We are so excited to have Jennifer Haggerty on the blog today as our guest!! Here is a little about Jennifer:
Hi I'm Jennifer and I'm so excited to be a guest on the blog today! I am currently a stay at home mom to two beautiful children. My husband helps run his family's company here in Central Illinois. I've been a licensed dental hygienist for 20 years and occasionally substitute in offices as needed. I've been scrapbooking for 15 years and love trying new trends, as the industry is always changing.
First, I'd like to share two layouts I created with the Family Stories collection. This is one of my absolute favorites as I love the colors of this line! It is SO fun to work with!
I love layering all of the fun embellishments offered with Family Stories: from the die cuts, to the chipboard, brads, layered stickers, sequins, and enamel dots!
Next up is another layout using Family Stories called 'Loved". The sentiments on the die cut and chipboard sheet are perfect for documenting the special someone in your life. And for me, its my husband Chris! One of the things I really like about this line is the chipboard "people"!
Here, I layered the die cut pennants with a strip of patterned paper. I used my sewing machine to stitch through and then followed up with adding enamel dots, sequins, and die cut pieces.
Next, I created two layouts using Masquerade! I was so excited to find out Teresa was coming out with another Halloween line (its my favorite holiday!) Masquerade has the traditional orange and black colors of Halloween but I LOVE the purple enamel dots!
For this first layout, I used the die cut pennants to create a fun banner across the top corner of my page. I added in some of the decorative brads, die cuts, and enamel dots to accent.
On this layout, I used a repeating triangle pattern that I cut with my Silhouette. Some of the triangles are reversed images with the patterned paper being under the cardstock. I also stitched the edges of each with my sewing machine.
Here is a close up of the triangles: I did add sequins to the very top and bottom triangles and stitched through with my sewing machine.
I love using small clusters of pennants on my pages. Here, I placed a few at the top, adding some gold glitter tape and one of the decorative brads.
Thank you for looking today and having me as guest! I hope this inspires you to do some crafting of your own with one of Teresa's great collections!
