It is with great pleasure that I have the honor of introducing the newest members of the Wplus9 Design Team. These ladies are simply AMAZING. I have admired their work for some time now and I feel so lucky to have them joining the the team. Both of these ladies are HOT, HOT, HOT and blowing up the blogosphere and newstands! Please help me welcome Cristina Kowalczyk and Jean Martin.
Cristina is the author of two books – a short story collection called Come Together, Fall Apart and a novel entitled The World in Half. She’s currently working on her second novel while also taking care of her 4-year-old daughter and being a wife to her amazingly supportive husband. On top of that, she tries to squeeze in cardmaking time every day, and you can find her work in recent issues of Paper Crafts and CARDS. Cristina discovered cardmaking about a year ago when she went to a Stampin’ Up! stamp camp and hasn’t looked back since. A self-proclaimed stamper at heart, she has a CAS style, although she loves looking at lots of different styles – there’s always so much to learn! Cristina lives in the western suburbs of Chicago.
Cristina's unmistakable clean and graphic style is truly something to envy.
Jean Martin lives in Long Island, New York. Originally from the Philippines, she came here in 2008 to marry her best friend, Ren. Happily married for 2 years and 8 months now, they are owned by 3 cats who keep them very busy. An Office Manager at their family-run veterinary hospital, Jean has always wanted to try her hand at graphic design. She started blogging and card making January of last year. Scrapbooking provided a gateway into paper crafts, but didn't hold her interest for long. Cardmaking hooked her permanently. Through joining challenges online, she was scooped up to join the Design Teams of some of the best challenge sites in blogland. She is totally enjoying her new hobby and I hopes to be doing so for a long, long time. You can find her at http://www.stampin-scrapper.blogspot.com.
Jean's soft and romantic shabby chic style is one that, I myself, simply love. Her use of color and embellishments is truly stunning.
Welcome to the team ladies, we're going to have a fabulously inspired time!
