Spotlight Sunday

Welcome to Spotlight Sunday!
Today we have a “fantabulously” talented lady and tomorrow’s Challenge Me Monday Guest Designer!
Let me introduce to you to Amber from My 3 E Scrapbooking:
You may recognize this project from Challenge Me Monday challenge #58 Flower shower.

Amber was our winner for the challenge.
Before we show you some of Amber’s other incredible creations we thought you would like to get to know her a little better. We asked her a few crafty questions.
1. When did you start scrapbooking/paper crafting? Why?

I've always loved crafting and I started scrapbooking when I was in high school. My scrapbook pages have evolved over the years. Paper crafting became my hobby of choice when my husband encouraged me to buy my first Cricut in 2008. I had become a SAHM after the birth of my 2nd daughter and he knew I needed something for "Me"! I am still amazed at all the projects that have come out of that machine since then!
2. What is your favorite type of project to make?

Scrapbooking is my favorite craft but I tend to make a lot more cards and 3D items!
3. What is your favorite product to use on your projects?

My Cricut is of course my #1 product! I tend to use a lot of Stampin' Up! cardstock. I have a huge inventory of it leftover from my days as a SU demo! I also love to add Hand Dyed Crinkle Ribbon and Bakers Twine from My Craft Spot to my projects!
4. What is your favorite Cricut cartridge?

This is the hardest question!!! My favorite cartridge changes daily! I think my favorite is Kate's ABCs today, but I do love Create A Critter, Simply Charmed and Country Life! I also really like to use the frames from Once Upon A Princess! How do I choose just one?
5. What do you do in your spare time, when you are not paper crafting?

SPARE TIME???? I'm not sure what that is. I find it hard to take the time to sleep, let alone have spare time! I have 3 girls (1, 3 and 5 years old) who keep me running and playing all day! Most mornings I assist or sub at their church preschool and now that the weather is getting nicer, we'll spend hours poolside! Over the summer we love to go camping and we spend a lot of time at the lakefront beach in our local State Park! I am also in charge of the U-6 AYSO program for our area so I manage/coach 6 teams of 4-6 year olds in the Spring and Fall. It is so much fun and I love to see their skills improve week to week! Occasionally, I meet up with some of my crafty friends to stamp or crop! In between all that, I somehow manage to cook, clean, and craft! I would love to say I read, but there are not enough hours in the day!
6. Any other info you would like us to know about you.

I started my blog in Jan as a way to share my love for the craft with as people as possible and I never dreamed I would meet so many wonderfully talented friends! I'm addicted to all the fun challenges out there and I truly appreciate all the time that goes into every aspect of them! I feel so fortunate to be able to work with my amazing Design Teams...Celebrate the Occasion, Birthday Sundaes, My Craft Spot and Thankful Thursday and hopefully I'll be invited to join some more in the future! I just love the excuse to turn my Cricut on and it makes it so much sweeter if I can inspire just one person to create! I am so excited to have the opportunity to Guest Design this week here at one of my favorite Challenge Blogs, Fantabulous Cricut! Thank you so much for having me!
