Glitter Silks…oh, how pretty! I would love to play with some that paper. Awesome LO!!


Today we have another returning Design Team Member…Shaunte Wadley!

I have had the pleasure of getting to know Shaunte over the past few years and she has an eye for design that always blows me away. She adds just the smallest details and I think, “Man! Why didn’t I think of that?!”   Here is a little bit about Shaunte:

I guess if I were to describe myself as a crafter- I would say I like little details- tags, tabs, pearls, tiny flowers, etc.  I also love to add texture and dimension to my projects. I love to sand, machine stich, die cut and I buy pop-dots in bulk.
I naturally gravitate towards happy colors, but I depend on my photos to determine my color palette.
My favorite Core products are Glittersilk and Vintage.
Vintage looks (and feels) to me like a good pair of comfortable broken-in jeans, which is what you will find me wearing almost daily. I like to embellish things with Glittersilk. Anything sparkly and glittery will always appeal to me!

Journaling reads:

40 hit me this year like a truckload of bricks. You tend to reflect on life at each decade- what worked, what didn’t. Here is what I know. Sure I have made mistakes, but I have also been pretty stinking lucky.

I married well. Sam and I still love each other- and humor has been the glue to hold this family together. We like to laugh a lot- at ourselves, at each other, and at life.

We have five great kids! They are hitting the teen years, and honestly? I really like these guys! Thanks to Sam’s job, we have had many adventures traveling together as a family. I turned my hobby into a job. Work from home in my pajamas? Yes, please.

Life is good. I am grateful.

Here is the detail of how Shaunte cut the title  with her Cameo. Cutting glitter cardstock, like our Glitter Silk, upside down and in reverse helps save your blade and make a nice, clean cut so your glitter won’t shed.

Supply List:

Tim Holtz Shattered Cardstock, Vintage Cardstock, Tim Holtz Kraft-Core, Glitter Silk (Shaute cut it on her Silhouette by putting the paper in upside down, and printing the title in reverse. ) Queen & Co. washi tape and bling.
