Hello everyone! Happy Friday!! Today we all have the pleasure of getting to know the talented Carolyn King a little better! I’m super excited to have Carolyn on the team. She’s quite a talented paper crafter and I think you’ll enjoy her work.
I have been blogging for the past few years at http://myblogbycammie.blogspot.com
Q: How long have you been paper crafting?
I have been paper crafting for the past seven years, although I pretty much grew up doodling and making things with paper and glue.
Q: What made you start paper crafting?
I started scrapbooking with a moms group after our family was moved across the country when my husband was in the army. From there, I started stamping and card making. And the rest is history!
Q: What is your favorite type of paper crafting project to make?
This is a tough question. It changes all the time….I actually love making cards, scrapbook pages, altered items…anything. I just enjoy it all!
Q: What is your ‘must have’ paper crafting tool?
My MUST have paper crafting tool is good sharp pair of scissors.
Q: What inspires you most?
I have been pretty active in the paper crafting community for years and I have to say the sheer talent of so many people is a huge inspiration. I am always trying to improve and I love that crafty people share so much of their talents with others. I am hugely inspired by Lori and have been since I found her work through Echo Park paper. I am so excited to work with her designs and hope I can do them some justice in my projects.
Q: What are some of your favorite colors to work with?
I love bright colors….so I tend to gravitate to any bold colors and paper companies that use bright colors in their designs.
Q: What is your favorite type of embellishment?
My favorite embellishment changes all the time too! But I would have to put buttons and hemp/string near the tippy top!
Q: What other crafty things do you enjoy?
I like to paint and draw but I don’t do either much anymore. I really prefer playing with paper.
Q: What are some of your other hobbies and passions?
I love to run, play with my kiddos, watch television and read.
Thanks to Lori for this awesome opportunity. I cannot wait to get started and work with all the amazing designers on this team.
Look at the darling notepad that Carolyn created using THIS cupcake shape. I love how she’s taken an ordinary shape and turned it into a notepad. You could use this concept to create other items such as cards, etc.
