Check It Out! #1 - Scrappin Cookie

I am going to start something new and fun at My Craft Spot!
 I love to find new blogs that inspire me and I know you do to!  Sooo . . . I thought I would share as I come across different blogs or projects that I find amazing!  
 I think I will call it "Check it out!" unless any of you want to email me a better name for this new feature! (which I would appreciate)  I have a hard time coming up with fun names for things.  :)  

Today's spotlighted blog is
 I love Marlene's style!
Here are a couple of my favorite cards/projects from her blog:
This is just darling!  Marlene designed this .cut file (available on her blog!) using the Plantin School book cartridge. 

I love how Marlene used the Petal Pink Crinkle Ribbon on this card!  Beautiful!

Meet Marlene - the creative talent behind Scrappin Cookie!

Hi, my name is Marlene. I’m 27 years old, have been married for 8 years and have two wonderful little boys. I fell in love with papercrafting when I was pregnant with my first son and saw all of the beautiful things that could be done - its been 6 years since then!  I love my Cricut Expression and Design Studio. I use them for almost EVERY project; together they have expanded my creativity level. Along with them, I love to use sketches, chipboard, inks, bling – stickles & pearls, my Signo White Pen, digital sentiments, and lots of layers on most of my creations. However, if I had to describe my crafting sytle, I'd say its Simple & Clean. Papercrafting has not only provided me with a creative outlet but also a way to find tranquilty and great satisfaction when I see my projects come to life. I enjoy sharing all my work with everyone thru my blog, ScrappinCookie.

Be sure to check out Marlene's blog - you will be amazed!

Have a super day!
