Today I'd like to introduce you to Kimme, one of our fabulous designers. We are so lucky to have Kimme on our team - she's so much fun to be around! Read on to find out all sorts of fun facts about Kimme and see a few of her favorite InStyle Stamps projects.
How long have you been stamping?
I went to my first stamp party back in 1999 and fell in love with making cards at that time. I had used stamps to help accent the table signs at my sister's wedding in 1993 and to decorate the labels on the cake boxes at my wedding in 1997, but didn't really pick it up as a hobby until 1999.
Do you prefer to make cards or other projects?
I am a card maker first and foremost. I do make some scrapbook pages, and buy all the supplies to alter anything, but I still consider myself a card maker.
If you were a Copic marker/Prismacolor marker which color would you be? Ooooh...I think one of the Copic BV's.
Which of your InStyle Stamps projects was your favorite?
Unfair question, I love each one until I make the next one
You are stranded in a craft store, which aisle do you sleep in?
The aisle with all the BasicGrey paper...and I wouldn't sleep, I would pet the paper all night.
What 5 words describe you? Mom, tired, Princess (in my own mind), funny, dependable
What’s your crafting style?
I don't know that there is a name for my style, but I have been told I am pink and blingy with lots of layers. I have a really difficult time making Clean and Simple cards, they actually take me longer than a layered embellished card.
Messy or clean scrap room?
My space is in the basement with the toy room. So my desk stays clean out of necessity or little fingers get into it, the rest of the room is usually a wreck until bed time.
What tool or embellishment can you not live without?
My Gelly Roll Pens, especially white and Stardust....and BasicGrey Paper ....and my Copic Markers.
What is your favorite stamping technique?
Any fun folds or any technique I haven't tried before. I always like to try things at least once.
