Guest Designer - Suzi McManus

It is time to welcome our Guest Designer for the Groundhog Day challenge. Say hello to Suzi McManus of Suzi Mac Crafty Creations who was the Design Team's top pick from the Deck the Halls challenge.

I live in Scotland, married for 43 years with 2 grown up children and 5 beautiful Grandchildren. I started paper crafting 10 years ago when I retired and it has become my life passion. One of my 1st DT positions was with Linda on The Prairie Fairy challenge blog.

I make albums for my female friends and family members for Birthday's, Christmas, Anniversaries etc. I have a few coming up this month so thought I'd make a start on my Album Stash (so to speak)

For this one I used Tonic Studios My Memory Book Gift box collection, which gave me all the basic dies to create the gift box and album.

I chose to use Gi Kerr's Happiness in crafting digital butterfly collection papers to decorate and of course my water colour card to create my handmade flowers and leaves.

The page layouts are created using my imagination so it gives every album a different look and layout.

To get all the details on how this album and matching box came together along with the gorgeous handmade flowers, pop over to Suzi's blog post. Once you have checked out her blog, come on back and share what repetitive crafting item or technique you use in our Groundhog Day challenge.

The challenge can be found HERE and runs through 11:55 pm EST on Tuesday, February 16th.
