Natasha Naranjo Aguirre
as our July Guest Designer!!!

Hi!  My name is Natasha & I’m the mother of two wonderful children & the wife of an amazing, supportive man. I am a floral designer by day and a scrapbook designer by night. I love to incorporate different techniques in my work and use a variety of elements. Every day I am inspired by the work and talent of others, and I hope to be able to inspire others with my work as well. 

Be sure to stop by her blog to see more of her gorgeous creations:

"Laughter" Layout
 My first layout is based on my sketch for this month. I used the Main Kit Only for this layout.  The doily is from mys stash. My best friend took this picture while I was playing with her baby girl and it's one of my fav from when she came over! I handmade the roses and tulle flowers. Come back later this month and I'll show how how I did these pretty tulle flowers!

"The Cake" Layout
My second layout is a wedding layout and I used the Main Kit, The Embellishment Add On and Flower Add On  for this layout.  The doily and Dusty Attic chipboard are from mys stash. I handmade the leaves and butterfly as well as the title to match the rest of my wedding pages.

"The Toast" Layout
My last layout is another wedding layout and I used the Main Kit, The Embellishment Add On and Flower Add On as well.  The doily is from my stash. I handmade the leaves and butterfly as well as the title to match the rest of my wedding pages.
