Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge #287 & Welcome to another Design Team member





 Welcome to another new Design Team Member!
Hello! I’m Diana and I’m 43 years old and I live in Northern VA, USA with my husband Chris, 13- year old son Aidan, and our little Mocha dog. I work full-time as a Contracts Manager for an Aerospace Company that works with the Government.  I was always into crafts but when my son was born I started getting into scrapbooking and then a friend introduced me to cardmaking and it was love at first sight.  I love that you can make beautiful cards in the fraction of a time of scrapbooking and impact receiving a handmade card has on the receiver (we don’t get enough “happy mail” these days!).  My style is clean and simple and since I have a house full of boys I tend to make quite a few “dude cards.”  I became a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in 2007 and love sharing the joy of card making and paper crafting.  I’ve been a member of several design teams and love the ability to inspire others.  In addition to crafting and being my son’s biggest fan or all his activities, I love running, shopping, and relaxing.  Please visit my blog, http://stampinfunwithdiana.blogspot.com/ to see what I’m currently working on.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge #286 & New Design Team members


 Welcome to our new Design Team Members!

We're so happy to add the following amazing talent to our design team.  Please join us in welcoming the newest members to the HSS Design Team.

I began paper-crafting in 1998 after I “retired” to raise my two youngest children, doing memory-keeping, and then started stamping a few years later. I am married to my husband, Aly, for 29 years and have four beautiful adult kids. I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan since 2003. My interests have varied over the years with a few crafts beyond stamping and memory keeping, with photography, reading and travel also thrown in the mix. With my youngest child now away at college, it is a great time to be creative, and do something I truly love.  My biggest interest will always be my family and will always be grateful that they are a part of my life. Please visit my blog , www.secretstamper.com, to see more of my projects.  

I love paper crafting, putting together jigsaw puzzles, playing board games with my family, lighting a scented candle on a fall evening, the smell of freshly cut grass, dinner sized breakfasts with all the makings, traveling and getting to know other cultures, and I am a self-proclaimed crazy cat lady.  Please visit my blog, www.stampitupwithjaimie.com , to see more of my projects.  

Hello! My name is ValĂ©rie, I am 37 years old and I live in Switzerland with my husband Benjamin and my three guinea pigs Jinxie, Ayla and Vaila. I work part-time at a law firm as an all-rounder but my real passion is cardmaking and scrapbooking. My style is clean and simple and I love cute stamps. I started with scrapbooking and making mini albums in 2007 and started my blog in 2010. I design for Scraphouse (a Swiss scrapbooking store) and several challenge blogs. When I don't craft I love reading, fashion and travelling.  Please visit my blog, http://lescrapdevava.blogspot.ch/
to see more of my projects.


I'm a 50 something mum to Emma and Christopher - now grown and flown the nest. I have been married to Jonathan my best friend for over 30 years. I have two dogs and two cats who sometimes feature on my blog!  I have been paper crafting for over 20 years and really became hooked when I lived in Houston, Texas for three years.  I now live back in a small village in England. I love all things inky including cards and scrapbooking. I am the owner of the popular Joy of Sets Facebook Group.  Please visit my blog, http://craftystamping.blogspot.com/  to see more of my projects.
