EMILY LEIPHART @EMILY.LEIPHART
I’m so honoured and excited to be a guest designer with Concord & 9th for the month of October! I’ve been married to my mechanical design engineer husband for 16 years and we have a very energetic, outgoing and creative 11-year-old son who loves to perform. I enjoy coffee and tea with pastries, practicing yoga, curling up with a good book, shopping, long walks and finishing the day with a glass of wine. I’ve been making handmade cards since I was a child but I only got serious about blogging and publications after my son was born. My favourite paper crafting projects are cards, folded note cards and treat packaging. I’m a huge fan of Concord & 9th’s clever and innovative products and I look forward to sharing my projects with you!

Hi! I'm so happy to serve as a guest designer for Concord & 9th, one of my favorite craft companies!
I've been stamping on and off for over 10 years. I've tried a lot of styles, but no matter how I start out, I usually end up with one or two layers and minimal embellishments.
I live in Fairfax, Virginia, outside Washington DC, with my very nice husband. I'm also a mom of one son, who flew the nest a couple of years ago. Last year, I was lucky enough to retire from my career as a lawyer. When I'm not crafting, I'm thinking about crafting, about how I should be cleaning my craft room, or about the fantastic stamping community from whom I've learned so much.
I hope you enjoy Concord & 9th as much as I do!
I'm LauraJane, I've been crafting for as long as I can remember. As a child, I recall cutting class in the 4th grade to make paper chains from magazines with my Grandma for Christmas decorations. :) Now, I teach my own kids at home where the schoolroom IS the craft room . . . It's such a HAPPY place!
In 2014 I started my blog,After Hours Ink & Flowers, so I could join in all the fun card challenges. The blog world of stamping and card making, along with video tutorials has brought much joy to my life. Encouraging others in their creativity has become a passion too!
Flowers are my favorite stamps to work with and I LOVE to color. :) I also ADORE the simplicity and ease of connecting with other crafters on Instagram where I'm known asmammacooksalot. IG is where Concord and 9th caught my eye, swooning over their blooming stamp images and innovative dies. Getting the opportunity to work with C&9th was on my Creative Bucket List. Thank you Concord & 9th for entrusting your newest release to me!
