Posted in Creatively Yours Announcements, Creatively Yours News, CY Design Team, Guest Designers at 2:45 pm by alimom4

Let’s shout it from the rooftops! We have a brand new Design Team here at CY! Noella and I are pleased to welcome FIVE talented ladies to  Creatively Yours!

Here they are, along with bios and  photos so you can “put a face to a name!”

1. Ann Seleshanko~ 
Ann

Ann

Hi my name is Ann and I’m very pleased to be a part of the Creatively Yours team. I’ve been married for 10 years and I’m a stay at home mom of two boys almost 6 and 9. They are the subject of most of my layouts. I live in Calgary, Alberta and there is no where else I’d rather be. I love being so close the the mountains. I’m a big history buff and have a degree in History. I’ve been scrapbooking for 10 years and making cards for about 6 years. I’m totally addicted. I love sketches as a starting point for creating. I love how one sketch can take on so many different forms. I’m on the design team at Savvy ‘n’ Sassy and I also sketch/design for SheetLoad of cards . I’m starting to dabble in photography and I’m hoping to take some courses in the fall.   You can find me on my blog here.  My  Gallery is here.

Misty

Hi. My name is Misty Miller. I have been married to my husband, Dan, for 18 years. We have twin boys, Jacob and Caleb, who are 12 years old. We live in Greenfield, Indiana, and I teach students with learning difficulties. When we have the opportunity, we enjoy camping and hiking. I have always been into different crafts – sewing, cross-stitching, and quilting to name a few – since I was younger. I started seriously scrapbooking about 4 years ago when I was invited to a Creative Memories workshop at our church. I enjoyed scrapbooking so much that I kept going back to their monthly workshops. My style has certainly changed over the past 4 years. I look back at my first layouts and laugh. I am looking forward to being a part of the Design Team here at Creatively Yours!

Misty’s Blog is here. Enjoy!

 
 
 
3. Robin Gibson~
Robin

Robin

 
I’ve always been a ‘crafty kind of girl’, but got hooked on Scrapping, as we now know it, about 7 years ago. I DO love my paper and glue! I love to snap photos, and I tend to go crazy, since I have a digital camera, lol. And I’m lucky enough to have a very supportive husband who understands my ‘scrap-craziness’! He even built me a scrap room when we moved into our new house, and that’s what I call a man with his priorities in order. :) 
When I’m not scrapping, I work as a Nurse, and I also teach Nursing Assistant students, which is not only a challenge, but also, lots of fun! I’m married to David, and together we have 3 dogs, who are our children. :) They are a constant source of pictures and joy for me.
While I’ve been scrapping for awhile, I’m new to the business of being on a Design Team. I’m SO excited about this opportunity to help inspire others, meet great friends, and have lots of fun! I’ve also recently been selected to be a member of the Purple Cows Design Team; so excited to get started with that too. 
I don’t know that I have a particular style, per se, so it’s likely you’ll see about anything from me.  But I DO love to work from a good sketch, and we all know that Noella and Ali can crank out some AWESOME inspiration for us to work with! So with that, I’ll just say, THANKS for having me here, and I’m thrilled to be working with this wonderful team! I just can’t wait to get started! I look forward to getting to know all of you better! 
Robin’s blog is here .  Her Flickr Gallery is here . Enjoy!
 
4. Rita Barakat~
Rita (and 'baby girl')

Rita (and 'baby girl')

My name is  Rita Barakat. I have been married to my wonderful hubby for over 18 years. I am a stay at home mother of five beautiful children. We had two then were blessed to adopt three more. (Baby girl is in the pic with me.) I craft because I love it. I have always loved crafts and scrapbooking is a way to incorporate my love of crafts into an art form that others will treasure for future generations. I am so excited to be on the Design Team for Creatively Yours because I love sketches! I love looking at other people’s work, it’s so inspiring!  I can’t wait to see what you come up with! I look forward to getting to working with Ali, Noella, the new DT and getting to know all of you.

Rita’s Blog is here  and her Gallery is here . Enjoy!

 

5. Andi Dickson~

Andi

Andi

 I live in Washington State with my husband and 3 children, Scott (8), Sierra (6) and Venice (1).   Besides homeschooling, scrapbooking is how I choose to spend most of my time. I love the creative challenge, and I enjoy creating beautiful things. I feel like my style is often changing, and it’s usually fairly eclectic. I tend to be more modern and bold, as I don’t usually care for the vintage or romantic look. I also enjoy cooking, gardening and going to the gym! Andi’s blog is here . Her Gallery is here . Enjoy!

Thank you to ALL the scrappers who applied to our Design Team Call… your Sketch #14 entries were really super! We encourage you to apply when the next call goes out! 

We also heartily congratulate Alison Thorne (June’s CY Guest Designer) and Jenifer Cowles (July’s CY Guest Designer). These upcoming guests were chosen through the recent CY-DT Call. 

We have a BIG surprise in store for you regarding the identity of our August CY-Guest Designer, so STAY TUNED! You will NOT want to miss this!  Very soon,  we will be on a hunt for more Guest Designers, and we value a good level of participation when making those choices!  So, please stay with  us here at CY, & share your LO links in the Comments section below so we can go visit your Gallery or blog, leave comments and keep you in mind as we make our next CY-GDT choices!!
 
Continue on with us as we  gain some (and share some) inspiration for the wonderful craft we call “scrapbooking.”
 
Have a super day! AGAIN:  A Warm Welcome to the new CY Design Team!
