Hello there everyone, Piradee Talvanna here to share a little bit about myself! First off, I'm absolutely honored to be part of the Fancy Pants Designs Pocket Chick family and would say that I’ve always been a crafty person, continuously creating or doing something. I was introduced to the world of scrapbooking in 2008, when I relocated from Thailand to Singapore for work (I’m originally from Bangkok). It was there that I walked into my first scrapbook store and quickly became addicted to all the beautiful papers and fun embellishments. Scrapbooking not only allows me to explore and challenge my creativity but also helps me de-stress after along day at work; as I scrap away the wonderful memories that hubby and me are creating here today.
Q: What is your favorite Fancy Pants Designs product?
A: I would have to say the pattern papers - I absolutely love the combination of colors and the fun designs (also have you seen the backsides on these papers - they're just as great to work with! Love that about Fancy Pants Designs).
Q: What is your favorite technique?
A: At the moment, it's banners (not sure if you would consider that a technique), but the ideas of banners hanging everywhere with loose embellishments here and there... I just can't stop creating with them!
Q: How long have you been scrapbooking?
A: As mentioned, I became addicted to scrapbooking once I moved to Singapore. It was here that I walked into my first scrapbook store and you should have seen me - like a five year old in a big big big candy store. And ever since then, I've been addicted! (also considering that I live about 5 mins away from the store, I think that helps fuels the addiction a bit). LOL
Q: Where do you find inspiration?
A: My main source of inspiration is from the products themselves, the colors and designs of each collection is what triggers the creativeness in me. Then there's also Pinterest with an ever growing collection of home decor and design pictures waiting to be adapted into layouts (and also sparks the every now and then home decor shopping sprees).
Q: If someone was to walk into your scrap room/area right now, what would they find?
A: Given that my scrapping area is part of my living room area, today you would find a nice clean scrapping table with a few tools here and there and my little computer (please do note, that this isn't always the case. At times, you might find me scrapping on the floor cause there's just not enough space on left on the table. LOL). However right next to the table, is a not so tidy cabinet filled to the rim (and overflowing) with scrapping supplies.
Q: What time of day do you usually scrapbook and where?
A: During the week, I usually scrap in the evening or late at night after work and mostly on weekends, while hubby is away at his soccer match.
Thanks everyone for stopping by and hope you're having tons of fun creating with the latest Fancy Pants Designs collections!
