Here is what  Lynn had to say:
We always love seeing how each of you were inspired to play along!  When I saw Jacquie's card, I was immediately drawn to the texture she created. The embossing and felt look fabulous together. And the sweet little trio of bunnies are absolutely adorable.

After our second year celebration, I realized how important it is to have guest designers. ­čśŐIt is nice to celebrate the work of others out there and to celebrate our faithful followers.


We hope that you enjoy as we highlight a different creative designer each month! Kimberly Wiener is our new Guest Designer Coordinator and she will be inviting a special guest each month to join us! Thank you so much, Kimberly!


Guest Designer
Kate Lorenzini

Hello there!  I'm Kate of Pinned & Penned and thrilled to be guest designing for the month of March with these talented designers!  Fusion has been a favorite challenge of mine since I joined the fabulous community of online paper crafters a little over three years ago.  In addition to making cards and sewing, I have recently begun creating hybrid layouts that integrate digital papers and stamps with my physical materials.  Making the time to be creative every day is a goal of mine in 2016.  When I am not in my studio playing with paper or fabric, I work with students and families as an independent educator and consultant specializing in dyslexia, dysgraphia, and ADHD.  I was raised in upstate New York, but have called the inspiring city of Seattle home for almost 15 years, and am lucky to have some pretty awesome gals to craft with on a regular basis! Thanks so much for having me, Fusion!!
