October Guest Designer + Freebie time! October 14, 2016 07:00

Good morning everyone! I am super excited to have the talented Bea Valiant as our Guest Designer on the blog today!

I’m Bea Valint from Hungary, a little country in middle Europe… we have pretty hot summers, spicy foods, and a difficult history… I’m an economist and I've always been interested in numbers so right now I have FOUR kids, TWO hobbies, ONE husband and ZERO time... I always have been a creative person never stop with making home decorations, paper carfts and DIY projects. Regarding scrapbooking, everything started when my sister-in-law invited me to a workshop and I became totally ’infected’. My favorite subjects are my beautiful family that I have been blessed with. I love bright colors , little details and cheerful photos. As a paper crafter, I love to find ways to create unique embellishments using pre-made products. I love to start the day with coffee and work out, to travel and explore the world’ beauties, to have fun with friends, but you can find me often standing with crossed fingers next to the gokart racetrack pulling for my sons who are little gokart racers following them father’s passion. My craftroom is always open… I create things together with my kids, sometimes friends, but never with my husband... he just enjoys the results :)

We asked Bea to create a couple pages with any cut files she wanted from our store and check out this first lovely project using our Leaves and Sweater Weather cut files.

Autumn is my favourite season, love the beautiful golden shine and colorful leaves everywhere! I wanted to reflect this colorful world on my second layout using the 'Leaves' and the 'Sweather Weather' cut file. I cutted the leaves out of an aquarell paper and painted them with watercolor. I used white gesso on a grey cardstock, and placed the colorful leaves around my photos. I cutted some more leaves out of a Pink Paislee patterned paper and added them to my layout

Bea also sent us this gorgeous page using our Nana's Doily Background cut file:

When I first saw the Nana's doily background I already knew that I have to crate a layout with this gorgeous cut file! I enlarged the form and separate the circles with fussy cutting. I placed the round photo in the middle of the large doily circle and backed the cut file with Pink Paislee Fancy Free patterned papers around the photo  I created a cluster on the right top using Pink Paislee Take Me Away embellishments.

Don't you just love what she did with those cut files! Amazing! Now, let's get to the freebie!
