CKC Master Forgers Team Activity: Guess My Scrap Crush!

We are doing a little team building activity among the Master Forgers over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog.  Lisa, our lovely coordinator has asked us to choose a scrapbook celeb, one that we may just have a crush on, and create a layout based on her style.   (I use the pronoun her since other than Tim Holtz, I can't think of any other male scrapbook celebrities!)  We are including you in our little exercise by asking you to guess who you think our scrap crushes could be.  Keep reading and I'll give you all the deets!

Here's how it works.  I'll give you some clues and show you my layout based on this person's style to help you formulate your educated scrappy guess.  You already know it is NOT Tim Holtz, so you can check him off the list!  Leave your guess in the comments section below and then hop on to my fellow Master Forgers' blogs to check out who their secret admirers might be.  Find the answers on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog on Tuesday, April 21st.

Here are some clues to get the gears turning in your brain:
  • I first "met" my crush through Lain Ehmann's True Scrap event.
  • I often watch her You Tube channel videos while folding laundry.
  • I find her style to be closely related to mine.  Carefully selected embellishments and papers that directly support the story she is telling.
  • Her design style is neat and organized.  Some layering of papers and clustering of embellishments.
  • She once worked in a garden.
  • She often uses banners or pennants that are wrapped in crochet thread or twine.
  • Her buttons almost always have a crochet thread bow.
  • Unlike me, she often computer generates her journaling.
  • She often scraps portrait-type photos/up-close faces.
So, here is the layout that represents my Scrap Crush:

Hmmmm....who could it be?  Put your guess in the comments section below and then hop along to Margie's blog!

Lynnette  YOU ARE HERE!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. What a perfectly lovely page! And that sweet close up of Gracie and Grace is just too sweet. I like how you've described you know who!!! Nice list and perfectly summed up. You're right, you tick a lot off that list and have made a wonderful page which could easily be one of hers! Nice! Thanks for playing along today :-)

  2. Wow, that is a tricky one! I am going to guess Jennifer Gallacher? Lovely page!

  3. Jen Gallacher. The banners wrapper in twine and computer journaling gave it away for me. You did an awesome job interpreting her style! Your embellishments are so beautifully supportive of your theme.

  4. I have no idea. I must be out of the loop of SB superstars. I love your page though with the orange, teal and brown color combo.

  5. You know me - the clueless almost-senior citizen oblivious to the scrappy movers & shakers =8~}
    I adore this page! the doilies, the background paper, la Tour Eiffel... sigh... and that amazing shot of G & G :)

  6. I can definitely see the Jennifer Gallacher style on this though I might be wrong. Love the whole thing Lynette,especially Gracie!

  7. I'll say Jen Gallacher too. There's a certain tidiness and order to your layout - just the right embellishments, very neatly and precisely placed. It's a beautiful layout Lynnette, no matter who your inspiration!

  8. I would say Jen Gallacher too. She was a garden girl I think.

  9. Lovely page, clueless as to who?

  10. This page is so pretty! The way that you used the doilies is fantastic with their arrangement and decor! I didn't know or remember Jennifer Gallacher, but I sure like your style! Your use of color is always terrific with a wonderful touch of embellishments that seems just right every time!
