Spotlight Sunday!

Happy Superbowl Sunday and for those outside of the U.S., Happy Sunday! 

It is Arin here and do we fun and very talented crafty, blogging, runner and mother of two to share with you today!  Amanda, over at Amanda's Crafts and More is not only lapping her neighborhood during her early morning runs, but she is brightening the crafting blog world with some amazing inspirations!   This little  mustache gave her an unanimous vote on her recent Top 5! 

If you are looking for a fun Valentine inspiration  this may do the trick!  I just love how she made the cut outs with her Gypsy! 

She also has taken the time out to made a few great videos.  Checking out how she made the Candy Corn bracelets is an absolute must! 

Now let's meet her! 

1. When did you start scrapbooking/paper crafting and why? I started paper crafting in 2005 when I got engaged to my husband.. I began scrapbooking first and in the last 2 years I really got into a card making.

2. What is your favorite type of project to make (i.e., cards, layouts, mini-albums, etc....)? I am a scrapbooker at heart I love creating memorable keepsakes for my family.

3. What is your favorite product to use on your projects? One of my favorite products to use on my projects are my gelly roll pens (white and black).. I am addicted to doodling everything, lol...

4. What is your favorite Cricut cartridge? I have 2 favorite Cricut cartridges Create a Critter and  Simply Charmed.

5. What do you do in your spare time, when you are not paper crafting? When I’m not crafting I am running and working on being healthy.. I have been runner since May 2012 and I just love it..
Amanda is super clever with some of her cards and creations and this one is no exception! 

Check out this fun interactive card!

Here is a great inspiration for an upcoming holiday! 

Amanda has one of those blogs that you can just get lost in and is full of amazing creative surprises   One of those surprises, I will leave you with, is her other blog, One Crafty Runner, that she has dedicated to running, which is her other passion.  What is super fascinating about this blog, is not only do you see that she runs enough miles in a weeks to possible crosser over over to the next state, she incorporates some of her brilliant craftiness there too!  Look what was spotted! 

Amanda painted this!  

Little note cards made for support and encouragement to fellow runners

Until Next Week,
