Hi Everyone! My name is Angie Gutshall and I’m from a small town in Central Pennsylvania. I have a fun family of 2 sweet girls and 3 awesome boys! I am also married to my high school sweetheart of 14 years! Scrapbooking for me is capturing our everyday moments on paper so my kids will have something to treasure when they get older. I started scrapbooking when my oldest was born, 9 years ago. I would say my style is clean & simple but with a shabby chic look too. I love to use mist/paint and stitching. And I prefer to hand write most of my journaling so that it is more personable for my kids. I love teaching this art since I feel it is such a great way to preserve memories. I also enjoy making canvas cards and other altered item. I love to inspire others and hope I have inspired you with what I have created!
Angie’s projects featuring The Switchboard Collection:
#9 Today Layout: This layout is about my oldest turning nine. I LOVE those chipboard frames from the chipboard sticker set and I knew I wanted to work this layout around those frames. This line has so many fun elements from flowers, to arrows, to hearts – it was so fun to mix all the bits into 1 page!

Waiting Layout: I really love how this layout turned out. It is a fun reminder of the daily excitement of waiting for my hubby to call. We love to chat in the mornings! My favorite item is the cute number chipboard pieces, I love how well they accented the theme of this layout.

Girl Talk Layout: For this project I simply cut out some hearts on my Cameo and layered them on top of each other to create dimension! Then I stitched them together and adhered them to my page. I love the layered look the hearts give to this layout. I also love the conversation bubbles in this collection; they are so cute and add some fun to the topic of the page.

Altered Family Window Frame: I had this old window that needed a little redo. I took some twine and strung it through the window like a banner. Then I started to add all the little embellishments, pictures, paper banners, etc from the puffy stickers, ephemera and the papers. I love how this collection made my old window look fresh and new. I even added the number 5 from the alpha set to reflect my 5 kids. Super sweet.

Address Book: The address book patterned paper in this collection was perfect for creating a little address book for my daughter. She is always asking me for her friends numbers so I thought this would be perfect for her to add her friends and have their numbers when she needed. I just cut the labels out and adhered them into the book. Then added some embellishments! Super quick and easy.
