~Welcome to our August Guest Designer!~

I have been "'fit to burst" with excitement for a couple of months now, since arranging our August Guest Designer here at Creatively Yours !

It is with great pleasure that I bring to you the news that ANGIE REDHEAD, editor and creator of Scrapscene, is our fabulous Guest Designer here at CY this month.

Angie is a mom and a writer, in addition to crafter, creator and designer... she was kind enough to share her bio and some of her fave projects with us!

My name is Angie Redhead and I am a craft-a-holic! I am interested in all things crafty especially paper crafting, sewing, and all things vintage. I also like to make miniature food items and embellishments out of polymer clay, work in my art journal and on other mixed media projects, and play with my Print Gocco.

More recent crafty adventures have been in crochet, embroidery, making my own stamps and designing paper. My love for creating has been inspired by the life-long influence of my Mom, a very talented seamstress and designer. I went to school for Fine Art and Advertising Design and later had my own mural painting business.

After a bit of time spent in the 'real' work force, I am now a SAHM to 2 little ones and wife to 1! We live on a houseboat on Lake Ontario. Please check out my current day job running

Angie tells me that her work has been published in Ready Set Create, Simply Sentiments, Correspondence Art, Create & Decorate, and "ScrapScene, of course!"

Angie's Gallery can be seen here.

With regard to some of her favourite projects, we are in for a treat. Let's begin a brand new month-- August-- full of inspiration!
