Guest Designer: Lisa Swift + Giveaway

You might have seen this darling layout posted on our Facebook wall by Lisa Swift last month. Well she caught our eye and we're so excited to feature her as our Guest Designer today on the blog.

Be sure to scroll down to the end of the post to learn how you can win Lisa's favorite, the Take Note Collection!

 

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to be guest designing for Doodlebug today. I am a New England transplant from Massachusetts now living in upstate New York with my husband, Tom and middle school-aged daughter, Alexa. I also can't forget to mention sweet Butterscotch, Alexa's cat, who appears as the subject of some of my pages. I've been paper crafting since 2001 when I was presented with an empty 12x12 album as a baby gift. After staring at it for six months, I decided it was time to figure out what all of the hoopla about scrapbooking was about. It took only one class at a local scrapbooking store and I was hooked!

I love mixing and matching bits and pieces to create embellishment clusters on my pages and it's a rare page that doesn't feature some kind of stitching, whether it be by hand or machine. Layering is part of my "signature" style. While scrapbooking is my first love, I also enjoy making cards and the occasional altered project. When I'm not scrapbooking or chauffeuring my daughter around, I can be found puttering in my garden, reading a book, cooking up a new recipe (and sharing the good ones in Tasty Tuesday posts on my blog), or taking photos that will later be committed to paper for all time.

I am currently a Little Yellow Bicycle sponsored designer and on the design teams for Paper Issues and My Creative Scrapbook kit club. I regularly contribute to Northridge publications like Scrapbook Trends, CARDS, Create, etc., Scrapbooking & Beyond, Scrapbooking.com, Scrapnart.com and Stitch Craft Create.

My blog is called Remember the Good Times: http://lisarukinswift.blogspot.com. I hope you'll stop by for a visit some time. :)
