September Guest Designer - Welcome Ruth!!

It's the first Wednesday of September which means it's time to introduce our September Guest Designer.  Please help me welcome Ruth of Tip Top Toppers Things as our new Guest Designer!!!  You'll be amazed by her work - I certainly am!

A little bit about Ruth:

I live in Lancashire, UK and have been crafting for a long time but my main interest is papercrafting.I currently design for Polkadoodles and Dr Digi and I'm part of the Design Team for Simply Create Too.  I single handedly run Crimbo Crackers - a fortnightly Christmas themed challenge blog.  I previously designed for Funky Hand, Jellypark and Dude Time Doodles before they closed. I'm mum to two boys who keep me very busy with their sporting activities (football and go-karting) and I work full time in a very demanding role so papercrafting is my escape time.

I started cardmaking after making my own Wedding stationery 15 years ago and it's sort of snowballed from there!  I don't have a craft room or dedicated work area so have to keep the mess to a minimum.  I primarily use digital stamps and papers as these take up less space and I can print what I want when I want and have an endless supply.  Although I do have quite a large stash of physical papers!  I enjoy colouring and more often than not use Promarkers and Flexmarkers and sometimes Aquamarkers or watercolour pencils.  I enjoy using die cuts in my creations and my trusty old and well used Sizzix Original Red machine keeps me going although it is limited to die size

For this week Ruth is celebrating our  bit of summer by using Grillin' & Chillin'.  I'm thinking I need to BBQ now:

Stop by and visit Ruth at Tip Top Toppers ThingsShe would love to have you visit and leave her some love!!

Be sure to come back next week when Ruth will have us reaching for the stars!
