Spotlight Sunday

Welcome to Spotlight Sunday!

Today's awesomely talented Spotlight Guest is Marcia of Marcia's Memories .

Marcia was a Design Team Top 5 pick for Challenge #89 where she made this super pretty gift bag.

If you check around Marcia's blog you will find even more crafty stuff...

Let's get to know Marcia a little bit better....

When did you start scrapbooking/paper crafting and why?

I started paper crafting after my husband bought me my 1st Cricut about 4 years ago. I have always thought I had an artistic flair, and I just love to put my thoughts into designs that others may enjoy.

What is your favorite type of project to make (i.e., cards, layouts, mini-albums, etc....)?

My favorite project to make are cards, with easel cards being my favorite. I make a special card for each family and friend’s special day and I tailor that design to fit that person’s personality. I also make all of our Christmas cards to give that hand-made personal touch for the holidays.
What is your favorite product to use on your projects?

I love to use Cricut cuts and Cuttlebug embossing on my projects. Although, I do use stamps and some digital images, my mainstay is individual cuts that are “popped” for dimension and embellished with items that give it that certain “bling."

What is your favorite Cricut cartridge?

My favorite has always been Home D├ęcor. This cartridge has some very pretty unique images that can be used in a variety of ways, and I always seem to turn to it when I get stuck for a certain cut. I am also a big fan of A Child’s Year and Winter Woodland. The font on WW is fantastic!

 What do you do in your spare time, when you are not paper crafting?

I enjoy camping during the summer months, and am also an amateur photographer. Much of my free time is spent taking photos of nature and landscapes. My second love for being outdoors is gardening and landscaping. I can’t wait for the spring thaw, so I can plant accent color annuals for curb appeal. I also have a fish pond that usually attracts some residents frogs for the summer. We also have a dog named Marley who refuses to grow up, so I guess that most of my time, when I am not in my craft room, is taken up being one with nature....either planting, photographing, or feeding it!
Any other information you would like us to know about you?

I am a new grandmother! My first grandchild, Maddix, was born in May. Although he lives a couple of hours away, we make it a point to see him as often as we can. One of his Christmas presents this year was a scrapbook, which is posted on my blog: http://marciasmemories.blogspot.com
I am married to my wonderful husband, Ron, and he is so supportive of everything I do. In fact, he is my biggest fan. Life is good and I enjoy every day.

YAY! Thanks Marcia. Please hop on over to Marcia's Memories  and check out all her other wonderful creations.

Marcia will be joining us tomorrow for Challenge Me Monday. Can't wait to see you there.

Be Blessed, Beckie
