Trendsetting Spotlight on Emma!

It's time for the Trendsetting Spotlight! Each Thursday we feature a card made by someone who has participated in the previous week's TSG Challenge. Would you like to be in the Trendsetting Spotlight?? Join in the fun by participating in our weekly challenges posted every Monday!

This week's spotlight is on Emma!
Emma made this adorable card for our Kids card challenge. 
 I just love it!  So trendy using the beautiful sparkle paper and the gorgeously colored image. Here's a little bit about Emma:

1.     When did you discover stamping?  I’ve been stamping almost as long as I’ve been scrapbooking, over 10 years, but didn’t really ‘get it’ until I discovered clear stamps.  I had a CTMH party and joined up soon after.  Two years later, I have a huge collection from many companies – and I cling mount any rubber stamps.  About the same time, I got into making my own cards – I hate giving the stores $5.00 for a plain card!

2.      What is your "go to" embellishment? I’ve always struggled with embellishments – I can play around with placement for ages and never be happy.  I do love ribbon though, and you can’t go wrong with a pretty bow!  Anything sparkly is pretty good too, but I have sworn off chipboard letters as the stash was starting to get ridiculous.

3.     What is your favorite new tool?  I’m not sure if they’re a favourite yet, but I just got my first batch of Copics.  I think they’re going to take some practice, so I’ve been watching a lot of You tube videos.  Otherwise, I’m not so much about the latest and greatest, but the old standbys.  I love, love my Cuttlebug, Nesties and embossing folders, I use them all the time.

4.     Tell us a little about yourself.  I have 1 hubby, 2 really busy boys, 1 mini van and a dog – which, along with a full time job as an aircraft maintenance planner keep me really busy.  Scrapping’ with friends is a great way to relax and have fun.  DH says I’m only allowed to scrap since I’m good at it, but he thinks I should do more pages and less cards!

Well, we agree with Emma's husband, she is good at it and we can't wait to see what you come up with next. You can find Emma on her blog, Paper Addicts Anonymous.  And you could find YOURSELF in the spotlight by participating in our weekly Monday challenge. So get crafting!! :-D
