Hey all, Polly Jewelle here! I am back to bring you another TLP member spotlight! This month I asked the other Polly’s here at the Pad to help pick a member to spotlight. We chose Judy aka chigirl to spotlight. Judy has been a long time member here at the Pad. She came to us back in 2010! Since then she has created a very full and stunning gallery that is sure to leave you inspired! Let’s sit back and take some time to get to know more about Judy!
Jewelle: What is your IRL name and your user name?
Judy: Judith, in the forum I am chigirl.
Jewelle: Where do you call home?
Judy: I grew up in Chicago, thus my forum name but I have lived in sunny San Diego for quite a while.
Jewelle: Are you a digital or hybrid scrapbooker? Or both?
Judy: Digital now, but I started as a card maker so I’ve done hybrid.
Jewelle: How long have you been scrapping?
Judy: 10+ years!
Jewelle: What is the starting point for your pages – photos, the story, products?
Judy: I think it’s the product that inspires me to choose my photos for a page.
Jewelle: How would you describe your style?
Judy: I think I’m all over the place with style. I love art journaling and white space pages, so from one end of the style spectrum to the other.
Jewelle: Any must-have items or techniques on all of your pages?
Judy: I love stitches and buttons, a page is not complete without some kind of fastener.
Jewelle: Do you have a favorite tip or trick you can share with us?
Judy: I don’t know if I have any special tricks, but I do like to intertwine string or ribbon around my elements.
Jewelle: Do you listen to music while you scrap? What kind?
Judy: I am totally hooked on listening to Audible books while scrapping. I have 100’s in my library. What could be better than enjoying my two favorite things at the same time? If I did listen to music it would definitely be George Strait.
Jewelle: What’s your favorite snack (if any) while you scrap?
Judy: I don’t snack while scrapping but I always have a glass of iced tea handy.
Jewelle: What time of day do you feel most creative?
Judy: This is an easy one. I don’t sleep very well so I’m usually up at 2AM, so very early morning I’m at my most creative.
Jewelle: Any pictures of your workplace you would like to share?(This is typically for hybrid scrappers, but feel free to send pictures even if you don’t do hybrid)
Judy: I don’t have any pictures but here is a description of my work space. I have two large tables set up in an L-shape with a laptop on each giving me lots of desktop space.
Jewelle: Share with us your three favorite layouts.
Judy: I love the art journailing/painty style in kits by Little Butterfly Wings. This page shows my darling granddaughters free spirit!
Judy: The trashed and torn papers by Lynn Grieveson add depth and texture to my pages. I also love to layer and cluster. This page shows off both.
Judy: I love this page, it showcases my grandsons quirky personality and my love of white space.
