About Melissa:

Hey there..
My name is Melissa Pinter and I am 28 years old and very Bubbly.. I am also a Wife, Mother and Caretaker .I have three Beautiful children Haley 9, William 4(step son) and Ethan 2. I was introduced to the scrapbooking world when my son Ethan was diagnosed with a rare liver disease called Biliary Atresia., Ethan was not born with bile ducts. So the only way to make him better was to get a Liver . I had to live at the Ronald Mcdonald House in Cincinnati Ohio from November 2010- May 2011 waiting for a liver Transplant. So I went from being a workaholic to a stay home crafty mom. I needed to stay busy so my husband (Chris) bought me a Cricut Expression and thats how I got into this creativity world. I do everything from Mini Albums to cards.. I also love trying NEW things. Making people smile is what I do. I make banners and cards for the sick children here at Cincinnati Children's Hospital and for the parents at the Ronald Mcdonad House. My blog is http://pinkpolkadotscrapping.blogspot.com so if you want check out all my creations.thats where they are at.. I hope to one day be able to sale my creations.. thats my goal after I get Ethan better!

Tammy Bour

About Tammy:

Hi My name is Tammy Bour. I live in a little community called Kaministiquia in NW Ontario, Canada. I love the outdoors, camping, fishing and doing some gardening plus work full time in a group home with devlopmentally disabled adults.
I have been with my hubby for over 24 yrs now (Where did the time
go?) I have a daughter (17yrs) and also a son (14yrs). I can thank my
mother for getting me in to crafting when we started with card making. I
got into scrapbooking a couple yrs later after hubby and I went way up north
on a kayak excursion and I wanted to scrapbook the pics. I continued with
it and kind of slowed down making cards. I love to make baby and wedding
albums for people. I aqcuired my cricut early 2010 and love to use it. I
have just recently started making 3d items and love it. I have put my
scrapbooking on hold for these. Some people have asked me to make a few
things and I love it. I would like to get into making more party favours,
loot bags, banners and that sort of thing.

Tammy will be posting her projects every other Friday, not only here but also on our Fan Page on FB and on her own Blog at http://anonymouscricuter.blogspot.ca/

 Marji Franklin
About Marji:

I've been paper crafting for close to 20 years, I started out with rubber stamps and have evolved to using my Cricut for most projects now. I love creating and turning a plain sheet of paper into an amazing card, box or 3 dimensional masterpiece. It is my form of therapy, I can escape to my desk and for a few hours get lost in the paper and glue. My husband or 3 year old daughter usually have to come dig me out to eat or remind me they are still in the house, lol.

I have been married for 13 years this October and our daughter Emily is our world and keeps us laughing.

It truly is my passion and I hope you can see that in the projects I share with you.

Marji will be posting her projects every other Wednesday, not only here but also on our Fan Page on FB and on her own Blog at http://www.fstampaholic.blogspot.com/
