Welcome Nina-Marie

July 6, 2015

Throughout the month of July, we’ve invited some fabulous guest designers to visit here on our blog. They are sure to inspire us all to get a jumpstart on our Christmas creations. Join us over the next several weeks as these wonderful guests feature our classic Christmas stamps and dies. And just when your Christmas crafting mojo is kicking in, we will be here in August to share with you all of our NEW Christmas products!


Another week, another wonderful guest! Who will be inspiring us this week? It’s the talented Nina-Marie Trapani!

Hi, my name is Nina-Marie! I live in Maine, and am best described as a fun and quirky person. I love card making and have been creating since 2007. I have been fortunate to share my card making and design work with many companies, and using my creativity to bring joy into other people’s lives is so rewarding. I have always been a creative person, and I also do illustrations, graphic design, knitting and crocheting. Many people ask what my card making style is, and I always say “eclectic”… I just make whatever my creativity comes up with at that moment!:) Penny Black products are a must-have in my supply stash; for any style card I am making, I can always use a Penny Black image in the design and it turns out fantastic. I love all their sweet images, especially the hedgehogs and cats!

To kick off her week of inspiration, Nina-Marie’s first two bright, cheery, and magical cards feature the adorable Mimi and Miles from our transparent set, 30-252 Winter Friends.
