Let's Welcome Another New Designer On Our Team

I'm really thrilled to introduce you guys to our second designer that will be joining us..

Let's give a warm welcome to Heidi.

Here's a little blurb about her:

Hi! My name is Heidi and I live in sunny Tucson, AZ.  I have 2 wonderful daughters and my youngest loves to craft along the side of me.  I got started into stamping by attending a Stampin' Up party with a friend about 18 years ago. I have a full time job. I work 40 hrs a week at a small construction company in the front office. So most my card making is crammed into my evenings before bed.  

My favorite way to color an image is with:
 I use mainly copic markers to color my images.  I don't have them all but I am almost there.
My creative style:  
My style seems to be cean and simple most the time but I do occasionaly use several embellishments.

My craft area is
I have my own craft room now that my oldest daughter is out of the house. It is untidy most the time which is unlike the rest of the house. 

Do you have a stash of colored images: 
 No I don't have a stash of colored images. But I normally have a stash of made up cards.  

Below is a sneak peak of her creative style. Super cute. Can't wait to see more of Heidi's projects.

Please Meet Our Newest Designer!

I am super excited to introduce you to our newest design team member...


Read on to get to know Jackie and her crafty world!
My name is Jackie, and I live in Northern Kentucky, bordering Ohio with my husband and one of my grandsons. I work full time outside the home and love my job!! Among crafting I love to read, and spend time with all of my beautiful grand-children. We have 8, 6 boys - 23 yrs, 21 yrs, 15 yrs, 14 yrs, 10 yrs and 4 yrs, then finally along came our girls both 2 1/2 being 2 months apart from each one. Hunter our 14 yr old, keeps me active with being a grandma/mom as he plays sports and me being his taxi!
My favorite way to color an image is with: I use Copics, definitely my go to medium.

My creative style: It depends a lot on what type of image I’m coloring.I love bright colors and seem to have a passion for polka dots

My craft area is:  A total MESS. Really a MESS and it is my place to hide. It may looks like a tornado went through it. But again it's my Get Away and I usually can find what I am needing, may take a few extra minutes but I normally will find it. One day I will have the most organized craft area (but then I probally won't beable to find a thing).

I do the majority of my crafting at: Usually in the evening after coming in from work, my way of relaxing!

Do you have a stash of colored images: No, but a stack of images waiting to be colored :) I usually will color images to the design papers I will use on my designs.

Looking forward to being a member of ARF!!

Let's Make A Birthday Wish Come True

Yesterday, I stumbled upon this article What Does One Boy Battling Cancer Want For His Birthday? It's about 5 year old Danny Nickerson who is battling cancer. I believe the article said it is an inoperable cancer. For his 6th birthday all he wants is a box full of birthday cards.

Since I am able to reach out to all the super talented card designers I wanted to help fulfill Danny's wish. I am providing 2 digis for you to use for his birthday card. Please feel free to grab them but in return you must send him a birthday card. Digis will become unavailable Monday at 7 AM PST.

You can help make his wish come true by sharing the article What Does One Boy Battling Cancer Want For His Birthday? , sharing/relinking this post, like our facebook post which I announced on ARF facebook, etc.

I will also be making a card for Danny and hopefully he'll like it.

His birthday is JULY 25th. Let's make Danny's wish come true!

Card can be sent to:
Danny Nickerson
P.O. Box 212
Foxboro, MA, 02035.
