A New Designer on the Team

by Tasnim

Good morning!

Last week we introduced Svitlana Shayevich as one of our new designers. This week we are adding one more designer to our growing team!

Please join me in welcoming the incredibly talented Therese Calvird!! 

Therese Calvird

Therese lives on the Gold Coast in Australia with her husband and two precious cats, she has also lived and worked overseas a few times in the UK and in Guernsey. She has always enjoyed many kinds of crafting and all that was put aside when she found her love of card making over 10 years ago. She wanted to share the joy and so created her Youtube channel 3 years ago and along with design teams, magazine publications, swimming, camping and travel (oh, and full time shift work) she manages to keep quite busy. She likes to try out many different styles and techniques, but especially loves to create with flowers.

You can find her at her blog www.lostinpaper.wordpress.com or over at Pinterest.

I have been a fan of Therese for some years, and couldn't be more thrilled about her joining the Altenew team! Take a look at this gorgeous card that she created for us today :)
