Special Guest Designer Monica Lowrance

We're pleased to introduce Special Guest Designer Monica Lowrance!

Hello all, I'm Monica Lowrance from Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas. I have a wonderful teenage son and a pug named George. I've been scrapbooking/crafting for many years now. I love how this hobby has grown and taken on a life of its own. I love to explore with a variety of mediums.

I am so very excited at the chance to design something for Berry71Bleu. It's a pleasure to create with a variety of tools: paints, inks, embossing powders. I love learning new techniques, and about new products and sharing them on my blog. Crafting is such a wonderful outlet for me. I currently design for 3rd Eye, SOUS-Die Cut Team and Paper Temptress. Thank you for letting me share with you all.

I'd be delighted for your to visit my blog, Happy Scrappn 2: http:happyscrappn2.blogspot.com.

Here's the tag that Ms Marivic sent me. It's gorgeous! I had so much fun designing around these colors with my 7 Dots Studio Wonderland papers.

I love the colors on this tag!

I used some Vintage Trinkets from Prima. My friend Cathi O'Neill sent me some pretty flowers. I colored one of the white ones with Lindy's Stamp Gang - Industrial Chic - Steel Shimmerz.

In the above photo I used my Stencil Girl Butterfly Stencil, newly designed by Maria McGuire, and my ShimmerZ -TextureZ in Gritty Graphite.

I love the vintage direction I was able to go with these papers and that awesome tag! Have you seen the November Berry71bleu Mood Board? I hope you enter. There's still time!

Maja Design was founded in November 2007, and since then, have grown to supply over 70 retailers in Sweden and 90 all over the world. Founder Marie Jansson says: "In the fall of 2004, a dear friend asked me to join her to a scrapbooking course. From that moment, I became totally amazed and thrilled by all the beautiful papers and decorations in the art of scrapbooking. After some time as a captivated scrapper, I got curious to create my own patterns. I have always had a devotion for color and form. I had access to great printing facility, as I worked at a printers office. Since 2007, I have been blessed to be able to work with my great passion - to design and create colored coordinated paper."
