Guest Designers at Dynamic Duos

Wow, so far the submissions this week have been coming in and they look amazing! There are so many consistent players who have been joining us week by week...thank you for playing along and for making our challenge fun!

Anne Marie and I went over the past 16 Challenges and we decided to invite three guest designers to join us for the month of September! These ladies are all new to a design team, they have all been playing along with us and they are stunning crafters!

We would like to introduce and welcome September's Guest Designing Dynamos...Allyson, Karen and Michelle!

Hi!  My name is Allyson Andersen.  I am a mid-life girl who lives in a quiet little Utah suburb, surrounded by farmland.  My husband and I married in 2001, and we are homeschooling parents of 3 young children.  I began basic card making in 2003 when introduced to it during a local church women’s group meeting.  I’ve taken up the hobby more seriously - i.e. spending a ridiculous amount of money on supplies! - only in the last 5 years.  I’ve been blogging about my creative pursuits since January 2011.  This is my first experience like this with a challenge blog, and I am very excited to be a guest designer at Dynamic Duos!

Greetings from beautiful Alberta Canada. I bought my first rubber stamp when my son was 3 weeks old, and I've been stamping and making cards ever since. He is now 23 - so I haven't purchased a greeting card since 1989. My husband and I love to spend time at our cabin in the mountains, with our three dogs. Our 3 children are all out on their own, and we welcomed our 2nd grandchild in July!  I don't have a definitive style since I like so many different looks, but I prefer to make 'Mail Friendly' cards and I do love foam tape. I'm really excited to be playing with the talented Design Team for September!


Hello there! First, let me say how happy I am to be here with such talented ladies. Thank you! My name is Michelle and I live in New York City. My husband and I have three wonderful children! My two favorite things are stamps and pattern papers. Anytime I can incorporate the two I am very happy!  I began cardmaking almost three years ago and shortly after that I stared my Blog. I have been addicted ever since!

Thank you ladies! We are looking forward to having you on the team with us for September.
