Janett Ray  will be joining OCS as a Guest Designer for this month.

My name is Janett Ray and I have been stamping for 25 years. My first love is making cards but I have done scrapbooking when my children were young. I also enjoy crafts, photography, crochet, and gardening.

My stamping style changes with the times. I enjoy using new products and trying new techniques from different card folds to different way to color an image. I do love to color and create different background with my stamps.
