Introducing our November Guest Designer ~ Janna Werner (Giveaway)

My bio: Janna Werner lives in North Germany, together with her husband, the dog Sindri, two rabbits and a few foster fishes. Janna´s love for papercrafts and mixed media art evolved in 2010 when a friend introduced her to scrapbooking. Since then she has been working together with well-known papercrafting companies, magazines and international designers/artists. She is currently doing design work for Crate Paper, entreArtistes magazine, Elle´s Studio, OhDeerMeKit by Freckled Fawn American Crafts, and Two Peas in a Bucket.

How long have you been scrapbooking and why did you start?
- I started papercrafting in 2010 and scrapbooking in 2011. A friend of mine introduced me to scrapbooking and it didn´t take long until I got hooked. I always loved stationary, pens and pretty paper, so this was the perfect hobby for me.

How would you describe your scrapbooking style?
- I guess it depends on my mood. I love shabby and filigrane designs in light colors, but sometimes I also enjoy creating a colorful and straight layout. The more I got on my mind, the straighter and cleaner my pages get.

What do you like about kit clubs?
- The surprise and excitement of what will be in the next kit. I also find it convenient that someone else thought about what fits together and/or what might look great on a page or any other papercrafting project. Usually there items in a kit that I would not have grabbed myself, but in the end I adore them. Great for stepping out of my comfort zone from time to time.

What are 2 blogs you get inspiration from?
- Tara Anderson, The Pink Couch and Stephanie Dagan´s blog are two fantastic blogs, but there are tons of blogs that I enjoy, it always feels unfair to me to name only a couple, because I get inspired by so many people.

If you were stuck in Paris, what are 5 scrapbooking supplies you would want to have with you (besides your camera and photos)?
- Paris?! No way I would scrapbook then ;) I´d rather eat Crepes and climb the Eiffel Tower, visit The Louvre and improve my French. Well ok, just in case I get stuck for a veeery long time.. I´d love to have my sewing machine with me (handy, right?!), white cardstock, a black pen, scissors and glue. Embellishments are everywhere, so I think I would be ok with those 5 things :-D
- The variety of supplies - there are light, but also colorful items in the kit. Furthermore there are tons of embellishments in it (although I wouldn´t need them in Paris, I am a sucker for embellishments ;-D ).
