Designer Friday

You've met half of my wonderful design team so far.  Let's meet two more fantastic ladies, shall we?

Amanda Jones: I have been scrapbooking in the format we currently know since my son was born almost 8 years ago. I have always loved writing, photography and paper products, and have dabbled in various crafts over the years. Scrapbooking is the creative outlet that combines all of my passions, and this is probably why I can never see myself stopping. At the moment I am enjoying mixing vintage and modern products in my projects, and finding creative uses for vintage items. Anyone who knows me will probably already know what a big fan of Precocious Paper I am. I am so excited and honoured to be part of Tessa's new team.

Amanda has created two projects perfect for the season.  First, an altered frame for Halloween.

What a beautiful, simple idea!  I love the way that this fabric flower, from the Festive Fall Bouquet, combined so easily with some alphas and a chipboard pumpkin for a super cute Halloween decoration.  Amanda also created a really creative home decor piece. 

She said, "My next project I started with the intention of creating an altered canvas, again as an autumnal decoration for my home.  I ended up turning 2 canvases into a fall decoration which houses a mini album.  My reasoning? This way I can enjoy it all year round! Once I'm done displaying it I can fold it together and keep it in my mini album storage basket. Oh, and did you notice? I used the red string from the cute packaging my flowers came in to tie it all together.  Again I used flowers from the Festive Fall Bouquet. There's such a versatile collection of patterns in there!"

I love how Amanda worked those fall flowers!  And I'm still oohing and ahhing over my next designer's project.  Meet Anna:

Anna White-Sharman: I’m Anna, I’m 26 and I’m from the UK. I love scrapping and have been creating for about 3 years now. I have a passion for embellishments! I have just opened my own little shop selling my own embellishment kits, The Make and Create Shop. I also love sewing, making jewellery and baking cupcakes! I’m delighted to be part of the first Precocious Paper design team, I can’t wait to receive some of Tessa’s delights!

Anna created a fabulous layout using my Red Super Stars.  Anna said, "I love them, they are brillant for little boy layouts! I thought they would go great with the Mickey Mouse cake I made my nephew for his 2nd Birthday. I wanted the stars to stand out so used black cardstock. I then used die cut, star cardstock as a mask to mist over using a silver shimmer mist to make the star pattern." 

A talented scrapbooker and cake-decorator this gal is!  Thank you, ladies, for your fabulous work!  I would normally give you some sort of coupon code right now, but today I am announcing another kind of sale over on Facebook.  You may want to stop by ;).

Have a great Friday! Tessa
