Special QKD Welcome to Designer Kelly Kost

The 3rd anniversary QKD party continues. Welcome bloggers to a very special QKD Blog Hop. Today we're showcasing designer Kelly Kost. She designed this Cookie the Baker stamp for Queen Kat Designs. I used it to make the cover of this recipe book which is a Christmas gift for my daughter, who makes the best chocolate chip cookies ever!


If you give a mouse a cookie...then I had to make some gift tags for all of the goodies she's going to whip up and give away during the holidays.
If you scroll down my blog, you'll see lots of ideas using QKD stamps. I'll be blogging more holiday ideas in the coming weeks. So use my special coupon code HH10 in the QKD store to get yourself set up with an additional 10% discount and some fun stamps for holiday crafting.

Don't forget to join me, the other Design Team members of the Royal Court, and Queen Kat, herself, for a live chat tonight at Paper Craft Planet. See details in the blog post below.

Now I'll tell a little story on myself. I visited Archivers and saw this recipe book with the Maya Road album with acrylic stand and the Cosmo Cricket papers. I thought it would be perfect for my Cookie the Baker stamp project. (Archivers is offering a class but I'm doing it my way, as usual). I snagged the patterned paper, but when I got home I realized I didn't buy any coordinating cardstock. So I spent one evening digging through all of my kit club packets and misc. papers I've collected (remember, I'm a paperholic) and came up with the perfect colors for the card stock (whew!) So even though I have to give them credit for the basic idea, my album will be unique with stamped images and other papers and embellies. You gotta luv inspiration wherever you find it! And today I found out Maya Road has some new minis which I plan to buy so that I can add a tiny chipboard spoon on the cover!
