A Little About Me: I'm an energetic SAHM of two active Kiddos. My daughter Lizzy is five and Just started Kindergarten and my son, Jimmy is four. I've been married to my Disabled Veteran Hubby, Eric, for six and a half years and we live in Marlboro Township, Ohio. I originally started scrapbooking 9 years ago when my hubby and I were just engaged and he was deployed in Iraq. It's something I did with the other moms, wives & girlfriends to pass the time while the guys were deployed.  Once I was working a full time job,  got married & Pregnant, I stopped crafting since I was so busy. I  started crafting again about a year and a half ago and started my blog. I have now fallen in love with Digi Stamps, Rubber Stamping, card making and of course my new found obsession with Copic Markers! My main theme to crafting, is Crafty and Green. I always Craft with what I have on hand. I rarely go buy new things. Most of what I use is what I find around my house, at thrift stores, garage sales, or acquire from crafty swaps. It's a challenge in itself to use what I already have. It's also my way to keep my hubby happy! (If I could find a way to acquire free copic markers, I would, hehe!!) Other Then Crafting, I enjoy being a stay at home mommy and wife! My other passion in life is singing, I make everything I do in life a song!

Hi, I am Joann aka Sassy Raggedy.  I have been crafting all my life in one form or another.  I was the owner of my own boutique in Denver, Co. for 13 years called "Ragg-A-Muffins".  I specialized in decorative painting, but made various items and sold in my boutique; From sewing to candle making to soaps, you name it, we made it.  In addition,
 I also taught decorative painting in the Denver Area at Hobby Lobby, Michael's and Lee Wards. I still teach a class on decorative painting here in the small town where I now live in Alabama.
I have been married for 33 years, have 2 grown sons who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Card Making has become my new love with crafting at this moment as well as blogland. I love surfing around to see what everyone is making.  

I am a Christian, Daughter, Sister, Wife and Mother. A bit Sassy and free spirited. Unabashedly open about my love for Jesus. I am very happily married for 18 years and blessed with three beautiful girls and three fur babies. I am also blessed with abundant Creativity and in my spare time, if 
 I'm not making cards or scrabook pages, I'm surfing the net for design ideas!

 I'm Cheryl Caldwell-Nyboer and I fell in love with scrapbooking and paper crafting sixteen years ago and have only grown more passionate about it over the years.  I also love making cards, ATCs, tags and all kinds of mixed media projects.  In the past two years, I've found a new love - digital stamps.  They have opened up a whole new and creative arena for my projects.  Digital stamps are very user-friendly and extremely inspiring to use.  I'm constantly trying new techniques which involve their use and am convinced that there's no limit to what you can do with them, creatively.

In addition to being on several online design teams, I was on the design team for a local scrapbook store for two years.  I've also taught scrapbooking classes at Joan, ETC. (in Ft. Myers, Florida).  Through Joan's I was very fortunate to have had the opportunity to teach scrapbooking classes at a local high school (in Ft. Myers, Florida).  It was an elective for honors students and was very well-attended.  It was wonderful and very rewarding to see these students capturing their memories and getting excited about scrapbooking!  

Hi! I'm Kristie Maynard and I live in Tonawanda, New York which is outside of Buffalo and about 15 minutes from Niagara Falls. I'm the Mom of 2 fabulous adult children and wife of 1 wonderful husband since 1988. I have been a crafter all my life, but found scrapbooking about 7 years ago and fell in love. I swore I'd never be a stamper or card maker, but I tried it and fell in love with that too. Never say never! I couldn't even tell you all the crafts I have done over the years, but I must say that all types of paper crafts are my favorite! My husband, Dave, and I have our own business. Dave is a photographer and sells his work mostly at art festival. I keep busy with making mouse pads, coasters and note cards with his images on them to sell along with his photographs, but I make time to scrapbook and stamp as much as possible. I love to share my hobbies with other and would love for you to stop by my blog at and see some of my creations.
I also love photography, spending time with friends, traveling and relaxing with a good book.
I'm thrilled to be continuing on the Eureka Stamps design team



I've been crafting for about as long as I can remember. When I was
about 10 years old, I had to hand-make a name tag for an etiquette
class I was taking. Most of the girls drew something with crayons,
but I took a piece of burlap, some embroidery thread, and
hand-stitched my name in bright colors. That was the first prize I
ever won with my crafting. I think that started me on the path of
creativity, and realizing that I wanted to express myself through art.
 This January will mark two years that I've been blogging, and I've
enjoyed every minute of it. I've met some of the nicest people, and
won some amazing prizes. I'm really looking forward to working with
the other Design Team Members at Eureka Stamps, and I invite you to
visit my blog to see my work,
and hopefully become a new follower. I look forward to visiting all
of your blogs, and hope you will enter our fun challenges. Thanks for
having me!

