Day 2: Introducing Maggie Holmes

By February 1, 2009General

I am very excited today to reveal a new & exciting spin that we are adding to the Papertrey Design Team for 2009.  As our product line has been expanding, we have been looking at ways to get it into the hands of a variety of designers, all offering diverse view points to integrate with our signature style.  To help facilitate this goal we are introducing the beginning of our Distinguished Guest Designer Series.  We have hand-picked some of my all-time favorite paper artists to play with newly released products, each guest serving for a two month rotation.  I think this will prove to be both an exciting & inspiring adventure that you can join us in!

Maggie's-intro
 

I was beyond thrilled when our first guest agreed to work with us for both the February & March releases.  Maggie Holmes is a name you have surely heard before, especially if you are a scrapbooker.  She has so much to offer and we are truly looking forward to seeing what amazing things she creates with our products in her hands.

Maggie Holmes is probably most well-known for her lasting impressions in the scrapbooking industry, with one of her most impressive achievements being her selection as a member of the Creating Keepsakes Dream Team in 2008.  She contributes regularly to the popular publication and has even had the esteemed privilege of being one of their cover girls (March 2008 issue)!  Maggie's distinctive work also appeared in the 2008 summer book release, Sharing Your Story: Recording Life's Details with Mini Books by Ali Edwards.  In addition to this already impressive resume, she has also been working with Making Memories for several years, contributing design work for use in their catalogs, idea books and other promotions.

Photography is also an important part of Maggie's creativity.  She works as a professional photographer in Arizona for her very own company, which she has built from the ground up (Maggie Holmes Photography).  Her four adorable little ones are frequent subjects of her photographs, which in turn make stunning focal points for her scrapbook layouts and other projects.

Maggie's layout sample
Maggie has captured my attention for some time with her eclectic style that involves layering, an art form that I have been trying to polish myself.  Her end results are always so put together and really exemplify the phrase "a place for everything and everything in its place".  She mixes elements from a variety of styles in each of her projects, unifying them with a common thread that always seems to *make it work*.  I'm just crazy about her work and look forward to seeing what kind of magic she creates with some of our new stamp sets this month!
