One of our design team members spotted this adorable project in Danni's gallery over at Two Peas in a Bucket. As soon as we saw it, we just knew it had to be showcased on our blog!! Isn't it just the most adorable set ever? We sure think so!! Look at all those fun details! Thanks Danni, for letting us spotlight your fantastic gift set!
July guest designer Heidi Sonboul has more to share with you guys! She created this adorable (and oh-so-clever!) baby layout using a mix of some older collections with the new wild cards!. Isn't it sweet? Love the way she used those wild cards and journaing spots!
Nearly everyone has an abundance of Disney photos, right? Since design team member Angie Hagist lives in Florida, she has tons! She thinks it is a great idea to do a special vacation album just for your Disney vacation (or any vacation for that matter!) Here is her title page for the start of her family's album...very cute, don't you think? We love the mix of papers, die cuts, and stickers she used!
How cute is this layout by design team member Tara Pollard Pakosta!? She used a mix of the Ducks in a Row stickers, die cuts, and papers to create a layout about her daughter's love of stuffed animals (especially this stuffed duck.) Take a look...
Well, we told you we were looking for guest designers! And, today you'll meet Heidi Sonboul, October Afternoon's first guest designer! We also came up with a new (expanded) Q&A especially for our guest designers - hope you enjoy getting to know Heidi! Say Hello!

ORANGE! I love orange!!!
What's your most-used scrapbook tool (aside from your trimmer)?
My craft knife and scissors. I love doing a lot of paper piecing.
Are you a slow scrapper or a quick scrapper?
I'm a very Quick scrapper. I try to never over think things and the helps me go fast. I also never use sketches and try to make every layout different!
What's your favorite quote?
I love you from the bottom of my butt, because it's bigger then my heart! lol
Give us your favorite tip...
When scrapbooking ...clear your mind. Put on some music and let it flow. Remember to not over power your photos and keep the color combos clean and happy. Also remember... Journaling is so important!!! I can't tell you how many photos I found from my Grandmother (with other people in them) and no names on the back. If she just put a name on the back... we'd know who the people were.
Take a look at these fun layouts Heidi created using October Afternoon's Road Map and Cherry Hill collections...
