Guest Designer Els Brige

It's time to introduce a new Guest Designer, and we are so excited to have Els Brige joining us today!  I am fortunate enough to work with Els on the A Flair for Buttons Design Team.  She worked with some of the cut files from The Cut Shoppe during our team up with A Flair for Buttons last year, and I was blown away by what she created!  And she has some gorgeous layouts to share with us today!  First, let's get to know a little more about Els!

I live with my husband and two kids in a small town in Belgium. By daytime I work as a psychologist, by night you can find me in my craftroom. Back in 2008, shortly after my daughter was born, I got into cardmaking, and soon after also took the plunge to scrapbooking. I found a way of documenting the many fun memories of our family life. Since then, I’m totally addicted to stamps, paper, scrapbooking and cardmaking. I had great fun playing with Ashley’s amazing cut files, I think I could get addicted to my Silhouette this way;) Thanks, Ashley, for having me!

Love This | The ‘Love This’ title from the The Love Club cut file was just perfect to match up with this picture of my daughter. I paired it up with some of the Let Them Eat Pie shapes. The background of this layout is colored with watercolors, so that the white die-cuts can stand out against the background. I finished this one up with a few XO cuts from the XO Background cut file, probably my favorite background design.  ;)

You Are Here | I just couldn’t resist the Right On Target cut file. I love this type of file, that truly grabs your attention. I positioned the pictures of my boy a bit to the side, so that the star in the center of the target wouldn’t get completely covered. Yet I placed them close enough, so that they would benefit from the attention grabbing die-cut. For this layout, I also used a few flair that Ashley designed for a joined blog hop with A Flair For Buttons. I love how they match the playful feel to  this layout.
It was an honor to be here today, Ashley!
