Crafter Spotlight

Hello all! It's Sunday and another day of Crafter Spotlight! Today we have a scrapbooker who really caught our eye with her two pages. She just has a knack for creating some really fun and creative pages. Her name is Cari and let's get to know her better!

Cari Orellana

Hello everyone, I'm Cari, I'm 26 years old, living with my husband and cat in Chile. I'm a part time translator and Spanish teacher for foreigners, It's a very fun job and it's given me the opportunity to meet people from all over the globe.
I've been a crafter my whole life, I learn how to embroidery and knitting very young and until some years ago crochet was my thing. It was in 2010 when I discovered Scrapbooking and haven't stopped since then. I love this hobby because it's fast, I don't need many time to finish a layout and because what you get is beautiful, the perfect "frame" for your photos.

"It Wasn't Logic, It Was Love" Layout

"As far as I received Date Night I knew I wanted to use it with some of my wedding photos. For this layout I divided my page in two parts, one half with design and the second half on white. I cut some phrases - I love the " I say yes" one, so perfect for the occasion-, and a little of fussy cutting, I love how that flowers look, they are the perfect embellishment!"


"Just 1 Day" Layout

"This photo is from the day before my wedding, that's why the name of it. I cut a cloudy background because that night was very cloudy and I thought it was going to rain next day - the worst nightmare for an outdoors wedding - But luckily nothing happened and my wedding day was a very sunny day. To fill the cloud I used papers from Date Night and I cut those little flags to embellish the clouds."
Thanks so much Cari for letting us put you in the spotlight!
