CASE Study Challenge #177

Are you ready to rock another month, you guys?? Heck yeah, we are!
It's with immense pleasure that we're announcing our brand new and ultra talented Muse, Danielle Flanders! Take it away, Danielle...

Hello! My name is Danielle Flanders. I'm a former K-8th grade elementary teacher turned stay-at-home-mom to two daughters. I also have a BS in Speech Pathology and Audiology. I've been crafting and making things ever since I was little and have always been "into" art of all sorts, drawing, painting, quilting, woodworking. When my first daughter was born, I began scrapbooking to make a baby book for her. That is when my love of paper crafting began, 14 years ago! I'm passionate for color and pattern.
Since then, I think I've really come into my own and found the style I'm drawn to the most. I think I'd call it, "Fresh Vintage" or "Modern Whimsy". You see, all things vintage and pretty capture my heart. With two girls, we love everything girly in our house! However, I love to add a modern twist with brighter, lighter colors and a happy, clean feel to update the vintage look (if that makes any sense). I love to layer. I love to try new things. I feel driven to be creative with the products and design new uses for them -- and do things that others wouldn't think of!
I'm so grateful and thrilled to have had my work in hundreds of scrapbooking publications. I also have my own eBook with Big Picture Classes and have been a contributor to many other eBooks and idea books. I love blogging and sharing my creativity with's certainly a passion of mine! Visit me:
