Today we’re thrilled to welcome Jen Chesnick. Before we show you Jen’s project, let’s get to know her a little bit more…

JenChesnickProfilePic-09182014-250WHi my name is Jen Chesnick, I go by Chez too. A long time family nickname that I married into and it just kind of took a life of its own. Currently I live in the great state of Maryland with my husband Bill, my daughter Parker and my bonus daughter Tori. I sell cheese and crackers by day for Mondelez International and by night I craft, scrapbook and obsess over Pinterest & Facebook. Not only am I a social media addict I watch almost all reality TV it’s quite ridiculous. Remember The Real World? That’s where it ALL started. When I am not cooped up in the house I like to travel, and don’t be shocked but I love to camp. As long as I have wi-fi and a power strip all is well in the world.

I started scrapbooking in 2006 after seeing one of my Mothers scrapbooks. I’ve always been a pretty crafty gal. Some of my favorite childhood memories are of making crafts in Girl Scouts and patching together random fabric pieces making clothes. Paper crafting has turned into a full on obsession.

Go Dude Layout

This photo of my daughter and my husband skateboarding is one of my very favs!  I let that be the inspiration for my page.  I use “boy themed” collections a lot even though I have a little girl.  The color schemes are some of my favorite color combinations by far.  For this layout I focused on the photo overlays and frames.  I used them as a backdrop for my embellishment clusters and then again as an overlay for my photo.


Here are some close up photos of my layout.
