Hi, I’m Jess Francisco! I’m a stay at home mom living near Virginia Beach, Virginia and getting crafty whenever I can! I’ve been crafting for as long as I can remember, but I started making cards in 2015. I love to color, ink blend, and heat emboss and my favorite style is scene cards! You can find me on social media as @acarddayswork and on my YouTube channel A Card Day’s Work. I can’t wait to get to know you! Hugs,Jess
I am a work at home mom of two girls and two dogs. I own a craft business with my husband and we make paper and wood home décor. It’s a combination of my love of paper and his love of woodworking! I love to paper craft and have made it a goal to start using up my giant paper stash! I have been paper crafting for almost 20 years and my true loves are scrapbooking and cardmaking. My 9 year old daughter loves to craft with me and is currently obsessed with making cards and bookmarks. You can find me on Instagram as @bourbancreekcrafts and on my YouTube channel Bourban Creek Crafts.
We are so happy to have these designers with us and know they will provide you with great crafty inspiration.

Guest Designers…we are thrilled to have these two!
Hi everybody I’m Courtney. I’m so thrilled to be guest designing for the month of December. Scrapping for Less was my very first design team so it’s so nice to be back. I live in upstate New York with my 2 cats, Macey and Franky, who loves to help me color. I’ve been cardmaking for about 9 years now, and coloring for 2. I can’t wait to share some inspiration with you this month!
I am a wife, a mom to two fabulous kids, a librarian, and a card-crafting addict living in Chicagoland. When I’m not taking care of my family or working at the library, you can find me at my craft table playing with stamps and paper and all sorts of art mediums and crafty supplies. I love sharing what I create and love seeing what others create in this wonderful card-crafting community.
Doodlebug “Winter Wonderland” Pre-order.
Just wanted to let everyone know I am hoping…fingers crossed…this will ship to me this week!

Renee Moran (AKA: Delaney Jane Cards)
My name is Renee’ Moran but I go by Delaney Jane Cards on most social media. I have a small Etsy shop, blog and YouTube channel by the same name. No, it isn’t a random name. It is all named after my daughter who passed away in 2013 at ten days old; Delaney Jane Moran. I live in Southeastern Wisconsin where I can be trapped indoors by the weather 5 months of the year!( you know mommin means I still have to go places though) I have been a paper crafter for over 20 years and a card maker almost as long.I have three small children at home 4, 2.5 & 6 months but also lay claim to 5 other beautiful souls ranging in age from 21 to would be almost 6. I find card making to be a therapy for me and my soul. I try to find creative time every single day, even if it is just sketching out a card design.
You are going to love seeing her projects! Follow her on YouTube!
Alicia Havranek (AKA: Crazy Paper Chick)
“I am an elementary school teacher who loves to spend my spare time card making. I first started my paper crafting journey in 2016 and have been hooked ever since. I love sharing my love of paper crafting on my YouTube channel, and enjoy being part of the paper crafting community.”
She is a fabulous paper crafter that you can find on YouTube!
Teresa here today with a sweet fall card using an adorable stamp set from Stampendous and some glorious fall paper by Scrapping for Less.
I just arrived home around 11:30 PM this past Tuesday evening from an unexpected week long trip to Oregon to help with my two little grandsons while my daughter’s partner was out of town. (I can’t help but insert some cuteness!) Well a 2.5 and 1.5 yr old are energy laden enough to exhaust this “Amma” (grandma). Top that off with traveling from the West coast to the East…whew what a trip.
So, because of all that I needed a quick but adorable card for today’s post. So glad this “Sheetload of Cards” from Call Me Crafty Al’s YouTube channel was sitting on my desk. (I will be doing a post (or video) soon with this month’s sheet load.) While looking through my stamp stash I just knew I had to use this Stampendous set before it was too late to use it.
I saw this stamp set and immediately thought of this elegant card. I have never made a “see through” card before. This one was a labor of love because it took me all day to stamp, fussy cut, color, and put the card together. I love how it turned out.
Fall! What a great time of the year. I love all the things that happen in this magical months of the year…leaves falling, kids tricking or treating maybe, apple picking, pumpkin gutting, and lots of other wonderful activities that one can engage in when it is cool and breezy outside. Whoa! Wait a minute…I live in Sunny Central Florida where the temps are in the 90s long into the fall season…One can dream though, can’t they? In the meantime, I will just treasure my wonderful fall activities with card making!
This month is a bit different due to our product not arriving in time to get the kit out to our Design Team. So instead of a blog hop there will be inspiration from our design team throughout the month. Also, please make sure if you would like a subscription to assure you receive your kit now is the time. Due to needing to manage numbers a bit better should you cancel your subscription in the future you MAY need to be placed on a waiting list. When there is a cancellation I will go from the waiting list in order. Thanks so much for understanding and loving our kits!
Now, on to this month’s kit and a few cards from Stacy…I will have some added in tomorrow…as I still have products to get up for you to browse!
Banana Split Kit
Double Dip Kit
Stacy used the Halloween collection to showcase some of the products with some quick digital cards until her card kit arrives.
Please leave us some blog love and I will use random.org to draw a random winner to receive a package of goodies.
Lastly, join me tomorrow on our YouTube channel at 2PM EST for a live unboxing of the kit. I will show you a close up of all products and answer any questions you may have!
Here are the cards I promised for today…Saturday 9/28!
And I want to say so very much I am Thankful for each and everyone of you today…I know this is not our typical showing off but stay tuned over the next couple of weeks and we will knock your socks off!
Teresa here today to share a very simple card but so cute to send to someone that needs to be reassured you love them. This card will be winging its way today to my daughter in Oregon, she needs a little extra love right now.
