Guest Designer: Lisa Falduto (with giveaway too)

We are so excited to introduce you to another talented designer that loves to use Imaginisce products, Lisa Falduto. Read through the post and find out how you can win our giveaway today!

Paper has always fascinated me! As I child I shredded paper to make wonderful culinary dishes with my toy cookware. As a student in school I used paper to create many projects for homework assignments. As an adult I've used paper to create bulletin boards, games, puzzles, displays, and so many other things in my preschool classroom. 
About 15 years ago I discovered rubber stamping and began creating cards. But this time it was different, I was obsessed! I made a natural progression into scrapbooking and then to altered items, all now a daily part of my life. There is nothing I enjoy more than sitting down with a pile of paper, embellishments, stamps, and tools to create something memorable. Paper crafting is my passion!
Since I have been involved in the paper crafting industry for so long I've had many opportunities to design for manufacturers and travel the country to teach.  I am always thrilled to teach and meet fellow paper crafters at events!  I learn so much from the participants in my classes and get so inspired!

I live in Wisconsin with my husband and I have two beautiful daughters.  I also enjoy bargain shopping and gardening.

We asked Lisa some questions so we could get to know her better: 


Diet or Regular?
Neither.  I rarely drink soda, but if I do I tend to choose diet.


When and where do they scrap/craft?
I am a closet crafter and primarily work in my home studio.  I craft at all different times day and night.  I mostly craft when I am feeling inspired.


What is your favorite Imaginisce tool or product? 
I am in love with the i-rock!  So easy to use, no cord getting in the way, and the glam rocks and gems are to die for cute!  I use it all the time on my work!
How do you kick off your creative process?
I grab the supplies I want to use and start picturing how I might lay them out.  I always start with paper and end with embellishments.  Sometimes when I get stuck I flip through some idea books or magazine.  If I am really stuck then I head to the grocery store and start looking at packaging to get inspired!

What did you want to be when you grew up?
I always wanted to be a teacher and I did become a teacher!  Now I have taken that passion and turned it into teaching paper crafting classes as well.  I love teaching!


If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
If I could live anywhere I would like to live in Florida, right next to Disney World.  I love it there, such a happy place!


Giveaway: Since Lisa's favorite tool is the i-rock, then our giveaway should be an i-rock and NEW accessories (not available in stores yet). To be entered to win just take a minute and go follow Lisa's Blog and come back and leave some comment love. We'll post the winner this Friday on our blog!
