The Studio - Happy Anniversary!

August 1st means so many things, but at the top of my list is a happy anniversary to The Studio! In 2009 I found Amanda Jones Robinson's site by way of working with her at Sketchy Thursdays. When she held a design team call in late 2009, I scrambled to get my application in before we left Wyoming for a California Christmas. In January 2010, I was ecstatic to receive the email that welcomed me to the team. What I loved most about designing there was the opportunity to work with scrapbookers from around the world. Their varying styles pushed me to try new things and Amanda's challenges were always great at making me think! I took a little break the past six months, but I am back with The Studio and today is their 3 year anniversary! So, in honor of those three years, here are my top three favorite projects that were inspired by The Studio:

#3 - Crafty Girl, fabric layout:

#2 - Fly, altered embroidery hoop:

#1 - Your Story, inspired by a challenge about books:

Thank you, Amanda, for the opportunities I've had at The Studio. I feel blessed to continue to be a part of The Studio family :). The new design team term begins this coming Sunday, so be sure to stop by for a new challenge!

The Paper Cut has a new issue out! I was asked to contribute two layouts to the paper weaving article. Come take a peek at what I made :).

Scrapbook Circle has a new kit available! Check out True Stories. Why yes, that is a Lemon Yellow Precocious Paper Ruffle Blossom in the kit. And you're right, there's a Navy Blue one in the add-on, too! Wow, was I busy sewing for awhile there :). I love seeing what the design team is doing with those flowers. I hope you'll consider picking up a kit, too!

Thanks for stopping by today, and Happy August! Tessa
