Challenge 28- Saying Hello

Not only do we have a new challenge for the new year, but we also have a new design team for 2014! We thought a saying hello theme was perfect for this challenge to introduce you to the girls and show off their amazing talent. Let's get started.

Ashley Marcu

I am 33 and a stay at home Mom. I live in a suburb of Seattle Washington with my husband and three kids; Nick (6), Rachel (4) and Ben (almost 2). Paper crafting is my main hobby and I love creating every day! Over the past year or so I have focused on magazine publications. I also design for Bella Blvd and Paper Smooches. I enjoy playing with my kids, watching football (go Seahawks!) and soccer (go Sounders!) and being outside.

Betty J.

I’m 30 years old and I started with the crafts in February 2012 and I became increasingly addicted to it, that’s my biggest hobby. Furthermore, I still love to read books and meet with friends. I live in a house with my grandma in Germany (Bayern). I'm so excited to be a part of the LT Deasign Team.

Heather Ruwe
Hello. My name is Heather Ruwe and I'm 33 years old and live in Cincinnati, Ohio. I'm a stay at home mom and feel so blessed that I have that opportunity. I've been married to my best friend (Ted) for nine year and we have two sons, Alex and Aiden. When I'm not creating in my craft room or just hanging out with my family, I'm usually watching really bad reality t.v., party planning, organizing, or pinning on Pinterest. I feel so honored to be a part of the Little Tangles Design Team.

Jessica Pascarella

My name is Jessica Pascarella from Pearland, Texas, USA. I am a SAHM of 3 wonderful kids.  My main love is card-making. But have started to expand into scrapbooking and altered items.  My style is mainly Clean and Simple (CAS), but I love to challenge myself to try new styles as well as new techniques.  My favorite stamping technique is paper-piecing. I am super excited to be a part of the Little Tangles Team!

Tracy Ercole

Tracy Ercole
Hello, my name is Tracy Ercole, I’m 42 and live in Tasmania, Australia with my husband and our 4 gorgeous boys who range in age from 16 to 2!  As well as being a mum, I work full-time as a police officer so the household is pretty busy at times.  I started scrapbooking initially but soon found card making which I love, and I started blogging not long after in 2011.  If I’m not crafting you will normally find me organizing my supplies, reading blogs and doing a spot of pinning. I'm so happy to have another opportunity to be a part of the Little Tangles design team, and to be creating with Danielle’s gorgeous stamps.
