Introducing our Design Team members...

>> Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Hi, my name is Alicia and I am 30 years old. I live on a property near Tamworth in NSW, Australia with my husband Ben and our pets. We moved back home this year to be closer to our family. Prior to this we were living on the Gold Coast for five years and prior to that we were living in Newcastle. I am a primary school teacher and this year I am doing casual teaching which allows me more time for crafting because I don't have as much planning, marking or reporting to do anymore! I have been card-making since 2007 when a friend at work had a Stampin' Up party and I realised how much fun it is to make cards. My favourite stamps are Magnolia stamps and I love to colour with Copic markers. I love hot chocolates and tim-tams, spending time with family and friends, crafting and blogging (of course), shopping, learning new things and being outside in the garden with my pets : )
*****************************************
Hi all, I am Annette, I am 43 years young, have been married for nearly 14 years to my best buddy Edward, we have two children Rosanna 13 and Morgan nearly 12. We have Rusty (German Shepherd X) and 2 rabbits. We emigrated from England to Melbourne nearly five years ago.
Through the years I have done many different crafts but took my card/paper making to a new level when I discovered blogging last year! It has been an AMAZING creative journey, I love to experiment and try out new things, this led to my discovery of copics earlier this year and I’m ADDICTED! Through blogging I have met some amazing talented and inspirational ladies and gents. I then got brave this year and applied to be on a couple of DTs, I was so excited when Sammi took me onboard and ecstatic when she asked me to become permanent.
So looking forward to carrying on my crafting journey here at, Mad for Markers and to be working with these extremely talented ladies. Between us I hope we inspire you all to try something different and spread our addiction for Copics around LOL! Look forward to visiting you all in blog land and to being inspired by your creations too! Take Care xx☺

Cassandra
"Hi my name is Cassie and I am happily married with two kids, Missy Precious and Belle Precious (Labrador kids)! I have been scrapping, cardmaking and papercrafting for two years now, but I definately enjoy creating Beyond The Page projects the most.
I heard about Copic Markers a year ago and did lots of research before giving in and buying some lol. Earlier this year I was accepted to the Melbourne Copic Certification class and had to pinch myself when in there as I couldn't believe they had accepted me! It was the best day of my year!! What can I say, I am hooked and in love with Copics and if your not yet, you will be too!!"

Emma
Hi my name is Emma I am a SAHM to 5 kids. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 10 years this year. I started scrapbooking about 6 years ago, but have only recently gotten into card making and even more recently into the blogging world and I have to say that I am having an absolute ball! So I have to say that I am thrilled to have been asked by Sammi to work with her at Mad for Marker's and can't wait to share with you all my love for copics and I do mean love, they are fantastic! Just wished I owned the whole set....one day hey!

Linda
My name is Linda I'm 38 years old, have been married for 15 years, and have 3 girls aged 14, 12 and 8. We live in the gorgeous Blue Mountains in Katoomba NSW.
I have scrapbooked for 7 years, and only this year have I discovered the world of card making, and colouring images with Copics (which I am totally addicted to). Also discovering the world of blogging, and the friendships that come along the way!! Any free time I get (which is usually late at night) I spend playing with my copics and stamps.
I am thrilled to be a part of the Mad for Markers DT - and making new friends as well.

Marcia
I’m Marcia and I live in Perth, Western Australia. I am married, have one Princess and work part time. I am also the owner of The Stamp Spot, an online store bringing overseas stamp companies to Australia. We currently have The Greeting Farm, Stampavie, My Favorite Things, Stampin Bella, Inky Impressions and Unity Stamps in store. Apart from the stamps, there are heaps of papers, ribbons and more.
I stamp, I scrap and I love to colour images. I started colouring when I became a SU demo a couple of years back and since leaving them, I went looking for something better to colour with – enter Copics. I’ve been like a kid in a lolly shop, so many colours, so many choices. I now understand about finding something good, and not wanting to go back!

