Spotlights on Mahlin and Maggie

Mahlin says, "This layout is about my son when he got a garland of flowers from his grandma to wear in the park on midsummer. This photo and theme works perfect with the City Park papers. I have a huge crush on frames and labels and I love adding them to my designs. For this layout I cut out some frames with my exacto knife and adhered them on some gorgeous City Park papers. I also like working with layers as you might see. It´s such an easy way to get that extra dimension on your page. The City Park collection is filled with cute patterns, perfect for cutting out and using as embellishments, like the glitter hot air balloons or embossed ducks."

And here are some fun things to get to know Mahlin a bit better:

Hometown: Åby, Sweden
Occupation: Special Ed´s teacher (Aspergers syndrome and autism)
The best thing about my job is...seeing the kids using the things we teach them. It´s such a reward being able to help them.
My favorite song is...Any song by the Swedish singer/songwriter Lars Winnerbäck
I always...need some glitter, in my life and when scrapbooking.
At the end of the day...I need to create, every day.
What I love most about American Crafts is...the amazing colors and huge variety of products.


Maggie shares this great card to go along with her spotlight:

Maggie shares, "I made this quick card to send to a friend and love the bright colors and mix
of textures. The Remarks stickers are perfect for these cards and all of the coordinating products made it come together so easily! I love it almost too much to send it off! The bright colors make me happy!!"

Some fun facts about Maggie to get to know her better:

Hometown: Gilbert, AZ
Occupation: Photographer, Scrapbooker, Workshop Leader and Mom
Three things I love...snuggling with my kiddos on the couch, sleeping in (even though I never get to!) and color.
If I could do anything for a day, I would...spend a day away with my hubby relaxing and eating and shopping.
My favorite article of clothing I own cardigans! I am a cardigan junkie! I have every color and style!
To me, a creative outlet and a way to preserve all of our memories! I am so grateful for this hobby in so many ways!
What I love most about American Crafts fun and colorful the products are and I also love how easily they mix and match with other products and other manufacturers.

It was fun learning more about you Mahlin and Maggie! Love your projects!
