Hi there! It’s a very exciting day today as we announce the very talented designers joining our team!
You might recognise my name as I was formerly editor of Craft Stamper magazine. I now work as a freelance craft designer, writing for several publications and teaching workshops – and I love it. When I am not crafting (which isn’t that often!) I might be found browsing antique fairs and car boot sales or dreaming about my next trip to Disney World.
As a card designer I have been extremely fortunate to also share this passion on my blog, Pinterest, design teams, workshops and, more recently, through being published.
Behind the scenes I am a mother of two teenage boys and I am proud of how they are growing into fine young men. I work as an aide in a local secondary school in a seaside town called Portland, which is down the bottom of mainland Australia. Some of my favourite things are: chocolate, the sea, kayaking, enjoying nature, having adventures, kangaroos and koala bears. Life is busy, in a good way!
I believe that being creative is a journey. My journey has given me many wonderful opportunities and challenges which have been unexpected and ones that I have embraced and am thankful for. Scary at times…but so rewarding! The main thing, to me, is to always enjoy and have fun in what you do.
Hi, I am Shilpa from India. I am mixed media artist and I have been painting and crafting since I can remember. I love to make Art Journals, Altered Art, and canvas.
Usually my creations are vibrant, lively and colorful. My art keeps me sane. I like to give tutorials to share my creative knowledge and empower others to be creative. I am crazy about all kinds of stamps, and super excited to be part of Visible Image.
The Czech Republic
I’m a mixed media freak from the Czech Republic (aged 40). I´ve been working as a primary teacher. I discovered the unlimited mixed media world two years ago. My style is anything but clean and simple. I love to let my imagination run riot and explore new techniques and materials. I’m addicted to creating. There’s no such thing that makes me sooo happy. Diving my fingers into colours is my everyday obssession. Besides the world of art I fancy chocolate, wine, dogs, handbags and snow at Xmas.
Hi, I am Wilma Voermans and I live in the beautiful surrounding off the Swiss Bernese Oberland. Mother of 8 children and grandmother of , untill now, 6 grandchildren.
In summer season we have a lot of tourists and work is very busy. But in the winter we keep it slow , I like to visit musea and go for walks with my dog. Don’t think these walks take me hours, they always end after a short while on a terras with a cappucino…
I have a passion for mixed media, which can be used on every style of craft. The main things you will find in my Youtube tutorials is artjournaling, canvas and scrapbooking. Private I paint abstract style (this because I cant draw )
I am a design team member for different manufacters in crafty, painty colorland. I am looking forward to working with the great stamps Visible Image offers.
When it comes to crafting I will give anything a go, and my style can range from clean and simple cards to a very painty and inky journal page, with a bit of altered art on the side if the mood takes me. I can quite easily flip to a new favourite thing to do in a second, so long as I can get a stamp on it I am happy.
I am thrilled to be part of the Visible Image Design Team.
My name is Elina, and I’m a scrapbooker, card maker, paper crafter, and photographer from southern Finland, Vantaa. I’ve been married for 12 years, and we have two wonderful children aged 7 and 9.
I have made different kinds of crafts as long as I can remember. Sewing, knitting, crocheting, and stitching I learned at school at a very young age. I have always loved to paint and draw, and paper has always been my favourite material for different kinds of projects.
Our wedding in 2003 was a kick-start for my paper crafting hobby. When going through stores to find decoration ideas I discovered the amazing world of paper crafting tools and supplies. I did not even know such things existed! I bought my first stamps and started making cards for Christmas and for my friends’ birthdays. It was so much fun!
Summer 2009 I was browsing through internet looking for card making ideas and came across a Finnish scrapbooking challenge site. At that time scrapbooking was a quite unknown hobby in Finland; none of my friends had even heard about it. However, I wanted to give it a try, made my very first layout, opened a blog, and got hooked. Since then paper crafting has played an increasingly important role in my life; it’s my way to unwind and keep away work stress. The busier my work days are at the office, the more time I try to allocate time to my crafting projects. Being able to take even a short moment to myself, get my hands messy with inks, paints and gesso, and to create something beautiful and tangible is very important to me.
Hi, my name is Veerle, I’m married and proud mom of 3 teenagers and I live in Belgium.
I’m a kindergarten teacher but I don’t teach anymore. I kind of rolled into the creative world when my kids were young and I had to find a way to take on all the photo’s I made of my children. That’s when I discovered scrapbooking and it all started for me. I started as a scrapbook consultant for a company in The Netherlands and internet brought me to mixed media and cardmaking today.
I work together with a company to provide workshops here in Belgium and I also demonstrate in shops and at fairs.
I love trying out all kind of different techniques and materials so I end up with all different styles of projects. My personal style however is the less cute style but slightly rougher style. Even though I do like to make CAS cards as well.
Searching for stamps on the internet I found Visible Image and I fell in love with them immediately. And now I’m so happy I can call myself part of the team as guest designer. I’m looking forward in working with these stamps and showing you my projects. Just as much as I’m looking forward in seeing all your lovely projects.
We cannot even express how thrilled we are to be working with you all… and we cannot wait to see what you create with our stamps, especially our brand new designs ♡
Our new designers will join our super awesome existing Design Team…
So that makes a team of 15.. the biggest team we have ever had! And we think 2016 is going to be the biggest and best year we have ever had too… in so many ways! Very exciting!!!
