Star Guest Designer: Elaine Wakeling

Wow! Are your eyes in for a treat today! Today's Guest Star Designer is Elaine Wakeling, a winner from our Instagram Designer contest. We sent her the whole release and just told her to have fun with it. Oh my goodness, when Elaine sent her projects over, I was floored! I'm going to let her take over right here and show you for herself! Please be sure to leave loads of love in the comments section because she really went all out for us!

Hello All! My name is Elaine and I live just outside of London in the UK. I live with my husband and two young sons. I’ve always loved crafty hobbies and I used to spend a lot of time with my Nan when I was younger and she was super crafty! She was awesome at watercolouring scenes and loved calligraphy. I think I get my love of crafts from her. In 2015 while searching out planner sticker videos on YouTube a Nichol Spohr video popped up as a 'watch next' suggestion and the rest as they say history! I’ve always had a soft spot for card making but it was way back when die cutting machines didn’t exist and before I’d even heard of stamping and copics! Over the last few years I’ve slowly grown my crafty collection and now have a beautiful set of copics, distress inks and cardstock! It is also probably no surprise that at least half of my stamp collection is made up of Mama Elephant stamps & dies. I love the cuteness of all the images and I think the collections all work so well together. I never tire of any of the sets...I still use my Carnival Cupcakes and Honey Bunny stamps as often as I do my more recent ones like Wish Upon a Star. I’m happy to say I’m a cardmaking (and ME) addict! It’s been a complete thrill to work on the 7th Anniversary release and I’ve had to pinch myself every time I’ve sat down to create projects with the newest products. I hope you enjoy my creations, I’ve still many more ideas so I hope to make and share those over the next few weeks. Thanks so so much to Kryssi and Angela for this wonderful opportunity, it’s been a dream come true. Crafty hugs to you all, Elaine x
