Here's my answers to the Crealies-guest designer questions:
  • Name: Mariaan Lawson
  • Blog:
  • What or Who inspires you? I get my inspiration from everything around me and have to admit that I sometime steal ideas from my son (10) and daughters who are only 3 and 4 years old and love to craft with me.  They have not had anything influence their creativity yet so they are tend to be more original and "out of the box" then I am.
  • What do you like best: I love creating nice things, sharing and teaching other to be able to be the best they can be or as creative as they can be.
  • How would you describe your own style?  I love femine styles and was always a very girly girl but do not let this limit my creations
  • Favourite colours: Purple and Apricot but not together
  • Favourite technique: stamping and colouring
  • Favourite way of colouring: I love pencils but do also play with alcohol markers and marker pens.
  • Favourite Crealies Product:  I love the card templates and the clever way these where designed not to be to bulky to store so go watch the Youtube video showing you what they look like and how to use them.  I also love the doily elements and hope to get some CREAlies stamps soon I can  create my own backing papers and add focus to my cards and mini books.
