Laura's scrap space...

Describe your scrap space. Do you like/dislike it? I have a small room in the basement where I scrap. I love having my own space where I can leave things out & not worry. It has lots of cool storage & three work stations. However, since I don’t need to clean it up, it tends to be a big mess most of the time. I also don’t like that it is away form my family. In order to scrap I need to kind of cloister myself up down there.

What are your favourite colours to scrapbook with? I tend to reach for green quite a bit in my scrapping. I also keep lots of black & white cardstock on hand. I really love color so as far as I am concerned it is all good.

Do you enjoy other crafts and/or hobbies? I am a crafty girl so I sew a bit, I draw & paint, I do face & body painting, & really anything that strikes my fancy. I have four kids so crafts are always a part of our lives.

What scrapbook magazines do you read? OK I am embarrassed to admit this, but I have subscriptions to Memory Makers, Creating Keepsakes, & Simple Scrapbooks. I also have been known to buy Paper Crafts & some of the Australian magazines when I see them in the store. It truly is an obsession.

How thick is your cardstock and paper stash? I have them in racks in my basement. If I had to guess…I would say 3 inches of cardstock & 12 inches of pattern paper.

Are you an organized or messy scrapper? Definitely I am messy with dreams of being neat.

Anything else you want to share? I am really excited to have discovered so many scrap related blogs. This has opened up a whole new side of the craft for me. The challenges & ideas that you can find really push you outside of the box. What fun it is to try new things.
