June Release Countdown Teasers Day 1

I've been in a bit of a creative slump of late, hence my absence, but luckily the fog lifted temporarily (I'm back in the slump now haha!) and I had a very productive week in the craft room, just in time for this months teasers...phew!

I am delighted to invite on board this month two wonderful Guest Designers, Anita Bowden and Lisa Bachtrog, both of whom I admire greatly.  Here's a little more about these lovely ladies in their own words...

"Hi, I’m Anita and I live in Torquay on the south west coast of England.  Since childhood I’ve always been creative and would always be making something.  I used to spend a lot of time doing cross-stitch kits and then in 2005 I bought some card making kits.  I then found details of some blogs in a card making magazine and I was hooked.  The very first blog I followed was in fact the lovely Michelle Short!  Neet & Crafty was born at the beginning of 2013 (Neet being my nickname) and I just love the crafting community.  I adore clean and simple cardmaking, and that’s where my style has settled.  I work full-time as an Audio Secretary for a Chartered Loss Adjuster so this hobby is the perfect escapism in my spare time"

"My name is Lisa, I am 26 and like so many others addicted to crafting.  I started card making about 3 years ago and it helps me to balance my life.  I think the crafty community is one of the greatest communities out there and love the creativity of the designers.  Clean and soft cards are my comfort zone but I love going a step further and trying different things.  I am really honored to join Clearly Besotted this month and I hope you like my inspirations!"

There are seven new stamp sets, 6 with coordinating die collections, coming on June 1st at 8pm (BST) and I have a ton (seriously, so many!) of cards to share with you between now and then :)

Today I am showcasing a set called Pawfect Plushies...
