A Fellow Canadian on our new DT

Everyone it's time to introduce Cindy-Lynn Taylor, a fellow Canadian, altho we are on opposite ends of the country :)

My name is Cindy-Lynn! I live in the Great White North of Ontario Canada. I have a four legged little pal named Gizmo that that I truly adore. As I have no children, I treat him like my son, spoiling him to a point that beyond repair! *grin* I always have time to hide in my studio with my loyal baby boy sleep on my feet, keeping my toes warm!
I have been paper crafting for over 10 years. Scrapbooking and Stamping has come such a long way over the years, and I have grown so much. I have been a designer for multiple stamp companies, and loved every moment of it. I have taught classes for years, and currently teach classes in the little town of North Bay where I live. I am a proud member of a few design teams, and am now so very excited to be a part of the AI Factory Challenges and meet all of you that read this blog and play in the Challenges! I am looking forward to meeting new faces, and making some new friends along the way.
I hope I create something that inspires you, for as long as my loyal blog readers and fans are with me in this journey I am a very happy person (((Hugs)))
 We are very excited to have Cindy-Lynn on our team and I know that you will see some great projects from her! Please leave a comment on her blog  and make her feel welcome!

Meet and Greet our New DT Member Scrappy

Hey everyone! Sorry for posting late today!  My son is teething and life has just been a struggle lately.  I am happy to announce our next DT member, who is no stranger to the world of blogging and cardmaking.  I'm sure you've seen her creations everywhere! Please welcome

'Scrappy' has been crafting pretty much her entire life - she's even owned her own handicrafts business! She has been chiefly scrapping for the last 4 years and stamping for 3 years. To feed her ever increasing curiosity about paper-crafting, she took a job at a local stamp store, joined their LSS design team and represented them on The Martha Stewart Show!  She is proud to be one of the founding members of Splitcoaststampers infamous 'Stamp Ho's' - even going so far as to organize 2 stamping conventions for them in 3 years! 
Scrappy picks up things relatively quickly, and she is always eager to learn or try something new. She currently serves on 8 design teams and continues to guest design for others! Her inordinate of energy, has her creating or blogging in her studio at all hours of the day and night. She is delighted to join the AIF DT and share their creative designs with everyone!

Introducing....Anne Campbell

Hey everyone! Thanks so much to those of you who have entered our challenge so far! It's been great checking out your wintery entries.  If you are looking for the current challenge click here

Today I am introducting to you the first of our many talented new DT members!  We are very excited to have her on board and I know that you can expect some great inspiration pieces from her in the coming weeks.

Here is Anne!
Hi I'm Anne and extremely proud to be part of the DT.  I am happily married to a long suffering husband who accepts my craft addiction without question.  We have two grown up children and a fantastic granddaughter who is 12. 

I have been crafting since I was little.  Mum taught me to knit when I was quite young and I used to knit clothes for my dolls.  Late teens saw my friend and I buying material to make a dress on a Wednesday, cutting it out the same night, sewing it on Thursday and wearing it on Friday when we went dancing!  I knitted and sewed for the children when they were small then discovered x-stitch.  I did that for a few years till we had no more space on the walls for pictures! 

In 2001 I had an accident and while recovering decided it was time for more 'me' time.  One of the girls I worked with went to card making class and used to bring her creations in to show me and of course I thought 'I could do that' so, once on my feet again, Saturday afternoons saw me at class and the rest, as they say, is history.  I started my blog in 2007 and have 'grown' since then as there are so many talented people in blogland to learn from.  I'd be delighted if you 
popped in to have a look around my blog called Wicked Designs.
I hope you will all stop by Anne's blog and leave her some love and make sure you keep checking each week to see Anne's take on the current challenge!
Happy Scrapping Everyone!
