JUST THREE MORE SLEEPS...

It's time to reveal the newest, very talented creatives joining our team 
and I could be happier...

I would like to say a really really big THANK YOU to everyone that applied for the Design Team. You really made my job hard lol!


First off we're introducing... 
Tracey
Hi everyone Tracey here Mom of Three and avid Crafter. I love working with all kinds of media from paper to fabric, pencil to paint and love to mix it up. I have a passion for Mother Nature and the influences she gives, helping me to study those finer details and introduce them into my artwork. 
I am overjoyed at the opportunity of being part of the Paperbabe Design Team, having used and adored Kim's work and products for many years now. I'm delighted to be sharing the Paperbabe magic with you all.. 
Creative Hugs and Warm Wishes Tracey xx

Next we welcome 
Aly
My name is Alysha Sheridan and I am 44 years old. I have been crafting for 15 years, it all started when I went on a camping holiday and visited a craft fair, I bought a Sizzix Sidekick, some dies and stamps and ink and that was it I was hooked.

I have done card making and 3d projects, sewing, knitting, crochet and cross-stitch, encaustic art, melt pot art to name but a few of the crafty things I love. I have only recently found journaling and mixed media, I call it “messy crafting” and I love it I don’t think there is a day goes by I don’t have inky fingers!

I have 3 daughters and a very patient hubby he buys all my crafty goodies so I have to be nice to him lol, he is wonderful and has been known to join me a time or two when I have been crafting. Daughters are all grown and not crafty now though they were when they were young. I have all but retired now as I am a carer so I have plenty of time to craft.

I am honoured to be a part of Paperbabe Stamps Design Team and look forward to crafting alongside Kim and the girls xxx
