With March here, so is a brand new designer that will share her time and talents with us all month long “in the Limelight!” Before we “introduce” you to that designer, we want to give a very warm thanks to Wanda Cullen who shared so much in the way of fun and creativity! Sometimes I wish the months could be a bit longer because our time with these fabulous designers always feels like it moves way too fast! So, thank you Wanda for sharing your beautiful “Cullenary Creations!” You inspire!
Are you ready to see who will be joining us this month? Well here goes…..
We are excited to have Lea Lawson from Lea’s Cupcakes and Sunshine with us all month long! Lea has such a fresh and fun style and honestly…. her cards always look “happy!” Stopping by her blog regularly, I thought — gosh, I would love to see her spin on Flourishes stamps! I was also partial because being from Montana, it’s so fun when you find other card makers from “Big Sky Country!” Even though she lives on the other side of the state, I laughingly told her to look out her window and see if she could see me waving! To get ready for tomorrow’s big reveal, I asked Lea to share a little bit about herself with all of YOU!
My name is Lea Lawson, and I reside in beautiful Missoula, Montana. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Josh, for 9 years, and we have two of the cutest dogs in the world- a yorkie named Bailey and a cocker spaniel named Sadie. I am a professional photographer, who focuses on weddings and senior portraiture, but also throw my hat in on some families and babies at times.
I have been crafting in some shape or form for as long as I can remember! When I was younger, I would use stationary items (Lisa Frank was my idol) and stickers, then cut up my photos (EEEK!) and arrange them together. The finished product would hang all over my walls and closet doors. When I graduated from high school, my aunt Amy gave me a scrapbooking kit, and that is when I was formally introduced to scrapbooking…
While I used to scrapbook more than I made cards, the tables have completely turned and I actually barely scrapbook any longer. I almost 100% exclusively make cards now, and I love it! The card making community is wonderful, and I have met some amazing women through it. You can see my work in publications like Paper Crafts Magazine/Special Issues, Cards Magazine, Cricut Magazine and occasionally in Scrapbook Trends Magazine.
Thanks for the intro Lea! We know we’ll have fun watching you create all March long! So, be sure to tune in tomorrow and see what Lea has in store. I know you won’t be disappointed!
