Former American Crafts design team member, Michelle Lanning, is here again today to share her unique and colorful projects featuring mixing and matching!
How did you get started scrapbooking? I started scrapbooking right after the birth of my daughter. It quickly became an obsession, and really the rest is history. No matter how much time I have, I always find the time to craft. It is truly a stress reliever for me.
What is your favorite American Crafts product? Hmmm, this one is a hard one. I love the new things that American Crafts continuously comes out with, but my favorite is always, Thickers. There are so many styles to choose from. They are a must in my scrappy stash!
This sassy photos of my daughter went so perfectly with the Amy Tangerine papers. There is something so fresh and girly about them!
