Please Welcome Our June Guest Designer!

Tomorrow morning we'll be unveiling our first June challenge, so today we'd like for you to join us in welcoming our June guest designer, the talented April Watkins!

Hello! My name is April Watkins, and I have been a Close to My Heart Consultant for about a year and a half. I currently live in Strongsville, OH, which is a suburb of Cleveland. My husband Thomas is Active Duty with the United States Coast Guard, so we am both from everywhere and nowhere at the same time. I have a Master's Degree in Library Science, and have worked as a public librarian in the past. I am currently taking time off to stay home with my adorable 2-year-old son James. I have been papercrafting since high school, but I've really become more serious about it the past five years after my husband bought me my first Cricut machine. I absolutely love CTMH products, especially the Artbooking and Art Philosophy Cricut cartridges. My artwork generally features lots of layers and heavy with embellishments, which pairs nicely with these cartridges and the coordinating stamp sets.
