Wow, Tuesday already? We hope you took the time to remember and thank all of our service men and women that have sacrificed so much for us to have our freedom. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
We are back up and finishing off our last week (week three) of our Design Team Introductions!  If you have been following us  make sure you check our WINNER page HERE to see if you won!
Today we are saying hello too…..Kate Nolan-Denham!
Here is a little bit about Kate:

Hello! My name is Kate Nolan-Denham, but I answer to Katie, Mom, and Mimi, too. I live in Maine with my dear hubby (Scott), our youngest daughter(Lily) and two dogs(Lexi & Ryder). Our oldest daughter(Kass) lives nearby with our two grandsons(Chase & Seth). We are so lucky to live in a small community that is situated only 45 minutes from the ocean and the mountains. By day, I am an Office Manager for a Speech-Language Pathology Center. I love my day job because the women I work with do great work and have huge hearts! I was encouraged to start scrapbooking by a dear friend who insisted that scrapbooking was “so me.” She was right! Twelve years later my love of paper crafting has evolved to include scrapbooking, card making, stamping, altered art, and a dabbling of mixed-media. My style is clean and colorful (most of the time). I have had the honor of being on several design teams during the last few years, but I am especially excited about joining the Core’dinations team. Now I can check it off my bucket list!

Check out more awesome projects on Kate’s blog HERE!

So who is ready for a layout all about Kate?????
If you were taking a sneak into my Instragram account, you would see these pictures.  Amazing how a phone can caputre those moments that define you!
I wanted my layout to be a reflection of me, not only with photos, but also in style.  The clean, colorful design of my layout is what I consider my papercrafting style.

I scored my background Core’dinations Cardstock at the 1″ vertical mark and then every 2.4″ horizontally. This created a grid in which I sanded to give a little pop.  Each of the arrows is die cut out of differerent colored Core’dinations Cardstock. I used my Cricut to cut the titlework out of Core’dinations Cardstock, too.

Core’dinations Supplies:
Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress Collection 12″x12″ and Cut & Emboss
Jillian Dot Spotted 6″x6″
Other Supplies:
Fabscraps Pearls
Pebbles Patterned Paper
American Crafts Jute
Helmar Glues
And……………….we need a winner of our Vintage Cardstock, right??????
