Guest Designer; Laura Craigie

How exciting to welcome back Laura Craigie as a Guest Designer on the SRM Blog today.  We love her beautiful creations and can't wait to see what she's done with her stash of SRM products.  By the way, it's Laura's birthday today so let's all wish her a happy birthday!



Here's a bit about Laura in her own words: 

"I live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada with my husband and 3 very busy boys.  I've been scrapbooking and card making for 9 years now, and I love it just as much now as I did then.  I adore making cards because I often don't have too much time to craft and I like that I can sit down and finish a project in a short amount of time.  I have been very blessed in this industry to work with many different companies over the years, as well as being a Garden Girl for Two Peas in a Bucket."

Cards are her passion so Laura took her stash of SRM Stickers and created 6 fabulous cards using a variety of SRM's sticker themes and styles.  Laura uses just a touch of SRM on each of her cards but that's the beauty of SRM Stickers.  Our clear stickers go with any theme or style complementing your project and melting down into any surface you choose.

First up is a thank you card for a teacher, perfect for any time of year.  What fabulous colors and design.  Perfection!  On this card Laura used SRM's Stickers by the Dozen Thank You stickers. 



With all the weddings coming up in June, you might just have to CASE this card that's all about LOVE!  There's a lot to love about this card!  Laura's choice of papers is fabulous and the trio of hearts coming down the right side of the card are darling with their bright embellishments.  Laura used SRM's Wedding Stickers by the Dozen for her "LOVE is..." sentiment and the wedding bouquet.  She embellished the bouquet as well.  {{SIGH}}   



Next up is a patriotic card using just the right papers and embellishments.  And to punctuate her card with just the right sentiment and borders, Laura used SRM's Patriotic We've Got Your Border.  




Which of these 14 borders is your favorite?



This sweet Summery card with it's "Hello Sunshine" border sentiment is great for any time of year!  Laura combines lots of beautiful patterned papers, buttons and clips as embellishments and tops them off with a SRM Sentiment from SRM's Bright We've Got Your Border.  Looks like SRM Borders are a favorite for Laura!


In addition to the "Hello Sunshine" border, you will find 13 other borders on this sheet.  Such a fun product!  They are a bit like Washi tape but lots of designs on one sheet!


In the midst of all these beautiful cards, Laura surprises us with a beautiful Pillow Box that's loaded with SRM Stickers and Twine!  Laura confesses that SRM's Labels by the Dozen are one of her new favorites and she's used several different designs on this project.  Love how she mounted one label on top of the other and them topped it off with a sweet daisy from SRM's Stickers by the Dozen Thank You sheet.  Pink Blossom twine and a pink jewel embellishment are the perfect finishing touches.  



Here's are the two label sheets Laura used.



Speaking of Labels by the Dozen, here's a Thank You card that Laura created using a Black and White Label as matting for her Thank You sentiment from the Stickers by the Dozen collection.  Looks like Laura is mixing and matching her SRM Stickers on each project.  And she'll have plenty of stickers left over for future projects. By the way, do you spy the little "thank you so much" mini sentiment on the tab at the top of this card?



 And for her last card, Laura combines Stickers and Stamping. So many stampers are now choosing SRM Stickers for their sentiment.  The "you make me smile" mini sentiment comes from SRM's Bright border.  I am so inspired by Laura's work.  She is truly one of paper crafting's finest!     


Here's what Laura has to say about SRM Stickers:


"I adore using SRM stickers for their high quality and ease of use.  The clear stickers work great on any surface, even as I discovered some glitter papers.  The label stickers will definitely be a new favourite of mine too with the ability to stamp on them, and ink them up.  I am all about saving time when I craft and these stickers help me to create adorable and quick projects." 

Thank you Laura for all your wonderful projects.  We loved having you here on the blog today! For lots more Laura Craigie inspiration and to see more of her work, visit Laura's Blog: www.paperlulu.com
