Welcome to our March Guest Designer: Jennifer Wilson!

Hi Everyone! Can you believe it's March? 
We have an extra special Guest Designer with us for this month... none other than Jennifer Wilson of Simple Scrapper!

March 2012
S: CY Guest Designer Jennifer Wilson
Jennifer has kindly sent us her bio so we can get to know her a bit better. :)
Jennifer's Bio~  "My name is Jennifer Wilson and I'm passionate about finding solutions for simple, stress-free memory keeping. I came into scrapbooking as a digital scrapbooker but then began to explore how paper projects could help me stay creative. This year, I'm getting back to basics with photobooks and meaningful layouts. While I do love simple, I am not much of a minimalist — I love mixing clean lines with vintage patterns, feminine touches and lots of journaling. I live in Illinois with an adorable and patient husband, two active stepsons and a brand new baby girl who has become my muse. She is pure joy and reminds me everyday why I am a scrapbooker. I am fortunate to be a work-at-home mom who has the privilege of writing and teaching on two of my favorite topics: scrapbooking and water (but not together). I'm a bit of a geek — you will rarely find me without my iPhone or disconnected from the Internet."
Jennifer wants to share a freebie with our S: CY Team and readers  right off the bat! It's a free subway art printable!

"E" monogram artwork by
 Jennifer Wilson of Simple Scrapper
Jennifer notes, "I am collecting E's for my daughter and want to combine purchased items with handmade. This monogrammed wall art was inspired by a commercial product I saw at Hobby Lobby. By doing it yourself, you can customize the look and feel to suit any home decor."
"Waiting for you" layout created by
 Jennifer Wilson of Simple Scrapper
Hybrid Baby Book created by
 Jennifer Wilson of Simple Scrapper
Hybrid Baby Book: In this 5.5x8.5 album, I have combined a digital pregnancy journal with traditional paper pages following my daughter's birth. Templates for an instagram album are available for free on the Simple Scrapper site.

"Muse" layout by
 Jennifer Wilson of Simple Scrapper
Jennifer notes, "I'm currently in a phase of playing with texture, both digitally and in paper. I still love a fairly streamlined look, but I am loving very subtle touches for dimension, such as stitching."
