Sunday Spotlight

I would like to introduce our Guest Designer 

Help me welcome Amy to the Spotlight this week.

Let's get to know this interesting crafter. Amy is a wife, mother, full time educator and a part-time cake decorating instructor. She is a crafter who shares her "ART" with others and is a supporter of Operation Write Home, making cards for our Nations Heroes.  Check out her blog All Things Beautiful she has a counter showing her progress of making 150 cards for this wonderful organization.

While searching her blog I came across some projects I would like to share.

Here is a layout using the Quarter Note Cartridge.

This card is made using acetate, Amy has a weekly spot on her blog showcasing projects she has made "Using My Tools".  For this one she used Plantin Schoolbook for the flowers.

This spinner card using Life's A Beach won her a spot last week on the Design Teams Top Five.

This is one on the many cakes Amy has made.

Now I would like to share Amy's responses to our FCCB questionaire.

1. When did you start scrapbooking/papercrafting and why?
I bought my first Cricut in January 2011 to cut fondant and gumpaste. After about a year I thought I'd try scrapbooking. Since then, I've been off and running (to the craft store lol). I added cardmaking to my list of crafts for the simple reason I had so many paper scraps and wanted to put them to good use. That's when I found Operation Write Home, a non-profit organization where cardmakers can donate their handmade cards and OWH will send them to soldiers overseas so that those soldiers can have a pretty card to send home to a loved one for any occasion.

2. What is your favorite type of project to make (i.e. cards, layout, mini-albums, etc.)?  I like cardmaking the best because of the instant gratification. It takes a much shorter time for me to make a card opposed to making a layout. So cardmaking is usually my go to papercraft.

3. What is your favorite product to use on your projects? That's easy! Embossing folders. They are quick to use, add great texture and no mess to clean up like glitter, ink or embossing powders.

4. What is your favorite Cricut cartridge? That's a difficult decision. I own quite a few cartridges but I think the one I go to most is Gypsy Wanderings.

Hope you have enjoyed meeting Amy she will be joining us tomarrow for our Monday Challenge here at FCCB.  Enter the challenge by linking up your project and be sure to list the Cricut cut you used.

Happy Cricut Crafting

Bye Bye for Now,
