New Design Team Members

Here are your new members. Originally, there were only going to be 3 new members added but we could not let all these talented ladies go, so our design team has grown to include nine new members.  I am so thrilled to have them on the team.  I hope that all visitors to our blog find inspiration here .  Wether you are a brand new to Cuttlebug, or have had it for many years, Im sure you will see something you like. 

Here is some brief info about our new members, please visit their blogs to see some of their outstanding work. 


I'm married with 3 kids ages 20, 16, and 14. I work outside the home in the Human Resources Field. I have been crafting for years but when the kids were small I put it away. For the last 4 years I have gotten back into it and recently convereted my dining room into my craft studio. I call myself a jack of all trades, mistress of many because I enjoy scrapbooking, rubber stamping, card making, altering items, sewing, quiliting, and crocheting.

With 4 grown children and 3 grandchildren, I find all kinds of excuses to paper craft.  My passion is card making.  I find inspiration EVERYWHERE.  I love to challenge myself to make unique and memorable cards.  I have an enormous sense of humor and I think my cards are a reflection of that.  I am usually my biggest fan!  My Cricut and Cuttlebug are my dynamic duo!  I use them on almost everything I create.  I am beyond thrilled that Nilda has asked me to join her Design Team.  I am looking forward to the new challenges each week and I invite you all to play along!

Hi ya'll!  I'm Steph, and I've been addicted to Paper Crafting for about 6 years now.  My boyfriend, Stephen, and I have two beautiful children, Sydney and Mikey.  We currently reside in the Dallas, TX area.  My love of all things crafty started at a young age.  I have always made my own personalized stationery, so when a friend introduced me to Paper Crafting, I was hooked immediately and I haven't looked back since!  I am very happy to be a part of the wonderful Cuttlebug Spot Design Team, and I look forward to the challenges, and creating some beautiful things for you to enjoy.  Happy crafting!  

Hi, my name is Sonia Kertznus, I was born and raced in Cali-Colombia, so my native language is Spanish. I moved to the USA 23 years ago. I am a SAHM of my 9 year old son, Steven and have been happily married for 10 years with Kenny, my soul mate and the love of my life.  We have 2 dogs, a long hair Chihuahua, Foxy, and a Basset Hound, Billy.  I live in farm land of Homestead Florida, just 5 minutes away from the Everglades and the exit to the Florida Keys. The most important thing in my life is my family and spending time with them, but in all my free time (and I have a lot of it) I scrapbook.  I have been scrap booking all my life, but started the right way and with the right stuff in 2006, ever since, I have become an avid cardmaker, stamper and everything crafty.  Other things I love to do are cooking, sewing and cleaning. Yes!, cleaning, believe it or not, I can't start my day if the house is not spotless.  I am thrilled to be part of The Cuttlebug Spot Design Team, and hope you join us in the weekly challenges..

 I have been a crafter my whole life and have tried just about every craft there is. I started scrapbooking about 8 years ago and in 2004 I attended my first stamping party and I have been hooked ever since. I got my first introduction to Cuttlebug embossing when a friend sent me some embossed pieces of cardstock a couple of years ago. I thought, "What am I going to do with this bumpy paper?". Little did I know what an addiction these folders would end up being!
I've been married for almost 20 years. I don't have children, but I do have lots of cats. I work as an accountant at a small construction company. Besides crafting, I like to hike and do some birdwatching.

My name is Angela Robledo. I live in South Florida and, am a SAHM of 
five children ages between 13 and 2. I have been married for 14 years 
to a wonderful loving husband, and have been stamping since December of
2006. I quickly became addicted to this wonderful craft and have been 
making cards since to give to family and friends. I am very excited to 
be able to join the team here on the Cuttlebug Spot and with each of 
you. Thank you for this exciting opportunity.

My name is Aymee Gandy a.k.a. Southernbellescrapper.  My husband, Brandon, and I are originally from Russellville, AL. We currently reside in Carlisle, PA due to his job. Brandon works for the railroad and I am a stay at home wife at the present. We currently do not have any children, but are looking forward to starting a family very soon. I began scrapbooking in my teens, but only became a hardcore fanatic within the previous year. I am in love with my Cricut Expression and my Cuttlebug. I enjoy creating layouts, cards, altered projects, and scrapbook sketches. I absolutely love anything and everything that has to do with scrapbooking. I scrapbook almost everyday. If you don't find me in my scraproom, you will find me online talking or obsessing over scrappy stuff. My scrapbook style is ever evolving and I am always up for new challenge. I maintain 2 blogs. One for my scrapbooking and one for my sketches. They are:

I'm a SAHM to 2 kitties, Goliath and Jezebel and have been married 33 years to a wonderful guy who encourages and indulges my interests.  I began making cards in May 2008 with the purchase of aCricut Expression.  Visiting the Cricut message board I soon realized that the Cuttlebug was a must have.  I love the rich texture it gives to my projects and I use it alone as well as with my Cricut machine.
