Meet Beatriz Jennings

We're thrilled to have Beatriz Jennings with us for June! If you've ever seen the beautiful publication Cards, you've seen the wonderful creations Beatriz gets published. Check out her blog, iralamija, and make sure to welcome her on this thread for a chance to win her favorite things that she hand-picked for one lucky winner. See details at the bottom of this post.

Meet Beatriz:

Hi, my name is Beatriz Jennings, (Bety). I'm an Interior Designer. I am from Mexico, but I now live in the USA, with my husband and our son. I fell in love with scrapbooking when I was looking through a magazine and saw all of the beautiful things that you can do with paper. Right now I'm in love with card making and altered art. I have been scrapbooking for 3 years and I love to use ribbon, buttons and flowers on most of my creations. I don't know how to describe my style, but some people say that it is a little bit romantic, feminine, and even shabby.

Some of my work has been published in magazines like Handmade (formerly Paper Trends), Scrapbook Trends, Cards, Paper Crafts, Scrapbook and Cards Today and Cardmaker magazine to list a few. I have also had projects published in idea books and had tutorials and projects published online on scrapbooking/papercrafting sites and some e-zines.
