Guest Designer - Day 1 & Giveaway

We are thrilled to introduce our Guest Designer for the month of February ...



"My name is Megan Aaron and I live outside of Philadelphia, PA with my husband, 6-yr-old daughter, Eliana, and our Beagle, Penny Lane. During the day I work as a software engineer. I spend my evenings and weekends paper crafting, spending time with my family, reading and running. I have had to cut back on my reading, among other things, to make room for my scrapbooking. Now, I mostly listen to audio books on my commute. I enjoy paranormal romance and urban fantasy books, with a non-fiction sociology or anthropology thrown in every now and then."


Now before we share some of Megan's projects with you we asked her a few questions so that we (and you) could get to know her a bit better.

Q: Favorite TV shows?
A: The Vampire Diaries, True Blood, Private Practice and Big Bang Theory

Q: Diet or Regular?
A: Diet

Q: How did you get into scrapbooking? How would you describe your style?
A: I started scrapbooking after my husband and I went on a 3 month backpacking trip across Europe in 2004. I wanted to preserve every memory from the trip and showcase the hundreds of photos that I took. Then my daughter came along, and well, needless to say, I never finished the Europe photos ... at least not yet.
I describe my style as clean, crisp and bright with plenty of layers, textures and details. I know that sounds like an oxymoron, but it works for me. I love incorporating all the fun new products and need to show some depth and texture, but I like to keep things clean and crisp also.


Now let's take a look at some of Megan's beautiful projects.


Supplies: Imaginisce (Sole Sisters patterned papers: Purse-onality, Sole Mates, I Pick You, Girl Stuff and Chit Chat; Embellishments: Notorious Chipboard stickers, Picture This Canvas stickers, Girl DieCuts, Girly Girl Sticker Stackers; Tools: i-rock and clear gems; packaging from Diecuts (as photo mat), white colored foam tape), American Crafts Cardstock & Thickers, Lily Bee alphas, sewing machine, Jillibean Soup Stamp, Tsukineko ink

NOTE: Megan loved the border on the 'best friends forever' die cut, but the sentiment wasn't right for this page and she needed more journaling space. She cut a piece of cardstock to cover the sentiment in the center and stamped some lines on it to create a journaling spot that was just the right size and still has the fun matching border.


Here are a few more questions that we asked Megan.
Q: Where do you like to create?
A: I have a small scrapbook room in the basement. It doesn't have any windows and it's pretty much packed to the gills with my supplies, but I love it because it's a place to go to escape. When I am in my scrap room, I leave the troubles of the world behind and often forget the passage of time.

Q: What is your favorite Imaginisce product right now?
A: Well, I love the new colored foam tape. I use foam tape on pretty much every project, so it's a necessity for me. I am still in love with the whole Geek is Chic line though. I know it's 'so last CHA' but I just adore the colors and motifs.



Supplies used: Imaginisce (Sole Sister - patterned papers: Shop Til You Drop, Purse-onality, Girl Stuff, Chit Chat; Embellishments: Girl Die Cuts, Picture This Canvas Stickers, Girly Girl Sticker Stacker, Flower Snag 'Em Stamp; White Foam Tape), American Crafts Cardstock, Tsukineko ink, Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mist

NOTE: Megan loves those fussy cut scallop borders. They bring such fun to the layout, which is echoed in the drops of yellow mist. The stamps add layers and dimension to the flower clusters.

Weren't those gorgeous?
We're thankful to Megan for designing such beautiful projects and we look forward to sharing her work again with you near the end of this month.
