Meet Some of the ODBD Design Team Members at our Card Making Retreat!

SEPTEMBER 12-14, 2014!

We are pleased to announce our “Meet*Learn*Listen*Discuss” card making time with Design Team members Dawn Lusk, Lisa Somerville and Angella Crockett. 
Along with a weekend of wonderful card making classes……….come and talk to Dawn, Lisa and Angella about new techniques, product reviews, how they are inspired, and one-on-one advice on this ever changing paper craft hobby.

Dawn has been involved in the stamping industry for 11 years, serving on numerous designs teams including the Dirty Dozen and Splitcoaststampers.  She has countless magazine publications such as Card Maker, Rubber and Stamp Madness , Crafts ‘n Things, Create and Decorate, Holiday Home, Jewelry Creations and Just Cards to name a few.

 Dawn is a prolific Stamp Designer for both Our Daily Bread Designs and North Creations.  She is also Copic Certified.  She loves using her Copic Air Brush System in combination with dies and “lots” of layers.  Dawn also designs many of the cards and samples for store displays and Our Daily Bread Designs classes.  Some of the cards you will be making at this retreat were created and designed exclusively by Dawn. 

As far as her endless creativity, she simply says, “I get it from the Wind-in-the Willows”.  So what does this actually mean?  Dawn uses nature as her inspiration and gets as close as possible to the real thing when creating.  It’s an extremely difficult concept so please ask Dawn how this works when you meet her at Salt Fork.

Dawn is also one of the original Design Team members of Our Daily Bread Designs so she has a very long history with our company!

Lisa has been a member of the paper craft industry for over 12 years having the great privilege serving on a great number of Manufacturer Design Teams in the capacity of Design Team Member, Design Team Coordinator and Social Media Coordinator.  

Lisa’s style is pretty classical with a bit of shabby chic with card making being her favorite thing to create, however, she has done Scrapbooking and also enjoys creating Mixed Media Projects.  She enjoys sharing her love of paper crafting with others through her blog and teaching at Rubber Stamp events. 

Lisa has also been widely featured  in publications such as Crafts 'n Things, Take Ten, Stampers Sampler, Stampington, Catch Up Issues, Craft Stamper, Stamps & Scrap Arts, Just Cards, Rubber Stamper, Rubber Stamp Madness and PaperCrafts.  She has also been featured in various Manufacturer post card mailings, packaging, catalogs, magazine ads and websites.

Lisa runs a weekly crafting challenge on her blog each Friday for the past 7+ years called BLOGGERS CHALLENGE.  She also takes care of all the ODBD, NCC and AO blog posts, the YouTube monthly videos along with the Facebook and Pinterest pages. You can find Lisa at many of the ODBD shows and conventions!

As described by Angella, “I am a Christian, daughter, sister, and wife....very happily married for 22 years to my very best friend, who is so supportive of anything I do! I work full time in accounts receivable and collections, and have a home-based business in which I help others with essential oils and all-natural products. I used to be obsessed with cross-stitch, until I was introduced to stamping over ten years has not been the same since!!!   I am so very  blessed to be a designer for Our Daily Bread Designs, who carries the most awesome Christian-based stamps! The Lord blesses each of us with our own gifts and talents and He instructs us not to hide those gifts under a bushel......stamping and crafting is a way that I share His love with others.  Our Daily Bread designs provides us with the very best tools to bless others with His word and His principles. I feel so fortunate and blessed to be a part of the ODBD family!!” 

 Angella has been a Design Team member since December 2008 and is our “oldest” member.  Her style varies from very detailed to clean and simple.  She is well known for her meticulous hand piercing on her cards and her beautifully made bows.

Angie as she is known by all of us and has worked in many capacities for ODBD.  She has created Product Review picture tutorials for the blog and has taped many videos for our ODBD You Tube channel, each having thousands of views.  Angella’s favorite job has been choosing and featuring our Customer Card of the Week on our blog. 

We are blessed to have Angella helping us out at several stamp shows a year were she shares her love and passion for the Christian based stamps that ODBD offers.
