As promised, we have some exciting news to share. Besides the original three design team members - Gini Cagle, Heather Drews Carpenter and Patti Hamil, we are happy to announce two new additions to our team!
My name is Gloria Stengel and I live in Oceanside, CA. I’ve been a CA resident since March 2005, after living in five other states. I live with my husband Matt and our three children, Nathan (21), Laura (17), and Jonah (12). I homeschool my two youngest children, but my oldest son has graduated and now attends college full-time. We also have a brand new kitten named Milo. He was born August 2012, and he is making my life crazy, but he's so cute that I am willing to sacrifice the occasional ribbon or button!
I have been hooked on paper crafts all of my life. In 1990, I discovered rubber stamping and in 1996, I stumbled across "modern" scrapbooking. I love all aspects of paper crafting: card making, scrapbooking, mini albums, altered art, up-cycling, you name it! I am happiest when I am making a mess! It's the cleaning up part that I don't care for!
I have been on a number of design teams over the past few years, including current terms with Graphic 45 and Hampton Art Stamps. I was also part of the Spellbinders 2011-2012 team. I also accept various guest design spots and work with online stores from time to time, including Really Reasonable Ribbon and CropStop. I recently began writing blog articles for Crafts 'n things Magazine, which allows me to share tutorials, favorite products, and advice on paper crafting. The design teams I work with are very diverse, which is an amazing thing for me considering that I love all sorts of art mediums.
The two "holes" in my design team resume is not being part of a cardstock or adhesive design team. Now, I am half-way to perfection. I am pleased to join the Worldwin team!
I have also been published in several magazines. Plus I have a blog, a Facebook Fan Page, and a YouTube channel in order to share my creative work. Visit my blog, Scraps of Life:
Hi! I am Katrina and I live in Midwest USA! I am currently owned by four Cardigan Welsh Corgis, who appear in my layouts from time to time (or A LOT of the time)! I'm a full-time office worker by day and crafter by night. I've discovered as an adult that I love to create and craft. I was never the artsy type while growing up, unless you count cutting my doll's hair. I have been scrapbooking since February 2009, when I decided to make a mini album for a friend. I discovered that I loved it! Well, let's just say after that I went nuts with the paper, scissors, and glue. I love color, the more the better. To define my style is hard, as I do what makes me happy. If I had to I would say it's Shabby Chic, with a kick of fun. I like to scrap everyday life and things. I am excited and proud to be a part of WorldWin Papers and this amazing adventure. You can check my blog here: Katrina's Blog
