Hi Fancy Pants Designs fans! I am Betsy Veldman and I'm so pleased to be joining you here today. I don't know about you, but I've been loving all of the new product reveals this past week! I guess it's my turn to be in the Pocket Chick Spotlight. I've been designing for Fancy Pants Designs since the beginning of this year and have been loving it. Fancy Pants Designs products have had a place in my craft room for years. In fact, I have probably owned at least bits and pieces of almost every collection they've ever released! Besides working with Fancy Pants Designs, I am a Go-to Gal for Paper Crafts Magazine and a designer for Papertrey Ink, an online stamp retailer. Outside of my paper life, I am a wife of 14 years, and a mother to three busy kiddos, my youngest of which is looking forward to starting Kindergarten this fall! Quiet time ... whatever will I do with it? Oh yeah ... make stuff! :-)
Q: What is your favorite Fancy Pants product?
A: I'm thinking everything from the new Hopscotch line is my new favorite. :-)
Q: What is your favorite technique?
A: Stamping. Hands down. You can get so creative and get so many different looks from a single stamp set.
Q: How long have you been scrapbooking?
A: I started scrapbooking shortly after my oldest child was born, so about 12 years ago. Lately though, my focus has been card making and stamping. Working with Fancy Pants Designs has renewed my love for scrapbooking though, and I am so thankful for that! I have so many photos that need to be put into albums to be enjoyed.
Q: Where do you find inspiration?
A: Lately it's Pinterest. If I'm stuck, I do a search for something on Pinterest and 9 times out of 10 something will inspire me and I'll literally jump out of my chair to get to work! :-)
Q: If someone was to walk into your scrap room/area right now, what would they find?
A: Hmm ... 3 kids, a dog, a husband, stacks of stamps and papers that need to be put away, my latest pages and cards, a stack of clothes that need to be mended (making pretty paper things is way more fun), and my daughter's latest sewing project. Let's just say the craft room is typically the busiest room in the house. But it's more fun that way. :-)
