We are SO happy to have Joan Bardee @dearpaperlicious as a guest designer for our March release. We have had a fun relationship with Joan that started back in August when we launched. Joan was among some of the first crafters to show her support to us with encouraging comments, likes on Instagram, etc. She even did an interview on her blog about Concord & 9th that you can read about HERE. We feel lucky, and honored to have Joan creating projects for us. We LOVE her clean style - such a talented, fun lady!
Here is a little bit about Joan:
Hi! I'm so happy to serve as a guest designer for Concord & 9th, one of my favorite craft companies! Thank you Angie and Greg -- you are wicked talented.
I've been stamping on and off for over 10 years. I've tried a lot of styles, but no matter how I start out, I usually end up with one or two layers and minimal embellishments.
I live in Fairfax, Virginia, outside Washington DC, with my very nice husband. I'm also a mom of one son, who flew the nest a couple of years ago. Last year, I was lucky enough to retire from my career as a lawyer. When I'm not crafting, I'm thinking about crafting, about how I should be cleaning my craft room, or about the fantastic stamping community from whom I've learned so much.
I hope you enjoy Concord & 9th as much as I do!
We just love what Joan came up with using our new Bouquet die. Very unique, out of the box uses, that turned out gorgeous! To learn more about how Joan created these, be sure to visit her fabulous blog Dear Paperlicious, and follow her other social media outlets! You will be so happy that you did!
Stunning - right?!? Great job Joan!
