I'd like to take this time to thank everyone who applied for our latest DT Call.  We were pleased with the number of applicants.  That number increases each time we have a DT Call and that makes our job of choosing that much more difficult.  We really appreciate our faithful followers.

If you did not make the team, don't let that discourage you.  We only had a handful of openings.

Without further ado, our new DT Members are:


My name is Mary Bennetts and I have been scrapping for about 9 years. I have always loved pretty papers, stationary and photo's, so scrapbooking is the perfect craft for me, I must say it is more a passion than a craft. I do something scrap related nearly every day.
I am married with 3 grown children, 2 adorable Grandchildren and one very spoilt old dog named Scruffy. I live at Orange NSW, we grow nearly everything , but no Oranges! I love to travel, enjoy reading and meeting friends for coffee.
When I am scrapping the photo and story tend to dictate what style the layout takes, and I like to try new techniques and I am totally addicted to all things scrappy.

Wendy Crowe

I have been a happy scrapper for 15 years now. It helps that I have 3 willing subjects, my kids! I have 2 girls (Brittany - 22 and Jessica -10) and my little guy (Jason -5). With this age range, I can pretty much scrap just about every subject out there. Which makes me a happy shopper…i mean, scrapper. :) My style is pretty simple and clean, but I'm willing to try any technique at least once. Nothing wrong with trying new things!
I am from a small town in Northern Ontario Canada where we've been having crazy winter weather lately. I have a secret passion for scrapbooking and cardmaking. I have always had a creative side; sketching, drawing, painting, mixed media... I have tried them all and I love it! I am married to the sweetest man who loves to travel. We have 2 beautiful children together and 2 spoiled Siamese cats. I have been scrapbooking for over 10 years now. I love how it has evolved and grown. Keeps me ready to create :)

Manda Moore

My name is Manda and I am a graphic designer living in Melbourne, Australia. I love all things paper and being creative. My first adventure into the world of paper crafting was back in 2005 when I started making cards to give to family and friends, I soon became so addicted to card making and the next logical step was to move onto scrapbook pages and since then I have never looked back. I am a bit of a sketch and challenge addict because I find them as a great starting point. I am owner of Mandalika Designs, an online store selling both printable and physical journal cards and elements for scrapbooking that I have designed myself. I have recently been lucky enough to be involved in starting Life. Paper. Scrapbook which is a quarterly online magazine and blog celebrating scrapbooking in Australia (and the rest of the world). The first issue is set to be released on March 27.

Crystal Schneider

I live in Iowa with my husband and 2 beautiful daughters. I'm very lucky to be a stay at home mom to my girls. Both my girls are in school full time now they are in 1st and 3rd grade. Now that they are in school I spend my free time at the gym, volunteering at school, taking an online photography class to improve my photography skills and scrapbooking. I started scrapbooking over ten years ago (wow that makes me feel old). My first scrapbook was my wedding book looking back at it I can see how my style has evolved. My style has changed over the years just like the different trends in scrapbooking have come and gone. We moved last summer for my husbands job so I was lucky enough to get a room to use for my scrapbooking so I am able to leave projects out as I go. My dream would be to some day have a project published in a scrapbook magazine I just love to show people my work and hope that I inspire them some way. 

Let's give our new DT members a warm welcome.  They will be working on the first reveal in March, so stay tuned.
