Scrapbooking and Beyond Spring 2009




I am SO excited!! Well actually, I'm STOKED!!! I have a layout in the latest edition of Scrapbooking & Beyond!! Yeah, me!!! This is my first 'official' layout in a real life bonafide paper publication!!!

Scrapbooking & Beyond is doing a series titled 'A Flourish for Every Season'. Each issue will focus on a different flourish technique. This is the first layout in a series of 4. The Spring issue focuses on using crystal flourishes.

I am privileged to share in this wonderful opportunity with my super talented friends Liz Qualman, Gabrielle Pollacco, and Robbie Herring!! Liz is also the project coordinator!

Scrapbooking & Beyond Magazine is an amazingly beautiful quarterly publication. Look for it at a store new you!

Here's the layout I created for the Spring edition.



We live in the country and every year we get to witness the miracle of Spring. This newborn fawn is only several hours old!
To create my flourishes I used a combination of colored rhinestones & pearls. I stamped my image onto a transparency to use as my placement guide. This technique is easy and assures perfect results every time.
