You & Me

Ria on the blog today with another lovely layout from our April Guest Designer, Jennifer Haggerty.

Jennifer used both the Main Scrapbook and Add-on kits on this layout. Using the pattern papers, and bits from the ephemera pack from Fancy Pants to layer under her photo. 

Jennifer did a great job using the embellishments in the kits. The gold foil paper from Chickaniddy Crafts has been a big hit, and makes for great titles.

We are happy to have Jennifer joins us this month as a  guest designer and we look forward to sharing more of her layouts next week.

Jennifer Haggerty - April Guest Designer

Posted on April 04, 2014 by

Hi everyone, Ria on the blog today to introduce you to our very talented guest designer for April....Jennifer Haggerty. I met Jennifer at the most recent CHA. Not only did we hit it off, but when I saw the projects she had created for Teresa Collins Designs and Chic Tags, I knew her style would be perfect for Paper Camellia. Jennifer graciously accepted our invitation to Guest Design for us. So this month, get to know Jennifer and enjoy her projects each week as she creates with our April kits.


Hello, I'm Jennifer Haggerty, a wife and stay at home mom from Central Illinois. I've been scrapbooking for close to 15 years! Layouts are my favorite to create, but I also love mini books and home décor! My style is somewhere between clean and cluttered as tend to use a lot of layers and embellishments. I like the challenge of trying new techniques in the ever-changing scrapbook industry. Currently, I am designing for Teresa Collins Designs, Clear Scraps, Chic Tags, Sketch N Scrap, Paper Secrets, and Practical Scrappers. I'm very excited to be guest designing this month for Paper Camellia!

I just love this layout Jennifer created! The adorable face alone makes this layout...but when it came to products, Jennifer used the April kits in such a clean and crisp style that sent me straight to my desk to scrap lift this page. The mix of pattern papers used in triangles and stitched gives texture and interest.

Stars are a favorite of mine lately, they keep showing up in the kits. The mix of enamel and wood veneer stars on the page add a fun contrast.

The silhouette cut title layered over the picture makes for a great design element. Look for more of Jennifer's projects throughout April.

Thank you for visiting the blog today.
