VERY VERY EXCITING NEWS!


I had only ever dreamed that my path would lead me here.
NEVER in a million years would I dreamed to have such an amazing group of woman would join me on my crazy, quirky journey! 
Sharing our art together! Yes..this is a pinch me moment! 
Introducing...
I am positive you will love these girls as much as I do if you don't already!
Alphabetically by last name:
Lynne Forsythe
Hi Everyone.....my name is Lynne and I am from a small town in Northern New Hampshire and have been creating since I was a child.  I discovered paper crafting about 10 years ago.....and have never looked back! I love trying new things, then sharing them with anyone who will listen. I like to remind people that it’s good to step outside of one’s creative box.” I must say, I am known for my love of color, and will color anything I can get her hands on. If I was to classify my style, it would be Distress meets Shabby and ALWAYS has flowers! 
I cannot even begin to tell you how honored and humbled I am that these fabulous women will join me on this crazy journey!  They are all amazingly gifted artists who have inspired me over the years. 
The Internet is such a fabulous place to discover such talent and make friendships that you would ordinarily not have the opportunity to do.  This is the way I feel about this girls!
Lynne is also a Certified Ranger Ink and Embossing instructor, on the Petaloo Design Team and part of the Canvas Corp Creative Crew.  Her blog is lynneforsythe.blogspot.com

Tonya Gibbs
Hi everyone, Tonya Gibbs here a.k.a.  Psychomoms  (yes you read that right)  a bit unorthodox I know. But once upon a time I was giving this name because I adopted nearly every child I met taking photos like crazy of all my kid's friends and sharing them everywhere.  It kind of stuck, and fit my personality. You can read all about it over on my blog.  All those photographs led to a memory keeping passion, and soon an all things paper crafting passion. I would now consider myself a versatile artist, who loves experimenting with new techniques, styles, and mediums. Because of this, I would consider my personal style to be eclectic. I can do it all - from shabby chic to grunge,  digital to paper crafting, mixed media to altered art. I've recently fallen head over heals in love with watercolor and hand lettering.  I enjoy the challenge of experimenting outside my comfort zone, then teaching others as I learn easy tricks for mastering these new mediums. I have an active YouTube channel and blog where I share tons of projects that are sure to inspire you. I also share a free live class once a month on Ustream. Look for details for the 2016 schedule on my blog soon. My design resume includes designing for brands like Limor Webber Designs, Faber Castel Design Memory Craft®, Marion Smith Designs, Die-Namites Dies, guest blogging for Teresa Collins Designs, 7Gypsies, Tattered Angels, and Canvas Corp.  You can see my work over on my blog athttp://www.psychomoms.com  where you can also find links to all my other social media outlets. 

Bobbi Smith
My name is Bobbi Smith. I’ve been a crafter all my life, however I really found my niche in paper-crafting about 20 years ago, when my children were young and have never looked back. I love all forms of Art, but really gravitate towards vintage, distress and grunge styles. I live in Illinois and love to hunt for vintage finds, when I’m not paper crafting! You can find Bobbi here on here blog

Make sure to follow all these amazingly talented women on their social media as well! You will be glad you did! wink. 

We will be sharing some fabulous project featuring Yvonne Blair Designs Stamps with Impressions Obsession very soon. 
As well as some Inky Art Journal love, and Journal Buddy tool too! 

2016 looks to be an amazing year! I cannot wait to get this party started. 
I will be sharing my new stamps right from the CHA floor via Facebook and Instagram while at CHA!
 I will also try and do a periscope for those of you who follow there. 

Thanks so much for all your support and words of love over the years! 
It truly means the world to me! Sharing my art and quirky side is one of the greatest blessings I have. 
I can tell you that dreams do come true! That is you work hard you can do anything you set your mind to do! Here's to a GREAT 2016! 
Cheers to 2016! See you soon!
