My name is Tiffany Pastor and I have been a "behind the scenes" gal with Cruise and Crop since it's inception back in 2006. While Gail and Cheri are the creative geniuses pouring into C&C, I tend to be available for some good 'ole fashioned grunt work from time to time. My husband Luke is Gail's son (and Cheri's big brother), and I have loved helping with CHA conventions, helping lead Cruise and Crop Cruises, and being an all-around cheerleader for the incredible company that Cruise and Crop has become.
A little about me... I am a stay at home mom with two awesome children and incredibly loving husband. I feel so blessed to spend so much time with my kids while they are young! I also do freelance graphic design work which is easy to do from home. Then there is my fun pleasure.... CRAFTING! I have a closet in our spare room filled with craft goodies, and on occasion I steal away and "get my craft on"! I have been blessed to merge my graphic design skills with the crafty chick inside of me, and I have been a Stamp Designer for Papertrey Ink for three years.
Today I am showcasing my newest release: Frilly Flowers and dies. Frilly Flowers retails for $24 and the coordinating dies retail for $22 at Papertrey Ink's online store. It's a "must-have" die and stamp set with tons of versatility. The set includes jumbo-sized flowers with grungy and swirly designs. They are perfect for layering pieces, creating whimsical backgrounds, or making your own fashion accents. Just think of the fun you can have die cutting these fabulous shapes with tulle, fabric, felt and more!
Lately, a bunch of my friends, from all over the country, have been announcing that a baby is on the way. With all these pregnant mommies, I just had to make a little card to celebrate! I LOVE babies as well as the glow of an expectant mom. It is all really such a miracle! I coupled the dies and stamps to make the flower combos. The green leaves are also part of the set as well. PTI colors are Hawaiian Shores, Simply Chartreuse, Berry Sorbet, and Terracotta Tile. Love these colors!!
Please check out my blog for more inspirations using the "Frilly Flowers" stamps and dies. You will fall in love!
We hope you've enjoyed our first Guest Designer. More to come!
