Design Team Info: Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog

I just wanted to take a moment to introduce you to the ladies I'm working with over at Scribbles Designs.  They are a fabulous group of women with their own unique vision and that is what it takes to make a good team.  It would be rather boring if we were all the same, wouldn't it?!   So without further ado, here are the ladies and what they have to say about themselves...

Sandy...owner
I've been artistic since I was "knee-high to a grasshopper" as my Mom would say and love color, zentangles, lettering, calligraphy, watercolor painting and now digital images & design. I am the artist behind Scribbles Designs and I am so excited to share my scribbles with the Design Team and you, the digital image world...

I hope that I can entertain and have a little part of your fabulous creations...
I live in Kelowna, BC Canada, a vacation destination for beaches & summer sunshine,wine, skiing (both water & snow),golfing, hiking and boating with my awesome hubby Boyd and our furry child, Ali.


Calypso...
My name is Nazeema Bastian, but everyone calls/knows me as "Calypso".
I started scrap booking back in 97, took a involuntary break and stepped into the card making ring in 2007. I love paper and dies...I love how with these two things you have an endless possibility to what you can create...
I am a very happy, quirky SAHM of 3 boys, a VERY supporting husband and a mini Yorkie. My time is divided to kissing scraped knees, cooking, cleaning, crafting and then ME time.

Cely...
My name is Cely and I live in Hawai'i on the island of O'ahu. I work in a 6th grade inclusion classroom. I also am married to a Navy man and have a Bombay kitty cat named Sabotage (who sometimes makes an appearance on my blog). I craft when I have a spare minute, making cards and other paper crafts. My favorite is anything Stampin Up! as I'm also a Stampin Up! demo and hold weekend card making classes. I like to combine the high quality SU card stock with digital images and Copic markers.

I am an artist, a Mom of two beautiful daughters and a wife of very supportive and charming husband.  I am a graphic designer, adobe made our life easier but I do like making actual things instead of seating in front of the computer.  Mostly I am making cards, tags and mini albums.  I love altering things.  I love making friends and it will be so fun when you have same hobbies and I am fortunate to have them here on Internet through blog, YOU-TUBE, FACEBOOK and many more networking sites.

I am just amazed with the friendship from all over the world who we never seen, we never talked but they become a really good friends. I am always thankful for friendship in my life. I am a stay home Mom and just because of all these talented people, I am able to spend my time creatively.
This is me....I love shopping and a cup of morning Tea (Chai :-) is my weakness!  My own Quote is - " I can not LIVE without GLUE or you can say my craft can not SURVIVE without ADHESIVE....LOL!"


Dawn...
So excited to be part of a new DT as I love to try all types of paper crafting and will happily flit from one thing to another as I discover a new passion! I am shocked to remind myself that I am 45 as it really doesn't feel that way in my head, even though my body seems to take delight in reminding me I'm not a teenage any more! BTW, I use!!! Way too much!

I currently live in New Jersey in a little town called Boonton with my hubby - we're only an hour from New York to the east and the Pennsylvania state line to the west. We moved here 3 years ago from Cambridge, England. We both love to travel, especially over here in the States as this country is HUGE!! There's so much to see and we've been lucky enough to have seen some amazing things in California, Arizona, Nevada, Florida, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey and Alaska - only 42 states left to visit ;)

I am on the Copics DT team for the Outlawz and part of the DT for The Octopode Factory and Eclectic Ellapu - I also design digis for Can You Digi It and for my Etsy shop, along with my super talented hubby who does some amazing digis of cars and bikes (yes, I'm highly biased!!). 

I have found that I love to be creative and that I super enjoy papercrafting!
I am always open to new ideas and techniques and love to challenge myself.
I find inspiration all around me in this incredible world God has created
and in the family and friends He has blessed me with. I live in the spectacular Yukon Canada. I am the wife to a wonderful man and a mom to four delightful children.


Sam... 
My name is Samantha Simpson but most people call me Sam. It’s nice to meet you. I guess it should come as no surprise to you that I love card making.  I started crafting about six years ago and take great pride in everything I make. I love paper and have a passion for making cards; it’s what I do. It’s who I am. But what I love even more is to sharing that devotion with others. I have had several different styles to my card making and it has evolved over the years; what I love is that I'm always learning something new and finding new ways to do things. I live with my fantastic partner Jono and my mad cat, Patch, who thinks he’s a dog. We live in the quaint, quirky and amazing ye olde City of York - UK; along with the Vikings, tourists and loads of friendly faces.

Sherry... 
I am from Minneapolis, Minnesota and I am Mom to Justin, Nana to Micah and Cassie, Married to Joseph. I love playing in my Craftroom making cards, or creating a scrapbook layout or mini album. I love Cardmaking, Scrapbooking and going on weekend retreats with friends. And now blogging.

Shirl...
Hello my name is Shirl Nases, I live on the Big Island of Hawaii.  I'm a SAHW (stay at home wife) and have been crafting for several years but never took it the next level since three years ago when I decided to have a blog. I have a very supportive hubby that deals with my passion and that's card making and working with all types of paper projects. I also have a cat name Mimi and raise love birds. When I'm not in my craft room I'm working in my yard.

Vicky...
I'm an accountant working full time and a mother of 4 great kids. I have an amazing husband who understand that in order to keep my sanity through all this I need to craft. I live in Quebec, Canada, so a lot of my crafting is done with French sayings. I have been crafting over 21 years and tried my hands at all kinds of techniques over the years. I'm fairly new to the blogging world. I have started blogging in March 2012 in order to join challenges. I became totally hooked!!!! I can't believe this world existed and I only found out about it then. I see blogging as a wonderful opportunity to improve my card making abilities. I have realized that through the web I get to meet amazing people from all over the world and learn from them. I'm in awe of all the wonderful blogs that I see and I hope that one day my blog will be up to that level.

Lisa...that's me!  And you already know about me.


I am honoured to be working with this incredible group of women.  I hope that you will join us every month over at the Scribbles Designs Challenge blogI'd love to see your unique creations.  Who knows, I may even be the one leaving you a comment with my official DT hat on; and I have to say, I'm liking how it fits!

Until next time,

I have done a card for the challenge Lisa. It's a bit of a take on a christmas card - more to our climate! I was kinda getting sick of wintry christmas cards and rebelled a bit!!!
