Our lovely Guest Maven for this week is Larelyn Sartini.
I'm Larelyn. Welcome to Tuesday Takes and my first guest designer spot! It was such a thrill to be asked to design for this challenge. My scrapping journey began two years ago when I wanted to make a scrapbook for my daughter to commemorate her collegiate softball career and earning a Master's degree from the University of Illinois. I was introduced to the Cricut while working on that first book and became totally hooked. After lurking on the message boards for awhile, I discovered the joy of cardmaking - my true papercrafting passion. I don't think I've purchased a greeting card since 2008, it's just so gratifying to make special cards for friends and family. I also participate in Cricut Card Fairies and Cards for Soldiers. What have I learned about myself while traveling down this crafty road? I LOVE paper, lots and lots of paper. I think it's fun to design cards that let the paper "speak". Finding one piece of great paper just sets my creative heart a twitter. Thanks for taking a look at my design. I hope you'll be inspired to join in the fun.
Just look at this gorgeous card she created using our featured sketch this week!
Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful talents with us this week, Larelyn!
