Introducing Our New Guest Designers
It seems like it was only yesterday when we put out our Guest Design Team call- where did time go?? Tomorrow, our new Guest Design Team will begin posting their awesome crafts.
Before we begin, here's a brief intro-
Amy Lynne Lassiter I am a mom to 3 lovely daughters, the wife to my best friend from college, a singer and librarian. I dream of living in Hawaii some day very soon, but for now, I make my home in northeast Kansas. I grab every spare second I can to create art...using as much mixed media as I can on scrapbook pages, altered items, art journal pages and more; expressing my heart, emotion, and soul on each project. As well as having the honor of being a guest designer for Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft, I also design for Gauche Alchemy, UmWowStudio, Viva Las VegaStamps, Genuinely Jane Studios, and Paper Issues.
Joy Dickson I'm a mom to three teenagers ranging from middle school to college and happily married to my BFF. When I'm not "MOMming" or hanging out with my husband, I'm crafting. I have one permanently annoyed cat and a rapidly growing English Mastiff puppy. You can find me at http://joyslife.com.
Kasia Krzymińska My name is Kasia Krzymińska, however in the scrap world I use my nickname Czekoczyna (or Czeko to make it shorter). I’m 23 years old and I live in Warsaw, Poland. I am pharmacist and I really enjoy it. But I am also a bit of an artistic soul – I’m searching for a inspiration everywhere and everyday – in music, nature, old books, bad weather, dreams… I love summer, meadows and beautiful notebooks. I started scrapbooking in 2010 and loved it from that moment on. Now I am addicted to scrapping and everything that comes with it.
Leonie Neal- Dawson My name is Leonie Neal-Dawson. Together my husband and I have four children and we live in Geelong, Australia. I enjoy playing and experimenting with lots of different mediums to create colourful, eye-catching backgrounds on my scrapbook layouts. When I'm not mothering or creating, I work as a Registered Nurse and if there is any time left after that it's usually reserved for either exercise or sleeping!
Linda Trace I live in Melbourne, Australia. I've been crafting for a about four years but Ive always even interested in different kinds of craft!
I recently discovered mixed media crafts and I gotta say, I'm totally in love.
I am so very honoured and excited to be a part of the Design Memory Craft Guest Design team!!
Lisa Adametz I'm a veteran of the United States Air Force and a stay-at-home "mom" to two beautiful Ragdoll kitties.Creativity is in my blood and I've always been making something. Cross-stitch, silk ribbon embroidery...I love the creative process! I first looked into making cards as a way to keep in touch with family and friends after moving to CA in 2008 and wanting more than store-bought cards could offer. In my eyes cards are personal mini-pieces of art and a part of your soul that you are sending through the mail. I love dimension and color. LOTS of color.
Margie Higuchi Residing in the northwestern suburbs of Chicago with my husband and our two teenage boys, I enjoys different types and styles of paper crafting from creating scrapbook pages to making cards to dabbling in mix media! I have been fortunate to have been a product designer, a design team member on several craft manufacturer and scrapbook retailer teams, published artwork and articles in several online and print magazines in the U.S. and overseas. I am thrilled to be a part of the Design Memory Crafts Guest Design Team! Their products and colors are amazing – it is SO EASY to showcase them!
Mieko Sejima I live in Japan. I am a wife and mother of 4 children. I have been scrapbooking since 2003. I love all crafts...cardmaking, scrapbooking, paper crafts, stamping, sewing and knitting. I'm on the design team of Love my memories(Japanese magazine) and teaching at the local scrapbooking stores.
Windy Robinson Hello friends! My name is Windy Robinson. I have been scrapbooking since college, but ever since I started making cards several years ago, I’ve become obsessed with paper crafting. Since my daily duties are as a stay-at-home mom for my two daughters, my creative escapes usually happen late into the night. In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with my family and volunteering in my community. If I can do something helpful and crafty everyday, I’m a happy girl!
Sharm Nidyanandan Hi! I’m Sharm from the very sunny Malaysia. I started papercrafting end 2009, after I had my first lil princess. It started off as a means to keep myself occupied while being a SAHM and what started then, is still going very strong! I love all things handmade & indulge in a variety of handmade hobbies that include card making, scrapping and jewelry making, but paper crafting is my first love! I'm very thrilled to be part of the amazing Faber Castell Guest Design Team this round and I look forward to sharing with you lovely folks some of my works! :)
Stephanie Klauck Hi my name is Stephanie and I am a working mom of two and wife of one from Ontario, Canada. I have been a paper crafter for over ten years and love the creative outlet that this hobby provides. I have made so many amazing friendships and met some wonderful people in the craft industry. When I'm not crafting, I can usually be found reading, watching my favourite TV shows and spending time with my family being crazy and silly. Laughter is a must in my home and I am a from believer that life is too short to be too serious.
Tatiana Yemelyanenko I live in Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine with my dear husband. I fell in love with scrapbooking in the end of 2011 when I decided to make first card for my dear mother. Now I am totally addicted from scrapbooking and cardmaking. I love that scrapbooking helps me to capture the moments of my life. I like to experiment with different styles and techniques and use different mediums, stamps, mists and paints in my projects.
