Guest Designer, Carolyn King

We are so excited to feature our first Guest Designer of 2011, Carolyn King whose style is so clean and crisp and wonderful. Carolyn admittedly loves her SRM so we loaded her up with all the new stickers just released and she put together an amazing assortment of cards. We are so thrilled to share Carolyn's creations with you today! We LOVE her work!

Firstly, a bit about Carolyn: My name is Carolyn King (or Cammie!) and I live in sunny Texas with my husband and three children. I love all things crafty but am most drawn to the paper arts--designing cards, altered items and scrapbook pages. I love this hobby and the amazing people I have met through it. Thank you so much SRM for asking me to be a guest designer. I LOVE my SRM stickers!!! You can see more of my work on my personal blog:

For her cards Carolyn used several of our new Sticker Sentiments. The first 2 cards use the Wishing You Well design. Wouldn't you love to receive one of these warm and heartfelt cards?

And the next 2 cards use the Congratulations design. The sentiments are perfect for so many different occasions.

We love this beautiful banner card using SRM's Life is Good design. What a happy and uplifting card it is!

And for her final card, Carolyn used SRM's new Mother Quick Card. It's just perfect for Mother's Day!

Beautiful work Carolyn. We are honored to have you Guest Designing with us this month! What's on tap for the rest of the week? We'll be sending lots of layouts, cards, TUBES and the new MAGIC WAND your way and all projects will be using new SRM Stickers introduced at Winter CHA. Hope you can join us for all the fun and inspiration!

Designer Melanie Jarocki

Please welcome Melanie Jarocki to the 2011 SRM Stickers Design Team!

I live just east of Seattle in a valley near the mountains with my husband and 5 children. Scrapbooking and card making have been hobbies of mine for over a decade now. I love creating special projects for my family and friends. When I'm not paper-crafting, doing laundry, or carpooling, I enjoy reading with my kids, playing board games, and baking. And sometimes I like to just sit in the backyard and look at the mountains. It is such a thrill to be on the SRM stickers 2011 Design Team! I'm really looking forward to the year ahead creating with SRM products.

Melanie used the following SRM product for her banner;

Express Yourself #42026 Valentine
Express Yourself #42038 Everyday Life
Sticker Sentiments #51004 Love
Say It With Stickers #39037 Valentine

You can view more Melanie's work by visiting her blog, click HERE.

Here's a fantastic take on a Valentine Tube by Renee! Wouldn't it be perfect for the man in your life?

See you again tomorrow with another introduction, a fresh new project, and another Valentine Tube!

Designer Amy Crockett

Please welcome Amy Crocket to the 2011 SRM Stickers Design Team!

I have always had a passion for arts and crafts. I was introduced into the world of paper crafting about 8 years ago and I have been hooked ever since. I am lucky that I can be a stay-at-home mom to my three adorable children who enjoy crafting right along side me. I also love to cook and bake (I am always trying out new and exciting recipes), as well as reading, family history research, camping, hiking, and fishing. I am very honored to be a part of the SRM Stickers Design Team.

You can view more of Amy's work at her blog by clicking HERE.

We also have Valentine tubes to showcase today! Both of today's projects use SRM's We've Got Your Sticker "Sweet"... and here's Virginia's loveley pair of candy-filled tubes. Love the hanging handmade charms!

We have another Designer introduction for you tomorrow along with more Tubes!

Designer Kimberly Arledge

Please welcome Kimberly Arledge to the 2011 SRM Stickers Design Team!

My name is Kim Arledge. My family and I live in the big ol' state of Texas. I have 3 beautiful children and a husband who is extemely supportive and my best friend.

In 2006, I began to dabble with scrapbooking and quickly became obsessed. Over the past few years I have tapped into a part of myself that I did not even know I had and I am so thankful that I have found something that I am so passionate about. More importantly, I am creating memories for my kids to treasure for years to come. If you don't find me in my scraproom, you will find me online talking, researching, or obsessing about scrap stuff. My scrapbooking style is still evolving because I am always up for new challenges. For the most part, I want my pictures to tell the story.

Other than my love for paper crafting, I am a voracious reader and continue to study and improve my skills in photography. Coffee is my drug of choice and I always love a great football game when it comes to LSU or the Saints. I'm a southern girl to the bone and love my Louisiana roots. I am beyond thrilled to be a part of the SRM team and am so thankful to have been chosen to work with this amazing company!

Kimberly used "Everyday Girl" SRM Stickers on her layout. You can view more of her work on her blog by clicking HERE. I have another introduction tomorrow along with a Valentine tube!

Designer Tanya Tahir

Please welcome Tanya Tahir to the 2011 SRM Stickers Design Team!

Hi, I’m Tanya and I live in Perth, Australia with my husband and our two beautiful, fun-loving little boys. I started papercrafting in 2005 and in the past three years I have become very passionate about card making and scrapbooking and usually do something scrap-related every day! I love layering, 3 dimensional and stitching, and you will find at least one of these on each project that I create. I love bold brights, but I also dabble in vintage and pretty soft colours, it all depends on my mood and inspiration. In my "spare" time I enjoy photography, travelling, reading and spending time with my family. I am so thrilled and excited to be part of the 2011 design team for SRM Stickers!

Tanya used one of our new releases for her layout, Sticker Sentiments #51014 Life is Good which you can purchase by clicking HERE. You can view more of Tanya's work at her Blog by clicking HERE.
