Tuesday Spotlight

Today's Spotlight we have sweet 
Who makes the most gorgeous Sassy creations..

She made this gorgeous card and tag for us with sweet Tammy on 

*Start by telling us a little about you:
Hi I am Julia, I am in my early 30’s and Live in Inverness Scotland. I work from home as a secretary, so it’s great sometimes I can be at work in my Pyjamas but as long as I use my best telephone voice no one knows!! And nearly every spare moment I have is spent on crafting.

*When did you start card making and what made you start?
I have been crafting since I was a little girl, I first started with sewing, making my own hair accessories until I moved onto making my own clothes. I have done cross-stitch, cake decorating, knitting. I took art at school and was always sketching and painting.

 I used to look at the “handmade style” cards in shops the type that had a bit of corrugated card and a paper flower, and I thought I could do that and it would save me money ... I started out with old wrapping paper dried flowers and wet glue. Then about 6 or 7 years ago my mum bought me some crafting goodies as a present and the obsession began from there. It hasn't saved me money, in fact it costs me a small fortune but I love it so I don't care!!

 *What is your preferred coloring medium?
At the moment it is copic’s but I keep looking at the beautiful effect of Prisma pencils on Kraft so I think that is the next thing on my wish list.

 *What is your fav Simply Sassy stamp?
Oooh this is difficult I love so many of them and as soon as I saw this question at least 5 popped into my head, so I have based this on the one that I have inked up the most which is High School Student, I have recently purchased winking student, and I think she could quickly catch up in the inking department!! .... I do Love the girls with the Glasses!

*How did you notice the Simply Sassy stamps the first time?
I am a huge fan of Sugar Nellie , I follow the blog, and I am lucky enough to live about an hour away from Elgin the home of Sugar Nellie, so I was eagerly awaiting the release of the first Simply Sassy Stamps.

*What is your favourite style (card making)?
I don't think I really have a style, but I definitely have phases ... ie shabby chic or C&S ... I love it all, I think I most love masking, I enjoy trying to create whole scenes by using lots of rubber stamps.

*And what would you love to see more of at the Simply Sassy blog?
In the risk of sounding really corney, I love it just the way it is ... 
I always love looking at all the inspiration and the tutorials.

Here are some of the amazing Sassy creation you can find in Julia's blog but do go visit her as you really get a lot of inspiration looking through her blog!!
(yes it was really hard picking just a few to show you here!!)
