November Guest Designer:

A new month brings a new Guest Designer.  For November we are honored to have Rene join us as a Guest Designer.  Please stop by her blog - Life in the Craft Lane - to learn more about Rene and see her wonderful talent displayed!

For her first project Rene used Autumn Harvest.  She kept the card a CAS style and used great Autumn colors to accent the image.  Isn't it lovely?

Here's a little bit about Rene:

I live happily single in Cape Town, South Africa, the most beautiful city in the world. I work full time and am a part-time artist & crafter. My favorite hobby of all is reading and I read anything & everything. When I don’t read, I like to think up things to do/make and keeping myself busy doing/making it. I dabble in different crafts including cards, sewing, crochet, knitting and beading.
Arts and crafts has been part of my life since I can remember. Some of my fondest memories are from art classes at school, especially the finger paint times. I haven’t done much painting after school, but it is on my to-do list. For a year I even did some pottery which is so much fun. My hands needs to be busy, even when I’m reading! Then I will knit or crochet with my book on a stand, stopping to turn pages or have some coffee. 

I really like paper crafts, because one can create spectacular items with minimal tools and materials, and basic materials are still affordable, even with the R/$ exchange rate not favorable.
Walking, visiting friends and spending time at the theater (on stage or behind the scenes at a community theatre) are other pastimes. 

In 2010 I started blogging when I applied for a DT. Well, that one didn’t happen, but I did get a spot on another forum. A few of us, from all over, decided to start “Crafting By Designs” when the forum closed. I’m still on the DT and still having a good time with my friends who I see as part of my online family. 

Working with Deedees Digis is such a joy. The images are interesting with something for everyone. The sentiments are fun and versatile. The scriptures and verses come in when one needs some special words to say. I enjoy using the papers too! I’m really thrilled that I can be Guest Designer for the month and I hope that I will inspire more people to visit the shop and get some Digis!

Be sure to stop by and visit her at Life in the Craft Lane and leave her some love.  Come back next Wednesday to see what she has in store for us.


  1. Welcome Rene - this is a lovely creation - thanks for being a GD - have a lovely day

  2. Thanks Gail
    I really feel happy to share my creations here!

  3. Welcome, Rene, and thanks so much for being our Guest Designer! I love the clean, classiness of your card, made extra elegant by the way you glossed up the nuts and berries. It's fun to get to know a little more about you, too. I feel like we have so much in common -- lots of reading and a need for the hands to be busy! I look forward to your next project. Thanks again! :-)
