November Guest Designers revealed!

Happy Friday to all of you!!!

We sadly say good-bye to our October Guest Designers... Cabio and Erica, Thank you so much for joining us!! You have wow-ed us week after week with your awesome creations!!! May your new journies continue to bring you happy creativity and we hope you will play along with us when you can!!! Thank you!!

We will soon be in a new month which means we have some NEW GUEST DESIGNERS joining us... Meet the new GDT for November....

Tanya Johnson
I am married to my Childhood sweetheart Brian for five years now although we have been together for 16. We have a beautiful 3 year old daughter named Abigail who is amazing. I have been scrapbooking for way too many years and stamping just as long (probably around 12 years now). I love the outlet it gives me and how it helps me relax after a busy day at work/home. I enjoy creating projects and showing others my work for inspiration. What's even more exciting is my daugther who is 3 loves to stamp with me and I can't wait to see her progression with it :)

Kim Martin
HOWDY! My name is Kim and I live in Mid-Missouri! I have been married to my WONDERFUL Husband Sammy, for a little over a year, but we have been together for 12+ years. I have been a scrapbooker for 13 years and my style can go from simple, fast, and easy to taking 3 days to complete a page. You can check out all my projects on my blog: http://www.me-makimsplace.blogspot.com. One of the reasons my Hubby is SO Wonderful is that he helped me make my dream come true as we opened our own Scrapbook Shop in our hometown of Versailles, MO last month. I have two children my DD Tiffany who I would be LOST without, and my DS Danny. I have 4 Grandchildren whom are the subjects of most of my scrapbook pages. I didn't think I was much of a card maker, but have recently discovered that I enjoy creating them. When I am not scrapbooking or playing in my scrapbook shop, I am spoiling my grandchildren. In the process of opening up the scrapbook shop, we happened upon an idea to make our own Shimmery Misting Spray. We call it BA-DA-BING Bling, it is my FAVORITE scrapbook GOTTA HAVE! I was SO EXCITED to be asked to be a Guest Designer for Lollipop Crafts and am looking forward to playing along this month!

Welcome Ladies!!! We hope you enjoy your time with us and we are super excited to see all of your creations!!

Please check out their blogs when you have time and wish them a sweet welcome to the team... You'll be able to start seeing their fabulous creations beginning on Monday as they debut their creations with a new challenge!

Have a fabulous weekend! don't forget to join us for this week's challenge and come back on Sunday for the Winner's post!!!

Sponsor Spotlight - Paper Craftin' with Erica

We are highlighting our wonderful sponsor for this week's challenge... Paper Craftin' With Erica. Erica is a demonstrator with The Angel Company and she is giving away the stamp set Autum Leaves to one of our challenge participants. Check out the challenge details for "The Colors of the Rainbow" and remember to link up your projects by Satuday night! Here's a little about Paper Craftin' With Erica.

Rubber stampers, scrapbookers, and papercrafters have been using our impressive assortment of products since 1998 when the company started. The Angel Company is a true angel company. They allow you to sell anything that you have hand stamped with their products without the need to put their logo on it! Any stamp that your purchase from The Angel Company can be used for personal use, as well as for profit. All of our stamps come unmounted which, of course, saves cost and space. Not only does The Angel Company offer a great line of rubber stamps, we also carry signature paper collections, embellishments, inks and more! In addition to our incredible products, we offer a rewarding business opportunity that allows you to design your own future while doing what you love. Most recently, we added our trademarked Copic Caboodles. In honor of Fall, I’d like to offer this cute stamp set. Check out our specials by clicking my blinkie!

The Colors of the Rainbow

Hi there sweet crafters, this is Diane here with your challenge for this week. The challenge this week is called "The Colors of the Rainbow". Now if you ever watched Signing Times with your kids then I bet the song is running through your mind right now. ; ) For this challenge I want you to use a rainbow in your project. It can be a picture of an actual rainbow or a rainbow of colors.

For some inspiration of what you can do with rainbows check out the Lollipop Girls and see what they created for their rainbow project.




Paper Craftin' With Erica is our sponsor this week. Erica is a demonstrator with The Angel Company and she is giving away the stamp set Autum Leaves to one of our challenge participants. Now ladies, this is REAL rubber stamps that I'm talking about, so you want to be sure and get in on this one.

We here at Lollipop Crafts would like to THANK our October Guest Designers, Cabio and Erica, for joining us this month and creating such beautiful cards for our challenges!! This is the last challenge for their term, and we've enjoyed their creations week after week!! Thank you so much girls for your awesome participation!!

Meet the newest Lollipop Girl

We extend a huge Welcome to Peggy!!! The newest addition to the Lollipop Crafts team... Peggy will be wow-ing you all week after week as a full-time designer... Here's a little bit about her....

I'm ' just Peggy' and a grandma that is just a kid at heart and wants to play all day with her girls and stamps. Craft's has been my middle name and enjoying doing things with my hands, weather it is cards, scrapbooking, quilting or doing photography is just what I want. My blog is http://grandmaspearl.blogspot.com/ and it has been up and running for about a month now. My daughter has got me doing all sorts of things I never thought I would ever do, but it's lots of fun party because I do get to do it with my girls and my granddaughters. My picture came from https://www.dollsandlace.com/page8.htm and the card is one of my favorites

Is that card just beautiful?! Please help me and the Lollipop Girls in giving Peggy a very warm Welcome to the team!!! Happy to have you join us Peggy!!
