Today we are pleased to welcome the following ladies to our Design Team - Alison, Lucinda, EK, Myrna, Andreja and Evelyn. Let the ladies introduce themselves:
Hi, I'm Alison
I live in the UK with my husband, who is very tolerant of my stamping passion. Currently two of our three children are resident, they come and go like boomerangs. I like gardening, flowers, cooking a good book and being creative. I don't like having my photo taken. I've been stamping for a few years and love getting inky and trying out new techniques. The best thing about visiting all the amazing blogs is collecting ideas and trying them out. I've been following 52CCT for a couple of years and it has dramatically reduced the last minute card panic. I'm very happy to be joining the DT team and so much looking forward to the challenges and visiting the entries. I hope I won't feel the need to buy every new stamp and die I see!
I am Andreja and I come from a small and beautiful country Slovenia, Europe. I am married 14 years, but unfortunately we do not have children. We both have some hobbies. So, for me is creating a great consolation. I am a creative person since I remember. Now create cards and other 7 years. I make the most greeting cards and other paper creations, but I am doing the other things, too, when I have time. I am very happy to be art of this great "Christmas all year" team:-) Hugs, Andreja
EK Gorman is a self-taught mixed media artist who ventured into the addicting world of paper crafting a few short years ago. Quickly she discovered building small pieces of art inside the frame of a card to be ridiculously satisfying. When not locked into her desk designing or painting, EK is busy raising her three little kiddos and doting love onto her husband and family dog.
Hi, I am Evelyn.
I live in the south of Germany and I love travelling and crafting. Since I was able to hold a pencil, I was crafting, painting and drawing. During my stay in the USA in 2001 I discovered my passion for stamping. I love to combine stamps with every kind of colouring medium and I am always curious to try new techniques. Even when I am travelling I am having a kind of first-aid-crafting kit with me, so that I can always do something creative. I am very happy to have the opportunity to join the DT of the 52CCT as this was for years a wonderful inspiration source for creating Christmas cards all over the year and I am looking forward to visiting your entries to get even more inspiration.
Hello, I'm Lucinda. I live in Berkhamsted, just north of London in the UK, with my husband Neale and two year old daughter Bethany. I've been crafting since I was a child: sewing, knitting, building things out of cereal boxes, and of course, making cards. In the past few years, I've focussed a lot more on paper craft, learning a lot of new techniques, and expanding my crafty stash. I'm now starting to explore mixed media as well. Taking part in the 52CCT this year has meant that for the first time ever, I don't have a last minute rush to make Christmas cards before the posting deadline. I've had fun making cards all year, so I'm delighted to join the team. I share my creations at lucindacreates.blogspot.co.uk.
I started card making about 5 years ago when my friend introduced me to her Cricut Machine. Since then I discovered Pinterest and You Tube and I do it all - stamping, stencilling, die cutting, water colouring, Copic markers, and multi medai. I love it all. I am retired, no kids, two furkids (Taylor & Swiff), and besides making cards, I love reading those trashy romance novels, photography and travel. I am looking forward to working with everyone. I have made a card for today too - here it is:
We are so pleased to welcome them all to the Design Team.
Now, a quick reminder that you still have plenty of time to join in with our last challenge of the year. We want you to make a Christmas card and you can PICK A PREVIOUS 2016 CHALLENGE. The tabs at the top of the page will take you to our previous challenges. You can use one you really like, or have a go at one you missed. Our challenge closes at midnight (GMT) on Wednesday 28th December (that's 7.00pm EST in the States). We will announce the winners of the December challenge on Wednesday 4th January 2017.
Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas from the Design Team!
