I started card making 5 years ago, simply by mistake! My husband needed a card for one of his co-workers and I just thought it would be so neat to create my own... and that's when I became hooked and have not looked back since!
You can find me and my projects at Hooliewood Creations.
I adore the shabby-chic vintage look (unfortunately I cannot seem to create that look despite trying!) and simple and elegant designs. I love to use bling, paper-piecing and using digi or acrylic/rubber stamps in my projects.
I also enjoy watching crafty videos to learn new and different techniques. Some crafty tools I cannot live without: Liquid pearls, Cuttlebug, Stamps, Copic blending paper and my Copic markers!
I am thrilled to be a part of the JustWordz.ca Design Team and am looking forward to seeing all the fabulous creations this term!

About me: Hello, My name is Leah Ann and I live in Indiana. I am married to my wonderful husband Don and between the two of us we have 5 children, and 12 grandchildren. Our grand babies range from ages 2 to 16. I'm a country girl, although I live in town now. I love animals, and have had every farm animal you can possible think of! My hubby is a retired Firefighter/Paramedic and I am retired as a Stay At Home Mom.
I'm known as The Hoosier Stamper to most. I have been crafting since I was 9 years old. My favorite craft of course is Stamping. I started stamping about 7 years ago, and I'm now addicted! I taught stamping classes at a little shop for a while and it was so much fun. Over the years I have done several craft shows at our local schools. I made country bunnies, oh! that tells my age :O) and many different hand sewn items. I love to crochet doilies and afghans, and I've made many dolls over the years.
I love making Easel cards, and I enjoy making them the most right now. I also love stamping on candles. Most images I use are cute images. I love angels, Native American Indian/Southwest, and also Asian. Of course there are many others I like too, it would take all day to name them.
I am here to help in anyway I can, and to learn from all of you! Hugs! Leah Ann
Thanks for dropping by and leaving your fabulous comments. Check in tomorrow for another fabulous designer.

Hi guys! My name is Kristin and I live in the Chicagoland area of the US. I have been paper crafting for 3 years and absolutely love it! I mainly create cards, altered items and can be found in my craft studio every day of the week. It’s my favorite room of the house. I am the only girl in my household. Even the pets are male! So my studio allows me a place for pink, lace, pearls, and all things girlie. I am looking forward to being on this Design Team and hopefully supplying you with lots of inspiration!
Super lovely eh? I think she will do wonders with my stamp sets....Thanks for dropping by and we have another girl to introduce you to tomorrow, so please drop in again.

Hi, my name is Heather and let me first say that I am honoured to be part of the Justwordz design team. I live in Ontario, Canada. I am married for 9 years to my best friend. I have one son and in May I became a mother-in-law as well. I began scrap booking about 10 years ago now when I wanted to do our wedding album. I was hooked from the start and a small case of supplies soon grew into an entire room in our apartment which has the nickname “My Pink Castle” where I spend a lot of my free time. I discovered card making and the blog world almost 2 years ago now. My latest obsession is Copic markers and most evenings you will find me colouring up a storm. Besides paper crafting I also knit, crochet and love to read. I am looking forward to working with my new design team and sharing Kimberly’s stamps with you all.
I'm so excited to see what she has in store for us over the next few months.
Don't forget to drop in again tomorrow and you will meet another fabulous girl...

Well gang, glad you dropped by. Here i have another commission card i made for the same girl at work...she's keeping me in business all right. This was going to a friend who is Italian and i thought why not make it all in Italian...Wasn't too bad, but there are some words in Italian that mean many different things. I hope she got it...thank goodness for google. Of course the top sentiment says, one tequila, two tequila, three tequila floor. Along the bottom of the card i put happy birthday and many wishes, on the inside i put enjoy your birthday. Image is from bugaboo and was colored with promarkers, did a little embossing and colored some white flowers to match my paper. Had fun making this one. Thanks for dropping by and come back on Monday to meet a new design team member. Love reading your comments, and i appreciate the time you take to leave one.

Here is me and Melanie...super fabulous girl and so sharing of all her wonderful talents. I noticed her at tables giving tips to any who asked, what an amazing girl. Check her blog, her coloring is out of this world....http://paperblessingsbymelanie.blogspot.com/
I wish i had more pictures but Kim's team keep us so busy i didn't have much time to mingle and chat to other crafters or to pick Kim's girls brains of all their creative talents. I was so focused on the projects and i have learned I'm not the fastest colorer...don't figure. So a big shout out to all the other ladies there helping with the make and takes and being there for any questions we might have had. All the projects are fantastic and i love them all.
Here is the first make and take we had, what a fabulous tag. This was my first time touching a copic marker. I colored all these make and takes with them. It is a bit of a learning curve from using promarkers but i managed fine. Super cute.
Make and Take #2.
Have you ever colored on Kraft paper...not me. Loved how this image turned out. The paper soaks up the ink and you get your true colors when it's dry but love the outcome. And isn't this the greatest image ever???
Make and Take #4
A simple but very elegant card. We had some wonderful help from a DT's daughter, sorry i missed your name, but i was one focused and just wanted to complete all the make and takes. So thank you, you were the bomb. You made it so simple and easy to put this one together.
OK Check out the SWAG!!!
Fantastic goodie bag. Great stamps from Kimmie, which i colored while i was there and some great embellishments, magazine, tote bag, candy, stickles, glue dots, and twine..super nice to get a surprise bag of goodies, I'll take that any time eh???
OK OK, yes i spent money..But really there was no need but all these items were 30 percent off, there is no where i can get these items at these great prices near me. I also got some neenah paper as well which i forgot to pop in the frame. Remember don't tell the hubby....I just had to get a T-Shirt to remember the day, and some of Kimmies stamps.
WHEW!!! What a day, can we do it again????
All you bloggers out there should try and make it next year, super fun day, fantastic people and great fun for all...THANK YOU KIM!!!
