December Guest Designer Steffi Ried + Giveaway!!

Hello! My name is Steffi Ried and I live with my little daughter and my husband in the south part of Germany. I´m working in the administration of a energy supplier. But, I would say my big passion is my love for papercraft and photography! All these things have accompanied me all my life. I started scrapbooking in 2012 and I love to play with all the beautiful patterned papers, embellishments and watercolors. My layouts, mini albums and photos are mostly about my little girl, our travels and the little moments in my life. And what is also interesting about me? I enjoy my life as a mommy, to travel, coffee, chocolate, warm summer evenings and I love to listen movie soundtracks during my scrapbooking-sessions :-) I thanks a lot CitrusTwist to be a guestdesigner this month and I hope you enjoy what I created with this beautiful kit! You can find more about my crafty projects on my blog  or on Instagram

Guest Design Q&A
 1.   How long have you been scrapbooking and why did you start?
I started scrapbooking in 2012. My daughter was born and I searched a good idea
for a mini album about her.
2.   How would you describe your scrapbooking style?
I can't say that I  have a "special style" so far. But I like bright colors and I love to play with watercolors and mixed media. So I often use white cardstock as background for my layouts. Also I like to create many little lovely details on my layouts and mini albums.
3.   What scrapbookers have influenced you most?
I get my inspirations from so many different scrapbookers and paper crafters, but for projects with mixed media Anna Maria Wolniak is my favorite.

4.  What is your favorite thing about kit clubs?  
I love the mix of patterns and colors. So it makes easier to create layouts, mini albums...
If I had to choose all the papers and embellis for my crafts, it takes so much time! When I see the different items from the kit I get the ideas which photos fits perfectly for the colors - that make so much fun!
5.  What are your 5 favorite scrapbooking items?
I`m absolutely in love with...sequins, wood veneers, enamel dots, watercolors, color shine sprays
6.  How would you describe the Citrus Twist December Main kit and what do you enjoy most about it?
I think the colors are very warm and harmoniously - perfect for the cold season. It's not a typical christmas kit but you can still create a great layout about this topic...and I felt in love with the enamel dots. Die selection of embellis is huge and flexible to use - it's awesome!

**Make sure to leave her some love to WIN ONE of her favorite things!!!**
