We are happy to bring you this week’s Featured Company: Simon Says Stamp. And this week we are giving away a $25 US Gift Certificate to Simon Says Stamp. (Details at the end of the post.)
Simon Says Stamp Designer – Shari Carroll
Today we welcome Shari Carroll. We are so excited to have her showcase her work today on Paper Crafter’s Library. You can see Shari’s fabulous project below, but first, here is a little more about her:
Shari has been a professional stamper/cardmaker for nearly a quarter of a century (that’s a long time) starting with Hero Arts in 1989. She began as a replication artist creating display boards for retail stores, which lead to demonstrations and catalog work.
Over the years Shari has been published in numerous magazines including Somerset Studio, The Gallery, Stampers Sampler, Take Ten, Creating Keepsakes, Better Homes and Gardens, Paper Crafts and more. Shari has also contributed to several Design Original Books along with the Autumn Leaves Designing With series. In 2006, Shari was asked to write her own book for Northlight Publications called Layers.
In June of 2013, Shari resigned from her position with Hero Arts to join the Simon Says Stamp family where she holds the title of Creative Director and Product Manager. Shari’s stamps, dies, stencil and flair designs can be found in the Simon Says Stamp exclusive line of products.
Shari resides in a small farm community outside of Chicago with her husband Tom, sons Brooks (nearby) and Scooter, plus her tortoise Chester. Her love for nature is evident in her photography and instagram shots of her friendly squirrels.
