June's Guest Designer is Frances Sylvia!

Help me give a big welcome to Frances Sylvia.  We are so excited to have her as our guest designer this month.  Frances is super talented, and I am sure you are going to love what she has made for her guest spot with Nikki Sivils.  You can check out more of Frances' work on her blog "Forever and a Year".



Here is what Frances had to say:

 Hello my name is Frances Sylvia and I am from Many, Louisiana. I am a spoiled wife, mother of 4 (all under 9 years old…shew!), Junior High Remediation teacher, and a totally addicted scrapbooker. My greatest inspiration comes from my family and friends in the photos, but I am also inspired by sketches, patterned paper, and what product I am currently swooning over. My style has evolved like most, but I usually create whimsical layouts with clean lines. There are a few elements I can not leave off a layout these days, such as, hand or machine stitching, doodling, threaded buttons, and layering. Since my time is mostly devoted to being a wife and mother, I believe that scrapbooking should be FUN!! There is no greater pleasure for me than to enjoy my family, put the kids to bed, and relive the memories that we created once again.

 
Now how about some of her amazing layouts!




Isn't the layout above just adorable?  The blocking is great and the added die cuts of ice cream cones and the ice cream truck make it just that much sweeter (sorry for the pun).  I also love the misspelling of the work "Kool".




On this layout isn't it clever the way Frances used Nikki's scalloped paper and cut the edges off to make scalloped strips?  Again, Frances used the diecuts to perfection.  Frances used Nikki's Summer Collection for both layouts above.




This layout is so sweet. The layering of the journaling spot, words and buttons are amazing. Frances used the Beatrice Collection for this darling layout.  Beatrice and those trees make the perfect touch for this layout.

Well, I hate to say it, but that is all the eye candy we have for you.  There just never seems to be enough when showcase our guest designers.  Frances, you did a fabulous job with Nikki's papers, and we are so honored to have you as our guest this month!
