Designer Highlight-Sandye Curry!!!

Hello everyone! I hope you had a lovely holiday weekend. It is my pleasure to bring you another edition of Designer Highlight featuring fantastic work of Sandye Curry! If you have followed Riley & CO for any length of time you will no doubt recognize Sandye's work. Take it away Sandye!


Hello there Moose lovers! It's Sandye here, one of the Riley design team members.

My picture was taken at the Riley booth at Stampaway in Cincinnati. If you ever get a chance to go to a stamp show where Tanya is appearing with Riley and/or Prickley Pear stamps, be sure to GO!!! I've taken some of her classes as well, and they are fantastic! They fill up quickly, as everyone loves them.

I can't remember when I started crafting--I just think I always have! I have many wonderful memories of sitting with my mother at our dining room table, and making ...something, ...anything! If you name a craft, I have tried it! My favorites, however, are of course cardmaking, knitting, needlepoint, and I have just started quilting. I have lots of free time as I am a retired high school teacher. If we are not traveling (my first love), I am crafting.

My first project today is one I have been making for several years. Joy (a Riley design team member), Yoorah (a Riley supporter), and Michele (a former Riley DT member) and I often divide up the months and share calendars with each other. It's a wonderful project to do with friends. You think of them every time you look at your calendar! The images I used are

January-- Snow Ski Riley

February --Couch Riley

March--Felix the Cat with Beer Mug Small

May--Flower Bonnet

June--Tourist Riley

July--Patriot Riley

August--Seaside Sophie

September--Raking Leaves Riley;

October--Witch on Broom

November--Lucy Cooking

 The mini calendars are readily available on the internet, and if you are very careful cutting the size, you can reuse your calendar cards for the next year; just glue on new calendars!

Here's the way I use my calendar pages--the current month attached to a large clip (purchased from a local craft store) sitting right by my desk! I love these--and have made many sets as Christmas presents for friends. You have plenty of time to complete this:)

I wanted to share a couple of my favorite projects with you. I love pop-up box cards. I made two recently, one a Halloween card:

and another a graduation card:

The last project I'm sharing with you is a nugget cake. I gave this to a friend for her childrens' table at Thanksgiving. Her granddaughter said that looking at it just made her happy. I agree, as Riley plus chocolate should make anyone happy!

Be sure to keep checking my blog, Sandye's Creations, as I will have many more Riley creations to share with you. Bye for now!


I told you Sandye's work was great, didn't I?? I even found myself thinking about making a calendar set for myself! Which Riley images would you use for your calendar???
