A scrapper you should know!

Rachel Ricks

Rachel is definitely a scrapper you should know - she is kind, dependable and fun plus her work is amazing! You can see her two favorite layouts below but be sure to check out her blog to see more of her beautiful work! Read on to learn a little more about Rachel...

What is the most important aspect of scrapbooking to you?
Journaling. I haven't always felt this way, but a scrappin' buddy of mine is wonderful with her journaling and has helped me realize just how precious the aspect of journaling really is. (Thanks, Trudy!)

What are your favorite pages to work on?
The everyday moments that will mean so much when you look back. Like the saying goes, "Enjoy the little things in life...for one day you'll look back and realize they were the big things." I hope to record the little things.

What, if anything, do you find hard to scrap?
I could probably scrap just about anything, lol. Picking just the right papers is my scrapbooking nemesis. I'm so picky and indecisive. It really creates a love/hate thing with paper for me.

What kind of camera do you use? Do you love it or hate it?
My awesome husband just recently bought me my very first DSLR! I am now the proud owner of a Sony Alpha 350. I've only had it a little over a week but I'm head over heals!

What do you enjoy most about scrapbooking?
I love the creativity of it all. I've always been an artsy person so scrapbooking allows me to express my artistic abilities in a way that is meaningful to not only myself, but to my family.

Tell us a little about your family.
I'm wife to a wonderful man,John. He is my best friend and soul mate! We always have fun together. He is very patient with me and supports me in all I do. Even if it is spending too much time and money scrapbooking or any other hobby I'm pursuing at the moment. I'm the mother of four children and step mom to one pretty cool teenager. My life gets busy but, honestly, I wouldn't have it any other way.

Tell us about the things outside of scrapbooking that you enjoy.
My addiction to scrapbooking lead to my new found hobby of photography. I've always enjoyed taking pictures but over the last 6 months or so I've really started learning the in's and out's of it all and I'm loving every minute of it. I've even started a photography blog at Pics by Ricks to practice and share what I learn. I also enjoy pretty much any artsy-crafty thing you can think of.
Tell us something about yourself that your Feeling Scrappy friends do not know.
I'm a gamer girl. I enjoy online role playing games like World of Warcraft and I also play the roll-the-dice role playing games like Dungeons and Dragons. More times than not I play some sort of magic casting elf. It's actually really fun. My husband had no idea the monster he would create when he showed me Dark Ages of Camelot for the first time. I was hooked instantly.
