Please welcome our guest designer:

Hi!!  My name is Elin Venge and I am honored to be the DYSU guest designer this week. I grew up in Oslo, Norway, but have called many other places home; at 19 I had lived in four different countries on four different continents. I love traveling and discovering new slices of paradise almost as much as I love fiddling with paper, embellishments and glue. I started making cards about a year and a half ago, and became addicted. I’m a Copics lover at heart and always have to go back to coloring images whenever I’ve ventured outside my comfort zone by making something without my precious markers. My usual style is a colored image on top of layers upon layers of cs and pp, often with sewed, distressed and chalked edges, heavy usage of pearls, flowers, charms, seam binding (colored with Copics), punches and diecuts. Another trademark of mine is that I always decorate all the sides on my cards. I started a blog about 10 months ago where I post my creations, feel free to roam around at

Now get inspired by our Design Team:

Happy Crafting!
We hope you play along 
and share your precious creations with us!!
