April Guest Designer: Karolyn Loncon

karolyn Hello!!!  I am bursting with excitement today to announce our very first guest designer, Karolyn Loncon.

One of the highlights of CHA for me this year was visiting the Paper Smooches booth and that is where I met Karolyn.  I’ve followed her blog for a while and was thrilled to meet her.   If you haven’t followed her, even after her rise to success as a 2011 Stamping Royalty winner, you really should!  She’s got a fabulous style and I am so thrilled she accepting my invitation to guest design for IHP for the month of April.  She will be posting several projects and will be part of our monthly DT Challenge later in the month.  So, stay tuned for all of her great projects.

Here’s what she has to say about herself:


I’m a retired legal assistant, married to my sweet hubby Garry since 1980, mom to Ashley (who’s married to Blake and mom to my two beautiful grandsons, Brecken and Brenner) and Amy. We are snowbirds – we spend the fall and winter in Chandler, Arizona, and the spring and summer in Mill Creek, Washington. I feel very blessed.

I’ve been stamping since 2002 – it’s what got me through the heartbreak of my oldest daughter going off to college. Stamping and paper-crafting is what makes my heart go pitter patter . . . it’s what I dream about, it’s what gets my motor running every day (besides my Starbucks! LOL), and it’s what makes me happy. I’ve had a bit of success with the publication game, and was named one of the 2011 Stamping Royalty winners by Paper Crafts Magazine!! OH EM GEE!! My most recent milestone in the stamping world is that I designed six background and element stamp sets for Paper Smooches. Now THAT was mind blowing!! I am a Girl Friday for the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge and absolutely love it!!

I’m thrilled beyond belief to be guest designing for Kate and i {heart} papers for the month of April. Thank you, Kate, for the wonderful opportunity!!”

So please take a moment to stop by her blog and welcome her to the IHP team for the month of April!
