We are happy to bring you this week’s Featured Company: Unity Stamp CompanyAnd this week we are giving away the November 2014 What Lies Within Us Kit of the Month (Details at the end of the post.)


Unity Stamp Company Designer – Lisa Arana

Today we welcome Lisa Arana.  We are so excited to have her showcase her work today on Paper Crafter’s Library. You can see Lisa’s fabulous project below, but first, here is a little more about her:

LisaAranaProfilePic-01072015-250WHi, my name is Lisa Arana, owner of dahlhouse designs. I began this crazy artistic blogging adventure in March 2009.

Who Am I?
I’m a wife in love with her husband, an adoring ‘mom’ to my 3 furry girls, a hiker, a baker, a computer/science nerd, a full time worker and weekend crafter.  I’m obsessive yet lazy, a procrastinator with lists and one sarcastic lady who loves to laugh.

Why dahlhouse designs?
It all started at a young age.  I used to make cards using those uber cool (at the time) computer card programs for friends and family.  My hallmark was dahlhouse cards based on my maiden name – Dahl.  Clever right?  So to carry on my legacy, I now have dahlhouse designs.

This is my paper crafted world full of cards, projects, challenges and friends.  Since beginning this wonderful blogging adventure, I have taken on some design team assignments, been published (Paper Crafts Magazine and CARDS), started making videos, became a stamp illustrator and found a fabulous community of friends in fellow paper crafting addicts!

What Lies Within Us Card

I decided that the flowers needed to be water colored first.  I stamped them off the edge of the card and then added the sentiment.  Came in with some simple water coloring and finished off with a bit of a splash of green color over it all.
