Introducing My Creative Time Design Team!

Hello everybody & welcome to My Creative Time! I wanted to introduce "My Creative Time's" Very 1st Design Team!!! I am LITERALLY over the moon right now! I still can't believe that I actually have "MY" own Design Team! I am SOOO blessed to have this FABULOUSLY "TALENTED" team joining me. I have ALWAYS ADMIRED every single one of my team member's work & I am Proud to say that they are "MY" Troops!;) Okay, here they go~ after you read a little about them, you can click on their names to visit their blogs! You are SOOO in for a treat my friends! So don't forget to follow them because you don't want to miss a thing!!! ;)
My name is Nikki. I started scrappin' in 1998 after my Nana gave me an album and some Creative Memories stuff for Christmas. I was totally reluctant at first, but soon got hooked! It turned out that I would soon be putting my new found love for paper crafting to use as I got married less than a year later. {Yes, I was a child bride of 19 HAHA} I tend to make WAY more cards than scrapbook pages these days because I just like the instant gratification of it. I am a 100% Cricut junkie, and I have NO idea how I survived before having my sweet Gypsy! Well, that's me in a tiny little nut shell. I am SO STOKED to be on this exciting creative journey with Emma! Thanks, Emma!!! ♥ Nikki


My name is Abby Grimaldi and I am addicted to all scrapbooking things! I started this hobby many years ago but it has become a little more than a hobby now. I have been married for 15 and we have 4 kids! I taught high school Spanish for 8 years and decided to stay at home with the kids for a little while. My Creative Time has been a source of inspiration for me since day 1. I am honored to be part of this awesome team!


I have a passion for paper arts specially Paper Quilling. I discovered this form of art back in 1998 thru a crafts magazine. Since then I've been hooked.. My work has been published in two Quilling magazines from South America and The 2007 Quilling Accord Calendar.   I am a proud Member of the North American Quilling Guild and working towards my Accreditation for this form of Art.  I also love to create with my Cricut, Sizzix, Cuttlebug, rubber stamps  etc..  All my creations in one way or another are embellished with Quilling.  I’ve also been married for 12 years to a supportive husband and I am a proud mommy to three little ones that keep me very busy.  I work as a full time Administrative Assistant for an Early and Head Start Programs and live in Queens New York. 

Hi, my name is Katie Jones, and I am thrilled to be part of My Creative Time's Design Team! I live in the San Francisco Bay Area with my wonderful 15-year-old son, Eric. Although I am a busy teacher of a 2/3 combination class in a public elementary school, I try to carve out as much time as possible for crafting.

I purchased my first Cricut Expression during the summer of 2009, when my sisters and I decided to make a scrapbook for my dad's 70th birthday. I quickly became hooked, and began experimenting with card making, along with scrapbooking. I now also have a Gypsy and an Imagine, and it's not often that a day goes by without my working with at least one of them! I have been following Emma's blog for quite a while now, and I'm always blown away by her designs. I'm so excited to start working with her stamps!


Hi! My name is Glora Beardall. I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful children. My family is the joy of my life. I have been paper-crafting for as long as I can remember. I got my Cricut a few years ago and loved it. Later I was introduced to Peachy Keen Stamps, the handy Cricut Gypsy and of course Emma and her blog. I love to get new ideas and learn new techniques from all of you. Thanks for your friendship and the inspiration you bring to me and others.


Hi! My name is Leanne and I am a 43 year old stay at home mom. I've been married to my best friend for 19 years and we have one 16 year old son Kyle. I discovered this craft in 2007 and there has been no turning back since! I love scrapbooking and making cards or anything that is related to paper!!

I've been married to my husband for 27 years. We have 3 children, well they are not little anymore my oldest just turned 27 on New Years Day, my middle son is 24, my daughter is 15. I have 2 Yorkies Isabelle & Gabby. I enjoy crafting and photography I work full time . I make time to craft after I get off from work or on the weekends. My husband supports my hobbies he put my cabinets in for me in my craft room he is very handy.


I started crafting about 6 or 7 years ago a coworker who is now a very good friend of mine, introduced me into scrapbooking and I was hooked. I did not realize how expensive it could be. The funny thing is sometimes we enable each other after we hear about each other shopping sprees we do over the weekend. I started my blog last year and I am glad I did I have met wonderful and talented people. I am able to share what I made.

I am so excited to be part of Emma's design team and look forward to sharing what I make with you.

Thank You for this wonderful opportunity

I started crafting (with the cricut) just last febuary! I got it to make bookmarks! but, I found my favorite thing cards! I've made cards since....
**********************************************************

Okay everybody, this is "MY" AWESOME team! You are ALL in for some GREAT projects from "Team Emma"!! lol..... Have a FABULOUS day & thank you for stopping by!;)
