How did you get started scrapbooking: I started out cardmaking with my mom in high school, then created my first album, a 'Senior Year' scrapbook, and I was addicted! My scrapbooking has gone through so many periods of my life, from being single, married, moving to a different country, and now, a baby on the way!

What is your favorite American Crafts product?: It's amazing how many American Crafts products I own, but if I had to choose, I'd say that it would be a toss-up between Thickers (you can never have enough!) or patterned paper. I always love seeing the new designs around CHA time!

Family Tray_MAndrew
FAMILY TRAY by Meghann Andrew

Tip: Decorating a printer's tray is a great way to get rid of leftover paper scraps and embellishments. I treat the overall design in the same way that I would a scrapbook layout, with clusters of embellishments, and by making visual triangles.

A DAY IN REGENT'S PARK by Meghann Andrew

Tip: Printing photos at different sizes gives your layout a 'collage' feel and using a dark mat on top of a busy paper helps to ground the photos and embellishments.

Fairy Princess_MAndrew
FAIRY PRINCESS by Meghann Andrew

Tip: I often cut busy, large patterns from designs in patterned papers to use as embellishments as I find an entire sheet a bit overwhelming!
