Introducing Colleen Spangler

My name is Colleen Spangler I have been married to my loving and very supportive husband for 7 years. We live in Ohio and have two beautiful children ages 6 and 1. I love all things crafty, but cardmaking and scrapbooking are my top two favorites! I have been crafting as long as I can remember, but most seriously in the past 3 years. I am excited to be part of the Stamping Boutique team and I adore Tracey's images, so this should be a good thing!

Introducing Kecia Waters

I am absolutely elated to be a part of The Stamping Boutique's Design Team.  I love coloring large, open whimsical images, like those from The Stamping Boutique, with alcohol markers and color pencils.

I just got married in July and I am so happy (and relieved) that my husband, Chris, encourages my card designing obsession.  We often will spend our time together in my stamp room, with him surfing the web and with me coloring away.  When I am not stamping, I am busy cheering my Ohio State Buckeyes onto victory in football, playing with my spoiled, but adorable dachshund, Sloopy, or teaching Kindergarten.  It all keeps me busy, but I love every minute of it.

  Michelle has been so busy creating one super sweet project after another and this one is no exception either!
