We are excited to share our new group of designers. Their term will be from Aug - Jan (2014). Each of these ladies brings so much fun and wonderful creativity to the table and we're excited that they are joining us!
We've also split them in to 2 teams: Team Yumi & Team Fumi.
It really doesn't matter though, because we're all one big happy ohana.
Please welcome back
Senior Designer, Rosemary Shaner Bridges (2012)
|I'm a military brat who now resides in Midlothian, Texas (from Goldsby, Oklahoma) with my wonderful husband and sweet 5-year-old boy. I was introduced to scrapbooking by a friend in 1996, but a few years ago, I switched gears to card-making and 3-D projects. I love creating, whether it be in my craft room or in the kitchen...I love to cook! I'm so honored and blessed to be a part of this amazing team!|
Fun fact: I'm a military brat who spent a majority of my younger years in Germany. Even went to University of Maryland in Munich, Germany for 2 years.
Must have Crafty Tool: Sharp Scissors since I fussy cut almost all my images.
My Crafting Style: Symmetrical with ribbon and a bow somewhere.
Welcome to new team members:
