New Design Team Members


Good morning! 

 Today we are pleased to welcome the NEW Ladies in


The new Ladies are:
A.Rose, AndrejaM, Becca and Majda.
Let the Ladies introduce themselves:



A.Rose
From the age of two, I have always had an instrument of art in my hand. It started with crayons and never stopped. I was signed up to art school after graduation from nursing school but met my hubby and that led me down a different path. I have been rubber stamping for over 45 years. Back then I was only able to find stamps and ink pads in the local drug store. I had my youngest, born with Down’s Syndrome, and stayed home where I began teaching online. After my boys were in school I started working in craft and stamp stores, sadly all now closed. I have been teaching card crafting as well as other crafts for 12 years in the library system. I love to share my “talents” that God gave me with others.



AndrejaM
I am the perfect mix of loving creative mom and meticulous innovative dad who taught me to look at things and situations from at least two points of view. I live on the outskirts of the Barje National park in the heart of Slovenia. My days are full of such and other surprises prepared by my wonderful teenage daughter, a very unique puppy and a wonderful partner who supports my imagination and hobbies. I create always and everywhere, but I prefer to start with white paper and leave my marks on it with various techniques and colors. That's why card making is my happy place.




Becca
Hi!, I'm Becca, a teacher, crafter, and blogger living in the USA heartland. Balancing the demands can be crazy at times but I love being creative. Since age 9, I've tried many different artistic and crafting mediums through school, 4-H club, YMCA classes, and supportive parents throughout childhood and teenage years. As an adult, I've loved expanding these into interior decorating and home décor. Wallpapering was even tackled multiple times! My greatest creative achievement has been constructing and sewing my wedding dress almost 24 years ago!! For the past 10 years, card-making has been my major paper-crafting format. I dabble in the others but love making cards to send to family and friends.



Majda
Hello, I am Majda and I live in Slovenia. I have been passionate about arts and crafts my whole life. I did not discover cardmaking until late 2015 and love every moment of it. It has been an amazing journey and I’m happy to be sharing it with you. So here I am, addicted to making cards which inspired me to try new techniques and styles of cards. Welcome to my creative corner!



We are so pleased to welcome them all to the Design Team.
