I have been with Inkido as a Special Guest Designer since August
2013  & was recently appointed to their 2014 Design Team.


Inkido products epitomise beauty to me. 
They are soft and floral & my favourite type
 of "wallpaper" prints, which for me are the
 easiest type of patterned papers to work with.

I love that they also create great quality rubber stamps 
(there's just something awesome about rubber stamps -
 to me they stamp clearer & sharper than anything else)


 as well as low-key bling dots (great for the more modern
 take of blinging up a page subtly) & pretty flowers that 
I often mist up to match my layout. 


Today I am going to share with you SIX random facts about 2013.

{I live in Durban, South Africa, where it is very 
HOT so that will explain my numbers 4 & 6}

1.  My TOP TEN songs were :-

1)  Millionaires by The Script
2) Demons by imagine Dragons 
3)  Young & Beautiful by Lana del Rey
4) Let Her Go by Passenger
 5) Wrecking Ball and 
6)  23 by Miley Cyrus
 7) Royals and 
8) Tennis Court by Lorde 
9) Legacy and 
10)  The Monster by Eminem


2)  My best purchase of 2013.

 

3) My favourite movie 
(French with subtitles).

4)  My favourite shoe brand - Ipanema


 3)  My fave new scrapbook artists discovered :- 
Limor Webber (Canada) 
  Kasia Krzyminska (Poland), 
Tusia Lech (Poland) &
Riikka Kovasin (Finland)


5). My fave techniques for 2013 -
 mist splattering 
reverse stenciling 
 random embossing 
 stamping with plain black archival ink 
& chunky embossing using an embossing dabber 


6.  My favourite toe-nail colour -

Well that is enough information about ME! I hope YOU had an awesome 
2013 & I wish you all the best for 2014.  Happy Hopping!!!
