February Guest Designers

Hi everyone! Well, we have made it through the first month of 2011. Are you still writing 2010 on things? It tends to take me a bit to get out of that habit. I am excited to announce the 2 ladies who will be joining us for the month of February. First, I need to say a fond farewell to our January guest designers and one of our DT members who is moving on.

Thank you to Jennifer Taylor and Pattie Goldman for doing a fabulous job during January. Your cards were beautiful ladies and I really enjoyed them! I would also like to say farewell to Jacquie Peifer who has done a great job designing for us the past 3 months. She is moving on to pursue some other crafting avenues and we wish her the best of luck. Thank you Jacquie for sharing your beautiful designs with us!

The two creative ladies joining us for February are Denise Modin and Claudine Poch. Below, is a little more information about both of them.

Claudine Poch- My name is Claudine Poch (sevencats on Splitcoaststampers.) I live in Ohio with my husband, son, and cats. I have been doing crafts almost my whole life, and paper crafts for about five years. I enjoy making cards, particularly those that contain “critters”, such as cats and dogs. Most of my cards are sold to benefit the no-kill animal shelter where I volunteer. I am currently serving on a few other design teams and am excited to be a guest designer for Sweet n Sassy Stamps.

Denise Modin- Hi! My name is Denise (a.k.a. Denimo) and I live in a wonderful little college town in Lawrence, Kansas, USA. I'm a mom, grandma and dog lover/owner of one black great dane. And I absolutely love card-making. I love how we take a plain piece of card stock, add a stamped or digital image, color it up, create a layout and end up with something wonderful! I've been stamping for probably about 10 years now, but just seriously the last 2-3 years. I take lots of inspiration from many other wonderful artists and hope I can provide a little along the way.

Throughout the month of February, Denise will be sharing her creations with us on Tuesday (except the 1st) and Claudine will be sharing on Saturdays. I look forward to seeing all the awesome designs that they will be inspiring us with! Please join me in welcoming both Denise and Claudine.

You will want to stop by tomorrow as it is release day here at Sweet N Sassy stamps! There are 5 terrific stamps sets that will be available and Korin is going to have some card samples to share with us featuring the new releases.
