Introducing February's Guest Designer!!

Hello, everyone! Happy Saturday to you all! I do hope that your weekend is off to a good start.

 Today we are so happy to announce our guest designer for February - Susan:


 I'm an architect (and Star Wars fan for the last 45 years) from Flemington, NJ, and married to an amazing, patient husband who encouraged me to share our dining room space with my art supplies in our small circa 1889 Victorian house. My passions are community engagement and smart planning, travel, and the feel of a quality writing instrument in my hand. We are blessed with two wonderful boys and I love to document our family through scrapbooking because it provides me a way of getting some satisfaction organizing our photos and memories while simultaneously relaxing while I create art. I see my work as my personal journal or diary, with images and graphics. I love to incorporate old stash items in my collection with new items.

You can see Susan's beautiful work on her blog - Sdmarchie. Be sure to stop by and check it out!

We will be back tomorrow with a fun new theme and the first of our February challenges so be sure to stop back by!

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! Have a great day!

I love the beach and Ocean City, NJ is one of my favorite places.



Toni
My favourite place is actually my own home. I’m a bit of an introvert, but really thrived with Zoom cropping at my own craft desk during 2020. 

This is from a trip we took to Niagara Falls in Canada.

My favorite place is at the beach and this is at Riviera Maya, Mexico.

Introducing January's Guest Designer

Hello, everyone! We hope that you all had a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We are so excited to be kicking off the new year with all of you and we have a lot of great challenges lined up for you to get scrappy with!

Today we are introducing our January Guest Designer. This talented scrapper has joined us before and I always love to see her beautiful work! Please help us welcome Cheryl Even:

January GDT - Cheryl


Hi everyone! My name is Cheryl Even and I’m very excited to be a guest designer for Lasting Memories this month.  A Southern California native, I have been married to my college sweetheart Greg for 29 years and am a SAHM to four wonderful kids, Adrian, Elliot, Brianna, and Oliver Angel. I’ve been scrapbooking ever since I went to my first scrapbooking party and decided to try it for a month to see if I liked it. 22 years later, I think you could say I stuck with it and loved it! I also design scrapbook sketches and post them on my blog, https://evenmorescrapping.blogspot.com/.  Although my life has changed quite a bit during this pandemic, I still keep busy raising four children and leading a women’s Bible study while finding time every week to sneak away to my craft room to scrapbook!

We will be back tomorrow for a new theme and a new set of challenges to get your scrappy year started off right, so be sure to stop back by tomorrow and check it out!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
