I am so honored to asked to be apart of this amazing kit club again!! These past six months have went so fast but have been amazing. Here is some things about me..
- What is your favorite technique to use on your layouts? This really quite a technique but I love to use paint on my layouts. Without some kind of paint, it just doesn’t feel complete. I don’t even discriminate on the type of paint either 😉 Another technique I love to use is layering. The more layers the better.
- Who is your favorite designer? This is a loaded question!! How can you even pick one or even two?! I will say lately I have really been enjoying watching Ali Brown (an art journal artist), Zinia. If we are talking about scrapbooking designers, I love Amy Tangerine’s heart and enthusiasm. I have met her a few times, and her love for playing with paper and getting creative is just infectious. I also love using Maggie Holmes paper designs. I also love the bright colors and patterns in Paige Evans designs. So dreamy!!
- How did you get started scrapbooking? I started scrapbooking in the winter of 2014. We took a Make-A-Wish for my daughter Leilani. She wanted to be a zookeeper for a day at the San Diego Zoo. I wanted to document the photos from that trip, since it was so special. I wanted her and the other kids to remember those fun moments of our trip. I was in love with just one stick of glue to paper. Though I really think the chance to play and be creative was just what I needed in that time of our lives. Going through lots of chemo with Leilani, taking pictures and realizing how much of our lives were normal and how much these smiles meant to me. It was just what the doctor prescribed for this momma!! From there I really just have fallen in love with all the amazing things this hobby has to offer.
- What do you love the most about creating? I think coming form my last question to this one, my answer is so simple. I love how when I create and am at my desk, I am not just a mom, a wife, a daughter, a care-giver, a massage therapist, a cook, a maid, a teacher, I am Hannah, just me. I love that creating allows me to be my true me!! I love that I get to be in charge of the stories I want to tell and share for later. I love history and old stuff. I love that I am in control what someone can find out about the world I live in. I also just love to play with pretty paper, embellishments and art supplies, like a little kid.

Here are some layouts I made these last 6 months being a Clique Kits Design Team Member.
I used June Aquarelle Kit.
I made this double page spread using Maryam’s sketch and the May Sorbet kit. I used lots of Exclusive printables from May.
This mixed media layout I made with this September Sundance kit.
I have Youtube videos for these layouts as well. I post often on the Clique Kits Youtube Channel, so be sure to subscribe there is you are not, so you don’t miss out on any of the Design Team videos.
Thanks for stopping by everyone!! I can’t wait to inspire you this coming fall/winter season. Don’t forget to stop by Khristina’s Blog next and get to know her better. Make her welcome, since she is the newbie in the Clique this season. I promise you she won’t disappoint you in the inspiration area though!!
