Hi, I'm Angie. I've been married for 19 years, going on eternity ;) and we have 6 beautiful kids. We currently live in Wasilla AK, thanks to the Navy. We are in the process of adjusting to civilian life. I am in the process of building a farm that I have always wanted. As for being crafty I love trying new things. I like recycling stuff and using the last bit of scrap paper or ribbon possible. I'm a scrapbooker at heart, that is where it all started. I fell in love with my cricut...and then my expression...and then my gypsy. Along with that I'm learning to spin wool, crochet and hopefully knit. I like to make jewelry (mainly just stringing beads...moved up from maccaroni ;) ) and then anything else that I can get my hands into. Basically I'm a getting back to my roots that I had left for way to long, and loving every minute of it.


Hi everyone, my name is Rebecca Maddux, but everyone calls me Becka and my blog is: . I am so excited to have been asked to continue on the Sweet Sassy Diva design team. I had so much fun the 1st time around. Here is a little about me. I have two beautiful children Cooper and Kayla and have been with my wonderful husband for 14 years. We live in Reno, NV and love all the mountains surrounding us. I work full time, but try to craft as much as I can in my spare time.

I'm a wife, mom, teacher and crafter who lives in Louisville, Ky.  I love to read, knit and scrapbook whenever I find the time.  My blog:

My name is Dawn Lisinski aka NurseViper on the Cricut MB's and my blog address is

I am a mother to 5 (soon to be 7) and grandma to 13 (soon to be 11--see increase in children LOL). I am also an RN who is currently a SAHM and wife to my wonderful husband of 27 years.

I started out scrapping with a shoe box of stickers and some 8x11 papers but then watched that silly infomercial back in 2007 and DH said I bet you could save on stickers with that LOL little did he know how much it would end up costing.

I mainly scrapbook but also make cards and recently been into altering projects as gifts for others.  I can range from simple to complex projects and I like to make things that can look like they took alot of time and money, but can give the viewers a way to get these done quickly and with very little expense.

I live in Wisconsin with my husband and 3 cats (who rule the house) and I have 3 grown children. I started scrap booking about 5 years ago. A friend started it and was showing me what she had done and that was all it took… I was hooked! My Mom had been a card maker for several years before that and she got me hooked on making cards. Which is really a good thing since she doesn’t make cards anymore, she just calls me and tells me what she needs. She has an embroidery machine (s!) now, but I’m steering clear of that, I’m having too much fun with paper crafting! My blog:


Hello everyone!!! Jen here from . I just want to first say welcome to all our new faces in the SweetSassyDiva Design Team! This will be my 2nd run in this DT and I have to say I love it! I am a domestic goddess in the wonderful state of Alaska. I have been married for 13 years and have 2 amazing kids. Eliasson is 12 and Allison is 10. We spend our days in the summer going to their sports events, hunting, fishing, gold prospecting and riding our 4-wheelers. In the winter we are just as busy ice fishing, riding our snow machines, going to the Iditarod and hanging out with our family and friends. Speaking of friends one of our fellow DT sisters is a great friend of mine that I craft with all the time. That's Angie!! We live about 10 miles apart and find any excuse to craft or just hang out. I am a crafter of all sorts. I love to paper craft and you could almost call me a professional card maker as I sell my cards. I also sew, crochet, wood work, candle make...basically if I see it and like it I will do it :D I also fill my time baking and cooking for my fabulous family. We also have 2 sweet fur babies who are Pembroke Welsh Corgis. Thanks for stopping in today and keep your eye out for some spectacular projects that are bound to blow you away! Have a great day!  

Hi! I am so happy to be apart of the SweetSassyDiva Design Team! I love to create and make fun things for my friends and family! I love to learn new techniques and share them with others. I teach full day Kindergarten for my “day” job and create in my spare time. I am married to my best friend who supports my crafting hobby as well as my teaching needs! We currently have two girl German Shorthairs that are a huge part of our family. My blog address:

I am 30 years old, I have a fabulous husband and three awesome kids. I purchased my first Cricut machine in 2008 and fell right into paper crafting. I bought it to help with party decor as I was an avid event planner. Now, I make cards and gifts. I very rarely make layouts, only when I have the "right" picture. I love to spend crafting time with my kids, help them with school projects, classroom party favors, or just for fun. Papercrafting is a HUGE stress reliever for me, I can use my imagination and there are no limits....only in the pocket :) I have been publised in a number of issues of the Cricut Magazine.  My blog is

I really love making cards and learning new techniques, sometimes my mind freezes and I look forward to being part of the SweetSassyDiva design team. I don't really think I have one type of style, I like to play around with everything. I love to look at others for inspiration, and I hope that I am creating some too!!

I am married and have 3 dirty, stinky boys ages 21, 16 & 5. I run a home daycare and work very part-time at Michaels where I teach scrapbooking and Gypsy/Cricut classes. I have been scrapbooking for 14 years. I find myself doing a lot of baseball, bowling and little boy pages which is not as fun as the flowery, frilly girl pages that I squeeze in when I can. I use my Gypsy for the majority of my projects, but I also have a cuttlebug, an Imagine, a Bind It All, some punches, some stamps and lots and lots of paper!! Did I mention that I have lots of paper?? I mostly scrapbook 2 page layouts, but I also make mini albums, notepads, cards and other fun paper projects.  My blog is

Tina Gale

My name is Tina Gale and I grew up with a very crafty family so I have always kept a memento album and made things in my spare time. It wasn't until after I was married that I found my true love which is decorative painting and then I moved into scrapbooking. It now consumes my life. I'm very fortunate to have married a wonderful man that indulges my every whim and encourages me to create. I'm a homeschool mom to two wonderful children. My oldest is now in college and my youngest is in high school. My family is truly my life's dream and I can't imagine a more wonderful life than I live and the joy of scrapbooking it. My blog:
