Meet this month's Guest Designers!

Hello, Friends!

This month we were lucky enough to have two guest designers who wanted to work with us! One you've seen a lot of as our Guest Designer, one who is new to the process.

Kim requested a stamp set from a certain fandom, and when we wanted a guest designer for that stamp set we randomly chose her to work with it!

My mother-in-law introduced me to card making over a decade ago. It was easy to be inspired by her enthusiasm and generosity. When our daughter was born, I chose to stay home with her but still needed to find a way to help make ends meet. I turned to online sales, which included some of my handmade crafts. It turns out, working for myself at home helps keep the electricity on while I get to enjoy a strict dress policy of leggings all day! It does take some work ethic, but I’m well- suited to the dual lifestyle of working and momming. While I enjoy many aspects of and techniques with papercrafting, my favorite cards create scenes to tell a story and are heavily based in humor (or what I find humorous, anyway). I try to craft cards for audiences who are perhaps underrepresented in the retail world. I live and work in New Hampshire with my husband, daughter, two cats, six goldfish, and a spoiled, one-eyed house rabbit who steals paper scraps even if she knows you’re looking.

And of course, you ALL probably remember Lois! We love to use Lois anytime we have a specific fandom we're working with, and we like to think she's pretty happy with the situation too. ;)

I’m a retired bookkeeper who discovered the world of rubber stamping about 13 years ago.  A crafter much of my life, I had gone through the gamut of arts and crafts – embroidery, counted cross stitch, macramé, ceramics – but that all stopped after I attended a stamping party at my friend’s.  As the saying goes: the rest is history – stamping became my passion. I love to color and would make a great first grader! I have been on several design teams in the past and am currently a member of two company teams and one challenge team – including a couple of guest designer gigs with Kindred Stamps.  I enjoy using different techniques on my cards, both clean-and-simple ones as well as more involved creations. A widow of 15 years, I have three grown children and eight grandchildren.
