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: http://cardmakinghobby.blogspot.com/or 

Hugs, Agnieszka

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!

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.

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 design team!

Hello! My name is Irena and I am from the town of Dobrich, Bulgaria. I am happily married to my best friend. I am a mother of two grown-up daughters and one son. I have a granddaughter and she takes me back in time to motherhood in the sweetest way. 

I feel free to call myself an artist, because I'm very artistic and I enjoy to practice this art ;) I still wonder whether to call my art hobby or lifestyle. 

I started with cards at the end of 2013. In the fall of 2014 I found mix media and since then it remains my preferred style. Although the cards will always have that special place on my work table. I still trying different techniques and in most cases I learn from other masters. 

I create. I’m looking for stories in everything. Sometimes I do found it and sometimes – did not ... but all the time I really enjoy crafting.

It is a big honor for me to be a part of Love to Craft Challenge blog DT. 

Hugs
Irena

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!

Leslie 
Owner
My name is Leslie. My hubby and I have four grown children, two grandsons and three granddaughters, scattered around the US. We live in beautiful Colorado. I began scrapbooking about 45 years ago - so long ago that all the fun papers and embellishments we use today hadn't even been thought of. I'm a crafting junkie and really enjoy creating all things paper - handmade cards, 3-D projects, mini albums, gift bags and paper shoes. I started blogging and entering challenges in 2011, and loved it so much that I started the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog in early 2013. It's been an awesome journey... so awesome and so much fun that she now has three sister blogs - Love To Craft Challenge BlogMix It Up Challenge Blog and Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog! Looking forward to crafting with these amazing designers! :)

Tina
Co-Owner
Hi, I'm Tina DeMarche, the Domestic Engineer of my home of four boys. I homeschool my youngest son and enjoy learning with him. I started cross-stitching at age 6 and have loved keeping my hands busy ever since. Cooking is another one of my favorite things I like to do and it keeps my hungry boys happy. 

I took a calligraphy class in 2001 and we would make Christmas cards to swap amongst ourselves. Thus began my love for card making, but I really didn't get into stamping until years later. I guess I have been stamping for 9 years now, but over the last 5 I have started to collect stamps and they have taken over my crafting closet. I'm excited to be joining Leslie on another Design Team adventure :o) 

Let's start this next adventure....
