Tribute To Joanne Grzelak


Joanne Grzelak
16th November ?? - 25th May 2019

Hi everyone,

As many of you may have already heard by now, our friend and fellow Design Team member passed away suddenly on the 25th May 2019. Joanne had been battling a few health issues recently so hadn't played along with the challenges for a few months, but she was looking forward to getting back into her stamp cave so you could play again.

Joanne was one of the foundation members of our Crazy 4 Challenges challenge blog being one of the first members Vicki Garrett, Cindy Haffner and I (Frances Byrne) invited to join our Design Team when we first started this challenge blog back in September 2009.

Joanne was very much loved in the stamping community and was very active on Splitcoast Stampers going by the name of Jojot.  Joanne had two blogs The Inky Ocean Gazer and The Inky Ocean Gazer 2


 Today we have asked the members of the two challenge Design Teams she was in CCEE Stampers and Crazy 4 Challenges and a few special stamping friends to join us in this special tribute blog hop to honour our stamping friend by either:


1. Create a card depicting one of the things she loved which included:
  • The Ocean
  • Lighthouses
  • Black and White Cards (Joanne created the most wonderful Black & White Cards)
  • Her Dogs
  • Paper Piercing
2. CASEing a card Joanne created on either of her blogs  The Inky Ocean Gazer and The Inky Ocean Gazer 2 or SCS Gallery

    It's always sad when someone pass away, but in this case, she leaves a lot of inspiration behind.
