August Guest Designer Sharla Laursen

Please help us in welcoming (back) our August Guest Designer, Sharla Laursen!

We welcomed Sharla as our guest Designer in June and loved her creations so much that we had to have her back again in August! ๐Ÿ™‚ 



Sharla blogs over at This Thing Called Life

Hi everyone! My name is Sharla and  I’m so excited to be back as a guest designer for August! This is such a fun place to play, find lots of inspiration, buy fun, cute, quirky and sweet images and make fabulous friends.  

A little about me….I’ve been scrapping, card making, wood working, and finding diy projects for as long as I can remember. I’m a little obsessed with Copics, I’m addicted to diet coke and if ice-cream was the only food on the food pyramid…I would be totally ok with that! I love movies and reading, I love to travel and I love food.  I would love to travel the US and hit all the places featured on Diners, Drive-In’s and Dives.  ๐Ÿ˜€

If I had to say what my style is, I would say clean and layered is what I mostly gravitate too.  I have tried the shabby chic look and while I love it, I’m not sure I can pull it off.  I love using bright colors, polka dots and pattern papers.  Sometimes when I am done with a card, I realize I’ve only used paper and no other embellishments.  I really love my copics…did I say that already? ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have two adult children and 3 adult step-daughters, one who will be making us grandparents in November, we are so excited!  My daughter will be a freshman at our local university and my son will be graduating the police academy later this month. 

Well, that’s me in a nutshell.  I’m really happy for this opportunity to be a guest at such a fun place in the blogesphere!  Hope you join us in our challenges, play along and make sure you say hi! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is Sharla’s first project with us this month:

Can’t wait to see what you create with us this month, Sharla!

Farewell July Guest DesignVivi Casale


I can hardly believe that we are wrapping up the month of July! I want to thank our July Guest Designer, Vivi for a fun month on behalf of Karen and the YNS Design Team. She was a doll to work with! If you missed her cute party of an introduction, you can see it here.

Here is Vivi’s last project for the month – won’t you go over and say hi for us and tell her she showcased YNS really well?


Vivi is showcasing Cleo. I love the way she made it shabby chic adding in the doily and the roses with rose background!

Thanks so much for all your hard work, Vivi! Take care and we’ll see you around blogland soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

Welcome July Guest Designer – Vivi Casale

Please help us in welcoming our special Guest Designer for July: 


Vivi Casale

In Vivi’s own words:

My name is Vivi Casale, I’m 46 yo and live in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

I’ve been paper crafting for about 10 years now and it all started with the quilling technique.. I just could not believe what I could do with 3mm of strips of paper…  I got crazy about it till I fould out the world of rubber stamping…  fell in love immediately…  and now  can’t live without my Copic markers and my rubber stamps…  just love to make a card and  how it can brighten someone’s day!!

I`m totally thrilled to be chosen for the Guest Designer spot, what an honor!! I hope to inspire you for the challenge!

Here is Vivi’s first YNS card for the month and I know she’ll be bringing more fun and inspiration throughout the month:

So adorable, right?! She used Rocky as seen below:

Introducing Our May Guest Designer!

Hello!  Are you ready to meet our fabulous Guest Designer this month? Please give a warm welcome to Shuly Cartes!


Hello crafty friends!
My name is Shuly and i was asked to be Your Next Stampโ€™s guest designer for May.
Iโ€™ll never be too thankful for this invitation! YNS images are so sweet and cheerful, I always have a great time working with them!

Iโ€™m a married mum of 4 little girls, I live in south east France. I often find myself rushing through the day and so scraping is a great opportunity to take a break! I started a couple of years ago and I learnt a lot by watching videos and cards other people made. I find challenges are a great way of discovering new ideas and making new friends. Hope youโ€™ll enjoy playing along as much as I did ! see you around soon!
Hugs


Shuly

Here is a beautiful card that Shuly made using Ellie Loves Chocolate:

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful rest of your weekend!
