Featured Cardmaker: Carol L, Gilbertsville PA

Hi! My name is Carol. I live in PA and I've been stamping about 7 years. I started scrapbooking about 15 years ago, and after I saw some pretty cards on the counter at the scrapbook store, I decided to take a class to learn how to make them. I was hooked and the rest is history.

I'm a retired empty-nester, so I turned an empty bedroom into a craft area where I have my computer, a small tv, and my craft table and supplies. (and a small but constant supply of chocolate)

I have so many favorite items that it's really hard to name just one. I use both my Tonic paper cutter and my Scor-pal on a daily basis, so those are 2 items I can't live without.

My favorite technique is embossing, either with embossing folders, embossing powders & ink, or stenciling with brass plates. I just love the look and there's a huge variety of product available for this technique.

My favorite color is purple, but I use a wide spectrum of colors on my cards. I love doing color and sketch challenges which stretch me to create things I normally wouldn't think of doing, often with surprising results!

I read about OWH on someone's blog and clicked the link. I knew it was the perfect way to get my cards into the hands of people who would appreciate and use them! I create cards mostly as a hobby, but it gives me a good feeling to know that when I'm donating them, I'm giving something back to these brave men and women who do so much for us!
