April Guest Designer
Joefil Cate

"My name is Joefil Cate. I live in Las Vegas, Nevada. I am married to a wonderful husband that encourages my scrapbooking. I have a 8 yrs. old daughter named Chelsey who is my inspiration! She is my favorite topic to scrapbook and I use her photos all the time. I started scrapbooking six years ago and fell in love with it right away. I am now officially addicted! I scrapbook whenever I feel like it which is a lot. I don’t really have a particular style ,I just love playing with different papers and trying new techniques, my projects always include layering, watercoloring, flower clustering and stitching. I get many good ideas from sketches and challenges online. I love the online challenges. 
I would love for you to visit and follow me at my blog at
or on Instagram

GDT Joefil has created this stunning layout inspired by the challenge to get you motivated...
"I used the middle row (stitching, flowers, ephemera)

I started my page with white card stock, and a cut file from the cut shoppe. I used just be you collection, backing the cut file of patterned papers is so fun for me. I hand stitched the heart shape in the middle of the cut file.
I also used ephemera pack form the collection like the one I used for my title and some labels that I layers in the side of my photo. the flowers I used is also in the same collection I fussy cut some of the flowers and some is from the sticker sheets. Lastly I added some flower stamp and sequins."

Thank you Joefil for providing this beautiful inspiration and agreeing to be our April Guest Designer!
