Meet another of our Classy & Elegant Designers!

Today I get to introduce myself! Ha! It is kinda weird to be doing so! 

I have to admit; I did not know where to place myself in the list of styles. I know I like to create cards that are clean & layered but I wanted to have the challenge of creating Classy & here I go!!

My name is Lesley and not only am I an avid card maker; I seem to be an avid challenge creator as well!! I am so proud to be a part of this team and want to thank all these lovely ladies for agreeing to join me in this adventure. I teach Grade 1 and I am happily married to the bestest fella. We have 2 furbabies...Rolley the Rocket dog and Penney the Princess puddy. I have been actively paper crafting since 2008. 

The Classy/Elegant Style can be defined as:

  • polished
  • shiny finish
  • sparkling embellishments
  • rich colour scheme
  • sophisticated sentiments
  • regal
  • sweeping
  • dramatic
  • monochromatic
  • layered textures
  • awe
  • impress

Please join us on Monday as we introduce our first Guest Designer for 2014!

  5. Ha, I'm surprised you can manage a day-time job in addition to all your challenge blog and DT activities. It must be hard to describe your own style of card making, but I think you summed it up nicely. Looking forward to the start of the first challenge.
