CT Spotlight: Nikki Epperson

Hey all! It's Jennifer aka Jennilyn here, shining the spotlight on Nikki Epperson this week!

1. What made you apply for Krystal Hartley's team?
I actually got a kit from her as a newcomer to DST, and I was in love!

2. What are your favorite types of products to work with?
I love, love, love paper. Sometimes it's so hard for me pick papers because I want to use them all!

3. When do you scrap? Naptimes, after the kids go to bed?
lol, all the time!!! I tend to scrap more during the day when I'm not working since my kids are older and don't have naps anymore.

4. What are your strengths as a CTM? Weaknesses?
Wow. That's a tough question. Specifically with Krystal, one of my strengths would be that I pull many elements onto a page to show them off. My weakness? hmmmm, I'm not a great enabler. I tend to get lost in photoshop and I need to work on that!

5. Show us your first page.

6. How many times do you use a product?

I *try* to use it at least twice, but I'm not very good at following that rule.

7. Do you scrap mainly for memory preservation or for creative fulfillment?
Mainly memory preservation. I tell everyone that I'm our family historian.

8. Who are some of your favorite scrappers and why?
My favorite scrappers are most definitely Jennifer Fox and our very own Krystal Hartley. Jennifer and I have styles that are pretty similar but she doesn't make a page that I don't love. And Krystal. Wowza! When she scraps, you can almost touch her pages. They are gorgeous!

9. Are you drawn to one color more than others?
I'm drawn to everything but red. But, I will say, I've made a few pages I love that actually have red in them!

10. What software do you use?
Photoshop CS2

11. What is your current favorite layout (that you made)?
I've been focusing IRL a lot on my son Lane, and I just LOVE this page featuring him!

12. What's your favorite scrap trend?
Are strings a trend? lol, I love strings.

13. What do you "just not get?" (ex. chandeliers, owls, 3-d, etc.)
Fantasy. It's pretty but not for me. At all.

14. Do you know any digi scrappers in real life?
Not yet. But I do have plans to meet one soon!

15. What's your best workflow (time management) tip when it comes to scrapbooking?
Wait? I'm supposed to be managing my time? lol, I just scrap until I'm not inspired and then take a break. Usually a few layouts at a time.

Here is a little desktop freebie I made using The World is my Oyster!
