Meet The Krafty Girls Design Team!

Hello everyone!

Thank you so much to everyone who applied for the design team call. Narrowing down who would be on the DT was way more difficult than we every expected.  Everyone who applied was SO talented!

Without further ado, meet the Krafty Girls Design Team:
Amy 
Redheaded Crafter

Hello everyone, I am so excited to be part of the Krafty Girls DT!  I am Amy, a.k.a. the redheaded crafter!  :)  What can I say about myself?   Hmmm.....  I am a daughter, sister, aunt, friend, "mom" to my two little pups, etc....  I have one sister (no brothers), and I am the oldest by 2 whole years!  :)  I have been crafting for quite some time now...  My mom is very "crafty" and she would do crafts with me and my sister when were kids.  We would paint Christmas ornaments, draw, and all kinds of other fun stuff!

I bought my Cricut Expression in 2009, and I have been so impressed with how this machine has helped me in so many ways!!!!  It has been able to breathe new life into this hobby, and I am pretty much addicted to it (I use it on almost every project)!  I also enjoy using my Gypsy and Cuttlebug.  My favorite thing to make is cards, but I try to make something different every now and then.  :)  Other than crafting, I enjoy baking, reading, gardening, traveling, etc...  I've been known to sing karaoke, and I love music!  My favorite kind of music right now is "pop", but I have always loved country.  I like being silly, and I enjoy making other people laugh!  :)  I also really enjoy watching comedy movies (it's my favorite genre).
I am also proud to be a first grade teacher!!!  Teachng is a passion of mine, and I really love my job!  I have noticed that being "crafty" comes in very handy in the teaching profession, and my students do benefit from my hobby!  :)  I'm excited to get to know everyone and meet more new crafters!

Candy
  Hi my name is Candy. I am a mother to 3 beautiful children and a wife to a wonderful man. I work part time as a receptionist at the hospital in town.  I found the cricut in Dec 2010 on The Shopping Channel and had to have one. I made my first card in Feb 2011 and have been hooked ever since. I started my blog in June 2011 and it has been a fabulous experience. I have met some fantastic people and look forward to meeting more.  I would say my style is cutsie and girly! I love to craft in bright colors.  You will almost always see ribbons and buttons on my cards. "I'm addicted". I have recently found copic markers and I am having a blast playing with them.  I just made my first youtube videos and will be making many more! I also enjoy playing billiards and have been a league player for many years.  I would like to thank Maribel and Jennifer for choosing me to be a part of their team! I can't wait to get started!! Go Krafty Girls!!

Chris


Hello everyone!  I am so excited and honored to be a part of Krafty Girls design team! 
My name is Chris and I have been paper crafting for about 3 years now.  I started off scrapbooking and then got my first cricut and found a love for card making too. I love most crafty things. And love to try new things.  I love to share what I create on my blog http://chatterscene-mom.blogspot.com/ 
I am a Stay At Home Mom to 3 handsome boys. Ages 16, 10, and 4. I have a wonderful husband who is very supportive of my hobby (addiction).  We live in Central NY. Thank you again Jenn and Maribel for allowing me to be a part of Krafty Girls.

Cyndy
Arcy Scraps


Hi, my name is Cyndy Garcia and I'm Cricut addict! I love all types of paper crafting from cards and scrapbooking to making word books and many more things! I'm thrilled to be in the Krafty Girls design team along with these wonderful, talented ladies and hope we all inspire you ♥ 

Jennifer

Hello everyone!  My name is Jennifer.  I've been married to my husband for 3 years and I have a Dachshund named Pippin and if you've ever seen my YouTube videos you've most likely seen him a dozen times.  I'm a 2nd grade teacher and I love teaching.  I also LOVE being creative and crafting.  I have been crafty all my life.  I used to craft so much as a child that I had to be rushed to Urget Care because I had dropped a sequin in my eye and it stuck to it like a contact lens.  Ever since then I was hooked!!  My main focus is creating cards with my Cricut.  My goal this year is to start scrapbooking so maybe you'll see a couple scrapbooking layouts from me on this new challenge blog!

Jessica
Craftin' and Stampin'

My name is Jessica Wilson and I am a 32 year old wife to Brandon Sr and mommy to Brandon Jr. I am a Assistant Bank Manager by day, and a partner of an Event Planning/Personalized Merchandise Business by night! We are quickly growing each and every day!!!  I am always trying to spend as much time as possible with my little family! I enjoy going to the movies, playing tennis, going on vacation, and most of all, PAPER CRAFTING OF ALL TYPES!!  I initially got into crafting years ago, but only 2 years ago started paper crafting. I started with Scrapbooking and my love quickly grew to anything with paper!
I am so excited to be part of the Krafty Girls team and can't wait to work with some really talented women!

Karen
Hi everyone!  My name is Karen.  I am very excited to be on the Krafty Girls Design Team!  I have been happily married to my husband for 20 years.  Our oldest daughter is 19.  She is in her first year at college majoring in Dance.  My second daughter is 14.  We love crafting together!  She is the one in the picture with me!  My youngest child is a boy who is 8.  He enjoys playing on his flag football team. I started making scrapbook pages about 7 years ago.  I still enjoy making them but when I received my first Cricut I really got into making cards.  I use my Cricut and Gypsy for just about everything I make.  I started my blog in June 2011 and have loved every minute of it!

Maribel
Hello Krafters! I'm Maribel.  I am 28 years old and have been married for almost four years.  My passion is teaching, but a very close second is card making.  I love art and design, which I think is why I fell in love with crafting.  When I saw the Cricut I knew it was something I had to have.  About one year ago I got my Cricut and bought my Gypsy shortly after.  I haven't stopped creating since!  



Stephanie
Scrappyrae10


My name is Stephanie and I am a single mom of a 5 year old son, Azland.(my half children are cricut, bigshot, & cuttlebug)  My son is autistic so some days can be stressful.  I lose myself in my crafts so the stress does not take over me. (if that is really possible LOL) My son is my world so being stress free is the way to be. I love to create new things and have fun. Basicly I love paper crafting of ALL kinds, journaling, revamping, and sharing with Yall! 

Tracey

Hi everyone! My name is Tracey, and I'm super delighted to be working with these two Krafty Girls! I reside in Vancouver BC, Canada, and I'm currently a University Business student, studying Human Resources. My crafting began with scrapbook pages and only paper and stickers, but quickly evolved to much more when my boyfriend got me the Cricut Expression for my 19th birthday. Now, my crafting supplies take up at least half of my bedroom! Since then, my love for paper crafting has grown with the discovery of crafty YouTube videos, and blogs! I look forward to meeting you all, and seeing your beautiful creations! Come on over to http://www.trailoftreasures.com/ and say hi! :)


We will be having a blog hop on February 14th, to celebrate our launch!  Please grab a button from the sidebar and celebrate with us! 

We will be back soon with our very first challenge.
