It's time to meet Designer Leah Schaeffer!
Today we are meeting Designer Leah Schaffer and we're going to see some of her beautiful work! To see more of Leah's work be sure to visit her blog: BeeingCreativeandFeelingCherry!
GenCraft: Tell us a little bit about yourself?
Leah: Well first things first, I am a SAHM to 3 young children. They help me stay in shape by the constant cleaning up after them! LOL! My husband is a local police officer so there is a lot of excitement all around in my life! I have a large family and enjoy spending time with my 3 sisters and my niece. It is important to me to find happiness in the small things in life because it is those things that fill our days. I also really enjoy being outdoors so one of my very favorite things to do is go to flea markets, I get to be outside and shop!
GenCraft: When did you start scrapbooking/paper-crafting?
Leah: I have only seriously crafted for a few years now. It all must have been fate because I randomly came across the Cricut machine and got it for Christmas (thanks to my MIL!) even before I really understood what it did! LOL!
GenCraft: What is your favorite thing to scrap about?
Leah: My wild and crazy duo! My 4 year old daughter and 5 year old son! And lets not forget my baby boy who is turning a year old next month!
GenCraft: What is your favorite kind of project -- layouts, cards, etc?
Leah: I am just beginning to do a few altered projects but my real love is scrapbooking and card making. I couldn't do without either craft!
GenCraft: How would you describe your style?
Leah: This is a tough question for me to answer because I don't see myself as having a style. I really enjoy trying different styles, different techniques. I do love bright, fun and funky designs. I love being creative and do not worry about perfection so I feel free to try new things, whether they work out or not, is another story! LOL!
GenCraft: What inspires you to create?
Leah: The most inspirational thing to me are the creations my fellow crafters make! I love nothing more then to sit and visit blogs, crafting forums and look at gallery after gallery of projects. I am blown away with the creativity of others. I can't imagine not having the online community of friends that I have made. I love chatting with friends about a tutorial they have found or a product or tool we can't live without.