Melissa
Hi Everyone, I am 35 years old. Have been married to my wonderful husband for 10 years and we have two children, Lachlan 6 and Joshua 3. We live in the beautiful Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, NSW. I have been stamping for over 15 years, however my addiction to Copic Markers started in June 2010. Colouring has been a great stress reliever for me and I have enjoyed creating many cards as well as using my airbrush system to create altered flowers and backgrounds. Happy Colouring & Take Care

Mel B
Hi my name is Mel and I live on a property in Central Queensland. I have been married to Sam for 5 years now and we have to beautiful boys, Cooper who is nearly 4 and Zach who has just turned 1. I began scrapping about 8 years ago and was very focussed on layouts untill I got a little bored with them and tried my hand at cards. I fell in love with being able to create little pieces of art that I can give away and share. Then I found the wonderful world of Copic Markers at the beginning of this year and haven't looked back. I love being able to colour, watching my art grow and make things come to life on paper. I love all types of stamps and my collections just seems to keep growing and growing.

Michelle
Hi, I'm Michelle. I am a SAHM with three gorgeous boys aged 7, 6 and 4 and a half. My husband and I have been married for 8 years and we live in Cairns Far North Queensland.
I love craft of any kind, I've done a bit of painting and drawing but I really enjoy paper crafts. I started making cards around the beginning of 2010 after I received my first set of stamps from my Mum. I started my blog around the same time and haven't looked back!. My wonderful husband gave me my first Copics for my 40th Birthday back in June and well, I have pretty
much become hooked on them since.
I am so excited to be working alongside such talented ladies on the Mad for Markers team and I look forward to sharing my love of Copics and meeting lots of new blogging buddies during my time on the team.

Rachael
Hi, I’m Rachael and I live in Western Sydney with my man wonderfully supportive and hardworking man Matty and our cheeky son B, who is 3 ½. At the moment I am working part time and enjoy spending time with my family creating memories. I have been Scrapbooking and Cardmaking for about 6 years now, and do so, so that in years to come we can look back, remember and reminisce about all of life’s moments.
Earlier this year I discovered Copics and have been totally addicted to them ever since. My collection has grown quickly and I enjoy the versatility of Copics for both Scrapbooking and Cardmaking.
I am excited to be joining the M4M’s design team, and being a part of this amazingly talented group, and hopefully inspiring others along the way.

Sammi
Hi I am Sammi and I am Mad for Markers, hence when I started my online business selling Copic Markers I decided that Mad for Markers would be a great name to have! LOL! I am married to a wonderfiul man, Guy who is very supportive :) I Have always been into Art and Craft as long as I can remember. My passion for Copics started a couple of years ago when I was enthralled by the world of stamping/ blogging and wanted to try out these wonderful markers people were raving about overseas and that was only the beginning.. I am still learning and experimenting and LOVE using my Copics. I also love helping others learn how to use them as well as possible!

Sheree
Hi I'm Sheree from Sydney NSW...I'm 33 years old and mum to Kaitlyn who is 10 years old ... I've been scrapping and card making now for around 9 years and totally addicted to it all but if I have to be honest I probably am more addicted to the shopping part LOL... I am totally consumed at the moment with copic markers and what you can do with them not only for cards but scrapping as well. Looking forward to being apart of the Mad For Markers Team...

*****************************************
Suzanne
Hi my name is Suzanne and I am a full time Administration Manager by day and addicted crafter by night. I am married to a wonderfully supportive hubby who totally indulges my passion for papercrafting. I could easily say I am totally addicted to crafting, stamping and colouring in particular and spend every spare moment creating (although life seems to have a funny habit of getting in the way). I have been crafting all my life it seems, but starting papercrafting about 6 years ago and just totally fell in love with the craft. Around 1 year ago I discovered Copic markers, wow I absolutely love them. I spent many an hour practicing and practicing and I still practice. Copics immediately became my favourite medium for colouring. Have been slowly buying my Copics and my collection has grown somewhat, but there is always room for more LOL.
*****************************************
Tracey
I am Tracey Feeger. 35yr old mother of three kids. I discovered cardmaking in November 2008 and decided to start looking for SU demonstrators at the start of 2009 and discovered the blogging world and everything in it. I researched what colouring mediums to use and got some copics. I have used Copic markers from day 1 and haven't looked back. I want them all but only have half of all the colours. Hope to some day display them all. LOL. I am very happy to accept Sammi's invitation to join her DT and look forward to showing you all her great products.
