Our Fathers Guest Designer is the amazingly talented Tami Brundage! (Blog: Tami Brundage | Instagram: @tamibrundage | Facebook: Butterfly Kiss Photography)
Short bio: Tami Brundage is a dreamer. Besides being a professional photographer, she enjoys finding vintage treasures, cooking healthy local food, organic gardening, the smell of fresh cut grass, road trips, running bare foot, the beach, salted caramel anything, paper crafting, and sing-a-long music. If she had to pick a theme song to her life it would be “Wildflowers” by Tom Petty. She raises a small flock of backyard chickens in the suburbs of Washington state, but would love to live on a farm someday (soon!). In the meantime she enjoys finding ways to simplify her life with her husband and two children, Avery and Sawyer.
How did you get started scrapbooking? I have been scrapbooking in some form since high school, but after my daughter was born I came across Studio Calico on a photography blog and dived head first back in!
What is your favorite American Crafts product? Hands down it is Thickers! I just love all the different textures and fonts they come in and the dimension they add to my projects.
FATHERS DAY 13 by Tami Brundage
I chose bright colors, including pink, to peek out behind this picture of my husband and son. Its ok to use more feminine colors for a layout about dad, especially if it fits the mood of the photo or story you are scrapbooking.

I LOVE YOU MORE THAN ICE CREAM CARD by Tami Brundage
Cut out journal card papers work great for making simple cards! Just sew down to a card base, add a title and viola!

CAMPERS by Tami Brundage
To create this layout I alternated pennant banner flags to cover my background and painted on some white gesso before sewing down to my cardstock. I accented my design with patterned paper that had colors pulled from the picture.
