Peachy Keen Stamps :: Getting to Know Lorie

Hello Hello! I know you are all eagerly awaiting the sneak peeks for our September release - and we have some coming tonight! :) What I've got for you this afternoon is a Q&A with another one of our designers, Lorie! She is as sweet as they get, and our Peachy family feels so lucky to have her on our team and more importantly, as our friend!

How long have you been a designer for Peachy Keen Stamps?
I joined the PKS family right about the time of the launch of the challenge blog. June of 2009, I think.

How would you describe your design style?
Whew! That's a tough one. The first word that comes to mind is busy. Seems like the more I can work into a card, the happier I am! LOL!!! Clean and simple is very difficult for me.

What is your FAVORITE Peachy Keen Set?

Oh, without a doubt, it's (PK-19 and PK-19A) What's So Funny. That is one of my favorite images of all time, and one that I used to tole paint from Kathy's Paint On A Happy Face books. That little snowman makes me smile every time I see him.

Besides stamping, what other crafts and hobbies do you enjoy?
Well, of course, tole painting, but since discovering Copics, I don't paint much anymore. I also love to crochet. Once I stumbled onto the card making scene about 6 years ago, pretty much all of my crafting has been focused on that. I am so hopelessly addicted!

Who inspires you?
Well, Kathy J. Has been inspiring me for a long, time, AND of course my fellow DT members are a constant source of inspiration. I visit Splitcoaststampers often, and I surf a lot of the challenge blogs, especially for inspiration for layouts/sketches. My list of favorite blogs to visit just keeps growing and growing.

You're asked to get crafty in a room with absolutely no supplies -you can bring five tools. What do you bring with you?

Hmmmm... My Making Memories self sharpening paper cutter, Copics, Crop-A-Dial, Big Shot, ATG gun. I have a pretty powerful addiction to patterned paper, so I'm sure I'd try to sneak in some of that, too!

What is your crafty space like?

Small, but workable. I've managed to cram a lot of stuff into a tiny little space, but it works for me. I always have the best intentions about keeping my space free of clutter, but those intentions quickly fade when I start creating. As soon as I start losing things, I know it's time to stop and clean it up.

What is your favorite music to play while creating?
I don't usually listen to music when I'm creating. My favorite thing is to have the window open when the weather's nice. I like to hear the outside sounds, and have that country breeze blowing in. I have a set of wind chimes right outside my window, and I love to hear those. I also like to have the TV on in my craft room. I don't often watch, so I guess I just like the noise.

We asked each designer to provide an image of their favorite Peachy Keen project to date.

Here is Lorie's! {It just happens to feature her favorite PK stamp, too!}

And here's our favorite project by Lorie! It showcases two of our best selling sets (PK-570 Everyday Faces and Faceless Fruit) gorgeously and the detail is amazing. One of her many jaw-droppers!

Come back Sunday to find out more about Janice!
