Designer Highlight-Angji Pruente

Hello everyone! It's time for another edition of Designer Highlight and the featured designer is yours truly! 

I have been crafting for almost a decade now. It all started when a friend who scrapbooked convinced me to make Christmas cards one year. After that, I jumped head first into this hobby and haven't looked back since! I started working for Riley and Company a few years ago when they had a brick and mortar store and really enjoyed it. When Tanya (aka Head Moose) asked me to be her Design Team coordinator, I jumped at the chance! The rest, as they say, is history. 

For my project today I made a Halloween themed vignette from a lantern kit by The Gentleman Crafter, Jim Hankins. I had so much fun decorating and setting the scene that I had to force myself to stop! I hope you enjoy my project as much I as enjoyed making it!

Here are a few of my favorite recent projects

 Smiling Burt and I put the PRO in procrastinate (retired)

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope my projects have inspired you to make some time to visit your craft room and get snarky with Riley & Company! Be sure to follow us on Facebook!

See you tomorrow with another edition of Delightfully Dolores!

Delightfully Dolores-Halloween Fun!

Hello everyone! We have another treat for you today! It's time for another Delightfully Dolores project. I actually squealed out loud when I saw it. Dolores really blew my socks off this month! Check it out and read the description in her own words:

Happy Halloween, Riley fans.  This month I used a box card die from Our Daily Bread for the base of my project.  Each character, FrankenRiley, Bridezilla, DracuRiley, Wicked Witch Sophie and Mummy Riley, was colored with Copic markers and cut out by hand.  "Boo" is a Poppy Stamp die placed on the moon along with some wisps of cotton for clouds.  All the characters are glued to a strip of acetate.  The spiders are from a Martha Stewart punch on glossy black card stock and the graveyard is a die from a Used Stamp Sale. Unfortunately, I don't know the manufacturer.  I wish you all a Spooktacular Halloween. See you next month. 

I told you Dolores knocked it out of the park, didn't I? See you next time, until then I'm going to drool over this card a bit longer. Hehe
