Member Monday with Rachel Hall

On this Member Monday we have Rachel Hall's selection of this fabulous school themed card designed by Danielle Flanders.

Here is what Rachel had to say about choosing this super cute card. "I chose this delightful A+ Teacher card by Danielle Flanders (DanielleFlanders) because I was immediately drawn to the innovative use of hand-stitching that she used to highlight the pattern of the notebook print patterned paper. It took an already wonderful design and took it to the next level that you can't help but stare at. Topping it off with a perfectly placed embellished star sentiment makes this a card that would surely be treasured by any one lucky enough to receive it. Thank you Danielle for sharing your wonderful creations with A Million Memories!"


Here is a bit more from Danielle on this card. "I hand stitched over some of the lines in the paper to bring out the design. Imaginisce paper, AC Thickers, Melissa Frances star die cut and Jenni Bowlin letter stickers."

Rachel caught up with Danielle for a litle interview, so read on to get to know her better.
1.) When did you start scrapbooking? I started almost 10 years ago when my first daughter was born to create a baby book for her. A friend of mine introduced scrapbooking to me and showed me how to cut my photos in all kinds of weird shapes. I wasn't too sure about that at first! But seeing all of the papers and fun products out there hooked me. (I'm so glad I don't have to cut my photos anymore!)

2.) A Layout, card, etc is not complete without: ribbon, stitching or a new technique that I've been wanting to try.

3.) How would you define your style? I would say my style is one part shabby, one part clean and one part colorful. I'm trying to break out of the mold and play more with the artsy style. I just love to try new techniques and use items in a unique way.

4.) What are you most grateful for regarding scrapbooking? I'm so grateful for the chance to have met so many people on-line who love scrapbooking as much as I do. I also feel blessed to be part of a few great companies, such as Pink Paislee. I'm grateful for the chance to tell my girls my stories and also just to have time to be creative!

5.) Where do you go when you need a good dose of inspiration? Mostly on-line. I love visiting a variety of blogs and galleries! I will jot down ideas of things I'd love to do on a page and sketches and go from there. Usually that will spark another idea for me! There is a list of some of my favorite scrappers on my blog: www.danielleflanders.blogspot.com. New products always seem to inspire me also.
You can leave Danielle some love on this post or directly on her card in the gallery here.
