Happy Monday!

This week we have a fun week in store for you….we are introducing our NEW 2011 Design Team.  For this special week, each Design Team member created a layout all about themselves.  We will be updating galleries daily with new projects from the team so make sure you check their galleries often!

First up is Andrea Amu.  Here is a little bit about Andrea in her own words:

Hello! My name is Andrea Amu and I am born and raised in Pennsylvania where I live with my fun-loving hubby of nearly 11 years. Scrapbooking has been one of my biggest obsessions since 1997 and most recently I’ve seemed to catch a card making bug too! When I’m not busy being crafty, I can also be found working part-time as a substitute Preschool teacher. I find enjoyment in shopping at craft and antique/junque shops, and collecting Old World stoneware and unique pieces of silver and gemstone jewelry. Currently, I am also serving my third year as a designer for and I’ve been fortunate to have had my designs published in Memory Makers publications, Northridge Publishing Media’s CARDS and Cricut magazines, Paper Crafts, The Bug magazine, Pinecone Press, and Blue Media and Quarry books. I am really excited to now be a part of the Core’dinations Design Team and I look forward to many inspirational experiences along the way!  Check out her gallery here at Core and her personal blog here.

Love the Teresa Collins Core Amour on here and how Andrea printed her photo directly on the Core.

And next we have April Derrick. Here is a little bit about April in her own words:

My name is April Derrick and I am a Stay-At-Home Mother and Scrapbook Artist. I live in Arkansas, with my husband Scott, my daughter Charlie, and my sons Memphis and Castor. I have a love for all things crafty, and a passion for designing scrapbook layouts & mixed media art. I love to paint, draw, & distress…anything where I can get my hands messy! Documenting my memories in an artful way is extremely important to me and I always strive to inspire others whenever I can. I enjoy teaching others new techniques and I have been fortunate enough to host an annual scrapbooking /art retreat for the last six years on Petit Jean Mountain. I’m addicted to my camera, my scrap tunes, my sewing machine, all of my art mediums, and of course Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock. In my opinion, Core’dinations Cardstock just plain rocks and I am honored to be part of the Design Team! Check out her gallery here at Core and her personal blog here. April has a way with inks and mists for sure!!! Looks fabulous on some Cosmo Cricket Woodgrain.

    Great layouts today. I like how Andrea printed her photo right on the coredination paper and April’s inking effect over the woodgrain is so cool looking.

  4. Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any helpful hints for first-time blog writers?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.
