Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Celebrate (All Month Long)

Welcome to the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!!

This MONTH (yes, the Celebrate challenge is open for the entire month of July) we are inviting you to join us for...


 The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a Guest Designer in an upcoming challenge!

We have so much to CELEBRATE this month...
It's Curtain Call's 3rd Anniversary and...
 we have added two fabulous designers to our crew!

Melody Rupple, A Paper Melody

My name is Melody Rupple. I have always been crafty. I learned to sew when I was in my teens, made proms dresses, and went on to sew for my girls. I still have the simple scrapbooks I made in high school. I started making family scrapbooks when my children were young. I discovered card making about seven years, opening a whole new world of blogging, challenges, and on-line shopping!

I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to design for a number of wonderful stamp companies. I enjoy guest designing and playing along with card making and scrapbook challenges.

Betty Wright, Crafting With Betty

I have been doing crafty things for as long as I can remember.  However, my love for paper crafting did not really begin until I became a stay at home mom.   The need for a creative outlet was exactly that, a need.   I started scrap booking and from that card making. Even though I work full time these days and the kids are almost grown, I still really need to paper craft.  I find it very therapeutic and calming.   I am still amazed to see what I can create with paper!

Please join us in welcoming our newest Guest Designer, too!
Tammy  Hershberger, Stamp Happy

Hi! I am Tammy Hershberger! I have been married to my wonderful husband Bill for 25 years, and am mom to two beautiful daughters, Kaylie and Kelsey. By day I work in the front office at a behavioral healthcare agency, and by night I’m immersed in stamping and papercrafts. In addition to stamping (which helps me avoid housework!) I enjoy going antiquing with my hubby, and spoiling my daughters, as well as reading, cooking, biking, and activities at my church. I am a native of the Buckeye State, and reside in the teeny-tiny town of Marshallville, Ohio.

Next up, is the ever-fabulous Curtain Call Crew with their amazing projects!
