We are thrilled to have the talented Joy Taylor guest designing with us this month! We love her clean aesthetic. If you are not currently following her, you need to check out her beautiful blog, Simple by Design, and inspiring Instagram. Here's a little about Joy:
I am Joy and I live in Australia, in a small country town with my partner Darryl, we live in a small cottage with a brick path, lavender either side and a garden out the front…I have loved to craft for as long as I can remember and realised that I certainly needed my own room to come and go as I please...Darryl has built me all of my furniture in my craft room and he is super talented, I love and adore my room and it is constantly in a work of progress and a busy little hub, designing cards either for design teams or for myself...I have been on many design teams and have guested for many more, always honoured and humbled when asked...I have met so many people around the world through this craft and many have become close friends, this craft is something that keeps my life sane and smiles everyday!
Joy used our Layers of Love Bundle and 3mm Blush Sequins with the card she made below and we love it! The delicately placed sequins are perfectly placed to look like blossoms around the heart wreath. Head over to Joy's blog for more details on how she created this card.
Yuki has created another beautiful card with our Layers of Love stamp set & die (sold in a BUNDLE at a discounted price) and Sophisticated Script stamp set. We love how the "FRIEND" sentiment looks like a label maker and the color combo is dreamy! Be sure to check our her blog, Handmade by Yuki, for more details on how to make this card. There are a few special (hidden) techniques that you may not realize at first glance. SO COOL!
Yep - another guest designer! If you are not already following Kay Miller, you should go do that right now! Her talent for card making is top notch! You can find Kay on Instagram under @kaym2015 or on her beautiful blog, My Joyful Moments. Here is a little bit about Kay:
Hi, I’m Kay Miller. I’ve been in love with stamping and card making for over 20 years. I am currently living a long time dream of mine, creating for several of my favorite stamp companies. I live in Missouri with my wonderful husband, two great kids, and lots of furry friends. Along with my love of card making, I also enjoy creating Christmas ornaments from Polymer clay, digital scrapbooking, photography, and long walks outside with the doggies. I am beyond excited to be guest designing for Concord & 9th!
Kay used our new Layers of Love stamp set & Layers of Love die (also sold as a bundle) to create this STUNNING card. Just looking at it speaks for itself! Now go run, don't walk, over to Kay's blog and start following her if you want to be inspired. We sure are!

We thought we'd play along with the #2015BestNine happening on Instragram right now. We looked up our IG posts that got the most 'likes' in 2015 (the 5 months we were in business) and put them all together to see in one glance.
It's fun to see a mixture of cards, products, guest designers and reposts making the top of the list. THANKS for all the likes! We have loved watching our following grow & appreciate each of you!
