I have a friend who has been a role model for me in my crafting. Her name is Erin Basset. When I met her she was beginning to get her feet wet in the business. Nowadays she creates beautiful things. She scraps, sews, does mixed media, she teaches online and in stores, she designs for top manufacturers and her creativity is a-m-a-z-i-n-g. Do you have anyone that you admire and like to emulate?

I came across Nichol Magouirk's videos several years ago, and was just in awe. I admire her ability to use so many things on a layout, the creativity of putting it together, and just how perfect everything layers. I literally catch my jaw dropping every time I see a layout she's done. I know my own style has evolved since discovering her. I try to look at my layouts in the same way, and they just aren't as good. I love her tips and tricks, and LOVE putting them to use, learning so much!!

I love Gabriellep's style. I saw her work here a few years ago and was fascinated.

Not so much a "role model", but Ashli Oliver has a quirky, amazing style that I can't get enough of.

She definitely inspires/influences me.

I may be showing my age but so what! I have the biggest Respect and admire the crafting style of Carol Duvall. She used to have a TV crafting program for years, watched her with my Mom when I has in high school. She always did many crafts on her show scrapping, sewing, beading, painting, clay, soooo many different things and I LOVED that show but she has been out of the TV for a number of years now. I even got to meet her in Redmond, WA when she was doing a demo there. very Sweet lady with a mind full of recycling crafts and many others. I do have her recorded on VHS that I watch sometimes as I sew or scrap. I for sure consider her a role model as well as an extremely informative person on many craft subjects.

I wouldn't call her a role model but I love looking at Lisa Dickinson's work....she is very talented! Her blog is also great...she's a very good writer and sometimes makes me laugh out loud!

My first role model is my dear sweet mother. I was a sick child. She took amazing care of me. I had to spend the whole year when I was 3 in bed. She had me do everything crafty. She taught me how to make cards, she taught me how to do every craft, sewiing, art stuff. she taught me how to put stuff in the scrapbooks too. Every time I make stuff or do my pages, I always think of her. She would have loved the scrapbook stores.

I do have lots of fav artists here. They are ALL incredible. I get lots of inspiration from them.
I think the gallery here is stupendous.

Me, too!! I wish some channel would pick up her shows so I could watch them now!

My first role models were my mom and grandma. They could make ANYTHING out of nothing! One time I was spending the day with my grandma and she wanted to go to town, but the clothes I was wearing were dirty from playing outside, so I watched her take a piece of fabric, lay it on the floor and she took her scissors and started cutting, then took it to her machine and sewed a few seams and I had a brand new dress in less than 15 minutes! No pattern or pins involved, just fabric, scissor and a treadle sewing machine.

One year my mom and my grandma made the five of us (my sibs and I) all Halloween costumes out of paper feed sacks. I dont' remember what all the costumers were, but I know one was an owl and one was a sea monster from a cartoon. A couple of them won their classes' costume contest that was held at our school each year.

My mom loved any and all kinds of crafting. She would have dearly loved scrapbooking.

There are two on this site that I admire for their works: Pauline Van Den Bosch and Ingrid.

Both have an awesome style. Love their colours and techniques. Pauline has more of a Shabby Chiq and Ingrid has a mix of styles. Both keep amazing me. Something different every time. Ingrid tends to use store brand items that we can buy locally and Pauline uses a lot of items we normally would toss out.

On YouTube I came across a mixed media artist RachO113, She makes wonderful items. because of her, I am prepairing to make first steps into the mixed media art techniques. She makes wonderful Steampunk art pieces that I am totally diggin.

Heidi Swapp. I think she seems so down to earth and awesome. Seems like "she's the real deal".
