Shawna will be our Guest DT until January! Many thanks to say Yes to Monika`s question and we are so happy to have you as our GDT Shawna.

Here's a little bit about her...

"Hello, my name is Shawna Standish from TheGrandStampede. I am so happy to be Creative with Stamps guest designer for the next coming months. So, how did I start this obsession with stamping and cardmaking? Well, it started off on a grim note.

I was told in 2013 that I have lost sight in my periphery and center vision. The doctors said it may progress to complete blindness. Fortunately, after seeing a number of specialists it was determined my blindness occurred earlier in life. Yes, the disease might progress, but I have chosen to think positively and not dwell on what ‘might’ happen.

During this time, I started to look at the world in a different way. It was full of colors, shapes, light, and elements. It all looked so clear to me. I wanted to soak it all up.

I was so inspired by my ‘new’ sight, that I acquired an immense amount of creative energy. I had to get out, somehow? It was then I discovered stamping. I was hooked and wanted to share my love for crafting with others who felt the same way. So, 2014 I started my blog TheGrandStampede. I entered some challenges and was so inspired by everyone’s art and wonderful comments, I knew I had to do more.

Which brings me here. Currently, I am on four design teams and am loving it! Creating with a team is so wonderfully creative and dynamic! We can only see what the future brings by learning and creating! That should do it for me. I would like to thank Creative with Stamps again for this tremendous opportunity and I will surely have loads of fun in the next coming months.

If you haven’t already done so, I encourage you to check out my blog TheGrandStampede and become a follower. I only hope you get as much inspiration from me as I have from all of you. Thank you again to all and happy crafting!"
