FEATURE FRIDAY with NEW Guests: Cozy Christmas, Snow Flurry, Snowflake Turnabout™

Happy Friday! Today we have a new group of talented ladies guesting with us this month! Jana Millen, Angelica Conrad and Jessica McAfee will be featuring different products from our September HOLIDAY release each Friday this month!

In this post you'll get to know more about each of these talented designers, and see projects they've made using our Cozy Christmas Bundle, Snow Flurry Bundle and Snowflake Turnabout™ stamp set! Get ready...they are gorgeous!

FIRST UP IS JANA MILLEN @janamillen:

I have always loved making hand crafted items. I started with needlepoint and cross stitch when I was young, as I was taught by my grandmother to love these things. Over the years I have evolved to stamping and card making and have enjoyed it for over a decade. I love pushing my creativity beyond what I ever expected I could do, often inspired by other amazing artists/stampers. By far one of the best things about this craft is the friendships - getting together with friends to craft and meeting new people along the way. I am blessed that many of my closest friends are those whose paths I would never have crossed had I not been a paper crafter. When I am not crafting I am working as an Office Manager or playing with my cats Gracie and Kirby.

 

NEXT UP IS ANGELICA CONRAD @myloveforpaper:

Hello there! I’m Angelica Conrad, and I live just south of Seattle, in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I’m a mother to three amazing kids: Dylan, 16, Max, 13, and Vera, 16months. I have a spoiled golden retriever Gabby(she’s my shadow!) a lazy cat, (she should get a trophy!) and an amazing husband (my high school sweetheart!) I love cooking, family time, decorating (especially for Christmas!), and all things papercrafting. I’m inspired daily by the wonderful crafting community I have found online, and am proud to now be part of it. Its such an honor to be a Concord & 9th guest designer this month. I’m such a huge fan of their products, and can’t wait to share my creations with everyone.

Happy Crafting!

LAST BUT NOT LEAST IS JESSICA MCAFEE @jess.mcafee:

Hello! I'm Jessica, Executive Assistant by day and avid card maker by night (after bedtime is conquered and I've poured a glass of wine). I live in Toronto, Canada with my 7 year old son and husband. I discovered this amazing paper crafting world while wedding planning two years ago and haven't looked back!

My style is clean and layered, I almost always incorporate pattern paper, heat embossing and sparkly embellishments.I'm so excited to showcase this brand new release and can't wait to get cozy and festive!


Aren't these projects so beautiful! We just love seeing all the different ideas come from the same products!

Be sure to follow each of these talented ladies
on their Instagram & blogs too! You'll be glad you did!

August Guest Designers...Where Creativity Meets C9 Team! Yay! Hooray!

We couldn't be more excited to spend our birthday with the Where Creativity Meets C9 (WCMC9) team as our guest designers all month long! We're so happy to have this incredibly talented group of designers create with our August 9th release. This post will share a bit about each designer, along with a project using our earned Birthday dies and Birthday Balloon stamp set. The dies are earned on orders over $60 and the stamps and dies are earned on all orders over $120. Check out the promotions page for details!

Now...on to the design team and their creations!  

 

Jessica Frost-Ballas @jessicafrostballas of All the Sparkle

Hello!  I’m Jess and I am so excited to be guesting for Concord and 9th's 3rd birthday representing Where Creativity Meets C9!  So, a little about me…I live in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia with my incredibly supportive husband, two shelties, a tortie cat, and a senior bunny.  I am a professional musician by day and a papercrafter by night (or really early morning)!  I enjoy creating cards for my friends and family and I can often be found coloring a couple images or heat-embossing a sentiment in-between lessons and gigs!  I love experimenting with new techniques and mediums and I usually can’t resist adding a little extra sparkle to all of my cards and projects!!  Two years ago I approached Angie and Greg about starting a challenge blog for Concord & 9th and we're so excited to be able to share inspiration with you over at Where Creativity Meets C9 every month!  I really love the encouraging and supportive fans of Concord & 9th and I look forward to sharing my love of their amazing products with you!  

Karen Baker @bkbaker1222 of The Bald Dragonfly Designs

I'm a graphic designer by trade and mama of two energetic boys who spends weekdays at work and late evenings crafting. I gravitate towards the clean and simple style of card-making, but dabble in many other styles as well-anything to make the products shine! I adore the innovative and beautiful stamps, dies and papers from Concord & 9th and enjoy creating with them, especially for the Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge.

