17turtles Design Team Introduction

Today, I am introducing the three talented designers who are part of the very first 17turtles Digital Cut Files Design Team! So, without further ado, here is a bit more about them, a sample of their project style and a link to their personal blogs where you will find more of their amazing creations!
And don't forget to leave a comment on yesterday's blog post for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the 17turtles Shop!

Katrina Hunt 17turtles Design Team Member

Hi! I'm Katrina Hunt and I live in Midwest USA! I am currently owned by four Cardigan Welsh Corgis, who appear in my layouts from time to time (or A LOT of the time)! I’ve discovered as an adult that I love to create and craft. I was never the artsy type while growing up, unless you count cutting my doll’s hair. I have been scrapbooking since February 2009, when I decided to make a mini album for a friend. I discovered that I loved it! Well, let’s just say after that I went nuts with the paper, scissors, and glue. I love color, the more the better. To define my style is hard, as I do what makes me happy. I like to scrap everyday life and things, you never know what the subject of my project might be!

Monique Liedtke 17turtles Design Team Member

Hi, I’m Monique Liedtke and I live in The Netherlands with my husband, 3 kids (Manon 18, Timothy 15 and Mats 10) and our Cocker Spaniel, Jippie. I started scrapbooking about 11 years ago and am totally addicted, there’s nothing I’d rather do! I don’t have my own scrap room, but I guess you could say I claimed just about the whole house! I would love to spend every day scrapping from morning till night, especially as I’m so very fortunate to work (have worked) for some of my favorite manufacturers in the scrapbook industry: Doodlebug Design, Imaginisce, Pretty Little Studio, Ruby Rock-It, Epiphany Crafts and to be on the design teams of both Scrapbook Magazine UK as well as SG CREATE Magazine. But alas, that’s not possible and so I work part-time in a small HR office in town as well.

The reasons I love this fabulous hobby are that I preserve our memories, that I’ve made so many new friends and that it helps clearing my head in my busy and hectic life: when I scrap I forget everything and anything.

Suzanna Lee 17turtles Design Team Member

I am Suzanna Lee, wife to Michael and Mummy to Nikolas and Mia. These 3 are not only my life but the subjects of all things crafty. Scrapbooking is not only my creative outlet but a means to preserving my insanity (and memories)! Equally important to me is the photography. I spend as much time with my Nikon as I do at my scrappy desk. When not with my family or scrapbooking, I work part time as a Physical Therapist. Somebody has to support this addiction! I love what I do and love being able to use both sides of my brain equally! I am thrilled to be joining Juliana and 17Turtles for this FIRST term!

I know some of you are wondering if I had a DT call and you missed it, but I didn't have a call. Since this is a new venture for me, I wanted to keep it small and see how it goes. In the future I may have a call or even add to the Design Team. If you are especially interested in guest blogging on 17turtles, please feel free to contact me!
