The Classic Beauty of Emerald Forest – by Robin Parker

We have a treat for you this evening!  We’ve been fortunate to be able to get Robin Parker as a Guest Designer.  In case you don’t know, Robin is Darsie’s sister and she is visiting at Darsie’s for the Thanksgiving holiday, so the girls have been getting crafty!  So much talent in one family — WOW!  Robin was playing with the beautiful Emerald Forest Collection by Anna Griffin.  I asked her to come up with a few clean and simple cards for Christmas.  As we all know, it’s getting near crunch time to get those cards made.  And believe me, if you haven’t made yours yet, these samples by Robin will blow you away.  They are SO simple, yet exuding classic elegance.  JUST STUNNING!!!  Each of them!  First, I’d like to introduce you to Robin, then we can take a peek at her project:


Welcome, Robin! So happy you could join us!

She posts her creations at her blog, Robin’s Creative Nest.

Now, on to her gorgeous project for today:


This is Robin’s clean and simple trio of Christmas cards using stickers – yes, stickers!!!  Beautiful stickers!!!
