GUEST DESIGNER & GIVEAWAY: Valerie Stangle – 5/10


Today we are showcasing work by a very talented guest designer: Valerie Stangle. If you are joining PSA Stamp Camp for the first time from her blog, welcome! For those of you being introduced to Valerie today for the first time, have a peak at her blog. Her clean and simple crafting style is just up my alley.

She's been published in Paper Crafts magazine, Rubber Stamper, Cards Magazine and she crafts for Gina K Designs & Scor-Pal. These are all brag worthy things but when I asked if there's anything else she should brag about, she said: "The things I am most proud of have nothing to do with crafting, I am proud of the adults my children have grown or are growing into, the success of my husband, 20 years of marriage, and the loyalty of our family dog." Well-said!

 Valerie created a gift to give to her son's teacher, who is expecting a boy this June. Store keepsakes or cards in it and display it proudly on the shelf. I think it belongs either in a Martha Stewart magazine or in a Pottery Barn catalog. She's stamped the boats from PSA Anchors Aweigh.




Valerie also created a set of note cards. Perhaps the teacher can use them as her thank-you cards for her baby shower, or maybe she will use them to write notes to her baby. (Love that idea! I started writing notes to my daughter, Molly. I hope one day she'll sit down and read them.) She's stamped from PSA Anchors Aweigh and I really love how crisp and clean each one has come out here. That's the advantage of the PSA Essentials self-inking stamper!


Here's a close up. Adorable!



BLOG CANDY/GIVEAWAY ALERT! Today, we'd like to welcome Valerie & her readers visiting PSA Stamp Camp by giving away: 1 custom stamp, 1 Peel & Stick pack, 1 alignment tool, & 1 ink. An $80.00 retail value. To enter to win: Follow this blog and/or like us on Facebook. Leave us a comment letting us know you've done so. Each action is an entry to win and we will draw the winner tomorrow! Good luck!

I am so pleased to have had Valerie work with our stamps. She's a guest designer today though after seeing the quality of work, don't be surprised if I start recruiting her for a permanent position!
