"My name is Amber Kemp-Gerstel and Miami, Florida is home (though I’ll always have a soft spot for my SF Bay Area stomping grounds!). By day, I am a child psycholgist, but once the workday is done, you can find me crafting like a madwoman. Some of my loves include colorful shoes, egg salad on pumpernickel and late night reruns of 1980’s sitcoms (Golden Girls, anyone?) "
Julie is a busy crafter! She is the Design Team Coordinator for The Twinery and the Creator / Design Team Coordinator of challenge site The Playdate Cafe. She had a long crafty resume and we are happy to have her with us this month.
Amber created this cute bookmark with one of my favorite sentiments in today's set. I just love how she made a little “tassel” out of the chevron heart! I do believe I have just found the perfect valentine for my daughter’s to give to their classes this year. Be sure to check out Amber’s blog for more details.
There is a whole lot of love on this next card by Julie. I think that the color combination is so sweet. I am sure that the recipient will be thrilled to receive such a “lovely” card. ;) Check out Julie’s blog for more information.
Just look at the fantastic card that JJ created. Chalkboard images are all the rage and I love the depth that she created in this card. I do believe that this just might be the perfect set for this technique – I may be a little biased though. ;) Be sure to check out her blog here for more details.
How sweet is this card by Chunyuan? I love how she used different patterned paper to back each sentiment. How smart is that?! I know that she has more amazing projects to show you on her blog so be sure to check them out here. You don’t want to miss them!
Heather created this clean and simple one layer card and I just “adore” it! ;) The shaded repetition of the heart images creates an amazing composition. It takes talent to make something like this look so effortless. For more details and amazing projects be sure to check out her blog here.
