We are so excited to announce our November/December scrapbooking guest, Heather Shank! She has created some amazing projects using our Holiday Vibes collection for you today, and then has one more project that we will share when our December challenge goes live!

But first, how about we get to know her a little better?

Introduce yourself to our readers with a short bio:

Hello, Pinkfresh fans! I’m Heather Shank and I’m from Cleve, Ohio! I live with my husband of 16 years. Together we have three children and three grandchildren. I love crafting, watching movies and spending time with family.

What inspired you to start paper crafting?

I have always loved the arts. I received a  scholarship to Cleveland school of the Arts in third grade and attended from grade 4th through 12th grade so my love of arts and crafts has always been a large part of my life. But I didn’t get serious about paper crafting until 2006!

 

What best describes your paper crafting style?

I would say my style is clean and simple. But occasionally I love to get messy! Layering is one of my favorite techniques along with lots of dimension.

What draws you to Pinkfresh Studio products?

I love the modern and fresh style that all the Pinkfresh Studio products have. I adore the color combinations and lovely patterns in each collection.

What is your very favorite color combo?

My favorite color combos are pink, yellow and blues.

What is one tip you have for someone just getting started in paper crafting?

Don't ever over think on what your creating, just enjoy the process. It’s all about having fun and doing what makes you happy.

If you don't currently follow Heather on social media, she shares mostly on Instagram! Be sure to follow her for continued inspiration!

Heather has created some really beautiful projects, so let's get right to them! Here is a little more about them in her own words.

Hi there! I'm so honored to be here with you today,sharing a couple of projects I made with the super gorgeous Holiday vibes collection!

For my first layout,( Merry Christmas), I picked a Christmas wreath  from the Silhouette shop and cut it on the beautiful white polka dot pattern paper because I wanted all the classic red and green,with the pops if blue to shine on this layout! Next, I backed my photo with a few pieces of pattern paper from the 6x6 pad, and added it to the left side of my layout.i embellished with ephemera, puffy stickers, chipboard stickers,wooden buttons and enamel dots.

 

Now for my card,I am not a card maker by any means, However I recently purchased  the " Home for the Holidays" stamp set and the " City Scape" Die and had to pair them with the gorgeous Holiday vibes collection!

 

Thank you for all the amazing projects & inspiration today, Anna! We are so honored to have had you on as a guest this month.

Be sure to catch another layout by Heather when our December challenge goes live next Sunday!
