Hi Everyone I'm Penny, 39yr old married and currently a stay at
home mum. Im a REgistered Nurse and I specialise in Geriatrics
nursing. As of today (2nd May) I am now a qualified Massage
Therapist too and IM really looking forward to exploring massage as
a profession. I have three children one of which is purely craft
addicted like her mother.. I love sewing, and papercraft is a very
recent addiction to me.. we can add bear making, sewing, machine
embroidery, applique and more to the list of crafting pursuits! My
favourite colouring medium is copics but i also have prismas, lyra
colour crayons and stampin up markers. I am a Kaszazz consultant
within Australia but I tend to just buy products for myself! I
would love to eventually teach card making to small groups
regularly but I am yet to get up the guts to put myself out there
to show people how to craft! Im thrilled to be playing on the DT
again this term and am looking forward to watching the team grow,
watch the creatioins and specifically interact with you all on the
AIF forums! Pen

Monica Design Team Coordinator

I have many passions in life but quilling has to be one of my
favorite as I have been practicing this art form for over 30 years.
I also love making cards and doing other crafts as well. I am a
planner when it comes to my ideas for new quilling items or card
patterns so I seem to have a bunch scattered around my studio
waiting to get done. I have 2 blogs http://giddygreetings.com which I
focus on quilling and crafts and then I created my other blog,
Going Green Crafters And Artists http://www.ggcaa.com to have a place for
people to show off their Eco Friendly works of art and that blog is
going on an amazing journey. Happy crafting!

Brandy Jarvis

I have been a paper crafter at heart since I was a little girl.
When my mom would go visit her girlfriends I often brought along my
craft box. A cardboard box with a removable lid that I had cut leg
holes in the side of so I could flip it over and use the bottom as
a work surface. I would pack all of my craft supplies... crayons,
construction paper, scissors, glue, my prized self inking stamps
and stickers. LOL. So it's no surprise that I am now a full blown
paper crafting addict :D I have three beautiful little men that
inspire me daily AND the cherry on top of it all is I have the most
amazing man by my side who shows "proper" enthusiasm and fully
supports my need to craft LOL.


Hi this is Terrie, I am so excited to be part of the AIF Design
Team! I enjoy making handmade cards, gifts, party favors, and
sewing projects for family and friends. My goal is to have fun and
share inspiring paper art projects created on a reasonable budget.
Being a bit of a creative computer geek, I regularly integrate
technology into my paper crafts, and love my Silhouette digital
cutter, Singer embroidery sewing machine, digital camera, Adobe
CS3, and the color laser printer. So technically – I am a hybrid
crafter and digital stamping has limitless possibilities! I am a
native of Kansas City, Missouri but have lived in the San Diego,
California area for 20+ years. By day I work for a special district
in San Diego County. I share my heart and home with Oscar, my
handsome sweet man, and our two rescue-mini Dachshunds named Roger
and Rosie. They all three support my crafting habit by affording me
my own space... with a door to close when it all becomes a little
too much. We have our own small business a line of pet bedding that
we have designed and manufactured — www.kuddlekots.com. Visit my blog
