Meet The New Design Team

Today is the Day!  You all get to
meet the new design team!
They are so much fun!  Check
out their projects and learn a little
bit about each of them.  Be sure
 to visit all their blogs too
and say hello:)

I'm just a Scrapper In The Making
 (aka Frank-Lee Speaking) scrapping my way
through this thing called life. I love crafting and 
have an Insane "Paper Passion".
I'm married to my handsome husband, Fred of 
almost 7 years. I'm a first time mom to our 
beautlful ittle 2yr old girl and a step-mother
to 4 wonderful children(2-boys, 2-girls). I work
full time and when I'm not enchanted with my little
one and family, I'm scrapping 'til the weeee,
weeee hours :-). My DH bought me my Cricut
Expression for Christmas in 2009. When I finally
opened it, I was hooked at first cut. That's
when my inner Scrap-Beast was unleashed. LOL...

I'm not sure what represents my crafting style as yet,
but I Love, Love, Love trying various stamping/inking
techniques. I look forward to sharing some of those
techniques here as a Design Team member with the
Inking It Up Crazy crew. Come grow and learn with
me on this Scrapping Journey. Have a Super Scrapping Day

I am newly married and loving it. I live in lehi with
my amazing hubby and our dog oakley. I enjoy
spending time with friends and family. I also
enjoy singing,dancing,hunting and of course crafting.
I work full time but I am trying to become a 
photographer. I am very happy and excited to
be on kassidy's design team.

Hello! My name is Indira, and I am so thrilled 
to have been asked by Kassidy to be one of her
designer for Inking it Up Crazy! I live in 
Dominican Republic, that`s an island on the
Caribbean. I live with my DH and my two kids,
a 6 years old boy and a 4 years girl. I have a full
time job, so I try to craft at night. Which so little
time to craft, I try that my projects to be easy and
quick, but also cute and beautiful. So I hope you
join us on this wonderful journey.

Hello!  My name is Jennifer Ruiz.  I am 25 years old
and I have been married to my wonderful husband
Gabriel for 2 1/2 years.  We have a Dachshund named
Pippin that we treat like our child.  I first started getting
into crafting after I attended my first Stampin' Up!
workshop.  Soon after that I went on YouTube to
find stamping tutorials and that's when I found the Cricut.
 I had heard about it from my friends for a few months
before that, but didn't really understand the wonders 
it could do until I saw it on YouTube.  Two weeks after
that I bought my Expression.  I now own over 50 cartridges
and even a Gypsy.  I love creating and sharing it with others.
  I couldn't imagine my life without crafting now.  I am so
honored to be part of the Inking it Up Crazy design team. 
 I look forward to meeting new people and sharing
my ideas with everyone.  Happy Crafting!!

Hi, my name is Melanie and I have always loved to craft,
draw or design since I was little girl.  I decided continue
to pursue my love of design in college and majored in
Architecture.  I enjoyed my job thoroughly, but with
the down turn of the economy over the past few years
my job was eliminated.  I now found myself in a new role
of being a stay at home mom to my beautiful boys,
Tyler (4) and Bryan (20 months).  It is such a great pleasure
to be at home with them, but I still found myself wanting to
do something creative.  I had done scrapbooking at this point
for my older son, but was interesting is getting a Cricut. 
I receive my Cricut Expression this past Christmas along 
with my Gypsy and I haven’t looked back since.  Any free
moment I have, especially during nap time, you can find me
in my craft room.  I would describe my style as simply detailed.
  I like my work to draw your eye into the card or layout and
keep it moving from one detail to another by using texture, 
depth and sparkle.  I am so delighted to be a part of 
Kassidy’s, Inking it Up Crazy Design Team and to 

share my love of craft and design with you. 

My name is Nicole but in blog world I go by “teachdanz”. 
I am a wife, mother of 3 daughters, dance teacher and
group fitness instructor and I reside in Oregon.  I teach
several different exercise formats including weight lifting,
spinning and yoga for two gyms in town.  I also teach
ballet, jazz, tumbling and tap in the afternoons and
evenings.  I started scrapbooking and stamping when 
I was pregnant with my first child over sixteen years
ago.  I got my “baby bug” for my 40th birthday and now
work with a plum cricut expression.  I am hooked on my
cricut!!  I mostly make cards because my life is very
busy and there never seems to be enough time to
scrapbook.  I would describe my style as fairly simple
and clean.  I love to try new techniques and am inspired
by following lots of talented crafty bloggers.   

Each day I wake up and thank God for blessing
my life so abundantly. I've met and married my 
true love and we've made the most precious baby
girls together. My life as a mother and a wife is
more than I could have ever asked for and I am
so thankful. I love to laugh with my friends
and I long to see my parents and brothers. 
As a teacher, I'm fortunate to have the opportunity
to educate young minds and help my students
strive for success. I'm living each day in God's
glory and I'm anxious to see where he will lead me.
