Welcome, Sherry and Aimeslee!

Click HERE for our current challenge!

Hi everyone! I've popped in this morning with a couple design team updates. Heather and Kathy, two of our DT members, are stepping down at the end of December. We'd like to thank these ladies for their service to our design team and wish them success in their crafty endeavors. Big hugs from all of us here on the team, and we look forward to seeing them around blogland. :)

On that note, our friend and former teammate, Sherry, is coming back to the Love To Craft Challenge Blog DT and will begin creating with us on January 1st. We are absolutely thrilled that she's coming back! Be sure to check out Sherry's blog - Loose Stitches and Unraveled Threads. We know you're going to love what you see!

So, without further ado, here's Sherry....
Hello, I am Sherry. I'm a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed crafting ever since I can remember, like painting, needlework, scrapbooking, crocheting, drawing and coloring. I have found that I really enjoy creating cards and have recently started working with mixed media. I am so very excited to be a part of the Love To Craft Design Team!

Welcome aboard, Sherry! We're definitely looking forward to crafting with you again!

And now, let me introduce Aimeslee, our other new teammie who will also begin crafting with us on January 1st! Aimeslee is super talented and I can't even describe how excited I was when she said 'yes' to my invitation to join the team! Be sure to check out her blog - Paper Paisleys. We know you'll agree with us that she's got it going on! ;)

And here's Aimeslee...
I'm Aimeslee and I live on the upper Texas gulf coast about 30 minutes east of Houston. My husband and I are the very proud parents of a grown daughter who is getting married in 2 months. We are also owned by a community cat named Carmella who hangs out in our backyard a lot. Honey is an ExxonMobil retiree and I'm a retired tax accountant whose first love was and still is writing. I've been a passionate hobby artist since 2004. I am quite eclectic in my tastes, style and crazy ideas. I began like so many others with scrapbooking, but have since added card making, art journaling, collage and mixed media to my art adventures. I am very excited to join this wonderful team of designers who have inspired me while I've played here at LTCCB. Here's to lots of art play fun in 2020!

Welcome to the team, Aimeslee! So happy to call you teammie, and we're looking forward to crafting with you!

Hugs,
Leslie & the DT

LTCCB #39 - October Anything Goes


Hi everyone and welcome back to the Love To Craft Challenge Blog! Thanks to everyone who played with us in last month's challenge! We absolutely loved seeing all your amazing creations! The design team has a tough job ahead of them but be sure to check back on the 5th of this month for our Winners and Top Picks!

Before we get to the challenge details, we'd like to say good-bye and bid a fond farewell to our teammies, Sam and Carol, who are stepping down from the team. Thanks for all your wonderful projects ladies and we hope to continue seeing you around blogland! We wish you the very best and we'll miss you. Big hugs from all of us!

On that note, we'd like to welcome two new members to our team! Please say hello to Helen and Dorlene! Be sure to check out their blogs! These are a couple super talented ladies and we know you're going to love what you see!

My name is Helen and I live in the north west of Britain on the Wirral peninsula. I'm a full time Activities Coordinator for a charity which provides care for older people. I spend my time organising activities, entertainment, trips out etc and can often be found calling bingo, leading chair exercises, singing or playing dominoes! I also work part time for a local stamping firm teaching regular workshops for them. In my spare time I'm a card maker and I love my Promarkers and patterned papers. Looking forward to creating with the Love To Craft Challenge Blog design team!

AND...

I am a wife of 33 years, mother to four young adults, and grandmother of one. I have loved to create my whole life and was lucky enough to have a mother who supported it. I started scrapbooking in 2000 and never looked back. Scrapbooking introduced me to stamping and paper crafts and so much more. I don't have one set style since I love experimenting with new mediums and techniques. I do love to get my hands messy! There's not much better than inky fingers! When I'm not in my craft room, I love to read and watch tv with my family.


Okay, back to the challenge. The Crafty Girls have been busy creating some pretty amazing projects to inspire you to play again this month! Take a look...
