It's time to meet Designer Andra Hoffman!

It's that time again! Today we are going to meet Andra Hoffman and see some of her gorgeous work! To see all of Andra's designs for us, be sure to check out her album in our gallery!

GenCraft: Tell us a little about yourself?

Andra: First I am a wife and a mom to 4, and now Nana to 2 beautiful grandbabes! I live in Washington State with my family. I love the color pink, and polka dots!! And I am totally addicted to totes! A girl can never have too many right?

GenCraft: When did you start scrapbooking/paper-crafting?

Andra: About 8 years ago a friend took me to an all day crop for a company, and I was hooked from there. I didn't really care for the way they taught how to scrap or their style, and realized very quickly I loved buying products from everywhere!!

GenCraft: What is your favorite thing to scrap about?

Andra: Mainly it has been family, and recently it has been our grandbabes Nono and Lil Miss Ella who have graced the pages of our albums, frames and whatever Nana comes up with to add their photos to!

GenCraft: What is your favorite kind of project -- layouts, cards, altered items...?

Andra: I really enjoy altering chipboard. It is so easy and versatile. You can ink it, glue it, distress it and flat out abuse it, and it always looks awesome!

GenCraft: How would you describe your style?

Andra: I've never really paid much attention to my style. I consider myself a mood scrapper. Whatever my mood is at that moment is a reflection of what I am working on.

GenCraft: What inspires you to create?

Andra: Many things really. Life around me, my family, things on tv or in real life, and the talent of so many scrappers out there from the very beginner to the total pro! The one thing I love about scrapping and tell this to so many just starting out...there is NO right or wrong way to scrap, it is all about how you want your creation to look.

Thanks for reading all about Andra! Don't forget... there's still time to sign up to win some Queen & Co paper, an Inkadinkado stamp, mini acylic block and more! We will announce the winner on Monday! Leave a comment on the post below!

Happy Crafting!
