December Guest Designers

We would like to welcome our December GDT. We are so pleased and so happy that they were able to join us this month and share with you their amazing work.

Without further they are..

Diana Fisher

Thanks to my mother's influence, I have been crafting and scrapbooking since I was a teenager, and now I can't imagine my life without it. When I'm not working with Heidi and Julie on Sketchy Thursdays, you can find me as the Blog Coordinator for the Scrapbook Circle kit club. I am also a part of the Paper Issues creative team. I am lucky enough to have been published in Creating Keepsakes, Paper Crafts Magazine and CARDS Magazine, as well as many online publishing and guest DT opportunities. I have a wonderful husband, my five-year-old son and have a fabulous career as the Production Director for a national teen magazine.

Here are Diana's projects for us this month.

Here is a tutorial from Diana:

Keeping Track of Holiday Receipts — The fun way!

Who says that you have to keep track of those holiday receipts in a boring old envelope? I altered this plastic clipboard. You can get one from Wal-Mart or Dollar Tree for around a $1.

Adhere some pretty paper to the clipboard using adhesive you have on hand that will stick to plastic. Sand the edges to keep it smooth. Then make or use an existing fancy holiday tag to keep the board festive. You'll have space to the side for a notepad, too, for writing down your lists. Clip on your receipts.

If you can, get a clipboard with the pull up tab for hanging the clipboard up. Pretty wall art to boot! Just try not to think about how much you are spending in the next few weeks. :)

Happy Holidays!!! Enjoy the season!

Lisa Gregory

Hello. My name is Lisa. I live in sunny Florida with my husband. We have 2 amazing children.
Our son is married, lives close by and our daughter is away at Culinary school attending Le Cordon Bleu. I have a 12 year old kitty named Willow and I am also caring for my daughters cat Bentley while she is away at school. ( I think I love him!!) I am a registered nurse by profession working full time at the hospital, and I am a Certified Paper Addict. Scrapping happens to be my addiction as well as my therapy. I have been crafting since I was a little girl, although I have changed my style in the way I scrap in the last 6 years. I also have a passion for photography and incorporating those 2 hobbies, has inspired me to create the pages I do. My style is ever changing with all of the new techniques I find out there. I love creating paper flowers and leaves, and my mind is always spinning ideas for the next floral fantasy!! You can visit my blog WHAT A BEAUTIFUL MESS for many tutorials. I am currently designing for Swirlydoos and ZVA Creative. I am honored to be Guest Designing for Berry 71 Bleu during my favorite time of the year. Thank you Marivic and Lisa for the wonderful invitation!!

Here are Lisa's projects:

Here is Lisa's take on this month's challenge. And stay tuned, Lisa will be sharing with us on how she made those gorgeous flowers.

Featured DT Member, Renea Harrison

This is Renea Harrison.

Hi everyone! I am a 44 year old, stay at home Mom. I laugh when I say stay at home, because I actually am the secretary/accountant and jack of all trades for our local family based business.

I don't just love scrapbooking, I am passionate about it. I love every aspect of this amazing multi-media art. The art of the creation itself, from taking the design in my head and getting it out onto the paper, to the social aspect of it. I love sharing what I know, and learning what others share. I love talking about it, as well as encouraging others to take that leap and dive right in. I have quickly become a forum junky and I love the sisterhood aspect of all who share in this experience.

I would also like to shout out a thanks to both my husband and son. They not only put up with my scrapbook insanity, but encourage me to pursue my passion. I have been married to my husband for over 21 years, and he has always been, not only the love of my life, but my biggest supporter in all aspects of my life. We have built a wonderful life together, and have raised an amazing son. God has definitely blessed me beyond anything I could have imagined!

Here are her favorite projects that she's done.

Renea also made a tutorial for embossed chipboard:
