Well, today is another brilliant day for Guest Designers! Kristen Hermanny is going to show us how to creat a very cool project that is versatile and easily altered for many occassions. A very special door hanger, with a very special message.
I asked Kristen to give us some information about herself and here is what she had to say...
I am bluntly honest, yet a very good friend!
I love mixing the papers. I also love knowing that people love receiving the cards I make.
Tools that I can not live without are my crop-a-dile. And my Scor Pal.
I'm not a patient crafter. Anything that I have to wait for... if it has to dry overnight, or at least a few hours, I don’t like that.
Inspiration is something I get when I people watch!
When it comes to colors, I love sage and lavender. I also like brown and sage. I love green and anything together, I would have to say.
As far as a crafting style goes... I go through transitions all the time, I think I have a definite style, but I don’t know what to call it. Arty-eclectic maybe? I tend to keep the recipient in mind most of the time.
I love to take classes, and plan on taking quite a few this coming year. I would like to get recognized for my digi-stamps someday, I am thinking of going back to school and do something with my creative self.
I like the camaraderie that goes on at DCRU's DT Blog. All the artists, design team, and people becoming friends through their love of creativity. I also love the variance of all the styles. There is inspiration at every corner!!!
I do, I work with Compassionate Cards out of Gig Harbor, Washington. Each month there is a new mission and Julie (the wonderful woman who runs the program) sends the cards out to a designated site. One month it was a group called Still Someone. All the cards went to elderly people that do not get visitors. This month the cards are going to a domestic violence center in New York City. http://compassionatecards.blogspot.com// is her link.
Here is Kristen's tutorial:
Isn't that a really neat project and I love her theme..."Summer in Winter Bar-B-Q". I think we could all use a little summer right now. Thanks so much Kristen for sharing this tutorial with us and for all the time you put into it.
If you didn't catch all of the great products that Kristen used from DCRU here is a list:
