Happy New Year and New Design Team Members

Hi everyone, Doris here today.
On behalf of the whole Design Team here at
Crafting by Designs, we wanted to 
THANK YOU ALL for playing along with
all our challenges this year, and hope
you'll continue to come back every week in the coming year.
We may all be in different parts of the world
but we have one thing in common, we all
start fresh on January 1, so we'd like to wish you all
a very happy, healthy, safe, and prosperous New year!

And now a fun announcements!
We're super excited to welcome THREE new Design Team members!
Please be sure to stop at their blogs and check out
their amazing work and welcome them to the
Crafting by Designs family!

I am lucky to call Colorado home, though I am a Buckeye through and through. I am married to Jeff and have two beautiful adult daughters. I have done some form of crafting my entire life. My paper crafting started with scrapbooking and one day, I begrudgingly went to a Stamping Up party….that was it. I was hooked. I am an active member of Splitcoast Stampers, have been on a few design teams, had my own design team blog for a short while and am now a lucky member of Crafting by Designs. My style is…I guess I don’t really have a style…I like mixed media, shabby chic and whatever floats my boat. I look forward to sharing my passion and creativity!

Hi, my  name is MariLynn. I have been crafting and making cards and art for over 30 years. I live with my husband and sons in rural Missouri. My crafting style is unique. I like to think outside the box. I like trying new things, like techniques and materials. There is a certain amount of joy and satisfaction that comes from taking a blank piece of paper and turning it into a work of art. I have been blogging about my art for 9 years on My Blog and I have been sharing my art on line at Splitcoast Stampers for 12 years. I hope my projects can inspire you.

My name is Laura and I live with my love in Pennsylvania with our cats, Mei Li and Kimber. I have been crafting and DIY-ing since I was young thanks to my mom, and after college I learned how to quilt, began stamping cards again, and made my first scrapbook! As a scientist, I craft to relax and express my creative side. It just feels good to create something. I love trying new techniques, strive to put trendy twists on classics for a modern look, and enjoy sharing my passion for crafting with others. 


  1. HAPPY New Year Everyone :)

    Congratulations and welcome to the new DT members!

  2. Happy New Year. Excited to craft and share this next year with Crafting by Designs.
