Guest Designer, Kim Kesti

We are incredibly honored to have Kim Kesti join us for a day on the SRM Stickers Blog. Kim has made her mark as a Paper Crafts Magazing Go-To Gal and continually inspired its readers with her creations.

First off, a bit about Kim and her experience with SRM Stickers;

Hey there! My name is Kim Kesti and I’m officially addicted to paper crafting. Scrapbooking and Card Making are my two favorite hobbies and I’m lucky enough to work with Paper Crafts Magazine as a Go-to Gal which fuels my addiction!

As a mother of eight I’m constantly looking for ways to make my life easier. That’s why I was so excited to get a hold of some SRM Stickers; the quality and variety definitely make card making quick and easy. I also like to figure out ways to use older products in new ways. I was thrilled to see that SRM’s cute little circular stickers matched up perfectly with some metal rimmed tags I had hanging around. A simple background paired with these great sentiments gave my cards a professional, graphic look. In fact, the first card came together so easily, I made two more using the same formula. Awesome!

Thanks so much for letting me share my creative effort. Be sure to check our Paper Crafts blog and my personal blog for lots of inspiration;
