Introducing our November Guest Designer Sheree Forcier

Happy Friday!  We're so excited to introduce you to this month's guest designer, Sheree Forcier.  Sheree has a wonderful crisp and intentional style, and you guys will love how she embraces white space.  We're just thrilled to have her!  Here's Sheree to tell you a little more about herself and her project for this week:

Hello crafty friends! I’m so thrilled to be guest designing with Neat & Tangled this month! Before I share my first project with you I thought I’d tell you a little about myself. I live on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia with my husband and three children. I’ve been scrapbooking for around 15 years or so but I also love to create in traveler’s notebooks, pocket page scrapping and cardmaking too. I’ve dabbled in a few other crafts over the years and I crochet almost every day however I think papercrafting will always be my fave!

Today I have a layout to share with you. I love that stamps and dies are not only perfect for cardmaking but scrapbooking too!

The ‘Together’ stamp set and ‘Heart of Gold’ die suited the theme of this page beautifully. I cut the heart out using my Big Shot and plain white cardstock, covered it with Versamark ink then used some Ranger Gold Tinsel embossing power to create a gorgeous shimmery embellishment to use as the feature for the embellishment cluster above my photos.

I used the same embossing powder and Versamark ink to create the ‘Together’ title and used my scissors to fussy cut the word so I could pop it off the page with some foam adhesive.

Once I had my gold glittery pieces ready to use I went ahead and put my layout together. I used black ink to create some ink splatters on my background, some Kaisercraft and Crate Paper scraps across the bottom of the page, then picked out some pretty Crate Paper die cuts and stickers from my stash to create the embellishment cluster around the heart at the top of the page. The little clear butterfly is a really old Heidi Swapp piece that I’ve had for years but still love!

I then chose two more stamps from the Together stamp set to add to the page. I stamped ‘you & me’ under the title, then ‘so happy’ to the right of the gold heart in black ink. The journaling strips and the date stamp were the final touches to finish the layout.

I’ve also filmed a video if you would like to watch my process…

I hope I’ve inspired you to get creative with dies and embossing powder to create your own fun embellishments! Thank you for joining me today and I’ll be back again soon with another project to share.
