Introducing Our July Guest Designer

The Heart 2 Heart Design Team is delighted to welcome Gretchen Stumme to join us this month!  Here's a info about her.

Hi!  My name is Gretchen Stumme and I have been a crafter/artist for as long as I can remember.  I’ve tried a variety of mediums at one time or another, but paper-crafting has stuck as one of my favorites.  I bought my first stamp to use on the back of my wedding invitations and was instantly hooked. 

I am a Marketing Specialist as well as a Close To My Heart consultant.  I love teaching workshops in book making, paper arts, and quilting.  If you don’t find me in my studio behind my paper cutter or sewing machine, I’m probably out and about behind my camera.  The local zoo animals are my favorite subjects! 

I grew up in Connecticut, but have lived in Upstate New York with my husband Dave since our college years.

Please welcome Gretchen!

Gretchen, from one Upstate New Yorker to another...near Buffalo, NY but now live in sunny Arizona...no more snow unless we want to see it up north. Congrats on being the Guest Designer...I've seen your name and inspiring creations in several challenges and after retirement I have an addiction for challenges. My daughter is also a CTMH Consultant and also changed location to Arizona.
