Hello everyone! Welcome to June, and welcome to June RELEASE DAY! Today we are excited to introduce you to our June guest designers! Becky, Lisa & Sue will be sharing projects with us each Friday this month as part of our Feature Friday series using our new June release products!
Read on to learn more about this months guests, and to see what they've created using our new Beautiful Butterfly Bundle! Welcome ladies!! :)
FIRST UP IS BECKY ROBERTS @inkingidaho:
Here is a bit about Becky in her own words:
I’ve been stamping for 18 years and blogging about stamping for 12 years at Inking Idaho. Although stamping will always be my first love, making paper purses and paper flowers run a close second. I love to create dimensional items! My style is pretty clean and simple with attention to every detail. I’m not much of a technique stamper – a little too OCD to make a big mess. I have a tiny stamping area in the alcove of our bonus room where the dog lays at my feet and the cat in the window and a view of the gorgeous mountains at the end of our street.
I started stamping with the deaf community in Sacramento 18 years ago after I lost my own hearing with the birth of our first son. I needed to find a hobby that I could enjoy without having to ‘hear’ too much instruction. A friend suggested stamping and the rest is history and the reason I use the hashtag #deafstamper on Instagram.
I have been married to George Papadopoulos for 26 years and we have two college age boys, Benjamin and Nicholas. We also have a golden retriever named Daphne and a cat named Cheeto, so basically we will never be empty nesters and that is just the way we like it!
NEXT UP IS LISA SPANGLER @sideoats:
Here is a bit about Lisa in her own words:
Hi! I'm Lisa Spangler, nice to meet you! I live in Austin, Texas with my husband and best friend, Jason, 2 goldfish, and a jungle of houseplants. I love making cards because it's like sending a hug in the mail. When I'm not playing with paper I can be found out hiking or eating tacos -- especially breakfast tacos! Yep, it's a thing.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST IS SUE PLOTE @thispinkrooster:
Here is a bit about Sue in her own words:
Hi! I'm Sue Plote…wife, mom and Nana…and I live on a farm in northern Illinois with my husband of 30 years. I’m not sure how it’s all happened so quickly but we have two adult children, two grandsons…and a granddaughter, too! I worked for more than 20 years as a marriage and family therapist...and today I volunteer on our local mental health board.
I was introduced to stamping and papercrafting nearly 16 years ago...and it was definitely love at first sight! I adore card making…but my heart truly lies in gift packaging. Handmade touches can truly make any day extraordinary. I'm super honored and excited to be a guest designer with Concord & 9th this month...and I can't wait to share it all with you!
Please help us welcome these talented crafters!
