We are thrilled to welcome a new designer to the CLASSroom today! Krystie Lee Hersch has a beautiful clean and simple style and she will be sharing it with us here on a regular basis! Being that Krystie lives only about 10 minutes from our office/warehouse we have had the pleasure of getting to know her and her sweet kiddos a little when she stops in to pick up some goodies to create with. Having a designer who lives so near by is always so much fun for us as we anticipate her visits.
It was back in 2008 that Krystie (also known as Krystie Lee) was a Dirty Dozen designer on Splitcoaststampers. You can also see more of Krystie's work on her blog, appropriately titled, Clean and Simple Cards!
We would really appreciate if you would take the time to say hi and welcome Krystie today by leaving a comment below. Of course we will be thanking you for doing so with some special treats that Krystie used in her project today. You have until Tuesday, July 17th at Midnight to leave your comment to be included in our random drawing.
Krystie we are so very lucky to have you here - WELCOME!
It's such a nice surprise to receive an unexpected card in the mail. I am making an effort to send more "just because" cards to friends and family, so that's what I wanted to share with you today.
I find myself reaching for dies on almost every project lately. I wanted to use the birdcage die and a soft yellow color palette to create a cheerful hello card.
I love all of the intricate dies that are coming out now. I recently started using the Memory Box metal adaptor plate when I die cut and it's been working really well for me. Prior to using that, I had been making my own cardstock shims, which were hit and miss. The adaptor plate is easier and I've been getting consistently clean cuts.
The Hearts Delight die makes a cute border and cuts hearts in several sizes...very useful! Felt cuts really easily, just die cut it as you would paper and the results are great.
Thank you so much for stopping by the CLASSroom today!
