Julie Steed

 Happy Halloween month!  My name is Julie Steed and I hail from the often-soggy Pacific NW section of the U.S.  I am accompanied on life’s adventures by my husband of 23 years, Chris, my daughter (19) and two sons (17 & 14), and some furry and feathery friends.

As a child my favorite part of school was when the teacher pulled out the art supplies.  Color, texture and composition still catch my eye.  To support my paper and stamp buying habits I opened an Etsy shop, Elves In The Attic, in 2009.   I love quirky and unusual images and relish getting messy in the studio.  Stop by my blog, www.ElvesInTheAttic.blogspot.com, to see what I’ve been up to.

Julie created these gorgeously creepy ATCs using Stampotique Stamps.  

And now for some inspiration from our Design Team...
