Thank you Christine!!



We are very excited to introduce our talented CAS Guest Designer for this challenge 


Hello, my name is Gemma, and I'm a UK blogger from Oxford, England. 

I work in Design and, in my spare time, I enjoy photography and paper crafting. I started making my own handmade cards in 2015, and started My Blog, as a way to share my cards with others.

I really enjoy the process of designing cards, from sketching an idea on paper to creating the finished card. For me, the fun of design is how an idea can evolve and change as I go, and I often end up with something very different to what I expected.

I get so much inspiration from others online, and I hope the cards I share will inspire a few people too.

Thanks again for the opportunity to guest design.

Best wishes,
Gemma

We are so lucky to have Monika Reeck from Creative with Monika as our Guest Designer for this challenge!



"Hello! My name is Monika Reeck, and my blog is Creative with Monika. I was born and raised in Indonesia, and after I married my hubby in 2001, we moved to Germany. Our son’s are 11 and 9 years old, and we currently live in Munich, Germany. In the daytime, my job is accounting, and at night I enjoy cardmaking!
I started making cards in 2002. While I was taking a course to learn German, I wanted to create a special birthday card for a fellow course participant, and used punches for my card. Then, in January 2008, I started stamping, and joined the Hero Arts Flickr Group, which is when I started sharing my cards and joining their challenges.
In April 2009, I started my blog and joined one challenge. At that time, my cards were any type (Vintage, Shabby Chic, Layered, CAS), and in 2013, I realized that CAS is my favorite style! I also like creating masculine cards. Also, instead of buying expensive patterned papers, I like to design my own! It saves money (for buying stamps and inks) and I have fun!


Many thanks to the Addicted to CAS DT for inviting me as Guest Designer! I am really happy to share my creations in the ATCAS gallery with many talented ladies. I hope I can help your inspiration for this challenge."

Welcome Monika!

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the amazing CAS artist Julie Beech!




Hi, I'm Julie, a retired primary school teacher originally from Yorkshire, now living the good life in the glorious Shropshire countryside, with my husband and dog Max. The kids are both grown up and I have a wonderful 6 year old Grandson.
I've always loved to make things and just can't sit and do anything, got to have something on the go!
Blogging started in July 2013 so I could enter challenges. I'm awfully competitive and since I've had to give up tennis and badminton, they satisfy my urge to compete, but I have become friends with many like minded crafters all over the world and have even met a few of them in real life. 
Over the years my style has changed and I am now mostly a CAS sort of girl. I love patchwork, sewing, painting with water colours and soft pastels, reading detective fiction and geneology. I have managed to trace my husbands family back to the early 17th Century. I love a good bit of rooting around in the archives, it's like your very own detective story, 

It was great to be asked by the ATCAS team to guest for this challenge. Thanks for the honour, hope you take inspiration from my efforts!


Here is our inspiration for you -
