~Monday's DT Feature: Kimberly Fordyce~

Hello everyone! 

Each day this week we will be featuring the debut of our new Design Team and their projects! 

Our New Monday Design Team Feature:


“I'm a wife, empty nester to three grown children, and Mamaw to two grandsons. I live in North Port, Florida. I have a passion for scrapbooking the family memories and look forward to any free time to create in my scraproom. My family is very supportive of me and my daughter is the one who encouraged me to start a blog and enter challenges. I was hooked right after I got my first follower and won my first challenge!”

Getting to know Kimberly's scrappy style and how her crafty side of life began…

1. When did you start scrapbooking/paper crafting and why?

“I was first introduced to scrapbooking around 1995 when I was invited to a Creative Memories party.  I didn't really get addicted to scrapbooking until 2005.”

2. What type of project is your favorite to make (i.e. cards, layouts, mini album, etc.)?

 “Well, if you follow me you would know I do mostly layouts. Scrapping pictures of my family and friends is my main passion!”

3. Do you have a favorite product you like to use on your projects?

“I really had to think on this one and actually made a phone call to my sister (lol) she said ink, flowers and stitching.”

 4. Who is your favorite manufacturer (i.e. BoBunny, MME, Pink Paislee)?

“Provocraft is a big favorite because I love my Cricut! The brand of paper I have the most of is probably Die Cuts With a View (DCWV), but I love My Mind’s Eye (MME) and Recollections.”
5. Do you have a scrapbook/paper crafting idol? If so, who and why?
“My ‘lil sister Lisa was my scrapbook idol although she would disagree, but when she does scrapbook, I love all that she creates! My blog idols are Fern from Fern's Creations and Beatriz from Amazing Grace. I aspire to scrap like these two ladies.”
6. What do you do in your spare time, when you are not scrapbooking/paper crafting?
“I love spending time with my grandson Isaiah, family and friends.”

7. Is there anything else you would like us to know about you?  
“I love to get comments on my work, it helps me get excited about the next project!”
