Introducing the Practicing Creativity Design Team

Remember how I was really unsure about doing a design team? Remember how I was nervous about having to actually choose? Well... I was totally correct in feeling that way. It was so hard to pick, and trust me I know how it feels to not get picked. It's just not fun. I do want to encourage everyone that applied to keep trying, there was seriously not one untalented person that applied. I'm always so impressed and inspired by the community of paper crafters out there!

But without further ado,  I'd like to introduce you to three fantastic card makers. I'm seriously so excited to see what they create next!


I am a happy card maker living in Northern California with my husband and two lovely cats. I started scrapbooking about 3.5 or 4 years ago and started making cards soon after. I fell in love right away with card making and that's has taken over most of my scrapbooking time. I love and enjoy being able to make all my "thank yous" and "Happy Birthdays" tangible so that my family and friends can feel and treasure them. =) 
 
I'm a left-handed art and craft lover! I enjoy paper crafts, altered art, knitting, cooking, gardening, and music. I fell into the stamping world by accident in 2000 when I purchased my first rubber stamp at a yard sale! Cards have always been my specialty and my style is pretty eclectic because I like to dabble in just about everything from vintage/shabby to clean and simple. My husband and I are the proud parents of 2 adopted boys, 2 cats and 1 dog. We live in beautiful upstate New York. I am a PPQ Officer with the USDA and spend most of my workdays outside, but in the early morning hours you can find me in my studio covered with ink. 
I'm a girly girl who has a tendency to be a perfectionist. I started stamping when I was a little girl and my love for it has grown over the years. I love pink, scallops, polka dots, bows and anything
sparkly- elements that can be seen on almost all of my creations. During the day I'm a manager at a rubber stamp company and at night you can usually find me stamping away in my studio. Yes, I enjoy stamps so much that I spend almost all my waking hours around them! When I do step away from my stamps, I enjoy shopping, watching movies, exercising and spending time with my friends.
I am so excited to be on board with the PCD design team- I can't wait to share my love of these stamps with you!


You'll get to see these ladies fabulous work starting with this release which starts on Saturday!

By the way if you have not seen Dana's tutorial on using the You're Dandy rays you are totally missing out. It's brilliant!
