FEATURE FRIDAY: Christmas Cheer

It's FEATURE FRIDAY and today we have a new round of guest designers to introduce to you! You get to learn a bit about Natasha, Meghan & Norine, and see what they've created using our October new release products all month long (and in to November!). The first projects they are share with us use our new Christmas Cheer Bundle!

First up is Natasha Valkovskaya @craftawaywithme:

Here is a little more about Natasha in her own words:
I'm a 40-year old mother of two, married to my university sweetheart, a teacher of English and a teacher trainer by day and a crafter by night. I'm form Yekateringburg, a city in Russia. I've always been crafty, but got bitten by a cardmaking bug a couple years ago when I watched Kristina Werner's video on YouTube. I'm mostly a Clean and Simple carmaker, but I like to get artsy occasionally and have been learning my ways  with watercolour recently. One of my favourite parts about crafting and cardmaking is an amazing community that brings people from all over the world together and makes it a bit better one card at a time.

Next up is Meghan Peterson @periwinklestudio:

Here is a little more about Meghan in her own words:
Hi, my name is Meghan Peterson and I'm so excited to be a Guest Designer for this Concord and 9th release! I've been making cards since I was 3 years old and would deliver them to my friends and family. But it wasn't until junior high that I started buying actual card making supplies, and then when I discovered this community last year, I absolutely fell in love and I think my skills increased exponentially. I'm a 90's baby born and raised in southern California to great parents, and just moved to Oregon where my boyfriend is going to law school. I love all animals, and have 2 cats back in California and hope someday to have a yard big enough to have a dog! My favorite drink is a chai latte, my favorite things to shop for are clothes, make-up and art supplies, and my favorite quote is "Have Courage and Be Kind".

And last but not least is Norine Borys @norinehope:

Here is a little more about Norine in her own words:
Hi, I’m Norine and I’m delighted, excited and honored to be a guest at Concord & 9th this month!  I’m a Canadian living year round in Arizona (except for a couple of hot months when we vacate to the lake in Canada).  I’ve been crafting since 1st grade when I declared “cutting” and “gluing” to be my favorite subjects in school.  My creative interests include fiber and needle arts, painting (any kind, even fences), ANYthing to do with paper, cake and cookie decorating and any other shiny new craft that crosses my path.  There just aren’t enough hours in a day!  I have served on a number and variety of design teams over the past years, and love to teach, both children and adults.

I’ve been married 36 years (to the SAME man!?!), raised 4 children and just this year we received our first GRANDchild!!  All the cliches are true!  Our children are all spread throughout Canada and the US but happily they all live in places that get snow in winter, so we provide the “tropical” destination they all need sometime between Dec and May!

I’m really glad to be here and am so pleased to help showcase the wonderful new products that Concord & 9th is releasing this month!

How fun are their projects?? Did it get you in to the holiday crafting spirit? Be sure to start following these ladies' Instagram feeds and blogs, where they will share more details on their cards, and you can follow all their crafty goodness!
