We are thrilled to introduce you to Diane Payne, a very talented scrapbooker who toggles between 12×12 and 8.5×11 pages. We love the assortment she created using Tea Garden, and her spin on this collection gave it such a contemporary look! She’s a fan of white cardstock and all of her pages look so fresh and clean. BG fans, please meet Diane:
I grew up in a small town in Illinois and married the new kid on the block that moved to our town in 6th grade. We now reside in Texas with our two teenage kids.
In addition to being a wife and mom, I am a flight attendant, a scrapbooker, a fan of all crafty things, and an avid photographer. I love traveling, drinking coffee and hanging out with my family.
I’ve been scrapbooking since I’ve been married but really got into scrapbooking, as we know it today, when my kids were born. I love creating colorful whimsical layouts with typed journaling and machine stitching.
In addition to the endless supply of photos to scrap of my kiddos I have been blessed with a large collection of vintage photos that frequently make an appearance on my layouts. Since I started scrapbooking I’ve been fortunate to be on a number of design teams and published in numerous magazines.
