0 Comments

Happy Monday, GB fans and friends!

Today we are so excited to bring our guest designer feature back. Each month we will be featuring a domestic and an international crafter who has caught our eye.

We will showcase them here so that you can be inspired by their creativity and talent!

Our first international guest designer is Anke Kramer from Germany. We first noticed Anke in our design team call and we fell in love with her bright and beautiful projects.

A bit about Anke in her own words:

My name is Anke and I live in a small town in northern Germany together with my husband and our dog. Being creative has always been an important part of my life. Since my childhood I love painting and paper crafting .

The first time I got in touch with scrapbooking was in 2011 when I worked on an album about one of my husband’s sailing trips. I found some creative blogs and scrapbook shops and I immediately fell in love with all those pretty papers and embellishments. My favorite subjects are sailing, my dog and the little moments of our everyday life.

My favorite supplies are my sewing machine, dies, my Cameo and every kind of paint and color. I also like to add some mixed media accents to my projects using stencils and modeling paste. Besides scrapbooking I love painting, reading, playing guitar and long walks with my dog.

I’m very excited to be guest designer this month!

Up first, Heather Kell. Heather has been rocking her Happy Planner™ on Instagram, and that’s where we noticed her (link below). She’s super organized AND super creative, and that happens to be our favorite combination!

A bit about Heather in her own words:

 
unnamed

I’m Heather Kell and I live in DFW, Texas. During the day I’m an Instructional Technology Specialist at an elementary school, but at night I love to come home and dive into my paper world. I love crafting with paper, and I am addicted to decorative planning. I have found that a pretty but practical planner keeps my life organized yet fun! I love sharing what I create with others, so be sure you’re following me on my social media accounts so that you don’t miss a thing!

I am so excited to be a guest designer this month for Gossamer Blue! I loved using their March Planner Kit in my Happy Planner™!

The green, coral, and orange combo was to die for. I loved using the paper to accent important “to dos” for the week.

I used my tape runner to turn the die cuts into stickers.

I loved the washi strips for extra accents!

I think my favorite part of the kit was the enamel dots. They add the perfect touch to my planner!

Earlier this month we introduced you to our amazing May guest designer…Enza Gudor.

Today Enza is back with more beautiful work and some tips and thoughts about each project.

Enjoy!

Traveler's Notebook Main

I love the smaller size of this traveler’s notebook I created. It makes it easier to document little moments without having to create a full page.

Traveler's Notebook 2

I use mine for pictures or stories that I want to carry with me every day. That’s why I decided to use the ‘Today’ stamp multiple times on my opening page, to give the idea of what the TN is about.

Traveler's Notebook 1 (2)

Here and Now

I’m in love with this picture of my girls resting together after a day at the park. I knew I wanted to make a colorful yet dreamy layout. For this page I used one of the exclusive April cut files. I enlarged it to fit most of the page and backed it with patterned papers from the Fancy Free collection.

My heart is full

For this layout I used one of the exclusive May printables as a title. I transformed it into a cut file and just hand-stitched the letters to the page. I like how delicate this page turned out.
