Featured Guest Designer for Challenge 111 - It's All About Travel

Hello and happy Friday!

 
******** 
  
Today the Fussy and Fancy girls
are happy to introduce
our very talented
Guest Designer

Elizabeth Hart


 
Here's a little about Elizabeth: 
 
I have been making cards and paper crafts for over 14 years.

During the day I teach AP Government and Politics to
high school students, but often I
cannot wait to get home to start creating.

I love paper most of all and cannot resist a
pretty pad of new papers.

My puppy is a Bichon and she loves to rip apart any stray papers I might leave about.
And, last but not least, I am fortunate to have a husband that helps support my fun hobby.

 

*******
 
Elizabeth has made a Lovely card
for our, "It's All About Travel", challenge
using our current sponsor
"Fresh Brewed Designs"
"Suitcase" digi


 

Elizabeth, Your
Travel themed card is so
fun and cheerful!
 
The pretty chevron design paper is
the perfect compliment for the striped
suitcase stamp!  Such pretty colours and
how special that you added a matching
chevron patterned button!
 
I love the pretty lace peeking out from
beneath your framed image.
 
The beautiful velvet ribbon topped
with the lovely
flower makes the aqua coloured stripes
on the suitcase really pop.
 
The pretty pearls, flowers and heart add the
perfect finishing touches to
such a lovely and fun card!

Featured Guest Designer for challenge 110 Shabby Chic

Hello and happy Friday!

 
******** 
  
Today the Fussy and Fancy girls
are happy to introduce
our very talented
Guest Designer

Katie K.

 
Here's a little about Katie: 

My name is Katie and I live in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
 
 I have been crafting for as long as I can remember.
I was introduced to stamping in 2008 and fell in love with
card making instantly.
  
I love shabby Chic and vintage style and would like to try
multi-media and grunge style this year.
 
Two years ago, I finally had enough confidence to start my own blog and it has been an incredible journey for me.
I have made some wonderful friends and learned so much from many paper crafters around the world. Your beautiful creations truly inspire me.  
 
I hope my art work can inspire you too.
I am very honored to guest design for Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.
 

*******
 
Katie has made a Gorgeous card
for our, Shabby Chic challenge.


 
 

Katie, Your
Birthday card is GORGEOUS!
 
You certainly have mastered the
Shabby Chic style!
 
We love the image with the lovely soft shades
of blue and pink that you coloured!
 
Just look at all of the beautiful
layers of lace!
 
The brown floral die cut going up the side
is so delicate and lovely.
 
The white scroll and lace ribbon make the
perfect setting for the pink ribbon rose.
So very pretty!
 
The pearl floral trim and the tiny butterflies
add the perfect feminine touches.
 
What a wonderful Birthday keepsake
you have created!
 
A Treasure to be sure!
