Happy Tuesday!

Today I am sharing a couple of awesome projects by our Guest Designer, Amelie Mordret created with our August 2013 Hip Kit & Add-On Kits.  Before sharing her projects – I thought it would be fun to get to know a little more about her.  So, here are a few more fun facts about her likes & dislikes and creative preferences.  Enjoy!  xo – Kimberly –

1 – Sweet or salty?
  • Salty! Although I love milk chocolate and sweets!
2 – What is your favorite color combination?
  • I don’t have favorite color combination. When I am working on a project, I often use a three color combination, but not more. There are no colors that I dislike.
3 – What is your favorite technique right now?
  • Layering of course! Love to have volume on my creations!
4 – What is your preferred page size and why? 8.5×11 or 12×12?
  • Definitely 12X12. I like having space!
5 – Do you like using patterned paper or cardstock as the background for your layouts?
  • I adore working on white background.  I often cut down the white background just a bit and  layer it over patterned paper or cardstock leaving a thin border of the colored paper.  Sometimes I use lots of colors and pattern papers and other times I use more neutral colors. Regardless, I like my layouts to be light and airy!
6 – Do you use stamps on your layouts?
  • Yes, in general it is the finishing stage of my creations.
7 – Handwritten journaling or computer journaling?
  • I love handwriting on layouts, but I don’t like to write on my pages because I don’t like my handwriting.  I often feel like my handwriting will ruin my project.  I am really trying to work on getting more comfortable with it because it is a really nice personal touch.
8 – What are a few of your favorite computer fonts?
  • Pacifico, Channel, Clipper to use with my silhouette!
9 – What are your 3 favorite manufacturers?
  • Currently, in US, I’m totally in love with Glitz Design, October Afternoon and Pink Paislee, and there is always the inevitable American Crafts and Crate Paper.
