Hi, friends! We just had a Design Team Call for the July-December term and we had a tremendous response. It was a tough call—seems like everyone is talented in their own way and it was difficult narrowing down to just five new members. But now I get the fun of introducing you to the new talent here on the team.
Meet Linda Trace
Hi! My name is Linda, I’m so excited to be back with A2Z. I’m a craft-a-holic from Australia, where I live with my three beautiful daughters and wonderful husband. My craft room is a constant work in progress (as is my style!) I love to paint, scrapbook, make cards, crochet and lots more. My favourite part about crafting has been the gorgeous community of wonderful, supportive women I’ve been lucky enough to become friends with. See you round the blogosphere soon! Here’s Linda’s blog link.
Meet Delia Gosman
I am from Brisbane, Australia in sunny Queensland , where I live on an acre with over 40 spoilt chickens, 2 spoilt rescue beagles, my husband and awesome 17yo daughter.
For many years I operated my own highly successful graphic design business until a disease stopped all that and so still needing a creative outlet I started making cookbooks and that led me to a craft store and now I am completely addicted. I have always loved stationery and so craft equipment is like being in heaven. I do anything creative, scrapbooking as number one and I like texture and height, flat designs are not me. Mixed media and off the page projects are a big favourite too, but I love a challenge and to try new things. When I am not running around after my animals or loving my daughter, I can always be found at my craft desk, often, very late into the night. www.jacobicreations.com
Meet Erica Andersson-Burke
Meet Monica Taylor
I have been creative all my life. It all started with learning to sew at an early age and progressed from there. I began scrapbooking when my son was born 20 years ago, then transitioned into card making about 5 years ago. While I am eclectic in my style, I do tend to create more vintage inspired projects. Vintage is timeless and I am able to bring back a point in time with my creations. I often work mixed media into my projects and enjoy altering items to bring them back to life. I am married and have one son in college. I have two little dachshunds and a beagle that keep me company when I am creating. You can find Monica’s blog here.
Meet Leslie Turner
Hi, my name is Leslie Turner. I’m married with two grown children and one granddaughter, and I live in beautiful Colorado. I began scrapbooking about 40 years ago, way back when scrapbooks were really bland – before all the fun papers and embellishments came about. For the last 20 years or so, my paper passion has been card making. I started out making computer-generated cards, graduated to card kits, then quickly realized that having my own stash of stuff was the way to go! The rest is history, as they say! I’m addicted to rubber stamping and also enjoy making 3-D paper projects, especially paper shoes and gift bags. I’ve been known to alter a few tins and boxes, and enjoy beading and making jewelry occasionally when I find time. Come visit me at my blog, Love To Scrap 2! Thanks so much for the opportunity to be a part of the a2z Scrapbooking design team!
