To get your creative juices flowing,
here are some fabulous projects
from our Guest Designers:
Leslie from Love to Scrap!

My name is Leslie, I'm married with two grown children and one granddaughter, and I live in north Florida. I began scrapbooking about 40 years ago, way back when scrapbooks were really bland - before all the fun papers and embellishments came about. For the last 20 years or so, my paper passion has been card making. I started out making computer-generated cards, graduated to card kits, then quickly realized that having my own stash of stuff was the way to go! The rest is history, as they say! I'm addicted to rubber stamping and also enjoy making 3-D paper projects, especially paper shoes and mini albums, and have been known to alter a few tins and boxes. I also started beading and making jewelry about a year or so ago. A huge thanks to Doris and the Crafting by Designs crew for having me on board for the August challenge! ;)
And here is a link to my blog: Love To Scrap!
Beatriz from beascrapbooking
Hi, my name is Beatriz Blázquez. I live in Spain.
I'm lucky to have a job that I love, because I love kids and I'm pediatrician in a hospital next to my home. I have always loved hand crafts and since being a kid one of my main hobbies was colouring, I used to ask the Three Kings to bring me those huge boxes with lots of crayons.  I discovered scrapbooking 3 years ago and I'm totally hooked. Looking at videos on-line I discovered Copic markers and stamps for colouring and since then my two main hobbies go together: scrapbooking and colouring. I'm not sure if I have a fixed style, but I love soft colours, sweet images, vintage and romantic projects, and normally my makes do not have to little embellishments, haha.  I'm very happy and eager to share my projects with you. See you around!!!


Katie from arteKatie
