Our Design Team

Sue Eldred

I am a DIY, paper crafting, picture taking, creative kind of gal.  (also kind of an organizing nut)  I love to find good junk to re-purpose into great treasures.

Nadine Carlier

Hello, my name is Nadine Carlier and I have been crafting for about 19 years now with scrapbooking, handmade cards, mixed media, and altered art projects being my favorite things to create although I have done and love all things crafty. Well, almost all things crafty, I am not a fan of sewing. I would say my style would best be described as eclectic with a mixed media twist. Almost all my craft projects have some kind of ink, mist, paste or paint on them. I love getting messy, trying new techniques, making video tutorials, inspiring others and being inspired. There are so many talented and inspiring crafters out there and I am happy to be a part of this fabulous crafty community.

Morena’s passion is using thrifted and inexpensive finds to craft designer-inspired creations, and she excels in creating colorful, bold pieces. She’s dubbed her styleretro-bold. As a former teacher, her blog is like her virtual classroom.

Susie Bentz

I am a crafter at heart and have been creating all my life! I started scrapbooking in 2007 when I created a wedding album as a gift and it has truly become my passion. It is my creative outlet and my therapy! I enjoy all kinds of paper crafting – making cards, exploding boxes and altered items for gifts and home decor. My favorite thing to do right now is to create mixed media canvases and explore art journaling. Most recently I have been playing with gel printing, stencils, and texture tools – I may be an addict!
My style tends to be classic with a modern twist. I like layers and texture. I am a huge fan of die cuts and chipboard and paint and ink and stencils and bling and resin and washi tape and wood veneer and flowers and ribbon and charms…okay – I like to play with everything!
I have found so many wonderful friends through scrapbooking! One of my favorite quotes is from Leo Buscaglia, “Your talent is God’s gift to you; what you do with it is your gift to God.”
