With June comes the arrival of another Distinguished Guest Designer to join the ranks of the PTI design team for a two month rotation. I honestly couldn't be more thrilled to be introducing none other than THE Wendy Sue Anderson!
Wendy Sue lives in a beautiful mountain valley in Utah with her husband and four beautiful children. She says she has always kept a scrapbook, but became obsessed (in a good way, of course) with scrapbooking shortly after she was married in 1993.
She graces the pages of just about every publication in our industry including Creating Keepsakes, Paper Crafts, Simple Scrapbooks, Scrapbook Trends, Scrapbooks Etc., and last but not least, Cards. The amazing thing about this talented artist is the versatile way she is able to mold her creativity from one area of expertise to another. Her multi-faceted portfolio includes concentrations in scrapbooking, mini albums, card-making, gifts, home decor and so much more!
Wendy Sue has been fortunate to work with some of her favorite manufacturers over the years, including her current affiliation with both Making Memories & American Crafts. Through hard work & dedication she has built a reputation that is now a highly sought after commodity!
One of my favorite things about Wendy Sue's work is her use of color! She always incorporates the most amazing color schemes into her projects and keeps everything perfectly balanced. Wendy Sue practices one of my favorite design rules consistently, which I associate with so well, and that is the rule of threes. Notice in her layout above how she has three uses of "bright rainbow" elements, forming a triangle. Anytime you see one of her projects, look for that trait and I am sure you will find the balance too!
Wendy Sue says she has been a huge stamping fan for a long time and that she loves the artistic look it can add to a project. But admits that she is more of a collector and admirer until recently. As with many things in life, age and experience helped her to gain a new perspective and she has recently delved into the world of stamping and loving it!
We are just thrilled to have Wendy Sue on board with us and her eye for all the little details. I hope you will join us in giving her a BIG Papertrey-style welcome!
And a BIG giveaway!
