Mel Nunn

Sigh... where do you find these inspirational ladies??

Barbara E.

The gallery rocks!

I love Rachel's style. Absolutely gorgeous!

Bethany Engstrom

Wow! Rachel's work is so it all!

Mandy Ford

Rachel's work is always such an inspiration :)


Oh my gosh, those are beautiful! Love the different ideas.


Well, that stuff is just gorgeous. Makes me fall in love with yellow and decorate my whole house with it.

tA Carbone

I love those wind chimes. Even though I am sure they don't chime but a lot of people don't like to hear the music and this is perfect for those people.

Your DT is the best as the ideas just keep coming in


Michelle Johnston

Let me just say, I love Rachel Denbow, and I love Hambly! Put two of my favorite things together and you're bound to get something great! The gallery is lovely, naturally. And now there's a giveaway! Something from Hambly comes to me in the mail practically once a week...I'd love to add an extra surprise one!


Wow! I love seeing all of the different crafty ideas!

You have some mad skills chica! :)

Auberne' Fox-Hughes

That placemat is simply BEAUTIFUL!!! LOVE IT!!!!!!! ^-^

Jennifer Hisi

Rachel is so great and her style matches Hambly perfectly! Loved the yellow thingy hanging from the ceiling! I want to try that sometime. Off to check her gallery!


Makes me smile just looking at such happy colors! Love that green fabric too!


Rachel's blog is one of my favorites. I love that she is featured here!


What a great gallery Rachel has! Very cool and creative. Love those earrings!!


Love the chandelier from the Guest Designer! Oh, lawd, please pick me for some Hambly!!!! ;) :) :) Love your stuff and the show looked cool.


The earrings are my favorite!

Every time I mess around with shrink plastic I get frustrated and end up trashing my experiments. Using the printed overlays looks so easy!

Alex Hardy

there is so much EYE CANDY here ...
good stuff!

Kathy W

Just visited Rachel's gallery. Very cool stuff! Thanks for the chance to win.

Angela L.

Congrats Rachel, your work is awesome and of course, I am a HUGE fan of Hambly! I would love to win some goodies!


ok, so I'm totally drooling over Rachel's stuff and realize there just isn't enough time during my [work] day to see all those beautiful things posted on the net... it's ok, I take it one day at a time and still take in whatever inspiration I can get on my "down" days ;)


Got my first Hambly screen print and used it on a mini book. Love your product.........
keep it coming !!!!!!!!!!!!


that mobile would look awesome hanging in my dinning area window with all this warm california sun we've been having.


Love Rachels ideas, thanks for sharing them!


Rachels ideas are fab!
Love, love the earrings!

christina c.

I LOVE Rachel's stuff!
thank you so much for picking her as GD!

love me some hambly!


oh wow! i love that chandelier! <3

Leah Arnold

wow! i adore your gallery.

particularly that yellow mobile type did you make that???


It is exploding spring time! Beautiful!

linda p

i love all of the new ways she used your very cool products. so inspiring!!


I love seeing all the non-scrapbookey uses for overlays. So many ideas, not enough time to play!

Julia Stainton

Oh wow! So fresh and perfect for summer! I'm loving these ideas!

Bianca B.

All of the Guests have been so wonderful! Thanks for the inspiration! I would LOVE to receive HAMBLY! Who wouldn't?!? Thanks for the chance!


I love, love, LOVE the hanging mobile thing from Rachel Denbow!!! SSSssOOOOoo cool!!! I'd love to win - I've never had the opportunity to use Hambly and my LSS is ALWAYS sold out!


I love the little travel book!
I think that making the mini album *before* your trip is such a good idea... you can just fill as you go, and it's done when you are home. The amount of detail you can include is probably way better... I need to start that. :]

Thanks for the inspiration once again!


NO FREAKIN WAY! Rachel has got to be my favorite guest designer so far. Her designs are seriously BEYOND INCREDIBLE. So fresh and innovative and they really make you look at Hambly with a fresh perspective! WOW!
Thanks for the chance at some yummy Hambly goodness :)
A girl always needs more Hambly in her life ;)


funky, colourful, and quite retro! Seriously cool.

Denise Morgan

WoW, What a fantastic Gallery Rachel. Very fresh & new ideas!

Kerry G.

Rachel's gallery is ridiculously inspiring. Now I want to make earrings!


Can't seem to link to Rachel's gallery right now, but I absolutely love that yellow mobile - how creative!. I will definitely be giving something like that a try!

Jennifer Findlay

love the gallery and all the new stuff. keep it up!!!

melissa o.

Once again... your gallery rocks! :)


I'm so happy you're in New York. I wish I could make it to Scrapper's Playground, I hope you'll do another class on Long Island.
The gallery has some great ideas.
I hope you pick me for your giveaway!!!

Long Island, NY


woohoo! denbowlicious! off to check out her gallery now. LOVE the GDT roster this year. LOVE IT.

Jane Sarasohn-Kahn

I continue to be bountifully inspired by Hambly Prints' products! Yours were the first transparencies I started to use, and the quality beats others on the market. The designs -- especially the flourishes -- suit my shabby and mixed media approach to papercrafting perfectly. With Rachel's designs, I've got even more lightbulb moments for using these items. Keep up the great work, all of you creative minds! Be well...JSK


I love the gallery, she is one talented chica! I love the earings.

Robyn W - Australia

amazing inspiration thanks Rachel


I love'd me some hambly!!! PLEASE....


okay, i had to come back because HOLY MOLY. rachel always blows me away with how crazy crafty she is - but she has outdone herself and floored me. denbow + hambly = genius.

Debbie Cook

oh my goodness my luck is so bad, but i have to roll the dice for this stuff. amazing! as usual with hambly...


WOW! That is some amazing stuff! Very inspirational!

laura t.

Scrappy Val

Ewww that yellow hanging reminds me of a baby's mobile ..hmmmm that would be kinda cool hanging over a new baby's crib could be a subliminal message that scrapbooking is a good thing LOL

My baby is due Oct 17, 2008 and if you pick me I'll try to re-create a few of these and add to our baby decor..

Thanks for the great idea!!

Cheers ~ Scrappy Val ([email protected])

Hi! I've never tried Hambly Screen Prints products, but after seeing this blog--I really want to!!! I am a big scrapbooker and card maker, so I can think of a zillion ways to use these adorable products!
