"Merry & Bright"

Our December Sponsor is Eileen Hull!!
 
Eileen grew up in a large art-loving family. She has applied her creative thinking to all sorts of life and career events – from adjusting to thirteen military moves and raising four children to developing popular craft product lines. In 2009, Sizzix launched her first ScoreBoards™ dies, specially designed to cut and score matboard and thicker materials. Eileen enjoys working with recycled materials and "treasures" from thrift stores, or even better, those found on the curb!

Our designers were thrilled to receive products from Eileen Hull to make their projects with this  month. We hope you will be inspired to decorate your holiday gifts in creative ways this year.

~Eileen is offering our lucky random winner this awesome Loaf Pan die!~

Our November Guest Designer is the Suzanne Czosek



 Hi!  My name is Suzanne Czosek (stampersuzz). I am thrilled to be here guest designing with the fabulously talented MMMC design team.  I am married with a family of 3 kids and my husband.  We live in the midwest of the U.S.   I have been crafting my whole life.  I loved art ever since I held my first set of crayons and started coloring inside and outside the lines.  I started paper crafting around 10 years ago when a good friend introduced me to stamping.  Ever since then I have enjoyed exploring all types of styles, mediums and techniques.  I have been very lucky to design for a variety of companies over the years who all have been terrific to work with. 

I fell in love with the inspiration board for this month and created a tag with the beautiful colors highlighted in the photo.  


  

And now for some inspiration from our Design Team...
