ric#27 - Cacharel

Good morning, fashionistas!

We had some amazing entries for our last challenge, and as always it was tough to select a winner!  Before we reveal our favorites, I wanted to announce the (unofficial) relaunch of our Facebook page!  For those of you who are already fans, you know that I occasionally post fashion news or challenge deadline reminders, but there was never a lot of activity.  Thankfully, some of the girls on the DT have agreed to help me out by posting some fun content!  We plan on periodically featuring challenge entries that catch our eye, fun fashions we find out and about, or maybe even a giveaway!  Hit the "like" button on our sidebar to get started!!

And now, the winners:

Our Fabulous Fashionistas are:

Marcy Kaminski
Geri G

And the Queen of Couture, winner of a $10 gift card from Freckled Fawn is:

Congrats, ladies! Miriam, please email me (ourchangeofart@gmail.com) to claim your prize!


I'd love to introduce to you to our next inspiring guest designer.  She is one of my personal faves, and hers is actually the very first card making blog I discovered.  It is none other than...

Julie has been playing with stamps, ink and paper for over 20 years, when her cousin first sent her a handmade card. Throughout the last two decades she has worked in creative/administrative capacities within the industry, including Design Team Coordinafor for Splitcoaststampers.com, the world's largest online stamping community and as Creative Teams Director for A Muse Studio (formerly A Muse Artstamps).

Over the years she has taught many live classes and loves teaching online via HOWnow, the educational division of ellenhutson.com. You can also visit Julie's blog, Paper Trufflez, where she shares her latest creations and pokes fun at her obsession with rubber stamps!
