Another CT gig!

I'm feeling pretty lucky, because my two favorite designers have opted to allow me to create for them! :) I was a guest CT member for Amy Sumrall last month and she is letting me stay on! When I say these are two of my favorites, I'm not exaggerating at all.

I've loved Michelle Underwood since I started scrapping. The first two kits I purchased were by her, and still two that I adore! :) She has an easy grungy feel to her work and it fits with my scrapping style very well. Her kits are incredibly versatile and the colors she choses are fantastic.

I discovered Amy Sumrall when she participated in DigiScrap Addicts' "So You Think You Can Design" competition this past summer. (By the way, GREAT place to hang out!) I developed a quick obsession for her doodley bright fun kits. I began collecting every kit I could get my hands on!

So the point of the story is that I'm really excited and feeling quite privileged to be on two CTs that I am so proud to be a part of! It will challenge me to keep scrapping my photos! I love that.

In other news, the new November BYOC (buy your own collab) at the-LilyPad was released today! Here is Amy Sumrall's contribution (images are clickable):

Here's a layout I created. Perhaps the use of the Halloween clay baubles is a bit silly, but it works for me:

New CT gig!

I have been a fan of Michelle Underwood's designs since I first discovered the digi-scrap world a year and a half ago. Imagine my excitement when she had a CT call. :) I applied and was lucky enough to get accepted!!!

Michelle's new kit Vintage Holiday Memories came out yesterday and it is quite honestly one of my favorites. That is saying a lot considering I own over 30 of her other kits! Take a look and see for yourself:

The beauty of the kit is that it is incredibly versatile. It's not just a Christmas kit. It have colors that can be used for fall/Thanksgiving/Halloween layouts too. And I used it to scrap my boys!

I also used this kit on a special project that I did this week. The layout below was created both as a thank you and also to introduce our family to a man that we recently met who was a paramedic that saved my husband's life over 30 years ago. To see the amazing story, visit my family's blog at
