Special Guest Star

In the month of February, we are so fortunate to have....

Andie Miller

as our Special Guest Star 


Here's what Andie said about this week's challenge....

-->
Hello City Crafters!  My name is Andrea Miller - I go by Andie.  I am a wife of 22 years to my wonderful husband, Dan, and mother to our two beautiful, talented and smart children, Tim and Katie.  We've made a nice home for ourselves in Chandler, Arizona.  I've crafted and written on my blog, Contagiously Crafty located at viralscrap.blogspot.com, since 2010, but I work full time outside the home at a demanding job.  My job requires lots of commitment and I find that crafting is my stress relief, creative outlet and joy.  I don't often join challenges, but try to hop around the internet leaving comments to encourage others and spread the crafting "bug".   I am thrilled to be able to join you this week as we are inspired by Kirsty's colorful image and the challenge to use some sort of plastic.  I chose to work with a small piece of acryllic and was inspired by the coloring from the picture.  Thank you so much to the City Crafters hosts for asking me to be a guest here this month.  I am so looking forward to working alongside all of you in the challenges.  Now, it's your turn to get crafting!


  Please stop by Andie's blog for more of her beautiful work!

Hi All!  I’m Dana and can’t remember when I haven’t crafted.  I have been making cards since 1996 and paper crafting is my escape.  I’m very fortunate in that my other half supports my passion for paper crafting and he is a talented crafter as well.  I have all but taken over our blog, Crafty Couple, with my paper projects but occasionally share Glen’s work as well.  I am thrilled to be the City Crafter guest designer this week!



Please stop by Dana's blog and leave her some love!

City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 294 ~ Butterfly, my butterfly!

When I was a little girl, I used to sing when my uncle Mark played the guitar, a lot of my favorite song choices today were influenced by him, songs like Roses are red, songs by the beatles and there is this that still stuck to my head today...


Alright, so much of my butterfly song, now back to our challenge this week.
Create a project with butterfly, easy right?
Come play along!

Guest Designer

Please meet.....

Pamellia



Hello Everyone! My name is Pamellia Johnson and I live on Lake Aquitaine in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada with my wonderful husband and our two little girls, Scully (a teacup Maltese) and Pebbles (a teacup black Pomeranian). 


I have been crafting in some form or another since I was a little kid. I've dabbled in a variety of crafts, and my true passion has always been card making. I have recently discovered the world of mixed media and since getting back in touch with nature, I can't resist combining the natural textures of nature with the softness of the shabby chic style.

Thank you so much to the City Crafter team for inviting me to spend the day with them. I am thrilled and honoured to be here with such a talented group of artists. 



I always adore Pamellia's shabby vintage style with lots of pretty layers, this one says it all isn't it? Please stop by Pamellia's blog for more of her beauties!
