Meet our December Guest - Irene Mejia selected and introduced by DT member Sphoorti this time.

Meet Irene, the card-making maestro who kicked off her crafting escapade in Spring 2021. This lady's got skills that'll make your grandma's crochet needles jealous. From clean and simple cards (which, as you know, is totally my jam) to these intricately adorned masterpieces, Irene's got a card for every mood and occasion. Not only is she a card-making wizard, but she's also on various design teams like Honey Bee Stamps and Ink Blot Shop — basically, she's the Beyoncé of our card-making world. But don't let the talent fool you; Irene's heart is as big as her craft stash and her talent. She spreads joy faster than you can say "handmade cards". I'm so thrilled to have her incredible talent gracing our blog as the crafting superhero she is!

Hello! My name is Irene, and I'm a cardmaker from Texas. Die-cutting and Copic coloring are the top of my favorites on my list. When I am not crafting, I like to spend time with my Husband of 18 years and eight-year-old daughter. My second hobby is shopping for and buying craft supplies. I consider myself blessed if I inspire anyone with my projects!

Meet our November Guest  - Marcia Hill selected by DT member Lisa Elton this time.  A visit to Marcia's blog is a visual treat. Her paper works of art include beautiful florals, CAS designs, marvelous clean layers with cards of cuteness tucked in here and there. She's a sweet friend who loves a good die cut as much as I do! I'm always inspired by her designs!

I live in the wonderful state of Michigan with my husband, 3 daughters, and 4 grands. I have been stamping since 1999, and started my blog in 2008 to be able to play along in challenges. My style has evolved over the years and I am pretty much a CAS stamper now, but love trying all kinds of techniques and card styles. I'm hopelessly addicted to card making and have no desire to be cured!

PSC#108 Old School - This month we're going back to basics!  We want you to go "Old School" and dust off some crafty supplies you haven't used in a while or bring back a technique that used to be more popular like "smooshing" and "kiss" stamping.  Maybe you have some old brads, eyelets, buttons or ribbon you can add to a design!  Alternately this challenge can be a "back to school" encouragement or thanks for a student or your favorite teacher.   

We welcome home décor, page layouts, tags and everything in between!  It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps die on your project!  You must use a Poppystamps product to be eligible to win! 

Need a little inspiration?  Here are some samples from our design team.  Want a closer look?   No worries.. we'll be featuring these projects on Wednesdays throughout the month, so you can see how each project was created.

Meet our September Guest Karen Letchworth selected by Jeanne this time.  I'm impressed with Karen's designs because she has such a a great sense of style!  Each of her designs is a unique and beautiful one of a kind with great details like the addition of felt, ribbon, twine or other embellishment that make each one extra special.   I love that she's not afraid to take chances and I sort of feel like she can do it all.. coloring, layering, die cutting.. you name it!

Meet our August guest, Karen Downs who was selected by design team member Janet Katz.  I noticed Karen's Instagram page a few months ago and was super impressed with her knack for combining color and die cuts with clean and simple design. Add to this her expertise in using solid color cardstock and vellum

 I have been a crafter in some form since childhood and making cards as long as I can remember. I love to make Clean and Simple cards and definitely love to make rainbow cards or at least incorporate rainbows when I can. They make me happy!

My name is Beatriz Jennings, I fell in love with scrapbooking when I was looking through a magazine and saw all of the beautiful things that you can do with paper. Right now I'm in love with card making, mini albums, digital images and altered art. I have been scrapbooking for more than 17 years. I love to use ribbon, buttons, and flowers on most of my creations. I don't know how to describe my style, but some people say that is a little bit romantic, feminine, and shabby Chic.
