Member Monday with Stacy Cohen

This week's Layout of the Week was chosen by Stacy Cohen. She chose the layout below by Maria Swiatkowski. Stacy said she chose this layout because, "I love the clean lines and crisp design of Maria’s layout. The fun title and the circles accent her page perfectly! But I have to say, it was that super adorable photo that first caught my eye."

“Goofy Little Rooster”

Stacy caught up with Maria to ask her a few questions and help us all get to know this AMM girl a little better.

Stacy: How long have you’ve been active on the AMM boards?
Maria: I joined July 2008. And haven't left! I was a late bloomer in joining the online scrapbooking "world." Prior to joining AMM, I didn't belong to or really even read online scrapbook sites.

Stacy: What were your three favorite paper lines in 2009?
Maria: Basic Grey Lemonade, Pink Paislee Amber Road and October Afternoon Very Merry collections make me smile.

Stacy: How long does it usually take you to complete a layout?
Maria: Most of the time it takes me a couple hours, but I rarely get a two-hour window to scrapbook in. I just work on layouts in short bursts of time. The "Goofy Rooster" layout was a quickie, probably start to finish, only an hour. That's definitely an exception to my norm.

Stacy: If you stopped buying scrapbooking supplies all together, how long could you keep scrapping with your current stash of supplies?
Maria: Gosh, do I have to admit this?? I could probably last a year. I would need cardstock and adhesive eventually, but I have enough patterned paper and Thickers to last a long time!

Stacy: What do you have on in the background while you scrap – music, TV or nothing?
Maria: When scrapping, I like to put my Ipod on. I have a little of everything on there and just put it on shuffle.

Thanks so much Stacy and Maria. Be sure to show some love for Maria and leave a comment on this post here. You can get more inspiration by checking out Maria's full AMM gallery here.
