DT Introductions: Kimberly Wiener

We're so excited here at Muse: Christmas Visions! We can hardly wait to get started on May 6. Between now and then, we will introduce you to the Design Team members!

First up is Kimberly Wiener of Wienerhoneymooners! (and it's her birthday today!!)

And here she is, in her own words:

Hello Christmas card enthusiasts!  

My name is Kimberly Wiener and I am so excited to join you in this great new adventure in cardmaking.  I live in Washington State with my wonderful family and am very active in the crafting community.  I love making cards every chance that I get and have been making cards and creating crafts long before I became a blogger.  I belong to two card clubs that I meet up with on a regular basis. I am on more than a few card challenge design teams, and I LOVE playing along in challenges, so you may see me around quite a bit.

Each week we will be greeted by a fabulous MUSE to spark your imagination and kick off your creativity.  I am excited that you will join us and we can't wait to see what you will create!

Kimberly's first challenge will be May 6.

We have a little 'stocking stuffer' for one lucky person who leaves a comment on this post. On Saturday, not only will we introduce our next DT member, we will also announce a lucky random winner of a brand new Memory Box Merry Christmas die and a 3-pack of Wink of Stella (silver, gold and clear!)

Memory Box - Fancy Merry Christmas Die - POP-1116 (Christmas) Zig Wink of Stella Brush 3 Colour Set - Christmas Sparkle 3VCS

ETA: Deadline for comments is Saturday morning at 8 am EDT.

Welcome to Muse: ChristmasVisions!

If you love to play along with us at Muse, or if you love to make Christmas cards, this brand new Christmas Card Club is for you!

This is Muse with a Christmas twist - we'll use the same 3 simple rules but add a 4th - your project must be Christmas or winter-themed.

Each Wednesday at 9 am Eastern time, one of our designers will provide you with inspiration to spark your creativity and then, we ask you to follow our 4 simple rules:
  • Use the inspiration card as a starting point
  • Make a Christmas or winter-themed card, explain your interpretation and link back to Muse: ChristmasVisions.
  • Provide supportive comments to at least 3 of your fellow member’s submissions. 
  • Vote for 3 of your fellow members' submissions that you find inspiring.

You can combine with other challenges.  We ask that everyone honour the 4 simple rules. If you don't follow the rules you may be disqualified from a Featured Member win or have your submission removed from the InLinkz. Last but not least, please consider turning off your word verification. Thank you.

If you don't have a blog feel free to use a Flickr Gallery or other online gallery for your Muse cards. Just copy the URL location of your card in your gallery and add it to the Inlinkz.

I'm Ardyth Percy-Robb, and my blog is MASKerade. I am the DT Co-ordinator for Muse: ChristmasVisions, similar to my role on Muse.   I started cardmaking in 2006, at a Stampin’ Up! Party and have never looked back. Before that, I would not have claimed to be crafty or creative at all – I’m an accountant! I live in Toronto, Canada and am currently a SAHM to my two kids. I also volunteer in my daughter’s school and I am the piano accompanist for two children’s choirs.

I love clean, graphic design with bold colours and lots of white space. Christmas cards are a big part of my card making life and I can't wait to get started!

Stay tuned for more information about our Design Team members! We will start introductions next Wednesday, April 29 and our first challenge will go live on Wednesday, May 6, 2015 at 9 am EDT.
