Video Tutorial by Erica Houghton {Design Team "Moment To Shine}






Hi everyone & welcome back to another tutorial 
from our Design Team "Moment To Shine" series.

Today we have a video tutorial by Design Team member
 Erica Houghton, from the USA using our current challenge here.


Erica created this beautiful layout  based on the mood board
 below & will share her creative process with us in her video.


Let's get to know a little about Erica.


Hi!  My name is Erica Houghton.  
My husband Ben & I live outside of Washington DC in Stone Ridge, Virginia.  
When I'm not working or sitting in traffic you can find me in my studio creating, 
curled up with a good book, headed out the door for a run, or sightseeing & traveling!

My paper crafting is shabby chic - I  love glitter, rhinestones & anything that has glitz, 
glamour & a LOT of sparkle!   AND I'm totally addicted to patterned paper.  
I never feel my pages are complete until I've added flowers, ribbon & machine stitching. 

 I enjoy creating a variety of projects including layouts,
 cards, tags, Off-The-Page products & mini albums.

In addition to creating for various design teams I also enjoy teaching classes at local
scrap stores,  because I love sharing my passion for paper crafting with others.  
To see all of my creations please visit my blog here.
