Hello Lesley here and welcome to Inspired By All The Little Things! This is a weekly inspiration challenge blog and each week we feature a wonderful designer who inspires us as an artist!
This week I have invited my dear friend Katie Brooks. Katie used to design for me over at FUSION and I adore her inspiring card making style!
I asked Katie to share a bit about herself...
1. What is the name of your blog? When and why did you start it?
KBStamps is my blog. I started it in 2008. I can't believe I have had it for that long! I started because I wanted to create and share those creations, simple as that. Still do. :)
2. What is your style of card making?
My style of card making is pretty varied. I tend to pick up lots of styles of different things I like, layered, shabby chic, cute, etc. I enjoy building scenes and probably more often than not I go for cute. I am not great at CAS designs, I can't help but want to fill up the card! But I do try my hand at it every now and then and once in a while I am successful!
3. Who inspires you as a designer?
There are so many people that inspire me as designers. My inspiration comes from varied people depending on my mood. A few of my fave designers are Yainea (My paper Journey), Brandi (Yankee Belle Stamper) and Joni (Papell with Love).
4. What sort of things inspire you as a card maker? Photos? Sketches? Other designers?
Everything inspires me as a card maker, other designers, pins, photos, nature... you name it and I am inspired. I love the quote, "Art imitates life imitates art," so very true!
5. Share something about yourself that we may not know?
Hmm.. something about me. I'll share a few things. First I have Multiple Sclerosis, it can be a hard illness to deal with given that I work full time and have a child. On a happier note, I am a big nerd who likes to laugh a lot. My husband and I are always laughing. Finally, I believe in the possibility of Bigfoot and Yeti's (you'll notice I have a lot of stamps with those silly folks), I mean it is such a big world out there and new species are being discovered every day, so why not those. I agree that it might not be very probable, but it is totally possible
Here is Katie's card using this week's inspiration!
The challenge designers have also created a card for this week's inspiration! These ladies just inspire me SO much!!! I hope you will play along with us this week! We would love to have you join us!
