Guest Designer; Julie Campbell

Please welcome Guest Designer, Julie Campbell!  What a treat to have this super talented crafter join us on the blog today!  


I'm a 30-something mom to two energetic boys, married to one pretty awesome guy. We live in an old farm house in rural Indiana, where we see almost as many tractors pass by as cars.

I work part-time as an operating room nurse at a pediatric hospital, but I’d rather be stitching on paper than people.  Being creative energizes my spirit & I love the instant gratification that card making brings.  When I have extra time, I love creating Project Life-style albums & mini books of our family.


You can find some of my projects on my blog.  I’m also on the Creative Team for Studio Calico & a Garden Girl for Two Peas In a Bucket.


We are thrilled to showcase Julie's wonderful work with SRM Stickers and Clear Pillow Boxes, her Copics and just a touch of twine!   First up is this beautiful homespun card using a crocheted piece that Julie had in her stash.  She mounted a SRM Stickers by the Dozen wedding image onto a Black & White Labels by the Dozen to make the flowers stand out. Then she colored the roses with her Copics.  Check out the little black and white scalloped border at the bottom from SRM's Wedding Borders.  And Julie tops off her card with some charcoal twine from The Twinery!  YUM!


Next Julie created this delicious clear pillow box adding texture with burlap and twine.  She created a tag using a new Made By Labels by the Dozen.  And notice the little "stitching" on the box?  That's from SRM's new Sticker Stitches.  Such a fun product with 17 different stitches from which to choose!


So put them both together, add some homemade cookies to the box and you have a perfect little thank you or gift for a neighbor.  


Here's what Julie has to say about working with SRM Sticker products:

"I love working with SRM stickers.  I was so surprised the first time that I used them.  The edges of the stickers just “melted” onto the paper, making it hard to tell that I had used a sticker at all!  I especially love the border stickers.  They come in so many fun colors & designs."

In celebration of Julie's guest spot here at SRM Stickers, we'd like to host a GIVEAWAY!  Leave a comment on this post (make sure you're a follower first!) and we'll choose a winner to receive a prize packet that includes all of the SRM products that Julie used in her projects including pillow boxes, Stickers by the Dozen, Labels by the Dozen, Sticker Stitches and Twine!
