Design Team Reveal

We are excited to introduce Amy Chretin as a new Scrap Our Stash Design Team member. Amy comes from Chandler, Arizona, where she is a stay-at-home mom to a busy 1 year old. She has been scrapping for 10 years and has over 20 very full albums. Amy scrapbooks not only to preserve her memories and photos, but also because she enjoys the creative aspect of it. Her weakness is paint and foam stamps. She worked at Michael's for 6 years which contributed to her accumulation of stash. When asked how long her stash would survive if she did one page per day - her answer was "quite a while".

Amy says she is excited to be a part of the Scarp Our Stash Challenge Design Team because she loves using things she already has on hand.

For her STASH project Amy Submitted:

You Are My Sunshine

Posted by PicasaThis picture was taken on the beach in San Diego, California. Amy's son enjoyed his first time at the beach and loved lounging in the chairs. Amy said, "when I saw this picture with the bright blue chair, I knew it would "pop" against a yellow background." She chose to make a giant sun, by cutting two large circles of card stock. She really wanted the "rays" of the sun to stand out, so she chose many different mediums to highlight them. She relates that she had so much fun digging through all her buttons to find yellow ones, and also in using other products such as the felt that she normally wouldn't have used.
We are excited to have Amy as a member of the Scrap Our Stash Design Team. She will be a great source of inspiration and encouragement to all of us at Scarp Our Stash.

Please take the time to congratulate Amy on being chosen for the team - and watch for upcoming reveals. You can see more of Amy's accomplishments by visiting her blog at:
