Introducing the new Artfull Crafts Design Team!!

It's with great excitement we reveal the new Artfull Crafts Design Team! 
We welcome our 5 new Team Members. In the next few days we will reveal the fabulous Artfull Gallery filled with the work from these talented ladies. Until then, enjoy this blog post with some snippets of their work and links to their blogs. Exciting times ahead...!



Sandy Ang

Sandy is based in Singapore and has a love for Sassafras, Crate Paper, Pink Paislee, Glitz Designs and Teresa Collins. She's a talented crafter and designs for the manufacturer Best Creations and for a Singaporean and Australian scrapbook store. Sandy is also a talented photographer!

Being engaged creatively is high on the list of what makes Sandy happy. She enjoys learning,trying new techniques and styles. She also believe in sharing with others either through tutorials on her blog or through little scrappy giveaways and challenge prizes. Connecting with other crafty people regularly gives her a wonderful sense of community.

 Lindsey March

Lindsey lives in Tauranga NZ and brings to the Artfull Crafts Team a wealth of crafting knowledge. She's dabbled in knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, applique, patchwork and quilting! However, nothing has hooked her as much as scrapbooking has. She loves Echo Park, Basic Grey, Prima, Tim Holtz, Jillibean Soup, Cosmo Cricket to name a few. She's also addicted to paper, paper, paper and also flowers, punches, ribbon, buttons, lace, inks, chipboard, paint - yes - just about everything.

She is inspired by her three adorable grand daughters and she loves the way that scrapbooking is a brilliant way to combine her love of taking photos and her desire to tell her family's stories.

 

Louise Forsyth

Louise lives in Dannevirke, NZ and she's about to have another baby! She creates mostly cards at the moment and is a DT member for a few other Teams. She creates fabulous cards which are filled with lace, flowers and coloured images.

Louise and her friend Tracy set up the Southern Girls Challenge Blog a couple of years ago and they love encouraging the NZ and Australian craft community to share their creations.
Louise has her personal blog at http://punknscrap2.blogspo​t.com/


Lisa Skinner

 

Lisa loves to create and enjoys spending time scrapping or working on projects in her spare time. She loves Kaisercraft, Bo Bunny, Webster’s, Echo Park, October Afternoon, Crate Paper and Girls Paperie. Like most of us she loves paper, but she also loves to play with ribbons, string, flowers, brads, tags & all the cute little bits out there!

She has a husband & two gorgeous children, Emily 13 & Joel 9. She works casually at her local scrapbook store in Victoria, Australia.

Christine Bonifacio

Christine comes from a diary farm in Temuka, NZ and has a grown up family. She's been a keen crafter for many years and enjoy both making cards and scrapbooking. Christine loves using dies, embossing folders and stamps and she pays careful attention to the details on her creations. She loves to check out the blogs and is always interested in the new items that come to the market. Luckily Christine lives locally - and so we'll enjoy working closely with her!


And we have three members remaining on the Team:

Betsy Clark

Betsy Clark lives in Geraldine, NZ with her husband. She has grown-up children and enjoys being a grandmother. She's a respected member of the South Canterbury community - involved in her local church and in teaching craft classes.
Betsy's cards are exquisite and much-admired. In fact Kaisercraft asked Betsy to create cards for their recent CHA stall in America! She loves using Martha Stewart Punches, Spellbinders, Just Rite Stamps and enjoys searching the Internet for the newest products. Besty is the designer of the ever popular Card Temptations Kit.

Lowri McNabb - Design Team Manager


Lowri is a busy mother to three small children and lives on a vineyard in Blenheim, NZ. She enjoys many types of papercrafting and loves making BTP projects, mini albums and other gifts to give away.
Lowri has a clean style of crafting and is a fan of Cosmo Cricket, Kaisercraft and Basic Grey. She's always on the hunt for the perfect adhesive and is always trying to improve her photography skills.

Liz Gregory - Owner and Creative Director

Liz loves crafts and enjoys teaching classes at her shop in Timaru, NZ. Artfull Crafts takes up most of her time, although she enjoys spending time with her lovely husband Graham, visiting friends and being involved with their local church. She splits her time between card-making, scrapbooking and beyond the page projects and tries to do a little bit of crafting every day! Liz's favourite brand would have to be Kaisercraft. She's enjoyed a long relationship with them and loves the variety of products and projects the release. She's looking forward to contributing to the Team!
