Last week I received some exciting news.  I was approached by LoveToKnow Scrapbooking Web site to do an article as a featured expert on what it’s like to be a design team member.  If you haven’t checked out this site, you need to see it.  They have articles, tutorials, freebies, examples, tips and techniques for every scrapper.  Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, paper or digital scrapper; they cover all aspects of scrapbooking and are a great resource to add to your scrapbooking arsenal.

I was extremely honored when asked to share my experience as a Design Team member for A Cherry On Top and to be included in a list of such talented and inspiring scrappers as Sandy Genovese, Becky Fleck, Ashley Calder, and Allyson Bright Meyer.  You can see the full article here.

Thank you LoveToKnow Scrapbooking for this amazing opportunity.

“Refresh your imagination” is Doodlebug’s motto, and with their newest products: Crushed Velvet cardstock, Sugar Coating cardstock, Crushed Velvet flock and Sugar Coating glitter, they make it easy to unleash your creativity and spark your imagination.  This week several members of the Creative Team from A Cherry on Top revealed projects using these new products from Doodlebug.  Below are my projects for this reveal.  I loved working with the glitter and flock products; they really added some dimension and pizzazz to my layouts.  Both my layouts featured some beautiful girls playing in water to cool down from the summer heat.  I thought the Sugar Coating cardstock added a nice touch and helped carry the water theme with the shimmer and sparkle.  You can see all the CT projects using the Doodlebug flock and sugar coating products in our reveal article here.  And if you’re looking for your own Doodlebug products, check out the store at A Cherry on Top; they have a huge selection of Doodlebug and they’re having a sale this week of 15% off Doodlebug’s Crushed Velvet products.
