Introducing... Cathy Harper!

Hi! Cathy here with you today, sharing my very first layout for Quick Quotes. So thrilled to be part of this amazing team and designing for such a great company!
 
  
A little about me...I am an avid scrapper and card maker.  I love to create and I am constantly inspired by papers and photos!  We just moved into a brand new gorgeous home complete with my own studio.  I owned my own scrapbook store for a little over 4 years until we moved to north to the cold prairie of Aberdeen, SD.  I can’t imagine my life without paper..lol!
 
I have been married to an amazing man for almost 28 years, we have two kids..Alex and Maxenzi, a beautiful daughter in law, Crystal and two grand kiddos, Raini and Gideon.  Plus lots of fur babies too!
 
I have been published in CARDS magazine and Scrapbook Trends.  I have had the opportunity and pleasure to design for lots of great companies!

I was instantly drawn to the Dusty Road Collection and knew that is would be perfect of this little guy on his first birthday! His gorgeous blue eyes and his shirt just made it all fall together easily!


I had some help from my Silhouette Cameo, I used the sketch pens to add a bit of interest in the background and then cut lots of different hearts and border. I backed all the hearts with vellum and added a glassine bag to hold the little tag. Loving the look of the vellum with these Quick Quotes patterned papers. I inked everything with Blue Moon PowderPuff Chalk Ink, and I have to say I love the PowderPuff Chalk Inks, totally hooked now!
