We’re happy to once again be spotlighting another design team member and their talent in an effort for you to get to know them a bit better. BasicGrey fans, let me introduce you to digital design team member Jessy Christopher.
“Hello! My name is Jessy Christopher. I am a preschool teacher & an avid scrapbooker in Malaysia. Married to my very supportive sweetheart, Eric for 7 years now & we have 2 beautiful feline fur-babies. I started off with digital & hybrid scrapbooking late 2007 and finally ventured into paper scrapbooking in the early of 2008. What I love the most about scrapbooking is the freedom to express myself. I am a BIG fan of patterned paper : love fussy cutting. I am versatile in my creations. In my layout, you’ll mostly see balance, 3D, clustering, fussy cutting, & colorful choices. I am truly honored to be a part of Basic Grey’s team and look forward to challenging myself as well as inspiring you. My creations have been featured in various manufacturers’ websites, e-magazines, e-book & also scrapbook magazines ie; Creating Keepsakes, Paper Crafts, Cards & Scrapbook Trends.”
Now on to a little Q&A :
How do you typically start a new project?
Whenever I am ready to start a new project, firstly I will have to clear my messy table from the previous project. Then I will pick photo(s), choose the papers + embellishments and begin to put them together. Photos play huge role in my projects. I get inspired with the theme, mood & colors that are in the photos.
What do you listen to/watch while scrapbooking?
When I scrapbook, I love listening to K-Love station. It’s a Christian radio station that is based in the USA.
Where do you scrapbook?
I am fortunate to have a scrapbook room a.k.a my creative lab. This is where I spend most of my time whenever I just want to be creative & arty.
What is your favorite theme to scrapbook?
I love to scrap about everyday theme, about my family and friends that are important to us.
What other hobbies do you have besides scrapbooking?
Besides scrapbooking, I really enjoy singing and taking photographs. I am pretty addicted to Instagram.
What are your three favorite BasicGrey products?
And for a bit more inspiration, here’s a new layout from Jessy :
Be Happy | Jessy Christopher
You’re My Cup of Tea | Jessy Christopher
Jessy says, “When I received Paper Cottage, I couldn’t stop staring at it. The colors in this collection are just so yummy, as if you are in the candy store. The embellishments are just so perfect for any theme. With such cheery colors, I created a layout to remind myself to be always kind and happy. The card was purely fussy cutting. I had so much fun combining all the elements together & it took me a short time to complete both projects with such beautiful collection!”
