Helle Bilde Müller

Hi 🙂 My name is Helle and I’m from Denmark. I live with my life companion of 30 years and our two boys. Since my accident in 2007, I can’t work anymore but luckily I have my paper crafting to keep me busy all day (and night). I am a Halloween Freak with a capital H and a 3D project addict but I also enjoy making cards  and I love colors. Lot of colors! I’m also practicing to alter files and hope to be able to make designs of my own someday. Other than that I’m just your average Nutcase and I love having fun with my family and friends

I am 47 years old, married, two children already of age.  I live in Itu, a city in the interior of the city of São Paulo, Brazil. (Translated from Portuguese)

Debs Smith – Design Team Coordinator

“Hi y’all  My names is Debs and I am from Essex, Ontario Canada.  Proud pet parent of 2 wonderful dogs and a cat.  Been crafting all my life but my papercrafting journey started 5 years after an accident limited my crafts.  I started with cardmaking and now 3D paper structures to mix media.  I am also working with perler beads to make pieces of art for friends and family”

Janet Packer

Janet lives in Scotland where the unpredictable weather gives plenty of ‘stay-in-doors’ opportunities for crafting. She’s a big fan of Silhouette cutting machines and loves making 3D items as well as cards and all manner of home décor projects. She loves to add a little extra surprise to her makes, so look out for those unexpected colour combinations and use of unusual media.

Janet’s creative journey started at age 4 when an inspired relative gave her a lovely big box of Caran D’Ashe pencils. Since then she’s passed though phases of painting, dressmaking, sewing, and toy-making, and has finally found the perfect mix of technology and creativity in papercrafting!

Nancy Nickel

Hello…I’m Nancy and I live in a small town in Saskatchewan, Canada, with my sweet and supportive husband. I entered the paper crafting world about 7 years ago, and enjoy making cards, layouts, tags, mini albums…everything. I discovered the joy of using cut files when I was generously gifted with a Cricut Explore Air Machine. I’m excited to be joining the Simply Crafty SVGs Design Team, and I look forward to sharing Sandy’s great files with you!

Leslie Turner

My name is Leslie, I’m married with two grown children and one granddaughter, and I live in beautiful Colorado. I began scrapbooking about 40 years ago, way back when scrapbooks were really bland – before all the fun papers and embellishments came about. For the last 20 years or so, my paper passion has been card making. I started out making computer-generated cards, graduated to card kits, then quickly realized that having my own stash of stuff was the way to go! The rest is history, as they say! I’m addicted to rubber stamping and also enjoy making all kinds of 3-D paper projects and altered items, and I’ve been bitten by the mixed media and art journal bugs! Thanks so much for the opportunity to be part of the Simply Crafty SVGs Design Team!

Jana Forrest

Hello! I am Jana Forrest. My last name is suited to a rainy wet Oregon. It seems like I was born crafting and have been at it since I was 8. Sewing, cooking and currently paper crafting. Mostly cards but stretching my wings with 3D SVGs. My hubby Bob and I have a machine shop 10 miles from our home and we can be found there most often. We have 2 purring cats that rule the roost, Spooky Forrest and Emerald Forrest (seemed like perfect names to me) A daughter and daughter-in-law with a ton more animals. (DIL is a VETERINARIAN)

When fishing season opens, we head to the Pacific Ocean for salmon and halibut fishing in our big boat. Please feel free to come visit my blog, Life should be full of mirth. It takes to much energy to be grumpy. Hope to see you soon.
