Guest Designers
Julie from Pumpkin Belly Cards
 Hi my name is Julie and I am so excited to be joining you as a guest designer.  I live in Surrey with my Hubby Steve and our little Man, who has just turned 6. I also work full time as an accountant which can be pretty stressful, so love to come home and be creative and destress.  I have been dabbling in card making for about 20 years, but only got seriously addicted about 3 years ago when I discovered Copics and digital stamps, I love to colour .  I also recently started to learn encaustic art and to dabble in mixed media.

Hi my name is Aunty Sue. I live in the North West of England and Mum to 1 grown up son. I have always dabbled in some form of Crafting, but have found that Card Making has been my main hobby for the last 10 years. I am on several Design Teams and am GDT Co-ordinator for Crafty Catz. I am thrilled to have been asked to be GDT for this week and hope that you like my Card.


Michelle from Laughing Ducks
Hi - my name is Michelle and I am so happy to be a GDT this week at Crafting by Designs.
I live in Buxton, Derbyshire but originally come from Liverpool.
I have been card making since 2008, though I did do other Crafts before then.  I can't think
of a nicer hobby to have.  I also have recently got into the Art Therapy craze and love
to do intricate designs.  Card making will always be my No. 1 hobby though.



Melanie from Creative World of Melanie
Hey there, my name's Melanie and I live in the South West of Germany, in Rhineland-Palatinate.
I am a 32-year-old single woman, working full-time in the quality management of a fruit & vegetable wholesaler close by. In my free time I enjoy crafting, writing letters to my pen pals, swimming and travelling all around the world. I started crafting very young as my mom always did something with us (my brother and me), whether it was crafting with paper and cardboard to make nice pictures, crafting with plaster or wool, or other materials. During the winter time we always did some crafty projects as we couldn't spend as much time outside as in summer - and we loooved doing that! 
I got my first digi stamp at the beginning of 2011 and since that time I am addicted to stamping and making my own cards. By now I have loads of digi images and rubber / clear stamps. I love making my own cards. It's soo relaxing after a long day at work. If you're interested in seeing more of my creations feel free to visit my blog here at Creative World of Melanie



Rosina from Rosina's Scrapcards
I'm Rosina Loos, 68 years old and already 45 happily married to Bart, where we have lived together all that time on a farm in a small village in south-western Netherlands. We have two daughters, both married and four grandchildren . I'm all my life creative, make now as a 10 years scrapcards since 2010 and have a personal blog where I can let my creative uitspattnigen zien..en I hope this also for a long time to continue, because I enjoy it enormously from ..
But I should very much like bicycles and computers ....


Louise from Crafty Mum Louise
 Hi my name is Louise and i am currently a stay at home mum to 2 boys. I have been paper crafting for about 10 years now and still love it. I like to have a go at most things but love stamps and die cutting the most. I wish i had more time to sit at my craft desk (don't we all?) and play but family comes first. I am currently on 3 design teams which i enjoy. Thanks to Crafting by Designs for inviting me to be a Guest Designer this month. Hope you like my Card!

Now how's that for inspiration? We can't wait to see
your projects!  This challenge is open until October 27.
Thanks for playing along!
