Meet our Designers - Joan Liddle

Our next designer Joan is a teacher (ahh, a girl after my own heart!) and lives in northeast Ohio with her husband, college-age daughter and her cute little dog - a chihuahua named Chiquita.  She loves to scrapbook, but also creates cards,  some mixed media and home decor items.  Joan generously shares her work on several other design teams - Creative Cookbooking, Create It - Green! and Moments Recorded, and was formerly a DT member for Christmas Cards All Year 'Round. Her work has been published in Somerset Home, Somerset Holidays & Celebrations, Take Ten, Stamper's Sampler and Stamping, Stationery & Scrapbooking. As well, she has been featured in Basic Grey's online gallery. Joan's work is so happy and bright and it made me feel good as soon as I saw the pieces she submitted with her Design Team application. First, a layout full of energy and bright colors:

 ...and this wonderful altered journal. Who wouldn't want to write in this every day?

Joan told me that she loved our new Perpetual Calendars and created several projects using them -

A frame...

This delish little recipe book "January 2 December" (with three pages shown)...

I love how Joan used the same design for each page and simply changed up the colors and patterns! It would be quick to replicate and wouldn't it make a lovely shower gift for a new bride? Joan also altered this adorable clothespeg using one of our coordinating bracket shaped Journaling Spots to hold all those yummy recipes...

Last but certainly not least, Joan used another calendar along with one of our Valentine Cut-Outs to highlight a month in the life of sweet baby Milo on this adorable scrapbook page...

So cute! Joan has certainly been prolific this month! We are so glad to have her on board and can't wait to see what else she has up her very versatile sleeves in months to come! Thanks Joan!
