01-Glenda : Challenge #16 Winner

Hi, my name is Glenda Atkins and I  have been making cards  for some years and recently got into journalling and scrap booking, both  of which seem to be as addictive as I found card making.  I am retired  from a career in telecommunications and live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada with my husband and a black lab called  Rocky. I am the proud mother of one son and the step mother to four fabulous step children  who are grown and  with families of their own.I have  always liked to work with my hands to create something and card making is just the latest in a long list of various adventures into crafting. Through the years I have sewed,  paper tolled, made jewellery, created dried flower arrangements and anything else that caught my fancy. Thanks to Scrapping4Fun for the opportunity to participate in the May- Aug Winner challenge.

02-Erin : Challenge #18 Winner

I am a veterinary technician living in NY who loves to pen pal and make cards in my spare time. I have never been good at crafts since I can barely draw a straight line with a ruler but I was determined to give it a go.  I love learning all the different techniques and ways to craft. 

03-Vicki : Challenge #19 Winner

Hi. My name is Vicki and I live in northern Michigan, USA. I'm a 62 year old grandmother, but a kid at heart (I worked at a toy store). I started scrapbooking in 2009 as a way to add visual life to my family history research. I was soon hooked and now scrap far more current pictures (mostly of my six grandsons). I started Project Life this year and love that as well. I'm a traditional scrapper, mainly 12x12 one page layouts. 

04-Pauline : Challenge #21 Winner

My name is Pauline and I live in Hampshire, England with my husband Paul and two teenage sons. I started making cards about four years ago when my husband gave me a card making book for Christmas - I was soon addicted.  I love to try lots of different techniques and styles, my favourite has to be decoupage and I love CD crafting but I also like to try my hand at Clean and Simple.
I started my blog to share my love of crafting and to enter challenges - I have been amazed by the many wonderful friendships I have made all over the world.
It is an honour to be taking part in this challenge along with many talented crafters.

05-Nicola : Challenge #22 Winner

Hi my name is Nicola and I love to craft! I have tried many forms over the years, but have stuck with paper crafting for over 10 years now.  I have a growing stash and love to learn new techniques and use different brands to get the most diverse look for my cards. When I'm not crafting, which is most of the time these days, I am a full-time mum to a wonderful 3 year old boy and my new baby who is only 2 months old. 

06-Rupa : Challenge #24 Winner

I am Rupa from Bangalore (India). I have a son and daughter and a very supportive family who appreciate my passion and my expensive hobby!
I have been painting on all types of mediums and also taking hobby classes for the last 10 years.
Crafting is a new passion for the last 2 years and you can mostly see me doing altered art which is my all time favourite. I also recycle a lot of household items and scraps and give them an "over the top make over"!"
Hope you all enjoy my style of work. 
Happy Crafting and recycling!
Warm regards,

Please, visit the blogs of the ladies for more detail on their lovely creations.
Have fun Ladies!
Happy Crafting!

Hanny GD

Hello Everybody,

My name is Hanny, I live in the Netherlands with my husband and together we have 3 mature daughters, already living on their own with a partner. I always loved to be creative, when I was little I made furniture of match boxes for my Barbie dolls, clothes and other things.
Later, when our girls were born I made their clothes en enjoyed doing this, my favorite color is pink so I was lucky with 3 girls. Later on I was creative with knitting, chrochet, to batik, lace making making cards. Since a few years I like to scrap, for me it is relaxing whenever I have time, I just enjoy doing this and it makes me happy to use pink, lace and much details on my card as you can see on this Tag I’ve made.
When Rachelle asked me to be a gastdesigner I said “yes” and since the challenge is Bows and Buttons I made this Tag to show you. Hope you enjoy it and would love to here your comment. You can also find more of my creations on:

Lisa GD

Hi Everyone!
My name is Lisa.  I have been happily married for 7 years and have 3 young Children, 2 Sons age 6 years and 2 years and a Daughter age 4 years.  I have been crafting for over 20 years and am addicted to Card Making although I have been recently having a go at making Silver Wine Charms!  My roots are 3d Decoupage.  I started making 3d Decoupage Pictures then I changed into 3d Decoupage Cards. I then changed again and made Card Toppers using Die Cuts. I even designed a few of my own!  I did try Rubber Stamping “back then” but I didn’t find I could colour very well as the products were limited, and swiftly gave up.  I have only been back into stamping (both Rubber and Digi’s) for about 2 years after meeting a fellow crafter online who introduced me to the world of Digi’s and Promarkers!  I am hooked now and can think of no better way to unwind than colouring and card making.
I am so thrilled to be here as a GD. Thank you so much to Rachelle and Scrapping4fun for having me for this fabulous Challenge.

A warm welcome to the New Design Team Ladies 

Hi, I'm Tina DeMarche, the Domestic Engineer of my home of four boys ages 20, 18, 9, and 3. I homeschool my two youngest boys and enjoy learning with them. I was born and raised in Illinois, but have been living in the south for almost 14 years. I started cross-stitching at age 6 and have loved keeping my hands busy ever since with crafts. Cooking is another one of my favourite thing I like to do to keep my hands busy. I started stamping almost 9 years ago and in 2012 I decided to cheek out what all the buzz was about on "blog land". I started my own blog, started entering challenges and made new friends....I was hooked. Being on DTs have made it even more challenging. I am so thrilled to be on Scrapping4funChallenges Blog with some amazingly talented ladies. I know this team will challenge and broaden my creative mind. Thank you for the opportunity.

Rupa DT

Hi! My name is Julene Matthews and I live in Sydney. My family and travels are my constant source of scrapping inspiration.

I went along to a beginners scrapbook class back in 2001 and loved it.
My style is constantly changing as I love to try new techniques, but I try to keep my photo’s as the main focus and always use them as the starting point for creating my layouts.  I have been fortunate to be published in Scrapbook Creations & Scrapbooking Memories magazines.

I am currently on the Design Team for Counterfeit Kit Challenge, Sketches with a twist,1 2 3 Challenges and Unstampabelles. I am thrilled to be a part of the Scrapping 4fun challenges team.
Angie DT

I am a teacher, newlywed, and crafter who prefers to be behind the camera lens. :)  I began scrapbooking in the mid 90's in order to preserve all my memories.  I completely fell in love with this craft that I even convinced 2 of my college professors to establish "Historian" positions in the clubs I was involved in, so I could scrapbook and preserve our club events.  Now I enjoy various paper crafting projects- layouts, cards, & home d├ęcor.  Some of my other interests are crocheting, knitting, sewing, reading, traveling, and being in nature.

Thank you,

Sandra DT
