We are thrilled to welcome Betsy Veldman to the SRM Blog as our Guest Designer of the Week. Betsy is a paper crafter extraordinaire and we love that she loves her SRM Stickers!
"I live in a small town in the NW corner of Iowa with my husband of 15 years and our three kids, ages 12, 9, and 5. Making stuff has always been a big part of my life, ever since I was a little girl digging through my mom's boxes of fabric scraps...it seems to be a trait that has been passed down through many generations of women in my family! Today I love stamping, card making, a bit of scrapbooking, as well as sewing. My daughters seem to have caught the creativity bug as well and we love to craft together. I currently work as one of the Paper Crafts magazine Go-to Gals, and I am also on design teams for Papertrey Ink, Pink Paislee, and Anna Griffin."
Betsy loves to combine paper, stamps and stickers just like she's done on this wonderful, bright and beautiful card. Who would not love receiving this "happy" birthday card? The twine and felt embellishments are perfection! Love how Betsy stamped Happy Birthday on SRM's new Labels by the Dozen Bright collection.
She loves those labels and the Sticker Stitches as well!
Here's an envelope that Betsy crafted using the same papers as she used on her card and added SRM Labels by the Dozen, Sticker Stitches, Marigold Twine and felt flowers. What a fun way to coordinate the card and the envelope. If you need to make a birthday card soon, why not CASE Betsy's card and envelope and dazzle your friends & family!
Betsy is loving the SRM Pillow Boxes as the perfect little treat holder. This bright and beautiful project is perfectly coordinated to her card and envelope. For this project Betsy took all 3 sizes of Pillow Boxes, filled them with bright candies, tied them all together with patterned papers and twine and used a pair of lovely Labels by the Dozen. Then she embellished them with those felt flowers and a touch of twine. YUM!
Put them all together and you have a perfect trio of treats!
Thank you Betsy for joining us today with your extraordinary talent. Here's what Betsy has to say about SRM Stickers:
"SRM Stickers are the great finishing touch to any project! The selection of sentiments make them perfect for card makers. And the new labels like the ones I used on my project today are perfect for stamping on. I also like the stitched border stickers, which make it so easy to add the look of stitching to my projects without having to pull out my sewing machine. Thank you, SRM, for letting me be your guest today!"
