Hello! I have always enjoying creating and playing with paper. I scrapbooked for many years, but began focusing on primarily cards several years ago. Cards are the perfect tableau for a small, precise piece of art that I can create and share! I love that I can make a card and send it or give it to somebody and brighten their day. Fun, bright, colorful projects make me happy. I work full-time at a college, recently finished my second master’s degree, and enjoy traveling and hanging out with my biggest fan (husband, Guy) and our two dogs, I can be found in my craft room delving elbow-deep into bright colors, paper, glue, anything sparkly or shiny, and ink. I have also done demos and taught classes at our local paper crafting store, showcasing new products and sharing techniques. I also enjoy attending scrapbooking Expos and Conventions when I can, and participate in an annual crafting girls’ weekend at a beach cottage. I am also a member of Sparkle N Sprinkle’s Design Team. I am humbled and excited to be part of the Cardz4Galz Design Team. I hope you enjoy my creations.   I am excited to see all of yours and continue learning from all of you! Have a magical day!

Ina




My name is Ina and I live in Sunny Queensland Australia.
I have been married for well over 40 years and lucky
my hubby supports my hobby as I do his - Guitars.
 I have been crafting for a several years now starting of
Scrapbooking and then got hooked on card making.
My card making has a variety of styles depending on the occasion
and who they are for. Being retired gives me plenty of time to
indulge in my craft.
I love inking up my stamps, embossing and using my dies.
  and have recently gotten hooked on mixed media (which needs practice)
and getting inky fingers.
I enjoy the friendships you develop with fellow Designers
and learn so much from their styles and likes.
I am excited to start another New Adventure at
Cardz 4 Galz.

Hi, My name is Tammy. I live in Colorado with my wonderful husband and our two fur-babies! I've always had some kind of crafty thing going on in my life. But, when I started to make cards I knew it was the perfect craft for me because I love to color and create with paper. I think the best way to describe my style would be... bold coloring with mostly "cute" images and I love my die cuts! :) I also enjoy cooking, hiking, camping and spending time with my family and friends. I'm very excited to be joining the team!
