Meet our Guest Designer for May

DS_Guest Designer Badge

Our guest designer for May is no stranger to Drunken Stamper’s Challenges. We chose her as the best Life of the Party recipient for the month of March with her win on Challenge 117 ~ The Sound of Music and most recently chosen as the Life of the Party for Challenge 124 ~ Twilight. Please give a warm Drunken Stampers welcome to Diane W of “All I need is paper and ink….& stamps & copics

diane2

1. What’s your favourite drink when crafting?

Diet Pepsi is my long term love but I have recently discovered Choffy –a hot chocolate drink! A great alternative when I want something hot!

2. What’s your favourite colour to craft with?

I really like pink, gray and black together..but I go through phases and try different combinations…. Yellow and blue was a recent trend for me.

3. What’s the #1 tool you cannot live without?

My Fiskars trimmer is always by my side and I am happy with my Cricut but my Copics are my absolute favorite tools. I was a diehard colored pencil user for years but a friend introduced me to Copics about 3.5 years ago and I was an immediate convert! I love to color!

4. Glue: Liquid or tape?

ATG all the way… but I do keep some Tombow mono and Quickie glue nearby.

5. Your fave project

My favorite project is probably an album I put together for my nephew with all of the acceptance letters from all the colleges who pursued him; he was a great scholar/athlete and many places were interested in him! Artistically beautiful- not really- but it was thrilling for me to put it together! He is now playing Minor League Baseball and told me at Christmas that he looks at it every now and then-so that makes it special for me!

I do not have that album- so I chose my favorite scrapbook layout- I am thrilled with the happy colors and the simplicity of the pages –but mostly I just stinkin love those 4 girls!

Thanks so much, Diane! We look forward to see what you create with us this month!
