Welcome Allison Davis as our Guest Diva for the month!

Our Guest Diva for the month is no stranger to us!  It is Allison Davis, herself.  I am lucky enough to know her personally and she is as nice as she seems...and she is funny!  So, let's learn a little more about Allison and see what she created for us.


Allison got her start in scrapbooking about six years ago after her family opened Scrapbook Generation, a scrapbook store in Springfield, Missouri. She is the co-founder of Scrapbook Generation Publishing and is also the co-author of Sketches for Scrapbooking, a series of sketch books aimed at helping scrapbookers save time with detailed, yet simple and creative, yet doable two-page sketches. 


Last July she introduced her own series of sketch books, Sketches for Scrapbooking: One-page Sketches. Allison is also the creator of Sketch Support, a website devoted to sketches with daily posts of projects created by herself and the Sketch Support creative team. 


When Allison isn't scrapbooking she most enjoys spending time with her two boys, Drew and Jackson and her husband, Mike. She also loves baking and decorating cupcakes!

Allison used both the Exit Here and Noah collections and I think you are going to love  them.  Five projects total and quite the treat for you!


Using Exit Here she created this ADORABLE double page layout. Allison knows how to take a double page and rock it out!

A close up of the title work and handstitching.  
Allison loves to handstitch on her layouts.

Love this layering of the cameras!

 And here is a clean and simple card that is super easy to recreate.  You will have to do some detail cutting, though!  

And then with the Noah collection, we have a card and a couple more layouts.

Cute, huh?  You could make this now and be set for Father's Day!

Allison's signature is double page layouts, but I love it when she does a one page. What a sweet picture.  

We began with a double page layout and we are going to end with one!  
Doesn't this make you just want to recreate this immediately?

We love Allison's projects and we hope you do to!  Leave her a comment and let her know that you like them and we will pick one comment from all of them and that person will get their choice of an Exit Here or Noah collection kit!  We will announce the winner on Tuesday, March 20th here on the blog!

Be sure to visit Allison's blog(s).....

Allison's layout is beautiful -- so inspirational! I love the extra cutting detail she applied to make the card. That balloon is SUPER. I can't wait 'til my NSS paper arrives so I can make one like this, with an Easter bunny popping out of the basket, throwing eggs (hard-boiled of course -- or chocolate, Better yet!!) out of the gondola.

Thank you for the inspiration!

Fondly,
