I have a friend who is one half of the dynamic, techno-savvy, always-engaging real estate duo, the Geeky Girls! Both girls are dear to me, but it was Lisa‘s birthday last month and Dale and I wanted to make something special for her. Dale and Lisa are huge fans of Chucks/Cons/Converse All Stars, those uncomfortable flat high-top tennis shoes, so when Dale saw shoe charms that looked like Chucks, he had to get them for her! He started making earrings in December and they’ve become a huge hit with friends and anyone who has seen his creations. Check out Designs by Dale on Facebook.

Here is the picture Lisa shared when she received our package:

This is the card I made for her using my Cricut Expression machine for the “geeky” letters and DCWV paper for the card itself. I also used a Fiskars edge punch, silver shimmery paper and a white pen for the greeting.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
