My Scraps & More Sketch #114 - Guest Designer Melissa Mann

Hey, everyone! We have another Guest Designer for you and this month it is the talented Melissa Mann!

Let's get to know Melissa a little bit:

1) Tell use a little bit about yourself (where you live, hobbies, blog addy, scrappy background, etc.)
Hello everyone! I live on the beautiful Gulf Coast of Florida in Pensacola. I have been married for 11 years to my crazy husband, Troy, and we have two dogs and a cat. My current day job is working for the state in the Tax Collector's office. This can be a super stressful job and it's nice to have a great hobby, such as scrapbooking, to relax and let the stress of the day/week let loose! I first found my start in scrapbooking in 2005 and over the years, I have been honored to be on many different design teams and be published in several magazines. Currently, I design for Citrus Twist Kits, Lawn Fawn, and Elle's Studio. You can view my work on my blog at

2) Tell us about your scrappy style and habits
I love using lots of patterned paper, colors, and sewing on my projects! Nothing looks complete to me without some sort of machine stitching and I typically only use white thread! I still love my circle & square punches and use them frequently. I also LOVE my Silhouette Cameo for creating backgrounds and titles. 

3) Describe your sketch making process (i.e., do you make the sketch first or the page first? Where do you get your ideas for sketches?)
I ALWAYS create the page first and then create the sketch from that! Magazines, pinterest, and other layouts give me ideas for my layouts/sketches!

4). What are 5 products/trends or techniques that are your favorite right now?
1. Silhouette Cameo 2. Circle Punches
3. Gold anything
4. Watercolors
5. Label Stickers
