So, without further ado, let's meet our Creative and Guest Creative Crafters!
First off is Essy Tan or more popular with her Instagram handle @ilove.ice and the shop owner of @ilove.mysky. I chose Essy not only for her style of crafting and planning but also because of her dedication with her craft. She is mother of three beautiful children but amidst all the responsibilities and sometimes chaotic duty of motherhood, she still manage to allot time to craft and do her passion. She is truly an inspiration not only to me but to many others.
Essy's planner decoration style that is dainty with tons of floral with pop of colors; both bright and pastel tones! She has always been into cute accessories and always been into girly planner style. But just recently, she decided to incorporate her love of vintage to her planner spread and crafts.

Next, is Belle Fenix, a.k.a @the_craftroom_project the exceptional graphic artist behind her BFF's shop @papillon.creative. I chose Belle because her feed is on point! She posts nothing but stunning photo after photo after photo of spreads, crafts and planner set- ups. Her innate talent and artistry truly shows in her every project! Creative crafter or not, I am always her biggest fan.
Her planner design reflects her zodiac sign, Gemini. It shows her very keen appreciation with arts as she could always come up with; I must say, spectacular projects. Indeed, a very versatile and highly artistic designer.

As the cliche goes, the "last but never the least", the creative crafter to complete the team is Liona Guzman of @LionaChinky. I chose Chinky because looking back in my early months in creative planning in 2014, Chinky's page is part of my long "gawking list" (lol). She enabled me to try rubber stamps (even the cheapest ones) because of her DIY rubber stamps and on how she functionally and decoratively uses them on her spreads.
Per Chinky her design style is that she uses hybrid of different planning styles but with consistent focus on decorating with functionality thus she makes her planner pages pretty by using functional stickers, doilies with dash of colors mint, teal or aqua and anything gold. She actually uses several planners to keep herself organized and be on top of her schedule.

I will just write down the Guest Crafters as I intend to (hopefully!!) create a similar blog for them.
