It's April, and with April comes some fabulous new guest designers here at AllyScraps. Our first one is brand new to the AllyScraps design team, a big welcome to Stacey Michaud!
Hi all! My name is Stacey Michaud. I am married to a great guy and we have two wonderful children! I am a teacher during the day and an avid scrapbooker by night! Loving all things paper, I scrap to create keepsakes for my family and friends. I get the most inspiration from the product I am working with, using it as my muse. When designing layouts, my favorite part is being able to tell the story behind the photos. I use my layouts as an opportunity to express my innermost feelings, good or bad, so that my family and friends will know just how I feel about them. I have been blessed enough to be published in Scrapbook Trends and Memory Makers magazine as well as several idea books! I am currently designing for Pink Paislee and Scrapstreet.com Magazine. It is so nice to be back at Ally Scraps, which was my very first online home!
Here is Stacey's first project. Love the theme of it and the graphic design. Wow! She was inspired by the vintage images of the old fashion toys as well as the number sticks. These items inspired her to create a layout about her kids' current favorite items. Stacey used papers and embellishments from Sassafras Lass, both the Cherry Delicious and Apple Jack lines. She used the borders and the blue glitter alphabet from the Cherry Delicious line. She also used buttons by Cosmo Cricket. Love how she mixed up the lines of paper and the journaling is just perfect!
Thanks so much Stacey! Can't wait to see your next layout. :) Here's a link to Stacey's blog, since I'm sure that you'll want to check out more of her work! Hope you'll check back later this week as Linda Albrecht will be back with another awesome spring project. Also, I hope you have all noticed that AllyScraps is having a sketch contest... you can check out all of the information here. The due date is coming up soon, April 11th, so we hope that you're hard at work on your entry. Enjoy your day and see you soon!
