On top the list today is Crate Paper's April Guest Designer, Waleska Neris. She has a very special history with us as she once had been a member of Crate Paper's 2010 Design Team. We invited her back once again to incite spark and creativity via her recognizable, modish scrapbook style. It hinges on eclecticism, as well, a quality of hers we have always enjoyed and admired. Please welcome Waleska Neris...
I'm a mama to two sweet, silly boys and wife to a very patient guy. An accountant by day and scrapper by dawn. I love scrapping (of course), photography and shopping for shoes and jeans.
Ten random facts about me...
I love bright colors
I'm very short
I'm a terrible cook
I love to run
Sometimes, I go days without drinking water
I've never owned a bicycle
I'm a morning person
I'm slightly addicted to Peanut M & M's
Growing up, I never had a pet
I love the tags paper. I wanted to use lots of them, yet keep my design clean and simple. I added the oval frame and other chipboard shapes for some fun contrast.
This page was inspired by a fabric I saw online. As soon as I saw the random triangle design I knew I wanted to try it with paper. I used a scalloped square punch with a variety of patterns and cut them in half to create the triangles. I then followed the fabric design very closely.
Thank You Card
One of my favorite things to do is duplicate designs in different forms. This card was inspired by a layout I did a little while ago using the same design. As you can see, I love adding different (bright) colors and patterns to my projects!
Waleska, it has been a pleasure to have you at the Crate Paper blog! Thank-you for being our very first guest designer to create with Story Teller & Pretty Party this season. As is always the case, your contributions are exquisite - sincerely, thank-you.
