The Cut Shoppe's "Getting to Know You" blog hop
For all those who are not familiar with me, my name is Nathalie (a.k.a. Tachita, my spanish nickname since birth, and what i am called at home). I am blessed to be at a stay-at-home wife and mom to two teenagers and a fur baby.
How many times in a week, do you work on something scrapbook related?
I discovered scrapbooking when my kids were little, once they grew, I started to take up scrapbooking more seriously, and now I use up all my nights and most of my free time creating visual memories for my family. Every night you can find me working on projects for my albums, Scrapbook Nerd, and now The Cut Shoppe.
My family and friends are my inspiration to capture memories, and create beautiful pages where i can document our life adventures. My pages are full of my photos especially that of my kids -nieces and nephews included -, even my fur baby has his own album...
What is your favorite color to use on your layouts/projects? What is your least favorite color?
I have different taste in colors, it all depends on what I am inspired at the moment, however, I tend to gravitate towards teal and pink shades with lots of white space around them... I still get intimidated by orange colors, i always think pumpkin and halloween -but I am slowly learning to love it -.
Why do you like using cut files on your layouts/projects?
It wasn't until last Christmas that my family gifted me with a Silhouette Cameo, and it was love at first cut for me. I love how a simple cutfile can transform your ideas into a project with such ease and beauty. I am still amazed on how the same cutfile can be used in many projects and always look brand new, it makes for inifinite possibilities.
What are some of your other favorite hobbies? If you were not a scrapbooker, what other hobby do you think would consume most of your time?
Though I love this craft, you can easily find me walking around with my camera in hand (I love photography), reading a book while enjoying some coffee, watching my son play soccer, crocheting, and/or baking treats whenever I need some extra inspiration ( I am a certified Professional Baker )
1. I have a Chemical Engineering Degree (left the profession to become a mom),
2. I love dark chocolate (the darker and bitter, the better it tastes),
3. I was a competitive swimmer as a child (now i am out of shape),
4. I own a rather large shoe collection (i love them, even when i don't wear them),
5. After over 25 years in Canada (speaking English 24/7) I still haven't lost my Spanish accent ;) .
Today, I am sharing with you a new layout created using the new digital Sunny Side Up collection by Ashley Horton for the Cut Shoppe, the Funky Floral cutfile and the Girls Wanna Have Fun cutfile from the Cut Shoppe for Scrapbook Nerd. The combo of the digital collection and the cut files creates a beautiful frame for the pictures of one of my best friends and I at our 'breakfast date'.
|The title was created using the Girls Wanna Have Fun designed by The Cut Shoppe for ScrapbookNerd.com|
|The flower was created with the Funky Floral cut file from the Cut Shoppe|
