Meet Our Designers- Michelle Roycroft

Wow...just a few days ago we chose and announced our fabulous new design team and they have been hard at it already! Their projects have been coming in and I am so excited to show them to you. It also gives me a chance to share a little more about each of our designers!

First up is Michelle Roycroft! Michelle is a former English teacher and is now a stay at home mom to an adorable little girl - Anna. She is currently on the design team for Happy Scrappin' Scrapbooking, and formerly on the design team for Let's Scrap's Sketch Blog. Her layouts have been featured on Cosmo Cricket's blog, GCD Studios' blog, and the Baisc Grey online gallery and she had a layout published in the Aug/Sept issue of ScrapbooksEtc. While she does mini albums and the occasional altered project, her focus is mainly on traditional layouts - both in 12 x 12 and 8 1/2 x 11 formats.

Michelle's playful style immediately caught our eye - we love her use of color and those photos of her darling little girl are so sweet! These are the two layouts she submitted for our Design Team call:

And here are the projects she created featuring Sharing Memories new Perpetual Calendars, Artisan Bracket Journaling Spots and Valentine Cut Outs:

I love how she cut the calendar apart and paired it with a journaling tag. And what a fresh color palette for Valentine's day!

For this card Michelle made use of one of our free printables from last fall - our December Daily Circles! Why not copy this idea using a number "14" for a Valentine day card!

I love how Michelle changed up the look of our Artisan Bracket Journaling Spots. She rounded the corner on one and used one as the base for her colorful title. Then she completely cut out the bracket shape from another journaling spot to give it a totally different look. And what a great use for our Perpetual Calendars - simply circle a date to remember and record a special day!

Thanks for creating and sharing Michelle! We look forward to lots more fun projects from you! Be sure to visit Michelle's blog - Remember This - to see more of her work!

Next up: Jamie Cripps
