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!!!

I’m pretty sure I have too many books. I have them in piles in every room and I keep buying more...faster than I can read them.

I’m most inspired by strong, independent women who make shit happen every day no matter what.

My guilty pleasure is ice cream. I don‘t want one or two scoops. I’ll take the entire tub. Thank you! Don‘t worry, I’ll being doing Zumba for several hours to break even. Lol

If I could have one wish I would ask for my family to remain healthy.

I am a wife and a mom of an 9 year old boy. I live in Maryland with my son Edward, husband Pete, and two cats Toby and Jessica.

Currently, I work for a Credit Union, 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. When I‘m not working, I can be found at home playing with my son, watching shows on Netflix, reading and scrapping! I’d like to say I am more of a simple/journalist scrapper, but I tend to do a variety of different things. I love creating layouts, playing with stamps and paint. And occasionally, I like to create mini albums, pocket pages and even planners.

I‘m pretty sure that I’m loved

I’m inspired by everything around me, and I can never predict what will be the source of inspiration in the next moment)))

My guilty pleasure is a tropical mango fruit

If I could get one desire .... I would like to live on the shore of the ocean

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.

Im pretty sure.....I could live on coffee and tacos.

Im most inspired by....junk. Seriously, going junking, thrifting and antiquing really gets me going! I really love the challenge of reinventing something old into something fresh and amazing!

My guilty pleasure is....creamed honey! I put it in everything from hot tea, to coffee to yogurt! MmMMMMmm. Oh and Chocolate is a super close second;)

If I could have one wish granted....I would wish for wisdom, I know I know...corny but who couldn’t use a little more of that?! I feel like I’m stumbling around in the dark sometimes ya know?! LOL!

The only way I can describe myself in a short blurb is an old, creative soul. I’m a small town Louisiana girl, hopelessly in love with my husband of 16 years, my crazy two boys and all things creative and beautiful. I have a strong faith and don’t give up easily, I think that’s why I have a love for breathing life into old forgotten things...it reminds me that nothing is ever really without hope if you give it a little love. 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. For me, a project or scrapbook page doesn’t feel quite complete without distressing or inking it up a bit. It is a huge honor to be among such a talented group of ladies on this design team!

I‘m pretty sure . . . that no one really knows what they’re doing.

I’m most inspired by . . . the art all around me in everyday life.
Nature, animals, plants, the ocean and music! Also, coffee can be pretty inspiring sometimes.

My guilty pleasure is . . . not so much guilty, but one of my greatest
joys is adventuring to new coffee shops and trying out new things (and ‘dropping’ art along the way).

If I could have one wish granted . . . I think the typical answer would be to wish for more wishes, but I guess I’ll go with world peace.

Cristin Stevenson (also known as, ‘PanArt’) is a professional mixed
media and visionary artist and online art instructor based in Kansas City, Missouri.

As well as showing artwork locally, she also teaches art techniques and art journaling online in collaborative and solo art courses with artists from all around the world.

PanArt considers herself to be a heArtist because she paints from the heart and infuses emotion into all of her artwork. She loves to use rich color, texture, storytelling, experimentation and values the art of letting go and embracing art rebellion.

I‘m pretty sure that my art is what keeps me sane. I couldn’t imagine how boring a life without art would be!

I’m most inspired by colour! I love playing with colour, paints are my go to. There are so many ways you can use colour to express yourself.

My guilty pleasure is my art, it is my escape from the pressures of the world. It’s where I can express myself without any fear of it not being ‘right’. There is no right or wrong in art.

If I could have one wish granted it would be to have every art supply I ever need at my fingertips, never running out. 🙂

My name is Lisa Amiet and I live in sunny Queensland, Australia.
I am a Mum to two children, wife to one and fur mum to my cat Moe and Lucy the pug. I have been involved in art of some form all my life but I then discovered scrapbooking about 15 years ago and haven’t looked back. I love using mixed media in my art, colour and dimension are my two favourite things. I think my style can change so much depending on what I am working with and what my mood is that day. I am so excited and blessed to have been chosen as a Bad Girl, I can’t wait to share some creations with you very soon!

I‘m pretty sure...I can do anything I put my mind and heart into. I’ve completed some pretty big goals and have even bigger ones set for the future!

