Editors’ Picks: Favorite Guest Bloggers of 2010

Here at CK, we can’t wrap up the year without saying thanks to all the talented guest bloggers of 2010 who shared their inspiring ideas with you our blog readers! 

The year was chock-full of great guest posts, starting with Dream Team member Suzy Plantamura motivating you to pull out those markers and use them to add a bit of creativity to your craft projects.

Want to create a layout using markers like Suzy did below? Check out Suzy’s tips, including how to color your own acrylic accents.

Markers are also a perfect way to embrace your inner child and express creativity. Suzy’s list of favorite pens (and what she uses them for) can get you started!

Also in 2010, Angela Magnuson, owner and operator of Unity Stamp Company, gave some sweet and simple stamping suggestions. Angela shared how to create her tug-at-your-heartstrings layout below that only takes minutes to complete.

Jennifer McGuire‘s “Unforgettable Moment” layout was truly unforgettable with its unique inking technique. Jennifer’s step-by-step video detailed how to create the cool color effect used for her floral background.

Studio Calico‘s April Foster was another 2010 blogger, sharing some of her memory keeping secrets. Using part documenting, part play, her layout implemented negative die-cut images.


Want to do the same? April’s post will show you how to experiment on your pages using her fun technique. 

Jodi Sanford, owner and founder of Fancy Pants Designs, taught how to make every day a celebration using the new “It’s Your Day” product line. Her page reminded us that some of the smallest items make the greatest impact.

We neared the end of 2010 with CK‘s 12 Days of Scrapbooking Giveaways. Among several special guest bloggers was Dream Team member Joey Manwarren, who provided a cheat sheet for your camera bags on how to shoot a blurry background effect called bokeh.

We hope all our 2010 guest bloggers inspired you with fresh ways to scrapbook your year’s adventures – as well as those you embark on in 2011!
