My Scraps & More Sketch #112 - Guest Designer Gina Lideros

Hey, everyone! We have another Guest Designer for you and this month it is the talented Gina Lideros!

Let's get to know Gina a little bit:

1) Hi, I'm so excited to be guest designing for My Scraps & More! I currently live in Northern California with my military husband of 17 years and our two
kids Kalee (16) and Matthew (13). My hobbies are: scrapbooking, working on DIY projects, camping and hiking. You can find my current blog at: I have been scrapbooking for about 19 years, I started just out of high school, back then there was only decorative scissors and stickers. I'm so glad that it has evolved so much since then!!

2) I would describe my scrappy style as trendy and fun. I usually get started on my scrapbook projects in the morning, after I have dropped my kids off at school. I take a break during the day, to take care of household things and then I usually get a burst of energy at late at night, while everyone's asleep.

3) When working with a sketch, I make the sketch first and then my page. Working with a sketch cuts down on the time it takes me to create a page. It takes the guessing work out of where to put things, and I work much faster when using a sketch.

4) The 5 trends/techniques that are my favorite right now are watercolors, stitching (machine or hand stitching), geometric shapes, electronic die cutting, and spray mist. You can usually find all five of these on most of my layouts!

Here is Gina's MASM Sketch #112
