Our New Design Team Members!

Today is a very special day here at TIME OUT Challenges as we are here to introduce you to our new Design Team members. All the original team members are still with us but we have 4 new fabulous crafters to introduce to you. All of these new DT members are outstanding designers and we are so happy that they have agreed to join us at TIME OUT Challenges.

Why not grab a cuppa and take some TIME OUT to visit their blogs and say hi!

And here they are:

Her blog is My Papercraft World

Hello ... bonjour ... I’m Anita in France ... and in blogland, my home is at My Papercraft World.  Like many of us, I’ve crafted in one way or another since I can remember and got seriously into card making nearly two years ago, when I started my blog.  My style is mainly clean and simple ... sometimes quirky, sometimes graphic, occasionally whimsical.  I’m blessed to live in a wonderful part of the world … south west France ... where I spend most of my waking hours working on our long term house renovation project.  I’m thrilled and delighted to be joining such a great group of super talented crafters on the Time Out Design Team ... and am looking forward to seeing how you’re inspired by our fortnightly challenges!

Her blog is Elizabeta Kushner

"I live in Croatia. It is a small but beautiful country where scrapbooking and cardmaking are just beginning to become popular. When I am not working, studying or serving in my church, I love to read, meet new people, make cards, work in the garden, or watch movies with my husband."

Her blog is Funky Fossils Designs


Hi there - I’m Sarah and I am delighted to be joining the talented DT here at Time Out!  I live in Yorkshire and am the mum to two fab boys, aged 9 and 11.  I also work full time so don’t have much spare time but spend every minute I can get playing with my stamps and ink.  I have been crafting for a couple of years but only started blogging this March – it has been great to make lots of friends across the world who share this hobby!  I love CAS designs but also like to get my fingers inky and try out lots of techniques so I guess that my style is still evolving.  I love challenges as a way of sparking my creativity and am on the DT over at A Blog Named Hero too.  I look forward to taking Time Out with you and being inspired by all of your creations!

Her blog is Twine Around

Hi everybody, my name is Shona and I'm a card-making addict!! I'm also a stay-at-home mum to Phoebe (9yrs) and Max (7yrs) and married to forgetful Dave. We live in a small town called Blenheim in New Zealand. I have 2 golden retrievers, love gardening and I'm very addicted to Peanut M&M's. I only started crafting last year and started my blog in Sept 2013 which has been the most amazing adventure. My style is mainly CAS with more and more stamping creeping in.  I was so surprised and honoured to be asked to join the Time Out Design Team. They are such wonderful women and so creative with their projects. I'm looking forward to hopefully inspiring you for each challenge and visiting your own blogs to see what you create. I'm so excited!!!!

We are so pleased these lovely Ladies have joined our Design Team and their first challenge will be next week so we hope you will note that in your diary and see what they have created for you to inspire you to take that valuable TIME OUT to craft with us!
