The Country Scrapper

I first introduced The Country Scrapper many years ago and I have followed her from the very beginning. Amber has been scrapbooking for 20 something years but today I call her an expert and one of the fastest up and coming crafters out there. She is dedicated to whatever endeavor she embarks on. She is a country girl, married, a RN Pediatric nurse, farmer, gardner and scrapper. I'm going to share some of my favorite projects.

There is no way I could show all of her projects that are worthy so take a look at her blog and be blown away as I am. The Country Scrapper

Amber has been and is on many design teams on which she excells. Visit her little country...scrappy...wonderful home on the web. I expect 2012 will be an even scrappier year for her. Thank you Amber for letting me showcase your blog on this 1st day of 2012.

Say Hi to Ellen!

I'm back again with another creative blog for you. I visited Holland this time and loved Ellen's blog which has a real vintage feel and such beautifully crafted items. Loved the pin cushion and paper flowers. Ellen is a real talent and has such a range of projects from cards to lavender sachets. She also uses some of my most favourite bears The Tatty Teddys, I have a small collection of them at home myself. So if you want some crafty inspiration, take some time and visit Ellen HERE.

Debbie's Little Pleasures

I just love those doggies!

Wheee! I'm on a roll this weekend folks, another fabulous blog to feature. This time from Debbie in the US. Lots of beautiful layouts to show you and it was soooo hard to choose which ones to feature. There is vintage, modern candy colours and some great family photos. I absolutely loved the "journaling clouds" on her Measure Time in Moments layout. Her use of layers and fun elements from the gramophone to the gum ball machine. Such fantastic vintage images that definitely bring back memories of days gone by.

Hop across the pond and visit Debbie HERE.

Beata's Beautiful Blog

Hi everyone, Dawn here featuring another wonderful blog. Beata is Polish and I came upon her blog quite by accident but boy was I there for ages. It is full of such great cards, layouts, altered books and much more. I really loved her napkin rings what a great idea for colour co-ordinating a dinner party. Her cards have a distinct vintage feel and are just so beautiful to look at - gorgeous papers, stamping and colours.

So sit back and enjoy! Vist Beata HERE

Meet Teri Anderson

Hi my dears, Anthonette here to bring you one of my all-time favorite card designers, Teri Anderson. You can visit Teri and her blog, A bit this. A bit of that

She is such a amazing talent. Check out this Hello card. I absolutely love baker's twine, so this card made me say WOW! I even made a similar card because I was so inspired.

She is one of the Go To Gals for Paper Crafts magazine. She's also on the design teams for several manufacturers (like Technique Tuesday, Lawn Fawn, GCD Studios, and Paper Smooches).

I immediately fell in love with her style 2 years ago. In her own words, she describes her style as:
It's kind of a "where it takes me style". I like clean and graphic, but I like fun and cute. It depends a lot on the products I am using.

I met Teri over a year ago and got to see her when she was teaching at a local Scrapbook Expo earlier this year. She is such a sweetie!

I had a hard time narrowing down what cards to show you, since I love everything she makes.

Stop by Teri's blog today and enjoy. Tell her you saw her on Inspirational. Thanks and have a great day!
