What Jennifer Lawrence has in common with our October Guest Designer


We are thrilled to have Lina Monaco as our Guest Designer this month. She was a requested guest designer by one of our members, and I’m so glad they sent me a note with her contact information. I love her style and she’s been wonderful to work with this month! Please check out her gallery and personal links to be inspired over and over again. We’ll be adding one more layout mid month so you can get a jolt of inspiration right about the time you’re getting your scrapbooking kit in the mail! Be sure to check back.


My name is Lina and I am a craft-a-holic…LOL! I am simply an every and anything craft lover. I have been crafting since I was a child and scrapbooking for about 13 or 14 years now. Needless to say, I am addicted!

I am blessed to have 2 young daughters and a loving husband who put up with my scrappy (and sometimes silly) antics. I am a happy, open faced sandwich loving, kid at heart gal from Toronto. Let’s be friends on social media 🙂

We asked Lina to answer ten questions, I hope you enjoy getting to know her better as you read through her answers.

1. When is your most creative time?
I find that I work best in the early mornings when my girls are sleeping in la la land.
2. How do you unwind?
I love getting in the truck, a trenta Cool Lime Refresher in my cup holder and driving with hubby and my girls, discovering new sights this world of ours has to offer. It’s also when I feel recharged and motivated to tackle new projects.
3. If you were in a Rock N’ Roll band, what would your job be?
Lead singer for sure! I’ve been known to just belt out singing from time to time.
4. What is your guilty pleasure?
FOOD! Lol! I’m a foodie at heart and love cooking anything from southern BBQ to grilled veg. Also, I may have a thing for sandwiches, open face 😛
5. If your life was a movie, what actress would play you?
Hmmm…. I’d say Jennifer Lawrence. She’s quirky and you never know what’ll come out of her mouth 🙂
6. What’s your favorite accessory?
I love bracelets.
7. If your life were a novel, what would the title be?
Caffeine….. Please!
8. What was your first job and how did you get it?
My first job was working on an assembly line assembling lighting fixtures. Glamorous, I know! I was 15 and my dad got me the job since he worked in another department for the same company.
9. Share three of your bucket list items with us.
I’d love to travel to Greece and Morocco.
I’d also love visit the therapeutic and natural spas in Iceland.
To visit California and see Disney with my girls
10. What is “dressed up” for you?
Dressed up to me is formal. No jeans or casual shoes.Heels, make-up and a fancy, shmancy top or blouse. Although, I’d rather be in runners 😛
