Design Team Inspiration

Please join us in welcoming two new members to our team

Hello! I live in Manitoba, Canada with my husband and our two children ages 8 & 10. Most people would say my style is "cute" but I have a love of vintage as well! I am always looking to further my experience and learning. 
Using "F1 Escape Key" by Bugaboo Stamps
My style is primarily clean and simple when it comes to cards (I love one layer cards), but I'm a mixed media girl at heart so my cards tend to be artsy (or textured and have elements of grunge/distressing often). I love mixing different media in my projects -- watercolor, inks, Gelatos, gesso, markers, alcohol inks, paint, etc.
My crafting goals: Mostly to have fun in the process! I love trying different things and this year, I'm aiming to share more of my projects (not just cards) on my blog. (The projects I post there are
just a fraction of the things I create on a daily basis.) I also love to learn from fellow crafters and I think that's the best thing about being part of a design team and participating in challenges. There is always something new to see and try!
