Guest Designer Yolie

Hello bloggers. Hope you are having a great time crafting whenever you can find an break during this busy season. Hope you are able to stay warm, too. Our guest designer, Yolie from Just Yolie, Just Create is sure to warm your heart with the project she is sharing with us today.

First, here are some questions in case inquiring minds want to know...

Where do you live?  I was born, raised and live in Southern California.
How long have you been crafting?  I have been crafting in one form or another for most of my life, but when it comes to paper crafts, I have been playing with paper for about 8 years.  My dry hands are testimony to it, paper sure dries up your hands.  Or is it just me?  Bring out the Kerri bottle!
What do you do when you are not crafting? What? Is there life out there besides crafting?  Kiddin’, my husband and I love to travel.  We have visited several states and traveled to Europe.  We would love to visit Ireland again, but currently planning a cruise. (I am building up the courage to book it)
What types of projects do you enjoy the most?   Scrapbooking is my first love, but at the time I write this, it’s card season.  Therefore, you will see many cards on my blog.
What is your favorite craft tool?  Well, that changes.  Sometimes my cutting machine is my favorite, but right now, my embossing machine is my favorite tool.
What is your favorite form of bling?   I love my rhinestones, all shapes and color.  I also like glitter however; it sure is difficult to clean up, cheesecloth or no cheesecloth, glitter lingers forever!
Is there a line of papers that makes your heart sing?   “Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do” I simply love all paper so I do not have a favorite line.
What do you do with all the wonderful craft projects that you make?  I create all my cards to give to someone.  I also create them to give away to charity.  My scrap pages are all mine to keep and eventually passed down to my goddaughter Dulce.
What is the next big craft item on your wish list?   Let’s see, I think the Big Shot or the Cameo cutting machine.   Dilemma!  I don’t have room for either! =)

And here is a wonderful card that Yolie made with the cut file for this week.

Love it!
