A Different Kid of Blog Hop

Last week, my friend, Tina at Tina's Scrap Corner, invited me to join in a bog hop.  This is an ongoing hop that gives you the chance to get to know my creative side a little more, and to meet a few of the people that inspire me.

1. What am I working on right now? 

I print my own pictures so I always have some of them ready to go. I keep a list of the pictures I want to scrap and cross them off my list when I print then.  I also always have on my desk right now the pictures from my parents "Grandparent" album.  I'm remaking it into a "Back in Time" album for my guys. With both of my parents now gone I'll pass those pictuers onto my guys in a different album.  

2. How long does it take to create a project?
I all depends on the project, a short project like a scrapbook layout can take and hour or two.  If I'm doing some heavy techniques it can take a day or two.  If I'm working on a mini album that can take at least a week sometime even more.  As for making a card I don't normally spend more than an hour at it, unless I'm designing it in Cricut Design Studio or Silhouette Studio.

3. What are my fave things I love to create with at the moment?
Everything!, but I suppose you didn't want such a vague answer.  I love the versatility of the Cricut or Silhouette machines. I have this love/hate relationship with Tim Holtz's dies.  I like that it can be applied to a guy layout with much fuss.

This is one of my favorite layouts for my guys using the Cricut and Tim Holtz dies.
My oldest picked out a 12x12 album and my youngest picked out a 8 1/2x 11 album.  So I get to scrap one of each.

4. How does your writing/creating process work?

I sort my photos by year and then by month into folders, even the photos that my guys send me.  I like to match up the photo with the paper before I start scrapping.  If no photo exists and it's for a challenge or the guys say I going to "We Fest", camping or the Car Show, I keep the page generic and don't include a photo. This way they have blank pages that they just need to add photos to

5. What inspires you?
Everything inspires me.  Blogs, Pinterest, advertisements, just about anything. 

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look into my creative process.  The three bloggers I picked for inspiration are in not particular order.

Wanda over at My Creative Corner. She mainly makes awesome cards using Stampin' Up products and I found her when I was part of a monthly craft night with a local Stampin' Up person.   

Patter at Triple The Scraps is a great inspiration to me.  I found her blog when my oldest was first deployed to Iraq.  I needed something to calm my mind so I participated in a couple of her Scripture challenges. 

Tracy at Tracy's Treasures  and her YouTube Channel TracysTreasures24  I just love the challenge her and her friend Vicky have. Tracy makes some awesome cards and tags.
