Welcome to Feature Friday! Today we have a new round of talented guest designers! Wanda, Becky, and Lydia will be sharing projects with us each Friday this month as part of our Feature Friday series using products from our new January 2020 Release.
Here is a bit about Wanda in her own words:
Hi! I'm Wanda Guess! I live in Northern California with my dear hubs and our sweet kitty named Lucky! I blog over at A Blog Called Wanda. This year is my 25th year of stamping! I started blogging ten years ago because I wanted to be part of this amazing online community of creatives. I have met so many wonderful people through crafting. I do something creative every day, and try to find the beauty in everything around me. My first creative passion is photography. I also love to crochet and cross stitch - and drink lots of coffee! If I'm not creating, you will probably find me on Instagram, or at my favorite coffee shop. I'm so excited to be joining Concord & 9th this month to showcase their great new release!
Here is a bit about Becky in her own words:
I’ve been stamping for 18 years and blogging about stamping for 12 years at Inking Idaho. Although stamping will always be my first love, making paper purses and paper flowers run a close second. I love to create dimensional items! My style is pretty clean and simple with attention to every detail. I’m not much of a technique stamper – a little too OCD to make a big mess. I have a tiny stamping area in the alcove of our bonus room where the dog lays at my feet and the cat in the window and a view of the gorgeous mountains at the end of our street.
I started stamping with the deaf community in Sacramento 18 years ago after I lost my own hearing with the birth of our first son. I needed to find a hobby that I could enjoy without having to ‘hear’ too much instruction. A friend suggested stamping and the rest is history and the reason I use the hashtag #deafstamper on Instagram.
I have been married to George Papadopoulos for 26 years and we have two college age boys, Benjamin and Nicholas. We also have a golden retriever named Daphne and a cat named Cheeto, so basically we will never be empty nesters and that is just the way we like it!
Here is a little more about Lydia in her own words:
My name is Lydia Fiedler, and I live in Austin, Texas with my husband and two tiny feline overlords, Maddie and Splotchy. I'm employed full time as the Community Manager of Splitcoaststampers, and also do lots of freelance work in social media and marketing. I've been stamping since my early teen years, and still find more wonder and delight in paper arts every day. It's a joy to be a part of such a creative industry. I describe my style as CAQ - clean and quirky - and when I'm creating, I usually have a small black cat perched on my shoulders, and a true crime podcast playing. My favorite thing about papercrafting is that I believe it allows me to serve others in that small, magical way that only sending a handmade card to someone can do. I blog at www.understandblue.blogspot.com and I'm understandblue on Instagram, YouTube and Twitter.
