RockStar_DianePayne-1Hello again! This is Paige Evans and as always, I’m so happy to be back to help everyone get to know a fellow crafter better. Today I’m spotlighting the wonderful Diane Payne!

FamilyForever_DianePayne-1Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got started crafting: I live in a suburb of Dallas with my husband, two kids, and our two dogs. I work full-time and in my spare time besides scrapping, I love photography, traveling to new places, and working on fun DIY crafty projects around the house. I started scrapbooking shortly after we were married when I put together a honeymoon album, but didn’t become fully addicted until I had kids. I’m fortunate to be on several design teams and love to share my work with others.

Favorite thing to create: My favorite subjects are my kids and husband but I love scrapping my travel adventures, too.

What do you love about scrapbooking/cardmaking? I love the creative process of scrapbooking. Not only am I inspired by photos and stories, but I can be equally inspired by scrapbooking products.

5 fun facts about yourself:
1. I’ve recently started reading again and have set a goal to read 25 books this year.
2. I love traveling (and do it for my job) but I equally love being at home. I often say I’m conflicted because of this.
3. I like to use lots of color on my layouts (keep scrolling and you’ll see)!
4. I’m a night owl and rarely go to bed before midnight.
5. Brussel sprouts cooked with bacon are one of my favorite foods. Everything is better with bacon!

AllYouNeedIsLove_DianePayne-1Here is the layout Diane created for this feature:

ROCK STAR by Diane Payne

I love creating with basic shapes like hearts, stars, and circles. On this layout I decided to use multi-patterned circles in a grid for a fun design. I even punched some circles out of alpha sticker sheets for a fun twist.


I love scrapping vintage family photos and true to my style I always make them bright and colorful. This one came together quickly with a grid design.


My alpha sticker supply is abundant so I like to use them to create long, mixed titles. I really think a mixed title with multiple font colors, styles, and sizes creates a fun and interesting layout.

HELLO CUTIE by Diane Payne

I used my Silhouette to cut the large circle for my photo on this layout, but my circle punches brought the rest of it together quickly. I like the fun, playful feeling of the randomly placed circles in various patterns.
