For the current challenge

It's Day Three of The Big Reveal

Each day we are revealing 
two new designers

If you missed our first three new designers
announced over the past two days, make sure you scroll
down to see who they are!

We are very excited to welcome our
first 'Aussie'.....

 Fiona Shultz to 
The Play Date Cafe Design Team

"I live about 90 minutes drive north of Sydney, Australia.  
I have been creative for as long as I can remember, 
first starting with knitting and crochet as a young girl, 
moving on to tapestry, cross stitch and embroidery. 
As a young adult, and I began making cards (of sorts) 
some 14 years ago.  
Along the way I’ve dabbled in patchwork, 
quilting and scrapbooking to name a few.  
I would have to say in the last 12 months I have reignited 
a love of stamping...
So expect to see that evidenced in my work.  
I am a lover of making useful items. 
These are the ones I receive the most joy out of, 
because of being able to see those creations 
used in a practical way, and I tend to take ages 
to make anything, just because 
I like to make each step count :)"

We are also over the moon to welcome..... 

Jinny Newlin to 
The Play Date Cafe Design Team

"I am a former, kindergarten teacher turned stay-at-home, 
home school mom to a smart, spunky, seven-year-old Ezekiel 
and a vocal, tenacious, two-year-old Adina.  
My husband BJ and I, feel overwhelmingly blessed to call them ours.  
When I'm not taking care of or playing with my family, 
you can find me cooking, baking, gardening, camping, 
sewing, teaching Sunday school, and of course, papercrafting. 
My love for stamping started over nine years ago 
at a Stampin’ Up workshop, but my love for creating
began before birth.  I'm so excited, extremely blessed, 
and truly honored to be joining The Play Date Cafe Design Team
for the next term and hope that I can inspire you to get creating."

We are thrilled to have these talented ladies
with us for at least the next six months!
Make sure you make a visit to their blogs
