Welcome our December Guest DT

Can you believe that it's December 1st already? Once Thanksgiving hits it's a snowball effect until the New Years. Everyone is busy with baking, shopping, parties, and lots of family fun.

We have something exciting for you this month, we have two Guest Designers that will have lots of wonderful cards and projects to share with you and keep those creative juices going through the next few weeks.

Our First Guest Designer is Melanie Holtz and you will love her style. Be sure to pop by her blog and look around. She's so crafty and talented and I loved browsing through her blog. You can find her blog (HERE)!

Hello! My name is Melanie Holtz and I live in Southwestern Ontario, Canada. I am very happily married to my husband Dean. We have two wonderful children named Nathan and Ainsleigh.

We are all active members of a local church family, and are very passionate about our faith in Jesus Christ! I was completely thrilled to be given the opportunity to be a guest designer for Sweet 'N Sassy Digis. I love that right under the name of Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps, is the phrase "sharing the love of Christ through paper crafting". Giving a card that you have poured your time and effort into is such a great way to show somebody you care...that they "matter". Cards can be uplifting, encouraging, comforting...or just plain funny! We all need to giggle sometimes! Stamping has become a creative outlet for me, and I try to find a little time each day to work on something.

I am honored to be part of this team, and to be working with such talented ladies. I look forward to sharing some Sweet 'N Sassy projects with you all!


Our Second Guest Designer is Mary Giles and again we have an UBER talented designer. I scrolled through her blog back several months just looking at all the wonderful cards she's done. Be sure to stop by her blog and take a peek yourself (HERE)!!!

Hello to all you wonderful crafters out there! My name Mary Giles (OhioMary on SCS) and I absolutely love making cards. I especially enjoy images that are fun to color. I just recently started to get into digi stamps more...and I LOVE them! I thought I would miss the actually stamping part, but digi stamps have offered me a way to get a perfect image everytime, I can resize them to my needs, and I love to print out images for my 3 yo daughter to color along with me. I do enjoy both forms of stamps though. I have been stamping seriously for about 2 years now and it all started from a swap I joined on SCS with many of whom I have formed everlasting friendships. I would not be where I am today if it wasn't for their support and encouragement.

By day I'm an engineer and I test software on helicopters. By night I'm a mommy to best thing to ever happen to 3 yo daughter. I'm a wife to a wonderful and supportive husband who was my highschool sweetheart. Once the kiddo is in bed I let my creativity loose. Making cards has really been a stress reliever for me and has opened up the world to new friends and inspiration. I'm always looking to others for inspiration as I tend to be an inside the box type of person. I've always been drawn to handmade crafts and have learned to crochet, knit, and quilt. Quilting was my 1st serious hobby and while I still love quilting, I really like being able to finish a project in a few hours instead of a few months.

I'm really honored to be December's Guest Designer and many thanks to Korin for giving me this opportunity. I'm really looking forward to working with the Sweet N Sassy images along with the design team.
