We are so happy to have Kimberly Neddo as our guest designer for Makin' the Grade. If anyone would know a lot about back to school, it would be this mother of 6. Kimberly's blog banner is tribute to all of her kids, so we thought she would be a great fit for sharing some of her school moments. But before we share her work, we asked her a few questions to get to know her better.
LYB: What is your ‘go to’ embellishment?
KN: Twine or some kind of string. Love what it adds to a page.
LYB: What kind of music gets you in the scrappin’ mood?
KN: Hip hop and Pit bull…LOVE to create with Pitbull and his remixes in the background.
LYB: Do you have a favorite quote?
KN: Integrity is doing the right thing, when no one is watching.
We really love how Kimberly used our Makin' the Grade paper flower kit. The sprawling flowers are great to mix with sentiments, but don't add too much clutter.
Kimberly also added one of our signature clear cut shapes to her page and made a fun banner cluster.
The grays in this collection are such a great color to ground the brighter, primary colors. Here Kimberly paired yellow accents which pop off of the gray patterned paper and make the beautiful photo stand out front and center.
We love how personalized Kimberly's journaling is and how she uses her own handwriting on her pages.
Please visit Kimberly's blog Capturing the Moments for more about her and inspiration from her work. She'll be back next Friday with another project to share...
Have a wonderful and crafty weekend!
