Spotlight Sunday

Hello FCCB Friends and Happy Sunday!

Today we are spotlighting one of our newer FCCB Design Team members, Jessica, from
Cricut After Dark.

We love getting to know our crafty friends better, so here is some information on Jessica!
1. When did you start scrapbooking/paper crafting? Why?
My mom gave me scrapbooking supplies shortly after my son was born, and I'm ashamed to admit that the box sat in my closet untouched for two years -- until a friend invited me to a scrapbooking retreat this past January. I did my son's entire first year album that weekend! For my birthday a few months later, my parents and hubby gave me a Cricut Expression and accessories -- and my papercrafting addiction was born.


2. What is your favorite type of project to make (i.e. cards, LO, mini-albums, etc.)?
I feel most productive when I'm completing scrapbook pages -- after all, that was my Cricut's original purpose -- but I just love making cards. It's instant craft gratification! I also make diaper cakes and have recently begun incorporating papercrafting into these projects.
3. What is your favorite product to use on your projects?
It's a rare day when I don't use a Cuttlebug embossing folder on a project. I just love the dimension and texture that embossing adds.
4. What is your favorite Cricut cartridge?
It's difficult to choose just one, but I use Birthday Bash most often. I love its cute, fun images, and the font is one of my favorites.



5. What do you do in your spare time, when you are not paper crafting?
I'm a stay-at-home mom to my wonderful two-year-old son, and my hubby and I just celebrated our fifth anniversary. When I'm not crafting, I lead a Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) group, volunteer in our church's childrens ministries, and love to bargain shop. I've also recently begun extreme couponing, although I'm not too "extreme" at it yet.
Any other info you would like us to know about you:
I'm so excited to be part of FCCB's design team! It's great validation as a papercrafting newbie to give back to our Cricut community.

Here are some projects that you will see on Jessica's blog!

My son Tristan plays Pop Warner football, so I just fell in love with this adorable football box! These would make great coaches' gifts with goodies inside.



This adorable stork card is perfect for a new baby boy.

And look at this gorgeous diaper cake with the matching card below.




Take a hop on over to Cricut After Dark to see these and many other wonderful projects Jessica has created! We are so excited to have her share her talents with us on FCCB!
I hope you have a wonderful Sunday. I just want to add a note that my thoughts and prayers go out to all those impacted by Hurricane Irene. My prayers are that those impacted will recover very soon!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Make sure to come back tomorrow for a new Challenge Me Monday project!
Happy Crafting!
