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.

A few TOOTS to share

It’s been a great couple of weeks for me with my scrapbooking.  I’ve had two items picked up for publication.  The first is my “I Love You” card using the Antique Cream Narratives collection by Creative Imaginations.  This was one of my favorite cards, with its elegant and classy look.  I’m so excited to have this card chosen for Card Creations 6, the next special issue of Paper Crafts magazine!!  I love these special Card Creations issues with all their inspiration.  The second item is a baseball layout, called “Swing.”  I made this layout for our CT reveal at A Cherry On Top showcasing the baseball collection by Flair Designs.  Debby, a fellow board member from A Cherry On Top shared an awesome photo of her son, Will, up at bat.  This layout will be featured in the Hobby Lobby magazine, Stamping, Stationery & Scrapbooking 3rd Quarter 2008.

Next, I received several notifications of winning some scrapbook contests.  The most exciting was being named Trendsetter of the Month at Scrapsupply.  There are always so many outstanding layouts showcased here; the competition’s steep so it’s quite an achievement to be recognized.  I also won the chipboard challenge at Scrapbooks etc.  This was a Designer Challenge issued by Erin Clarkson, who is a contributing editor for Scrapbooks etc and designer for Making Memories.  Erin has been my scrapbooking idol and inspiration for years; I’ve always loved her work.  To be chosen the winner of her chipboard challenge was a great honor for me.

My final and biggest TOOT, is being chosen as a Guest Artist for Bisous.  If you’ve been following my blog you’ve seen some of my work using this amazing product.  Since discovering Bisous at Winter CHA, I’ve been hooked.  I just can’t get enough of their product.  Suzanne Carillo, the designer and owner of Bisous is simply wonderful and I’m extremely honored to be her guest artist for July/August.  She has sent me some amazing product to work with; I can’t wait to begin creating.  Keep an eye out here as I post some of my creations and look for others to appear in the Bisous newsletter.  One item to note are the new PDQ Journal Pads.  Look at these cool, hip designs!
