Time to meet our Featured Designer for January!

Well, you've met all the fab ladies who make up our first Design Team here at Colour Me...!, but there is still one more person to meet!

Each month, we will have a Featured Designer join us! For the month of January, you'll have the pleasure of checking out some of the work from the fabulous...

Lesley Croghan

Hi! My name is Lesley and I am a primary teacher. I love making crafts and getting inky with stamps. I began card making when I was 7 years old; creating cards for family members by folding a paper in half and drawing the design on my own. I loved it. Now I stamp my images! Coloring makes me happy and I am always playing with paper, inks, stamps and stickers... which is why I called my blog "Always Playing with Paper". I began blogging in 2009 and I have had the opportunity to design for and to create a few of my own challenge blogs since then. I am happily married to a big sweetie of a fella, who understands my obsession with paper! When we go traveling, he asks me for the addresses to the craft stores in advance so he can pre-plan the best route!

I am absolutely delighted to be guest designing for Colour Me. Thank you to Hayley and Tara for this lovely opportunity. 

In just a little over a week, we'll go live with our first challenge. But there's still more fun in store over here at Colour Me...! before that happens ;)

Meet some more of the team...!

We've got two more talented ladies to introduce you to today!

Rosemary Dennis
Hi everyone!  I’m Rosemary and I live in the beautiful state of Washington with my  husband and two boys.   I have been crafting in some form or another for longer  than I care to remember, lol!  But I started paper crafting serious in around 2008  when I found the online world of paper crafting.  I did a lot of “lurking” before I  started playing along in challenges and starting my blog in May of 2009.  Over the  last few years I have served on several different design teams and have been  fortunate enough to have my work published in many different paper crafting  publications.  

I’m super excited to be a part of the very first “Colour Me” design  team! 

Sam Simpson
Hi my name is Sam, I live with my fantastic partner Jono and my mad cat, Patch, who thinks he's a dog. We live in the quaint, quirky and amazing ye old City of York - UK. I guess it should come as no surprise to you that I love card making. I started crafting about six years ago, when I fell in love with paper and stamps and I'm not afraid to say that it is a bit of an obsession really. I am also a bit of a photography geek and will mostly be seen with camera in hand if I'm not making cards. 

I am super excited to be a part of this new venture at Colour Me...! I can't wait to work with such a fab group of women!

This will round out our Design Team for the next 6 months - Please stop by and say hello to everyone!

... BUT WAIT! There's more...

Each month we'll be featuring a guest designer. Be sure to check back next Sunday (the 22nd) to find out who will be joining us for the month of January.

Keeping the introductions coming...!

Now that you've met Hayley and Tara, it's time to say hello to two more talented ladies!

Brenda Hofstatter

Hi! My name is Brenda and I live in Ottawa, Canada and I’ve been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for two years. I love it and am totally addicted to paper crafting! My husband and I have been happily married for 15 years and have two fabulous kids.  I am a stay-­at-­home mom and when I'm not crafting or volunteering at the kids' school, you can find me in the kitchen indulging in my other passion, cake decorating. 

I am super excited to be joining the Colour Me…! Design Team and am looking forward to sharing this journey with all of you. 

Katie Melhus

Hi! I'm Katie and I have been making cards since 2008. Having my daughter inspired me to try my hand at scrapbooking and soon it turned into a full-blown paper crafting obsession (we all know how easily that happens, right?) Luckily my wonderful husband Ken is super supportive of my "habit". We live in a small town in Washington state with our 3 year old little Ansley, and our spoiled cat, The Bean. I work in a medical laboratory, so after being in the lab I love to get creative and my favourite way to do that is with stamps, ink, and paper. I started blogging in 2012 and I'm amazed at the amount of talent and support for others that is out there, what an awesome community!

I'm super excited to be a part of this brand new challenge and I can't wait to see what everyone out there creates! Keep it crafty!

Want a little peek at what we're all about? We'll have a little teaser for you on Wednesday, so be sure to check back ;)

Time to introduce...!

This is it! It's time to meet the Design Team for Colour Me...! We'll start by introducing you to our two co-creators:

Hayley Kew

Hello! My name is Hayley and I live in Ontario, Canada. I have been paper crating for about 10 years now and 3 years ago I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I have made some fabulous friends over the past 3 years sharing what I love with people through my classes and blogging. I am the very proud mother of a 4 year old boy and a 1 year old girl and have a beyond amazing husband who helps me to do the things in life which make me happy! When I'm not spending time with my beautiful family or tucked away in my craft room, I have the privilege of being a birth and postpartum doula. 

Tara and I have been talking about creating a blog for some time now. I am so very excited that we have finally had a chance to put our ideas in motion! Looking forward to the FABulous projects you will be sharing with us as we "get to know" each other along the way!

Tara Bourgoin

Hello! My name is Tara and I live in Ontario, Canada. I've been crafting for as long as I can remember, but only recently discovered Stampin' Up! (about 3 years ago). I love anything to do with colours and design, and I love sharing with and learning from all the talented people I come across on this journey. I have two young boys (2 and 5) and a wonderfully supportive husband. When I'm not crafting, I'm working my "day job" as a Product Manager, or spending time with my fabulous family.

I am SO thrilled to be co-creating Colour Me...! with my dear friend Hayley and can't wait to meet many more friends and be inspired by all of you! Welcome!!

The fun is just beginning - be sure to visit us again on Sunday to meet two more lovely ladies.
