SKETCH Saturday-Apr 19-LAUREN MEADER

Our featured sketch artist today is LAUREN MEADER.


Here's a little about her:


Hi, my name is Lauren Meader.
I began stamping in April 2004, and haven’t stopped since!
It has gone from a hobby to a passion.

I became a Stampin Up! demonstrator in February 2005. My passion wasn’t going home to home to sell product, but more teaching people how to use it. I love sharing my creativity with others. March 2007 was my debuting month as part of The Dirty Dozen design team @ SCS, where I was given the oppourtunity to design with a group of amazingly talented women, over a 6 month period.

I am now fulfilling my dream as a concept designer for several companies, that I LOVE- All That Scraps, Craft Critique-Featured Reporter, Gina K Designs Stamps for a Cause, Green Grass Stamps, Lizzie Anne Designs, My Favorite Things, Papertrey Ink, Scor-Pal Design Team, and am a Smilebox Avaitor!

I even do an occassional guest designer spot!

In between concept work, and family, I try to squeeze out some design’s for calls for publication in magazines!

Since this is my passion it hardly feels like “work”.

I am married to a wonderful, and supportive man, named Jason. I stay home with our three children- Alexa, Noah, and Amber. They make my life worth living, and keep it very busy, and interesting. Alexa had Down Syndrome, and in Feb. 2006 was diagnoised with Leukemia. That exierience has taught me so much! I was previously a nurse for 7 years, and much to my husbands dismay, think I may just stick to my dream of making papercrafting my career!

I think Im on my way!

You miss 100% of the chances you DON’T take!


Her blog is My Time, My Creations, My Stampendence.


Here is her sketch and card.

My card is 5 1/2" squared.

I used my daughter's stamp set.
All procedes from the sale of that set go to Pediatric Leukemia and Lymphona society :D
People can find it here

I also used a sentiment and bkgd image from Stamping Bella-
