Member Monday with Stacy Cohen

A new week and a new Layout of the Week, and this week we have a layout from Stacy Cohen. Stacy chose this layout by Bethany Kartchner, "Cutie Patootie". Here is what Stacy had to say about choosing this layout.

Bethany’s layout just jumped out at me in the gallery. It was the bright, beautiful colors that first caught my eye. But when you look closer there’s so much more to see. I just adore the handmade flowers, and I love the all the different textures and mediums Bethany used on the page . . . including alcohol inks and mists. Bethany layouts are always so full of cool techniques, and this one is no exception!"

Here is a little Q & A I did with Bethany:

1. How long have you been scrapbooking? Since 1995. I did my first scrapbook at the kitchen table in college. It was of my internship in Belgium the summer before. I was so proud of it!

2. How long does it typically take you to finish a layout? It depends on how much time I have! I'm normally a very slow scrapper because I don't have big blocks of time and I get interrupted a lot. I'd say it normally takes me about 3-5 hours per layout. Of course, that varies with the degree of detail. I recently completed a layout in less than 2 hours and I was quite proud of that achievement!

3. How would you describe your style? Whimsical freestyle.

4. What are your “must haves” when it comes to scrapping? Cardstock, chipboard, Mod Podge, buttons, paint or mists, my pens and my sewing machine

5. Tell us one (or two or three) of your guilty pleasures? Hot chocolate, caffeine free diet soda and being alone in my studio.

Be sure to leave Bethany some love on this post here or on her layout in the gallery here. You can get more inspiration from her entire gallery here.
