We are delighted to add the following three designers to the Design Team!
My name is Amarilys but my friends call me Amy. I've been scrapbooking since 2003 and I started making cards from my layouts' scraps for my friends about 6 years ago and now I'm hooked. I'm married to my best friend and last April we welcomed our first baby boy. I'm a stay at home mommy and I wouldn't change it for the world!
I've served on many Design Teams although I took a year off to be with my newborn son. I love to try new techniques and make my own embellies for my cards and layouts. I feel so blessed to be in the ODBD Design Team and I'm looking forward to inspiring and getting to know you all. Click here to visit Amy's Blog.
Loretta is from Calgary, Alberta Canada. She’s been crafting “forever.” She knits, sews (had her own tailoring business until recently), paper crafts and does needlework. Everything Loretta sees is game for inspiration! She loves paper crafting because she finds it to be a very forgiving medium to work with and it allows her to continue using various techniques from water coloring to alcohol marker coloring to cutting and sewing and so much more.
Loretta and her husband of 24 years have four kids: Morgan (20), Hannah (18), Marcus (16) and Rachel (14). She was a stay at home homeschool mom until a few years ago when she returned to work full time. Currently Loretta is a high school teacher, teaching foods and fashion. She has fostered rescue dogs for the more than 6 years and finds this activity a very fulfilling ministry in partnership with her family. Click here to visit Loretta's Blog.
My favorite part of paper-crafting is definitely card-making. I use various products and brands for my card style that can be categorized as 'busy'. I like to keep my designs symmetrical and keep the eyes interested with loads of intricate cuts and balanced embellishing. I still have a tough time doing CAS (Clean and Simple) cards because I seem to like loads of Layers on my creations. LOL! As a self taught Crafter, I proudly create for various companies and love to see what I can accomplish with trying new things. I cant wait to share my work using ODBD Products. I hope to help inspire your creativity and give back to this wonderful ODBD community! Click here to visit America's Blog.
