My Top Ten
2014 was such a fun year for me in the Scrapbooking world.  Designing for companies that I love has afforded me some great opportunities and I am truly thankful for that.  Narrowing my projects down to the Top Ten was tough - I won't tell you how many I started with.  In the end I got 11 and decided I'd stick with that.  I don't usually break the rules but I think you'll agree that this time, it was a good idea :)  So without further adieu, here's my favorite projects from 2014.


I think this canvas is the perfect place to start! I made this as part of my application for the Core'dinations Design Team.





As a mom to three little boys we have a lot of "brotherly love" going.  I love to use words on my layout and I love to think outside of the box with paper.  This project which I created for The Scrapbooking Studio definitely demonstrates both of those loves.



I got to guest design for 17turtles in November and had such fun playing with the cut files.  This paper pieced heart swirl really showcases my love of bright colors and whimsical elements.



I love my cut files and designing for Samantha Walker this past year was a blast because I got to play with a lot of fun ones.  I used her files to create a shaker box style card using gold and silver.



I love my Paper House Productions products, the combination of themed items with current trends in design is what they are best at and I always have fun playing with their stuff.  This layout was created for them to use in Joann Stores as endcap project sheets for their Halloween stickers.

 
As you've already seen, I love silver and gold!  I can't get enough of the metallic trend.  For this card I combined SRM Stickers with SRM Silver Doilies.  Simple and sophisticated - the name of the game with SRM Stickers :)


I got to play with a lot of Simple Stories this year and haven't found a line yet that I don't love..  Their summer line was perfect for pulling together a whole bunch of photos that were getting lost in the piles and create a summer memory layout.

Core-May-Arts-Layout-2
I love to play with techniques and this layout shows that - I did embossing, tearing, and die cutting.  I love it when techniques can make a layout and you don't have to add tons of product.  I created this one for Core'dinations as part of their design team.


You've seen the names SRM Stickers, Paper House Productions, and Core'dinations several times already - this layout combines all three.  Creating older boy layouts is a challenge - but I think I hit this one out of the park ;)

This layout was created purely for enjoyment and was based on a sketch that I created.  It uses Pebbles spring line from last spring.


Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine has closed it's doors and I am so sad about that.  Last spring they issued a challenge to use 5 or less products on a layout for an upcoming issue.  I submitted this layout using three products (stickers, patterned paper, and wood) and they picked it up!  It was in their last print issue which is still available on newsstands (called Pocket Scrapbooking).

My Individual Prize
For my individual prize I am giving away at $25 gift certificate to SRM Stickers Store!
They have a wide variety of fun products from stickers to vinyl to doilies and more!  To enter both contests all you have to do is leave me a comment and tell me which of these projects was your favorite.  I also give you a bonus entry for "liking" my Facebook page that you can find here.

Thanks so much for visiting and have fun checking out the rest of these talented ladies - your next stop is Mendi!
