Excited to Introduce…

Yes, that’s right! My sweet and amazingly talented friend Laurie Willison and are are teaming up this week to bring you five projects a piece to inspire you and show off our favorite companies and products.

If you’re not already familiar with Laurie, you should be! Not only is she super creative and talented, but she’s a total sweetheart as well. Here’s a little more about her:

HI, I’m Laurie and I am from Kansas.  At this point in life, I am a mostly SAHM and a part time RN at our local Clinic.  I have a 6 yr old and a 2 year old that keep me super busy!  I started scrapbooking in 1998 and started card making in 2007.  Since then my scrapbooks have been sadly neglected!  Card making is my stress relief and I am so very addicted at this point!  I sell my cards a a local store and to customers here in my town!  I design for DeNami, an online rubber stamp company!  I am also a blogger!  You can check out my blog at www.soapboxcreations.blogspot.com.  Thanks for joining Britta and I this week!  We have lots of fun stuff up our sleeves!

So exciting! Today, we’re using this stamp set from Hero Arts:

Here’s what I created:
