November guest designer... Jamie!

My name is Jamie Arthur and I'm so excited to be a guest designer this month. I love scrapbooking and really love working with sketches. I have been scrapbooking for over 20 years at this point. I have two children, a Golden-doodle, and I'm married to the best man a girl could ask for. And when I say the best I mean it! This man puts up with my scrapbooking obsession as well as my coffee addiction and my love of books (which are everywhere)!  I enjoy spending time in my craft room creating layouts for our family scrapbook albums. It is so fun to be able to open our family albums and not just look at pictures but relive the memories through the layouts themselves. I put my albums in the order in which things happened and I go year by year. The only problem with this method is that I end up with a lot of albums! I tend to scrap everything, however I find that it is so worth it when I look at my children enjoying them.
Most of my layouts can be found on my blog and on Instagram. On my blog I try to share what materials I used to create my layouts. Usually I am using my Cricut Explore and Design Space, although occasionally I like to challenge myself to not use it. I also love using lots of pattern papers and embellishments. 


The two page sketch for this month was so much fun to work with! It was perfect for the many photos I had of when our Golden-doodle was a puppy. For this sketch I choose to use DCWV: Just My Type paper stack. The colors in this stack are bold and fun and really went well with our puppy's personality. My title comes from Nate's ABC's Cricut Cartridge and I used lots of embellishments from my stash as well as creating embellishments with die cuts from Design Space. I don't know about you, but using up my stash is very satisfying! Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my layout and now it’s your turn! I can’t wait to see what y’all come up with!
