Our 2021 Holiday Release is here and we're so excited to be kicking off the first of four Feature Fridays! We have some amazingly talented Guest Designers joining us–Channin Pelletier, Seeka, Therese Calvird, and Yasmine Diaz. This week they've taken the Mix & Match Holiday Sentiments Bundle and the Tiny Trees Bundle and created some very merry holiday inspiration! You can see what they've made below while also getting to know them each a little better.
Hello! I’m Channin Pelletier and I live in sunny Arizona with my husband and our two sweet daughters. I’m a long time stamper and papercrafter. I actually started papercrafting back in junior high by carving my own stamps from erasers for to make handmade cards and scrapbook pages. However over the years, cardmaking has definitely become my most favorite crafty hobby! It’s difficult for me to nail down my style, I’m bit of chameleon! I love clean and simple designs, coloring critters and flowers, and even constructing interactive cards! But overall I love trying to come up with designs that are unique or unexpected!
Hi everyone, it’s Seeka and I’m so excited to be here!
By day I’m a digital product manager in the San Francisco Bay Area and by night, I’m an ink-covered card maker. I found my way into card making in 2017 when I was looking for a way to de-stress from work. I'd never been crafty, but I’d always loved handwriting and paper so I thought I’d try hand lettering. While searching for videos on calligraphy I came across card-making videos and I was instantly hooked! It's still hard for me to believe that in just a few years' time I've gotten to meet and make many crafty friends. So, while card making started as a stress-relieving hobby for me, it evolved into finding a community that I'm so grateful to be a part of!
I thoroughly enjoying creating cards and videos, trying out new techniques and playing with all the fun products that are available and being able to share these with you. My style tends more toward clean and simple, often it seems the more I try to add to a card the more I take away. I like to colour, and am particularly fond of using different mediums such as pencils, alcohol markers and watercolours and I will switch between these depending on the project that I am creating or where my mood takes me.
I am thrilled to be part of this wonderful papercrafting community that we have. It is the most amazing place with such incredible support and encouragement, it creates friendships that last a lifetime!
