Please join me in welcoming our Guest Designer for October - Kristina Proffitt! You may know Kristina from her blog: one happy mama! Kristina has created fun holiday designs with our newest stamps and I am excited to share them with you.
But first, I'll let Kristina tell you a little about herself:
Hi there! My name is Kristina Proffitt. I’m from Nashville, Tennessee and I’m SUPER excited to be this month’s guest designer! Let’s see … a little about myself … I’m 32-years-old, married to my best friend for 8 years (this month), I have a sweet daughter who will be turning 5 next month and a little boy who is due in a few weeks! I also have a sweet dog named Maggie. I love any and all things crafty. That includes, of course, stamping, card making, scrapbooking, photography, writing and blog design. I’m a pretty simple gal – love simple design, every day photographs, shopping on Etsy.com, doodling and jotting down memories.
I got into stamping probably about 5 years ago, but only dabbled in it here and there at that time. I was more of a stamp “collector.” In the past couple of years, I have pulled out those stamps and had so much fun stamping. I love to use stamps on scrapbook pages as well. Inking up a stamp is therapeutic and so much fun. I wish I had gotten serious about stamping sooner but I am just thankful that I dusted off those stamps and started to enjoy them and not just collect them.
I want to thank A Muse for this wonderful opportunity!
And now.. her cards! Kristina used some of our gorgeous shimmer paper on each of today's designs! It is difficult to capture the shimmer on camera, but if you own this paper then you know how pretty it is!
Kristina paper pieced the owl so that he "pops"! And black twinkle stickers were the perfect accent on his eyes. Kristina use our classic alphabet to create the words and also added a handwritten "the" at the top.
On this next design Kristina used Papaya shimmer damask paper along with pink solid for the cardbase. And the snowflakes are punched out of ocean shimmer and each have a white pearl in the center!
Kristina used more pink shimmer paper on the last design today. Lots of twinkle stickers are perfect as ornaments on the tree!
I hope you enjoyed Kristina's shimmer designs! I'll be back next week with more holiday cards and a scrapbook layout! And now... it's giveaway time! We asked Kristina to choose a stamp and pack of notecards to share with three lucky winners. What did she choose? Stay tuned to find out - we'll reveal the prize in one of her upcoming posts! To enter for a chance to win, just leave a comment on this, and on each of the upcoming Guest Designer posts featuring Kristina's designs! (one comment per post please)
