Making Headlines! New Illustrators Join The Craft's Meow!"

It's is 
here at TCM !!!

It's been our goal all year long to bring
you exciting stamp designs & lots of surprises and
today we have
as we introduce you to
who will be joining the TCM family!

"I'm from Southern California where I was born and raised. Me and my hubby have 3 beautiful children. 1 boy and 2 girls. I have had the pleasure of being a stay at home mother up until recently. I have many jobs. A full time mother and housewife being my number 1 job. I love to cook and I'm a total clean freak! I am also a part time server at a restaurant. I love to read romance books -- although time hasn't allowed me lately. I don't watch too much TV. I love Romantic Comedy movies.
I started paper crafting almost 7 years ago, with Stampin' Up! I quickly discovered a whole new stamping world. I made goals of being on design teams and getting published. I've been lucky enough to make some wonderful and amazing friends who have given me some amazing opportunities. Diana Crick opened a door to me by adding me to her amazing design team, I was able to work my first CHA at the Scor-pal/Mini Magnolia booth, where I met one of my dearest friends Angie Hunt. I now design stamps and also have a few paper collections with Little Darlings. I have also met Suzanne Dean, the owner and creator of Color me Creative. I teach a few classes on her website. I've also made some wonderful friends with my design team mates--my idols! I have my own digi papers which I sell in my Etsy Store and  this past year I  have started to teach Copic Coloring at scrap stores in Southern California. . as you see I'm very busy!
I'm so excited to start this new venture with Lisa and The Crafts Meow. This is going to be so much fun. I can't wait to make more friends and show you all my creations!"

"Hi! I'm Angelica, an illustrator, graphic designer and full time thinker-upper who can't sit still for more than a few minutes. While it's hard to think of a task I wouldn't take on, I'd say just creating all day keeps me very content. 

I'm a child of God in awe of all the ways he reveals himself in my life, in my family, and in my art. I am truly blessed to live in Wisconsin with my other half, Jorge, who keeps me sane. We have two precious little girls, Lucy and Marlee, who have given me my greatest gift of all - motherhood. 

As a creative enthusiast, it's my joy to use all different kinds of media to tell stories, and explore new ways to communicate the gifts of life and love. I hope you will find my illustrations and designs a tool to help you tell your stories, too. Thank you so much to Lisa for providing this platform to share my heart through my designs with you!"
Last but by no means least, we are thrilled to share a
long-time member of our creative design team
will now be illustrating 
a new line of fresh & exciting stamp collections just for TCM!

"Hi!  My name is Clare Buswell.  Niall & I live in the southwest of Ireland
in the countryside with our lovely 5 year old daughter, Isabelle.
I've always been creative in some form or another.  I have a passion for painting
and have tried lots of different crafts over the years.  I love quilling & making
my own embellishments.  I discovered graphic design at art college.  I only
discovered stamping after the birth of my daughter.

I've been lucky enough to have my work published in Paper Crafts Magazine,
CARDS and CardMaker in the U.S. and I design regularly for
Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine in the U.K.

I'm so excited to be a part of The Craft's Meow
Illustration & design team"
