DT Member Spotlight: TerryO

TerryO joined the design team at the Village a couple of weeks after the site launched. She is a founding design team member and holds a permanent place on the Village design team. TerryO creates lots of cards using stamped and inked and/or hand colored digital stamps. She owns Tellen's Place Designs -- an online digital stamp company.

TerryO has been scrappin' since 1998. Her passions include cardmaking and mini albums, with cardmaking being her niche. A visit to the Village will showcase some of her work, but a visit to her blog will have your eyes dancing and your mind spinning trying to figure out which project to scraplift first.

TerryO first got into papercrafting when she made some cards for folks at work. Later that same year, her company had a craft fair in which she was encouraged to make and sell cards. She took the advice of her co-workers and sold at the craft fair. That prompted her to begin selling her cards on the seasonal craft circuit. She hasn't looked back... Although TerryO owns a Cricut and Big Shot, she finds herself doing more traditional work -- cutting with her hands rather than a machine or device. They are still part of her crafting world and get their use though!

On the scrapbooking scene, TerryO considers herself a traditional scrapbooker. In my mind, that is the only way to go! I have seen some absolutely lovely digital scrapbooks, but a scrapbook ain't a scrapbook unless you've manually cut and pasted some stuff to the page! Of course, that is just my personal opinion... Her favorite layout size is 6 x 6 mini albums. She gets to combine her passion for mini albums with her desire to scrapbook!

TerryO's own words about her papercraftin' passion: "I have this paper crafting passion because it is the one hobby that I totally enjoy 24/7 and it is a very fun way to give gifts to those I care about who appreciate handmade gifts; a win-win situation all the way around.  Through blogging and my challenge blog, I have met the most fantastic crafters who've become wonderful friends all over the world and this is exceptionally fruitful!"

Look for TerryO at the Village giving us lessons on cardmaking, inking and coloring, good uses of digital stamps, and other creative ventures. She can also be found at her blog -- Crafter's Delight -- and her digital stamp showcase -- Tellen's Place Designs.
