Sunday Spotlight!

Hello and a Good Sunday To You All!

It is Arin here and I am thrilled to be showcasing a super-duper-fantastic crafter, Julie from Cricut Chirp, that is a total jack of all trades!  She is a wife and mother first, a bank compliance auditor by day and a fiddle playin', guitar strumin' piano pluckin' and tenor drum swingin' musician by night.  Somewhere in between all that amazing juggling and muscial talent she shines up her crafter's hat and lands a spot on the FCCB Top 5 with this fun project!

Julie's favorite projects to do are cards and it is no wonder since they are just AMAZING! Here are just a few fun finds!

Now let's get to know Julie more!

1. When did you start scrapbooking/paper crafting and why? I started papercrafting in highschool for an art class. Then I got even more involved when I had to make a scrapbook for one of my English classes. I became a Creative Memories consultant for several years after that. I loved teaching others how to preserve family memories for future generations.
2. What is your favorite type of project to make (i.e., cards, layouts, mini-albums, etc....)? Right now my favorite type of project is card making. I love the instant gratification of a finished project that didn't take weeks to complete.
3. What is your favorite product to use on your projects? 
I'd have to say that my favorite product is my ATG tape because it holds my little paper world together.
4. What is your favorite Cricut cartridge? 
My favorite Cricut cartridge is Create a Critter. It has amazing versatility for so many different projects.
5. What do you do in your spare time, when you are not paper crafting? 
I work full time as a compliance auditor for a bank. I am a married mom of one 3 year old daughter. I love to do crafts with my little girl! I play piano, fiddle, guitar and recently joined my husband's bagpipe competition band to learn the swinging tenor drum. Our family stays pretty active in the Irish and Scottish community.

Julie may say her favorite thing to do is cards, but that is not the only craft projects she shines in! Check out these fun and very creative projects she has done. 

Before I sign off for the day, I wanted to say how honored I am to be doing these spotlights each week and meeting some amazing crafters that just keep me in awe just as Julie from Cricut Chirp, has managed to do this week!  Be sure to pop over and check out Julie's BLOG, there are so many more "fantabulous" morsels of amazing creativity to be enjoyed. I will leave you with some fun and very pretty project she has made.  You can find these beautiful pins over at her Ebay store, which I just think are fabulous!  

Until Next Week,