I’m most inspired by...Nature. Sitting outside listening to birds,
looking at the early morning sky and just being in awe of mother nature.

My guilty pleasure is... edible cookie dough. It is seriously the most amazing thing.

If I could have one wish granted... I’d wish for disease to be cured
and dessert calories don’t count!

I‘ve been a BadGirl from way back! I’m a mother of 2 boys who keep me running around to football, lacrosse, band and karate! I‘m a wife, artist and National Board Certified art educator in a public school outside of Syracuse, NY. I love to create mixed media and work with every type of messy material I can get my hands on. Currently, I am a mixed media encaustic artist. I have been published in print and digital magazines as well as served on many design teams in the past. Most notably, Bad Girls Kits, Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft, Prima, Inside Out Visual Journaling and many more! I’m in cycle for my 1st degree black belt in karate and ran my 1st marathon last year! I’m a busy girl but always find time to create art!!

I’m pretty sure... I can be a great carpenter if given the tools hehe

I’m most inspired by.... my family especially my daughter and basically everything around me.

My guilty pleasure is.... drinking freshly ground coffee with something salty like chips or mixed nuts

If I could have one wish granted... I’d like to win the biggest amount in a lottery(but I need to join one first lol!

I’m Donna Espiritu from the Philippines currently living in Saudi Arabia with my husband and darling daughter. I’ve been crafting for more than a decade now. I love anything related to papercrafting especially scrapbooking and lately getting my jive into planner decorating. My crafting style evolved over the years but I always love to incorporate layers, clusters of details, textures and a bit of dimension in my projects. I hope you will be inspired with what I’ll be sharing and creating using Bad Girl Couture’s new products! I’m super excited delving into this new crafty adventure!

I‘m pretty sure I’m gonna be a ninja when I grow up.

I‘m most inspired by music, lyrics, melodies, all of it, especially if it’s a worship song.

My guilty pleasure is cream cheese. I really think it should be the 5th food group, anything with cream cheese.

If I could have one wish granted, it would be to be able to support my family financially with my art.

I have been married for 25 years to my wonderful husband. We have two adult kids, 22 and 18, a sweet pug, an Australian shepherd mix and a kitty. We are youth pastors, I am children’s pastor, a worship leader and we teach Sunday School. My faith and my family are a huge part of my art journey, as they are the at the core of who I am as a person. Besides art, I like to sing, listen to audio books while I work and shop at Hobby Lobby as much as possible. I like eating out and enjoy a good movie. I like to laugh and make others laugh, and singing in the car with my kids is one of my favorite things ever! I have always been creative, and got into photography and digital scrapbooking when my kids were little. I designed and sold digital scrapbook kits/papers/elements for three years. I fell in love with painting and mixed media when I discovered Bible art journaling in March of 2016. I play in lots of mediums, including, but not limited to, painting (acrylic, oil pastel and watercolor), drawing, digital and paper scrapbooking, mixed media collage, embroidery, paper crafting of all kinds like making paper flowers, and building paper villages, paper bead making, and just got my first package of paper clay and some fun molds, and am going to be making my own clay pieces for mixed media canvases. I love art journaling, as it allows me to experiment and try new things as well as express myself and my inner thoughts and feelings in a tangible way. I am also a writer and am currently working on a daily devotional that includes my writing and art.

Im pretty sure, that beauty will save the world (as the famous Russian writer Leo Tolstoy said). So I try to do as many beautiful things as possible!

Im most inspired by music, movies, visits to museums and exhibitions, communication with my creative friends.

My guilty pleasure is cats and coffee! I love early morning, when a cat gets on my lap, I drink my big Cup of coffee with cream and watch the sun rise.

If I could have one wish granted I would ask that in my next life (and I believe in reincarnation) I be married to my husband again :)))

Hello! My name is Elena Martynova and I live in Russia. Astrakhan. I have two kids aged 19 and 14. They are the most beautiful of my creations! Scrapbooking is my favorite hobby since 2013. I really love making art-journal pages, layouts and altered-art. I became a scrapbooker and my passion started growing. I like to work in various styles, but my favorite is mixed media. Scrapbooking for me is a journey full of surprises and adventures! New Design Team is like a liner going in a trip around the world. I know I am looking forward to meeting beautiful like-minded people, a lot of inspiration and new discoveries!
