Design Team - 2013

It is with absolute pleasure that I introduce the ladies who make up the Card Crafter's Circle!  Each of us here at Card Crafter's Circle have our own style and special touches with our creativity, and it will be a joy to share with you. So come visit the team, and say g'day! Click on our names to go directly to our individual blogs....

G'day! I am the owner of Card Crafter's Circle. I am a 40-something mad keen crafter of paper, beads and fabric - I love to scrapbook, creating cards, making jewellery, and often have needle and thread in my hand!

I love sharing crafts with others, and the fellowship and friendship that magically appears when people craft together!  I have a special needs daughter, with multiple disabilities, so crafting is a much needed therapy and relaxation for me.

Together with my hubby and our wee doggie, I live in my rural hometown, in beautiful western Victoria (south eastern Australia).

Hello, my name is Jennifer Dunn and I'm from Yukon, Canada.  I am married to a wonderful man for over 15 years now, and we have four amazing children.  I am a homeschooling stay-at-home mom with a loving family that are very supportive of me.  I have been papercrafting for over 9 years, and I really enjoy it!  I don't know what my personal style would be catagorized as, but I love variety.  I love "countryish" and cutsie, buttons and ribbon. Things with meaning that hopefully touch the recipients with either a hug or a smile.  I look forward to sharing my creations with all the talent here at Card Crafter's Circle in the days and months to come.

Hi, I'm Sara.  I'm a 30-something wife, stepmother of five, nana of nine, and great-nana of one.  I also have two fur babies of the doggy persuasion and three of the kitty.  I was born in Guam when my dad served there with the US Navy, but wound up being raised a third of the world away in a very landlocked Idaho town of 550 people.  I'm still in Idaho - the 5th generation of my family to live in this state - but I did finally move to the "city".  

The number one thing I hear from my family in response to my crafts is "When did you learn to do THAT?".  Despite dabbling over the years with art and crafting, it's only been in the last few years that I've really discovered my creative streak.  I adore shabby chic style, though I feel like my own style changes depending on my muse.  I love to create and alter a variety of things, but have a soft spot in my heart for my cards because I know how much that little bit of thought, effort, and personalization means to the recipient.

I feel truly fortunate to be joining these amazing ladies on the DT, and look forward to getting to know more crafty people! My personal blog is Folded Paper & Printed Pixels.

Shirley-AnneHi there. I'm Shirley-Anne.  I am a full time carer for my husband . Papercrafting and blogging are my rest and recreational tools . I have tried many hobbies from writing short ....yes really, I can do short ...articles for magazines . Card creating has taken over my free time opposed to ironin , dusting and window cleaning; I find the instant gratification soothes my soul.

Having said that my richest pleasure comes from commenting on other papercrafters mini works of art .Kind words ..and one does not need to be patronising ,can encourage, enthuse and inspire the beginner as well as an established artist.  My style is definately CAS .  My personal blog is Stamping for Joy

Hello! I'm Teresa. I'm a mum of two, wife of one and lover of all things paper, wool and fabric :-)
I've been cardmaking for about five years now and just about got the hand of silicon glue!! I've been knitting and sewing since a little girl thanks to some great female influences in my family.

I work full time (unfortunately not in crafting!). About the crafting - I'm a designer for Do Crafts and demonstrate their products in stores too (which is such a cool job!). In my day job I'm involved in adult learning so I'm a huge fan of teaching others to find their way of having fun with paper and stuff. I'm really looking forward to playing with the designs we get given - more than that, I'm looking foward to making new friends x
