Our first member is   Sher Brown

Hi ladies, my name is Sher. I live in the USA with my husband and my two sons. My sons are now 20 and 23, and I can happily say they have been the biggest blessings in my life other than my husband of 23 years. I've always been a stay at home mom/housewife and its been a joy. I love to scrapbook, stamp, and to make cards, and other various crafts. Lately I have been enjoying mixed media.
My blog is: www.patternsbysher.blogspot.com

Next up we have     Sandy Hentzel

Sandy Hentzel

Hi Friends, Sandy here in "sunny" Ohio. I am married and a working (full-time) mom of three, and I started scrapbooking 10 years ago with card thrown in the mix about 3 years ago. It is my stress reliever after I get the kiddos to bed. I love the sense of accomplishment when I look at the finished product and making gifts for others.

I am excited to be a part of Sunsational Stamps inaugural design team. I just started using digital stamps this year, an am addicted. But, I can't scrap without my die cutting machines, Gypsy, Cuttlebug, and I am a paper addict/ makings of a scrapbook hoarder. I scrapbook almost daily and love, love, love learning new techniques and tutorials. That's about it. I am a simple crafter that likes to have fun with my family, friends and scrapbook bloggies. I am looking forward to inspiring you with projects, showcasing the wonderful images from Sunsational Stamps.

You can also find me at The Scrapbook Blessings Club which is my tutorial blog along with my personal blog at A Working Mom's Joy and You Tube channel at http://www.youtube.com/amomsjoy3.

Next  we have  Kimberly Pate

My name is Kimberly, and I am a scrapper, love to color and paint, crochet, knit, and my new love, play with vinyl!! . . . a jack of all, master at none. I live where is warm and sunny and love every last second of my time scrapping and helping other people. I am mostly a card maker, but have been known to throw in a scrap book page every now and again, and I am learning to do altered items of all kinds. One really does not know or what I will get myself into these days.   

Lets welcome    Edwina Brown

Hi, I am Edwina Brown. I have been a crafter of some kind since my first box of crayons. I love all kinds of art and crafts. I started scrapbooking in 2003. I then started making cards. In 2010 or 2011 I started using digis. I have been hooked every since then. Of course I had to get Copics to use on my images whether stamped or digital. 
I live in New Jersey, but was born in Kentucky. I am a true southerner. I have 3 brothers who made life very interesting when we were kids. Life is a challenge, one I try to meet everyday. My favorite saying is "Well,That's Life!" 

Next up is   Jennifer Rose Lepard 

 My name is Jennifer Rose Lepard. I am married and have  two wonderful kids who bark. My passion is card making, mini albums and making scrapbooks as a way to preserve memories that can last a lifetime! I'm so excited to be apart of your design team and hope that i will grow as a crafter because of it . I love paper piecing and I'm new to the digital stamp world but love it

Our next member is  Marji Reineke Franklin

Hi, I'm Marji, I am a stay at home Mom to a rambunctious and stubborn 4 year old, crafting is my sanity, my escape and what keeps me grounded. My daughter likes to craft with me which gives me more time to play since I can give her some supplies and she goes to town. I have been crafting my whole life, I found stamps about 20 years ago, paper piecing about 4 years ago along with digital stamps. My first love is still stamps even though I don't use them as often as I used to. I'm thrilled to show you what I can come up with!

Last but not least welcome  Carolyn M Akkerman Smith

Hi everybody, I am Carolyn M. Akkerman Smith from rainy Alabama. I am a retired grandmother of 5 girls, 1 boy, and a great-grandmother of 1 boy and 1 girl. I enjoy scrapping for the grand kids; and now starting on the great grand kids. It's my stress outlet, plus I enjoy it. I started stamping back in 2005 with attending a Stampin Up party and became hooked. Gradually going towards acrylic stamps as well as digital stamps. I love learning new techniques in stamping and scrapping. I also work with mini-albums, presently creating an envelope mini-album for my 13 year granddaughter from baby to 13 yrs. When I am not creating cards, etc., I will work on a quilt for a granddaughter getting married in 2014, and visiting with my son and family returning from Korea where he had been stationed for 2 1/2 years...(yay, can't wait for them to return home.) Thank you and will have fun here.
