Last, but not least... Please Welcome Mrs. Tiffany Morgan on to the Piece Corps (Design Team)

I am a big fan of Tiffany's Shabby Chic Style.  I met her through my Etsy shop and have been tuned in to her videos and blog since!  She is truly an amazing artist and best of all a devoted mother!  Thank you Tiffany for joining the Piece Corps and I know you will continue to amaze us with every project you create!
A little about Tiffany:  I am a SAHM of a 4 1/2 year old boy and a 1 month old girl. I am very blessed to live in San Diego and have a wonderful husband that supports my addiction! :) Beside from crafting I love to go to the beach, park and just be with my family. anything we do we have a blast together. 
I have been scrpbooking/papercrafting for almost 3 years. I love to be inspired and to insipre. I enjoy cardmaking the most since you can create a one of a kind handmade card just for the recipient. It is just so special. I also love making 12x12 layouts. I feel you can create something that can tell a hundred different stories for the one memory.

Here's a project that Tiffany created using TPBP Prodcuts.  Just click on the Trim numbers below to take you directly to the items at the shop.

Ms. Yolanda Pasillas Designing for TPBP

The Bean  is so wonderful and gracious to let me have her design for TPBP! I don't know how else to describe this lady other than inspirational!  Thank you Yolanda for allowing me to work with you and share in your spectacular journey!  

The Bean in her own words:  I've been in love with paper and ink for 17 years now! The happiness it brings me never subsides. I love trying new techniques and mediums in my art and I am always looking for new ways to teach and inspire. Besides having 7 beautiful and healthy children to encourage me to create I've made quite a few artsy friends online that share their talents freely. I hope to do the same.

Tammy Ozuna Designing for TPBP!

I am so grateful and happy to introduce Ms. Tammy!!  She not only helps medesign for TPBP, but also, assists me with projects and challenges that we are hosting every month!

Tammy in her own words:
 "I've been a creative being since the time macrame was popular. it's been a while.  Since that time I've expanded my breadth and depth of creative play and find great joy in paper crafting, art journaling, silver smithing, jewelry making, knitting and sewing, to name a few.  When I leave the creative playground I enjoy the lovely outdoors of California with a bike ride, neighborhood walk or a silent gaze at the coast line from a sandy beach. My family and friends are the heart of my world and I can never spend too much time with them."

"Determined" Father's Day Layout

Here is a layout I did of my Father.  I titled this layout "Determined," because he has been battling cancer for about 2 years now and he was born a fighter and he isn't going to stop now.  I am so proud of him.  I watch him every day through his struggle and I am his cheerleader on the sidelines.  Please make sure to take a moment to read the quote by Maya Angelou who is such an inspiration to me and her words helps to give me strength from time to time.

"I can be changed by what happens to me,
I refuse to be reduced by it."

I used DCWV paper line and lots of gear chipboard that I painted and distressed.  My new favorite is the Tim Holtz Tissue Tape which I randomly stuck throughout the layout as well as the metal gears from Oriental Trading Company and 7 Gypsies.
