We are so excited to introduce our brand new design team.

Hello! I'm Graciela but my Brazilian family calls me Gracie Ellie, and that is the name I go by in the papercrafting community. I discovered papercrafting through cardmaking around 2010 and little by little, it became my passion. Since I opened my blog I've felt even more captivated by this craft and I've discovered that I also enjoy working with alternative projects that give me freedom to experiment with different techniques. My style goes from shabby chic to vintage, and I tend to create classic and feminine projects. My blog has allowed me to connect with other artists and has given me so many opportunities that I'm thankful for. Currently I'm part of various design teams that I enjoy to work with very much. Now Sin City Stamps welcomes me to a new team and I am so grateful to be part of it!

I look forward to sharing my work with you all. I believe the genuine nature of creativity is inside each of us, so I'd be delighted if you could join me in this journey!

Hugs from Honduras/Brazil,

Hi! I am nurse from Ontario Canada. I have 3 grown children and 5 grandchildren.
I love to make cards but will try anything to do with scrapbooking once.. I am just 
starting to do mixed media and love it... I love to read. I also love to spend time with my 
youngest daughter Emily, Ayonna(our dog) and my grandchildren.

My name is Barbara Rankin, and I am thrilled to be a part of The Sin City Stamps Design Team for another term. I have been a crafter since early childhood... always making things.  After pursuing many different artistic endeavors, such as sewing, needlework, and Pergamano (embossing on parchment), I found my way into rubber stamping and graduated into becoming a self-taught, mixed-media artist.  I have taught classes at my local scrapbook store, as well as teaching the members of my local stamp club.  I have also been a guest instructor at another out-of-state stamp club on several occasions.  I love making cards, tags, ATCs (Artist Trading Cards), as well as making and altering books and mini albums.  My style is usually vintage or shabby chic, with a sprinkling of steampunk whenever possible.  I am also currently a design team member for Altered Pages.  I have been published in Altered Arts Magazine, as well as in a book "Make it in Minutes: Mini Books".  I was also published in the Just Steampunk Volumes 2 and 4 magazines, as well as Crafts n' Things e-zine.  I have a wonderful, supportive husband of thirty years, and we share our home with our two cute little Yorkie fur babies, Chloe and Zoe.

I am a mother of 2 teenage boys and a wife of 22 years.  I love making art of any kind, but paper arts are my true love.  It is the start of everything I make.  The paper shows me the direction I'm going to go in.  It's color, it's texture and it's designs show me the way. I love the journey it takes me on every time!  My work can be found in publications like Somerset Studio, Take Ten Magazine and The Stampers' Sampler.  I am so excited to be part of The SinCity Stamps Design Team!!!
