by May Sukyong Park

designer logo rect m1Hello, Everyone!

Today we have an EXCITING news to share with you! We have added a new designer to our growing Card Design Team! Please join us in welcoming the amazingly talented Virginia Lu:

Profile VirginiaLu

Originally from Taiwan, Virginia came to Canada for grad school and received her Master’s degree in Education in the mid-80s. She ended up marrying a physician and becoming a Canadian citizen! After managing hubby’s medical office for over 20 years, she now devotes all her time to stamping and blogging. Virginia discovered stamping when her son was a baby and has always loved the aspect of creating something original, authentic and handmade. Virginia’s love for a paper was deeply rooted since her favorite pastime when she was young was to frequent local stationary stores in Taiwan. Virginia loves to try out new techniques and products. Her card-making style is fun and simple, yet polished with a WOW factor. With her language skills (Mandarin, Taiwanese, English, and German) and passion for stamping, Virginia hopes to inspire and encourage card makers all around the world. She is tickled pink to be part of the Altenew Card Design Team!

You can check out her creations on her blog and connect with her on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Flickr.

I have been a big fan of Virginia, not only as a designer but as a person since I found her challenge blog, Virginia's View challenge in 2014. She has contributed to our paper crafting community in so many ways by encouraging fellow crafters and sharing tons of inspirations over the past few years. Welcome, Virginia! We are simply thrilled to have you on the team!

Take a look at this gorgeous card that she created for us today:

(Stamp set used:  Adore You)

Make sure to visit her blog to see more and don’t forget to leave her some love. We can not wait to see more of Virginia’s work with Altenew products!

Make sure to come back tomorrow as we will introduce another design team member. See you then!

Virginia will be a great addition to your DT. Now you need to think about dies for the Adore You set. That’s a lot of fussy cutting – although with this set it’s fairly easy.
