Meet Our August Guest Designer Michelle Wedertz

Hello! My name is Michelle Wedertz. I am a wife to an awesome adventuresome husband and a mother to 3 beautiful and sometimes crazy kiddos-Hayden, Maleia, and Allora. When I am not running my family around or taking care of them I spend my time scrapping, reading, pinning, and watching the Food Network. LOL. I am so excited to be sharing my creations with you this month!

Guest Design Q&A

1. How long have you been scrapbooking and why did you start? I took my first scrapbook class many moons ago when my twelve year old son was little because I wanted to make a baby book for him. My scrapping became more of a "lifestyle" when I became a SAHM when my daughter was born in 2010. LOL. My brain likes to be occupied and scrapping does that for me.

2. How would you describe your scrapbooking style? This is tough. I tend to jump around a bit depending on what is inspiring me at the moment. But if I had to nail it down, I would say simple design with layers.

3. Which scrapbookers have influenced you most? Jen Jockish--she layers like no other. Janna Werner--does wonderful things with whitespace.

4. What is your favorite thing about kit clubs? I love that I can get a variety of products that all co-ordinate with each other. I have no problem shopping for scrapping supplies, I quite excel at it actually, but I like the mix-and-match appeal of a kit as opposed to myself just buying one collection. It's sort of like have a personal shopper, which makes me feel very cool!
5. If you departed on a long family vacation this summer, what are your 5 favorite scrapbooking items you would bring with you (besides your camera and photos!)? Paper. Paper trimmer. White thread. Mist. Black pen.

6. How would you describe the Citrus Twist August kit and what do you enjoy most about the kit? I would describe Citrus Twist's August kit as a little vintage with a splash of modern! What I enjoyed most about the kit is that for the most part it's neutral in theme and color, but there is a beautiful splash of color that just makes it all pop off the page!
