From The Heart Stamps October Blog Hop - Meet The Design Team!

It's the Blog Hop!  And this month it's all about meeting the existing team for From The Heart Stamps and also those of us that have been lucky to be selected for a six month term!

As you hop from blog to blog don't forget to leave a comment as we will all be selecting a random comment to win and image of choice from the store plus there will be a game with prizes on the FTHS blog!

So, a few things about me:

I've had a painting exhibited in a gallery.  It was quite a tough selection panel and I was lucky that mine got through to the exhibition and on my first try too!
I use Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Aquamarkers plus from time to time use Watercolour Pencils to colour the images I choose.  And I used to use felt-tips before I found Promarkers!
I love the Birdbrains in the store!
My crafting space is the dining room table – no real dedicated space however, lets say that its a very rare occasion when we get to all sit at the table with all my craft stuff tided away!
I save the containers that sprinkles come in (the things you can shake on to the top of ice-cream) as I keep my rather large (and growing) stash of half pearls in them…..!
The image I've chosen is Snow Girl which is image number 6 in the Project 100 Snowmen.  I really do enjoy making pop up boxes although I don't make them often enough.  This one will have a personal message added on the front flap - my cousin asked me to make a special card for her daughter who will celebrate her first Christmas this year!

I've used Promarkers to colour plus dotted liquid pearls around the edges of each of the panels.  Ribbons and charms are from my stash and the snowflakes are cut with Sizzix and Marianne Creatables dies and I've layered them up.  The large snowflake on the back panel is a Memory Box, cut twice and layered.  Bunting I've hand cut and wrote plus added the bows from another Memory Box die.

As this is a blog hop and if you've hopped from the beginning then you are nearly complete as I am the last link!  You should have arrived at me from Michelle so if you've randomly found me, then please start at the beginning so you don't miss anything!

So before you go, please leave me a comment and then hop over to the FTHS blog and leave your final comment.  The hop will end on Monday 5 October at 6am EST and the list of winners will be posted on the blog on Wednesday 7 October.

Good luck!!

    It looks like that our crafting areas are similar. I also have no extra room - only a small space. That's why I have to clean up everything ;-)

  33. Ruth you pulled out all of the stops on this one - I LOVE it!! It is sweet and precious - Your cousin is going to love it too (what little girl wouldn't!) I think the date charm is the perfect touch and those liquid pearl drops are great(I can't ever get those to look right for some reason) It was fun to learn a little about you too - a real artist in our midst:) I am so glad you are on the team!
