Welcome Pam Callaghan, our June Guest Designer!

For the month of June we have a very special guest designer!

Welcome, Pam Callaghan!
I have admired Pam's work since I discovered her scrapbooking several years ago. I got to know and appreciate Pam's work as a member of http://www.scrapbook.com/. Her amazing sense of design amazed me with each and every layout.

I sent Pam a set of my "Retro Blue Bird" and "Sweet Talk" buttons. Here is what she created!

Enjoy and BE inspired by what she has created for us! :)

I love how Pam used thread to create a bow in the center of one of the buttons! What a beautiful family and such sweet journaling.
I love how Pam used the Sweet Talk buttons on the scallops and as the "O" in "LOVE"! Very pretty :)

----------------------THE INTERVIEW---------------------------------

Here is what Pam had to say!
1.) Tell us a little about YOU and how you are involved in the scrapbooking industry?
-For me, it's all about having fun creating. Right now I am just creating for a couple companies and I am really enjoying it! I currently work with Anna Griffin and Marks Paper Company, two wonderful companies! I also do occasional QVC projects and some trade show work.

2.) What led you to scrapbooking? Do you remember that *first* time you sat down to create a page?
-My friend invited me to a scrapbook party shortly after my son was born. I did not want to go, but she called me to make sure I was coming. I really enjoyed myself! I bought my own supplies after that and I have been scrapping since!

3.) When you sit down to create, what are the essential items in your environment that you need to feel in the "mood" to be creative?
-When I scrapbook I like a soda or water and sometimes music. Occasionally I just like to scrapbook in my quiet scraproom. It all depends on the day!

4.) I feel most creative when........
-I feel most creative when my room is clean. I do clean up after each time I scrapbook, so that I not usually a problem. I also need to be relatively de-stressed to create a project.

5.) How do you decide what you are going to journal about... and what is your favorite way to document journaling?
-I like to journal in different ways. Mostly I do computer journaling because my handwriting is not the best. I like to make my journaling in different shapes or fit the amount of space there is left on my page.

6.) How are my buttons a good fit for your scrapbooking projects?
-It depends on the page. Sometimes I use a few, sometimes none. If I use them, it is usually about five or so.

7.)Share with us your most favorite layout and why this layout is your most favorite.....
-I love this page I did because it some of my favorite photo of my son and I. It also expresses how I feel about him. I like to shape my photos and I did it using one of my favorite shapes, a curve. I also made my journaling fit the curve which is something I like to do! I also like the bright colors and patterns of the paper.
