January Guest Designer - Michelle McClure


Hello fellow scrappers out in cyber space! This is Michelle McClure sending warm greetings your way from Southern California. I'm here with my husband and two dogs in our 5 second, one take Christmas photo (that is all they can stand before scampering off). I teach 3rd grade and my husband teaches high school physics in the same district, so 10 years later he gets some of my former students. He'll be featured in some of my work (heehee). 

Besides spending time with my family, I also enjoy playing volleyball, watching figure skating and trying my hand at all kinds of crafts. I like learning new things, but if I feel I'm plateauing, I lose interest. Scrapbooking is the only hobby that piques my interest because there are always new products and techniques on the horizon and I feel I can keep growing as a scrapper. 

I like to document travel and activity photos which lends itself to multi-photo double pagers, which is why I am such a fan of Allison's sketches. I find I can't do an artistic page with only one photo, it seems like it is taking up valuable space in an album, when so many photos can occupy the same space. 

Thanks for indulging me with your time.


Michelle has produced some wonderful projects for the month of January that we are very enthusiastic to show along with our Creative Team creations. She is going to be a great addition to the exciting first month of Sketch Support.

I am brand new to these sketches and I was on the hunt for a great challenge sketch site to join! Love the diversity in these sketches (I have a fear of the double LO that I want to over come I have found the place to hang my hat!

So looking forward to getting to know the team and members!

Congratulations on the Guest Designer spot! I totally agree with you....I'm a multi photo, per page scrapper too. I find I don't have enough $$$ to be an artistic scrapper! LOL :)

Congratulations Michelle! I've seen your stuff on 2 Peas and can hardly wait to see what you do this month. Nice dogs (I've got three of 'em ... Ruff, Tuck and Syd. That's my name on 2 Peas!), but I can't get them to sit still for 5 seconds!
