Phyllis Fernandez - DT Coordinator

I'm Phyllis Fernandez from Arizona, I am married to my best friend and we have 3 amazing kids. I am a stay at home Mom who loves to bake and cook when I'm not crafting. I started card making in 2005 with simple designs and then was hooked on scrapbooking after my sister and I attended Creating Keepsakes Event. I love creating cards, tags, ATC's, Scrapbook layout pages, mixed media canvas' and from time to time I love to create albums. I love anything papercrafting! I'm not sure what my "style" but I love lots of texture! I'm a quiet person and when I'm creating I feel am letting go and exploding my emotions into my creations whether they are simple or filled with detail, textures and dimension. I am humbled to be a part of this talented design team for Art Anthology. I'm looking forward to creating and inspiring other crafters using Art Anthology products! Happy crafting!

 

Jenn DuBell

HI! My name is Jenn DuBell a.k.a. Yvonne Bijoux. I live in the beautiful green state of Oregon, I am a mother of two wonderful grown kids, engaged to a wonderful man, and grandmother to three beautiful grandsons! I started scrapbooking years ago and have enjoyed drawing and painting since I was a child. I picked up scrapbooking again a few years ago when I became a grandma and it has just progressed into much more. I now love all paper crafting from cards and scrapping to tags and mini books! I also enjoy mixed media and altering things. I love vintage inspiration, shabby chic, steampunk, and modern. I am very honored and excited to join the Art Anthology team!

I hope I can inspire others to have fun, get messy, and create beautiful things!

 

 

Irina Astapovskaya

Hi! My name is Irina Astapovskaya. I'm 32 years old and I live in Vladikavkaz, Caucasus, Russia, with my husband and my boy. I have been scrapbooking for a little over a two years. Scrapbooking became not only a hobby but a great part of my life! I like to experiment and to make projects in different styles but my favorite is mixed-media. I adore mixed-media techniques because they give me the freedom to express myself and appear to be the best tool for the realization of creative potential. I like to make lots of layers and add different interesting small details. My favourite type of craft are layouts 30*30cm and canvases. But when I feel an urge to make something small and quick, I make cards and tags. I hope during my time here at Art Anthology, I’ll be able to pass on something new to you.

Toni Burks

Hi there, I'm Toni Burks from sunny California. Mother of a beautiful daughter and my four legged little boy named Bubba. My adventure with scrapbooking began probably 25 years ago when my daughter was very active in sports and I wanted to be able to keep all those precious memories alive. Through the years my style has definitely evolved due to the plethora of talented & inspirational artists and amazing products that are available for us to enjoy. I love texture, splashes of color, a taste of edginess but with a “well loved” vintage feel. The last several years I have really enjoyed getting messy with mixed media. I love the free expression it allows. I have been known to pick up items off the ground to use in my art…. I love to use the unexpected in my projects so altered art is also a favorite of mine. I am passionate about pretty things and not so pretty things, I love ruffles but also grunge, I want my house in order but my studio table is a (beautiful) mess. So turn on some music, get a cup of coffee and let’s get messy with our art.

 

 

Valerie Andrieux

"French designer, mom of two, I started scrapbooking more than 10 years ago when I lived Texas. I did move a lot since then, but my crafty stash is always traveling with me so I can create where ever I am.
Fussy cutting and bright colors are my favorite things in crafting, but mixed media has grow in my heart too... I love create scrapbook layouts, cards, altered objects and canvas. This hobby is now a big part of my life and I try to create something everyday. I share my work as often as I can on different social medias (bonjourscrap is my nickname), and I can wait to share my projects with Art Anthology products !"

 

 

 

Ellie Knol

I am Ellie Knol-Groenveld. Iwas born in Brasil, lived there for 9 years, when we moved to South Africa. At age 23 I moved to the Netherlands, where I married the love of my life. We’ve got 4 children and one son in law.  We will be celebrating our 30th. wedding anniversary in, 2017.  Where has time gone? HAPPY! I am a christian…
I started stamping about 7 years ago, after I’ve been watercoloring for about 12 years. I think I finally got to my ‘own’ style.  
What’s my style? I think others will mention my use of color, my very ‘own’ style with stamped collages, my preference of nature stamps; I get positive comments on these issues.  
I LOVE to play with paper, stamps and color! It’s the most enjoyable craft in the world, for sure! I think of myself as just one more crafter who likes to get messy and get lost in creating a happy mess.
