Its time to meet....

One of the two Guest Designers for September.  
Please welcome Avina to the team this month.  

Avina joins us form Singapore.

Hi! I am Avina from the sunny little island of Singapore, married with a toddler who is often the subject of my scrapbooking endeavors!
Favorite products or something you can't live without. 
Stickles!! They instantly glam up ANY layout / card with minimal effort.  A little goes a long long way so they are worth the investment! 

When are you most creative and why?   
At night.  When the baby sleeps and when the housework is done!

Favorite manufacturer?
That's a difficult one to choose.  But I'd say that I love MME for their versatility, quality and range of products! Webster Pages for their good-enough-to-eat patterned papers.  American Craft for their Thickers and Ranger for their mediums!

Any other hobbies besides scrapbooking?   
Believe it or not, I love the "technical" part of figuring how to make envelops, embellishments and such  from scratch!  

Describe your style.     
Honestly, I would say it depends and it has developed over the years.  I probably do detailed layouts better than simple ones and bold colors are definitely a big thing for me.

Messy or organized scrapper?   
Messy when scrapping but after every few projects, I have to do a massive clear up to "discover" new stuff I have forgotten about! LOL!

Where do you create?  Do you have a room, corner, designated spot.   (You can attach pictures if you want)
I create in my craft room come study room which I share with my husband.  Most of my stuff is displayed on a IKEA shelf and some hidden in the built in cabinet.  I'm a huge IKEA fan (as you can see) but where else do you find such great stuff that isn't too expensive?  I also use lots of Daiso ($2 shop in Singapore) products that make sorting and organising such a breeze!

Favorite color combo.
Depends on the mood!  But black, white and red never fails to stun!

Favorite non
 -scrap related store to shop at.  
Daiso!  Great place for organisational things and things to alter and craft stuff! All for $2 an item! (PLUS near my fave LSS!)

Avina's blog will be posted on the sidebar all month long!
