City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 326 ~ It's all about YOU!

Hello and good morning everyone!
It's Stella here and today it's my turn to host the new challenge.
I choose: "It's all about you".
Use the word you on your projects.
A few examples:
You mean the world to me
Thank you
Miss you
Thinking of you
Happy birthday to you
But not:
It's your birthday
You're special to me etc.

Have fun!

 ~ Stella

Week 326 ~ It's all about YOU!



August Special Guest Star



I'm so honored to have been asked to join this talented group of ladies for the month! I have the most incredibly talented parents. My mom is an amazing artist and crafter and my dad a meticulous woodworker. I started drawing and painting as soon as I could hold a pencil. My mom had me embroidering and crocheting at age 7 and gave me a sewing machine when I turned 8. I had a full on woodworking shop long before it was fashionable. Gardening, woodworking pottery, sewing and stained glass kept me busy and earned me some money over the years. Since I was introduced to paper crafting I find that it consumes most of my time. I like that you can just stop in the middle of your project and come back and start up where you left off, easy peasy!! It is a fast moving and ever changing industry, I find it interesting trying to keep up with all the new trends. Also something important you should know about me is that I'm a Christian and try to live a life pleasing to the Lord.



Beautiful! Davi!
Please stop by Davi's blog and leave her some love!

City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 321 ~ Typically Tropical

Hi everyone. Or should I say ...'aloha!'
Here at City Crafter, we're not scared to work a trend! This week our theme is:
'Typically Tropical'
so we want to see sunshine, grass-skirts, palm trees, birds with bright plumage, orchids, pineapples....

We look forward to see what you do with this theme.

Week 321 ~ Typically Tropical 


Guest Designer

Please meet....


 
 Hi, my name is Karren Johnson and I live in Christchurch, New Zealand with my partner, Pete, and our youngest son, William (14). I have been stamping since before William was born but got into it seriously when I was on maternity leave and was looking for something to do with my spare time. I work full-time so have limited time to craft, but try and carve a few hours out of my Saturdays to sit down and stamp. My preferred style of card-making is CAS and I love practising my Copic colouring. Thanks to the City Crafter team for inviting me to join them this week.


Such a fun one Karren!
Please stop by Karren's blog for more of her lovely creation.
