Our first Guest Designer: Aymee


Aymee, aka Southern Belle Scrapper, has been a personal favorite of mine for about 6 months. Somehow I stumbled onto her blog and immediately bookmarked it! I can think of two things that I have seen her do that I specifically attempted because of her (the orange ribbon technique she does in this layout and her use of the Martha Stewart loopy border punch). I also have learned a lot from just looking at the way she layers her papers on her layouts!



Just take a look at her layout and you can see why I wanted to feature her. Not only did she use three ribbons - but she used three very different ribbons in three very different ways. She even has a tutorial on how to do the orange ribbon technique While you are there, check out the rest of her blog, she is full of inspiration!

Each time we have a guest designer I will ask them a set of questions about their scrappy life:

What are your three favorite products under $20?
Thickers, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, & Stickles
How often do you scrapbook?
I try to scrap every single day if I can.
Favorite adhesive:
I use a AdTech Permanent Glue Runner.
Favorite paper line:
I think it's a tie between Jenni Bowlin & October Afternoon.
Favorite ink:
Colorbox
Favorite punch:
Martha Stewart border punches all the way baby!!! I am addicted to those things!!! I have about 30+ of them and am always on the hunt for more. They are my weakness! LOL.
Favorite cricut cartridge:

Home Decor'
Favorite markers/pens:
Stampin' Up
Favorite color to use in scrapping:
either brown or pink