 

Melissa Bickford @justdandystudio of Just Dandy Studio

Hello, friends! My name is Melissa Bickford and I live in the beautiful state of Maine. My husband and I have two wonderful children, our daughter is 20 and our son is 16. My love for paper-crafting started when I discovered scrapbooking after the birth of our daughter. I enjoyed that for many years and was then introduced to stamping and card-making in 2007. I fell in love immediately and the rest is history. I'm a big fan of bright, happy colors and love creating cards with words that will uplift and inspire others. I have loved Concord & 9th from the moment they opened and feel honored that I get to create with their beautiful products and share them as part of the Where Creativity Meets C9 team!



Wendie Hilberdink @monkey_loves_oliver of Monkey Loves Oliver

Hello! I’m Wendie and I am thrilled to be joining Concord & 9th for their 3rd birthday celebration! I’m the new kid on the Where Creativity Meets C9 design team, but I’ve loved the experience so far! My favorite part of being on the team, besides seeing how everyone interprets the monthly challenges and working with fabulous C9 products, is having the totally legitimate excuse to craft while ignoring my normal adult responsibilities. “What’s that, honey? You need me to clean the kitchen? Sorry, I can’t! I absolutely MUST make my card for the next challenge! I made a commitment to the team!” :-)

Justin Krieger @jrk912 of JKcards

My name is Justin Krieger and I’m techie that does computer consulting. I live in Long Island, NY and I have a wonderful daughter Taylor and Yorkie named Cali. I have always done some kind of paper crafting ever since I was little when I made entire car dashboards out of oaktag. I discovered my love of card making in January of 2010 while watching a show on PBS. I saw them make a waterfall card and I thought I can do that so I went out and got some supplies and made one. My friend introduced me to Stampin’ Up! in August of that year and I became an Independent Demonstrator in September. I’m completely addicted to crafting and take some time to make something every day. It relaxes me and is my wind down at the end of the day!


Lindsey Larsen @occasionalcrafting of Occasional Crafting

Hi!  I'm Lindsey - wife, mother of two (soon to be three!), and crafter in my "spare" time...usually at night when I should be sleeping! ;) Though I occasionally dabble in all sorts of crafty endeavors, I've fallen in love with cardmaking and even more so card-sending.   Each card contains a piece of my heart and is my little way of brightening the lives of those I love. I'm constantly trying to simplify life, which is often reflected in my cards. Clean + simple = absolute happiness for me.

 

Emily Midgett @eamidgett of Sixth Street Sundries

Hi! I'm Emily Midgett. I live in rural Illinois with my husband, twin toddlers, two cats, and one very large dog. I have always been artistic, dabbling in various mediums from childhood and beyond: music (I have a master's in voice performance, but my diploma languishes in storage), watercoloring, drawing, jewelry-making, even cake decorating! After our wedding, I was desperate to find thank you notes that were "just right," and from then on my obsession with cardmaking began to flourish, much to my husband's simultaneous delight and dismay! I used to make cards to keep myself busy while my husband was at work, but now my craft room is my daily escape during naptime. Some people do yoga... I watercolor and make cards. It relaxes me and, I hope, makes me a better wife and mommy. Not to mention the network of friends that I have gained through this wonderful hobby is one of the best, and most unexpected, bonuses. I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with Concord and 9th, as I have been a longtime fangirl of their products. Thank you for having me!

 

Tenia Nelson @tenianelson of Jazzy Paper Designs

Hello all, my name is Tenia Nelson and I am a 30 something wife, momma, doggie momma, jazz pianist, music teacher, soccer player, metal stamper(I make jewelry) and paper crafter that lives in the 5280 (Denver, CO)! I am married to a wonderful guy named Tim, I am momma to my awesome son Thelonious (Theo) and I have two wonderful doggie "kids" Miles and Brillo. I love me some paper, inks, stamps and embellishments...and just LURVE to create!!! So excited to be guesting for Concord & 9th this month!!!

And last, but most definitely not least...we just went in alphabetical order by last names...it's Lisa Stein!

Lisa Stein @lstein0 of Lisa Stein

Hi! I’m Lisa Stein, and I currently live with my husband in the Southwest part of the United States. I have been playing with paper pretty much my whole life. I have a fairly clean and simple style, it’s just what appeals to me as a maker. I adore more intricate designs, from other people. Ha! I also spend time crocheting, cooking, and reading. If I could get paid to read, I would have found my dream job. I love all animals, and we are currently debating the timing for puppy acquisition. Golden Retriever, male, eight weeks old, after Thanksgiving please!

 

A HUGE thank you to this incredible team of designers! Please start following their Instagram feeds and blogs today!
