June Guest DT: Welcome Michele!

Michele Gross B&W

I am so incredibly thrilled to welcome Michele Gross as our June guest designer. 

I adore her CAS style and knew she’d be a perfect fit to help out for a month and I was over the moon when she accepted.  If you somehow haven’t bumped into her in blogland, please be sure to stop over at Studio MSG  and be inspired by her designs.  She also runs the challenge blog CAS-ual Fridays.  I can’t wait to see all the wonderful projects she comes up with this month.  Today is her first one, so please go show her some IHP love! 

Here’s what she said when I asked her a little bit about herself:

“I am a stamper! Nothing makes me happier than pressing a well inked stamp onto card stock, except dressing it up afterwards with ribbon and bling!

I started my blog Studio MSG about 2 1/2 years ago so I could participate in challenges.  I was instantly hooked and soon worked up my nerve to try my hand in the publication arena.  I've been lucky to have several of my cards featured in various publications including Paper Crafts Magazine, and their book The Big Book of Holiday Paper Crafts. 

Creatively speaking, my biggest source of pride to date is my challenge blog CAS-ual Fridays!  I love seeing the amazing clean and simple inspiration that my design team dreams up each week, and the fantastic interpretations the players add to the gallery, all from a simple challenge theme.

When I am not getting inky, I am fully immersed in the world of electric guitars, skateboard parks and wrestling mats thanks to my 2 handsome sons. I married my best friend 15 years ago, I am owned by two very loved Boston Terriers, I think chocolate should be a food group, and I believe there are two seasons- winter and baseball.

I'm so excited to be guest designing at i {heart} papers this month! The store is filled with delightful goodies so I know this is going to be super fun! “

So, welcome Michele!  I’m so happy to have you join us this month!

Thanks for stopping in today!
