People Who Leave A Great Impression On Us

Guest Designer - Lorena Sollows

Hello folks!  Lorena here from Scrapping Corner as a guest designer for Great Impressions and wow am I ever super stoked to be given this opportunity - thank you Jenny! 

First a little about myself, I hail from just outside our Nation's Capital Ottawa Canada.  I am a married mother of two very active toddlers who are the source of my crafty inspiration.  A banker by day and a paper crafter by night and any other spare moment I can squeeze in.  I have been working with Great Impressions stamps for many years, as the scrapbook store that I design for, Auntie Em's Scrapbooking, carries many of the GI stamps and does the Stamp Of The Month. 

Hang In There
For my first card I used the Ride Em' Cowboy (G470) stamp - and paired it with Carta Bella's Giddy Up collection - I simply love how this paper perfectly compliments this stamp.  I used a sentiment from a totally different stamp collection "Hang In There"




 
 Just The Two Of Us

For my second card I loved this walking away image of this couple called Forever (G451) , I can envision them walking through a meadow gazing at all the wild flowers and simply enjoying life.  I tried to keep the colours light in this as I knew I wanted to use Prima's Lyric collection for this.  The sentiment was perfect for this, again from a Stamp Of The Month from previous months.
 




 
Well folks, there you have it, I hope you enjoyed looking at my creations as much as I enjoyed making them - and I sure did enjoy making them.  If you are ever in the neighborhood stop by my blog!

Lorena, I am loving both of these cards. Being from a family where cowboying is a way of life that first card really touches my heart and the second card is beautiful and totally endearing.
