Spotlight Sunday!

I would like to introduce our next Guest Designer for September!


You may recognize Amy's work from the weekly challenges she has participated in. You can check out Amy's blog at AO Creations.  Amy lives in Texas just outside of Austin. She is the mother of three amazing and inspiring children!  She originally started her blog to enter different craft challenges and loves to scrapbook and makes cards most of all.  I have noticed that Amy has played along with a number of our challenges and is very talented with her Cricut Machine!

Here are some examples of projects from Amy's blog that really stood out to me.

This little beach scene card was made using the Cricut Classic Font, Crocs Rule and Paper Dolls for Everyday Cricut Cartridges! 

I love the cute little birdie in the puddle that is on this card!  It was made with the Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge. 

Look at the cute little girl at the bus stop on this card!  It was made with the Locker Talk, Recess and The First Few Years cartridges!

Lastly I could not resist sharing this Your out of this World Card that Amy recently won Top 5 for on our challenge Blog... she used the Recess Cricut cartridge for the shapes on the card. 

I asked Amy the following questions and here are her replies.

1. When did you start scrapbooking/papercrafting and why?
I started scrapbooking when my daughter was around 1 years old and I was expecting my second child. My mom brought me to a scrapbook class and I have been scrapbooking ever since, that was about 15 years ago and I started making cards 4 years ago.

2. What is your favorite type of project to make (i.e. cards, layouts, mini-albums, etc.)?
My favorite are cards, I love to make them.  It took me 11 years after I started scrapbooking to even attempt to make my first card and I’ve been hooked ever since.

3. What is your favorite product to use on your projects?
My favorite product is pattern paper, I’m obsessed with buying the 6x6 paper pads.

4. What is your favorite Cricut cartridge?
1.      My favorite Cricut Cartridge is Create A Critter,  I love all the cute animals on it.
