Please help us welcome our February guest designer Becky Williams!
My name is Becky Williams and I am thrilled to guest design for My Mind's Eye this month! I have been a fan since way back in the days of Wild Asparagus and it has been fun to watch the collections evolve and get better and better over the years. I am the mother of four daughters who fill my days with love and more excitement than I can sometimes handle, ha ha. I have had the privilege over the years to design for a variety of manufacturers and kit clubs and I love the way scrapping rejuvenates me and allows me some creative time amidst the craziness that is life sometimes. I love dark chocolate and Gilmore Girls re-runs, quiet mornings and traveling with my family.
Q: What is your favorite MME collection of all time? Why?
A: There are so many My Mind's Eye collections that I've loved but I will choose Cut & Paste since I have to pick a favorite. I loved the variety of color palettes in the collection that MME is so well-known for, its trendiness and the great mix of patterns. It was such a versatile collection, there was a little bit of something for everyone.
Q: What did you have the most fun working with? Why?
A: For this guest spot I had the privilege of creating with the On Trend collection. My favorite product was the Mixed Bag. In that little bag are cardstock bits, transparent pieces and gold diecuts that I love so much. I used quite a few of those things on my projects.
Becky says: Triangles are such a trendy shape so I decided to showcase them on this quick and easy card by mixing chipboard pieces and some enamel shapes.
Becky says:When I saw the large gold numbers I knew I'd want to use them for one of my projects. I thought they'd be fun to use on a layout with a picture of my girls. The only problem was that I have four girls, not three, so I mixed the gold number diecuts with some of cute stickers in the collection. I also added a mix of the cute embellishments (diecuts, enamel dots, rub-ons and chipboard) to dress up my page.
Becky says: I kept it simple with this altered frame and just used some patterned paper, twine, enamel dots, chipboard pieces and a little bit of spray mist.
Becky- We are absolutely in LOVE with everything you created. Thank you so much for putting your heart into these beautiful projects- you really made MME shine!
