H is for Hearts

This month we've chosen this brightly coloured, fun layout by Carmen Crosseti Henriquez



Carmen says: 
"My name is Carmen, I was born in Brazil. I live in Panama with my husband Alfredo, we have a son David who lives in Los Angeles with his wife Cynthia. I have been scrapbooking for about 8 years and completely addict to it! About my style I can say that it's clean, graphic and bright. I love to try new techniques, love challenges and sketches! I was published at Scrapbook Trends Magazine, June 2013 issue and I'm part of some DT's. I love to scrapbook my family, our travels and everyday life and details of it."

Carmen's blog Scrap Joy can be found here.

We drew our sketch as always

JANINA
Our Guest Designer for November with a chevron alternative to hearts



A few words from Janina:
"Hello my name is Janina and I was honored to be asked to take part as guest designer for the November sketch challenge.

On my layout I used Bazzill, Echo Park This and That, Studio Calico Seize the Moment and AC Thickers.

 Now a little bit about me.....I started scrapbooking and card making in 2005. I do not have a particular style as I do what takes my     fancy at the time. I like clean lines but I also like grungy. I have far too much stash....well that's what my hubby reckons. I'm lucky enough to have my own craft room, which I have to admit is bulging at the seems! I run a monthly crop which I started nearly 7 years ago. I also go to two other crops, Papermaze and another a friends runs, so I am spoilt for choice."

Card Challenge of October

This month the lovely Paula from CRAFTS U LOVE is challenging you to create a card for Christmas using Blue and Silver.


Crafts U Love was formed in September 2001 by Paula Baughan and Jenny Baughan (Mother in law). Both avid card makers at the time frustrated by the lack of quality craft companies. Using a spare bedroom and having a bathroom as a stockroom with an ironing board as a packing table was hardly ideal at the time, but served a useful purpose..
But how things have changed since then. In 2002 Paula's husband Geoff left his job to take over from his mother Jenny. Using his IT, Sales and Marketing background Geoff rebuilt the website and started a marketing campaign, which included full page adverts in various magazines, website promotion and attending shows up and down the country. Using Paula's creative talents and general business skills the business continued to grow and after moving home 3 times in 5 years to accommodate the business, it eventually outgrow their home. In July 2006 Crafts U Love moved to their current premises in Charlwood, Surrey. This enabled them to grow their product range and increase stock levels.
Crafts U Love is currently one of the largest Die Cutting and Rubber stamp stockists in the UK and now also stocks most of the world's leading die-cutting systems all of which are complimented by a wide range of general card making and scrapbooking products.


Here are the cards created by our design team to give you some inspiration.
