Meet our May 2012 Guest Artist - Jackie Rakoski

We are thrilled to introduce you to another one of our fantastic guest artists. This month Jackie Rakoski has joined us and has been sharing adorable cards using images from our latest release. Here is a little about Jackie in her own words…
I am thrilled to a Guest Designer for the month of May at Whimsie Doodles. When I found out that I was selected I was beyond excited and I just couldn’t wait to get started! So far I have been having all sorts of fun this month with Whimsie Doodles!

I was born and raised in New Jersey, but recently relocated to Kansas. I began stamping about ten years ago when a frequent library patron and SU Demo hosted a scrapbooking class for the town to attend. I should have run in the other direction, instead I became one of the younger stampers around.  I was 16 years old at the time and a junior in high school. After that scrapbooking class I began participating in swaps and going to SU parties between school and work and loved every minute of it. When I went to college my stamping went on hold, but my stamp collection continued to grow. After graduating with my Bachelors of Architecture Degree I jumped right back into stamping, only this time I had more supplies then I knew what to do with (I still do!).

Getting back into the swing of things I started finding new stamp companies and learning more about stamping. One of my close friends was a part of the Whimsie Doodles Design Team and since that time I have been following Whimsie Doodles. I do hope you enjoy what I create this month as a Guest Designer, I know that I am enjoying every minute of it myself!
