Winners & Welcomes!

We have some talented new designers coming to our Education Design Team starting this month & we know you will LOVE all of the wonderful things they will be sharing with you in the upcoming months.  Please help us welcome...

Well over 10 years ago, I ventured into the paper crafting industry with scrapbooking and card making. Eventually, I moved into rubber stamping and this led me into the world of coloring. Through this world of coloring, I found Crafter's Companion and all of their awesome products, and stamping and coloring soon became my passion (obsession!). I am so excited to be a part of the Crafter's Companion design team and am looking forward to creating projects to both inspire and help others learn new ways to use their products.

I live in northern Illinois and work as a pre-press operator for a global pre-press company. I share my world with my husband Ken, my three boys, ages 26, 24 and 17, a daughter-in-law, a daughter-in-law in waiting, and a beautiful 1 year old granddaughter. Oh... and I can’t forget our two spunky little Yorkies!

My name is Lori Williams and I’m a happy fun loving southern girl from Western North Carolina, USA.  I’m thrilled to be able to work with Crafters Companion as they have a little bit of everything, plus I get the joy of working with my sister Gini, who also serves on the team.  Gini and I live right next door to each other so we are constantly encouraging, critiquing and enabling each other.
My background is in Metals/Production Crafts but I’ve always worked with various forms of mediums, including pottery, metal, fabric and paper. I try to incorporate some of my metal into my current work whenever I can.   My style is one that is clean yet very detailed and I love to create handmade paper flowers. 

I have two adorable little boys, Cole and Will, that have stolen my heart, along with our Wheaten Terrier, Finley.  There is never a dull moment in our household, that’s for sure.   I enjoy reading, cooking, spending time with family and believe it or not…. pushing myself in Crossfit/Circuit Training.  My goal in life is to be better today than I was yesterday and to make sure I pay it forward.

I’m Dana and I live in Brighton, Michigan. I’m currently doing school full time and working in retail part time. I have been card making for about 11ish years or so and in 2011 (I think, hehe) I started my blog. Since then I have been lucky enough to be published, to be a part of a few different design teams and make some awesome friends along the way! I am mainly a card maker and my great crafty love is stamping, so I really love my stamps and inks! I love mixing stamping with different techniques and products, for example: stencils, dies, pattern paper, ink, paint and embellishments. A love of coloring has grown over the past couple years, too! I’m excited to be joining the Crafter’s Companion Design Team and I hope you will enjoy my creations!

Hi! My name is David Falcon, born in Mexico. I live in Sebastopol California, I've been working for Crafter's Companion for over five years now as Graphic Designer. I work with some of the Crafter's Companion staff to create and design projects posted on the website as well as creating some of the designs for the projects of the month. I also am an artist behind the scenes as well as a webmaster making sure the website at Crafter's Companion is up to date with new products and sales. I am excited to be a part of Crafter's Companion USA design team and am looking forward to creating fun and fresh projects.

We also have a few changes to our International Inspiration Design Team.  Vera Yates and Trena Brannon will be moving from our Education Team to this team!  We are excited to continue working with them!

Just seen my name on the winners list for the Aqua Markers and video tutorial on Sara Davies blog. I'm hoping I'm the only Jennifer Gardiner that entered. Have no excuse to re-start my water colouring and having just bought the Scruffy Kitten stamps I will be well away for having lots of fun. Still in shock-THANK YOU SO MUCH. JENNIFER.
