Favorite Paper House Product: That’s a question that doesn’t have just one answer. There hasn’t been too many lines that I didn’t love. There are so many themed collections, fabulous color kits and amazing accents that you can create just about anything using the products in their amazing lines.
Paper Crafting Tool you can’t be without:  It’s not just one so I’ll share my must have list: cutter, circle cutter, finger cutter knife, Sizzix die cleaner, bone folder, Tweezers, paper punch, awl tool and sew easy ink stitch roller … all a must in my tool bag for sure.
You’ll always find this on my projects: I am never consistent but overall accents could be: ribbon, bling, flowers, sew easy ink stitching, twine, stamps, stenciling in backgrounds.
3 Things that make you unique: I love to try new things even if just once to say I tried it. I am very flexible when creating and love a variety of projects and never do just one thing all the time. I love working with others and appreciate what they have to share by creating and inspiring everyone and hope I inspire them too.
Describe yourself in 50 words or less:
I have been scrapping almost 8 years. I am a wife, mother and grandma that loves being retired and now have time to scrap to my heart’s content. I love scrapbooking along with fun things it entails with online friends, forums and FB.  Other crafts I love also are needlepoint, sewing, knitting, crochet and taking lots of photos. Family and friends are the subjects of my scrapping along with nature, ancestry and vacation sites. I live with my mom while we are building our new home in Ontario for May occupancy. We are now in Florida  where I take my scrapping with me for the extended time.

Favorite Paper House Product: I love playing with embellishments so some of my favorites are the puffy stickers, 3D stickers, and the colored cork!
Paper Crafting Tool you can’t be without: Without adhesive you can’t do much so I’d say my ATG gun is a must.
You’ll always find this on my projects: I love my enamel dots and it’s a rare layout not to have them on it.
3 Things that make you unique: I had my two children 19 minutes short of exactly 4 years apart. I was married 27 years before I got an official proposal.  Both of my children worked for Walt Disney World over several years allowing our family to spend a lot of time there.
Describe yourself in 50 words or less:  I grew up in a very creative home so creativity has always been a part of my life. While I have a very artsy, creative side I’m also very analytical, a list maker, and number loving individual. Some may say that’s contradictory. I say it’s balance at it’s best.  
Erin Reed: Video and Mixed Media Specialist

Location: Pflugerville, TX
Favorite Paper House Product: Cork Stickers!
Paper Crafting Tool you can’t be without: Scissors, they have so many uses from cutting, shaping, distressing; really an amazing tool!
You’ll always find this on my projects: Layers, distressing, mists
3 Things that make you unique: 1) I love to tackle new things, even if they are hard I make it my goal to figure it out  2) I am both creative and scientific, I come from a science and math background so all my projects have a little scientific or liner edge to them – i like random, but too random and it looks messy to me 3) I am a world traveler, I have lived in 3 countries and traveled to over 50 countries – I love to immerse myself into a culture and see what it is all about, especially the food
Describe yourself in 50 words or less:  I bring a fun, romantic, and sometimes funky feel to my projects.  I guess if you had to label my style it would be layered, romantic, shabby chic, mixed media, and pop art.  I have been called the Queen of Layers!!  I am a military wife, a stay at home mom (my children give me wonderful inspiration to work with), 2 boys and 2 girls.  I was a teacher (high school science) before I stayed at home, and I love to craft!!  My first love is my family, they mean everything to me.  My second love is crafts in all forms including scrapbook layouts, art journals, cards, mini albums, mixed media, altered items, home decor, and DIY.
