The Paper Players Guest Designers, January-June 2018
Hello! My friends call me Annie and I am beyond thrilled to join this talented group of designers for The Paper Players as a guest designer.
I hail from the Pacific Northwest and I have one grown son that I am so proud of every day. I’m also Grandma to a brilliant and handsome little guy. I absolutely love it when he visits “The Land of Yes!” Last but not least, I have four rescued fur kids that are always hanging out in "The Dog House" ready to help.
After retirement, I went back to my crafty roots. Card making quickly became my favorite hobby when a dear friend sent me a beautiful handmade card a few years ago. I was hooked and have been playing with paper ever since - enjoying retirement one card at a time! I make cards for family, friends, senior assisted living facilities and non-profit organizations.
I'm Jan and I live in the North Island of New Zealand with my husband of 35 years. My three fabulous children have left home.
By day, I'm a teacher-librarian at a secondary school but nights and weekends, I'm a card-maker and scrapbooker. I discovered card-making and the world of online challenges three years ago when I was off work with a leg injury and I've been addicted ever since.
I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator nearly two years ago and I'm enjoying the extra challenge of running classes and sharing my work with others.
I am so delighted to be joining The Paper Players as a Guest Designer as this challenge has always been one of my favourites. It was actually the first challenge I was ever brave enough to enter and the first where I got a mention, so it's extra special to me.
I’m looking forward to seeing the wonderful creations that will grace the gallery in the upcoming challenges and being able to participate in the challenge from the other side!
Hi, I am ElizStewart online and Elizabeth to all my friends and family! I am thrilled to be joining Paper Players for the next six months. I live on the Treasure Coast of Florida with my beloved golden doodle, Quinn.
I have been making cards for over 20 years. My card making addiction started with a visit to the design studios of Hallmark. I was mesmerized. Over time my passion and crafting space has just continued to grow.
My cards tend to swing toward clean and simple but I have found since I started joining challenges that I am experimenting more with other styles. There are just so many amazing cardmakers offering inspiration in our crafty world.
Unfortunately card making is only a weekend hobby, during the week I work long hours as a global research director for a biotech. But come Friday night, I am always thinking it is time to get inky!
I hope my cards spark something in you. I so look forward to hearing from and meeting you!
