Hooray! Help Us Welcome our February 2017 Guest Designer!

The busy months of December and January are finally behind us and it's time to get back to our Guest Designer Spotlight!

Her name is Chris (screenname EMMAPAIGE). She's freshly retired which leaves her a bit more time to create and scrapbook every day!

Here are a few things about Chris:

"Must Have" Craft Supply: Patterned Paper(s)

What inspires her: "The ACOT Gallery and challenges; process videos and CHALLENGES (of course)

A little bit about Chris: "My favorite subjects are my five grandchildren, my children and my husband (and occasionally me). We do not have any pets (we had three dogs at one point) but all four of our children have one or multiple dogs."

She selected the new Sweet Nothings collection from Fancy Pants Designs to create several scrapbook layouts. Be sure to check them all out by visiting the A Cherry On Top Crafts Guest Designer announcement in the gallery. 

"My Favorite Place":

Retirement definitely has its perks and getting to stay in bed a little longer is one of them! Chris journals, "Now I can stay in our new Tempur-Pedic bed a little longer, watch som eTV and catch up with the world on my iPad..."

"Happy Mail"

Who doesn't love getting new craft supplies in the mail? Chris captured the joy of happy mail in this layout. We <3 it!

To see more of her layouts, click HERE and don't forget to join in on all of her inspiring challenges during the month of February! Visit our Contests & Challenges Message Board forum for more information.

Welcome Chris!

Congratulations To Our Latest Sketch Challenge Winner!

We FINALLY received a bit of snow here in Michigan! People who don't live in the mid-West of the US probably believe we're covered in snow eight months out of the year, but it's more like only two or three.

Chilly weather makes it perfect to stay inside and craft new things! We love seeing all of the different "takes" on our Becky Fleck sketch challenges. Thanks for creating with us! 
Congratulations to LEWISBABY for being our latest winner!

What a great family scrapbooking layout! Lewisbaby was randomly selected as out Becky Fleck Sketch Challenge #125 winner and was awarded 1,000 Cherry Points. All of the other participants received 100 points just for submitting a project!

Look for another sketch challenge on our Get Social: Project Ideas page, soon!
