Hi. I'm a papercrafter from Western Australia. I'm married to Paul and we have two teenage sons, Damon and Mark. I've been scrapbooking since 2003 and cardmaking was a bit of a sideline at the start but I find myself making them quite often now. I haven't bought a card for about 4 years now. I like to keep what I create fairly simple but sometimes do more elaborate ones and there's always something new to learn.

I'm looking forward to sharing my cards and pages with you and seeing what you create. Thanks to Susan for adding me to her Team.

I'm Tracey and I'm married with 2 boys. I love to papercraft, cardmaking, scrapbooking and making a bit of jewelry. I'm very lucky to be on some brilliant design teams from all over the world!

I'm a crafter living in Baltimore City, Maryland. I enjoy all sorts of crafting, from paper to clay. I'm been blogging for about 4 years, and enjoy being a part of challenging Design Teams like this one.
I'm excited to be a part of this unique team!

I am Shylaashree of Adhiraacreations from India, mother of two awesome kids and working as an Executive secretary in Titan Company Limited. Ever since I was a little girl I have found great joy in creating cards, books, and 3-D projects with paper. During a period of ill health I found the art of quilling to be very therapeutic. Since then I have become totally hooked on to quilling. My core strength is jewellery designing /making (was a designer sometime for Tanishq & Goldplus) and wall decors.  I look forward to working with the other DT members. I feel that being part of this team will be a challenge and yet I hope that my work challenges those who participate.

I have always been extremely passionate about crafts and arts and learnt to hold a paint brush before I could write! I have studied fine art (Sahyadri School KFI) and specialized in painting, human sketching and contemporary art sculpting. However, in 2010 my left brain activated (pun intended) and I pursued a charter holder in financial analysis (CFA).  Contrary to my own belief, I am able to beautifully manage both my professions (finance and craft) very well; in fact both complement each other in their own way. I love bringing a lot of fun, cleverness and wit to my craft projects as I use it as a medium to vent my emotions, portray my observations and express what I go through daily in my life. Apart from this I am a mother of a 2 year old daughter and she has learnt to paint and craft  (but doesn't know her alphabets yet!).

Well, that is it - no inspiration this week but plenty to look out for next week!

In the meantime, you can go HERE to find the DT's work from the beginning of the month
