Kendra – Wisconsin (Lead Designer)

kendraBio2.jpgMy name is, Kendra Sand, I live in Wisconsin with my high school sweetheart and our two fun energetic kids!!! I’m a SAHM in winter and work landscaping in summer! I have a passion for flowers!! As well as crafting! I started scrapping 16 years ago as both my husband and I raced at a local race track and I wanted to keep track of our wins and photos. From that it grew into a HUGE obsession! I started scrapping everything and then just over 9 years ago got into making all my own cards! My day is not complete, unless I am able to sit down in my craft area for a while to do something crafty! I would love inspiring others. I have a wide range of styles depending on my mood and the products being used. Sometimes it can be clean and simple or cutesy or chic! I just love to create!!

Melody – Ohio

MelodyBioPhoto2.pngHi!  I am Melody Blake, and I live in Pataskala, Ohio, with my craft-enabling husband of thirty-eight years.  We have two grown sons and have enjoyed many adventures related to the amazingly diverse interests and careers of these two fabulous young men!  I discovered the Dare 2B Artzy stamps at a local scrapbook store about a year ago, and it was love at first sight!  Since I have recently retired after thirty-seven years as an educator (reading specialist, second grade teacher, and supervisor of talented and gifted programs), I have some time to play!  The D2BA stamps and papers make creating so much fun, and I am elated to be joining the design team!  Happy crafting!

Vicki - Arizona

VickiBioPhoto.pngI'm Vicki Dutcher, and I have been stamping now for 20+ years.  I live in Arizona, with the fabulous sun, son and DH.  I am a Barista at Starbucks.  In my spare time, I stamp.  That's it, just stamp. I love this hobby - between getting to work with fabulous images, and meeting some of the best people around, well, it doesn't get much better then that!  I'm looking forward to getting  back into designing with D2BArtzy products.

Michelle - Iowa

MichelleBioPhoto.pngHi! Michelle Houghton here.  I am the wife to an amazing husband and the mother of two beautiful girls in Iowa.  I am a busy stay-at-home mom, teaching doodling and Copic classes both on-line and across the US and Canada.  Prior to motherhood, I was an art teacher and I love being able to continue sharing my art through card making and scrapbooking techniques.  I have been scrapbooking for about 20 years and coloring with Copic markers for the last 10 years.  When I first tried Copics I fell in love and have since gotten both my Certification and Intermediate Certification from Imagination International Inc., the United States distributor of Copic Markers. After about 5 years of teaching Copic classes on-line I began teaching for III as a Regional Instructor, I also run their Copic In The Craft Room site and help create new curriculum for their Certification Team.  Bottom line: I love to teach! Teaching live and on-line has been an amazing adventure!

Pam - Ohio

PAMBioPhoto.jpgI was born in Akron, Ohio. We moved down to the Dayton area when I was in high school. I went to Ohio University and got my teaching degree. I got married to my high school sweetheart who happened to live right across the street! We moved cross country to Oregon, Washington then settled in Southern CA for 38 years. I taught in Laguna Beach until I retired. After hubby retired we moved to South Carolina to be closer to family.

I have been stamping for over 20 years. I got really hooked when I went to a card making class. From that day forward my wallet became very light!  I enjoy all styles of card making. I can't really put my finger on my style but I will say I usually like lots of layering. I can spend hours in my woman's cave making cards but I do have to feed the husband on occasion! Card making is my hobby and I also love to go to church, take driving trips, and go out to dinner with the hubby.

Tonya – Colorado

TonyaBioPhoto.jpgHi! My name is Tonya Meyer and I live in a suburb of Denver, CO with the beautiful, snowcapped Rocky Mountains as a backdrop. I’m married to my wonderful husband of 5 years and although we don’t have children, we do have two crazy dogs and a tormented cat – our fur-kids. By day I am a Business Operations Manager for a Spanish Language TV & Radio group in Denver where I’ve worked for 25 years. By night I’m a crafty night owl finding enjoyment in being able to bring images to life through stamping, coloring and die cutting. My medium of choice is Copic markers; however I do enjoy learning new techniques, testing out new products and playing with new mediums. Most of all, I love being able to share my finished cards through my blog and even sending my handmade cards to friends and family to bring a smile to their face and brighten their day. I’m over the moon about being part of the Dare 2 B Artzy Design Team and thrilled at the opportunity to share my projects with all of you.

Karen – California

KarenBioPhoto.jpgMy name is Karen Nofziger and I am a ‘second-time-around’ happily married momma of four fabulous young men. They are 22, 21, 21 and 21. (Two are biologically mine; and he has a set of twins.) The dear hubs and I are super proud of them all. My family is wild and sweet and give me lots to scrap about. We recently adopted another young guy, he’s about a year old, is grey and black and has the cutest pointy ears. He barks a lot, but we love him! By day, I manage arts departments at a local university. In my spare time, I love to craft and have been at it for a little more than 20 years. Those old scrapbooks sure are funny with lots of cut triangles and stickers, but I treasure them dearly. I primarily craft cards now, and my style tends to lean towards the cute. I love to embellish, love to color, and love to add just a wee bit of glitz. My hubs and I also enjoy boating, reading, and hanging out with friends. I am super excited to be part of the Dare2BArtzy Design Team.

Chris – Illinois

ChrisBioPhoto.jpgHi, I am Chris Pozzi, and I have been scrapping for over 12 years now and am still buried in pictures to scrap. Maybe that is because I take hundreds and hundreds of pictures during vacations. While I started as a scrapbooker, I quickly developed a love for stamping. I am a working mom to 3 active kiddies and happily married to my high school sweetheart. They all keep me pretty busy, so scrapping and stamping are how I relax and make time for myself! I love creating cards and adding stamps to all my projects. I love to find different ways to use a stamp set. I also love all thinks inky. I am so excited to part of the Dare 2B Artzy Design Team. Happy Stamping!
