Guest designer... Natalie!

Please welcome Natalie as our card guest designer today. Actually, she made a card for a pocket page!
Hi, my name is Natalie Dill, and I am a life-long scrapbooker. I am a mom to two little boys (3.5 and 8 months), wife to an amazing dude, and all-around crafty gal. I have a passion for papercrafting, but I also dabble in holiday crafts and home decor projects when I have time. I document life mostly through scrapbooking 12x12 pages mixed with Project Life and pocket pages to incorporate all the very many photos I take. I fell in love with the traveler's notebook trend earlier this year, and I have been actively trying to use it for quick memory keeping such as jotting down funny things my child says or document baby milestones, along with instax photos. When I'm not crafting or child-rearing, I enjoy traveling, reading, geocaching, boating, kayaking, netflixing, and puppy-playing.

You can see many of my creations on Instagram @scrappinhappy. Thanks for having me!

Here is our card sketch:

Thanks so much, Natalie!

July guest designer... Anne-Liesse!

Please welcome Anne-Liesse as our July card guest designer!

My name is Anne-Liesse and I am so excited to design this card for you. I have been a paper crafter for more than 20 years, and I have worked with stamping and card making, scrapbooking and mini-book making, and book binding. I just can't get enough paper in my life. I am also a teacher, a wife, and mother of a high school senior. Waterproof mascara will be a requirement this year...

July guest designer... Claire!

We're thrilled to have our second guest designer for the single page sketch this month. Please welcome Claire!

Hello my name is Claire and I’m better known as ScrappyNerdUK on YouTube and Instagram. I love doing anything crafty but my main passion is scrapbooking. I have been scrapbooking for just over a year now and I have totally fallen in love with the products, the creativity of it and most importantly the supportive scrappy community. I also like to document the everyday “normal” stuff by using a monthly format of Project Life. I am 33 years old currently and I am married and live with my husband and 2 fur babies, Bella and Treacle. 

Here's another look at our July sketch:

Here is her page:

July guest designer... Jessica

We have a familiar face around here for this month's double page guest designer. Jessica Shurts is here sharing a fun double page spread!

Hello all! My name is Jessica Shurts and I blog at Create and Share. I have been scrapbooking for about 17 years, I love working with paper and photos. I have my own photography business as well. I am a wife and stay-at-home mom to 4 kids ages 10, 8, 7, and 4. As you can guess, i don't get a ton of scrapbooking done! One thing that I started a few years ago was doing a two page recap of each month. I do it a year later (so the photos on the layout I am sharing today are from July 2016) and use one of the pages on the calendar that I have hanging in my home. It allows me to stay somewhat "caught up" and I get to display some of my work as well! I am excited to share my layout for this month!
Here is our sketch:
 and here is Jessica's page:

Thanks Jessica!
