Hi!! My name is Alison, I have a wonderful husband Stefan, and 2 beautiful children. Stretch is 10 and Liberty is 2. I really started “Scrapbooking/Card making” in 1996 when my dear friend Lisa Bearnson introduced to her new magazine Creating Keepsakes.. after that I was HOOKED!.. I do both scrapbooking and card making.. I have been published in many magazines, worked for Creating Keepsakes as a designer for products sold on QVC, and won many contests. I am so excited to start this new challenge blog Do You Stack Up with all of you. Many of you know me from my other blogs FREE DIGITAL STAMPS & Stretch N Bubbles
I hope with this blog we can inspire you, and you will want to play along with all the DT girls.


My name is Kim and I live in Georgia. I am thrilled to be selected as part of the Design Team of Do You Stack Up Challenge Blog. I began paper crafting in June 2010, it has been a fun and exciting journey in expressing my creativity. My love of paper crafting consists of card making,using digi images, rubber stamping, mixed media, altered art. My work has been published in Scrapbook News and Review 2010 Fall, Gingersnap Creations-Ginger Gem Sept and November 2010. In addition to paper crafting, I enjoy crochet, hand embroidery, and dabble in quilting. As part of the DT I hope to inspire your creativity and I look forward to seeing all the fantastic entries. You can find all my creations at my blog

Hi, I am known as Kitten - I am a calligrapher and crafter, have been forever. I have always been into making stuff myself, and come from a family that stitched and knitted. Poor health made me give up going out to work a few years ago - and my crafting gives me a job keeps me sane. You will find my work full of colour and texture - loads of glitter and gems, layers and texture are all my favorites. I am more than happy to chat craft - and if you want to know how I do something - just drop me a line at my blog

Hi, my name is Denise and I live in Surrey, England. I have been card making for about 5 years now but was heavily into cross stitching before that. I love creating with digi stamps as they are so much more versatile than rubber (still use rubber though). My favourite colouring mediums are Promarkers and Distress inks although I do sometimes use Coloursoft pencils. I also enjoy trying out other crafts such as serviette decoupage and scrapbooking. I am so happy to have been chosen to join this wonderful DT and look forward to seeing all your wonderful entries into the great challenges we have lined up for you.

My name is Miranda and I'm 46 yrs old. When I'm not at work or in the gym you can find me at home making cards or draw something, mainly animals and fairies. I'm addicted to making scrapcards since August 09. I especially like colouring the stampprints and looking for matching papers. I use colourpencils from Caran D'Ache (luminance, pablo), Karismacolor and derwent (Colorsoft, Inkintens, Graphitint, Studio). I also use watercolours from Winston & Newton and Schmincke. I can find me at my blog:
I'm proud to be one of the DT members for DYSU and I'm looking forward making nice paper project to get you all inspired. And when I take a look at the DYSU calender for the coming months, some exiting and special challenges are coming your way so don't forget to check us out at the DYSU blog.

A crafting desk without chaos is not a real crafting desk! :D

Hi, I’m Peggysue Wilson and this is my first time to be part of a design team. For 20 years I was an accountant in Houston, but now I stay at home in North Carolina. I’m happily married and have a grown son in the Marines. I’ve been making cards for just a couple of years. Before getting into rubber stamping, I was doing a lot of decorative painting. I’ve dabbled in one craft or another my entire life. Nowadays I mainly make cards and seem to be addicted to challenges! I’m thrilled to be here with a great group of ladies on the team.

