Tell us a bit about yourself and your family (and pets?)
My name is Candy Rosenberg, and I have been paper crafting since I was born, my mom tells me that she thinks that I was born with scissors in my hand. My husband of 16 years, and my two talented daughters live in Southern Oregon. My oldest, a navy boy is getting ready to be deployed and his new family is expecting a new little one late this year. This is forcing me to use pink a bit more than I am used to. We also bunk up with our border collie, "JJ" and a few cool fish.
How did you get started in scrapbooking? How long have you been scrapbooking?
It all started with a fellow boy scout mom. She was working on her sons scout scrapbook and asked me to join her. That was over 5 years ago, and long story short, I got quite hooked. I never did finish my sons scout book, but it is on my to do list. I do not scrap chronologically, I go with what inspires me.
What are your favorite place and time to scrap?
I am fortunate enough to have a studio, however, it has been under reconstruction for months. I have been working with the Scrapbox company to show how to use their beautiful furniture in a studio setting and the final look will be shared in a future magazine spread. Once I can share I will post it on my blog.
What is your favorite scrapbooking technique right now?
I am a distresser and inker. I dont over do it, but I have always used it to bring out elements of my pages and projects. I am also known for my extensive hand cutting, patterned paper beware!
What product(s) are you addicted these days?
I love vintage products, whether they are new and just look old or if it really is old. I love ephemera; old tickets, magazine ads and buttons. But the thing that I keep grabbing the most these days is canvas!
What inspires you creatively?
I am always thinking of new ways to scrapbook and craft with paper, but what inspires me the most is pulling out some fun products, piling them on my desk and challenging myself. That is why I love the Transparent Touches kits, I have a ton of product all in one place to play with.
What brought you to TTT?
I have been a TTT cheerleader for 4 years, at one time I owned a kit club as well, however, I remained a customer of Monicas. I just love how well her kits are put together. I have always been a fan.
What do you enjoy the most about TTT?
The fabulous variety of papers and embellishments and the choice of kits. There is one for everyone. Most people do not realize how hard it is to put one kit together nevertheless three to choose from and Monica does a fantastic job.
Do you have anything on your scrappy wish list?
I love to discover fun new products and companies, however there is one thing that is on my wish list always: one each of every thickers product ever made.
What is something about you that we may not know??
That I own a graphic design and marketing business and started out on digital scrapbooking design teams. I will do hybrid layouts from time to time. I am always amazed at the talent in the digital scrapbooking world, most traditional scrappers dont think about the fact that nearly everything they use started out being designed digitally, then printed or produced.
Be sure to check out the layouts and projects she created with TTT's June kit #1 on our blog and also the User Gallery! Thanks for being part of TTT this month!
