Spotlight Sunday

Hello Fantabulous Friends and Happy Sunday!

Did you all enjoy the Harvest Cricut Crawl? I sure did and I loved seeing everyone's projects!

Are you getting ready for Thanksgiving? I cannot believe how quickly the time passes between Halloween and Thanksgiving. I say that every year and it seems to just come faster and faster each year!

Today we are spotlighting more of our new FCCB Design Team Members. Since two of our new DT members were spotlighting on FCCB a while ago, I am going to add the links so you can see the posts, but  am also going to highlight some of their more recent blog projects.

First, we have Crystal from Little Creations. Let's get to know a bit about Crystal.

1. When did you start scrapbooking/paper crafting and why?

I started scrapbooking because of my love for photography about 10 yrs ago and it is a funny story because I was only digital and then a friend invited me to a creative memories party and I said " I will go but I am not getting into doing all that cutting and gluing, my digital way is so much better!" Then about 40 minutes into the party I was hooked and having to apologize to my friend!!

2. What is your favorite type of project to make (i.e., cards, layouts, mini-albums, etc....)?
My favorite project to make is still layouts. So many are into all of these new neat things and I love the new things too but when it comes down to why I scrapbook and what I love most it is doing layouts!! I love them!

3. What is your favorite product to use on your projects?
Well, this is somewhat of a toss up because I love love love to ink everything but recently I have really been enjoying the bling stuff like Stickles and then the little adhesive pearls and rhinestones and gems. I have just started with stamps and I am loving it too!!!!

4. What is your favorite Cricut cartridge?
Wow, this is a hard question..... I have to say that currently I am loving my CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge but Create a Critter and a very close second!! I am thinking these will change eventually, lol!!!

5. What do you do in your spare time, when you are not paper crafting?
Spare time what's that? Just kidding! When I am not paper crafting I homeschool my children, maintain my household and try to hang out with family and friends. 

Any other information you would like us to know about you?
If there is any thing else to know about me it is the most important part and that is that I am very devoted to my Lord Jesus!! I believe that we are to love everyone like he loved and in that we will advance his Kingdom!! That's about it ya'll, Thanks!!!!

Now let's take a peek at some of Crystal's projects.

This is just a great layout. I love the colors and the flowers and flourishes. I also love that there are four pictures on this layout, that is my kind of layout, LOL!

This box is sooooo pretty. Look at how it opens up with a beautiful flower inside.

And look at this diaper cake Crystal made for a baby shower. She used our trusty 'ole Create a Critter cartridge. Too cute!

Next, we will spotlight Faith from Faith Abigail Designs.

You can click on the May 22, 2011 Spotlight Sunday to see Faith's original post.  Here are some more recent projects from Faith's blog.

This school calendar is such a cute idea to keep track of all the events going on at a child(ren)'s school(s). For those of you who have children, you know how hectic all the schedules and events can get!

I love this fun and festive Halloween wreath. The rosettes are such a great touch to the pumpkins and witch images.

This is such a sweet baby album Faith made for a friend. The colors all coordinate so well as the papers come from Momenta. Just precious!

Now let's take a look at Sherrie from Sherrie Scraps with Passion. Here is Sherrie's Spotlight Sunday post from June 12, 2011.

Let's take a look at some of Sherrie's recent projects.

I love this fun Halloween scene Sherrie created on this card, especially the skeleton and cat. Spooky!

Now who doesn't just love Piglet?! This is a great shaped card, so sweet.

This cat just cracks me up! Maybe because I have a cat and totally get the "tude" on this cat's face!

Thank you Crystal, Faith, and Sherrie for inspiring us all! We are so excited to have you on the FCCB Design Team.

Make sure to hop on back tomorrow to see what we have in store for you for Challenge Me Monday! I will give you a little hint...it's Thanksgiving week....hmmmm????

Happy Crafting!
