Oh I have many favorites...too many to list.
New scrapbooking goodie/trend:
Scrapbooking Style: I am not sure I have a style that can be defined as anything but "Pamela's style".
Why I Love Scrapbooking: I love that the artist in me comes out to play in a way that also records my stories and the photos and memories that I don't want to forget.
Best Organizational Tip: Clean up after you are done. :) (I am HORRIBLE at this!)
Stay tuned... I will be posting some more inspiration from Pamela!
