Leah says about her project, "Recently, my husband’s brother got engaged to a really great
girl – I’m looking forward to having her as a sister-in-law! After
they got engaged, one of the first things they did was come to me to help them
start out with the planning. I found that she was already really well prepared,
so I pretty much have just been consulting with her regularly to help out. One of the things we are working on together
is their invitations. Of course the first step along the way these days is a 'save
the date' – and while this isn’t the design that they’ll be going with (they
decided on a great photo postcard option), this was inspired by several things
I found in my searching for ideas!"
Here are some things I bet you didn't known about Leah:
Hometown: Lauderhill, FL
Occupation: wife/mommy/general "Martha" of our home. On any given day you'll find me with a hammer, a spatula, or needle and thread in my hands.
I love my family because...they keep me grounded.
My dream job would be...designing/crafting/writing for a living.
The best thing about where I live is...the beach and the cultural diversity.
When I was little...I loved being outdoors, making mudpies, and riding my dirt bike.
Next year...I'll have my own craftsy business!
What I love most about American Crafts is...the bright colors, variety of textures, and modern patterns.
We'd also like to spotlight Céline Navarro and she made this beautiful layout about four girls in London to accompany her spotlight:
Supplies: Dahlias Paper (35044) - I Do; Firefly Festival Paper (35085) - Dear Lizzy; Golden Gleam Paper (35090)
- Dear Lizzy; Butter Rose (58180) - Ribbon; Delight Blue
(53072) - Thickers; Beauty (70035) - Flair; Veggies (42546) - Remarks
Céline shares, "I just got back from London a couple of weeks ago and I just loved the time I got to spend with my three girlfriends :) I wanted to celebrate
our friendship and our fabulous time together. When I pick a photo I
want to use on a layout, I try to look at the colors in order to see
what kind of papers I'm going to use. This time, I couldn't ignore
this beautiful photo taken in Notting Hill, where you can see cute pink,
blue, yellow houses, and I then picked the right papers to go along
with the colors. Try to pick a darker paper for the background, in order to make the colors pop."
Here are some fun facts about Céline:Hometown: Montpellier, France
Occupation: Full time scrapbook teacher
If I could live anywhere...I'd live in South America or Asia, between Singapore and Bali :)
My favorite thing to do on the weekend...go to the beach or read on my sofa.
I find inspiration from...music, esp. the Arctic Monkeys.
My favorite kind of music...See above!
What I love most about American Crafts is...the quality of their products, their diversity, and that they have LOOOOTS of cool products to work with!
Thanks for letting us get to know you a bit better Leah and Céline!
