Guest Blogger Barb Schram

We are so excited to announce that Barb Schram will be our guest blogger this week. This week we will be posting twice a day - Barb Schram will be inspiring you with projects you can make with our current collection and our design team we will be showing you more sneak peeks of our 2009 Spring Collection.
You may remember Barb's work from the JustRite Stampin' Champion Contest. If you are not familiar with her blog Dream.Explore.Discover and her outstanding will be adding her to your google reader list shortly. What we love about Barb is how she loves to think outside of the box and how she loves to make affordable thoughtful gifts. She is definitely addicted to JustRite Font - here are a few of our favorite Barb Schram JustRite Projects from 2008.. Wait til you see what she has designed for JustRite this week. Don't miss a day!!

Wouldn't this be fun to case and turn into a Valentine's Day Card!!

And as you will see she just loves 6 pt small letters...can't wait to see what she will do when the new 15 point letters arrive!!

She loves making personalized gifts and will be sure to inspire you everytime you visit her blog.

Barb tell us where you live. I live in, at this moment cold, snowy, west Michigan!

Tell us about your family.I have been married for 29 years and counting! We have two grown daughters and are expecting our first grandchild in a couple weeks!

How long have you been stamping? I have been stamping off and on all my life! I have always been involved in some type of craft hobby, but especially love incorporating stamping with paper crafting creations.

Where you do you do your stamping? At this time, I have turned a spare bedroom into a makeshift studio...I am taking notes on all the recent studio designs though, because my husband has promised a real studio when we move! Hopefully next year!

What is your must have stamping tool?This is a tough one...Lately, I have to have my daubers at hand, and the crop a dile, and...the list could go on and on!

H0w long have you been blogging?I have been blogging not quite a year! My family thinks this is especially interesting since the computer and I never really got along! LOL

Who are your 3 favorite designers that inspire you? I try to learn from each and every creation I look at...I feel they all have something to gain knowledge from. With that said, in no particular order, I so admire and look up to: Sharon Johnson, Debbie Olson, and Nichole Heady. I'm such a fan and learn so much each time I visit their blogs and view their work. Could you imagine working alongside them, all in the same room? A girl can dream!

Currently who is your favorite Paper Company? Currently, I reach for my new K & Company paper quite a bit, and I especially love Papertreyink's card stock and patterned papers.

Tell us besides JustRite, what are you currently addicted to??
Hmmm...probably ribbon, not that I use it a whole lot, I just collect it! And adhesive pearls!

What is your favorite paper crafting season and why.
We're blessed in Michigan to experience all four seasons, but fall is probably my favorite. I was married in the fall, I love the trees when the colors change, the fruit of the harvest, fall does not last long enough for me! The colors fall produces are gorgeous; all the variances of greens, oranges, yellows, and purples of the season are a terrific palette to choose from when stamping!

We will be back later tonight with more CHA Sneak Peeks!! And Projects we will be teaching at CHA!!

Keep us in mind....."When it needs to be JustRite".
