Announcing: NEW CottageCutz Design Team Members!!!

The time has finally come to announce our NEWEST CottageCutz Design Team Members! We had so many wonderful applications, and really enjoyed viewing all your beautiful work & talent. It really made the process of narrowing down to only 7 hard. We want to thank you all that applied!!!

We are SUPER EXCITED to announce our New members to The CottageCutz Design Team! 

Hi, Friends!  I have been crafting all my life, but papercrafting and cardmaking became my passion a few years ago.
Most of all I love stamping and coloring, both digital and rubber stamps.  Like to use a lot of elements,
like die cuts on my cards, to give dimension and texture. 

Actually living in Kissimee, Florida, but my hometown is Puerto Rico, there's where I grew up and raised my two boys.
Started blogging on 2010 and have been passionate about that since then. This has given me the opportunity to meet 
lovely  people and share our experiences about this wonderful hobby! 

Feel free to visit my blog  I love reading all your comments,
and it always amazes me to see how many people come and visit from all parts of the world.

Hope my style inspires you!

My name is Judy Rozema and I am thrilled to be joining the Cottage Cutz Design Team!
During the school year, I am a part-time elementary music teacher.  I live in Central Nebraska, in Cornhusker country (although I grew up in Arizona), and have been married for 30 years. I have a daughter who is a sophomore Theatre major in college, and a married son who is a Pastor and lives in North Carolina. Two dogs (labs) and a water turtle round out our family.

When I am not stamping, I like to crochet and watch movies, go on "junk jaunts" and travel. I also am very involved in our community theatre as a director and actress. 

I hope you will stop for a visit at my blog - 
Judy's Blog Joy in a JAR!

I am a stay home mom of 2 boys, ages 11 & 13.  I’ve always done some sort of craft since I was little.  It brings me so much joy to create things with my hands.  I love working with dies, piecing things together, and even creating “out of the box” uses for them.  My favorite technique when using dies is coloring.  I love to color the pieces, (and anything else I can find), with my pencils and mineral spirits.  I love making things come alive through color, shading, and shaping.   I love the CottageCutz Dies and am so excited to be joining their team for the next 6 months! 

My name is Lisa a/k/a Raining and I am hopelessly addicted to the art of scrapbooking. As well as cataloging memories for my family I consider what I do to be scrap art. I love taking a flat piece of paper of packaged products and turning them into something beautiful and unexpected. I have always been a creative spirit and feel I come alive when I am in the creative process.
My style leans towards the shabby chic however I let the products I am working with dictate what path to go down. Be it artsy, mixed media or eclectic.
I'm thrilled to be joining this talented team at Cottage Cutz and hope to leave you inspired!

Hi. My name is Olena. I am originally from Ukraine, but 9 years ago I moved to USA. I have been married to my husband for 10 years and I am a mother to two wonderful kids. I began stamping in 2006 and scrapping in 2008. Before papercrafts took over, I was into needlepoint and counted cross stitch. Now instead of a sewing room, the shelves are filled with paper,stamps and inks! I'm mostly a cardmaker, but I do some altered art projects from time to time, too. My first card I uploaded to the Inque Boutique Company. And then I started working with stamps from the Inque Boutique Company for one year. Then, I worked with Heartfelt Creations Company about 3 years. I have been very fortunate to be published in Just Cards, Stampers’ Sampler, Take Ten, Catch UP, Scrap @ Stamps Arts issues. I like working with sketches and challenges. I am so excited to be a part of the amazing CottageCutz Team. Thanks!!!

 I am 40, married to a wonderful husband Franc and we have two boys age 5 and 8. We also have a dog, a cat and two guinea pigs. I am a stay at home mum and in my spare time I love making cards and being  creative. My first language is Slovenian but I am reasonably fluent in English

My name is Vladka and I'm living in a small but beautiful country in Europe, called Slovenia. Creating with paper, specially card making is my passion and I'm crafting for several years now. This is my meditation, my own world where everything is possible.

Congratulations Ladies and Welcome to CottageCutz Design Team! We cant wait for you all to see what they have in store using CottageCutz Dies!!! We know they will bring Lots of Inspiration for you all!!!

I'm really loving the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?
