Hi, I’m Alissa Fast and I live in Ferndale, WA. We’re in the far NW corner of the state, right next to Canada. My family consists of me, my hubby, Steve, and our sweet little kitty, Stormy. An interesting fact about her is that she’s a Hurricane Katrina survivor from New Orleans. I’ve been scrapbooking as long as I can remember.
I have several of those old sticky photo albums full of photos, ephemera and lettering cut out of magazines. How thrilled do you think I was when I discovered an actual scrapbook store across the street from my workplace 15 years ago? I ended up working at that LSS for several years, until we closed in 2009, and met some of my best friends in the world while there.
My scrapbooking style is a hard one to define. I love using shipping tags, labels, lots of different alphabet stickers and love to layer up my embellishments. Creating mini books, and pocket pages, are my very favorite projects to create.
I love the little pages of a mini book. I find them so easy to create and the feel of a thick little book in my hands just makes my heart sing.
When I’m not scrapbooking, I love all things planner related. Yep. I’ve been sucked in. Anything with pretty paper that helps organize my life is A OK in my book.
I have a huge love of photography. I love taking photos of family, friends, my kitty, my travels and all my lovely vintage finds. I have a dream to one day have my own photography business and do what I love full time. I am excited to be a part of the Cocoa Daisy team and look forward to getting to know everyone and sharing this love of “paper and stickers” with all of you!
