My name is Diana and I live in Miami, Florida with my wonderful fiancé. I am 41 years old and I work full-time as an Administrative Assistant. I have been paper crafting now for a little over a year and I started my blog at the beginning of this year. Although I have always been very creative and crafty, I have found my true passion through paper crafting. I purchased my Cricut Expression in October 2009 after being laid off from a company that I really loved working for over the past 11 years. While un-employed I saw many late night infomercials on the Cricut Expression and was marveled at all it was able to do. So I knew I had to have one, regardless of being unemployed. The funny thing is it sat in my closet un-opened for 4 months..gasp!! Can you imagine?! However, once I opened it up and started using my Cricut, I became totally addicted! Throughout the past year, I have been lucky enough to add the Cuttlebug and the Gypsy to my list of tools. Not to mention, over 60 cartridges! Yes, you can say I am a bit addicted :0) The joy I receive from creating a one of a kind card, layout or project is beyond words. I never imagined how much joy and happiness owning this machine would bring me. Not to mention, all the wonderful people I would get to know throughout this growing paper crafting community. I am super excited to be part of the new 360 Cricut Design Team. I hope that by sharing my creations I can inspire many, as so many of you have done the same for me. Looking forward to all the fun and I can’t wait to get started!

Hello My name is Kim Caudill aka My Crafting Creations. I am 41 years old. Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. I love making cards and scrapbooking. I will try to alter anything. I have one daughter that is 20 years old. I purchased my Cricut Expression last year. My secret is that I am always buying new products that come out and trying them out. Just in one year time I have enough to fill up a craft room. I have just started my blog and enjoy making friends and corresponding, commenting and checking out everyones sites to see all the other creative ideas everyone has. You could call me a blog stalker. lol..
Hi, my name is Jo and I live in a small town in central Missouri with my husband, daughter and seven dogs. I spend my days as the bookkeeper for a public school district. I’m also a member of Rotary International and the accounting chairperson for an American Cancer Society Relay for Life committee. Whenever I have a little free time, I can usually be found in my craft room working on a project or in front of my computer looking for ideas for my next project.
While I've been crafting for years, I didn't start making cards until after I received my Cricut Expression as a Christmas gift in 2008. Since then, cardmaking has become my passion! In May of 2009, I started my blog and have had a wonderful time meeting new friends and sharing the love of crafting. I’ve also had the privilege of being a member of the first My Pink Stamper design team.
I’m very excited to be a part of the Cricut 360 Challenge Blog and can’t wait to see what everyone creates … we’re going to have a blast!

My name is Stacey and I am a very proud Navy wife and mom to 2 awesome teenagers. My family supports my paper crafting hobby 100% and are my biggest fans. I love to create things for them. I have been papercrafting since Dec. 2005. I started out scrapbooking and then slowly got into card making. I have recently discovered that I love to alter things also. Whether it is clipboards, jars, picture frames, etc. I guess I just love to play with paper :)

I am into card making, stamping, knitting, and crafts in general. My love for paper crafting started on Christmas 2008 when my dear husband bought me a Cricut Expression. Since then, I have been collecting all sort of gadgets, stamps, Cricut cartridges, paper, paper, and more paper.

Hi everyone—I’m Sonya and I am so excited to be a part of the Cricut 360º Design Team. I started paper crafting in 2000 when a good friend of mine invited me to a large scrapbook convention that she did not want to attend by herself. I had so much fun that night that I have yet to stop creating! I remember my excitement of seeing an advertisement for the original Cricut back in 2006 and ended up receiving one for my birthday that year. Soon after, I added a Cuttlebug, Expression and Gypsy to the mix—along with many cartridges! My favorite cartridge is Elegant Edges—I think it’s perfect for scrapbook pages and for creating frames for stamped images in card making. I love using bright colors and clean lines in my creations.
When I’m not in my scrapbook room, you’ll probably find me on my bicycle—our entire family loves to bike and we are big advocates for bicycle safety and creating bike friendly communities. I also enjoy cooking, reading and traveling. My favorite movie is Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and I never, ever pass up a piece of cheesecake

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to be part of a new Design Team! I am an empty nester, married to my best friend who really keeps me entertained. I have a 25 year old daughter who lives in Indiana. I am retired at 48 years old and living with my hubby and our two furbabies in Florida. Its different not working when you were a workaholic! I owned my own granite and marble fabrication and installation shop. I stayed busy meeting clients in retail setting of our showroom and builders out on the site. Needless to say it was always a shocker to them if they never worked with me before and then met me in person. Of course this wasn't the normal thing for a woman to be doing and I was all of 4"10" and I think they thought I would be a push over but they quickly learned I was very tough, held my own and wasn't intimidated by them.

My name is Barb and I have only been blogging since the beginning of the year. I am a fairly new blogger but certainly not new to crafting or scrapping.
I am happily married and have a 22 year old son. Our home is in St. Cloud Minnesota.
By day, I am a full time corporate meeting planner. My hobbies include traveling, cooking, exchanging recipes, quilting, and especially paper crafting, whether it is scrapbooking or card making.
I have been crafting for as long as I can remember. My favorite tool is my Gypsy. I have to thank my husband who gave me my first Cricut a few years ago. I was skeptical at first, but now, can’t live without it.
I have recently added the E2 and the Imagine to my tool collection.
I became a Creative Memories consultant almost 2 years ago, mainly to support my scrappy habit. Since then I have hosted several themed scrapbook retreat weekends and swaps for my friends/family.
I thrilled to be a part of the first 360º design team and as excited about this new challenge blog. I can't wait to get started and see where it takes all of us.

Me permiten decirles que el elegir este grupo de diseñadoras fue muy difícil! Sonia y yo dedicamos mucho tiempo admirando los blogs y de verdad tratando de elegir un equipo que pudiera reflejar nuestra visión. Después de un tiempo nos dimos cuenta de que teníamos que elegir a 12 diseñadoras para que formaran parte de el primer equipo de diseño oficial, pero no queríamos perder la oportunidad de volver a ver el trabajo de aquellas diseñadoras que no podemos añadir al equipo ahora. Para resolver nuestro dilema, decidimos invitar a TODAS las que no pudimos añadir al equipo ahora a que sean diseñadoras invitadas. Si tu eres una de ellas porfavor envianos un mensaje a firstname.lastname@example.org dejandonos saber de tu interes. En cuanto recibamos todas las entradas, vamos a crear un itinerario y se lo haremos llegar.
Ahora, sin mas espera les presento al primer equipo de diseno para Cricut 360: (la lista esta arriba)
Muchas FELICIDADES a las disenadoras que fueron elegidas! Porfavor envianoss un mensaje con tu foto, tu nombre completo y tu direccion de blog a email@example.com. Sonia ha creado unas firmas mug bonitas y las quiere personalizar.

Besitos en Cristo,
