FEATURE FRIDAY: Seasonal Borders

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 them, and see what they've created using our Season of Cheer Bundle!

First up is Keren Baker @craftstampink:

Here is a little more about Keren in her own words:
I'm Keren and I've in Liverpool since I came here to University. I'm married to the very patient Steve and have 5 children and a cute black cat called Kovu ( big Disney fans in our house!). The eldest two both leave for university in a few days so it will be much quieter in our house! Any spare time I get is often spent baking, making music and reading ( not that there's much of that! ūüėČ)

I work part time in the craft industry. I'm lucky enough to write articles and prepare projects for magazines and also do some sewing and quilting related demonstrations for a company that manufactures sewing products amongst other things.

I love passing on the passion I have for papercrafting and trying to use products in different ways. I love that the papercrafting community is a worldwide one and I'm richer for having got to know some amazing crafters all around the world. It's my complete pleasure to join in with the Feature Fridays and show you some ideas with the brand new exciting Concord and 9th September release!

Here are the lovely cards Keren created!

Next up is Laurie Schmidlin @justgivemestamps:

Here is a little more about Laurie in her own words:
Hi there!  I'm Laurie and am so honored to be guest designing for Concord & 9th this month!  I live on a cattle ranch in rural Montana (an hour away from the nearest small town) with my husband and five children.  My family, my faith, and simple country living are all things that I cherish dearly.
When I am not out on horseback helping on the ranch or in my studio, you will most certainly find me with a book in one hand and a hot cuppa in the other!  We are definitely the outdoorsy type of family and are blessed enough to live at the base of the Rocky Mountains. Hiking, snow shoeing, skiing, camping, and canoeing are all things we enjoy and do as often as we can get away with!

Here are the great cards Laurie created!


And last but not least is Andreea Raghina @andreea.raghina:

Here is a little more about Andreea in her own words:
Hello! I am Andreea Raghina. I'm a Romanian HR professional, working for an American manufacturing company. I am located and work from Ploiesti, Romania or very often "out of a suitcase", as my job has me travelling internationally quite a bit. Luckily, I do enjoy travelling very much!

In my younger years, I enjoyed very much knitting and step-stitching, but card making has become the hobby of my life. My card-making journey started in 2014, as a way of relaxing after crazy busy work days. I joined the wonderful cardmakers Instagram community in 2015 (andreea.raghina) and I am having the time of my life sharing creativity with wonderful people. I am grateful for the friends I have made through our hobby.

So...there was a little hiccup in the delivery of Andreea's products...in that she hasn't received them in Romania yet. We feel terrible and wish we had more control over the mail delivery across the world! Fingers crossed she receives it in time to create for next Feature Friday!

Be sure to follow these ladies on Instragam, and click over to their blogs to learn more about these cards!

Gorgeous cards by Keren and Laurie; excited for my Seasons set to arrive so I can get some casing happening! These showcases are too lovely not to replicate! Hopefully Andreea’s products will arrive soon; we know she’ll designing something amazing!
