Today I’m so thrilled to welcome a special Guest Designer to the Paper Crafter’s Library Blog – Ashley Cannon Newell! I have been a long-time follower of Ashley’s, absolutely loving her style of paper crafting….and I just know you’re going to love the projects she is sharing with us today! But first, let’s get to know her a little bit more…
I’m Ashley and I have a passion for paper crafting, photography, fashion, and trying new recipes in the kitchen. I have always been interested in the arts since I can remember. I started my first scrapbook in high school and that was long before any industry focused products were available. I started blogging in 2008 after discovering the paper crafting online world. Currently, I design for Papertrey Ink and also run a challenge-based eZine. When I’m not in my studio, you can find me at work (yep, gotta day job), photographing a wedding, surfing the Internet, or watching a Lifetime movie. I’m really honored that Andrea wanted me to guest design for Paper Crafter’s Library! I hope you enjoy my cards!
For the first card, I used patterned paper and stamps to come up with a design.
Instead of putting away all of my supplies, I thought it would be a good time to challenge myself to use the same materials to generate another card with a different design.
So, I made the second card with the scraps from the patterned paper (you can see in the video) and just about all the same stamps and inks and paper. I think this is a great way to make multiple cards in one sitting and will definitely challenge myself to do it again in the future!
If you are more of a visual person, you can view the video below to help you create the Celebrate card above. I hope you enjoy it!
