Our Friday Friend Carolina

Happy Cupcake Friday! Please help us welcome this week's Our Friday Friend - Carolina Buchting (craftycaro on SCS). You'll want to hop over to her blog Carolina's Creative Pad (as soon as we saw her byline *fueled by coffee & cupcakes* we knew she was a girl after our own hearts!) and her SCS gallery for some sweet eye candy! But before you do, let's get to know Carolina a little better....

Where do you live?
I live in San Jose, California

How did you become addicted to papercrafts?
At a very young age...huge influence where my grandmothers who encouraged my love for crafting.

How long have you been stamping?
I would say that for the last five years I try to stamp on a daily basis; but I had my first collection of stamps at the age of 8 and used to, actually still do, make cards and paper treats for friends and family.

How would you describe your style?
I think it depends on my mood and the set I'm using. Ribbon is for sure a must embellishment for me so you'll pretty much always see that on my cards and projects.

What are you favorite projects to create?
Altered items. I love to turn ordinary things into something completely's like that old saying, "One person's trash is someone else's treasure!"

Do you have a favorite SASI image?
Ohhh, hard used to be the little witch from the Trick or Sweet set but since my creative energy is geared towards Christmas right now I would have to say the snowman cupcake from the Home Sweet Home set.

What is your favorite sweet treat?
Oh but a cupcake of course and a little java to go with it is just the perfect treat!

Thank you Carolina for being Our Friday Friend!!!

And how about you - would you like to be Our Friday Friend?

Each week Taylor will scour the Taylored Expressions Company Gallery at SCS for recent uploads (within the past 10 days) in search of a SASI Stamper to be featured on this blog. To be considered all you have to do is:

**Create something (card, 3D item, scrapbook page, anything) using one or more images from any SASI stamp set. Your creation should showcase SASI, but does not have to be exclusive to SASI.

**Upload your creation to SCS being sure to use the keyword SASI so it will appear in the Taylored Expressions Company Gallery (which is driven by a keyword search) and complete the recipe section of the upload.

**In the description field of your upload please mention Stamp a Sweet Impression stamps are from

Super simple - pretty much just have fun stamping and upload what you make so we can see it! If you are chosen, Taylor will send you an e-mail or PM asking if you'd like to be featured and requesting permission to post one or more of your creations here as Our Friday Friend. You will have the choice of creating something new or just allowing us to post a pic already in your gallery. We will include a link to your SCS Member Gallery and to your blog if you have one (note: a blog is not required to qualify for this feature.)

Have a sweet weekend!
