Please welcome the super awesome
Hi, my name is Annette Allen and I am so excited to be guest designing for Cas-ual Fridays Stamps this month. I live in Colorado and am a stay at home wife who loves the Lord. I have been crafting since 1997 and I do not just make cards but also enjoy sewing, scrapbooking and various other crafts. I think if it involves glue you could say that I love it. I have been married for 20 years to a wonderful man. My passion is crafting and I love being inspired and also inspiring others. Thank you for having me and I look forward to the many new friendships along my crafting journey. Happy Crafting!
How did you get introduced to stamping?
I was first introduced when I lived in Germany. Many of the Air Force wives were involved in Stamp-In Up and invited me to a party. At first I thought wow there is no way I would do this. I thought it was too expensive to buy the supplies to make a card. But then I got invited again and well you can say that was all it took. I have been addicted sense.
Do you scream on roller coasters?
Oh I totally scream on roller coasters, but I love it. I usually loose my voice by time the day is over. What a rush!
Favorite crafting tool of all time?
Well I have a couple but if I had to choose one it would be the Misti. I purchased it now really knowing that I would love it so much. Let's just say it is my best friend when it comes to stamping sentiments.
What is on your perfect pizza
Well I might be a little boring when it comes to Pizza. I am a Pepperoni and Cheese only person.
How many hours do you spend each week on Pinterest?
Well I love Pinterest but do not spend much time on it. Only when I need something like a recipe or fun decorating idea. So I would say maybe two hours a week.
If you could go back to any time in history, who would you like to meet?
If I could go back I would say my great-grandmother. I hear amazing stories about her and wish I could have met her.
My favorite crafty trend or technique right now is...
I am totally loving the shaker cards. I am having fun taking advantage of them being in right now. Well that is now that I know how to make them.
My favorite occasion to make a card for is...
My favorite occasion is Birthdays. I think that most people just get so excited on there birthdays and to receiving a homemade card is just another thing to get excited about on your birthday.
Annette created 2 totally gorgeous cards using our Mon Ami
I love the wonderful coloring job she did!
The bright bold colors are yummy and the little white gel dots are so cute!
Such a fun way to use these Mon Ami Fleur Fri-Dies.
The little flower clusters at either corner of the card are super cute!
Annette will be back again tomorrow with more super cute projects!
We'll see ya then!
