Guest Designers
Marilyn from One Stamping Fool
My name is Marilyn and I live with my hubs on a farm in Saskatchewan Canada. I work full time but enjoy spending any spare time crafting and getting ink, glue and sparkles all over myself. I have been stamping and creating cards since the fall of 2009, dabbling a bit until I was given a set of Copics as a Christmas gift and that is the point where my addiction to paper crafting truly began. The journey started out slowly but the markers were the launching point for the obsession I have whereby I want it all and I want it now! I make no apologies or excuses for this compulsion and what some people might call ‘hoarding’... it is what it is and I enjoy it thoroughly.

Carole from Crafty Stamper

Hi.My name is Carol-I live in Kingston upon Hull-England. I will be 65 later this year,retired, married with three children -well adults! and 4 grandchildren. I have always done something crafty knitting,crotchet,cake decorating (I made son/daughters) wedding cakes,then I got into card making and mini albums -I have made one for each for daughter and both Sons -I started with stamping but now love digis and promarkers-we have 2yr old cat Millie and 10mth kitten called Puddlenut -I started my blog and entering challenges after having 5 mini strokes when I was 60 then out of hospital had my first tattoo -I then got accepted onto DT's and here am and delighted to be GDT for Crafting By Designs

Millazin from Millazin's Blog
A little about me: I'm in my thirties and live in Drammen, Norway.
I've been crafting for about two and a half years and love it.

I'm very fond of making grungy projects, such as this, but I
also make more delicate ones. I like to try different
things all the time, but folding techniques and metal tape are
my favourites. Hugs from Millazin
