Happy National Scrapbook Day everyone! I challenged 24 of our designers to create an "All About Me" layout, giving us a peek into a little part of their lives. Each of them also answered five quick scrapbooking related questions. We will be sharing these 24 layouts throughout the day. So sit back, grab a snack, and get to know our designers just a little bit more, and hopefully their projects will inspire you the next time you go to create!
”Saker jag gillar”, by Carina Lindholm.
I rarely make layouts about myself, so this was a fun challenge for me. I made a layout about a few things I like at the moment. I also incorporated some of my favourite colors and patterns on this layout. I had so much fun making this I really must make more “all about me” layouts in the future.

And now for some scrapping Q&A's:

supplies/products that you cannot scrap without?
Patterned paper, Designer tapes, Different kind of twines, Scallop border punch & and of late i LOVE using clothes pins on my projects.
2. What do you listen to while you
scrap? TV, music, or do you do your best working in silence?

“I'm Not a Girly Girl”, by Sheri Feypel.
As the title goes I am not a girly girl, but I do love all of the girly, pretty products on the market and rarely get a chance to use them. So, for my layout I chose to girly it up with feathers and crochet hearts along with some splashes of colors. Loving how all of the pink elements pop off the grey background.

In no particular order- Foam pop dots, buttons, Pattern paper, a good adhesive and alpha stickers/chipboard (is that two?).

I usually have my ipod plugged in while scrapping and I like a wide range of music but my favorite is Bon Jovi (he sings well too ya know).

My layout are in nice piles on a few shelves in my studio. I have good intentions of putting them in albums, but honestly I would rather be scrapbooking that filing. Someday they will have a more permanent home, someday.
