Beth Lemons

1) Family: I am very lucky to have a wonderfully supportive husband, Dean, and two beautiful girls, Kate and Emily, who are the subjects of 99.9% of my scrapbooking. We also have two miniature dachshunds, Chloe and Roxie.

2) Favorite color: Red!

3) Favorite Scrap Company &/or products: I have a really hard time narrowing down my list of favorites. It’s really hard since we try very hard to order only the best companies and the coolest stuff! I guess I love it all!

4) One tool you can’t live without: My Cutterpede! Finally a cutter that cuts STRAIGHT!!

5) Scrap Style: Simple. Usually one-page spreads.

6) What inspires you? Idea books and printed paper. Sometimes a paper just inspires a layout in my head. Sometimes an idea just pops into my head during the night and I can’t sleep!

7) Favorite Quote: The one I use on my kids: “Listen to me, Smalls…” The Sandlot
Also: “Lemme ‘splain…No…there is too much. Lemme sum up. Buttercup is marrying Humperdink in little less than haf an hour.” The Princess Bride

1) Family: I’ve been married to Rob for 16 years. We’ve been blessed with three incredible children: Erin is 13, Megan is 10 and Ryan is 8.

2) Favorite color: Depends on what I’m doing. I love jewel tones, almost any shade of blue, yellow makes me happy, and a good splash of red is always a plus. I really like photos printed in black and white.

3) Favorite Scrap Company &/or products: Basic Grey, Making Memories, Daisy D’s, Tres Jolie

4) One tool you can't live without: Seriously, one tool? My camera, Cutter-Bee scissors, rub-on tool, Cropadile, computer/printer and a good paper trimmer

5) Scrap Style: My style has evolved over the years from very simple and symmetrical to much more complex. I love the layered look and adding dimension to my pages. I also use a lot of rub-ons, paint, distress inks, chalks, brads and ribbon.

6) What inspires you? My faith, my family and my friends inspire me personally. As far as scrapbooking goes, I use almost anything I see as inspiration for a good layout: commercials on HGTV, magazines ads, paint sample cards, clothing stores, catalogs, the produce department, etc.

7) How long have you been scrapping? I guess I’ve been scrapping for close to 14 years now.

8) Favorite Quote: Like my favorite color, my favorite quote changes. Right now I like this one: "All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing." –Edmund Burke

1) Family: I am very close to my family; I couldn’t live without any of them. My parents Gail and Tami are the type of parents that I love and thank God everyday for. I can’t imagine my life without them teaching me the things they have. The love that they have for each other and our family has taught me how to love and start my own family someday soon. My older sister, Alicia, who lives in Colorado and has welcomed me and my fiancĂ© with open arms when we come out there to visit. My brother, Carson, who is a senior in high school and very active in sports, which keeps me scrappin those millions of sports layouts. And of course last but defiantly not least, my fiancĂ© Luke. My love and joy. I would have to say that he and the love we share is my favorite thing to scrapbook. He has made me so happy and we have shared so many great memories already before we have begun to start our new life as a married couple.

2) Favorite color: definitely blue! If I had my choice I would scrapbook everything in blue and green.

3) Favorite Scrap Company &/or products: I LOVE LOVE LOVE 7 gypsies, and Heidi Swapp. The new My Minds Eye lines that make everything match are also a new favorite just because they make my life so much easier!

4) One tool you can’t live without: Pop Dots!!! Does that count? Anyone that looks at my layouts would know this because I love dimension, I have to have it on every page! If those don’t count then I would have to say my paper trimmer, I can’t cut a straight line if my life depended on it.

5) Scrap Style: I consider myself more of the collage style scrapper. I like to take anything and everything I have in my scraproom and throw it together on a page, and magically it turns out decent.

6) What inspires you? Twopeas designers, the girls I work with here at Scrapaganza, magazines, (both scrapbooking and nonscrapbooking) and my mom’s creativity that I have been ever so blessed with even though she doesn’t scrap!

7) How long have you been scrapbooking? over 10 years!

8) Favorite Quote: “To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.”

2) Favorite color: PINK!!!!

3) Favorite Scrap Company &/or products: Heidi Swapp is my absolute favorite scrapper, and I love her stuff!! I also love any bright, fun, girlie supplies!

4) One tool you can’t live without: My computer. I use it for every single layout or project. I love downloading fonts!

8) Favorite Quote- I love quotes!! My newest favorite is: “Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things… and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” –Walt Disney

1) Family: Husband, Chris and daughter, Blair…Oh…and two really adorable shelties named Lucky and Sassy.

2) Favorite color Red, red…did I say RED!

3) Favorite Scrap Company &/or products: 7 Gypsies; Maya Road; Hambly Studios; Autumn Leaves; Basic Grey; Technique Tuesday; Cosmo Cricket and Catslife Press

4) One tool you can’t live without A sharp Xacto knife and black mini brads, OK that was two, but I just can’t live without them

5) Scrap Style: I would describe my style as “scuffed-up rough…ripped and weathered…a little rag-tag looking…the well-worn and loved” style…everything I do has a theme…it tells a story. I’m not a 2-page layout Scrapbooker, I’m more of “Project” oriented life artist!

6) What inspires you? Almost everything…a sign I see as I’m driving down a country road…the lyrics to a song…a really great quote. Rather than be inspired by colors, I usually am inspired by a central idea and then work everything in around it.

7) Favorite Quote: I have a bunch…right now my favorites are:“Most folk are about as happy as they make up their mind to be.” A. Lincoln“Choice by choice, moment by moment, I build the necklace of my day, stringing together the choices that form ARTFUL LIVING.” –unknown

2) Favorite color: RED

3) Favorite Scrap Company &/or products: I love 7 Gypsies, Heidi Swapp, Hambly Studios, Reminisce, and Jenny Bowlin Studio

6) What inspires you? My life everyday.

2) Favorite color: right now, orange. Last year (and still a favorite) “summer” / bright green

3) Favorite Scrap Company &/or products” Any chipboard, most rub-ons, Lil Davis, KI Memories, Cloud 9, and I think Hambly will be a favorite once I get my hands on it! Heidi Swapp
4) One tool you can’t live without: besides the obvious cutters, Crop-a-dile! That baby will but holes in just about anything!

5) Scrap Style “Simple Scrapbooks”... I like bold color and layering, but I like to get things DONE, so I lean towards a simpler approach. I prefer not to cut out little things, or do math! :)

6) What inspires you? BRIGHT colors! The new summer accessories. When the new summer cups, pitchers, plates and clothes come out, the energy of the colors make me want to use them in a layout! The other things that inspire me are: My children. My family. Truly a gift from God above! I am blessed beyond measure! The joy of a wonderful marriage turned family. WOW! The colors of the rainbow can't tough it. My family inspires me to create, imagine, try harder, reach further, dream bigger, love more and grow stronger. Through them I have achieved so much, and because of them I have the faith I live for.

7) How long have you been scrapbooking? I was given my first scrapbook and supplies, a Creative Memories set, in the early 90's... I “dabbled” for years. I got more serious towards the end of the 90's, but then having kids both fueled my desire to scrapbook again and reduced the time I had to scrapbook! I started back in 2001, and have really been inspired since working at Scrapaganza, and seeing new supplies so often!

8) Favorite Quote (right now... )“Life's fragile, handle with prayer.”
