Meet our design team

Challenge blog owner

Hi everyone I am the blog owner, I have 3 children I live with one daughter and my partner.
I first got into crafting by a neighbour in 2012.  I enjoy all aspects of crafting.
I love colouring with pencils, 
I first got into blogging to show some cards I had made, I then got spotted by Bonnie who at the time was running her own challenge blog with another owner this was in 2012.  I then started on a few different design teams. 
Which took me into digital stamps and colouring.
Up until then I had only coloured a few digital stamps.
I eventually ended up running my own challenge blogs I love running challenges and meeting all sorts of different people, and love working with different digital  stamp companies.

I have also been on the design team at Polka doodles and felt honoured to  have had various different makes I made from polkadoodles on the tv at create and craft.
I am currently also on the elite design team at Rick St Dennis digital stamps.

I love every minute of it.

Hi I'm Tracy I have ben crafting for a while now and have dabbled in most things. My current choices are card making a tiny bit of scrapbooking and making jewellery.


I am married and live in Texas. I have 2 married sons and 4 grandkids. I have always been crafty. I started out with sewing, then embroidery, cross-stitch, and jewelry making. My sister got me into scrapbooking and then I started stamping and making cards a few years ago. I enjoy using digital stamps and love to bring them alive with my Copic markers. 



I’m a Librarian by profession, pretty much retired now. I've been into crafts since I was a child, I started off sewing, have done a bit of calligraphy, embroidery, cross stitch and blackwork. My main hobby now is card making and papercraft generally. Like many crafters when card making I sometimes use kits, I also use die cutting and embossing techniques and some stamping, my colouring is basic but it’s an area I plan to develop.

I belong to various Facebook groups such as Card Making Tips, Crafting with Jodie and Tonicaholics, I have posted a few cards to Tonicaholics and to Tonic Live Chat. My blog is at, however as you will see I’d not been active for a while. This was due to illness and bereavement with my in-laws who live in Suffolk, I live in Warrington so the distance was an issue. I was entering challenges and posting them on my blog until the problems arose with my in-laws. Things have been resolved now so I plan to get back into crafting again I have posted a couple of cards this week and also plan to review my blog. Being on a DT would give me a focus and target, and hopefully I’d have something to offer you too.

I’ve never been on a design team, but have submitted cards on the Create and Craft website. From that I was chosen as Club Crafter of the Month in 2015, and then appeared in their Club Magazine Summer 2016 in their Meet the Members feature. I’ve had two cards featured in Quick Cards made Easy. I have also passed the Certificate in Paper Craft through the Craft Qualifications Centre.
