Last Stop on the SFTIO Communication Blog Hop!

Welcome to the last stop on the SFTIO Design Team blog hop!

It's been a great first few months with the addition of three wonderful designers, Diana Brodeur, Mary Jo Rhoda and Kate Vickers to the SFTIO team. Along with the talents of DT Coordinator Melissa Elsner, Nicole Martel and Jen Matott, we have assembled a group that has mad scrappy skills as well as the ability to connect the dots between emotion and design. I am loving having them aboard! Thanks, ladies!

I hope you've enjoyed the opportunity to see some of their work and get a little taste of what we do every day...inspire you to use our craft as a tool for self-discovery. It's changed my life for the better, I tell ya.

If you're starting here, or if you didn't do so before, please make sure to go back to the start of the hop HERE at Melissa's blog, jump from designer to designer and take a look at the manufacturer DTs and publications our team can boast. Although they're not boasting...I am!

In case you get lost:

  • fresh, emotion-based kits that don't look alike month after month

What an inspiring blog! Thanks so much for sharing! I am so looking forward to checking out SFTIO, after stumbling across this hop, I can hardly contain myself! LOL. My favorite way to communicate on my layouts depends on what pictures Im using...sometimes I let the picture 'talk', if that doesnt work, then I will definitely add some journalling...I dont think I have made a layout that does not have journalling on it! Thanks for the hop, it was so much fun and sooo inspiring! I wanna dig into my goodies now instead of going to bed, where I should be...lol

Great layouts, all the way through the hop! I love looking at layouts, though I'm not a scrapper. They just make me smile. I'm predominantly a card maker so my communications are often just with the images. I don't always use sentiments either.

Thanks for the great hop!

This was a fun way to go visit the DT blogs :) I loved them all.

My favorite form of communication is through pictures. I let them tell the story, and my journaling is just the set up, for the photo.

Great Hop !! You girls have some serious skills !! Thanks for sharing and a chance to win. I really loved all of the LO's.

Queen Mary said...

Ah Rachel, my favorite communication on my layouts is words. It's my forte so I should probably try harder to move out of it, but I'm a big believer in the story. This was really a great hop! Thanks so much! Very inspirational!

Chas said...

Thanks for the wonder blog hop. The girls did an amazing job on their layouts.

Andrea Amu said...

Thanks for always sharing!
I've really enjoyed this hop and seeing all the designers creations!

Communication... I suppose words are most important, however I find on my pages I like to communicate emotion first through the photos themselves.

Thanks again for sharing... it was a great hop!

I like to try and communicate as much as I can through my titles. I always try to pick titles that are really appropriate to the pictures and not generic. It's hard (especially if i'm running low on letters) but I try!
