New Design Team and Survey Winner

I am so impressed with all of the talent I have seen in the last couple of weeks while reviewing the design team submissions! I wish we could include everyone!

After much deliberation, we have selected six team members, each with a unique style and great talent. Once again, we are excited to have a very mixed group of experienced, published paper artists and fresh new faces.

I am excited to introduce the new FotoBella Design Team!

Apryl Holland

Hi! My name is Apryl Holland. I am blessed with raising a beautiful family and enjoying the hustle and bustle of all that life brings. I live in a friendly beach town in Southern California with my husband, two children, and cute little min pin Daisy Duke.

I began scrapbooking 15 years ago and I can say I love it! My paradise is escaping to my scrapbook room (the woman cove) in the attic, putting on a good movie on Netflix and crafting to my heart's content. I also enjoy cooking, baking, being silly with my kids, and just being me. 
KimberlyRae Ford

My name is KimberlyRae, I live in Eastern Washington with my husband and two boys.  I enjoy spending time with my family, boating, gardening, sewing, travel, and Art of Any kind!

Art is my passion-I'm challenged by anything that can be created with my hands!   I have made many digital/hybrid layouts over the years and my work has been published in many magazines. I also make paper jewelry from paper beads and stamps. I've sewn for many years and used to design children's clothing.  Even though I've only been creating with paper for a couple of years I'm totally addicted and feel at home with paper, fabric, fiber, wire and glue! I'm always up for new and exciting challenges and use any new crafty tool I can get my hands on to create with!

Kim McMahon-Rosenberger 

I am a veteran to the scrapbooking world. I have been scrapbooking and papercrafting for almost 17 years.

Currently, I am an independent class instructor specializing in scrapbooking, paper crafting, mixed media and altered arts. I was altered arts before mixed media became a catch phrase in the industry :) I have worked at several scrapbook stores, designed for scrapbook companies and taught classes for almost 10 years.

As I have fallen into a specific style, I have figured out who I am as an "artist" and love to share my passion with others.
Lisa Wilkinson

My name is Lisa Wilkinson. I am a mommy to 6. A wife to the love of my life. A home schooler, a creative gal who finds joy in creating something everyday, whether it be a craft or activity for my children, something to add a little spice to our home or a cherished layout for our scrapbooks that will be meaningful and lasting. 

I am always creating something and that brings me such joy! I have been scrapbooking for over a dozen years and if you read my blog you will see my style has slowly evolved into what it is now... layered, lumpy, bumpy, misty, sewed on, with a lot of white space. It is "organized-messy".   I am currently loving... layers with stories and heart.

And welcome back Sarinda and Jeri!

Sarinda Jones
Hi, my name is Sarinda Jones. I live in Salt Lake City with my husband and son. I'm an artsy scrapper, art journaler, mixed-media artist, jeweler and glass artist. I Love it. I try to capture that moment in my life through art. I enjoy the whole process of making art. From the beginning till the end. I like to use different techniques. Everything is spontaneous and I never know what I will get at the end, trusting the process from the start. In my opinion this is the most exiting part of making an art. I can describe my style as mixing of different styles. I don't want to limit myself to the one style. Face the brilliance of your most wonderful creations and dwell on your dreams. I believe in teaching, the sharing of ideas and the playfulness of creating. I excited to be apart of this amazing team.
Jeri Vann
Originally from Utah, I moved to LA and graduated from FIDM with a degree in Product Development. I then went on to work in the apparel industry. I became a statistic of the economy downshift and was laid off. So to keep my sanity in my free time I became intrigued with projects that included paper, beads and basically anything I had laying around the house. I love to create cards, gift tags, gift baskets as well as jewelry and my own custom wall decor. I love to challenge myself with out of the ordinary projects and create one of a kind pieces that I either sell or use myself. I love doing anything creative and unique, and I am constantly researching what is new and creative to get inspiration for a new creation of my own.

Of course we have one more thing to announce today!! The big winner of our $200 gift certificate. Thank you to everyone who participated in our survey. You have given us great insights and feedback.

Our lucky winner is Jennifer Brockob!
