Welcome to our next Design Team at Dynamic Duos!

We are excited to announce our next design team at Dynamic Duos. These ladies are all so talented and they are looking forward to sharing their design team creations with you. They will be with us for the next six months, and I tell you, that time just flies by! So let's introduce them to you! Anne Marie and I are thrilled to be working with them!

Hi! My name is Allyson Andersen. I am a mid-life girl who lives in a quiet little Utah suburb, surrounded by farmland. My husband and I married in 2001, and we are homeschooling parents of 3 young children. I began basic card making in 2003 when introduced to it during a local church women’s group meeting. I’ve taken up the hobby more seriously (i.e. spending a ridiculous amount of money on supplies!) only in the last 5 years. I’ve been blogging about my creative pursuits since January 2011, and I am very happy to be a part of the Dynamic Duos Design Team!

Hi everyone, my name is Chris and I live in Adelaide, Australia, with my 6 year old son, Jamie, who is homeschooled, and my two beautiful cats, Millie and Catey, who love to help me stamp. I have been "crafty" all of my life, I remember my Mum teaching me to knit when I was 5 years old, and I have been into all sorts of crafts ever since.  A friend took me a Stampin' Up! party for my birthday in 2008 and I haven't stopped stamping since!  I joined Stampin' Up! as a demonstrator not long after even though I was still very new to stamping, and I still love it.  I also love scrapbooking, but don't do enough of it, there are just not enough hours in the day! I also run a business from home as an NLP Master Practitioner and Hypnotherapist, something that I love to do. I am so happy and excited to be part of this team with so many talented ladies, and I really look forward to getting to know you all.

Hi my name is Vicki Burdick and I live in Webb City, Missouri. I am a wife and mother, I  have been a crafter all my life, I  was introduced to paper crafting several years ago when I attended a Stampin Up workshop with a friend. I became quite addicted. I am thrilled to be apart of the Dynamic Duos team! 

Hi, my name is Karen Day and I live in Richmond Hill, Ontario...just north of Toronto.  I'm a retired clothing designer, now a stay at home Mom, and part-time home stager with a 17yr old son and a 15yr old daughter.  I've enjoyed crafts all my life, and bought my first rubber stamp as a teenager - so I pretty much have stamped ever since.  I scrapbook when I can, and love to knit, but you'll usually find me off in my craft room making a card or two...  I'm thrilled to be a part of the Dynamic Duos design team!

Hi, my name is Deanna Dean. I was born and raised in a small town in Southern Oregon and still call it home. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 22 years. We have one daughter and soon we will be adding a son-in-law to the family. I've been crafting as long as I can remember. My mom and I were always making something. I starting scrapbooking several years ago and that led to card making and I've never looked back. I'm so excited to be part of the Dynamic Duos Design Team.

Hey there!  My name is Jenny Engelke and I enjoy life in a small, tight-knit community in Northeastern Montana.  I am married to a wonderful man who is very tolerant to my love of card-making (and the money I spend on it!) and we have three handsome boys ages 16, 14, and 7.  I am a stay-at-home mom, but with that comes all kinds of side jobs and volunteering, so I stay very, very busy.  I started making cards when I was pregnant with my oldest son.  I also scrapbooked for several years, but that has taken somewhat of a backseat to card-making.  I've always been crafty, but this is a medium I really, really enjoy.  I can't tell you how excited I am to be a part of  the Dynamic Duos Design Team! 

Hi everyone!  My name is Bobbie Trost and I live an hour north of Minneapolis, Minnesota.  My husband and I just celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary, and we have two girls ages 8 and 6 who are the subjects of my creativity.  While I'll make a card when I need one, my go-to project is a scrapbook page.  After years of collecting pretty paper and embellishments, I'm finally getting to filling up books.  I'm very excited to be joining Dynamic Duos and I look forward to the challenge of creating great layouts using the challenge colors.

Hi! I'm Erna Logtenberg, from the Netherlands. I'm married and we have a daughter who is almost 13 years old. About ten years ago I started making cards. After a few years I got my first stamps and since then I'm addicted to stamping and love to make cards even more. I like to play with sketch challenges and color challenges at different challenge blogs. I'm very honored to be a team member of the Dynamic Duos design team!

Hiya! My name is Amy White and I live in Bristol, England. I come from a creative family and grew up loving pencils and paper and all things arty. I was introduced to card making through a class I attended around 8 years ago and was instantly hooked. A couple of years later I was introduced to Stampin Up - I went along to a taster session and ended up becoming a demonstrator. I've met so many great people through this hobby and one of my favourite things to do is teaching classes in my home, where I have a great group of ladies come to chat, make cards and have lots of fun. I trained as a teacher and currently work in an education position in our city's Cathedral. I have a long-suffering husband who puts up with paper and stamps all over the place as well as five kitties who enjoy sitting right in the middle of my craft table and playing with scrap bits of paper! I love playing along with challenges and am so excited to be joining the Dynamic Duos design team!

Welcome to the team ladies! We will be back here tomorrow with a festive colour combo that will be sure to get you in the spirit!
