I've been paper crafting since 2011. I love to make cards, especially for kids and 3-d paper crafts. Recently I am enjoying creating layouts and coloring with my Spectrum Noir Markers, which I continue to practice.I am super excited to be a Guest Designer at Crafting By Designs.

 Lynn from Lynnpenguin's Creative Corner
My name is Lynn and I am known in blogland and crafty circles as Lynnpenguin.  As my name may indicate I love penguins.  I also love crafting and creating all sorts of things.  Over the last few years I've enjoyed playing with digital images and colouring and of course being on a few DTs and also being a Guest Designer here and there in blogland.  I appreciate the opportunity to showcase one of my creations this month at Crafting by Designs. My style is CAS and I do love colouring a wide variety of images/deisgns.  I'm showcasing an Aurora Wings image called GARLAND SPRITE here today.  I hope you like it.

I am exploring mixed media more at present, but essentially really enjoying all aspects of craft.

Miranda from M. Miranda Creations
Hi, my name is Melissa Miranda from M Miranda Creations and I am so happy to be joining the Crafting by Designs DT for this challenge. Anything Goes is my favorite!!! I have been paper crafting for about 20 years, but it wasn’t until I bought my first electronic die cutting machine that I really found my niche. I enjoy 3D crafts and card making. And occasionally I will put together a scrapbook page. I love trying new techniques as I get the chance, but paper piecing will always be my favorite I think. I truly believe that there is nothing as much fun as taking flat pieces of paper and bringing them to life. I hope you enjoy my card today and that you will stop by my blog as you can! And I can’t wait to see all your super fun creations this month as well! Blessings!
