Guest Designer Paige Evans

This month's Guest Designer always catches my eye with her amazing layouts using cut files...and I especially love seeing what she creates every year for her Halloween layouts!  So it was a no-brainer, to invite the very talented Paige Evans to be our guest for October!  Let's get to know a little bit more about Paige!

I've been scrapping for 13 years, ever since I was 16 years old and got my very first job at a scrapbooking store in Redmond, WA called Yesterdays. They didn't even have an application, just took my name and phone number. I wonder what my life would be like now had I not walked into that store that fateful day because so much of my life has revolved around scrapbooking since then! I work from home as a mom by day and by night I manage the American Crafts blog and design team and am on the Studio Calico Creative Team. I also love teaching classes near and far. Basically, I LOVE scrapbooking! I've been married to my husband Chris for 7 years and we have a 4-year-old son named Fox and a 2-year-old daughter named Jane. Currently we're living on an Army base in Grafenwöehr, Germany. My husband is a dentist in the Army and we're loving our adventures here!

And here is what Paige created using the Tangled Web background cut file, from The Cut Shoppe.

WOW!!  Definitely a boo-tiful layout!  I love that Paige always comes up with such unique designs!  She made great use of the webs, by adding cute stickers, wood veneers and cork pieces.

And Paige didn't stop there!  She created a second layout using the Right on Target cut file!

How fun is this page design?!  I love how Paige cut the circle in half and made it flow off of the page!  And the tags tucked in behind the circles are so cute!  She always makes me think, "now, why didn't I think of that??!!"!

Thanks so much for guesting for us this month, Paige!  You can follow Paige via Social Media, by checking out her Blog for links!  Find her at PAIGEANDCHRIS.COM.
