Tracie Claiborne, Co-Host of The Scrap Gals Podcast

Welcome Tracie (and Tiffany)!
Tracie says: "I'm really happy with all the layouts I made with the kit. My motto is "Start with the Story" and I think I did a good job sticking to that on the projects I completed. My favorite would have to be the "things I tell myself." I am now a lover of stencils!!! I have owned numerous stencils for years and a blending tool but finally got the nerve to put them both together for this layout with Jenni's fabulous "chicken feed" ink pad. I made simple text boxes in Word after measuring the stencil and it was really quite a quick process to make the page. Thanks to Jenni for offering such great stencils in her kit! This kit was really fun to work with. I plan to make about 2-3 cards with my left-overs and maybe a mini-album!"
"I love to sit in this light filled room and create with all my scrappy treasures organized carefully by color. This is also where we tape The Scrap Gals Podcast with Tiffany and Tracie!" 

"My favorite pic right now is from January of this year. My daughter had just gotten glasses the day before and she came to my office and looked over the counter at me and she was so cute I couldn't stop giggling. Every time I see her in her glasses, I giggle because she's so darn cute!" 
Pin It!
