Little Scraps of Heaven Designs DT Reveal

First off, Tricia, Leann, and I (Kristy) would like everyone to know that we were amazed at all the entries for the DT call. It was so very hard to choose only 4 applicants to be a part of the design team. There were so many talented women that applied, which made it terribly difficult to choose. We went back and forth for days trying to make a decision. So, with that said we would now like to proudly introduce to you the new Little Scraps of Heaven Designs design team.

Owner & Designer

Hi my name is Tricia and I am the owner of Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.  I have been scrapbooking several years now and love creating works of art to preserve my precious memories.  I started my scrapbook career selling my paper piecings and layouts on ebay.  I then started selling patterns of my paper piecings on etsy.  Soon after my little business started to grow and I created my website, Little Scraps of Heaven Designs
I love creating new patterns and thank God everyday for blessing me with this talent.
I am a mom of two teenage girls, 17 and 14, and have been happily married to my husband for almost 19 years.  I am a WAHM and feel very fortunate to be able to be home to hang out with my girls while they are still home.

Here is a little about Leann
I am married to my wonderful husband Steve, who is very supportive of my crafting & work. We have 3 kids & 3 grandkids. I have been scrapbooking for 10 years now. I love nothing more than to take a pattern & totally make something different than what it was intended for. It's like a challenge to me. I sell my piecings & scrapbook pages online, & I teach classes at my local scrapbook store, where they also sell my paper piecings. It is an honor to be a part of LSHD Design Team! I feel so blessed to be able to stay at home & do what I love most for a living!

A little about Kristy
My name is Kristy and I am a WAHM of two boys. These two boys are what makes my world go 'round, and they are the inspiration behind all that I do. I have loved art and crafting from a very young age. Art is a great passion of mine even though I do not partake in that passion with a sketch pad and pencil, I do, however, use my passion with paper and scissors. I love to create layouts, paper piecings, and everything else that comes along in the scrapbooking world. I particularly love paper piecing. From the minute I tried paper piecing for the very first time I loved it. I'm hooked and wouldn't have it any other way!

A little about Emily
I'm a small town country girl and a stay at home mommy to my beautiful 3 year old daughter, Reagan. I recently married my childhood sweetheart, Brandon, and we live in Southern Ohio with our children. I enjoy scrapbooking and sharing my creations with others. I started scrapbooking a little over 10 years ago, wow, things have come a long way since then! I started out cutting and pasting my photos to construction paper, which now I have traded in for a much more expensive substitute! I'm a paper addict, some might also call me a paper hoarder. My favorite scrapbooking brand is Basic Grey. I love the vintage look with a modern twist that their lines display. I very rarely scrap my own photos, I started selling my work online a little over 4 years ago and that's where I am today. I love to make mini albums as well as cards and favors. There is something about a smaller canvas that draws me in. I recently started adding LSHD patterns to my albums and became addicted! It seems like every day that I go into my studio, my work evolves into something new and exciting. I guess that's just part of the whole creative process! :-)

A little about Janet
Hi everyone! My name is Janet and I'm at stay-at-home mom of two little boys ages 3 and 5. I am married to my best friend now for almost 7 years. We live the beautiful Pacific Northwest in Washington State. Scrapbooking is my creative outlet from taking care of the home and kids all day. I have been scrapbooking in some form or another for as long as I can remember. As a small child, I would make albums of cut-outs from magazines about movie stars, had a sticker album, poster collages of my dreams and wishes of the future and a fashion scrapbook album. My inspiration for scrapbooking comes from my love of creating, photography, and my two sons. My passion is being able to document my life and memories for my children. When I am not scrapbooking I enjoy books, love cooking, baking, camping and traveling.  I am thrilled to be a part of this talented team! I am looking forward to inspiring all of you with my creations and being inspired by all of you while you join me on this amazing adventure!

Here is a little about Kristi 
My love for crafting started at an early age. When I was just a little one I used to spend hours watching my Mom craft. I was amazed at all the detail work she did. I would go with her to craft shows and help her and my Dad set it up. My dad introduced me to antiques or "junque" as we call it! I love collecting antique decor, it has so much character and I get many ideas, designs and color inspiration from them that I tie into my paper crafting.
I just recently discovered MTC software and lets just say my Paper Crafting will never be the same! There is so much more you can do using these softwares for the Cricut. I was so excited to discover Little Scraps of Heaven Designs, I found every kind of paper piecing I was looking for to use in my paper crafting, these adorable paper piecings that Tricia creates are unique and surely one of a kind! I am so excited to be part of LSHD DT! I hope my creations inspire you! Please stop over and visit my blog to see more creations using LSHD!
