I have so many fun ideas for all these new products but my crafty space is still in boxes!!! I know, it’s hard to believe but my space in the new office is not ready yet so I couldn’t unpack my personal supplies soooo my mother was nice enough to let me use her space. Thanks MOM!  The new business space is up and running so that’s a good thing!

With the time I had in my mom’s crafty space I created this adorable 3×3 note card featuring the awesome new 3×3 Circle Panel Die and Party Pets stamp set! FUN!

I’m feeling very OMG right now with all the renovations so that’s why I chose to use that sentiment! The inside of the card says “Did someone say cake?!”

Hi my name’s Ashlee. I’m 29, married and recently a first time mum to a beautiful little girl.

Rajni Chawla

Blog:  Timeless Creations

I am Rajni Chawla and run my craft website www.rajnichawla.com.
I live in New Delhi (India) with my four kids – a daughter, a son and two cute little Labradors. Its nearly 6 years now that I started off in the field of card-making as a newbie. And now, thousands of projects later, I can proudly say that I start each of my creations with the same enthusiasm as I started my first one with. I eat, sleep and breath everything that has to do with crafting. My love for ART simply grows with each project that I make. Flowers and birdies are my weakness. Vibrant and bright colors are my style. But that said, I enjoying experimenting and love to make mistakes (I call them happy accidents) so that I create something new. I am a self made artist who learnt so many art forms by my own hit n trial methods. Quiller, Card Maker, Scrapbooker, Mixed Media Artist, A Product Developer (recently I launched my Frosting Powder and Crystal Clear glitters all across the globe) and now a CAS Card Artist….I think the list will keep growing with the time as I love trying each artform that tempts me. Currently I am working as a designer with US based company, Heartfelt Creations and an Indian brand, Papericious. I have also worked as a DT with Dusty Attic(Australian Company) and Scrapiniec( Poland based company).
I feel very honoured to be part of YNS as a Guest DT for the month of August, 2017.  The YNS products, especially the naughty monster stamps have always tempted me to try on my new style…that is CAS. I will caIl it my NEW STYLE as I have hardly created few of the CAS cards which can be easily counted. I am still in the learning process of creating clean, simple and cute cards. I am so excited that I’ll be sharing my passion with like-minded crafters. A very heartfelt thanks to Your Next Stamp for giving me this chance to work with such a talented design team. Hoping to learn more with you all.

August is going to be a fun month!  Your Next Stamp is celebrating it’s 8th birthday and the party is going to be BIG!   We have a great lineup of guests joining in the celebration; Amy Lim, Angel Rivera, Trina Pham,  Anita Madden, Amy Tsuruta, Tracy Penney, and there may even be some surprises during the month!

The Birthday and new release festivities start in a few days, this Saturday, August 5th.
