Welcome, Kim!

Click HERE for our current challenge!

Hi everyone! We have another new design team member! Please give a warm welcome to Kim who is getting ready to WOW you on October 1st with her first project as a new Love To Craft Challenge Blog DT member! Be sure to visit her blog - Pink Zebra Paper Creations - I know you're going to love what you see!

Now, without further ado, here's Kim, our new teammie...


My name is Kim. By day I am a K-8 teacher for iQ Academy. By night I am a crafting machine. I am very much a paper addict. I can't go into a craft or scrapbooking store without buying paper. I love anything that has to do with paper. Paper comes in all colors, patterns, sizes and textures. Paper can be cut, folded, crimped, embossed, glued, and stitched, just to name a few. I love to see what new things I can do with paper. My second passion is rubber stamping. I love to create cards using stamps. My next favorite thing to play with are dies and punches. I love to see what new techniques I can find using punches. Come follow me on my paper stamping and punching journey!


Welcome aboard, Kim! We're so very happy to have you as a member of our team! Looking forward to lots of fun crafting with you!

Hugs,
Leslie & the DT

Welcome, Agnieszka!

Click HERE for our current challenge!

Hello, crafty friends! I've popped in this morning to announce one of our newest DT members, Agnieszka, who will begin creating with us on October 1st! OMGoodness, you're going to love her projects! We are so happy that she's joined our team!

So without further ado, heeeere's Agnieszka!


Hi! My name is Agnieszka, my nickname is chanya13 and I live in Poland with husband, 6 cats and one big dog. 

I have been scrapbooking for 7 years now and I’m totally crazy about this hobby! My favorite things to make are cards, albums and notebooks but most of all, I love to make multilayer cards. I also like making exploding boxes and scrap book layouts. 

I have my own style and I love to use flowers. I sometimes make my own, either from paper or foam. I add butterflies, different media and lace of all kinds to my projects. I have a weakness for purple and pink and use them quite a lot. Vintage and romantic styles are my favorites. 

In my free time I like gardening, rock climbing, hiking and traveling. I also love photography. If you want to see my work, look here: https://cardmakinghobby.blogspot.com/ or 

Hugs, Agnieszka


Welcome aboard, Agnieszka! We are so stoked you're here with us and look forward to lots of crafting with you!

Hugs,
Leslie & the DT

Welcome, Sam!

Click HERE for our current challenge!

Good morning, crafty friends! I'm thrilled to announce another new member of the Love to Craft Challenge Blog DT! Meet Sam from A Crafting Niche - and what an amazing designer! We're so excited that she's joined our team!

So, without further ado, here's our new teammie!


I'm Sam, I live on the beautiful island of Anglesey, in North Wales with my husband Chris and our Springer Spaniel. I'm Mum to two grown up boys and a Nainie (Granny) to three grand children. I'm taking a break from paid work at the moment and am loving doing the things I want to do.

I have crafted since I was a child. I like to sew, making soft furnishings, clothing, patchwork and quilting. About twenty years ago, I got into scrapbooking which quickly lead to other paper crafting. I tend to make cards and tags, but like to try anything that takes my fancy. My other interests include baking and reading.

I keep a formal blog of my crafting: https://acraftingniche.blogspot.com/ 
and a more informal Facebook Blog: https://www.facebook.com/ACraftingNiche/ 
you can also find me on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/sam_squires_/


Welcome aboard, Sam! We're delighted you're here with us and look forward to lots of crafting together!

Hugs,
Leslie & the DT
