Happy Feature Friday! We are so excited to have Carissa Wiley, Jessica Frost-Ballas, and Rachel Arribas joining us this month as Guest Designers and can't wait to see their crafty take on our September 2022 Holiday Release! This week they're sharing all kinds of cards made with the Plaid Turnabout™ Stamp and the Winter Wonderland Bundle. Check out their designs and get to know each of these lovely ladies below!
CARISSA WILEY - @carissawiley
I am a lover of all things paper crafting. I have been teaching and sharing both online and in person since 2009. I have shared my handmade creations through online video tutorials, blogs and publications. I love teaching and empowering others to create their own one of a kind paper crafting projects. And most of all, I want you to know that YOU CAN DO THIS!
I have many passions outside of paper crafting. I am a wife, mother of three, with a day job as a registered nurse on the pediatric unit. I live in a small town in the Central Valley of California, where I grew up. I love the small town life. I have three children, one that is married, and two in college. I am also involved in many areas of my church, including music. I manage to stay plenty busy most of the time.
Until next time, I hope you have a fabulous day! XOXO
JESSICA FROST-BALLAS - @jessicafrostballas
Hello! My name is Jessica (though most people call me Jess) and I blog over atAll the Sparkle! I have loved Concord & 9th from the very beginning with Map Love and Take a Bough dies. I'm a short, happily married crafter living in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia with a small furry herd and a very supportive husband! I spend my afternoons teaching private music lessons in harp and piano but my mornings and late nights are filled with crafting! I love being a crafty chameleon, experimenting with new techniques and mediums, and I generally cannot resist adding a little extra sparkle to all my cards and projects! When I'm not making cards I can usually be found drinking coffee with a good book, experimenting with new recipes, or covered in alcohol ink! I look forward to sharing projects with you this month!
RACHEL ARRIBAS - @rachelrdesigns
Rachel here! My love for cardmaking was kind of a happy accident but since I made my very first card I knew I wanted to make more... I'm a full time librarian so my time to craft is limited. I have a 23 year old daughter and a 17 year old son. I live in Madrid but I'm a countryside girl, I was born in a small village and I'd love to live in such a peaceful and quiet place someday!
I'm so excited and grateful to be guest designing for Concord & 9th this month and share with you my love for cardmaking with their amazing products!
