First of all, please help me welcome Lisa Vaughan to our team. Here is a darling card and the bio Lisa shared with us:
Hi I'm Lisa and I am from Ontario, Canada and I am a mother of 2. I started scrapbooking when my first was born 9 years ago and then it evolved to card making 2 years ago and I started my blog to show case them. I find I love making kids cards for Birthday parties and special occasions, the brighter the better and the kids just LOVE them!!! It is so nice to see their little smiles when receiving a special handmade card. I have even got my kids making special cards too!!
Please visit Lisa at her blog: http://lisaspaperfun.blogspot.com/ and leave some love and congrats on this new dt position and check out her great cards.
We are also welcoming Aly Sheridan to our design team. Here is a super cute card and the bio Aly shared with us:
My name is Aly, I am 38 years old and live in the UK. I have 3 children, Louise 17, Hayley 16 and my baby Charlotte (Charlie) who is 11 and is starting secondary school in September arghhh I can’t believe it!! Lol! I am a volunteer for our local constabulary and also our local Hospice Charity shop but I mainly look after my hubby, who is disabled. I love crafting I will have a go at almost anything, I love shiny things I am like a magpie! I can’t say I have a favourite crafting genre at the moment as I swap and change on a weekly basis! Recently I have been playing a lot with distressing techniques, making paper flowers, different colouring techniques, watercolours, using wax and ageing pictures. I adore stamping and love stamps of all kinds, and I like making ATC's and swapping them.
Please visit Aly at her blog: http://simply-angelic-crafts.blogspot.com/ and wish her well on her new DT position and check out her great card ideas.
