Are you ready to learn a little bit more about our wonderful new DT ladies, who - come November 15th - will inspire you to use that stash?
We asked our Queens of Crap to tell us a little about themselves and hope you enjoy learning a little more about them as much as we did.
And when you have the time, don't forget to check out their blogs for some fabulous inspiration.
This time in alphabetical order, here are our first five Queens
"I hail from Maryland. I am married to a wonderful husband of 12 years who happens to be the best flag football quarterback that I know (in my own opinion).I have been blessed with 2 of the most fantastic children (Kyle & Kassie). My family are the reason why I scrapbook. They provide me inspirations for many of my scrapbook pages. I am a diehard Redskins fan! You can always catch me behind a camera taking lots & lots of pictures. My scrapbooking style is just me doing what I love!"
"My name is Dana Tatar and I am a stay-at-home mom. I have two daughters, Claire (4) and Scarlett (3). I married my high school sweetheart in 2003 and have been happy ever since. I graduated from MSU with a B.S. in Biochemistry and worked in that field for about 3 years before I gave birth to my first daughter and decided to stay home full time. I have had many hobbies over the years, but scrapping is the one that really gives me satisfaction.
I started scrapbooking to preserve memories after the birth of my first daughter. I love to mix products from different collections on my layouts and I frequently find inspiration in music, poetry and pop culture. I love fussy cutting and flowers and both can be seen on the majority of my layouts. I would say that my dominant scrappy styles are clean and simple and pretty chic, but I do like to mix things up a bit, depending on the paper or photos I want to use. When I'm not scrapping, I enjoy cooking and baking, reading, listening to music and spending time outdoors with my family and basset hound."
"My name is Jenifer Evans known on many scrapbooking sites as "Jennaroo"! I have 5 kiddos and am married to my high school swetheart! We live in a small farming community....and honestly there's not much to do besides scrap and chase my kids from one sporting event to the next! I have been seriously scrapping now for 2 years but started many years ago when my first child was born. I scrapbook to preserve memories for my children and theirs to come but I also scrap as a creative outlet for myself!
My friends and family make fun of me because I see things differently than they do, I get inspired by surroundings and often wonder how I can scrap them or incorporate them into my crafting somehow, whether it be something that would make a great title or something that could be altered or sqeezed onto a layout. I would say I have more than one style of scrapping because I don't want to limit my creativitey. My dominant style is shabby/pretty chic, but I've been known to produce grungy as well as clean and simple layouts once in a while. I pretty much go where the pictures and paper take me! "
"I am a wife and mother of 3 small children, ages 7, 3 and 19 months. I live in Burlington, Ontario, Canada. I have scrapbooked seriously for about 4 years now, but I have been interested in arts and crafts my entire life. My style is kind of eclectic and a bit cluttered. I’m not a big fan of using a lot of white space, as I’m sure that you can tell. If I see and empty space, I feel compelled to fill it! Fast! My favourite manufacturers are Crate Paper (my #1 fav), Echo Park, Glitz, GCD, Authentique, Little Yellow Bicycle, October Afternoon, Cosmo Cricket and Sassafras. I have a real love for retro and funky paper lines.
My real job is freelance Web project management, design and development. In fact, I designed, developed and wrote all the content for my own Blog. I have my own small business – Vickers Media, and I work part-time as a Web Project Manager at a marketing company in Mississauga – Spyder Works Inc. My specialty is open source content management systems like Joomla and WordPress."
"I'm from Quebec in Canada. I share my life with my boyfriend, my three cats and more scrappy supplies than I'll ever be able to use! I'm particularly addicted to paper, clear stamps and flowers (okay… and glimmer mists, and bling, and chipboard, and … you get the picture! lol!) I love to travel, and scrapbooking fits right into that passion for me. I scrap mostly my trips, and while I'm working on a layout, I'm immersed back into the place I'm scrapping. I forget everything else other than trying to find the perfect papers and embellies to match my photos! It's my escape!
I'm so excited to be on this team! I hope you'll join us! "
