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,

Hello, my name is Steph and I have been creating for as long as I can remember. I have been married for 40 years and we have a 27 year old son. I enjoy the creative process and find my day is not complete if I haven't spent some time in my studio where I create and plan. I love to teach and can be found teaching classes at my local libraries and in my studio.

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! 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!

I love Latte's and makein' pretty things!  I love stamping/papercrafting, coloring, quilting and decorating my home.  Family-time is my favorite, and with 3 kiddo's, a kiddo-in-law & a wonderful Grandson I certainly get plenty of it!  One of my more recent loves is traveling with my Hubby, a hobby we've taken up now that the kiddo's are "grown"... and I #LoveThisLife

Hi, my name is Niccole Kulig and I have been crafting for as long as I can remember. I live in a small town in Wisconsin. I have a very supportive husband and three amazing children. They range in age from 28 to 16. I also have an amazing granddaughter who is 4 and a new grandson who is a little over a month old. You will most definitely see photos of my tribe popping up here or there. I also have 3 fur babies; one dog and two cats.

I am a social worker by day and card making is a major stress reliever at the end of the day. I would live in my craft room if I could. I would say my style is more along the lines of clean and simple. I love to learn new things and share what I know with my friends.

I am Kinjal (aka Mind My Paper), the newest FT member at TLC Designs! I am originally from India, grew up in the Middle East, worked in India for a while, and am currently in Houston, Texas. This won't be my last stop, as marrying my husband and his job means I will be roaming around the world. 

I am a self-starter with almost everything in my life, which goes for my love for crafting. I learned how to make cards by watching YouTube videos, applied for my first Design Team last year when I knew nothing about it, started blogging, and learned to navigate Instagram as much as I could. Having said all that, I can't wait to share this new journey and my vision with all of you.

I am Merja (or MeSi) and I live in Finland with my hubby.

I've always loved crafting, but I've been more active since the start of 2020, when I realised that I should do more things that I love and less things that I don't love.

At the moment I mostly do cards and colour with alcohol markers - those are my lifesaver and help me to relax. I love strong and bright colours and quite simple style.

Hi! I’m Linh – or LV Handcrafted on social media. I live in Seattle, WA (the rain doesn’t bother me one bit😊) with my husband and our two dogs. I’ve been crafting since I was in high school but took a long break as I started my career. Now (many many years later) I am my own boss working as a business consultant, so I can balance my time and do more of what I love – papercrafting!

 I’m excited to join such a talented team of crafters and the TLC community. It’s such an honor to join this team. There’s always so much to learn in papercrafting, and I find great joy in adding my own twist and sharing what I've learned. I love to share my makes as a way of giving back to our amazing crafty community. I mainly create process videos on my YouTube channel so you can see exactly how I create my projects. I dabble in everything from cards, mini albums, journals and 3D flower forming.

 I’m looking forward to designing for TLC Designs and to interacting with you on all the socials!

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.
