(Owner/ Challenge Administrator)
I live in Bradenton, Florida and my hubby and I both work in the school system. We have the most amazing son a parent could ever ask for, that lives in Seattle, Washington. When I am not making cards or scrapbooking (if there is anything better to do) you can find me either baking, blog surfing, or attending my Pinterest Addict meetings. :) I think I have the most amazing Design Team out there! Not only are they talented, but I am honored
to call them my friends!
My Fabulous Design Team
I am super excited to be joining the Seize the Birthday DT! I live in Bangalore, India, with my parents and my sister. I've always loved crafting, thanks to the enouragement & support from my mother. I started card making a couple of years ago, after seeing some amazing cards in Pinterest, and became addicted - there's been no looking back since! I don't stick to a particular style, since I want to try anything and everything that comes my way, but I am a bit partial to watercoloring, which is my favorite. Its my first DT job ever (thank you Nancy, for inviting me!!), and I am looking forward to have lots fun with all the amazing ladies here, and of course with all the card makers who play along.
Hello, I am Barbara and I am so excited to be asked to join this creative team of ladies at Seize the Birthday. I live in Wisconsin, but I am an official "Snow Bird" as we enjoy winters in Florida. I am married to a man who understands my need to create. Yes, that means that I bring as much of the crafty things to Florida that I can get in the car. Since retiring, I have had time to pursue the paper craft that I love. I enjoyed my 28 years as an Emergency Department nurse, and now we love to travel. I have been to some amazing places. We have 5 children and 7 grand kids and enjoy having them in our lives.
Hi Girl Friends! I am Colleen and live in West Linn, Oregon, just south of Portland. My husband and I just celebrated our 42 anniversary! We have two grown daughters and between them have 3 girls and three boys ranging from 4 - 14! My older daughter and her family live right next door to us! I am so humbled to be asked to serve on this design team with you all...and Lesley, a million thanks for believing in me!
Hey there! I'm Glenda and I'm really happy to be here at Seize the Birthday. First off, I must confess, I am a big geek! Science geek and crafty geek! I’m a marine geologist by day and a stamping addict by night. I have a great group of crafty friends here, there and everywhere who keep me inspired, entertained and enabled. I’m also lucky to have a supportive hubby, who never asks how much I spend on my addiction, I mean, hobby! My paper crafting style is generally clean and simple, although I do stray off in random directions sometimes. Being on this team is perfect for me as I love playing with sketches (and have a hard time coming up with my own). I also love to play with funky patterned papers and fun & bold colour combinations.
Hi my name is JoAnn and I am so excited to be joining the Seize The Birthday Design Team. I have been doing crafts of some sort for most of my life, hence the title of my blog. I started scrapbooking and cardmaking in 1998 and it is definitely addictive. I enjoy making cards for family and friends. We live in Central Florida about 60 miles from the west coast. My husband and I are both original Floridians and moved back here after he retired from the military. We are both retired now and I enjoy my crafts and spending time with the grandchildren.
Hi! My name is Jodene and I live in Perth, Australia and I am thrilled to be joining the Seize The Birthday Design Team! I've been stamping for 15 years and have been known to do a few scrapbook pages too. I have been married for almost 19 years, we have two gorgeous daughters who are 15 and 17 and two dogs and one cat complete our little family. When I'm not in my craft room, I'm either playing chauffeur to the kids, at work (as a part time Office Manager) or volunteering at the RSPCA animal shelter one day a week.
I’m Patti from stationeryStyles blog. I am mom to 4, grandma to 6 and wife to the best person I’ve ever known. We recently moved to the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota and totally love it!!
Since 2010 I have been designer and co-founder of a wonderful little cottage business that makes scarves called neckStyles™. I love beautiful fabric almost as much as I love beautiful paper. My DH and I also enjoy travel, photography, cooking and eating! I’ve been creating cards for about 19 years and have enjoyed teaching others, in my home as well as in the classroom. I am continually inspired by the talented team at Seize The Birthday Challenge Blog, as well as the amazing cards displayed in the gallery. I appreciate the friendships and inspiration this of this great Blogland Community.
Hi everyone! My name is Sandy and I live on beautiful Long Island, New York, which is known for its gorgeous parks and beaches. I'm a wife and mom to three adult kids and one fur child, a rescued kitty named Oliver. I've always loved crafts of all sorts by I am totally addicted to paper crafting. I love blogging and participating in challenges and feel so fortunate to have made so many amazing friends along the way who share the same passion.

Hi, I’m Shirley and I’m thrilled to be joining this talented team at Seize The Birthday because I love making birthday cards! I’ve been crafting since I was a child and will try just about anything, but stamping is my obsession. We live in a beautiful village in north-west England with our basket-case of a rescue dog (a surprise present from our two grown-up sons who have both de-camped to Australia). We’ve both retired early,
DH does all the cooking and I get to play all day. Win/win!
Hi, I'm TaeEun from rainbowinnovember. I'm so excited to be part of the Seize the Birthday Design team. I'm originally from South Korea, now living in New Jersey, USA with my supportive family since 2013, when I moved from Germany. I ran across card making on Youtube last year. After watching many of video tutorials, I started making my own cards. And it has become a passion. I can't say I have my own card style yet, but I feel comfortable when I'm making a CAS card or coloring some beautiful flowers on my cards:)! I'm looking forward to having lots of fun and inspirational experience with such talented DT ladies and challenge participants!
Hi all, my name is Vicki Dutcher. I have been stamping for a lot of years at this point. It all started with a SU party and has grown from there. I have been a designer for many companies and currently am designing for 3. I love stamping - it is the best hobby out there! I also work at Starbucks part time. I love my job, I love my hobby - can't get any better then that except.... being on this fun Team with Nancy and the girls. Thanks so much for having me! I'm looking forward to this new gig.
