Diane from Nellies Nest
Hi, I am Diane from Michigan and my blog is Nellies Nest, which is named after my beloved dog Nellie, that I just lost last very sad!  I have been paper crafting for so long I can't even remember when I began, but I started out like most, doing scrap booking. I love every aspect of creating with paper and my style is what I call a 'mood style'...just whatever "mood" hits me at the!!  I am showcasing a card today made with a die from Spellbinders that just came in the mail today...thank you to Crafting By Designs for inviting me to guest design!

Aurora from The Miller's Daughter

Pamellia from My Little Craft Things

Hello Everyone! My name is Pamellia Johnson and I live on Lake Aquitaine in Ontario, Canada with my wonderful husband, our two little girls, Scully (a teacup Maltese) and Pebbles (a teacup black Pomeranian), and more recently, a family of adorable squirrels as well. I have been crafting in some form or another ever since I was a little kid, thanks to my very creative and talented Mom. I've dabbled in all sorts of crafts, but I think what I enjoy making the most is handmade cards. I really love doing shabby chic projects with tons of lace, pearls, flowers and a few touches of mixed media! Thank you so much to Doris for inviting me to spend the day with you all, it's a pleasure and an honour! I do hope you will join us for this wonderful challenge.

Sara from Sarascloset

My name is Sara Emily Barker aka sarascloset.  I have been crafting on and off all my life, and I like to try just about any type of art or craft.  I'm not sure at this point if I have a favorite, but I do love vintage/grunge. I'm honored to be here as Guest Designer today!

Gunn-Eirill from Gunn-Eirill's Paper Magic
Hi, my name is Gunn-Eirill. I live in a small town south in Norway with my hubby and have 3 beautiful children.  When I was six years old I started to sew my own clothes and my interest for sewing keeped on, and I graduite as a tailor in 1990. I have always been crafting and in 2007 I started to play with papers and flowers. I made some cards an layouts, but in 2012 it did became more than a hobby. It became a lifestyle a passion and maybe an obsession. I make 3D, alter, home deco, cards, layouts, mixed media and of the page.  Today I am Designer over at Wild Orchid Crafts and in my fabuluose local crafting store. We do all have our favorite things to do or work with, and mine favourite things are flowers, papers from Graphic 45 and RX glue (liquid glue).  I am delighted to be a Guest Designer at Crafting by Design.
