New Design Team!

I am so excited about today's post! Grab a cuppa - it's a long one :)

I thought it was about time I put together a little Design Team for Jay Gee's Nook, with the idea that each Sunday we will 'show case' different products that are available in the shop. I am so delighted and honored that these two ladies have agreed to be a part of this team with me. Lets meet these fabulous ladies shall we.

I live in a small town, in Southern New South Wales with my partner Darryl and our furbaby, Roly. I currently work part time, but like all us crafters would love to see my passion for the craft to turn into my daily job…oh to dream!

I have been crafting, especially stamping on and off, for about 16 years now and absolutely love it. Although I love all crafts, stamping is my passion, I love to create and have fun with the craft, lear
ning new techniques as I go along.

Just recently my partner allowed me to take ownership of one of the spare rooms that we have in our house and he has custome built all of my craft furniture. I love that I have everything at my finger tips and can come and go as I please; it really is my little haven and I adore my space.

I currently design for a company in New York and just recently Judith asked if I would like to try out designing for her. I have to say that I am thrilled and honoured to be asked, I am excited and looking forward to the venture ahead.

So please join me on my journey with Jay Gee's Nook.

I have been addicted to all things paper since I went to my first 'Stampin Up' demo when my oldest son was in 4yr old kinder. That was about 5 yrs ago. I have been married to the most kind and generous man for nearly 10 years. We live in Melbourne, Australia with our 2 boys, Calum 9 and Liam 6.

These girls are so talented. Please visit their blogs and leave them a comment :)

And now for some cards. We are show casing stamps from two awesome companies today - Lawn Fawn and Practicing Creativity. Remember to click on the Designers' name to see all of the details of their cards.

Joy's card is so cute, I love how she has made a little scene. That cat looks so satisfied doesn't it!

Ange's card is amazing. I never would have thought of using the rope as a frame for the card.

Both cards I am showing you today use a set called Christmas Wonder from Practicing Creativity. This set is perfect for those pepole that like big sentiments.

I embossed my cardstock with Cuttlebug's Star folder and lightly sanded it. Because this A Muse cardstock has a white core (red one side, white the other) the white shows through giving it a distressed look.

I like the colour combination of this next card. Purple may be a non-traditional colour for Christmas, but I think it works. I paper pieced the partridge and added some stitching.

Wow! If you are still with me after all that, I thank you. Enjoy your day.

Jay Gee
