Guest Designer - Louise Hodge

It is time to say hello and welcome to a new Guest Designer.  Meet Louise Hodge of Passion Creations who was the Design Team's Top Pick from our A Very Vintage Halloween challenge and take a look at her wonderful project for our Home From The Holidays challenge.


"I'm a proud mother of two grown boys and live in Quebec, Canada on a farm with my hubby and two labs.

 I have been stamping for 9 years, it all started after I created a 50th wedding anniversary album for my parents and fell in love with this hobby.

I don't really have a specific style, I like trying all kinds of new techniques finding just the right embellishment and sparkle to add. I create mostly cards however lately have a craving for home decor and altered projects.

I'm so thrilled and honored to be GDT at Frilly and Funkie for this challenge with such an amazing and talented team."


"For this challenge of "Home for the Holidays" I created an Advent Calendar using Tim Holtz matchbox die. I used papers from his Seasonal paper stash as well as Nostalgic Kraft-core to give it that vintage look. I created the gifts and gift bags with the help of my scor-pal, the snow effect was built up with tissue paper and glass glitter (lots of it).

I'm very pleased how it turned out and it will be a beautiful focal point on my mantle. Hope you all like it."
