June Release Guest Designers!

Hello and Happy Monday! 
Today I get to share our TWO awesome Guest Designers for our June Release!

This month we will be joined by Ria Montefalcon and Donna Idlet! They will be helping us with our two new June Release in just a couple weeks! 

Here's some more about our two fabulous guest designers in their own words - Make sure to check out their blogs and say hello to them!

Donna Idlet
Creative Lady
Hi---I love making cards!  But first and foremost I am a wife, mother and mema.  My husband is a retired colonel from the U.S. Army, who served 30 years of service.  He is truly an amazing husband, father, and papa who is dedicated to his family and supports me in all of my endeavors.  I have a son, a daughter and three beautiful grandchildren, who are the loves of my life.

My travels have been vast as I was fortunate to live abroad and in multiple states around the Country.  The most interesting thing about traveling is seeing all the beauty that surrounds the World which has shaped my life and eye for creativity.

I have always loved crafting and I inherited that trait honestly because My mother was a home economics major in college. Growing up I always wanted to be in fashion shows, because she would make me new clothes.  She is truly a talented and inspirational artist.  She makes quilts and wearable art clothing, so this is why I give all the credit to her.

Moving forward, I love Scrapbooking--traditional and digital.  I love, love, love making cards, altered art, and photography.  I always strive to integrate my joys that I captured or created in my designs to share with others through blogging.  I just wish there were more hours in the day. 
Here's a card Donna made for a previous Inky Paws Challenge. She used our Spring Showers set to make this fun get well card! So cute! 

Ria Montefalcon
Heart for Handmade

I'm so thrilled to be part of Newton's Nook Designs Guest Designer for June.

I’m Ria Montefalcon, a mom to KC and aunt to Abiel and Aidan. Philippines is my home country but I currently live in a small city yet my home for a couple of years now, Doha, Qatar. I’m a marketing professional by day and a crafter by night. I have loved arts and craft ever since I was a little girl, from a handmade card for grandma, stamping with coloring, to even sewing dresses for my little dolls.

I find my style clean and simple. Love to play with patterned papers, stamps and do try techniques I haven’t done before. I also love sewing so you will see some of my sewn crafts and needle works at my blog So happy to share my works with you all.

Here's an adorable birthday card Ria made using our Newton's Birthday Bash stamp set:
