July PPC Guest Designer, Betty!
My name is Betty Schaub and on the web I go by ZacksNana. I am 50+ y.o. card maker/crafter. I’ve been creating cards since my family purchased our first computer in 1985.
My style: hmmm, if I had to say I have one, I would think it’s sometimes over done and sometimes understated. I love all things tiny and shiny and bright. I love the color green – all shades, so you’ll see a lot of it in my designs.
I am currently on 2 other design teams; Jazzy’s Paper Designs and SoftPencil’s Digital Images Design team. I also play along on the 1st and the 3rd Tuesdays of each month in the Texas Tues-Step Texas themed challenges as one of Libby’s posse. I run my own card sketch group on Yahoo called CardSketchesByZacksNana. I also monitor and post Cuttlebug-ers Challenges at PaperCraftPlanet.
I enjoy working with both rubber/acrylic and digital. I think in some aspects I prefer the digis because I don’t have to find room to store them in my cramped little office/craft space and I can resize, add to, take away from however I need to make the card work. I love acrylics too though and I use them as often in my cards as I do digitals.
I married to the love of my life 33 years ago this coming December. We have 2 grown daughters; Holli & Jessi and one shining star of a grandson, Zackary, hence the ZacksNana moniker. I live in north central Texas where it is HOT, HOT, HOT!
We are sooo very excited to have Betty as our Guest Designer this month! Her love and passion for paper crafting is super catchy! Make sure you check out her blog, too! :)
