DOdesign Team: Introducing Laurie & Circle Circus, Day #2

Welcome to Day#2 of DOdesigner Laurie Zoellmer's projects!

Today I'm sharing a super cute Triple Fold card Laurie made with the yummy Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series paper!



I just LOVE all of the details on this card.  The use of the In-Color markers of the greeting (my favorite greeting from the All Holidays stamp set) is fabulous.  Look at those clear buttons with the hemp twine - cute stamping behind them.  Colors are Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo & Crushed Curry.


Here are a couple of 6x6 projects.  One is a scrapbook page and the other a card.  They both use the same materials.  The colors are Soft Suede and Bermuda Bay.

One more day of projects to share with you.  Come back tomorrow!

Enjoy~Dawn O

DOdesign Team: Introducing Laurie & Circle Circus

With the release of the 2009-2010 Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog, I invited one of my DOstamperSTARS to join my DOdesign Team.  She accepted and created some fabulous samples I'll be sharing with you this week.

First off, let me know introduce you to...Laurie Zoellmer


I met Laurie 2 years ago at a party I did for one of my Scrapbooking Club Members.  I immediately knew she would join Stampin' Up!  Why?  Because she had so much enthusiam and knowledge of the Stampin' Up! product.  She even finished my sentences!  So I sent her home with some information and suggested she contact her current demonstrator about the Stampin' Up! opportunity.  Imagine my surprise and delight when she contacted me a couple months later about joining my team. 

She's been such a blessing to have on my team.  I love to see her smiling face at my events.  She does fabulous work and has generously shared her talents several times at my DOstamperSTAR meetings.  If fact - she was recently one of my DOstamperSUPERSTARS!

On to her projects...


I love they way she used the new In-Color Polka Dot Ribbon on this card.  Super Cute!


Isn't this gable box just adorable? 

Supplies used:  Circle Circus Stamp Set, New In-Colors Cardstock, Ink & Ribbon, Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper, Build-a-Brad, Punches: Scallop Circle, 1/2" Circle, Sm, Large, Wide & Scallop Ovals, 1-1/4" & 1-3/8" Square Punches.

Tomorrow I'll share her fun fold card!  Thanks Laurie!

Enjoy~Dawn O
