That different sort of blog hop

1 Comment

This week, the two people I tagged for the Different Sort of Blog Hop (and you can see my post from a week ago here) have their posts, with their answers to the questions, for you to see.

Karen (known as kazy1) is a long-time member of UKScrappers and creates layouts for  The Scrapbook Magazine.  She is also on the team at Scrapology, on online challenge blog.  She has guest-designed for Papermaze and Sarah’s Cards, both UKS sponsors.  Her layouts and cards never fail to inspire me, and she is often featured in the monthly BlogBits round-up of inspiring posts by UKS members. I love that she scraps in the American size 8.5 inches x 11 inches. Her style is detailed and pretty, with lovely embellishment clusters that support, rather than overwhelm, the photos. She is a thrifty crafter too, and makes the most of her supplies.  Her blog is worth bookmarking for those times when your scrapping mojo is on holiday – she does a lot of sketch challenges so you might find one that is new to you.

Karen (well known to all on UKScrappers as Scrapdolly and as the one who keeps the Teams and Houses running smoothly) is one of those rare scrappers who is equally at home making paper and digital layouts.   She is also on the team at Scrapology and is on the design teams for Charmed Cards and Crafts, for digital designer Dawn Inskip, and for Pickleberrypop . Her layouts always feature lovely photos, often of her husband and their hysterical cats.  Her style is hard to describe in a few words – possibly because it encompasses so much!  If I had to pick one thing..OK two things.. that I think of when I think of her, they would be her titles (paper and digi) and her deeply drop-shadowed 3D-effect digi-layouts.  I’ve seen so many unique design ideas when browsing her blog that the one thing I DO know is I’m going to be inspired by something when I visit.  And I’m going to be amused by her LOLcats and other non-scrapping images. Her thoughtful blog posts are often more about life and the story behind the layout, what prompted her to scrap THESE photos at THIS time.  She also has a section of digital/hybrid scrapping downloads and tutorials, so be sure to check that out!

 

Do pop round to visit them!

Me?  Cleaning after the departure of DS’s girlfriend back to Scotland, and lots of tidying up, I’m afraid.  I’ll just add this alternate version of the Currently printables for you. A4 users don’t forget to print it BORDERLESS.

You should be able to add a date stamp in the bottom colourful bar if you want!
