The Cut Shoppe Design Team Announcement!

Today is a very exciting day!  I am so happy to announce the first ever Design Team for The Cut Shoppe!  Thank you to everyone who applied for the Call!  It was very difficult to choose from all of the talented Designers who submitted.  So without further ado, let's meet the new Team!

Here's a little bit more info., about each of our Designers!

My name is Allie and I am 25 years old. I have been married to the most wonderful man since August 2012 and we adopted a sweet blind dog last year. I love them so much and they are my most favorite thing to scrap about! When I’m not scrapbooking you might find me at Starbucks, making delicious cups of coffee for all. I also enjoy reading and watching British TV: Dr. Who, Sherlock, Downton Abbey, Orphan Black—I can't get enough!

I am Amy Coose, and I live in Northern VA with my three sweet kiddos and my hubby.  I have been scrapbooking since my oldest was born, so that's almost 15 years, and I still love it more than ever!  Parenting two teens and a toddler keeps me quite busy, but when I'm not parenting or scrapbooking, you can find me at the hockey rink.  We are a serious hockey family.  I am thrilled to be a part of this wonderful team and look forward to using Ashley's amazing cut files.

My name is Annelie Maddock, and I’m very excited to be on The Cut Shoppe DT!  I was born in Sweden, but have lived in Auckland, New Zealand, since 2003.  I’m married to Kelly and mum to two gorgeous girls; Tova and Elsa.  In my day job I am an executive PA, but I also run the monthly kit club Crazy Monday Kits—so I’m keeping myself busy.  I’m also a cancer survivor and try to live everyday to the fullest.  My passion for scrapbooking started in 2006, and since then I have created something just about everyday. I go crazy if I don’t!  I love bright colours, I am addicted to alphabets, and I like adding little random bits to my pages.  It’s important for me to scrap everyday stories, but I also scrap my favorite photos again and again just because they’re gorgeous!

I'm a 32 year old single girl from The Netherlands, working a full time job as a management assistant at an insurance company. I've been scrapbooking since 2004 and addicted ever since. My layouts are mostly about my travels, my niece and nephew and my daily life. Besides scrapbooking I have a passion for traveling and I love to spend good quality time with my family and friends. I'm also addicted to the beach (which I live very close by), you can feed me sushi on a daily base, Red Bull is my morning coffee and I never wear matching socks.

Hi there, my name is Michelle Gallant, I live in NB Canada with my hubby and two beautiful kids. I've been scrapping for about 7 years. I went to a class with a friend and it was love at first cut! Scrapbooking has given me a way to let my creative side go wild! LOL I love to play with inks and stamps but I don't like to get my hands dirty (this can sometimes be tricky)!   I sometimes even scrap on my lunch hour (blush).  Who needs food when you can scrap right???  Scrapbooking has also led me to a love of photography!

I stay at home with my boys and I also have my own Jamberry business! I am pretty much not happy unless I'm running full tilt all the time! LOL!
