Guest Designer Spotlight - AJ and Becky!

 We're featuring TWO lovely ladies today on the blog! -- I have to say that I am LOVIN' the amazing creations that the designers this month are showing off!! Are you getting inspired or what?!

Anyway, let's dive right in -

Let me introduce you to AJ Otto

Here is a little about AJ in her own words -

I have been crafting since as long as I can remember, but the spark to get into paper crafting began when I was pregnant with my oldest child. Wanting to preserve every moment and memory lead me to scrapbooking. I have since gone into cardmaking. I still scrapbook, but with a less is more approach, which can also be found in my cards. I love linear graphic images, clean lined designs, and have an overall less is more approach to crafting.

I am a stay at home mom to two children, Will, 13, and Lauren, age 9. Along with my husband, we live in the Pacific Northwest area and love to get out doors and spend time kayaking, skiing, or hanging out at the beach. I also love to cook, bake, and photography.  I am currently celebrating 18 months of being a brest cancer survivor!  Visit AJ's Blog HERE.

Next up is Becky Gromala!

Here is a little about Becky from the crafty lady herself!

Hi all, my name is Becky. I’m a pretty happy go lucky girl, I love being inspired by life and being an inspiration to others. By day I’m a chiropractic assistant and by night I’m a crafter of all genres but I have been paper crafting since about 1998. 

I’m so excited to be joining such a ‘sweet’ team to guest design. I have been a huge fan of Sweet Stamp Shop since I first discovered them a few years ago.  To say the team has been welcoming and helpful to me on so many levels is an understatement! I know you’ll enjoy this company as much as I do. I’d love it if you also visited my blog - HERE -- I have lots more ‘Sweet’ creation there too.
Becky worked with Warm Notes this month as she did a fabulous job!! She really went to town making lots of different style cards - with ONE stamp set. How amazing is that!?! If you go to her blog you can see more!

If you think of it this way - Becky made close to 10 cards. The stamp set costs $7.95 .... That's only $.79 a card. (and that number will go down and down the more she uses it!) Making stuff at home IS more cost effective! (Now, if we can just use what we have rather than buying more, right!?! - Curse of being Crafty!

Thanks to all who stopped by today! We'll be back here tomorrow with more amazing designers and lots more inspiration!

Couple reminders....

It's that time when we start looking for March guest designers... if you'd like to be considered please comment below with your blog address, your name, and your location.


Head over to the shop to get the latest stuff!

Happy Wednesday Sweet Friends!
