Announcing...Our Newest Members of the HMITM Design Team!

We are so excited to announce the newest members of the HMITM team! We thank everyone who applied--it was very difficult to choose from all the wonderful entries.

We are looking forward to the clever challenges and inspiring creations our new team members will be sharing! Check back on Monday, July 5, for the first challenge brought to you by one of our new designers.

A huge thank you to Kathleen Glossop for the awesome new banner decorating the top of our blog! Smooches, Kat! Along with the new look, we are going to reveal some other new surprises soon, so stay tuned!

So, here's the moment you've been waiting for...Our new design team members, in alphabetical order, with a few words from each of them:

Amanda Torres

"Hi, I'm Amanda (Dalovely Damanda) and I live in sunny FL with my hubby and two daughters. I adore scrapbooking and being crafty! I'm just a nutty gal who loves to cut paper and glue her fingers together. I look forward to being a part of this great design team!"

You can see some of Amanda's creations on her blog, Not Vicious or Malicious...Just Dalovely and Delicious.

Anna-Karin Evaldsson

"I am Anna-Karin Evaldsson.  I have been papercrafting since 2002 and started to scrapbook in 2004. Things were never the same again. I’ve done various arts and crafts my whole life, but scrapbooking is the one that has totally captured my heart and mind and has become more of a lifestyle than a hobby. I absolutely love to play with photos, stamps, paper, ink, embellishments, paint, words and colours. Apart from telling stories, my favourite part is to play with different techniques, to experiment and try different products and tools. I also love to make cards and rarely do anything that doesn’t include at least a bit of stamping. I love challenges and I am so happy to be on the HMITM team."

You can see some of Anna-Karin's creations at her 2Peas Gallery.

Debbie Fitzerald

"My name's Debbie Fitzgerald. I'm a busy mom to five, full time maternity nurse, Facebook junkie and a compulsive patterned paper hoarder. I've been scrapping for about nine years, and love all things layered and embellished. I'm at my most creative late at night, so I usually stay up til the wee hours on my nights off. Scrapping is my realease, my escape and my "me time." I treasure the hours I spend creating the pages as much as I do the finished product. I think challenges are the best way to get inspired, so I'm just thrilled to be join the talented HMITM team."

You can see some of Debbie's creations on her blog, Silver Pool of Light.

Georgia Keays

"Hi I'm Georgia, a stay at home Mum and total scrap addict! I live in Perth, Western Australia with my hubby Bill and three kids Lucy, Eliza and Archie. I love challenges, they are such a great source of inspiration so I am beyond excited to be a part of the HMITM team and can't wait to see everyone's creations!"

You can see some of Georgia's creations on her blog, On My Mind.

Janet Miller

"Getting on the HMITM blog design team is really exciting for me. I love to do challenges and this has always been one of my favorite sources for them. I'm hoping that I can bring some inspiring challenges to all of you and I'm looking forward to working with all the talent that is in this group.

I've been married to my husband Bob for 38 years and we have survived raising 8 children. Our new found freedom lets us split our time between Florida and Pennsylvania. I never run out of pictures to scrap, it's not even possible to ever have that happen.

I love scrapping and have been since 2000 and it just gets more fun all the time. I currently am on A Cherry On Top design team and do the monthly heritage challenge over there. "

You can see some of Janet's creations on her blog, Never Knowing Where I'll Be.

Kathleen Glossop

"Hello!! My name is Kat Glossop, I’m from Western Australia, wife to Jason and Mummy to 3 year old Clay. I’ve been scrapping for about 6 years, but became a complete addict once my son was born - a day rarely goes by when I don’t do something scrappy. I’m not sure what you’d call my style, I love bright colors, and seem to flip from whimsical, to artsy, and pretty much everything in between – I love to explore new styles and techniques, and I LOVE taking part in challenges, they push me out of my comfort zone, encourage me to try things I may not have otherwise, and have more than once gotten me out of a scrappy block! I’m very excited to be a part of this team and can’t wait to start playing. :) "

You can see some of Kathleen's creations on her blog, Confessions of a Scrap Addict.

Welcome to the team, ladies! We're so thrilled you've joined us!
