Karen Rogers
Independent Stampin'Up Demonstrator


One lucky person from NZ or Australia will win a Stampin'Up Stamp Set kindly donated by Karen. Karen is an incredibly talented demonstrator based in Waitakere, Auckland. She has lots of fabulous creations on her blog http://www.karenstampz.co.nz/ and if you have any questions about Stampin'Up she will be very happy to help.

Here is what Karen had to say.....

Hi I'm Karen Rogers & I discovered Stampin' Up! just over 3 years ago
shortly after it came to New Zealand. The rest is history as I became a
demonstrator & certainly have had my life changed & enriched by the
experience.
I just love bringing pleasure to so many, either by teaching them in a
workshop/class the joys of stamping & papercrafting or when they receive
something that you've created for them especially. I'm sure we all know the
latter feeling!
I love to blog & that's how I meet Tracy & Lou online, so do pop by my blog
www.karenstampz.co.nz & say hi and if anyone lives in Auckland & would love
a FREE home workshop do drop me a line.
Well I hope you have fun with this week's challenge & I certainly hope to
have a go too; so good luck & my the randomness of random.org be kind to
you.
Karen

One international entrant will receive a $10us Gift Voucher from Shirley's 2 Girls.

Hello and welcome to our third challenge here at Southern Girls Challenge. This weeks challenge is to use 4 layers of patterned paper on your creation. Our DT have made some lovely cards and layouts to inspire you but before I get to that we have some exciting news...... due to some resignations from the team ( we obviously aren't excited about that part) we are on the hunt for a GUEST DESIGNER for Challenge # 5 on the 4th November. If you are interested in the position all you have to do is upload your layout, card or OTP project in the usual way (INT after your name if you aren't from Australia or New Zealand) and leave us a comment in the comments section letting us know you are interested.

If you are NOT from New Zealand or Australia please can you put INT after your name, this ensures that you get in the correct prize draw
We don't mind if you combine our challenge with others however please only link 1 entry per person. Please link only your blog post not your entire blog, also be sure to link back to our challenge on your post. Any entries not following these rules may be removed at our discretion.
