Playing Catch Up - Guest Designer

Oh man, are you ever feeling so behind in life that you're tempted just to throw caution to the wind and *finally* sit down with that book you've been wanting to read and just forget the world?! Sigh, oh how I dream of that moment. But, as any responsible business owner - I'll just settle for being 'late' .. and running to play 'catch up' ....

Ok so, let's get ourselves caught up with a couple housekeeping items...

First, the winner of the last UWYH challenge was...

Katie Brooks - with this really unique and fun card

Be sure to stop by her blog - HERE and check out how she came up with this gem of a card!

*** We're not giving up on the UWYH challenge - it just won't be weekly - mostly because we're introducing more designers - and we've got a new illustrator and we need more room on the blog! So, we'll still throw out challenges - but, it won't be weekly.

Next - we had a bit of a give-a-way in honor of our big announcement - Alyssa as our new illustrator...

The random winner (thanks to punch tab - we just press 'random winner' and up pops a name)

It's Iva Youngs! Congrats girlie! You should have gotten an email from the punch tab people - from us - to let you know of your win!

Ok - now I'm feeling kinda caught up - well, at least with prizes.

I can't wait to introduce our guest designer this week - Bethany Stellpflug (and she's only 17!!)

Hello! My name is Bethany Stellpflug, I am 17, and I live in the Finger Lakes region of New York. I am a Jesus Freak, and I love photography, hunting, fishing, cats, playing board games with my sister, and I raise and show chickens and ducks, and I also help run our family's small pumpkin farm. My papercrafting style is pretty much clean and simple with a bit of fun and cute and lots of artistic looks, like watercolors and splatter and such thrown in. Thanks so much to Sweet Stamp Shop for asking me to be a guest designer!

And here is a link to my blog:

Ahhhh, to be 17 again.... --- eh, actually - Bethany, you're going to LOVE your twenties WAY more! <3 I'd go even a step further and say, 25 onward - I owned. lol - So, give it a couple years... you're going to rock this crafty universe - I can tell! <3 

Here's what Bethany put together with some of the stamps we sent her... 

Love her style - it's fresh and funky - and kinda artsy! Just what I'd expect from a budding artist! Thank you so much Bethany for hanging out with us - you're welcome anytime! 

Take a moment to join the Facebook event page for our November release - it's happening soon! HERE.

Have a nice Wednesday PEPS!
