Meet our Guest Designer for Sketch #64...

The wonderfully talented Mandy Kay Starner!!!! Mandy's design style is so eye-catching and unique you will be blown away by her layouts!!! We are thrilled she is here this month and not only did she create one layout but she LOVED the sketch SO MUCH she created TWO!!!! So it is definitely double the inspiration week here at IB!!! Here is a little bit about Mandy and her very creative takes on Sketch #64...

Hello there! My name is Mandy Starner, you can just call me Mk. I live in Maryland with my incredibly handsome and supportive husband, our 3 beautiful daughters, and our 2 crazy dogs. On any given evening you can find me at my desk, digging through paper and stickers, chatting with friends and making pretty things. I love to read, paint, paper craft, and sew. I haven't quite figured out how to use my camera in manual mode...yet. I collect owls and typewriters. I love all things vintage and modern. I am really good at wasting time and spending money. And I'm excited to be a guest designer for Inspired Blueprints!
