Challenge #10 – Flowers!

23 May

Hello, and welcome to a new Young Crafters Unite challenge! We hope you will be able to join us in this challenge =)

This month’s challenge

So the challenge this month is to make a card/project, using a flower or a floral image. We hope you’ll enjoy working with this challenge =)

Introducing our newest design team member! 

We’d like to give a big, happy welcome to the latest edition to our YCU team, Stephanie Britt! Steph is a past challenge winner, and we’re so happy to have her join us! We know you will love what she creates. Here’s a little more about Steph:

Hi! My name is Stephanie Britt. I’m 26 years old and I live in Florida with my husband and two dogs. I work full time at a University, but when I’m not working, I enjoy all things crafty. I love making cards, scrapbooking, sewing, crochet, etc. For the most part, I love to create colorful, clean and simple cards. When I’m not crafting, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, shopping, watching movies, going to the beach, and spoiling our dogs. 

I started blogging in 2010 and I absolutely love it! I love connecting with other crafters and making friends that have similar interests. I actually met quite a few of my crafty friends through Young Crafters Unite! I am so excited and honored to be a part of this team!

Make sure you hop over to Stephanie’s blog and give her a warm YCU welcome!
