I've been a big fan of Webster's Pages from their very first collection and have loved every new collection they've put out since.   Here are the l/o's I sent in as part of my Design Team Application.....

I think one of the things that I love so much about the Webster's Pages collections is the beautiful images on their papers and how they allow for lots of  'fussy cutting' that can be used as embellishments on your pages.  I've worked with so many of the Webster's Pages collections over the years, here are just a few of the layouts I've made with them over the years......






















A Little about Myself......
I can say my style of scrapbooking is a mixture of Shabby-chic and Vintage.  I would say I'm a paper, ink and fabric type of scrapper.  I love to do a whole lot of stitching both with machine and handstitching on my layouts.  Lately I'm really loving botanical and vintage style nature (birds, butterflies etc.) images on my layouts.  If I could get only 2 Webster's products to use on a project they would have to be their patterned papers and their awesome trims, the papers allow for so much cut embellishing and the trims are just so beautiful....the fine ribbons and crochetted laces....just love them!  I find inspiration in both the products I use and in the photo's I'm scrapping.  More often than not, the papers I'm working with will inspire the design of the page.  I scrap both in my scraproom/office or sometimes I just spread out all my product on my bed, flick on the TV and start scrapping.  Right now in my scraproom you will find one full wall covered in slatwall and filled with scrap product.....my children's friends ask if they can shop at my 'scrap store'! lol!  I love to use a variety of techniques in my scrapping and I would say my favourite at the moment is creating my own blooms out or cardstock or patterned paper using a Water Distress method  (The blooms in the top layout picture 'Taking a Break' were made using this method). 

So enough about me :)   For those of you who don't know me I hope you enjoyed getting a little glimpse into my work and life.  Now for the next place to hop to....... Hop on over the the beautiful blog of Ivana Camdzic an amazing scrapper and fellow Canadian!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Very, very stunning work. Now that I look at your picture, I think I've seen your work on Scrapbook.com's gallery? Have I?

You rock, that's all there is to it.
