Before You Go....Get To Know Gilmoregirl a bit more!

Who are you? Tell more about you & your family!

My name is Kim. My screen name “Gilmoregirl” comes from my favorite TV show “Gilmore Girls.” I have been married for 10+ years and I have 3 kids ages 8, 7, and 4. I am a transplant from the western US to New England and I love it! I am also an attorney and just recently went back to work full-time. I try not to post my kids names anywhere on the web so if you wonder about the name changes that is why I scrap so that my kids can know what life was like with me. I only get them for a short fraction of their lives and I want them to remember it, the good, the bad, and the photoshoped!

What is your next learning goal for scrapping?

My scrapping goal for 2010 is to focus on learning more about design. Balance, grids, color…just more about graphic design in general. My hope is that if I learn more about the technique when I finish a page and go “something is just wrong” I can fix it! I learned in 2009 that I am not a photographer! I like to make my pictures look better, but I have no patience for shutter speed and lighting. I will leave the photography to my husband.

Mojo-loss or scrappers block is a common thing among scrappers - how do you deal with this when it happens to you?

Surfing the galleries always works. I have a few stand-by people that I go to when I need quick inspiration. But really I look for inspiration everywhere. Magazines, flyers, billboards; when I pay attention the ideas are endless. I also make sure to look back at my own gallery frequently, so I can remember why I do this!

If stranded on an island without internet, what five Oscraps kits/things would you want on a cd to scrap with?

That is a hard question! Taylormade “November Rain” kit (I use those papers all the time) and all the fading emotions word art, Paislee Press “Happy as a Lark” kit, Leiko Beck Designs subtly inked overlays, and Nina scraps “whities” paper are the first things that come to mind. But that better not ever happen because the designers make me look good!

What's your favorite font to journal with? Your favorite "funky" font?

I LOVE fonts! I am addicted to century gothic, and timeless. My favorite funky font is probably Trashed. My favorite hand writing font is Andrew script. And to make my page have a graphic feel I always turn to impact or steelfish.

Where does your inspiration come from?

I am inspired usually by a picture or words. I want the majority of my pages to tell a story; whether it is a big event or a moment. That can happen with a picture or journaling. If the picture tells the whole story I keep the words minimal. When I journal I design the page, make a box for the journaling, and then I make myself fit the words in that box. It is amazing how clear your thoughts become when you only let the most important words on the page.

How long have you been hanging out at the big o?

Officially since April of 2007. Wow, that’s a long time! It’s a good place to hang out!

Wonderful, wonderful choice - and I don't even need to go through Kim's gallery (well, except perhaps to oggle some more!) as I have quite a selection of her LOs in my favourites already, some of which have been there for years and are still utterly awesome.

Such a great member choice - can't wait to play.
