Please welcome Laura as our card guest designer this month!
 

Hello, dear friends! My name is Laura, LauraVi in virtual world (VI are the first two letters of my surname and http://www.vive-lavi.blogspot.it/ is my blog), I am a Primary School teacher, I live in Milan with my husband. I am so thrilled and honoured to be here as May Guest Designer!
I have been loving with scrapbooking since 2009. I like the ancient look of ordinary things, the objects that tell us a story, reading, colours (my favourite one is green), sea and its breath, Harry Potter and his world, cooking and other million things and activities.
 
The May SID card sketch inspired me so much and I created two cards. I immediately thought to realize the background with an embossing folder, but the final works are totally different.
Thank you very much to Ashley and other Ladies for this opportunity and for the monthly inspirations.


 Thank you, Laura, for your beautiful cards!

Please welcome Anne-Liesse as our double page guest designer!

My name is Anne-Liesse, and I had a great time guest designing this two-page spread for May. I live in North Carolina, and have done so for the last 13 years. I am a teacher, wife and mother and I have been scrapbooking for more than 18 years. I rubber stamped cards and made hand crafted mini books before that. I love the color and the visual texture of scrapbooking. It just makes me happy to make pretty pages with pretty paper and tell stories along with it.

I so enjoyed working with this great sketch, and I hope you do, as well.

April guest designer... CG!


 Hi I am Jodi, Owner/Designer at Corbett Creations Wood Veneers.  My laser cutting business is currently based in Canberra and has been something I have been working on for a little while now.  It came about because I would be constantly frustrated that I couldn't find the perfect title or embellishment to finish off layouts, projects or gifts.  I would then spend far too long trying to create the perfect embellishment and would sometimes rope my husband in to help me with all this cool tools in the man shed!  He has a love for wood also and together we purchased our laser.  I love being able to design and cut the perfect piece for someone to finish telling their story - the perfect title, the hard to find themed embellishment, a custom piece for the home or a meaningful gift, really makes me feel so happy because I know that their search is over and they have the perfect piece that they desired.  I love to create in wood, chipboard, cardstock, paper and acrylic with so many different
I can create so many embellishments and titles - the possibilities are endless.
Please welcome CG!

I'm a crafter living in Baltimore, Maryland. I like all sorts of crafts, but am mostly a cardmaker. I've been blogging for eight years, and have so enjoyed meeting crafters from around the world.

This card was inspired by evenings spent crafting at our local library. The patterned paper is wallpaper that I got at one of their open crafting nights, and I used a technique that mimics Vinegar Painting, which I learned about there as well. My cards always have their own story!


You can find more details on how I made my card on my blog HERE.
