I’m a craft girl and a gamer.
I like to experiment and try new crafts. I had been to cross stitching,
paper tole, latch hook and now addicted to scrapbooking.
I started as a tradional scrapbooker then eventually tried digital scrapbooking
and got hooked with it. Recently my friend introduced digital stamping & card making
and got more addictive with them.
I love this new hobby and will forever be a scrapper/stamper.
I love to shop more than to scrap more. Quite a hoarder by nature.
Wishing and hoping to have a craft room for all of my toys .
When my friend told me about the CALL of being a Design Team,
I immediately apply for a position. Thank you for accepting me in your palace.

Shell Swinscoe    
I am a 37yr old SAHM to two beautiful girlies Didge who is 13 & Katie who is 12. I have been married to my gorgeous hubby for 12 years, we also have one crazy greyhound Charlie who is 5!!
I have been crafting one way or another for as long as I can remember, then one Christmas about 5 years ago the girlies decided they wanted to make their own Christmas cards...& as they say the rest is history!!
My favourite form of papercraft is stamps be it rubber or digi, but I think digi are way more versitile & take up less space lol....I used to watercolour my images...but then I found out about Promarkers & needless to say I managed to collect them all!!
Huge hugs Shell
    Lisa Smith  ( GDT coordinator )
My name is Lisa Smith.I live in a small village in Northants in the U.K. with my Husband and four children.We share our home with Max,our blue bunny,and Fudge,the 'blonde' gerbil. 
I've had an interest in art,design and crafting from a young age.I discovered card making in 2006 and what started as a hobby grew into a passion - although my family would say it's an obsession! I became addicted to rubber stamping but now equally love the versatility digi images.I also adore Promarkers as they really suit my 'scribbly' style of shading but I enjoy coloring mediums of any kind.I also love to create dimension and texture to give interest to my work.
I'm a great hoarder.Not only of craft goodies but junk I plan to recycle.Occasionally I might dip in to the ever growing pile to make an embellishment for one of my cards or even create an altered item.
I'm also a bit nosey and like looking at other people's crafty work!
I was delighted to be asked to be a guest designer and so you can imagine how thrilled I was when asked to be a permanent part of the DT!

Hello everyone, I am Chantal aka Shatam. I live in the beautiful city of St-Eustache in the province of Quebec. I have two gorgeous daughters (Shana & Tamara) and i am with the man of my life since almost 12 years. I started scrapbooking at the end of October 2007. Little by little, this has become a passion.  Around a year ago, i have started to create cards, and since then, I am doing just that.  I have put aside creating pages, probably because making cards is so much faster to create J.  I know I will create pages again, because I have so many beautiful pictures to embellish.
My favorite tools to work with are, Stamps of course (Digital, rubber etc), copics, flowers etc.
I need to let you in on something….  I am a compulsive buyer but I think I am not alone.  Right!? J
I am happy to be part of this Design Team and hope you will enjoy my creations.
I invite you to visit me on my blog  HERE  Tamara Morton
Hi I'm Tamara, married to a fabulous hubby that is very understanding and supports me through my crafting addiction. We have a beautiful daughter, Savannah who brings us joy and happiness each and everyday. I started paper crafting in 2005 after receiving a handmade card from my cousin it inspired me so much I thought I would give it a go, since then I've been hooked.
The first major craft item I purchased was the Sizzix Big Shot which is still going strong today with my crafting space going from the dinning table to a purpose build cabin at the bottom of the garden and I have to say I think I might need a bit more space. I can be found there most days with glitter, glue, sticky pads and copic's all around (a girl in heaven). 
I am proud to be part of the Craft your Passion design team..
