Taheerah is back!

Taheerah is back sharing more goodness with our March new release products! If you missed her first post with us, click HERE to learn more about Taheerah and see a cool neon sign card she made using our Lucky Bundle!

For today's projects, Taheerah has used our Fill-In Phrases Bundle, which is our Fill-In Phrases stamp set, Floral Fill-In stencils and Floral Fill-in patterned paper. In this first photo you can see that she used the stencil to fill in the flowers with ink. The detailed layer of the stencil is with Nuvo Glimmer Paste (which we have yet to try) - yummy! Love this color combo!

The patterned papers are two-sided. One side is to use with the stencil, and the other side is to use as a regular patterned paper. This next project shows the gold embossed sentiment right over the polka dot pattern. So fun!

What a fun, stylish photo this is! Be sure to PIN it, and share it!
Now, hop over to Taheerah's blog, Taheerah Atchia Designer. Blogger. Geek. to learn more about these projects, and follow her fun Instagram too @taheerah_atchia.
You'll be glad you did!

Taheerah will be back with more goodies soon!

Ilina is back!

 We're thrilled to have Ilina back with us! This time she is using our Lily stamp set along with our Faith & Love stamp set, and it's gorgeous!  These cards are great for all occasion and to send in times of support.

The first card uses the lily image in a beautifully graphic way. She's used a monochromatic color palette of black and white with little pops of yellow to bring out the lifelike quality of the flower. Her subtle shading using Copic markers really brings out the dimension of each petal. 

Her next card is a stunner! The gradation on those flower petals is outstanding! She used ZIG brush markers to create the seamless shading on watercolor paper. Ilina is a pro at coloring flowers. We absolutely LOVE what she has done with these sets!

To see more details on these gorgeous cards, hop over to Ilina’s blog, Creativity Within. Be sure to follow her there, and on her Instagram account @ilinacrouse. Can't wait to see what she does next! Thank you, Ilina!

Kelly Griglione is back with us today! This time she is sharing lots of projects she created wtih our Faith & Love Bundle: Faith & Love stamp set and Lily stamp set. If you missed Kelly's introduction post, you need to click HERE to see the fun Lucky Bundle projects she created and to learn more about Kelly!

Look how pretty these Lily cards are! In these first two cards, Kelly has paired Lily, Faith & Love and another stamp set from our March release products - can you guess which one? It's our You Are Here stamp set for the word 'prayers'.

In this next one she has a beautiful, subtle blue background which really makes the pretty Lily's pop!

When Kelly was sending her projects over to me, she said she made so many because she just couldn't stop stamping with Faith & Love. We LOVE hearing that! So, here are many more! We love seeing many different cards with one stamp set!!!

And here is the full haul of what Kelly made! WOW! She was busy!

 What a great, PINable shot! :)

Welcome Taheerah!

Please help us welcome Taheerah Atchia! We were lucky enough to meet Taheerah in person at CHA/Creativation in January. She is adorable - and so are all her shoes!! She agreed to guest design with us then, so she will be using our March new release products.


Here is a little more about Taheerah in her own words:

Hi! I’m Taheerah. I’m a geek. And I like to make stuff.

I live in the UK with my wonderful cats, and I work in IT, building and testing software. I’m a scientist at heart (I have a degree in Astrophysics), but I’ve always also been creative. I like to balance all the technical, thinking work I do in my day job with doing something with my hands, which is where crafting comes in! I love combining designs/products in think-outside-the-box ways, as well as mixing it up with a varied style and capitalising on the latest trends. I'd love it if you stopped by my site and learned more about me!

Today Taheerah is sharing projects she has made using our Lucky Bundle. How fabulous is it that she made it look like a neon sign?!?

And, how cool is this photo backdrop she has put it on? It feels so nostalgic! 

Pretty sure we all need to hop over to Taheera's blog right now to find out how she did this! Follow me there...Taheerah Atchia - Designer. Blogger. Geek.

Taheerah will be back with us more this month so keep an eye out! Be sure to follow her blog, Taheerah Atchia - Designer. Blogger. Geek, and her fun Instagram feed @taheerah_atchia.

Welcome Dedra!


Please help us welcome Dedra Long as a talented faith-crafting friend! Today she is showcasing a bible page layout she has made using our Faith & Love Bundle. First, here is more about Dedra:

Hi there, my name is Dedra Long and I live in Gilbert, Arizona with my husband and two daughters. I started traditional scrapbooking in 1996 after the birth of our first daughter. Since then I have been on many design teams, had my worked published many times and have met some of the most AMAZING people which have become friends. 

The last couple of years I have been “creatively planning,” (I have had a traditional planner since high school). Now, I like to make my planners not only be functional but beautiful and stylish as well. 
About a year ago I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer (my third type of cancer since the age of 26). This last year has been a journey, filled with ups and downs, medications, fear and all of the emotions in between. Needless to say, I started to dig deeper in my relationship with God. Illustrated Faith inspired me to start the creative journey in my journaling bible. 
I have realized it doesn’t matter if you are a scrapbooker, a planner girl, a journaling bible fanatic, a card maker, pocket page lover and everything in between, you can use all of the same supplies across each creative platform. I will use stamp sets and supplies in my faith planner, then in my journaling bible and beyond.  
Wishing you health and happiness friends!! 

Dedra has not only used our Faith & Love stamp set, but paired it with our Flourish stamp set and our All Year Long stamp set. This layout is fabulous! It just goes to show that you can use any kind of stamp in your bible journaling!

Dedra will be back with us more this month! In the meantime, be sure to follow her blog, Dedra Long Designs, and her beautiful Instagram @dedralong for lots of bible art journaling and planner inspiration!
