Meet our Guest Designer's for Challenge #17
Here are the Guest Designer's beautiful Creations

Lisa GD

My name is Lisa from A Mermaid's Crafts and I'm excited to be a guest designer at Scrapping4funChallenges today! In live in Indiana in the United States. I have been seriously crafting for over thirteen years, having been inspired by the crafting shows on television. I dabbled in several mediums, with my favorite being polymer clay. Once I discovered die cutting, my crafting focus completely changed. I love making cards (I have a serious paper addiction), layouts and home d├ęcor projects for family and friends. I started blogging in March of 2011 and have loved every minute of it. My style is always changing and I love trying new products and techniques.
The techniques I used are stencilling with embossing paste and a stencil, embossing, distressing and inking. 
Have a great day :) Lisa

Sandy GD

Hi! My name is Sandy Sommerfeld.....I live in the beautiful Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Canada with my famulous, wonderful,inspirational husband and our goofy quirky fun-loving American Cocker Spaniel. I am also the designer of a small digital company called Scribbles Designs.

Techniques used: Tearing, Weaving, Folding, Layering and Collage were all used to create this triptych card for Mother's day. The card comprises of one 12x12 double sided card stock to create the card base. Scored and folded at the 4" & 8" mark to create the three pockets. I created a folded over flap where I weaved scraps of the coordinating papers, tore one flap and also created a punch out tab area for one of the pockets. Layers upon layers of papers were sued to give it stability and further dimension. Adding to the card were hand lettered quotes, washi tapes, and a collection of fun embellishments to add further features to the card.

Diana GD

I am married to Jon and we will be celebrating 40 years this August. We were blessed with one son and two daughters and they are the center of our lives. They blessed us with three more children when they took spouses. Then they have blessed us with 11 of the most wonderful grand children anyone could as for! I have always been interested and busy in the craft world since I was a child. My mother was very talented and she spent hours teaching me different crafts and sewing. I started scrapbooking when I had a two grand children because I wanted to make them each a scrapbook from "grammar's perspective". Little did I know I would add three more grands the following year and within another 4 years I had 6 more. Needless to say I will newer complete these 11 albums! lol About 3 years ago a good friend introduced me to the stamping/cardmaking world. Since then I have set the scrapbooks aside and mainly make cards. A couple months ago, I ventured into making mini albums out of chipboard and now seem to be preoccupied with these creations and have to squeeze card makin in. I am not sure where paper crafting is going to take me, but I know it has ben a wonderful adventure so far that fills all my spare time. 
Have a very blessed day
Hugs Diana

 I made the flower card for my son-in-laws gramma who fell and broke her hip. I thought it could be flowers sculpting for the technique and inking.
