Design Team Inspiration!

I'd like to start by welcoming Julie and Tracey to our team!

Hi, I'm Julie and as the title of my blog suggests, I have a passion for, an addiction almost, to all things paper!! I've been married for 24 years to a very patient and understanding man (God knows he has to be) and we have three very grown up daughters. . . for me, paper fills a void! I have a very small dog who has a very big personality and also look after a guinea pig that one of my daughter's "forgot" to take with her when she moved out. I don't have as much time to craft as I would like . . . (well does anyone?) but I thoroughly enjoy the time that I do have!

I was born in Kingston, Ontario Canada. I emigrated to Australia in 1990 when I married my Aussie husband. I'm a keen crafter, and dabble in many different things, but especially enjoy papercrafting. I've been stamping for over 12 years and scrapbooking for about 6. My favourite aspect of papercraft would have to be cardmaking.

Our January Guest Designers

Nina Fl√łtterud is my name and I`m 33 years old. Live in a small place in Norway with my boyfriend, a little baby daugther and a dog.
Started to make cards in 2007, and that have been my passion ever since.
Here you can see my cards


Hi, my name is Tine E. S. Kristiansen and is 34 years old. I live in a nice village on the west coast of Norway. Here I live with my fiance. Together we have a daughter who is almost 3 years old, and he has a boy from before who is now 13 years old.

I have "always" been doing some hobby stuff. I 've even had a hobby shop that I took after my mother. But I did not begin with Scrappbooking and card making before a little after our daughter was born. I wanted to make her an album and "stumbled" over scrapping web shops.
Then I went on my first scrap shop. And I was shocked.

I began in a small way on the kitchen table and I had my few things in a cardboard box. But then we made a hobby room, and things became much easier.
Now I sit almost every day and enjoy making cards and other stuff in there.

I do not work currently because of back and pelvic problems. So then I have all day to enjoy myself making cards (at least some of the day).  I create lots of cards that people order. I also have some stores that sell the cards for me.
Christmas is very special for me. I love making things for Christmas. So this challenge blog is totally great for me.

Thanks for that I was allowed to be a GTD!

A HUGE thanks to all these ladies for their amazing work this month and I'm so happy to see all of the entries already for this month!  Keep it up!
