Kassidy Thomas

Hi, my name is Kassidy and I am so super excited to be a part of the eyelet outlet design team.
I enjoy crafting and sharing my projects with others.  I am addicted to my Cricut cutting machine
as well as my brads and outlets of course :)   I can't wait to show you some fun projects I have
in mind with products for the Eyelet Outlet. 

Kristine Berc

My name is Kristine Berc and I currently live in central Wyoming with my wonderful husband, Dan, our amazing baby girl, Allison, and our two fluffy kitties.  I’m very blessed to have recently gone from being a full-time career girl to a stay-at-home mommy working outside of my home only part-time.  Scrapbooking and card making have been a large part of my life for the past several years.  I find so much happiness in paper crafting!  Very few days go by where I’m not doing something related to this hobby.  I love so many things about it, from having a meaningful creative outlet to gaining so many wonderful friends and experiences along the way.  I’m thrilled to be a part of the team and look forward to lots of inspiration and fun!

Nicole Brenna

My name is Nicole...  I am from California but I live in Norway above the Arctic Circle and travel back to  California as much as possible    I am married to a pilot and we have a beautiful three year old daughter.  Right now I am a stay at home mom and I love it!.  I have a true passion to create... I love scrapbooking, painting and sewing.  I have pretty much been scraping as long as I can remember.  I still have my first scrapbook I made when I was about 8.  It is a book full of trinkets from summer camp and very odd pictures (people's legs, tree trunks, and the ground). My scrapbooking skills have certainly grown since then...  

Creating things and being artistic is just part of me and something that I have to do... I find it so much fun and never plan to stop....  I am really excited to be part of Eyelet Outlet's Design Team and can't wait to share  projects with you!   I would love to have you stop by my personal blog and say hi

Peral Liu

My name is Pearl , mommy to 2 wonderful kiddos - Deborah, 16 and John Ross ,13,
 living on the sunny little island of Singapore .
I first started scrapbooking after my wedding in 1993 , 
without using any acid free products .
There were very few acid free products available then here . 
Needless to say , that album is now yellow with age !
After the birth of my daughter in 1995, I started cardmaking via punchart and acquired the tools , punches and papers in the hopes that they would be useful for my kids at the right age. 
Well, I’m still the main user of all that product and tools today !

 From 2006, onwards ,there was such a shift in products available in the papercraft industry and I started using more scrapbooking products in my cardmaking. Magazines and on-line galleries were full of inspiration, so by October 2006 I started scrapbooking again and have never looked back since.
At this point in time, I consider myself very much a cardmaking scrapper. 
Cardmaking being my first love in papercrafting.

I'm so looking forward to sharing my Eyelet Outlet creations
 with you in the near future. 
And I'm so thrilled to be designing alongside 
with this fabulously talented group of DT members.

Marcie Morgan

My name is Marcie Morgan and I am a SAHM to three great kids ranging in ages from eleven to seventeen.  I have been married to my dh for twelve years and we live in an older historical home that we also share with six cats and two dogs!  There is never a dull moment at our house, but hey I always have subjects to scrap!  I've been scrapbooking for about eleven years and started out with the idea to make a simple baby book for my daughter and have been addicted ever since. I have been lucky enough to have served on many design teams over the years, including kit clubs, manufacturers, online stores, and challenge sites.  I've also been published in numerous publications, including Paper Crafts, Scrapbooks and Cards Today, Cards, Hobby Lobby magazine, and several online publications. 
Roxann Walker
Hi! I'm Roxann.  I'm a wife of 19 years to Big Daddy and we have 3 boys and a little girl, ages 6 to 15 years old, who keep us very busy! I'm an Oklahoma girl, currently living the dream in Central Ohio.    When you don't find me in the scraproom, you might find me in my garden or possibly watching some movie from the 80's that I've seen a zillion times!   I love to have fun and laugh and I'm super loyal to all those I love.

 I've been a scrapbooker all my life, really.  When as a young girl, I used to make paper scrapbooks and posters with pictures and words and glue and my mom's good pinking shears!  (Eeeek!   Yes, she freaked!)    After my first child was born, I stumbled upon archival scrapbooking at a craft fair and that was it....a full-blow addiction was born!  And I've been scrapbooking, stamping, paper crafting and creating for 14 1/2 years now and I love it so much more than you would think is possible.  (Yes, I even dream about scrapbooking ideas.)    Over the years, I've been afforded many opportunities to create, design and teach for many wonderful manufacturers.  I love sharing my love with others and I love to have fun.

I've had the pleasure of designing for Eyelet Outlet for 1 and 1/2 years and am super excited to now be part of the VERY FIRST DT!  I can't wait to show you fun ideas for using the best brads and eyelets in the industry!  If you haven't had a chance to see the Quicklets, throw out your hammer and check out those clever little puppies out today!  

Ro Philippsen

My name is Rosangela Philippsen, but you can call me just by my nick name Ro.
I live in a beautiful city called Curitiba, in the South of Brazil, with my beloved hubby and my 14 old year son, Rafael.
I´m graduated in Philosophy but 5 years ago I decided to leave behind a boring and stresses profession (I was Manager Account to a great insurance company), in search for something that could make me happier. Today I live among papers, scissors and inks! I scrapbook every day, I give lessons, I travel with my courses in my country and go to fairs too. I am passionate about creating and inspiring different people and I love trying new and interesting materials in my designs.

I'm very honored to be DT at Eyelet Outlet, it's a dream come true.
