Hey everyone . . .I’m so excited for today!
Help me welcome our newest creative team member

Miss Naomi Atkins!

I first saw Naomi’s work a few months ago when she shared a page (using one of my shapes) with me. It was beautiful! Wanna see it too? Yeah . . . well . . .  it’s on the cover of September’s Scrapbook Trends Magazine!


Is that not just gorgeous?? And her daughter…the lighting…hello! Beautiful!
In case you hadn’t guessed it, she’s an amazing photographer too!

Shall we see what she made for us?

 



[ Shapes | This+That: Autumn (‘finding fall’ + leaves) / This+That: Family (‘family’) / Designer Edition Class Extras (‘beauty’) ]


Here’s what Naomi has to say about the page.

I cut the leaf shapes out in all different sizes, and cute them out and attached to the top right. I used the leaves as masks for the top tags, and then I used the negative space from the large “FALL” word to spray on the burlap ;)


And you can check out more of her amaaaazing work on TwoPeasInABucket.com HERE.
you must. :)


And now here’s a bit about Naomi herself!

My name is Naomi Atkins, and I’m a wife to Jonathan, and mama of five amazing kids- Katlyn, Elise, Everett, Weston and Camille! Growing up I never thought I would have five children, but I do…and I LOVE being a mom! My children are my source of inspiration! I recently left an eight year teaching career at a local college, teaching legal research and writing classes. I only taught one or two classes a semester, but I enjoyed it. Once my business took off, I had to quit. There was just no time for everything! I co-own Inspired and Enchanted Photography with an awesome business partner, who has been shooting a few years longer than I. I have learned a lot from her! I homeshool my oldest daughter, and she is SUCH a huge help to me…she is just a lovely girl! I love to do so many things and there are never enough hours in a day! I enjoy reading, baking, sewing, and of course Scrapbooking, my favorite!

I have been scrapbooking for about eight years! When I got married, I told my husband, “I’m just not creative.” But my sister in law was a scrapbooker, and got me hooked! Then I started paying attention to pictures in layouts that I liked, and wanted mine to look the same! That is what started the photography journey, and I’m so grateful to do what I love! I currently have layouts being published in Scrapbook trends, and design for Crate Paper, the Freckled Fawn, and the new monthly kit club Gossamer Blue! I had my first cover layout in September, so that was exciting for me! I am SO excited to be on this design team. I LOVE my silhouette.. I bought it just so I could use Kerri Bradford shapes and words. I have been in love with them for a long time…and with the other girls on this design team!

 

So soooo thrilled to have you here Naomi!!!

Can’t wait to see what you have up your creative little sleeve. :)

Love the layout and the creative use of the cutting files. I am really loving my “scary” silhouette now thanks to Kerri’s classes. It no longer intimidates me. Congratulations on becoming a member of the team!

I recently got to know about Naomi from another blog and I do love her scrapping style. Looking forward to more of her works.
