Marisa says she has really enjoys viewing the creations of so many talented people and that she has learned so much from being involved at SplitCoast. Marisa was our guest designer this July.
Vivian Peters http://www.vivlyndesigns.typepad.com/
Vivian was born and raised in Michigan and still lives there. She has been married to her high school sweetheart, Larry, for 37 years. They have one son, Mark and seven – yes - seven cats! She works for a major corporation in the financial department. Her husband is retired and he likes to cook and clean so she loves having him home taking care of things. Hey Viv, can you clone him?
Vivian says creativity has always been a part of her life and played a part in some of her favorite memories. She was intrigued with stamps for years but got addicted in 2005 at a friends Stampin Up! Party and became a “hobby” demonstrator so she could get the discount on more stamping related goodies. She has ventured into using other companies stamps and thank goodness she loves our Clear Art Stamps!
Most of our design team is just starting to get all their new sample products to play with, so you will start seeing lots more creations soon!
Some of you may have seen the FREE little vintage toaster download on my last blog post HERE. Now I have to show you this hilarious card that PammyJo created using the toaster download and the fork stamp from our Kitchen Classics set. I love the way she chalked her toast all burnt up and stabbed it with the fork and added the caption “Ruff Day?” The table cloth she made matches perfectly, using paper from our Radiant Paper Pad. Plus, the yellow panel wall is cool!

Plus, the girls at Splitcoast have a new challenge going on to create a card using products that start with your initials.
It looks like fun and I LOVE all the cool samples they are creating! There are even a couple of cards with our new little witch stamp.
