All month long, we've had some great inspiration from guest designer, Renee... but this one is a favorite for sure. This menu board is so clever, we can't even stand it. And the colors of The Thrift Shop collection are just so fab for it. What do you think? Thanks Renee for a great month!
School is out, the weather is warm... now is the time to grab your camera and head outdoors. That's just what guest designer Renee did... Isn't this a great layout of her kids? We love the bright colors and how she mixed Fly a Kite with bits of The Thrift Shop! Perfect!
It's a new month and you all know what that means! We get to introduce you to our guest designer for June!! Lets give a warm welcome to the talented Renee Morris-Dezember!
Guest Designer Q&A
Where do you live? I live in Eastern Washington State...the side that's a desert!
Kids? I have 3 kiddos: Ben who is 10, Camryn is 7 and Mason will be 6 soon.
How would you describe your style? I have never been able to put a label on my scrapbooking. I think that I have a pretty clean style using my photos to tell our family stories. I love the use of pattern paper and adding just a few embellishments that enhance my layouts.
How long have you been scrapping? I have been scrapping over 10 years.
What's your favorite OA paper line? Its so hard to just pick one...I LOVE them all.
What size do you scrapbook? typically I scrap 12x12 but I have been known to through in other sizes as well.
1 page or 2? Mostly 1 page layouts
Do you make cards? Yep...and I LOVE that almost as much as making layouts.
Is your scrap area messy or neat? ...well it usually starts out neat but by the time I am done working its pretty messy.
What camera do you use? I have a Cannon Rebel XTi and I mostly use my 28-135mm lens.
Your favorite ink? I mainly use only Staz-On Jet Black ink.
Where do you find your inspiration? Inspiration can be taken from almost anything...magazines and they don't necessarily have to be scrapping related, blogs...mainly when I am in the car I will just have an idea pop into my head and as long as I'm not driving I start sketching and documenting these ideas.
Hand journaling or computer? Using all of it is done on the computer.
What's your favorite scrapbooking color? I love LOTS of color but lately I seem to be using alot of yellow...such a happy color!
What's your most-used scrapbook tool (aside from your trimmer)? lol you knew I'd say trimmer...besides that I end to always reach for my pop dots!
Are you a slow scrapper or a quick scrapper? I think I am pretty quick.
What's your favorite quote? What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Give us your favorite tip ...always carry a notebook with you - just just never know when you will need to write down ideas for upcoming layouts!
Leave a comment saying Hello to Renee and we will draw one winner to get a great OA prize box. The winner will be announced on Friday! Good Luck!
