Guest Designer; Rosemary Dennis

We are pleased to welcome Rosemary Dennis as a Guest at our Blog today. I know you’ll love what she’s done with Penny Black!

 

I live in Washington state with my husband and our two boys. I started scrapbooking in about 2000 when my oldest was almost 2. I did that for a few years and then started making cards in about 2005. I discovered the online world of papercrafting in 2008, but didnt really get involved until January of 2009 when I started a Flickr Photostream and my Splitcoaststampers gallery. I finally took the “blogging plunge” in May of 2010.

I have had my cards published in several papercrafting magazines. I had seen Penny Black stamps at local craft stores and crafting websites and purchased a few here and there (mainly sentiment stamps). But in the fall of 2010 I really discovered the amazing line of stamps that Penny Black had when I saw their 2010 holiday stamps. I fell in love with many stamps from that release including Christmas Star, Mademoiselle Noel, and Christmas Usher. After that I just couldn’t get enough Penny Black stamps!

Join us next week as we showcase more stamps from our new Catalog. Have a wonderful weekend!
