A big AllyScraps welcome to Beatriz Jennings!

We are so pleased and excited to welcome Beatriz Jennings to the AllyScraps design team family! Here she is...

"Hi, my name is Beatriz Jennings, I fell in love with scrapbooking when I was looking through a magazine and saw all of the beautiful things that you can do with paper. Right now I'm in love with card making and altered art. I have been scrapbooking for 4 1/2 years and I love to use ribbon, buttons, and flowers on most of my creations. I don't know how to describe my style, but some people say that is a little bit romantic, feminine, and even shabby. Some of my work has been published in magazines like Handmade(formerly Paper Trends), Scrapbook Trends, Cards, Paper Crafts, Scrapbook and Cards Today and Cardmaker magazine to list a few. I have also had projects published in idea books and had tutorials and projects published online on scrapbooking/papercrafting sites and some e-zines."

These vintage cards from Beatriz are just gorgeous.
