Getting to Know You: All About Style!

We thought it would be fun to start doing a new column every once in a while... we'll answer a question, but more importantly we want to hear from you and get to know you better too!  Without further adieu... here's our first question!

What's your crafty style?
Simple? Shabby Chic?  Graphic? Distressed? Eclectic?

Suzanne says:
I would have to describe my crafty style the same way I describe myself -- ECLECTIC!!!  I enjoy all types of paper crafting -- layouts, altered objects, decorative projects.  And I have been known to try other crafts as well; my mother and grandmothers had me knitting, sewing, and embroidering from a young age!

Please see Suzanne's blog post about this fabulous banner!

Susan says:
I'll try almost anything once so I'd have to say I'm eclectic.  Although I tend to favor vintage, grunge and distressed styles.  My style tends to be more simple when I am recording family history as opposed to scrapping a photo that caught my fancy - then it's all about the art!

The journaling strip idea was scraplifted from a magazine.  I used all sorts of items from inked cheesecloth to popsicle sticks and beads.(Please excuse the shadow from the stitched scan)
 Amanda says:
This is such a tough question for me!  I'd have to say that I'm an eclectic-graphic-simple.... sometimes paper, sometimes digi scrapper.  I love experimenting with new stuff and using patterned paper as my main design guide, all while trying to keep it simple and tell a story!

Cindy says:
I am a clean and simple scrapper.  My layouts usually feature straight lines, multiple photos, handwritten journaling and minimal embellishments.  I love to take photos from many different events and tie them together into a single layout, like I did here:

From Flamingo Scraps: Crate Paper patterned paper
Other Supplies: Bazzill cardstock; Scenic Route letter stickers.

Tonya says:
My style is a mixture of Graphic & Grunge . The messier and more distressed the better.   A layout isn’t finished if the paper hasn’t been ripped or inked.

From Flamingo Scraps: Prima Say it in Studs; Prima Shabby Chic paper; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Milled Lavender; Tim Holtz Vintage Photo; Tattered Angels Rose Tea Glimmer Mist
Other Supplies: Pink Cardstock; Vintage Buttons; Vines; Lace; UTEE – Ranger; and Martha Stewart Butterfly punch

  1. I love seeing the different styles of everyone. I have to say I'm an ecclectic crafter but generally lean towards, vintage, victorian and woodsy (Iknow thats weird but I love nature), my biggest thing is the details, if it means folding tiny little pleats into paper or adding layers and layers of embossing to a craft to get the effect I want I'll do it, the fussy stuff.

  2. I loveeeeeeeeeee all your styles... and I am still trying to define mine! lol! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
