Here is our WONDERFUL Design Team for January 2017 - June 2017!
"I am Anushree Vaish from Bangalore,India.
Although i was crafting since i was small girl, till
date have tried my hands on almost all crafts,have trained numerous
craft lovers in varied crafts under the name of my hobby studio
"WORKSHOPEASE" in Bangalore for last 8 years. But
Papercrafting,Cardmaking and mixed media works started with making
some birthday cards for my daughter in 2014, to Pinterest, to teaching
this beautiful art form and finally to the wonderful world of
blogging... I have been hooked ever since and to be precise I have
been making cards and mixed media projects for 16 months now. All the
rest of my hobbies have taken a back seat! My crafting style is CAL
and what makes my cards and mixed media projects unique is that I
always try to make my designs meaningful.I also love to explore
different products and techniques to make cards, boxes, mini books and
projects for home décor. Besides card-making, I often try my hands on
canvas paintings,fabric flowers and decoupage . I am married for 8 years now and have
two beautiful daughters aged 6 and 2.My favorite way to create cards is by layering and
incorporating mixed media. No matter what aesthetic I feel like
working in, almost all of my designs will be saturated in color or
filled with texture. I love being able to help and encourage people,
both through my work and creative life.Have always played as a part of
the team. I look forward to meeting new bloggy friends and joining the
"My name is Erika. I am from Slovakia and live in 2nd biggest town in our country - Kosice for few months as I moved here with love of my life :D. I am a mom of 3 furbabies - dogs: one girl (Linda 8) and two boys (Edy 5 and Rexi 3 years old). They are absolutely adorable and most beautiful on the world :D. I really like to make handmade gifts and cards because it makes me happy when I give them to my family or friends. From papercrafting is cardmaking my favourite one, I like cards that are between CAS and Fancy and Fussy :D. And I am sooo happy to be a part of DT at Crafty Gals Corner."
My adventure with paper crafting was literally dumped on my living room floor. My daughter and daughter-in-law brought to mom 4 big totes filled with stamping up and close to my heart items. This started my paper crafting addiction. Hello, i'm Jana Forrest. I live in a little town in the Willamette Valley in Oregon. I'm married to 'The Bob' and have one grown daughter + daughter-in-law. Retired from the IT business. I love just about any sort of crafting, gardening, cooking and I really love to wash windows. Nice to meet you!
"I am the wife of a wonderful man, Charles, of going on 44 years. I am also a mother of 2 (Amy and Keith) and a grandmother of 3 (Caleb, Isaac, and Moriah), one of which just graduated High School last night. I’m very proud of him! My husband is retired Army and recently from American Railcar Industries. I am currently serving as treasurer for our church.
I have always loved to craft in some way, mostly with colored pencils and sewing, but with the busyness of life, I got away from that. That is, until 1997, when I got into scrapbooking and found a new form of art and memories. I was a consultant with a scrapbooking company, but about 2 years ago, I saw another form of paper skills from YouTubers….mini albums! I decided to try my hand at that, and I was hooked! Papercrafting became my new passion."
Hi Ya'll! My name is Jennifer Paci, and I'm from sunny South Carolina! I'm a navy wife and a stay at home mom to a silly, rambunctious little two year old boy named Caeleb. I have been crafting and creating things by hand for most of my life, but papercrafting/cardmaking stole my heart from the second I started 3 years ago! I decided to finally take the plunge this year and start a blog to share some of my creations and hopefully provide some inspiration to others. The online papercrafting community is huge, and I have met some amazing women through social media. They have all been so encouraging and kind, and have inspired me in so many different ways!
I don't prefer any particular style of papercrafting over another, and I love exploring new and different types of media. I do however, try to push my creativity by coming up with new ways to use what I already have in my stash so I'm not buying new products every other week to keep up with the latest trends. I also love joining in challenges that push me out of my creative comfort zone, which I think is so important to do so I can continue to grow and learn as a papercrafter. This is why I was so excited to get the news that I had been chosen to be a DT member for the Crafty Gals Corner! I can't wait to push my creativity and learn new techniques from all the talented ladies on the team, and hopefully I will inspire others to do so as well!
"Hi my name is Judy! I am a Louisiana native living in Colorado, where my husband of 30 years and I have raised our son and daughter. Monday through Friday you'll find me working full time as Director of Finance for a large Optometry practice but on the weekend you'll find me in my craft room where I do a little bit of scrapbooking, a little bit of jewelry making and a whole lot of card making!

"I was born in Lisbon, Portugal but raised in Durban, South Africa. We have now called Pearland, Texas, home for the last 17 years. I'm a stay at home mom who has been married to a wonderful man for 29 years, and I have two great children, a daughter who is 24 and a son who is 19. Although I have always enjoyed scrapbooking, it wasn't until a few of years ago that my affair with paper crafting began. Now I love all aspects of this wonderful and very fulfilling hobby. My other hobbies are reading and baking and spending time with the family. We all enjoy travelling and visiting new places."
"I am an army wife, mom of four (mostly) grown kids, and currently living in Pensacola, FL in the US. I have been stamping for almost 15 years now, but I have been a crafter forever! I remember making Christmas gifts for my family at a young age and being so excited about doing it all by myself. Discovering digital stamps and the online crafting world has been an amazing journey! I am so excited to be joining this team and creating project to inspire you!"
"Hi There! My name is Tracy and I live in Victoria, Australia. Yes, I live Down Under in The Lucky Country and I am so lucky to be married to the most wonderful man in the world, who also happens to be a pretty awesome crafting enabler too. I have been creative for as long as I can remember and have tried many different crafts, from the traditional cooking & dressmaking while growing up to pottery, macramé and much, much more over the years. My current addiction is cardmaking, with a little scrapbooking and some off-the-page projects on the side. I started cardmaking a few years ago. What started as a distraction from the aches and pains associated with being struck down suddenly with chronic Rheumatoid Arthritis has become an essential part of my life. I love to create and learning new techniques and I look forward to sharing my creative adventures with you."
