Introducing our Guest Designer for November 2011, Felecia!
"Hi! My name is Felecia and I’m so excited to get be a Guest Designer this month at CKCB! I am wife to a wonderful husband, Scott, who is completely clueless about why I love to scrapbook, but supportive none-the-less. And I’m Mommy to two extremely energetic boys, who are 5 and almost 2. We live in a quiet little suburb of Charlotte, NC. Though, if you really want the truth I’m a Colorado girl, who got to the South by way of an 18 year layover in California.
I’ve been playing along with CKCB for a few months now and have completely fallen in love with counterfeiting!! Being a product junkie, I have amassed a ridiculous stash. And, I’m a huge fan of kits for scrapping because working with a limited set of supplies challenges my creativity. So, shopping my own stash to create awesome kits that are perfect for my style and photos just seems like heaven.
My kit style is often very neutral and/or masculine because I scrap mostly little boy pictures. I’m also a big fan of kraft, white and black cardstock in my kits. It always comes in handy! While I like to experiment with techniques and art supplies, my scrapping style stays pretty firmly in the clean/graphic realm. Nearly every layout begins with a sketch (I’m the sort that needs a plan!) I also LOVE to journal and use lots of journaling on the majority of my layouts, usually in the form of type-writer style fonts cut into strips.
In my non-scrapbooking life, I love music (in a past life, I was an aspiring singer/songwriter), baking (CUPCAKES), doing crafts with my kids (pet rocks, anyone?!), reading mystery novels and inspirational books, and watching crime dramas or sci-fi television. Oh, and I love a good junking trip, too! And…I’m addicted to coffee!
I’m so very honored to be here! Thank you so much for having me! Can’t wait to see what the month has in store for us!! "
