Bad Girls Owner

If I could paint the sky it would be pale pink. I love the feeling of making people happy. I’d like to think I could erase poverty and hunger. I love to meander in my garden. See’s Candy? Yes Please. I don’t need my arm twisted to shop. I’m pretty sure I’m my mother’s favorite. I love kisses.. but only from the man I love…my husband Kenny. My 3 children will tell you I was the crazy mom who went on midnight adventures with them. I’m a native Southern California Bad Ass. I love antique shopping…surprised???? And I am pretty darn sure that when God created me He made me an Artist… placed glitter in my veins, crystals in my eyes, and creativity in my heart and soul. Life is good and I’m ready to be BAD!!!

Bad Girls Design Team Coordinator

I am a wife and a mom of a 7 year old boy. I live in Maryland with my son, husband, Pete, 2 kitties (Jessica and Toby) and Potbelly pig named Hamlet.
Currently, I work for a credit union, 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. When I‘m not working, I am at home playing with my son and at night, when he’s asleep, I scrap! I’d like to say I am more of a simple/journalist scrapper, but I tend to do a little of everything! I love creating layouts which includes stamping and mixed media, mini albums, pocket pages and even planners.

I am Irina from Saint Peterburg in Russia. I‘m 47 years old. I’m married and have a grown-up daughter and a cat called Marusya. I am a teacher of art history. I worked in schools and universities and I am currently the specialist in school administration. In my life I love to do many things. I discovered scrapbooking more than 6 years ago after receiving some supplies as a gift and immediately fell in love with this hobby as a creative outlet and a way to document life’s fun, interesting moments. I really like different tech stuff in scrapping and continuously experiment with various materials and styles to develop new techniques, tools and devices. I like to do layouts, albums, art-objects, and home decor! I love to create layout sketches and create layouts in Silhouette Studio program.

My name is Michelle and I live in Chino, California. I have been with my husband for 25 years, and am a Mom to 4 wonderful boys (men). And we have a Hollandlop bunny called Sebastian.
I manage a couple of major retail store accounts in sales and development for Prima Marketing in the crafting industry. I have been crafting for 20 years now. I love everything from scrapbooking, mini albums, planners, travel notebooks, Watercoloring, and mixed media.
I have been on several design teams, and love to teach when time allows me to. Crafting is very therapeutic and now that my boys are older I find that I have more time to create.
It’s been over 5 years since I have been on a design team, and I missed it a lot. The company I work for shares my projects from time to time and I love that.
I am very excited to be a Bad Girl!

Bios are so hard. How can I explain all that I am in one little statement? Well I‘ll make it as short and to the point as I can. I’m a smalltown girl from South Louisiana and still live in my sleepy little home town. Married for 15 years to the sweetest man to walk the earth and blessed with two wild and crazy boys ages 6 and 11. I‘ve been attracted to all things paper crafts from a very young age...back when scratch and sniff stickers, peel and stick photo albums & scotch tape were acceptable. Although I love making scrapbook layouts of our family memories, I also love working in my planner, making mini albums and lately I’ve been finding a lot of joy in art and Bible journaling. I hate my handwriting but force myself to use it more and more...maybe the kids will appreciate that later. Doubt it...but maybe. I am a very sentimental person and I save everything. I have a funky, gritty but graphic style and love all things vintage...so needless to say, this kit will be right up my alley! I love to distress things and don’t feel a page is complete without inking it up a bit. It is a huge honor to be among such a talented group of ladies on this design team!

My name is Rae and I live in Las Vegas, Nevada with my husband, three Kids (two boys and a girl), and one pesky cat. I used to be a high school English teacher, but now I work from home in the pharmaceutical sciences industry. Scrapbooking/paper crafting has been a part of my life since 2007, and I am hopelessly addicted! I enjoy making layouts and all sort of decor that has a romantic, shabby, or grungy style, as well as trying out new styles and techniques, and adding flowers to nearly all of my projects!

I am a housewife and live in Texas with my husband of 32 years, and my dog Mack. My son Nick moved out and has an apartment with his fiance Aron. I am truly blessed to be able to spend the time I do on scrapbooking, which I started in 2012. I like to use paint and mediums, stitching, bling, and things that add texture. I am inspired by looking at the world around me.

I took oil painting classes for four years, and painted a lot at home. I’ve always enjoyed crafts. These include beading, cross stitch, quilting,and sewing.

I have a BSRN, but pretty much stopped after my son was born, to be a stay at home mom.

Candy Rosenberg

Bad Girls Designer

Hello, my fellow art enthusiasts, my name is Candy Rosenberg and I live in beautiful Southern Oregon. I have three wonderful children, two are military brats and the other a college graduate in Graphic Design. I have been fortunate enough to have spent the last ten years doing what I love the most, that is inspiring others through art with a number of manufacturers, magazines, teaching in Australia, Canada and all over the US. My passion is teaching and inspiring others to create art, every single person is an artist!

I am known for my Vintage Steampunk Style and Dress Form/Mannequins, however, most know me from my time with Graphic 45 and I still create a dress form for their booth each year at the Craft & Hobby Tradeshow, since 2009. My work is vintage, dimensional and outside of the box. I rehab furniture and make it look like my projects, layers and layers and shabby as heck. I love to get my hands dirty and work with found objects and repurpose whenever I can. I have been crafting since I was little and opened my very first Graphic Design company when I was 19 years old, my first job was a big wood sign that needed to be carved out. I didn’t have the power tools, so I got several screwdrivers and a hammer and in two weeks they could not tell the difference. The rest, as they say, is history...
