Name:  Ana White


A Bit About Ana:  My name is Ana and I am stay at home mom living just outside of Washington DC. I have two wild daughters, three cats, and a wonderful husband.

I started scrapbooking while on bed rest with my first daughter about four years ago and I was warned that it was a very addictive. Well those who warned me were right; I am totally addicted to the entire process. And scrapbooking has taught me so many things- that perfection isn’t necessary and mistakes are alright.

To me scrapbooking is more than a hobby, it is a lifestyle. It changes the way you view every day events and it makes you appreciate the little things."



Q&A Section:

Favorite Color:  Blue

I mostly create: 12 x 12 layouts

Guilty pleasure:  Sweets.  I love them a bit too much

Ana says: 'Hi everyone.  I am so excited to have been asked to be Guest Designer for the month of May.  I have been a member of ACOT for about 5 years and it is my go to place for all scrappy supplies and inspiration.   Anyway , a bit about me.   I am stay at home mom living just outside of Washington DC. I have two wild daughters, three cats, a big dog and a wonderful husband.'

Altered Item

My oldest daughter has started earning money and needed a place to keep it.  I saved this coffee can from Trader's Joes and decided to use it to make her a bank:

Layout  #1

I love this photo of my youngest on the phone and it is the perfect for these papers and elements.  Once I decided upon the papers and placement I thought it needed to pop a bit, so I added the Color Box ink.

Layout #2

My sister in law snapped this photo of my girls with the Chipmunks when we went to see "Chipwrecked."    The picutre is just too cute not to scrap and the bright colors of this line goes well with it.

Products Used:

Layout #3

My youngest loves her "dance dance game" and will play easily for an hour.  For this page I wanted to use fun colors but did not want to  distract too much from the photos.

Card #1

I have recently discovered my love for card making.  Now whenever I finish a layout, I immidately grab the scraps and make a card. This Jilliebean Soup line is perfect for cardmaking.  The word phases and diecuts make it super easy.

Card #2

This second card is a bit simple, but I did manage to use the inside of the frame I made for Bella's Bank.  I love finding ways to use those scraps.
