Anna-Karin: Anna-Karin on FlickrMy name is Anna-Karin and I have been doing arts and crafts my whole life, but papercrafting is the one that has totally captured my heart and mind. I have been making cards since 2002, when I got the idea of making my own Christmas cards. It turned out to be a brilliant idea and cardmaking has given me numerous hours of fun since then. I also scrapbook and enjoy switching between the differently sized spaces of a card and a scrapbooking layout. Stamps are my absolute favorite tools and I love creating something using only white paper, stamps, and ink. I especially enjoy trying out new and old techniques, to experiment and try different products and tools. The possibilities are truly endless.
My husband is always willing to give suggestions and pick out cards to send to family and friends. We have a little boy who is just over a year and already knows what you are supposed to do with a stamp. None of his toys can beat a wood-mounted stamp. I am very happy to be a guest designer at Card Patterns!
And here's what our cool team came up with the sketch.
