Featuring Barbara...

Hello friends, this is Deepti and I am here to introduce another amazingly talented, brilliant and fun crafter Barbara Murphy. You must have come across her fascinating creations through a lot of  challenge blogs for whom she designs and wondered how is she able to create such wonders every time…  Whenever I make a trip to her blog, I usually get stuck there. So, without further wait let me take you to her creative world

Name – Barbara Murphy

1. Tell us a little about yourself and your family.
I'm 38, single and owned by one very bossy cat, Rosie. My family is scattered across Canada, but we keep in touch regularly. I have a niece and nephew who also love card making...they sell theirs at a local farmer's market and have regular clientele now! 

2. How and when did you start crafting?
I started crafting in 2009 when I tried making my own Christmas cards with a friend. I was hooked!

3. From where do you draw your inspiration?
If I'm creating a card with someone in mind, they usually inspire my design. The things they like, their personal style, the reason I'm making the card…

4. How would you describe your style?
CAS but sometimes I like to try dressing things up!

5. What are the 5 top tools in your crafting space?
ScorBuddy, detail scissors, Copics, Cuttlebug (and dies) and ALL of my stamps ;)

6. What’s your favorite technique?
Coloring is my favorite technique. Copics, Prismacolor pencils...I love 'em all!

7. What are your go-to colors?
Hmmm... there are many color combos that grab my attention but my all-time fave would have to be red, white and baby blue.

8. Do you sell your projects?
No, I donate them to local charities who choose to distribute them or sell them for fundraising activities/auctions.

9. What do you do when you aren’t crafting? Job? Other hobbies and interests?
I work full-time in the telecommunications industry as a cable designer for copper and fiber optic circuits. Photography is another hobby of mine.

10. Are you currently designing for any blog?
I design for CAS on Sunday, Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge, Little Tangles and The Alley Way Stamps.

Wasn’t this an amazing interview...even more interesting is to know that the design element exists both in her professional and creative life. Thank you so much Barbara for sharing with us. I am sure you loved the few creations she shared with us and now my friends its time for you to get much more inspired by visiting her Blog. Enjoy!!
