Ashley Horton Guest Designer Announcement

Hi!  My name is Ashley Horton and I live in the Southern US with my husband Tyler and our three children.  I started scrapbooking about 8 years ago, and have been in love with it ever since.  Scrapbooking has always been a fun creative outlet for me and I also set goals that I wanted to achieve, and have been very fortunate in recent years to be published in several paper and online magazines and have designed for a variety of Blogs and Manufacturers.  I am currently designing for American Crafts, Chic Tags, Silhouette, Echo Park, Creative Scrappers, and Get It Scrapped!  I like to have fun when I am creating and enjoy telling the stories of our family on my layouts.  Even though Scrapbooking takes up the majority of my free time, I also enjoy cooking, reading, and watching movies!

I Love You

I love to look through my Pinterest feed for inspiration, and I’ve come across the ABC I <3 U canvas many times.  I thought it would be a fun idea to translate the same look onto a layout.  I started this page by placing my photos in the area that I wanted them on the layout.  After they were in place, I started placing the Cherish Thickers to form the look of the canvas on my layout.  When my basic elements were in pace, I embellished with the Freckled Fawn and Studio Calico wood veneers.  And I added some of the Studio Calico cork chevron pieces and one of the arrows, to add movement to my page.  I also cut a large heart shape on my Cameo, and then traced it onto my layout, to stitch the heart around my photos and ABC “canvas”.

I wanted to use a bold background paper for my card base, so I chose the Floral pattern from the Studio Calico Printshop collection.  I cut the paper to fit on the White cardstock base, from the cardstock included in the Kit.  Since I used a busier background paper, I went with a more neutral look for my embellishments on the card.  I used one of the Standouts from the Crate Paper Love Notes collection, to add dimension to my card, and a small bit of twine for extra texture.
