Guest Designer

Michelle Duffy
"Hi! I'm Michele Duffy and I’m very excited to guest design for Scrap Our Stash this month! Stamping, scrapping and card making give me a much needed crafty break from my job as a process engineer. Most of my scrapbook layouts are about my 3 year old daughter, and she's usually by my side getting crafty with me as I put my pages together. I tend to prefer a more clean and simple style when I craft, but I do like to layer up embellishments on my scrapbook layouts too. I'm currently a design team member for Sweet Stamp Shop. When I’m not stamping, I like to ski and read, and hang out with my husband and daughter. I’d love it if you would come visit my blog at:  It's About The Paper"

Take a look at Michelle's beautiful take on our Red, White & Blue challenge.  
The title could not be more perfect!

Michele:  "I don't own any 'patriotic' paper collections, so the red, white and blue challenge was a little intimidating. But once I started looking through my stash I found lots of possibilities. The blue papers and the red & white canvas stars came from a Jillibean Soup warehouse box I bought last year. Since you get such a mix of collections when purchasing a warehouse box, it really takes a good color challenge like this one to get you to use the different elements. I chose to scrap these photos just because of my daughter's red and white outfit. I was not intending to be patriotic at all. But then I looked back at the photo date and it turns out I took these on the4th of July! Too funny. 
Enjoy the challenge, can't wait to see what you all create!"
After seeing Michele's adorable layout, you should be inspired to pull out your red, white and blue stash, create a layout and share it with us!

Remember to stop by tomorrow for our first Designer Introduction!
Have a Scraptabulous Day!
