Challenge #163 Designer's Choice



Welcome back to Inkspirational . Our new challenge has been chosen by Nonni and she wants us to use small stamps. 
Guidelines : use small stamps to create your design -stamps smaller than 2 inch diameter. (eg coin sized) . You may use one or two large stamps (eg sentiment) but the majority of your design should be small stamps. 

Please welcome our Guest Designer:

Valerie 


Hello! My name is Valérie, I am 37 years old and I live in Switzerland with my husband Benjamin and my three guinea pigs Jinxie, Ayla and Vaila. I work part-time at a law firm as an all-rounder but my real passion is cardmaking and scrapbooking. My style is clean and simple and I love cute stamps. I started with scrapbooking and making mini albums in 2007 and started my blog in 2010. I design for Scraphouse (a Swiss scrapbooking store) and several challenge blogs. When I don't craft I love reading, fashion and travelling.
My blog is Le Scrap de Vava : http://lescrapdevava.blogspot.ch/

Welcome back to Inkspirational . Our new challenge is to use the word 'power' as inspiration. 

Please welcome our Guest Designer:

Angie

Hello!  My name is Angie and I am thrilled and honored to be guest designing today for the Inkspirational “Power” Challenge. 
I’m a semi-retired music teacher living with my sweet husband in a suburb in Texas.  When I’m not in my craft cave, I’m having tons of fun helping music students and their directors in schools in the area.   We have 4 grown children and 5 awesome grandchildren.  I’ve always enjoyed crafting but about 3 years ago, I discovered card making, and was immediately hooked!  I love trying new techniques and learning from the many talented artists in the paper crafting world.   Please visit me here on Instagram and on my blog:  Cimbacreativefun

Thanks Marina and the DT for inviting me! I can’t wait for you to get inky and see what you make for the Inkspirational “Power” challenge!
