Guest Designer: Tamara Jensen

We are so excited to feature an amazing designer that we've had the pleasure of working with over the past few years, Tamara Jensen.

Tamara writes:

"I have been scrapbooking since my first child was born, 14 years ago. It has been so fun to see scrapbooking evolve and change over the years. Gone are the days of using decorative scissors on photos and designs have given way to a cleaner, timeless look. I have been designing professionally for 8 years and taught for 6. I love the creative process of scrapbooking: taking photos of the people I love, adding papers, colors, textures, embellishments, and topping it off with journaling to capture the essence of our lives. I find that scrapbooking helps me recognize and capture precious feelings that I have for my family. It is also rewarding to have something tangible to show after a few hours of work, that can’t be undone (unlike my daily dishes and laundry)."
"A little bit about me: I have a wonderful family - a handsome husband, two sons, and two daughters. They keep me very busy and are patient (sometimes) with their trigger happy camera-toting mother.  I love to cook and experiment with new recipes, garden, read, and take walks in the sunshine."

Wow! She really has some amazing work! I love them all, especially her Christmas card!
My favorite LO is Scooter's Vacation, Cruisin. I love the papers, the way it's layed out, and the journaling is my favorite part!

Laurie! said...

Well, I really like the Christmas card (what a cute picture!) but I also really like the If The Slipper Fits layout. I love how she cut out that phrase! I also like the bracket page and how it doesn't take up the whole background. It's a really neat design!

Kelly Massman said...

Of the ones you shared, I really love the Road Trip cruisin' layout!

Here's one I loved from her blog (the last post was in July)! http://tamarajensen.typepad.com/lifeisanartform/2010/03/so-sweet.html

Cynthia B. said...

Great job with all of these projects, Tamara! I especially love your Road Trip Cruisin page- love the die cut background and how you journaled around the shape- along with the arrow patterned paper, it gives a nice feeling of movement to the page.
Oh, and your Christmas card - love how you had each of your kids hold up a Noel letter! I only have two kids, though...guess I better get my hubby and me in there. ;) thanks so much for sharing your talent with us.

I just love Tamara!!! I met her years ago when she taught classes at Making Memories. She is so talented and even got me to love sewing on paper! Since I have twin girls, I love her Enchanted Collection layouts they are so happy and girly!

KarenB said...

How can I choose just one?? They are all fabulous! The one that caught my eye first though, was Cruisin' :D

Your Croppin' Hosts said...

I adore the If the Slipper Fits layout, but the Christmas Magic would be a close second.

Carrie said...

Hmmm....I am having a hard time deciding which lay out I like best! I love all of the layouts with the Enchanted Collection as I am a new grandma of a precious baby girl and I can see her in any of those layouts! I also have 2 boys so I adore the layouts using the Dino-roar Collection. To cute! So, as you see, I have a major dilemma here!

Suzy said...

Adorable layouts!!! my favorite is the Road trip cruisin'.

Kim. said...

Wow adorable creations, love them all.
