Hello and thank you for stopping by today. Today is PaperWings tribute blog hop to The Angel Company and Mischelle Smith, founder.
I have been having a hard time putting to words what The Angel Company has meant to me. See, I became a stamper quite by accident. I was trying to make new friends at work and so I attended a stamp camp by another company and instantly became hooked on stamping. I went online and found a yahoo group where I joined and started doing cards swaps. I joined another yahoo group and met an Angel, and the rest they say is history.
I was a customer for a while and then became a demonstrator...and my life truly changed. I had a creative outlet. I was able to share my love of crafting with others. I have met some amazing people through this outlet. Whether it was teaching workshops, teaching classes in the local stamp store or at a large church event...it has been so full-filling. As I am not sure what I'm going to do right now, I'm going to enjoy the detour....
You should have arrived from Donna's blog....
My first card is one of my new favorites...It's called Mama Wants. I used the We R Memory Keepers Twist Trimmer to do the ruffles. I used More Mimi paper, and copics, and added some Via Decor Pearl pen.
My next card is using Vintage Rides and the yummy Bazzill Smoothies card stock. I was inspired by Angela Kelley's card when I made this....thanks Angela for always having inspiring cards!
This next card uses New Creation....simple card, but so pretty in person. I used Crackle Accents on the clocks....cool product!
This next card uses Modern Mix...and is inspired by Mischelle Smith herself...she had demo'd this set using the chalkboard method and I just had to try it. I actually was video'd coloring this card at an Operation Write Home event by the local tv station.
And my final card is a card my dad and I worked on together. See he likes to stamp with me as well. The set is Good Things...
BLOG Candy.....leave a comment and I will draw one lucky winner to receive a card kit of each of these cards. All you will have to do is color and assemble them. I will draw on Wednesday August 31st at 8pm PST. I will email the winner to get their address.
Thanks so much for stopping by as we pay tribute to the wonderful Angel Company.
