Tammy Louise Cunliffe (TLC) Owner/Founder of TLCDesigns.Shop.

 Hello~ I'm what friends and family call creative to the core! My husband on the other hand, calls it obsessive lol! I live in the U.S. with my autistic child and husband. Crafting for me is more than a passion, it's an extension of who I am. Shape die designs and interactive products are what keep my creative juices flowing.   I love being in my happy . . .comfy . . and creative, sharing craft hour on Thursday nights with those that draw joy and relaxation from crafting as well.  I am dedicated to great customer service, original product designs and most of all, the prices of my products will always be affordable for everyone!  After all, aren't we all looking for the store that offers that? 

Stay Crafty,

The fabulous DT Team Members for May 2021 - December 2021

My name is Melanie Smith and I am 100% crafty. I acquired the love of crafting from my mother and what a gift it has been in my life. I enjoy a good challenge so designing for a company inspires me. I have a passion for color. Every project is designed with color in mind first. I love coordinating the papers and color mediums as well as embellishments etc. around my chosen color palette. I am constantly striving to grow as an artist and look for growth opportunities every day. My joy of crafting keeps me busy and gives my life joy and a sense of accomplishment. I have made so many friends along the way and I truly love being on this journey together. 💜

Hi! My name is Amanda Willett-Snider, better known as CaveWitchCrafts. I'm 26 years old, from Kentucky, and a collector of hobbies. I love creating fanart influenced by my favorite movies, books, and music. I'm also inclined to use my fondness for magical creatures, fantasy worlds, and mysterious cryptids to inspire me. I love making art for all types of occasions, but I go HARD for Halloween. Other than paper-crafting, some of the hobbies I've collected over time are playing piano, reading, Perler beading, hula hooping, and drawing.. to name a few.

Hi my name is Candace (aka Candi O. Designs) I live in Boise, Idaho with my husband of 19 years, son(18) and daughter(15). I have been paper crafting for over 19 years now. I started out scrapbooking my wedding album then doing my 2 children’s albums. I enjoy making layouts and documenting events, milestones and everything! I started working at a local scrapbook store here in Boise in 2005. I became their teacher, designer and buyer. Unfortunately, in September 2017, the owners decided to close up shop. I love designing on teams and I’ve seen myself grow so much in the crafting world. I make scrapbook pages, cards, mini albums and everything else in between. Excited to join TLC Designs and showcase their products beautifully!

Hi there! My name is Marilyn and after many years of living on a grain farm and working as a municipal administrator, I am now retired and living in a small city in Saskatchewan Canada with my supportive hubby. I've been married longer than I've been anything - we have two wonderful children and their spouses and they have given us four beautiful and perfect grandchildren.
I've always been involved in crafting of some sort but began my paper crafting journey in 2010 am am enjoying it as much now as when I began. I remember it started with looking at a handmade card in a shop and thinking 'I can make that and I can do it for a lot less'. Well, part of that is true... yes, I can make that but apparently not for less because I want it all and I want it now! I'm OK with that though and consider every card an adventure and each one is crafted with care and attention.
I am thrilled to be part of the TLC Designs design team and look forward to sharing my projects with you.

Marj Banzales

TLC Designs New Release/Hops

Hi! My name is Marj, the person behind MarjBanzalesDesigns. I am completely obsessed with all things related to paper. I have been a paper fanatic since I was in Grade school and collected an amount of paper. During those years, I even started a small business by buying and selling stationaries to my girlfriends. I’ve had a love of art since I was very young but my love of lettering started when my typewriter broke and don’t have access to any computer. I had to start from scratch because it won’t look good if it doesn’t match at all. With that being said, I made my project like I was making a scrapbook. Very attractive, full of designs and creativity. I have been in love with cardmaking, coloring, and stamping after receiving a crafty magazine by mail…. the rest is history. I am passionate about card making. It brings me so much joy. I just love to create! I am very excited to be part of this team and I hope that I inspire you to make beautiful and creative projects!

 

Rosemary Bridges

Special Guest Designer

Hi friends, my name is Rosemary (Rosie for short) and I’m a military brat who is married to my college sweetheart and now residing in Oklahoma. I was introduced to scrapbooking back in the 90s and was so excited because it combined my love of photography with stickers and stamps and paper. In 2010, I started down the path of cardmaking. I love that a card just takes a few hours and then it's done, although sometimes for me it can drag out into days. I don't know if I can say that I have a particular style as I like to try new things and techniques, however I do love bright colors! I also love to cook, bake, and travel.

I have only recently found journaling and mixed media, I call it “messy crafting” and I love it I don’t think there is a day goes by I don’t have inky fingers! I have 3 daughters, 27, 26 and 21 and a very patient hubby he buys all my crafty goodies and I am blessed I am able to craft every day! Hugs Aly xx
