Member Monday with Larissa Albernaz

We're back for another Member Monday! This week's pick comes from design team member Larissa who chose Pearl, or "paperperfections" as she is known on the boards. Here's the layout Larissa chose.

"Looks good, iphone Me"

Here's what Larissa had to say about choosing this layout. "I chose Pearl (paperfections) this time... because I love the beautiful colors, the contrast, the title, the design and the cool photos on this layout. Pearl always shows her beautiful work in a fun, bright, and creative style."

Larissa caught up with Pearl to ask her a few questions, so read on to get to know this girl a little better.
1) Tell us a bit about yourself. What got you started in scrapbooking? My name is Pearl and I'm a SAHM to 2 wonderful children, living in Sunny Singapore. I first started scrapbooking after my wedding in 1993 - my wedding dress was also featured in a top local women's magazine in their bridal feature (but not modeled by me ! lol) and I still have that magazine page in that album which wasn't made with acid free products! After the birth of our daughter in 1995, I started cardmaking via punchart and acquired the tools, punches and papers in the hopes that they would be useful for my kids at the right age. Well, I'm still the main user of all that product and tools! From 2006, onwards, there was such a shift in products available in the papercraft industry and I started using more scrapbooking products in my cardmaking. Magazines and on-line galleries were full of inspiration, so by October 2006 I started scrapbooking again and have never looked back since.
2) What three supplies would you not scrap without? Patterned paper, paper trimmer & adhesive !
3) What is your favorite part about scrapbooking? I really enjoy the creative process - using color, patterns and different mediums to capture a moment in time on paper and then sharing my creations online with many like minded creative ones and from around the world.
4) What are your favorite products and manufacturers? Right now they would be Prima everything - from flowers to papers to lace! I also love my 12 bottles of mists by Maya Road & Tattered Angels and my black Sakura Aqualip pen.
5) Tell us about scrapbooking [art and craft] in your country Scrapbooking in Singapore is a very vibrant scene if sales at our 2 major LSS are anything to go by! The latest and greatest are here every week faster than reaching many stores in the US from what we can tell! That, coupled with good consumer promotions, really fuel the addiction to add to our ever growing scrapbooking stash! And it's not rare to see young men buying supplies either in our LSS- either by themselves or with girlfriends/wives in tow.
Thanks Pearl and Larissa for inspiring us today. Leave Pearl some love by commenting on this post or by visiting her gallery here.
