~ New Sunday DT: Ashley Hamm~

Please help me welcome our new Sunday DT: 

ASHLEY HAMM


"I'm a 27 year old registered nurse in a medium security prison living on the corner of a busy downtown intersection with my amazing attorney boyfriend & our adopted black Lab, Bentley. I love scrapbooking, Gary Allan, reading, & running."

Get to know more about Ashley and her crafty side of life:

1. When did you start scrapbooking/paper crafting and why?
I started scrapbooking when I was 16 years old. I've always been sort of sentimental, hanging onto ticket stubs/brochures/letters from boyfriends/etc & I have always been the one amongst my friends who has the camera out. Scrapbooking just sort of put a name to what I'd been doing all along.

2. What type of project is your favorite to make (i.e. cards, layouts, mini album, etc.) ?
Layouts, but I am trying to do more cards.

3. Do you have a favorite product you like to use on your projects?
I don't think I have a favorite product. I like to use clusters of embellishments & I'm starting to use my Cricut & my stamps more & more. My process is to drag everything out that might work with the layout, & then I choose from there.

4. Who is your favorite manufacturer (i.e. BoBunny, MME, Pink Paislee)?
One of my favorites is Pink Paislee & I also love American Crafts.

5. Do you have a scrapbook/paper crafting idol? If so, who and why?
There's so much inspiration out there! As a younger scrapper with no kids, I really love Kelly Purkey's work, I think Stephanie Howell's journaling is so heartfelt, & I have been a fan of Shannon Tidwell's design since I first started scrapbooking.

6. What do you do in your spare time, when you are not scrapbooking/paper crafting?
I love to read so if I have some quiet time I grab a book. Right now I'm working through the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. It is hilarious! In the evenings we take the dog for a jog or work on one of the many projects we've got going on around the home.

7. Is there anything else you would like us to know about you?
My boyfriend is an attorney & his practice is on a busy downtown intersection on a 100+ year old building. We live in an apartment above with our adopted black Lab, Bentley. I've been a registered nurse for five years & I've worked at a nearby prison for three years. We also volunteer for our local humane society & Love of Labs (lolin.org).
