The Cheerful Stamp Pad is pleased to announce its first Guest Designer. She is LaCretia Ogle. Below is a little about. her.
I think I was born with a crayon in my hand. I have been drawing, painting, coloring, cutting, gluing and creating things as long as I can remember. I majored in art through high school, and took a few courses in Jr. College. I wanted to be an art teacher. I have tried many avenues for my creativity.
I stumbled into rubber stamping about 1994, when a friend invited me to a Stamping Up party, where I bought my first set of stamps. I was really into learning scrapbooking at the time and I owned 1 stamp that was bought to make tags for altered clothing
I sure I have MSD, multiple style disorder, as I enjoy making the simplest cards to the very distressed, to Victorian, to the multi layers, to collage, and the list goes on. I have a “what if……?” attitude, so I try many different techniques, then tweak them with my “what if…?”
I’ve been fortunate enough to have some of my work published years ago. Then I was led down the scrapbooking path again and now I am full circle back to rubber stamping and loving every minute of it. I had forgotten how much I enjoy coloring and creating and most of all the comradery of fellow rubber stampers. The comments left on my blog keep me inspired to do more and to do it better.
