Flatter-Day Saturday featuring Angie Blom!!

Hello there! Hope you are having a wonderful Saturday...
it's me Karen, and ...
I am THRILLED to be flattering our very own
Ippity Guest Designer...


I've so enjoyed learning more about our FABULOUS Angie...
and I know you will enjoy learning more about her too! So, here we go...

A little bit about AMAZING and SUPER CREATIVE Angie...

Hi My name is Angie Blom.. you might see me on SCS as angb. I am 46 and a stay at home mom, I love to do all crafty things with paper, paint, bobbles and bling. I love to cook, the more the merrier. I was born in Georgetown Guyana, but have lived in Toronto Canada for the past 40 years.. saying that out loud makes me feel old... I am one of 9 children.. the one that broke the pattern.. it was boy, girl ,boy ,girl and then I came and BAM girl and then continued to be boy, girl ,boy, girl.. funny.. must be the middle child thing. I have a very supportive and wonderful husband that I talk alot about.. he is my best friend and a great supporter of everything I do. He is also a big fan of Ippity/Unity as well. We just celebrated 23 years August 1st.. I am very lucky to have him beside me.. hand in hand discovering this life together. We are true soulmates.. love you babe. I also have 2 wonderful funny kids.. Alex 15 and a great help to me everyday and my baby.. Sydney 4.. she thinks she is 14 and somedays acts like it too. I am lucky to have these kids in my life.. they keep me young at heart.. and silly! At this time in my life I must say I am a happy person that just loves her life!!

Angie's BEAUTIFUL FAMILY that she truly adores...
(isn't this the most beautiful family?) :)

• How did you first get involved in stamping?

The first time I got involved with stamping was in May of 2009 when I joined Unity's KOM.. and have been addicted since.

• What is your stamping style?

I don't think I have a style.. I like to change it up all the time.. from clean to messy.. it just depends on my mood.

• Tell us about your creative process

*If it is a scrapbook page.. I first start with the photo's.. and match my papers with the colours.. I them pick out 2-3 stamps to use.. I love to think out of the box and use the stamps in different ways.. I love a clean style to do my layouts.. I want to see the images and try to blend them in to the paper colours to become part of the overall look.

*For Cards, I start be assembling my card design, papers, ink distressing and then the last thing I do is pick the stamp.. colour it in to match the papers and a sentiment.

• What is your favorite {ippity} stamp set and why?

I must say I love all the sets and still have not inked them all up.. but my favourite set to use is from the first release.. Life's Little Moments. I have used it alot on layouts, cards, and notebooks.. I just love the look of all the images.. no many colouring images it is more of a timeless set and will be used over and over again.

• How often do you stamp?

Everyday, It is like a part of my everyday life.. I just have to ink something up.

• How long does it take you to make a project you are happy with?

I am a pretty fast crafter.. so I would say less than 30 minutes.. I have dreams of what I want to do so it comes fast for me.

• What does your craft room look like? {messy, clean, etc.}

It is clean.. I can't work in a messy room.. so every day I clean it up.

• What is your biggest paper crafting challenge?

That would have to be altering.. I am just not that good at it.. but I will try.

Angie answers some "Just for Fun" questions...

• What song best describes you?

I love all sorts of music.. country, pop , soft rock.. so it is hard to just pick one.

• If you were stranded on a desert island what are the three things you would bring?

Well those three things live with me.. but if is was not to include family.. it would be a journal, pencil and my camera..with a ton of sd cards.

• What is your favorite quote?

Capture the Moments that take your Breath Away.. (I guess that is why you will never see me without my camera.. I am always capturing something with it.)

• What would I find in your refrigerator right now?

Tons of food, salad, breaded chicken, steak.. pototo salad, it goes on and on.. if you come over there is always something to make in a hurry. My hubby and son like to have easy meals to grab and warm up.. so I make sure it is ready for them.

• If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be?

WonderWomAn.. I think she could do pretty much anything.. and I love her costumes.!! Ah the early 80's..hehe

What .. you will find anyone that knows me that it what I love to do.

• What would your dream vacation be?

Give me a beach, the house in the movie Something's Gotta GIve.. and I would be happy.. it can be anywhere.. as long as I can stay forever.
