This Week's Guest Designer





Hi! I’m Darlene Pavlick (akronstamperdpk) and I live in Akron, Ohio. Husband, Mark & I are originally from Pittsburgh, PA and that is where our families reside. We have one daughter who is married with two teenage children and her own accounting business. She is the one who got me started in paper crafting about 8 years ago. She was selling Creative Memories and her friend Mindy (a fellow scrapper) was selling Stampin’ Up … to make a long story short, that’s where it all began and I’ve been paper crafting every day since. It is my passion and mental therapy! I’ve been blessed to meet SO MANY wonderful ladies around the world, many have become personal friends and I’m not done yet!



I’m so thrilled to have been asked to be one of the Summer Guest Designer’s for Joan’s Gardens … thanks Joan and Selma for this wonderful opportunity! I hope you all enjoy what I have to share with you today. And by all means … give it a try!


It’s a pleasure to meet you all! Please come visit me at Dar’s Crafty Creations at http://darscraftycreations.blogspot.com/


 This week we are featuring, Darlene Pavlick as our Guest Designer.  She has designed two beautiful Picture Frames for you and has prepared a great tutorial.  Darlene creates beautiful projects showcased on her blog,  has been very active in participating in challenges at Joan's Gardens, and has attended most of my workshops.   She has prepared a great tutorial to show you how to take a plain picture frame and turn it into a beautiful  piece of art.  Selma and I hope you will go to her  blog to read her tutorial then submit a similar project to Joan's Garden's Challenge Link. Thank you Darlene for preparing this great tutorial.
