Be sure to check out their blogs often or check back at our blog here on Fridays for a heads up.

Day 1 - Introducing Bowtiful Stamp Set

I had the ambition to learn more about sewing. I have indulged in a few sewing books and pinned lots of projects to my Pinterest sewing board here. I found myself especially drawn to hair bows and bow ties. So before I can sew them, I want to make them into stamps.

And a quick card:

nina-yang-life-is-bowtiful-card Ahem, I tried stamping a random pattern again. I'm thinking that if I have cut the bows out and just throw them on the card base, they might look more random... Hmmm, another reason we need dies, right? Something to try later!

Meet Our Design Team

DesignTeamHeadshots-KatieGehringI live in Northeast Ohio with my husband, our two lively and creative daughters, four cats and countless antique automobiles. By day, I work in the Human Resources department of a large bank, and by night, I am a paper engineer, DIY enthusiast and all around crafty gal. I started scrapbooking in 2001 and decided to try card making a few years later. Little did I know that stamping would take my crafty passion, enthusiasm, and stash of supplies to a whole new level!  I love to try new things and try to do something creative each and every day.  I am thrilled to be a part of the Waffle Flower Crafts design team!
Katie's creations always bring a smile to my face. I love the vibrate colors and impactful elements on her cards. Her bold and happy style makes me want to stamp something right away! She makes the cutest critter cards and the coolest graphic cards. I also love that she can create something very unique from simple supplies, such as the Super Hero Card here! You can find Katie's clever creations on her blog: Our Charmed Life and connect with her on the following sites:
