new projects by Lynn and Candy!

We have two new projects for you to enjoy!!!!
These come at a great time for your summer pictures.

Meet Candy Rosenberg
My name is Candy Rosenberg and I have been paper crafting all of my life. My mom tells me that I was born with scissors in hands. I am lucky to work with some of the best manufacturers in the country, Graphic 45, Tattered Angels, Copic and now Punky Sprouts! I love to take paper crafting to the next level, using a variety of products and techniques and then teaching this to others. Never say to me that you are NOT creative without being ready to get your hands dirty with paint and ink!
Visit my blog at to see what I am up to along with upcoming classes and appearances. Happy Crafting!

Meet Lynn Reaney
My name is Lynn. I live in the Gresham, Oregon, a suburb of Portland with my husband of almost 12 years Tadd and two kids Isaac (6) & Erin (3). I love being a stay-at-home mom and being with my family. My husband is a high school teacher so we enjoy summers off and love to go camping and explore the outdoors. In the 12 years we have been married, we have visited 18 National Parks! Before the birth of our son, I was a 6th grade teacher and now enjoy teaching scrapbooking and crafts to kids and adults. I enjoy all papercrafts, sewing, photography and soap-making. I have always been crafty with a little help from my mom who always had some sort of project to keep us busy. I started scrapbooking about 15 years ago when I made an album of a trip to Disneyland, but really got into it after the birth of my son. I love using lots of color on my layouts and experimenting with different techniques although I think I have a fairly simple style and strive to make my photos what stands out on my layouts. I am thrilled to be a part of the design team here at Punky Sprouts and look forward to working with this amazing team!

Thanks for looking!!!

New projects by Carrie and Nathalie!!

xcited!! We have two new projects by two of our new designers!!

Meet: Carrie Ferrier

Hi, I’m Carrie. I live in Fort Wayne, IN with my high school sweetheart husband of 27 years. I have 2 grown sons and as of July ’09, a beautiful daughter in law. I love to organize, take long bike rides, and take my Nikon D80 almost everywhere I go. In the past year I’ve dug into learning more and more about photography and have to say I’m having a ball scheduling photo shoots with friends and family members. It’s no surprise that my passion as an adult is scrapbooking since as a little girl my 3 favorite things were collecting pretty stationery, taking pictures of everything imaginable around the house, and writing letters. Scrapbooking is a mix of all those things for me; journaling, product and photos. My style of creating is linear with a little bit of funky added. My favorite part of creating is putting the final touches of details on a page or project. I love making those details enhance my photos. I am thrilled and honored to be a part of the Punky Sprouts design team. I can’t wait to dig in and create with these amazingly fun albums.

This is her awesome project using Punky Sprouts Alfalfa and Graphic 45

project out for publication!!!!

New projects by Charity and Noel!!

We got new projects for you from two of our awesome new designers!!!

The first one is from Noel Culbertson
In case you haven't met he, here's a little bit about her:
The owner of a small store worth of scrapbook supplies, Noel is known for her endless spunk, photos of her two girls that look like twins (but are not), scrapbook pages and projects that range from shabby chic to simple and graphic to digital, and a coffee habit that could support a small country. A finalist in Creating Keepsakes Magazine's Scrapbooker of the Year in 2007, Noel has was a contributor for Jessica Sprague's book, Computer Tricks 2, and has worked with Creating Keepsakes, Paper Crafts and Memory Makers magazines. A proud Navy wife and mother of two daughters, Noel enjoys camping, shopping and avoiding laundry on Camano Island in Washington State.

Here's her project that she did with Punky Sprouts album with My Little Shoebox.
Love the colors and how she used the clear page!

The next project is by Charity Hassel.
Here's a little bit about her:
Hi, I'm Charity and I am 35 years old. I have been married to my honey, Brian, for 7 years. We have a 5 year old named Alexander and Audrey Marie who is 3yr old. I work one shift a week as a RN in the Surgical ICU at Mayo. The rest of my days are spent making sippy cups, playing playdough and trying to scrap during naptimes! One of my favorite things on the planet is chocolate covered popcorn (I/m a chocoholic)! I have been scrapbooking for nearly 7 years now, but became "serious" about it around 6 years ago. My style varies, but I love trying to use product in unique ways. In addition to scrapbooking I enjoy cardmaking and other paper crafts.

She also worked with My Little Shoebox.
Love this project as well!!
Check out how she used watercolors to create a rainbow and the sunshine on the canvas pages!

Thanks for sharing your project girls!!!
