I thought I’d do some enabling today and list all my favourate blog hangouts:
Crafters (cards/stamping/paper crafts)
- Pickled Paper Designs – Amy Sheffer
Amy Sheffer is my personal Card Maker Idol. She has a mature, balanced style that uses lots of layers and detail without it ever feeling overwhelmed or cluttered. I also love the papers and “extras” she uses.
- Capture The Moment – Nichole Heady (Papertrey Ink)
Nichole is an Inspirational Genius. She has this innocent, simple style that catches me off guard all the time. My head usually can’t think how something so simple can look so beautiful. She’s also the owner of Papertrey Ink, a stamp company that carries the most beautiful, functional line of stamps and relevant products.
- My Time, My Creations, My Stampendence – Lauren Meader
This woman is an inspiration on all levels of life. She has so much joy and energy, and her creativity knows no bounds.
- Stamping with Markies Mom – Faith Hofrichter
I love her cards, and I love her stories – her “Speedy the cat” stories are legendary & so funny!
- Poetic Artistry – Julee Tilman (Verve Stamps)
Julee is the reason I’m into cards. I stumbled across her blog a few years back, and her clean, layered style immediately appealed to me. She’s also the owner of Verve Stamps.
- Freedom In Creating – Michelle Zindorf
She is the well known “brayer queen” who’s cards are awe inspiring artworks, using only inks, a brayer, lots of post-it notes, and stamps…
- Mish Mash – Michelle Wooderson
Her blog is a recent find for me, and it’s quickly making its way to my top 3 favs. Michelle is an expert with mass producing cards, and also makes great looking notebooks and bookmarks. I love all her stuff.
- Amazing Paper Grace – Becca Feeken
Becca makes these “larger than life” luxurious cards with silk ribbon and lots of layers and textures.
- Ali Edwards
She’s a graphic designer/scrapbooker/mom/expert life liver. She views and captures life in a way that is inspiring and fulfilling.
- Donna Downey
This woman’s approach to life & scrapbooking can only be described as “outside the box”. She puts the capital in Fun.