I have been crafting now for nearly 2 years. It all started when in disgust at the lack of suitable birthday cards for a friend, I decided I could do better myself and I haven’t looked back since!I love stamps, digital images, Promarkers, pretty papers, ribbons and anything shiny but my big thing is buttons – I LOVE buttons!! Ever want to bribe me? Well a good start would be buttons...

I've been stamping for almost 20 years and have found digital stamps with in the last year and fell in love.  At one point I had over 4000 wood mounted rubber stamps and have slowly thinned them out over the years and love the storage option of digital so I've begun to acquire more of them over physical images.  I have been married for 13 years, have 2 grown step kids with 3 grandchildren and we have a 3 year old little Angel face who is the center of our world now.  She brings me many smiles and more love than I could ever imagine. I look forward to sharing my passion with you and can't wait to see what this opportunity brings.

My name is Paula Learmouth,  I am a married 47 year old mum to 9 wonderful children, 5 grandchildren, and a husband who has the patience of a saint.
I am a former special needs teacher and have been crafting for 10 years, even though I am now wheelchair bound crafting has given me the confidence to express my creative talents.
I currently teach the staff at a local doctors surgery, supply handmade cards for my local St Oswalds Hospice and also teach for age Uk on a weekly basis.

Hi my name is Sandra and i am married to a very supportive husband with 2 gorgeous sons. I love to create cards and 3d projects and share ideas with people. I am also on the design team for digis by Jems Designs as well as the design team for Love to Create Challenge. I have great pleasure working with such amazing and talented artists hugs xx

 I am Soma.... Life begins with a sense of creativity.... My journey in the world of Art & Craft too started at a tender age. But perseverance and openness has brought me close to the people of similar genre...
Sometimes, I realize that the ASL of crafter does not matter any more,, and we have now started sharing our lives beyond the boundary of Art & Craft.
I live in New Delhi, India with my hubby and two blooming flowers named Adideb(Son) and Sonakshi (Daughter). I believe, some of my creation displays the mood we enjoy at different points of time...
I am really enjoying this new face of life, where we truly express ourselves in the rolling creations and manage to share the same in different forums, often you get laurels too.....
I am proud to be a part of the Eureka stamps Design Team and you are also welcome to visit me anytime at my blog Bubleeing Colors 
Love to all !!!!

I'm Suzi McKenzie, I'm 30 something and live in Aberdeen, Scotland with my adorable hubby Stewart and our 3 cats.  I've been colouring images since i could hold a crayon, and it's one of my favourite things to do.  I love papercrafting as it gives me the opportunity to be creative, and share my interests with others.  I started card making when i was preparing for my wedding, and could not find stationary i liked.  I've been card making ever since, I discovered craft blogs and forums soon after, and have been lucky enough to make lots of crafty friends all over the world.  My style is fairly simple, a little weird and wacky, and i love to use bright vibrant colours. You can find all my weird and wacky creations at The Manic World of Mrs McKenzie


I'm an accountant working full time and a mother of 4 great kids.  I have an amazing husband who understand that in order to keep my sanity through all this I need to craft ;) I live in Quebec, Canada, so a lot of my crafting is done with French sayings.
 I have been crafting over 21 years and tried my hands at all kinds of techniques over the years.  I'm new to the blogging world. I have started blogging in March in order to join challenges.  I became totally hooked!!!!  I can't believe this world existed and I only found out about it now.  I see blogging as a wonderful opportunity to improve my card making abilities.
 I have realized that through the web I get to meet amazing people from all over the world and learn from them.  I'm in awe of all the wonderful blogs that I see and I hope that one day my blog will be up to that level.  

 Please Make Sure you Come Back to see their First DT Challenge Posts Next Monday!!
