So curious to see who is our winner from yesterday??????????
Omgosh! That is the most amazing layout!!! I just love the colors and all of that texture!
Today we have new Design Team Member…… Suzanna Lee!
Check out more about Suzanna and her projects on her blog HERE. Here is a little bit about her:
What can I say? I’m just a woman who is obsessed with her husband, her 2 kids, her camera (a Nikon!), living life to the fullest and preserving our memories as we go! Michael and I have been happily married for 14 years. Together we are raising two amazing children—Nikolas, 10, and Mia,almost 7.
I am very diverse when it comes to styles and techniques. I can’t claim any one as a main stay in my projects. I range from clean and simple to layered and packed with little details. The paper and photographs speak to me and I do what feels right. New styles, techniques, products, etc. are some of the major things that offer me inspiration. I am always excited to try new things and new opportunities, in life and with paper crafting.
When I’m not hiding behind my camera or cutting and creating both mess and beauty, I’m a physical therapist. I love what I do and love that it helps fund my hobby and collection! Who needs purses and shoes when you can have paper and embellishments?!
And how much do you loooooove the color combo of this layout??? I just love learning all these random bits about Suzanna.
And some close ups:
Ohhhhhh…embossing! Our 6×6 pads are a great way to add small deatils to layouts….they aren’t just for cards!
Now a little bit about Suzanna’s layout:
Every now and again, I try to do a page about myself. My kids love pouring through the albums and love seeing themselves but I know there will come a time when they will wish there was more of Mum and Dad. I know I love learning the little details of my parents’ lives. This layout served that purpose as well as sharing a little bit about myself with you. Random bits about Suzanna Lee. I literally wrote the first 5 thoughts that came to mind. I did say random! I also wanted to showcase how amazing core is! There is one piece of patterned paper on this page, the majority of the paper is Core of one type or another. All those different lines come together as a cohesive whole! Amazing!
Love May Arts Ribbon?
Love Whitewash Cardstock?
Love all things Core especially cute little door hangers?
EEEK! I love the little touch of burlap on this, too!
Designer Andrea Amu created this layout for us today featuring all these goodies and more! ENJOY!
Want to see how Design Team Member Char Dobson created all these fun party decorations?! Seriously, Pink Owls, party favors, banners…what could be better?!?!?!?!!?
Check out a close up of this cutie!
And some treat bags!
Preferred partners: Queen&Co. Rhinestones, Spellbinders Labels One and Circle dies, Helmar 3D Zapdots, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Power Tape
Other supplies: Cricut Hoot & Holler cartridge, Tonic heart punch
Each of our designers have a really unique style. People always ask what companies are looking for when it comes to teams and I think one of them is diversity.
Speaking of teams………..we are going to be announcing the names of our BRAND NEW Card Design Team any day now! Everyone has officially said, “yes” so we are ready to go. Exciting stuff!!!!
Design Team Member April Derrick not can not only work the Core but she has a unique style AND she always has the neatest titles on her projects. I don’t know about you but titles can be the hardest part of a layout. I recently scrapped some photos of our trip to New York City and all three layouts had the same title, “NYC”!
So today is all about words, ie, titles!
How fun is this title? Makes me smile because this is something we can all relate to for sure.
And take a look at the bottom blue strip…April embossed and layered some mists on it. Love that texture!
And next up …another fun from April. Check all the cool details…first up I notice the sanding of the Whitewash right away and then April does a lot of tone on tone in her layouts. Then to whave her title stand out, she outlines them with marker.
We hope that we inspired you to get creative with those layouts and titles!
