Guest Post from Teresa Collins Design Team

Today is an exciting day! We welcome two Teresa Collins Design Team members onto our blog (Amanda and Yvonne) and two of ours (Lowri and Sandy) are being showcased on their blog! There's a chance to win a $20 prize pack from Teresa Collins - so be sure to get all the way to the bottom of the posts and follow the instructions!

Hi everyone!

It's Amanda here from the Teresa Collins design team to share with you a layout I created with the Fabrications Canvas collection. I created this page for my son. Although the Fabrications Canvas line has a lot of feminine prints and details, the bolder hues and subtler designs mean you can just as easily create boy projects, which is good news for me as I have a 9 year old son and I don't have many girly photographs ;)

This picture was taken at Easter, so I wanted to use plenty of color and details to reflect the time of year. I decided to risk a bolder floral print behind my photo which I think worked really well without making the page too girly. Fabrications Canvas is so versatile! Thank you for the opportunity to share here at Artfull Crafts!

You can find more from me on my blog at and if you'd like to keep up with the latest from Teresa Collins Designs, come and join us on Facebook -

Hi Everyone

My name is Yvonne Blair and I am very happy to share some of my work with you. I am very fortunate to be on Teresa Collin’s Design Team. I love her style and what she stands for in the paper crafting community! Her papers are so beautiful and her new line Sweet Afternoon is one of my very favorites. It is simply beautiful. I love how fresh and fun it is.

This layout is featuring my daughter Breanna. I love these pictures of my daughter and really wanted to perfect paper to showcase them. Here is a little close up.

I double layered the butterflies with Sweet Afternoon Paper with Vellum on top. The flowers were cut out from the 6 x 6 pad. Love being able to cut smaller size embellies out of the paper.
Sweet Afternoon is so very versatile. It can really be used for so many things. Spring, Easter, the everyday, special events, boy or girl. It is really that fabulous!

I am so excited to be able to share some of my work with you...I hope you enjoy! If you would like to visit my blog and see some more of my work, go my blog. Hope to have you for a visit, wink.
