Spotlight Saturday

It's Spotlight Saturday time again!! For those of you visiting for the first time, every week I feature someone's blog on my blog.  There are so many crafters and blogs out there with a wealth of knowledge and creativity and unfortunately like some of you, I'm not able to visit them all the time, but I know they are there. This is my way of giving them the recognition that they deserve and perhaps a few more followers ;-).

This week I am featuring another wonderfully talented lady, Kathryn from Creations with Kathryn. Kathryn is super talented and creative with everything she does.  Her layouts are just adorable and she put so much detail into them.  She created this Post-it holder book.  I thought it was such a great idea for a gift!  I think I need one for my desk at work!! hint... hint.... ;-)

Here's a little bit about Kathryn:
"Hi, my name is Kathryn. I am a wife for 25+ years, with 3 wonderful children, with the oldest being 26 and the youngest being 10. I am also a mother to two adorable fur babies, who are like my real children.

This is a real honor to be asked to make a post for Scrappyzeni's Blog. She is so very talented and so much fun to chase around on Facebook, cause she is so dang funny. So a very big thank you to you Zeni.

I have been crafting all most all my life. I started scrapbooking back in 1980 and in the next 10 years I had been apart of DOTS (now Close to My Heart), Stampin Up, and Creative Memories. In 1990 I was learning stampin and not doing a very good job at it. I had a really hard time lining things up correctly. Well, I have not mastered the skill, but I am ok at it now. So that is how I started making cards and other little this and thats.

The project I created is a Post-It Holder Book. I used only scraps of papers that I had in my scrap bind. The stamps I used are from Stampin Up (Awash with Flowers and Friends 24-7). The images are colored using Prisma Color Pencils and paint thinner to blend the color. I inked the edge with Stampin Up Pumpkin Pie ink. The inside has a pocket with a note card inside to write on. The Book holds the regular size Post-Its and the 1/2 size Post-Its. The book also has a Pen holder to hold a standard Bic Pen. The 2 books vary in size, due to one holding 2 regular Post-It Note Pads and 2 of the 1/2 size ones.

I learned this off of YouTube from ChicnScratch. You can look it up under Post It Note Organizer"
Please stop by her blog and leave her some love! I'm sure she will love it and along the way she can make a few new friends!  May you all have a beautiful Saturday and God bless!
