April Guest Designer : Lexi Bridges

Lexi Bridges is our guest designer this month and we are so excited to have her with us! I got the chance to meet Lexi at CHA last year and she is one of the sweetest ladies out there. She has amazing style, too and is always up to something inspiring!

Here’s just a tiny peek at two of her amazing layout and card – you can check out the rest of her layouts in the Inspiration Gallery!

What are three products you can’t live without?   
It’s really hard for me to make a layout or card without my sewing machine. I haul it into crops. Yes, I’m THAT person. Most layouts have a few splotches of spray ink on them, and my vintage typewriter. I’m not a fan of my own handwriting, so I like to use it on journaling spots or whatever. Plus, it’s a cool aqua color so it makes typing that much more fun 🙂 

Where do you scrapbook?  

I scrap in the world’s messiest space. For real. I’m not saying it’s something I’m proud of–just a fact. In my head it’s lots of white, clean space, but in reality…not so much. I’m hoping in the near future I can change this.

What do you listen to/watch while scrapbooking? 
If I’m in the mood for music I normally let itunes dj decide, but lately I’ve turned on hulu to catch up on some shows. Most recently, I watched all the episodes of My So-Called Life. Remember that one? WHY did it last only one season! Inquiring minds want to know what happened to Jordan Catalano & Angela Chase.

Do you record every moment or just special ones? 

I record whatever moment I can get on paper 😉 I’m convinced I will never live long enough to scrap them all! Mostly I record random shots from the day or photos to go along with something my boys have said. Their quotes will a lot of times make for a fun layout. 

What is your favorite thing about scrapbooking? 

It’s a laid back hobby for me. No rules, at least not in my book. I don’t stress on being “caught up” or making a team or getting published. If those things happen, that’s just frosting. 

Alright, now it’s time to give away Lexi’s favorite Elle’s Studio items!
