Getting to Know Allyson Bright

In Podcast, Scrapbooking by amykunkleLeave a Comment

Hello and happy new podcast day! :) On Tuesdays I release a new audio interview (aka podcast) for your listening pleasure. Today I’m chatting with Allyson Bright, a long-time scrapbooking teacher and the author. She’s written two Idiot’s Guide books, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Scrapbook Projects and The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Altered Art. She recently launched Determined to Shine, a site featuring online papercrafting classes focused on experiencing emotional healing and personal growth.

How I Met Allyson Bright:

I was introduced to Allyson from a previous podcast guest, Lain Ehmann. Click here to see that post and listen to the interview. I love how Allyson has used creativity and paper crafting to move through some difficult times in her life and propel herself into success and happiness. Though that may be a lofty aspiration, on the podcast, we had a great conversation about her life and how she’s done just that.


You can see photos of her craft room and learn more about her online classes HERE.
