I don't know where February went...I thought I would have had introduced you to all our designers by now! But we still have two fabulous gals to meet, and today, it's Marcie Morgan.
Marcie is a SAHM to two boys ages 16 and soon to be 14, and a girl age 10. She has been married to her husband Adam for eleven years and they live in an older historical home in a small midwestern town. They also share their home with six cats and two dogs - definitely a full house! She has been scrapbooking for about ten years and started out wanted to do a baby album for her daughter. Needless to say she has been addicted ever since! Besides scrapbooking, Marcie also loves to creates beautiful cards.
Marcie has been on several design teams including kit clubs, online stores, local stores, challenge sites, and manufacturers. Currently she is designing for Amy's Creative Treasures, The Little Shabby Box, Creatively-Green, Scrapbook Dreamer and Creekbank Creations in addition to SMS! Her work has been published numerous times, most recently in Scrap N Art's January 2010 issue and Scrapstreet's March 2010 issue. Marcie blogs and shares her creations at Just a Country Girl...so drop by and have a visit!
When I received Marcie's Design Team application, I was impressed by her unique layouts and cards - have a look:

I love the great color combination and the fun 3-D embellishments.

This is SO gorgeous and tactile - I love the felt/textured embellies and the boyish color scheme - it's grungy, but not too dark.

This card is so vintage-y and sweet with lots of great details to take in.

And I really liked the shape of this card - a refreshing twist on the basic rectangle!
When I sent Marcie our Valentine Cut Outs and Artisan Bracket Journaling Spots, I was excited to see how she would use them. Her "Love" card uses one of the Valentine cut-outs as a background for the word Love and injects a hint of chocolate-brown which balances out the sweet pink and dark black colors used.

And in this next LO, Marcie used a blank journaling spot as another background - this time for some sweet-heart stamps. I love the idea of of using the journaling lines as a basis for things other than journaling...who da thunk it?

Great ideas! We'll look forward to lots more from Marcie in the coming months!
