Steph L (aka PepperyApple)

Hi I'm Steph and I'm a Glitter Geek.
I have been crafting for about 9 years but more so over the last 5 years or so.
I do card making mainly, I love to scrap and I enjoy making books and notepads, etc.
I prefer to stamp and colour with ProMarkers but have been known to occasionally use decoupage, stickers and chipboard for my card toppers. I'm starting to make jewellery now and going to see where that take me
I decided to create Glitter Geeks with Jacqui H and Josie as a way to bring fellow crafters together and  get some challenges on the go for others to join in with.
Thanks for looking and watch this blog.

Lucy (My Crafty World)
Hi, Lucy here! I am one of the Glitter Geeks along with Steph and Jacqui.
I think the title is the perfect description! I LOVE glitter, the world is not right without it.
I have been crafting for about 9 or 10 years but properly for about the last 4.
I am mainly a card maker but do scrapbooking too. I, like Steph, love stamping and colouring with Pro Markers, but venture in to other things from time to time.
I really hope you will follow our blog and share your work with us on our forum, we would love to see it what ever it may be.

Stay crafty.....

Jacqui M

Hi Jacqui here, I live in Cheshire and have been making cards for a good few years now.
I have designed stamps for Little Claire and for a local craft shop.
I have just recently ventured into designing my own range of digi stamps and am loving every second of it.
I love using Promarkers and have way too many dp's, its kind of taken over the living room , even the poor cat gets glittered from time to time but hey, what's life without a bit of sparkle here and there?

Hi everyone! I'm Sarah and I live in York now although I'm originally from South Wales. I've been into crafting for about three years, I decided to make my own Christmas cards one year and it just spiralled from there really! I love colouring, usually with Promarkers and I've recently discovered distressing which I find very therapeutic. When I'm not crafting I like to read, bake cupcakes and watch quiz programmes on tv. I also love shopping, especially for stash!

Hello to you all, I'm Nelly and I live in Nottingham, I currently work full time doing social work with adults, by night I do the house work (well surface dust :) so I can spend my weekends crafting! I found my passion for paper crafting 2 years ago after I popped into a craft store. near the local hospital, I asked for something to inspire me and came away with a craft class booked for the following Sunday and I haven't had any savings since he he!
I love to stamp and colour, to date my favourite mediums are pro markers and distress inks, I love to water colour with distress inks too, my all time favourite stamps are magnolia and recently started to buy Stampavie collections.
I love the crafting community, it's an extension on to my family.

Marfa (aka Crafting Marfa)
Hi there, people and peoplettes!  My name is Marfa and I live in Hialeah, Florida.  Right now you're probably thinking "huh?  Hialeah?  How you do you even pronounce that?"  Well, to give you a better idea, I live in the Greater Miami area, in Florida, USA.  I have been crafting for about 10 years now.  I was hooked by my BFF.  I started out doing digital stuff and then slowly moved to paper scrapping.  Now I do mostly scrapbooking and card-making.  But I also love loom knitting, crocheting, hand embroidery, drawing and quilling.  I don't mean quilting cause I don't know how to sew, I mean creating things by rolling paper strips, making shapes and gluing them together.  I have been a secretary most of my working life, but I am making a drastic change and getting into photography, a field that I love.
My mediums of preference are Copic markers, Prisma coloring pencils,  Martha Stewart glitter and lots of scrapbook paper.

Hi I'm Daisylou. I have been crafting for as long as I could hold a crayon. I have tried so many crafts in the past but card making is my forte and has been for the past 10 or so years. 
I adore my Pro and Fleximarkers and will probably use these more than any other colouring medium as I just can't get enough of them! Glitter is another passion ~ especially pink..I love everything pink!! I'm a true girly girl in every sense of the word.
I suffer with ME along with a few other illnesses. So, if you don't see me for a while you know I'm resting it out :)

Hiya, i'm Paula.  I've been card making for a few years now, at first i stuck to decoupage but in the past 18 months or so have switched to stamping which i love!  There's nothing more relaxing than colouring in using either my beloved Prisma pencils or my Copic pens.  I'm addicted to paper and find myself buying far to much then being reluctant to use it because its so gorgeous!
I don't know if i have a style of crafting but my favourite images are Halloween, Goth type images although i'm happy to dabble with any image :)

Hello everyone, well I've been cardmaking for about 7 years now. I absolutely love it. I also do altered art, scrapbooking and at the moment I'm learning to crochet so I can make embellishments for my cards. I work full-time running my own hair salon, but when I'm not working I spend as much time as I can crafting and blogging. I do a monthly tutorial on my blog and other features too. Crafting isnt just my hobby, its my absolute passion....and my dream was to be a member of a fantastic Design Team.....so here I am, I feel honoured to be a part of this team with so many other talented Designers! I love to stamp and colour in, and I love distress work too. I would call myself an all round crafter as I like to work with how I feel at the time, and keep my work varied and try new things too. Oh yes, and I tend to waffle a lot, the trait of being a hairdresser! Anyway, you can follow me on Twitter @PinkNJ on Facebook......Nicola Saul.....(a lot of my crafty friends call me NJ all the time you will notice) and here is my blog if you fancy a peek http://pinkdelightcraft.blogspot.com/
I hope you will follow my journey through the fabulous and exciting world of crafting...I look forward to seeing your challenge entries so join in and have fun, lots of love from NJ XXX
