PBD Guest Designer

I am so excited…because

Today I have my first Pink by Design Guest Designer–and I am so happy to introduce her to you! 🙂   She always has an encouraging word to say, and a great pictures of her projects on her blog and on facebook!  I don’t know how she finds the time to craft with 3 kids…but she does it–and she does  it beautifully!

I think you will all love what she has made for you today!

Here is Kathy from   Kathyand3kids

Hi!  My name is Kathy Gillon and I’m a mom to 3 wonderful kids.  My oldest daughter is 15, a sophmore in High School, plays club soccer, and is on her High School volleyball, soccer, and track teams.  My son is 11, in the sixth grade, and plays youth football and Little League baseball.  My youngest daughter is 3 years old and luckily for me, she’s not in any activities yet.  When I’m not crafting, I am an Analytical Chemist and have been working in the Biotech/Pharmaceutical Industry for the past 18 years.

I’ve been making cards and scrapbooking for about 16 years.  I started with making cards when my Mom was a D.O.T.S demonstrator.  I’ve been sewing and crafting for as long as I can remember.  My Mom is a Super crafter, and dabbles in just about everything creative.  I’m lucky that she took the time to teach me all she knows.  So I guess she is to blame for my “addictions”!

I’ve had my Cricut for about a year now, but have only really been using it since National Scrapbooking Day this past May when I also began following scrappers on Facebook and through their blogs.  This is about when I also started my blog.  It has grown and evolved since then.  I really enjoy seeing what others make and getting ideas and inpsiration from them!

I enjoy making both cards and layouts (although I should do layouts more often since I take a million pictures of my kids!).  I usually get inspiration for my layouts from my children, since they are mainly about them.  For my cards, I get inspiration from an event for which I’m making the card, challenges, and lately my new Pink By Design stamps.

My favorite Pink By Desgin stamp set is the ‘Simply Everything’ set.  I like that there is a little something for jsut about every ocassion.  My newest sets are the ‘Go Green’ and ‘Shopaholic’ sets.  I’m having lots of fun pairing up the sentiment with a cricut cut.

I am really honored that Sarah chose me to feature.  Scrapping is my “escape” from my busy life with 3 active kids.  I am enjoying making and sharing my cards and layouts with all my new friends!

“Let’s Chill” – Pink By Design ‘Simply Everything” set

“Heels to You” – Pink by Design ‘Shopaholic’ stamp set

“I’m Nuts About You” – Pink By Design ‘Go Green’ stamp set

Aren’t they all fantastic?!?!  🙂  Help me Give Kathy a big PINK CRICUT pat on the back!

She has more details on her blog–and I think it would be awesome  if you would stop on over to her blog and show her some LOVE!  http://kathyand3kids.blogspot.com/

And…I will have winners to announce a little bit later –stay tuned!
