Thanks to all of you who responded to our recent call out for new design team members. We're happy to introduce you to seven new ladies who are joining our team today. I hope you will give them a big welcome!
My name is Ilona Zbieg but my ‘scrapbooking’ name is Teo. I am 36, and live with my 2 children, husband & cat. I emigrated from Poland to Ireland with whole my family 9 years ago and we are well settled in now.
I love my new home for it's green colour, beautiful mountains, amazing castles and fabulous cliff coasts.
For last 6 years I have been expressing myself mainly through paper work – cards, albums, LOs and so on. Making LOs is a great change from small forms I made every day. It is still bit new for me but I am continuously trying to develop that area of scrapbooking. It's both fun and challenging.
My dream is that my hobby will become my work one day and also that all my work would be piece of art straight from my heart.
Hi, I’m Kay Miller. I live out in the country with my wonderful family and lots of furry friends. I have been making cards for over 20 years now and never seem to get tired of it. In the past year or so I have fallen in love with die cutting and using dies on my cards and projects. When I am not in my craft room making cards, I love to go on long walks with my dogs. I enjoy photography, digital scrapbooking, and creating Christmas ornaments out of polymer clay. I’m love to create and have to have a little creative time every day to keep me happy :) I am thrilled to be on the design team at Poppystamps and look forward to creating many projects with their beautiful dies.
Hi, my name is Marybeth Lopez, I was born and raised in California. I am a wife, mother of 4 grown children (3 daughters and 1 son), and grandmother to 12. I am also one of seven Mary’s (all my sisters) (and 2 brothers). All our names begin with Mary and its one word. I love all paper crafts, gardening, crochet, cross stitch, holiday decorating, and baking. We live at the foothills of Rancho Cucamonga, California with our German Shepard: Major….So the nest is not quite empty yet. He is one amazing life guard when the grandkids come swimming.
My name is Pam Simpson I live in South Yorkshire. England with my husband of 49 years. We have two grown up married adults, they left the nest 25 years ago. They have given us four grown up amazing Grandchildren.
As a stay at home wife and mum, I’ve always had hobbies - sewing, knitting, and for 10 years, card crafting. Since finding cutting dies, my passion, I craft every day I can. I love to cut a die shape from card stock and make a card design around this.
I’m honored and excited to be joining Poppy Stamps design team and sharing my love of card making with you.
Hi, my name is Sue McRae and I live in a small town just outside of Canada’s National Capital, Ottawa, with my husband. I’ve been a paper crafter for over 20 years and became addicted to rubber stamping after I made my own Christmas wrapping paper. I have dabbled in a variety of crafts over the years, including jewellery making, embroidery and knitting but my passion is working with paper. Paper crafting has progressed and changed so much over the years, especially with the addition of die cutting machines, but I am always excited when an “old” product or technique becomes “new” again. I am thrilled to be on the Poppystamps design team and I hope to inspire you to love paper crafting as much as I do.
I love being creative!! I really love making cards with various and awesome stuff such as stamps, inks, dies, pattern paper and many more. I have been working as a Graphic designer since 2000 and this career has helped me in many ways when designing cards. I endlessly want to make various attempts and share my creativity with you. I am so excited to be a part of The Poppy Stamps Design Team!
My name is Zuzana Obert I've been married for 5 years and live with my lovely husband Boris in Kingston Upon Thames in UK.
All my life I have loved art and crafts. As a child I designed some jewellery for my sister, me and our dolls. When I got a little older, I found that I loved to craft.
6 years ago I discovered card making and paper crafting and designed my whole wedding stationary. Everybody was amazed! Now I am commissioned for Simply Cards and Papercraft UK magazine and I am Daring Cardmakers design team member creating regular challenges for papercrafters.
For me to design cards, playing with paper, glue and all pretty embellishments is the most creative release. I am still learning new techniques, and collecting new experiences. I try to challenge myself each time I create card and make something unique, whether it's cute, bold or shabby. Seeing the smiles on the faces of someone I give a card to is priceless.
