Between The Folds Bi-Weekly Challenge Blog would like to introduce you to a couple of our Newest Team Members, Amy Ricker & Brandi Robinson.
Hello, I'm Amy from Paisley's Playhouse. I have been artsy all my life and have been scrapbooking since 1995. I saw a Creative Memories business card at a local shop and went to a crop and my life was never the same after that. I met all sorts of friends that had the same passion for keeping memories and we would go to crops. One day someone had a Stampin' Up! party...oh my goodness! Instant gratification we were all so in love. Not to mention how fast it is to make a card!
Before I knew it someone else had a Close to my Heart party....oh my goodness stamping AND scrapbooking say what???Eventually I became a Stampin' Up! Demo and held classes and loved it but I was not scrapbooking enough. I stopped doing that and focused on scrapbooking I joined a kit club and got my scrap on. Then I ran into Close to my Heart again and thought about how much I missed having classes and so I signed up. I love the people you meet crafting seriously the best group of people ever! After years of going back and forth being a consultant and customer I tend to lose my focus of creating for myself when I am the teacher so I decided I am best suited a customer and I love challenges. I also enjoy design teams because it gives me a little bit of that sisterhood of being a consultant without having to come up with all those great classes.
Last but not least...my why. I live with my significant other and we have a blended family. I call it a modern day Brady Bunch since he has three kids (two sons and a daughter 25, 16, and soon to be 18) and I have three girls (25, 20, and 8) we also have three grandchildren between us. I still have not wrapped my head around that one but let me just tell you how stinking adorable grandbabies are!!! I am really looking forward to being on the Between the Folds team and hopefully I inspire you all with my projects.
I am a scrapbooking addict with no where near enough time for me to scrapbook as much as I would like to!I am married to a super supportive husband and we have 3 beautiful little girls that fill our hearts and my scrapbook pages. I have been scrapbooking for 13 years when I thought it would be cute and fun to do a scrapbook of my husband and my first year of marriage, to look back on how our life was at that time. Now fast forward 13 years and numerous albums later it is a hobby that has been come away of life.
I am also a Close to My Heart consultant and have been with CTMH since May 2008 with one small break when we adopted our daughters. In addition to this design team I am also serving on the design teams for both Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and Heart to Heart Challenges. I currently live in Southwestern Ontario, Canada.
Check us out next week to meet another New Design Team Member.
