Meet the DT!

Here is our WONDERFUL Design Team 


Samantha - DT Owner
Hi! My name is Samantha, and I am the owner of the Crafty Gals Corner Challenge blog.  I started this blog 7  years ago, after being on several DT's I thought it might be fun to run my own.  Since creating this blog, I now have 2 beautiful babies and have started a full time business making custom made items.  My husband is a USMC veteran who currently works in construction.  Although I have to take a step back from running the blog on my own, my mom now does a lot of the day-to-day tasks, I still like to check in and see all the beautiful projects created!

Billie

"My name is Billie A. we live in SW Washington state out in the country and have 5 children between us and grandchildren and great grandchildren.  We have three four legged babies. I love retirement life as there is more time to create.   I have quite a few different crafts from quilting, crochet, x stitching and some paintings. My heart is in paper crafting and creating cards. I love to bring the images to life.  I love working with copics, paints, pencils and zig markers.  I am excited to be on Crafty Gals Corner design team.

I have been a paper crafter for more than 29 years.  I have tried just about every craft there is and paper crafting seems to have taken a strong hold on my heart.  From scrapbooking, to 3D projects, to card making, I love it all.  I'm excited to be a part of Crafty Gals Corner and to share in this talented group.

Howdy Ya'll! My name is Christopher Lopez, I live in sunny Santa Fe, NM. I have 3 fur babies Sayuri(husky) ,Shea(basset hound) & Stryker(fat black cat). When I'm not crafting you can find me cuddling with my fur babies or watching a good T.V. Show with the hubby. I have been a crafter all my life it seems. Growing up my Grandma was always making something, I have to thank her for my love of crafting. I also love crafting because I love to see a smile on someones face when they receive a handmade card or gift from me.

Dawn

Hello, I am Dawn.  I am a Maryland born girl who now calls Pennsylvania home. I am the wife of a retired Navy Chief and a mom of three adult children. I love all things "paper and ink". I acquired a love for stamping and creating cards about 9 yrs ago.. I enjoy all styles and look forward to trying new techniques/challenges. I love to craft and I spend many hours weekly in my craft room creating projects. I'm very excited to about being a part of the DT and look forward to my journey on the DT.

My adventure with paper crafting was literally dumped on my living room floor.  My daughter and daughter-in-law brought to mom 4 big totes filled with stamping up and close to my heart items.  This started my paper crafting addiction.  Hello, I'm Jana Forrest.  I live in a little town in the Willamette Valley in Oregon.  I'm married to 'The Bob' and have one grown daughter + daughter-in-law.  Retired from the IT business.  I love just about any sort of crafting, gardening, cooking and I really love to wash windows.  Nice to meet you!

Jeanie
I am the wife of a wonderful man, Charles, of going on 49 years. I am also a mother of 2 (Amy and Keith) and a grandmother of 3 (Caleb, Isaac, and Moriah), one of whom was married in August of 2019 to a very sweet young lady, Taylor.  My husband is retired Army and from American Railcar Industries and now has a part-time job.

I have always loved to craft in some way, mostly with colored pencils and sewing, but with the busyness of life, I got away from that. That is, until 1997, when I got into scrapbooking and found a new form of art and memories. I am currently a consultant (new term is Maker) with a paper crafting company. A few years ago I saw another form of paper skills from YouTubers….mini albums! I decided to try my hand at that, and I was hooked! Paper crafting became my new passion. So much so that I now have my own YouTube channel doing tutorials. I have been very busy, and loving it all!

Judy M.
(Currently on leave of absence)

I have been a scrapbooker since 1998 when my oldest daughter was born. Ever since then I have expanded what crafts I do which now includes scrapbooking, cardmaking, mixed media, jewelry making home decor projects and sewing (ok sewing is relatively new so I am still working on improving that one). I was always a hobbyist , but this past December I decided to really do these things full time, which is when I started my blog in earnest and started applying for design teams. I am having truly the most fun I have ever had.

Judy McKay
Hello, my name is Judy.  I retired several years ago and live with my husband, Glen in Vernon, British Columbia, Canada. We live in the mountains overlooking Okanagan Lake and you can find me almost any day hiking with my dog in the hills around our home.   We have 3 adult boys and 4 grandsons. I have been crafting for more than 15 years and love all paper crafts including mixed media, altered art, journaling and cards. I also dabble in paper making, photography, fibre art, and altered books. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”

Judy V.
Hi my name is Judy.  Originally a Louisiana native, I live near Denver, Colorado, where my husband and I have raised our son and daughter. 
I have enjoyed crafting since I was a teenager and have done anything from sewing, crewel embroidery, silk flower arranging and jewelry making, to name a few, but paper crafting is truly my passion. I love taking paper and embellishments and turning blank backgrounds into something special and unique.  
I currently serve on several design teams and thoroughly enjoy working with and being inspired by other crafters from all around the world."

Lena DT Coordinator
I was born in Lisbon, Portugal but raised in Durban, South Africa. We have now called Pearland, Texas, home for the last 22 years. I'm a stay at home mom who has been married to a wonderful man for 33 years, and I have two great children, a daughter who is 30 and a son who is 24, and two grandbabies, Emma who's 6 and my little guy, Derek who is 3 years old. Although I have always enjoyed scrapbooking, it wasn't until a few of years ago that I fell in love with paper crafting. Recently I've added stitching on cards to my card making adventures.  My other hobbies are reading and baking and spending time with the family. We all enjoy travelling and visiting new places.

Rae Ann

I am an army wife, mom of four (mostly) grown kids, and currently living in Pensacola, FL in the US. I have been stamping for almost 15 years now, but I have been a crafter forever!  I remember making Christmas gifts for my family at a young age and being so excited about doing it all by myself.  Discovering digital stamps and the online crafting world has been an amazing journey!  I am so excited to be joining this team and creating project to inspire you!
