Customer Spotlight

Hi everyone! Hope you're enjoying the Grand Opening festivities so far! Sam here bringing you a special post about a huge part of our community - our customers! Where would we be without you? :) To show our appreciation, we'll be going from gallery to gallery, on the lookout for Sara's products, so get those LOs posted! You never know who'll be featured could be you!

Today we bring you Nonnie (nonnie) and her beautiful pages. We asked her a few questions to get to know her better:

1) Tell us a little bit about yourself

I am a military wife who was in the Army for a while - and now a grad student in Anthropology, – (too many Indiana Jones movies as a kid) I am a mom to 3 great kids and family is my everything. I take pictures of everything - I love to capture moments in our amazing lives!!!!

2) How long have you been scrapping? How did you start?

I am actually really new to scrapping – I started last summer when my husband deployed and my computer crashed - I thought I had lost all my pictures and it really affected me – I decided that I need to do more with them then keep them on the computer – so I discovered scrapping – I think that some tutorials from Misty Cato really got me started. :)

3) What program do you use and how did you learn to use it?

I have Photoshop CS3 and I think that I learn new things about it every day ~ I am actually signed up for a class at the local community college this fall to learn more.

4) What is your favorite Sara Amarie product?

I LOVE Natalie – I love the color scheme and I also love Tough n Girlie – It totally fits my 12 year old daughter – and I am working on some layouts with Be Amused.

5) Where do you get the inspiration for your LOs?

Everywhere – other scrappers, ads – but mostly from the pictures – they tell the story.

6) Other hobbies outside of scrapbooking?

My other passion is quilting - I have been quilting for about 10 years and LOVE it – About 2 years ago I started quilting for the families (wives, children and parents) of fallen troops – Operation Home Front Quilters – and I have vowed not to quilt for myself until every family has a quilt – It really hit home when I had to quilt for a friend – as a military wife it is one way that I can say that I understand and I am there with you.

Here's a fun page using Popsicle Paradise:

How about this sweet one using Natalie:

And a fabulous page using Tough n Girlie:

Check out more from Nonnie in her gallery and leave her some love!

Grand Opening Challenge - are you up to it???

Hi everyone! Happy Grand Opening!!!! LuAnn here with a challenge guaranteed to get those creative juices flowing! Are you up to it? We all hope so!

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to scrap a layout using only the items Sara has provided here in this preview.

Here are the rules of the challenge:

You can only use the papers and elements in the zip file. You can use all of them or some of them. But no other papers or elements!

No templates either LOL

You may use them as is, recolor them, stack them up, etc.

You can use actions, fonts for journaling, and alphabets for your title but nothing else!

The object is to be creative using only the bits and pieces Sara provided us with. Think outside of the box!! Get the zip file HERE

Here's mine for the challenge:

Credits: Everything by Sara
Alphabet by Shannon Lee
font: Stamp Act Jumbled

So, get scrappin'! and don't forget to come back and post a link to your layout. One random participant will receive a goodie from Sara! Good Luck!
