Welcome Corrie Herriman to our Design Team

We are so pleased that our entire design team will be staying on to continue their play with Vera Lane Studio digi stamps. The team is excited to add another member to our team of talent. 

Many of you know Corrie and the creations she has shared.  Now you will see Corrie's weekly posts. The team has already had a preview of things to come and we can tell you that you will be tickled!

So welcome Corrie!  Please read her introduction and look for her creations on Sundays!

Hi, my name is Corrie. I live in the Netherlands in a small market town called Venlo, which is situated next to the German border.
I have been crafting all my life; I knitted, crocheted, made dolls and teddy bears, painted and probably did quite a few more crafts. In 2012 I discovered paper craft and the rest is history as they say. I love bright colours but also like vintage and shabby chic. I started making cards and then quickly branched out into artjournaling, altering things, ATC's, postcards and tags. I love trying new things... and I have all the time in the world for my hobby as I don't work anymore.  Apart from crafting I also like nice food and wine, lovely holidays, reading and cooking. 
I am very happy to be on this team and I look forward to sharing my projects with you !

The Traveler; Our June 5th new release

Our new release this week is a whimsical little traveling gal named Beatrix.  Beatrix is wide-eyed,
ready to seek adventures with her well traveled suitcase, camera, map and postcard.  This value-bundled seven digi stamp set also comes with three sentiments all in jpg and png high resolution files.

Our talented design team has shared their creations this week with more to come.  With so many travelers this summer The Traveler set is a great collection for scrapbooking, planners, journals and bon voyage cards. 

VLS DT Member Carole  opened up our week of fabulous designs with this beautiful dimensional card. Carole reversed the image of Beatrix and used the accessory images in repetition to bring you to the car's focal point.  The delicate light colors are perfect for a summertime traveler.  Isn't her periwinkle coat pretty?  Learn how Carol approached this creation by clicking on her name for her blog.

Stephanie will be blogging later as she was one of our DT travelers this week!  She's back home creating for you but was able to get her beautiful water-colored card up for you to enjoy before she left town. 

Stephanie uses watercolors in many of her creations with depth and vitality.  Her monochrome outfit on Beatrix looks great against her dreamy watercolor backdrop.
Follow Stephanie on Instagram @inkypinkyboo if you'd like to see more of her techniques.

Design Team Member Nikki brought you this adorable journal entry featuring The Traveler along with a row of houses from our Tall Houses collection and one of our Vera Lane car images.  Clever to tuck Beatrix in the vehicle and create a mini road trip!

Nikki changes up her media so you never know what she will use next.  Click on her name to see her blog and learn about her style and techniques.

Mischelle is our designer that likes to show us options.  Often Mischelle will
make variations on a theme.  Her version of The Traveler features Beatrix in a bright red coat against neutral tones.  The text from this set is repeated to create  an effective background for this piece.

Please be sure to check out Mischelle's beautiful blog "Mischelle Makes"

Speaking of traveling, our Designer Teresa has been enjoying a sunny vacation.  Teresa was sure to have her sample ready for you with today's post.  Beatrix is featured with a lovely hue of pink hair, lime green lashes and a sweet light aqua coat.  She looks stunning on the creamy background with the photos that bring pops of color with images from some of our other sets.  You can learn more about Teresa's approach to this set on her blog The Fat Cactus.  Teresa's use of color and balance of design elements is ever so inspiring.

We have two more designers to show off their makes this week as well as customers showing off their version of Beatrix and her travels.  Our sentiments and accessories are so versatile that you can see your own vision to create with this set with such great team inspiration!