Hello all,
I upload to challenges as Nancy in Iowa. (I'm sure I'm not the only Nancy in Iowa but I seem to be the only one to upload cards under this moniker). This is my very first design team participation. What an honor to be selected!
I live in Northwest Iowa (USA). I've been making cards for a few years - started card blogging one year ago. My card making time is how I regenerate. I enjoy digital images and rubber stamps but do like the storage ease and instant gratification of digital stamp purchases. And who can't love freebie digitals?
Items I can't be without in "my bubble"? ATG tape gun, brayer, Copics, ribbon (copious quantities), Stickles Diamonds, Scor-buddy, and my favorite image printing/stamping cardstock Cryogen White. My blog site is My Fiber Bubble
I looking forward to this new adventure and time with my team mates.
All good wishes,Nancy in Iowa

My name is Jo and I'm 30 something! I was very excited to be selected to be on this DT. I live in rural (read 'remote'!) Western Australia. I am English and my family has lived overseas in different countries for the last ten years now moving with my husband's job. Hence the blog name: The Crafty Nomad! I love making cards using digital or rubber stamps. I also have a passion for fabric and sewing and sometimes the two hobbies merge! I recently invested in a few Copics which I love and am learning to use. I've dabbled in Scrapbooking and other papercrafts as well but the card making seems to be the one sticking around!
Hi - I'm Pauline, a couple of years north of 40, married and living in my hometown in western Victoria, the southeastern state of mainland Australia. We've shared our home with a special needs lass for over 8 years now, and she keeps me busy! Her multiple disabilities are quite demanding, but I still find time to craft. I've always been a crafter. I love to scrapbook, make cards, and make jewellery. I like a multitude of crafts, but those are my mainstays.... I love to bead and stitch in my cards and scrapbooking, as well as using fabric, buttons, ribbon, and fabric flowers. I love to recycle beads, buttons, fabric and flowers in my crafts. I also love using photo printed vintage images in my creations. I teach cardmaking and scrapbooking classes, and also run a scrapbooking group at a local venue. I have a monthly market stall where I sell "one of" cards and jewellery, which I also sell by special order. I just can't get enough of my crafts! I am part of a number of bloggy design teams, and I love creating for people who have become friends!

Hello! I'm Keely Yowler from Georgetown, Kentucky, USA. I love creating cards, scrapbook layouts, mini-albums, and altering everything in site.

My creative inspirations are my wonderful husband, our 5 wild kiddies, and our many pets. I love all things vintage and collect old photos, postcards, and jewelry to use in my creations.

Hi, my name is Wenche and I'm 37 years old. I live in the North of Norway with my husband, 3 children and two dogs. I have been making cards since 2004 and I'm completely addicted to papercrafting. I love different styles and techniques and always loves to try something new. I love both digital and rubber, they are great in different ways. Digital, well it's easy to store and easy to resize, and well - rubber - it's just something about the ink *lol*. I'm very excited to be a part of Do You Stack Up DT-team and I'm looking forward to work with all this great ladies.

Hi Everyone, My name is Marcy. I am very excited to be a part of this new team. I live on Long Island in New York. I have 2 sons, one daughter-in-love and the most wonderful husband any woman could ask for. He is my best friend and biggest fan. We've been married for 31 years.
I am an avid scrapbooker and paper crafter and have been for over 15 years. I am a classroom coordinator for a large craft store chain in the Eastern U.S. I love my job. Not only do I get to create samples around the store and teach classes but I am surrounded all day by my lovelies (all the paper, stamps, scrapping supplies.)
About 6 months ago I started coloring with copics...well, there was no turning back...I LOVE THEM! I am currently on the DT for Alison's Stretch N Bubbles, Gingerloft digi stamp blog site and Unscripted Sketches, a sketch blog. I love creating and sharing with others.


Hello, my name is Tina and I am a graphic artist/designer. I started scrapbooking in Sept. 2008 when my DH was working nights and then stamping in April. 2009 but it wasn’t until this year that my style of cardmaking changed. I am always trying out new techniques so my style is always evolving, however, one thing never changes...I love to fill my page. If you are like me then you are as addicted to all paper, ribbons, embellishments & stamps. I have been fortunate to be published in several magazines, such as Canadian Scrapbooker & Scrapbook Magazine as well as online pubs such as ReadySetCreate and Scrapbook News & Review. You can go here to see more about me and my style.
I am super excited to be on Do You Stack Up DT and you won’t want to miss out in the upcoming months when you see what we have in store for you all. I look forward to getting to know you all and see what you create.
