What a treat to welcome Michele Kovack back to the SRM Blog today as our Guest Designer of the week. Michele is a paper crafter extraordinaire. She is crazy for her Cricut and we love it when she takes her SRM Stickers, TUBES, Twine and Glassine Bags along for the ride!
Here's how Michele describes herself:
"Hi! My name is Michele Kovack and I am thrilled to be guest designing for SRM Stickers! Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am a wife of almost 20 years to my high school sweetheart, Brian. He is my biggest cheer leader and supporter of me and this crazy hobby! I am a mother to two teenagers, Cortney 18, and Kyle 16. I also teach 5th grade and have been with the same school district for the last 18 years. I love my "day job!" I have two dogs, Myla and Skippers. Both were rescued, one from a mill, and the other from a local animal shelter.
I started scrapbooking right after the birth of my daughter, Cortney. She was born with severe mental and physical challenges. It became a way for me to heal and focus on the things she could do. (I thought it would be cheaper than therapy.....but maybe I was wrong? ;) When my son was born two years later, I was up to my eyeballs with craft supplies, and card making was a natural progression for me. I discovered blogging in 2006 and was immediately hooked! My blog,"Thoughts of a Cardmaking Scrapbooker!" became a place to share my projects, family, and connect with other people who had the same interests.
And here's what Michele says about SRM Stickers.
I discovered SRM stickers several years ago and loved how easy they were to use. They became a staple in my craft stash. I've also been lucky enough to meet Susan in person, and she is as sweet as can be! When I was invited to guest design, I immediately jumped at the chance!"
For her projects Michele chose beautiful vibrant colors with the look and feel of Spring! First up is a die cut Thank You card that Michele made using a Silhouette cut. For the sentiment, Michele uses SRM's Stickers by the Dozen Thank You. Love how this card shimmers and shines!
Keeping in the bold and vibrant pinks and yellows, Michele created a fabulous treat bag using one of SRM's Glassine Bags, creating the lemon wedges using her Cricut. Love the glitter on the lemon and how Michele trimmed a daisy sticker and added glitter to the center. The "you make me smile" sentiment is from SRM's new Bright Borders. And the twine is The Twinery's Pink Sorbet.
Michele created this sweet trio of little treat jars filled with candies using Spring colors that are just a bit more muted. She decorated them with felt flowers, a touch of color coordinated twine and little banner with a sentiment from SRM's Pastel Borders.
Then covered the tops with fabric and added SRM daisy Stickers by the Dozen with color coordinated centers. How totally delicious!
Thank you Michele for inspiring us with your beautiful creations.
