Guest Designer: Amy from Prairie Paper & Ink

Introducing a paper craft classic, with a fun Doodlebug twist - Sprinkles polka dot vellum! Simply sheer sheets of your favorite Doodledug colors with shiny enameled dot for an added pop of design. For greeting cards, scrapbooks, keepsakes, and more, these trendy translucent accent papers will add dimension and cheer to any creative craft.

But what would be cuter then showing you our vellum? Showing you what you can create with it. We are so excited to have Amy Rysavy from Prairie Paper & Ink. She has been rocking our Sprinkles Vellum. We'll be featuring more ideas from our Design Team in May, so start STOCKING UP!!

We're only going to show you one of Amy's projects, but we've offered up links to her blog and she's so amazing she even rocks a video or two to show you how to create things like this darling paper rose.

I was introduced to rubber stamping in the summer of 2004. I didn't think much of it until I got my first set of stamps and started stamping my own cards. It wasn't long before I was hooked!

I started scrapbooking in January of 2005. I was *very* nervous about starting! It just looked too difficult and I was afraid I wouldn't be creative enough to make a good page! My first page was a 6x6 and turned out ok. I stuck w/ the 6x6 size for a while as the 12x12 really intimidated me.
Not long after that I started scrapbooking in earnest, I studied layouts (my biggest challenge) and design, color combos etc., and bought a TON of embellishments! I haven't done a *lot* of pages (around 40 12x12 layouts) but I take my time doing them and enjoy every second!

I was originally a SAHM to 2 beautiful little girls. We live in a small town in the middle of the Canadian prairies. In March of 2008 I took courses to become an esthetician and started working out of my home. In September of 2009 I opened my own esthetics salon in town and now work full time outside of the home.

So now my stamping time is limited to weekends and I haven't scrapbooked in several years. I do plan on getting back into scrapbooking as I really enjoyed it - but for now there just isn't the time.
I now have my own line of stamps under the AmyR Stamps line. They are manufactured by allthatscraps.com and distributed through them as well as through various online retailers and brick&mortar stores throughout the US, Canada and the world!
