Hello, crafters! We have some thrilling news to start 2021 off on a great note. Our Card Design Team is growing by two members!
Please join us in giving a hearty welcome to Emily Midgett and Tenia Nelson.
You may recognize these two talented crafters, as they have both served as guest designers for many of our release blog hops in the past. We absolutely love their card making styles and are thrilled to have them on the team.
Without further ado, let's get to know a little about our new design team members.
Emily lives in the Midwest with her husband, big twins and baby twins, two cats, and a large dog. In a past life, she obtained a master’s degree in music, specifically voice, and had a private voice studio, but she became a stay-at-home mom after her older set of twins was born.
She has been crafting for most of her life in one form or another, dabbling in painting, drawing, jewelry-making, scrapbooking, and Cricut-crafting. (Basically, being a craft-supply collector.) Her love of papercrafting really intensified after getting married, when she was looking for the perfect thank you notes and ended up purchasing half of the stamp aisle and many shades of blue ink from Hobby Lobby – the start of a slippery slope.
While stamping was the beginning of her papercrafting passion, she now has discovered her true love: coloring. Watercolors, alcohol markers, and colored pencils are never far from her reach, and coloring Altenew flowers is one of her favorite ways to unwind from the stresses of mom-life. Flowers, vivid color, and the occasional sparkle can always be found on Emily’s projects!
Tenia Nelson grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area but has called Denver, Colorado her home since 1990. She is a wife to Tim (15+ years!!), momma to Thelonious (9 years old), and doggie momma to Snowball. When Tenia is not making cards or getting inky, she plays music professionally as a pianist and percussionist and teaches private and public school music (over 20 years!).
Tenia got her start in paper crafting over 20 years ago and dabbles in everything from cardmaking and scrapbooking to mixed media, hand lettering, and metal stamping. Tenia’s cardmaking style can be described as CAS Cray Cray (CAS with LOTS of FUN and goodness going on)!
