Freebie Friday

Can you believe December is just around the corner?  How this year has FLOWN by and so has our time with our October/November Guest Designers Damaris Velazquez and  Sarah Taylor.  We’re sad to see these ladies leave our little Bugaboo Stamps family, but we’re so excited to welcome our December/January Guest Designers Lisa Nowacki & Stephanie Landon.
Damaris & Sarah – Thank you so much for joining us and we wish you all the crafty happiness life can bring.
Well, maybe a Freebie on this Friday will make us all feel better!  =)

I'm Lisa, and I live in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, with my husband and two sons - Morgan, who's 10, and Dexter, who's 4.... oh, and two very spoilt cats! I 'found' cardmaking about 5yrs ago, and am now totally addicted to stamping and colouring and collecting gorgeous crafty stash. I'm lucky to be on some fabulous design teams, and have lots of fun playing in my little craft room everyday. I'm really thrilled to be part of Bugaboo's fabulous team for the next couple of months, it's so lovely to have been asked.

My name is Stephanie Landon also known as Crafty Teacher in the blogging world. My husband Steve and I live in Ohio. We have been married for 14 years. I grew up in Erie, Pennsylvania. We have 2 dogs (Brittany and Buster) and 3 cats (Maxine, Midnight and Simon). I am about to begin my 11th year of teaching. I have always loved to craft. I started scrap booking after getting married. In the last couple of years I discovered card making, stamping and digital stamps. I also enjoy cross stitching and knitting. I am very excited to be Bugaboo Stamps Guest Designer for December and January.
And a few bits of inspiration from our Designers too!
Billie Anderson
Happy Craftin'!
Note: Bugaboo Stamps makes every attempt to get our digital images uploaded to our store by noon EST for Freebie Friday, but please accept our apologies and check back later in the day if they're not there at that time.

Well, Cheryl First has a terrific tutorial for today that will answer that question PERFECTLY!
