Welcome to our first “Official” post! We’re so excited to be here today, because we get to introduce you to our FANTASTIC Design Team!  We thought it would be fun to all have Hello-themed cards for our first projects. All the main products we used on our cards, are available at a2z Scrapbooking!

First up are our two fearless leaders, Design Team Coordinator-slash-Blog Administrator, Linda Trace (me)!


Hi everyone! I’m Linda, I live in sunny Perth, Western Australia with my 3 beautiful daughters and sweet husband.  I walked into a scrapbooking/craft store about 5 years ago, and fell in love immediately. I bought supplies for my first mini-album right then and there, and I haven’t stopped papercrafting since.  I’ve always loved art, crafting, stationery, stickers, fabric-crafts etc, so scrapbooking and cardmaking were always “in the cards” for me!

My favourite part of this fantastic industry, is the amazing group of supportive, and inspirational women that I’ve been so very lucky to become friends with! I run A Blog Named Hero, a challenge blog devoted to a love of Hero Arts (who doesn’t love HA??). I’m currently on the Design Team for Australian Kit Company, Polly! as well as Some Odd Girl. I’ve been lucky enough to be on the Neat and Tangled DT, Shopping Our Stash, as well as the Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Guest Design Team.

I’m a big fan of mixed media, layering (but not mess), and at the moment, I’m deeply in love with white, aqua and gold 🙂 I think it’s a love that’s gonna last a while lol.

I’m all about having a great time crafting, expressing yourself through your craft and I love helping people to discover what they love about papercrafting. I’m so excited to be heading up this amazing team of designers!
I have a blog, Linda Trace Designs, where I share my work. I’d love for you to stop by and take a look around!

Here is my card saying HEY to you!

Hey card_May 1

Next up, we have Elizabeth, our a2z Store Guru and Manager:


Hi ! Welcome to our blog! I am so excited to be launching this blog. I have been scrapbooking since 2012. I had a heart attack shortly after 9-11 and wanted my kids to know my story.Now I scrap just because it is therapuetic:)

I  am addicted to paper. I can just sit and look at it for hours. I really love the girly ones, but with two boys I rarely have an opportunity to use it.

I have been with a2z Scrapbooking since it started in 2007.  The company was started to raise money for Celiac and Behcets Awareness. We are all volunteers. I really enjoy working there. I love being able to meet customers from all over the world.

My blog is Visions of Paper.

My card for today features a bouquet of flowers for all of our wonderful readers!








And now onto the Design Team Ladies:


Say hello to Lisa Haines:



Hi, I am Lisa, aka “ThePurplePlace”, which is the name of my blog and also my favorite color!  I started card-making back in 2007,  and absolutely love everything about it.  I also enjoy blogging, taking card-making and technique classes and shopping for latest craft products.
The other loves in life are my hubby, my two grown sons and our three little Dachshund rescue dogs — Scout, Skye and Zeva, who have added lots of fun to our lives.     We all live very happily in tiny coastal town in Northeastern, Massachusetts.

Here is my card
