FEATURE FRIDAY: LOVELY LATTICE TURNABOUT™ & HEY GIRL DIES

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.

Read on to learn more about this months guests, and to see what they've created using our new Lovely Lattice Turnabout™ and Hey Girl dies

 

FIRST UP IS WANDA GUESS  @STAMPCATWG:

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!

 

 

NEXT UP IS BECKY ROBERTS @INKINGIDAHO:

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!

LAST BUT NOT LEAST LYDIA FIEDLER @UNDERSTANDBLUE:

 

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.

Welcome to the first Feature Friday in December! We are so excited to introduce you to Kelly, Jaycee, and our mother and son team, Rebecca & Teddy! They will be sharing projects with us each Friday this month as part of our Feature Friday series using products from our new December 2019 release!

FIRST UP, KELLY LUNCEFORD!  @kellylunceford

Here is a bit about Kelly in her own words:

My name is Kelly Lunceford and I live in Utah with my husband and our 5 spunky and active children! While I'm not busy with this bunch, I enjoy papercrafting and being creative in general! There have been times when my ability to do this has ebbed and flowed, and right now it is FLOWING! It has been so fun to share my passion for papercrafting in so many different formats and I'm certainly excited for this opportunity!

HERE ARE KELLY'S AMAZING PROJECTS:

NEXT, WE HAVE JAYCEE GASPAR!  @jaycee.gaspar

Here is a bit about Jaycee in his own words:

Hi everyone!  My name is Jaycee Gaspar and I am a full-time Medical Laboratory Scientist from Colorado.  When I am not in the lab, I spend most of my time creating handmade cards for Instagram, my blog, and YouTube.  I have always been passionate about art and science; so my favorite sources of inspiration are street art, botanical illustrations, geometric shapes, and astronomy.  The card making and stamping community is amazingly supportive, and I'm so glad to have found a social crafty niche that challenges my creative bounds.  If I'm not crafting, I enjoy doing fun runs and getting out into the Colorado atmosphere.

HERE ARE JAYCEE'S INCREDIBLE PROJECTS:

LAST, BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST, IS REBECCA & TEDDY EDNIE! @beccreates1

Here is a bit about Rebecca & Teddy in her words:
I’m a stay at home mom and former RN. Teddy is almost 8 and in grade 2. We live in a quiet little town in Southern Ontario, Canada with my husband, 2 other sons and an old, much-loved tabby cat. Teddy is autistic and has ADHD and I have health and mobility issues but we find crafting gives us an outlet and helps us cope. Teddy has his own desk in my craft room along with a cubby and drawer with his own paper l, adhesive and other supplies. And, of course, I share my stamps and dies with him. Teddy especially loves to make cards for his Nana and me. He tries to fool me by saying they are for someone else until he is finished. He even asks me to write out the inside for him to copy but changes the name to Mama. We are thrilled to combine our efforts to create projects for C9 this month.

 

We are SO impressed with this talented duo, and love what crafting means to them!

HERE ARE REBECCA & TEDDY'S LOVELY PROJECTS:

Read on to learn more about this months guests, and to see what they've created using our new Kindness Blooms Bundle and Tall Type Bundle!

FIRST UP IS CHARI MOSS  @charimoss:

Here is a bit about Chari in her own words:
Hi, my name is Chari Moss and I live in beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina (where I have lived all my life). I have always been creative, even as a kid, and I found my love of stamping at a very young age.  I am an architect by day so I love clean and graphic design but I also love bright and happy colors too. When I’m not crafting or working my husband and I like going to the movies, explore the mountains and travel when we can. I also love LEGO, collecting enamel pins, drinking coffee, all the rainbows, anything Disney and the most colorful time of the year, Autumn. I’m excited to be a guest with Concord & 9th this month. I am a big fan of their designs and look forward to creating and sharing the newest release with you!

Here is a bit about Channin in her own words:
Hello! I’m Channin Pelletier and I live in sunny Arizona with my husband and our two sweet daughters. I’m a long time stamper and papercrafter. I actually started back in junior high with carving my own stamps from erasers for creating handmade cards and scrapbook pages. My current crafty obsession is definitely cardmaking!! It’s difficult for me to nail down my style, I’m bit of chameleon! I love clean and simple designs, coloring critters and flowers, and even constructing interactive cards! But overall I love trying to come up with designs that are unique or unexpected!

I’d love it if you checked out my youtube channel at youtube.com/c/ChanninPelletier

Laurafadora here and I'm so excited to be guesting with Concord & 9th this month. I am a wife & mother to five busy kids, currently living in Germany and eating all the breads, pommes and chocolates. When I'm not card making you can find me either at Aldi, in the laundry room or at the hockey rink. I'm also currently addicted to Mad Men on Netflix.
