Introducing.....


When Flourishes decided to bid farewell to it's weekly Featured Stamper, we knew we needed to find a new way to put those designers who shine with Flourishes in the limelight! We scoured the galleries and surfed blogs week after week jotting down the names of talented stampers that we would love to feature here on our Newsletter.

We're happy to say, we have a Limelight Designer that will now be joining us every Sunday for the month of May giving us some insight into her creative process and sharing her talents with us! And, that stamper is........

I've always loved Michelle's clean and classy style. When you look at her creations, you see interesting and sophisticated layouts usually with ribbons, rhinestones, and elegant patterns! You could spend hours surfing her blog or SCS gallery! Take a look at some of our favorite Michelle Woerner creations....




Because Michelle is going to be hanging out with us for a while, we thought you might like to know a little bit more about her! So, here's what she had to say in her own words!
"My name is Michelle Woerner, but you all may know me better as sf9erfan from SCS. I started stamping 2 1/2 years ago completely by accident. I answered an add on Craigslist to buy some scrapbook paper, and while I there I saw her lovely handmade Christmas cards. She said she made them using stamps from a company called Stampin’ Up!. This was a novel idea to me, I never knew people MADE their own cards?!? How funny is that? Well, I went right home and looked SU! up on Ebay. Through a link on an auction, I found SCS and the rest is history! I am a SAHM of two wonderful boys (ages 3 1/2 and 5). I am surrounded all day by dinosaurs, cars and trains cardmaking is a wonderful escape into the world of designer paper, ribbon, flowers and all things pretty whenever I want. I absolutely love making cards and go through withdrawls if I don't craft everyday! I first discovered Flourishes when they released the Coffee with Friends set -which I have to say is still my favorite! I absolutely fell in love with the elegant style of Flourishes stamps and have been a HUGE fan ever since. I am so thrilled and honored to be asked to be Flourishes Limelight Designer. I hope you all like the cards I will share with you and look forward to you all getting to know me better these next few weeks!"

We are so excited to have Michelle joining us each Sunday during May! She has some fun and creative projects in the works and I just know, you won't want to miss them! See you all back here soon!
