Welcome PKS Creative Team 2014!!!

Good morning!!!

Today is a special day at Peachy Keen Stamps, because this is the day that the 2014 Creative Team is announced!  I'm looking so forward to working with this talented group of ladies and we're all excited for what 2014 will bring!  

Please join me in welcoming these ladies to the PKS family!!

Hello everyone. My name is GiGi and I live in Central Wisconsin. I am a wife to a very supportive husband who encourages me with my crafting and a mom of 1 boy who is in his Sophmore year of college.  I am also a mommy to 3 fur babies. I have an 18 year old Shit Tzu, an 8 year old Pekingese, and a 5 year old Yorkie.  I have been crafting all my life. My mom brought us crafting with anything and everything, so I am a jack of all trades. Paper crafting is my true love though. I started scrapbooking in 1995 and that started my love of paper. In 2010 I got my first Cricut and working with electronic die cutting machines has captured my heart. I now have 3 Cricuts and a Silhouette Cameo. I love creating things out of paper and sharing my projects on my blog to encourage my readers to create things themselves. I love making cards and other paper projects along with stamping and coloring with Copic markers. One of my favorite things to use is my Peachy KeenFace Stamps  to make my die cuts come to life.
My name is Amber Kroening. I'm a 36 year old Marine Corps wife, and work at home mom to 3 cutie pies. My husband and I have been married for 13 years. He retired in September 2012 after serving for 20 years. I've been stamping since February '08.  I would describe my style as fresh, clean, happy, and simple. Although I do want to do more mixed media this year!  I also enjoy making hairbows, scrapbooking, making jewelry, and photography. As you can see, I love to be creative!
 Hi! My name is Emily. I am an Army wife to an amazing man who thankfully supports and encourages me in my paper crafting hobby. We are blessed with two very active little boys who never leave life with a dull moment and a little girl on the way! Are family is currently stationed in Virginia though I am originally from Iowa. I've always loved creating projects but the birth of my oldest son was the catalyst that really got me into paper crafting. I love how paper crafting brings me great joy and really lets me express my creativity. When I'm not creating/scrapping, I love spending time with my family, supporting my solider, traveling the world, and reading a great book (when I have time). I am very excited and thankful to continue on this creative journey with Peachy Keen Stamps!
Hi, Peachy Friends! My name is Saundra and my blog is Luv Scrapping Together. I have a wonderful husband of 26 years and 4 beautiful children. I have always been crafty but  paper crafting addiction did not begin until somewhere around 2008 when I was introduced to a digital die cutting machine. I was a teacher at the time and I thought this would be a great asset to helping me create things for my classroom. Little did I know, a whole new world would be opened up to me. I first discovered Peachy Keen Stamps while searching blogs for inspiration. When I saw the cute Peachy faces I knew I had to have them! My collection had grown quite a bit and I have ventured into Copic coloring. I am a novice but I have a lot of fun! I have served on several design teams and had always wanted to be on the Peachy Keen Stamps design team. It has been my pleasure to serve on the design team these last 2 years and I am beyond thrilled to be serving for a third term. Thank you Peachy family for having me!
Hi, my name is Liz of Liz’s Paper Loft!  I'm so excited to be on the Peachy Keen Design Team!  I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and am married to a man that understands my need to be creative.  We have two daughters, one recently married and the other is away at college in Tennessee.  I work part-time for a real estate company as a file auditor to support my love for paper, embellishments, and all things crafty!  I have been a crafter since I was a little girl, however my obsession for scrapbooking started 19 years ago and stamping shortly thereafter.  Then my obsession took on a whole new meaning when I received my Cricut Expression, Christmas 2006.  Even though I loved my people & animal die cuts, I knew something was missing.  Then I stumbled upon Peachy Keen darling face stamps, they were just the perfect touch!
It’s hard to believe that it’s been over four years since I’ve been blogging, loving every minute of it!  It’s given me the chance to become friends with many across the country and the world, even meeting some in person!
I want to give a BIG THANK YOU to Kathy and everyone at Peachy Keen for the opportunity to join their Design Team!
Hello I'm Joanna Bandelin. I am a mommy, a wife and a follower of Jesus. I am a professional hairstylist and own a small Aveda salon with my sister-in-law in a little mountain town in California. I am an amateur photographer a thrift store shopper and DIYer. And when I get a moment of peace and quite I like to create. My favorite thing to do is scrapbook and work on my Project Life album. A few years ago I was lucky enough to be apart of the Peachy Keen Stamps design team and I am so excited to be given the chance to be apart of  this wonderful community of stampers and crafters again!

I'm so honored to be joining the Peachy Keen family!  I love all things paper crafting related: stamps, scrap booking, patterned papers, twines, ribbons, markers, etc... the list could go on and on!  I'm not sure if I have a favorite crafty style but rather enjoy dabbling in everything just a bit to keep the creative juices flowing.  I've been privileged to be part of some amazing design teams over the past 5+ years that I've been stamping. I love getting to know our online paper crafting community and collecting items for my crafty stash along the way!  My husband Brad (of nearly 18 years!) is my biggest supporter and encouragement.  We have two great kids, Isaiah and Ashley, who are a true delight and joy to our family.  I teach K4-1st grade in a small private Christian school during the day and get as much crafty time as I can during my limited free time.
Hi my name is Jessica and I am from Buffalo, NY. I am married to a wonderful and very supportive husband and  a stay at home mom to two very active boys, ages 12 and 10 . Between football for my oldest son and travel baseball with my youngest, I needed an activity for myself and I found a love of  stamping and card making  using my Silhouette Cameo. You can always find me sharing projects on my blog~Chick-n-Scrap and entering my projects in various challenges with my hope to inspire just someone along my crafty journey.

I live in New York with my husband Al and  together we've raised four boys who are all young men now.  Besides crafting I love hanging out with my family and two adorable dachshunds on our pontoon during the spring and summer months.   Working full time for a school district in the Technology Department keeps me very busy so I enjoy coming home retreating to my craft room to relax and unwind.   I love creating cards, candy treat bags and boxes, 3D projects, discovering new techniques and working with new products.   I’m very excited to be joining the Peachy Keen Creative Team, I’m been a fan for a couple of years now.

Hi, my name is Amy and my blog is called Scrapping Mommy ( I live in a little town in central Utah with my loving husband of 15 years and our three adorable kiddos. I have been paper crafting for about 11 years, but I have been crafting in one way or another my whole life.....thanks to my grandmother who I spent much of my childhood with. She was a very talented crafter who taught me many things about style and details......something that I hope to be able to pass on to my own children. My style is generally clean and well balanced, but I like to go wherever inspiration leads me. Because I am a mom to little ones, you can often find me up crafting into the wee hours of the morning. I also have a passion for photography, gardening, reading, cooking and baking, and you can usually find me hiking and fishing up in the beautiful Utah mountains during the summer months.

Hello y'all!  I'm Lorie, and I'm thrilled to be a part of the Peachy Keen Stamps Team once again!  I'm a country girl at heart, who just happens to love all kinds of crafts,  and especially paper crafts and stamping which I discovered about 10 years ago.  I've been married to my high school sweetheart for 31 years, and together we have two grown sons.  I love living in the country and still live on the family farm where I grew up in rural Missouri.   When I'm not crafting or working with this super talented team, I can be found enjoying time with our two adorable grandsons, and helping the hubs on the farm.  I'm looking very forward to another exciting year with Peachy Keen Stamps  and this SUPER talented team!!
