Getting to know the new members...

This week I want to let the new girls tell a little about themselves....
This way you all get to know them a little bit better.

The team is a real international group now. And I have to say that reading this little notes about their personal really gave me the idea that I know them a little better.
I sure hope that this goes for you too.
Enjoy the little life stories of:

Hi, I'm Irene. I love Michelle Perkett’s digital stamps and I’m thrilled to be part of this fantastic design team! I live in northern California with my wonderful husband and our "fur children." I write the local and national scrapbooking columns at My mom and I offer free card-making and craft project events through our charity, Scrapbooking Together. I enjoy scrapbooking, card-making, hiking, traveling and everything Disney.

My name is Elenor and I live in UmeƄ, a town in the north of Sweden!
I work with disabled teens at a high school and it's an interesting and fun job!
My free time is mostly spent crafting: making cards, LO's, altering things and
trying out new techniques! =) I've also began to make things with wire, a new hobby of mine! Otherwise I love to go dancing, baking, biking and take photo's!
Looking forward to be one of Michelle's mermaids and getting to know everyone else on the team!

I’m Sharon and I live “Down Under” in South Australia! I’m 40 something LOL and I am married with 2 teenage daughters, 3 dogs and 2 cats! My husband and I own our own Turf Management Business so I work outdoors come rain, hail or shine and more often than not have grease under my fingernails from operating and maintaining machinery!!! But when I’m not working on turf I am in my little office/craft room creating! I love to make absolutely anything including cards, boxes, bags, jewelry, art dolls, mini books and I love all styles including vintage, arty, asian, sassy, modern, traditional, semi cute, collage, altered art etc. etc. Anything goes with me! I also like to sew so I try to incorporate my digi stamps into some form of a fabric creation when I have a chance. I have been stamping/crafting for over 20 years – would you believe I made my own 21st Birthday Invitations and I also used to run my own Wedding Invitation Business from home and via the Internet! I’m looking forward to working with Michelle’s Designs.

Hi!  My name is Jenn and I am sooooo excited to be a member of Michelle's design team!!!  This is my first design team experience and I am just so thrilled to be a part of such a fabulous group!  I've been a fan of Michelle & her artwork for quite some time now.  A little about me - I am 39 years old, my husband Jeremy and I have 2 children.  Our son Trevor is 17, has Asperger's, and graduates from high school this year.  Our daughter Cassidy will be 16 next month - she's in 10th grade.  We live in Worcester, Massachusetts.  I have been stamping and making cards since 2002.  I just signed on as a staff member of Scrapbook News & Review magazine, an exciting work-from-home opportunity that I was thrilled to get!  Some of the other things I enjoy are reading (Stephen King is my favorite author), writing, genealogy, photography, and surfing the Internet.  I love bright things, colors and clothes and jewelry... I like funky, gothic, unique stuff.  I love the peace sign and stuff from the '60's and '70's.  I love to blog, and I try to do so daily.  I'm a little bit addicted to Facebook.  My family and friends mean the world to me - I consider my friends the family I've chosen for myself.  I have a sister who is one year and 3 days younger than me, we grew up like twins and besides my husband, she is my best friend in the world.   I really do consider my husband my best friend, we get along really well and have a lot of fun together.  

I am 54 1/2 years old, and have been stamping for 15 years.
I am happily married with 5 cats and a dog.
Don't be surprised to see a pet hair embellishment on my cards.
I found Michelle Perkett when she designed several stamp sets for The Angel Company.
Her images were so lovely, and charming, with heartfelt sentiments.
When I found she did digital designs...I was converted.
I havent given up my rubber stanps. I do both.
 I appreciate the "soulfullness" of her images, and hope you feel that through my creations 


I'm Wendy P, 53 years young.
I am a New Zealander, living in a small outback town called Tennant Creek
in the Northern Territory of Australia with my husband.
I love creating with anything papercraft related - including ATCs, digital stamps, rubber stamping, cardmaking, scrapbooking, art journalling and altered books/art.
I also enjoy knitting and cross stitch.
I am a Kaszazz consultant, selling craft products by party plan & I teach workshops and demos.
and in my SPARE time, I do minimal housework.


I hope you got to know them a little bit better... during the coming weeks you sure are going to love their work. They are working very hard to prepare all the cards to inspire you all.

Have a great weekend!
