Creative Team Spotlight: Jennifer Evans + Wonderful Wednesday and One Buck Wednesday! September 26, 2012!

This month we are spotlighting Creative Team Member, Jennifer Evans!

1. What is your favorite Technique?

I love to layer on my layouts. The more the happier I am.

2. Where did you learn to design?

As an artist for the last fifteen years, I believe that if my hands aren’t stained from paint then I wasn’t having fun enough! My twin sister introduced me into scrapbooking and stamping twelve years ago. I kept my feet grounded and refused to take the plunge that she had. I held tight onto my canvas, paint brushes, and acrylics and watched as she continued to write and tell me about her new passion.
A year later I walked into a scrapbook store, fell in love with paper, and I dropped my art supplies thinking that I was to never to look at them again. It wasn’t until altered books and mixed media came into the Northwest that I began to realize that my first love for paint and canvas could be used with scrapbooking! Scrapbooking then became more of an artistic way for me to tell my story than just photos on a page to document an event.

3. What influences your design choices?

I love color. I flip through home decor magazines and catalogues like Pottery Barn or Anthropologie to get color combinations to work with.

4. Who are your artsy inspirations?

The more I work in the scrapbooking community online, the more I am inspired by my fellow team members. Then, I get to craft with my sister, Rebecca Grinder, and she reminds me why I love this so much. She rocks! ;)

5. What do you enjoy doing besides crafting?

If I could spend the day out in my garden I would be content. My husband and I also enjoy photography together while spending quality family time. Our favorite place to go is the Oregon Coast.

I wanted to share with you some random acts of kindness gifts I created for my son's teachers. I love Samantha Walker's new Paris Girl line with Carta Bella. The stickers are perfect for an easy and quick gift or gift tag!

I also used Samantha Walker's Spellbinders set that goes with this line to cut the heart out and thread some ribbon misted with Heidi Swapp's Color Shine in Primrose and Tinsel which matches this beautiful line perfectly!

This kit contains digital die cut lines for the 3d chandelier shown. It will come in three formats: AIv8, PNG, and SVG which will work with most die cut machines. Some machines require third party software such as SCAL to cut SVG files. If you would like to hand cut these dies, simply print out the PNG file and cut with a craft knife or scissors.

  1. Oh my Jennifer...I love your projects! Gorgeous!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Without your readership, I wouldn't be doing a blog.

My blog is supported by sponsors and affiliates. If you decide to make a purchase through my affiliate links, I am paid a small commission for it. This doesn’t cost you anything additional. These commissions help to keep the rest of my content free, and allow me to blog more often.

From time to time I make recommendations of products that I love to use, or products that I have designed. Occasionally, manufacturers send me products to play with. They have not obligated me to show them on my blog or review them. I only make positive remarks about those things that I truly love and enjoy to use. Everyone's personal experience with various products may be different, as we all use things in different ways. I am not compensated for these remarks, and merely pass on my opinion to you as a reader. I hope you find my opinions valuable.

Thank you for supporting my blog!
