The FIRST Scrappin' Simply Spotlight

There are SO many creative people out there.  And no one is as kind with sharing their tips and tricks as Close to my Heart consultants!  I am always amazed by this group of crafters!  So, in honour of all those sharing their craftiness with me, I have decided to start this spotlight of inspiration.  Each week I will pick a new blog to spotlight.  For my readers, you will be introduced to some of my favourite blogs I follow.  Most will be papercrafting but there will be others as well.  After all, anyone who knows me knows I like to support all those hard working businesses out there- especially the home based ones!

For my first Scrappin' Simply Spotlight, I'd like to shine it on....

Jayma Malme and her Playing with Paper blog

Her works is just amazing!  Here is a sample of something I created based on the Name Frames I saw on her site:

This name frame is something I made for Kaylee's teacher for her year end/ maternity gift.  I saw the idea on Jayma's blog and knew I just HAD to make one!  Luckily I know a lot of pregnant people!  It was actually VERY easy to make as amazing Jayma gave all the dimensions on her blog!  The hardest part was picking what paper and embellishments to use!  Well- and getting out my supplies.  Oh how I dream for a crafting room!  Anyway- this family hadn't settled on a name yet for the baby but knew they were having a girl and with some investigation work I found out the colours for the baby's room was pink and white.  I incorporated some green and brown and well to bring in some other colours.  I was very happy with how it turned out and the family was thrilled as well! 

Be sure to visit Jayma's blog to see all of her amazing work.  Connect with her blog here to find the instructions for this piece- but don't stop there! She is someone you MUST follow!  I follow her blog with my email so I never miss a post! My in-box is jammed pack with ideas I have gotten from her!  Now go check out her blog, get inspired, and get Scrappin'!
