Design is a passion we all share. But when it comes to style, we’re as diverse as can be, ranging from traditional to modern and clean to complex. Today, meet one of our designers, Christy Tomlinson as she takes us into the Cheeky side of her design style and life.
People that know me know I can be pretty crazy and fun—even with six kids. Part of that craziness converts over into my home decor as well. I love mixing colors, patterns and textures throughout my home. I love finding cool art and accents that add unique touches to each room. I have a very eclectic style and love mixing vintage, modern, and classic looks to create my own unique urban feel.
This carries over into my scrapbooking as well. I love mixing textures and finding fun new color combos. I love using different mediums such as paints, stitching, and even fabric or textured papers on my layouts. I have always enjoyed mixing different patterns and color to create my own unique combinations on my pages. Sometimes I go for a more "clean" look, but usually always have to add a little bit of something out of the ordinary to make it me!
Info on layout: I decided to mix it up a bit and use the Cheeky paper with the Vintage Hip paper (and added a little black to spice it up even more). Cheeky is a very modern line where Vintage Hip is very, well, vintage—but I love how it worked so well together! I carried that theme throughout the layout by mixing vintage flowers with Cheeky sleek chipboard flowers and painted letters with glittery stickers. My best friend, Liz, and I are so much like these two lines. She is very Vintage/classic and I am more modern when it comes to fashion, jewelry and even home décor. I love how this layout really represented us both by mixing it up to create the perfect page. --Christy
