The Want2Scrap and The Craft's Meow Hop

Welcome to The Craft's Meow and Want2Scrap Hop!





Today we are teaming up with The Craft's Meow's Design Team to show you incredible projects featuring

The Craft's Meow's stamps designed:


I'm a Filipino-American who currently calls beautiful Croatia my home. I'm blessed to be a wife to my best friend and mom to three sweet girls. Life and ministry keep me busy, but I always find time for crafts. I enjoy making cards that I like to send out and give away. I joined the paper crafting community in 2009 when I started my blog, Crafting in Croatia.

I have worked as a stamp illustrator/product designer for Layers of Color Art Stamps, Gina K Designs, There She Goes Stamps and Spellbinder Paper Arts. As a former science geek, I didn't know my artistic side until I started drawing for my girls to color. I got the courage to submit my illustrations to stamp companies (which I had to Google since I was only familiar with Stampin' Up!) for consideration. Surprisingly, most of them responded positively and I have enjoyed making cards with my own illustrations ever since. I have since expanded to die designs and I'm thrilled to work with Spellbinders Paper Arts creating die cuts for paper crafters.

I want to thank Lisa for the opportunity to design stamps for The Craft's Meow. I'm honored to be a part of TCM from the beginning. And what a treat for me to work with the talented Sarah and Alice also. God has given me a full life and I can't thank Him enough for the countless ways He blesses me everyday.
