May Guest Designer
Jinny Newlin
"My family and I live in a small suburb of Kansas City, Kansas, just over an hour and a half north of where I grew up. I am a former kindergarten teacher turned adoring wife to BJ and stay-at-home, homeschool mom to Ezekiel (11), Adina (6), and Kaden (1). When I’m not taking care of or playing with my family, you can find me cooking, baking, gardening, camping, sewing, taking pictures, blogging at Soaring, and of course, paper crafting. My love for the latter started, over thirteen years ago, at a Stampin’ Up workshop; but I have been creating with any and every form of crafting media, that I could get my hands on, since I was old enough to hold a crayon. I’ve been honored to have had a number of published works of art, as well as to get to design for some of my most favorite manufacturers and challenge blogs, which currently includeStuck?! Sketches and The Studio, and am just thrilled to be guest designing with the talented ladies at Scrap Our Stash. I hope that I can inspire you all to get creating!"

Check out this adorable layout Jinny created inspired by our April Stash Challenge
Here is what Jinny shared about the challenge and her reveal:
"I just love the freedom that comes with the challenges at Scrap Our Stash! I like to load my pages with lots of layers and details, so I always find picking an item for each letter of the chosen word, while challenging, super fun! Inspiration for my page came from that gorgeous, Dear Lizzy, moon phases, patterned paper, which came in my Noel Mignon Hello Darling Classic Kit this month, and I knew would pair perfectly with these photos of my baby bear. He was just three-days-old in the pics and all snug and toasty warm after his bath on his first morning at home. Further inspiration came from a fun, Washi Tape stamp set, as well as lots of tags, Polaroids, and veneer bits, that I just received in a scrumptious box from Elle’s Studio.

My “EMBOSS” list…

E = eyelets

M = moons

B = buttons, bow, baby, & a tiny green balloon

O = orange

S = silver, stripes, stenciling, & stamping

S = stickers, stars, string, & Silhouette"
