I know you know it's Tuesday. To me, that means it's time for another spotlight. This time, we're looking at one of Elise's creative team members, Amy. She's just a down-to-earth woman with a family, three jobs, and a clean look. To her layouts, I mean. I don't know what her desk looks like. Without further ado, I'd loooove to introduce you to Amy!
1. Can you tell me a little about yourself?
I have been married for almost 9 years to my wonderful husband, Scott. We don't have any kids, but we have 2 dogs, Tanner and Toby. I am a teacher for my day job, and a Thirty-One Gifts consultant on the side. I love photography, which goes quite well with my addiction to scrapbooking. I really enjoy traveling during my time off in the summer.
2. How long have you been digital scrapbooking?
I don't remember exactly, but I think I started digital scrapbooking about 4 years ago. It was a slow transition from paper scrapping, which I started about 11 years ago. I am pretty much all digi now!
3. What are your favorite types of products to work with?
I really like textured papers that look realistic, stitching, buttons, word art, templates and distressed edges.
4. How would you describe your scrapbooking style?
I love layouts with a clean look to them. I also have to have the pictures be the focus of my layouts. I can't really think of a name to describe my style!
5. Which pattern fits you best: stripes, plaid, polka-dots, paisleys, or splatter?
I would have to say stripes or plaids - but it would depend on the color! I think it must have something to do with the symmetry and the lines - because they just "feel" better! I am so not splatter, polka dots or paisleys!
Time for Layout Inspiration! Now, I personally love how Amy can switch from serious to whimsical in style, but still using all the same basic elements. Her placement of the embellishments and the way she puts the focus on the photo are the biggest significant chances, and... well, you'll see what I mean below. I hope you figure out what I mean after looking at the next four LOs, all from Amy.
When I asked Amy what her favorite kit from Elise is, she said it was Happy Camper. "This kit is one of the reasons I applied to be on Elise's CT in the first place. I think it is just the cutest!"
So, in honor of Amy's spotlight, Elise's store is selling Happy Camper for 40% off - only $3! Grab it before Friday, because it'll be going back to regular price then.
Elise is also selling the beautiful Happy Camper Quickpage album for only $2, which means you can get this and the full designer kit for a 5-spot! Remember, the sale on the Happy Camper collection will continue through Thursday evening, but then we're going back to regular prices on Friday, so don't forget!
