STUDIO SPOTLIGHT ON LISA JANAWAY
Lisa has been a part of my Design Team since 2017. She has been an integral part of my team almost from the moment she joined on.
Aside from being one of my DT Creatives, Lisa is also my DT Coordinator, Sponsor Coordinator and basically...my right arm! She is Fabulous!
I thought it would be fun to interview Lisa and give you a chance to learn more about her.

DDS: How would you describe your paper crafting style?
Lisa: I don't think I have one although at the moment I am all about the colouring of the image and the image taking the stage so I guess I am in CAS Style mode!

Lisa: Starts with sorting kids for school, cleaning the house, Picking up kids and taking to after school activities then crafting once they are settled or a book and glass of wine!
DDS: When do you feel the most creative?
Lisa: After a good nights sleep.
DDS: How do you get in the “Zone” while working on your projects?
Lisa: I shut myself in the room with my craft stuff in deadly silence. I am not one of these people that work with music or noise.
DDS: Do you have a dedicated work space...if so, what is your favorite part about it? If not ...what would your dream space look like?
Lisa: I would love a whole craft room with cupboards that everything tidies away in and work surfaces for my machines and trimmer. I would love not to have to pack everything away everytime I get it out!
DDS: How do you organize your craft stash?
Lisa: In plastic drawer units (which are overflowing)
DDS: How do you...or do you...organize and plan your projects?

DDS: If you couldn't paper craft, what would you be doing?
DDS: Do you have funny paper crafting story you would like to share?
Lisa: Not really I continuously forget to check that my card blank is up the right way and have to take everything off to turn it round!
DDS: What advice would you give someone just getting started in paper crafting?
Lisa: You can create with the minimum of materials so don't let cost put you off. You need a digi and a card blank and something to colour it with and you are off! Most if all it needs to be fun!
I created a Digi Doodle inspired by Lisa's personality! Her name is "Lisa J at Play" and you can find her in the Studio!
Lisa has created this lovely card using this image for the purpose of her Spotlight Interview.
