Meet our Designers – Tracy Bzowy

The internet is pretty amazing. I first “met” Tracy through an online class we took took at Big Picture Scrapbooking last winter. We realized that we both lived in the province of Alberta, although several hours apart! We crossed paths again during Lain Ehmann’s Lay-Out A Day (LOAD) project in May and have since kept in touch via blog comments and emails. Needless to say I was so excited when Tracy applied for the SMS design team! I always enjoyed her layouts featuring beautiful photos of her adorable girls and heartfelt journaling. Here are the layouts she sent in with her application:
LOL - Tracy Bzowy

I love Tracy’s linear design that lets the photos and journaling take centre stage. And of course I love the bling on the letters too!

1st Visit to Disneyland - Tracy Bzowy

This high contrast red and black LO caught my eye. It’s great that Tracy did a lot of handwritten journaling to record this memorable event!

And when Tracy got her hands on our new Perpetual Calendars she used them to create this sweet layout of the special love a mom has for her children:

I Love You... - Tracy Bzowy

She also used a coordinating Artisan Bracket Journaling Spot to record her journaling, which reads: “Even on the days you girls fight like cats & dogs. I still love you both. I have since I carried you for 9+ months. The moment you were born. Everyday since. And for all the tomorrows we have together. Feb 2010 Love Mom”

Supplies used in layout: American Crafts Ribbon. Flair badge. Bazzill cardstock.
Making Memories (Pink) Letters, American Crafts Remarks (Black) Letters. Sharing Memories Calendars and Journaling Spots

Tracy also used one of our Valentine Cut-Outs as a background for the stamped sentiment on this glittery card:

And just ’cause I love it so much, here’s a close up of that over-the-top glitter. What sparkle!

Supplies used on card: Stamps by See D’s. Holographic embossing powder by Ranger. Lilac embossing powder by Sugarloaf (used inside – not shown).

Shortly after Tracy accepted a postion on our design team, she started her own blog and was able to reveal that she was asked by Stacy Julian to be a coach for this year’s Library of Memories class at BPS! This is so fitting, as I clearly remember Tracy being a supportive voice for all the participants in our class last year. Congrats Tracy! 

Before I finish up, I want to introduce you to another friend of mine. Jolene is a wonderful gal who loves to make cards and she created some using a few of our new products that I wanted to share with you:

Love how she made the X and O, used a little Felt Flower and one of our sweet, wonky Valentine Buttons.

More Felt Flowers, Valentines Buttons and a big yummy, chocolatey Embossed Heart!

Here Jolene used two of our Valentine Cut-Outs. I {heart} the one peeking out from behind that decorative border! Thanks so much for sharing these with us Jolene!

If you have created cards or layouts using our products we’d love to see them! Please email them as JPG images to
