Welcome back to the Simply Create Too Challenge Blog. This is our mid-post for Challenge #53 - "Valentine's Day or Use Hearts".
We're highlighting two more of our newest Simply Create Too Design Team members: Kim and Melissa Miranda and their projects for Challenge #53:
Kim says: "I have been married for 23 years and have one daughter who is a senior at Cal State East Bay. I am a preschool teacher. I have been crafting forever but started stamping when my daughter was born and I wanted to make my own baby announcements. I love to scrapbook, sew, quilt and bake in addition to paper crafting. I am very lucky and have my own craft room which my husband calls "Disneyland North". It is so much fun to spread my supplies out and never have to worry about cleaning up until I am ready."
Melissa Miranda says: "I’m so excited to be joining the team at Simply Create Too. Thank you DT for such a warm welcome. I currently live in Northern Ohio after moving six months ago from Southeast New Mexico. Talk about change!!! We are enjoying so many of our new experiences here. I have been married for eleven years to a wonderful man and have three beautiful children. My family is precious and very supportive of my hobby. My husband is glad I have an outlet and my children are always eager to see what I have made. I have been playing around with paper for twenty years off and on now; but it was when I bought my first electronic die-cutting machine and discovered SVG files that I really found my niche in the paper crafting realm. I mostly enjoy making cards and 3D projects, but on occasion I will try a scrapbook page. I look forward to sharing my projects with you and hope that you will be inspired to try a few of them yourself."
