Meet our June Guest Designer; Nancy Nickel!

Vera Lane Studio added an amazing Design Team in January 2017.  We are now bringing you additional creations from some of our talented Facebook members. Our new monthly Guest Designers will showcase along with our design team.  Look for our guests to present their creations every Sunday!

Please meet our very first Guest Designer for June 2017, Nancy Nickel

I live in Saskatchewan, Canada, with my husband of 30+ years. We have two daughters that are grown and gone, and we have lots of fun together in our empty nest. I am self-employed part-time, and am blessed to be able to spend my days playing in my craft room. I enjoy making projects that are encouraging, and put a smile on peoples faces. That's why I'm such a huge fan of Vera Lane Studio! How can you not smile at the fun and whimsical images available in the shop? Some even make me laugh out loud! I'm very excited to be Guesting with Vera Lane for the month of June. Big thanks to Janet and the entire Design Team! 

We are excited to have Nancy on board.  Please join us in giving her a warm welcome and check our FB fan page for her wonderful inspiring creations along with the rest of our super design team!

Windows and doors

We have two new releases this week on Vera Lane!  Our first release will be a shop favorite.  It is as versatile as it comes and can be integrated with your home photos and characters from our many collection.
Windows is an eight-image value bundle with five windows, a door and two sentiments.  Resize, stretch and pull these fun window frames to layers with characters or your family photos.  Our team has had so much fun playing with this set!

Design Team Member Teresa opens our week with these lovely samples that she shares on ur private FaceBook group.  All the characters are from other Vera Lane Studio sets!

Cute, right?  Please check our FB group to see the amazing projects our incredible design team has come up with  for the rest of our debut week!

Our second set release can be used with the windows quite well.  These "Girls on the block" faces make the cutest journal clips!  Use these heads for finger puppets or just about anything else!

Black, white and a POP! of color

Our monthly theme is black, while and a pop of color!  The Vera Lane Studio design team has been sharing wonderful samples to inspire our members.  Our monthly theme also reflects the topic of our monthly ATC swaps --so inspiration is always a click away!  You can join us and jump in anytime to enter your ATC up until the month end deadline.

Here are just a few pieces the team has shared in their diverse styles for our monthly theme.  Many members have already been inspired and our swap album for the month of May is growing.

DT Member Carole creates this whimsical underwater scene in shades of gray featuring images from Under the Sea and Ocean 11
Marina uses Tall Town and March for this eye-catching B/W orange scene.

Mischelle took her whimsy to the Cherry Street set in her pink-popping journal spread.

Teresa creates this striking contrast with an image from Journal Faces.

Stephanie uses her watercolor techniques to create shades of gray washes using Love you to the bone.

Our whimsical and quirky characters are easy to work with and diverse to suit your crafting mood.  If you are not already a member of our FaceBook sharing group please join us and play along!
