Welcome New Sweeties!


We've been celebrating our 300th Challenge all week and the party is still going on!
Today we're excited to introduce three new Sweeties who are joining in on the celebration!
Please welcome Amy, Sandi Lee, and Valentyna to the Cupcake Inspirations team!


Amy is a stay at home mother to three amazing children - a 17 year old daughter and boys age 15 and 12 - who keep her full of life and busy at times. They live in Georgetown, Texas, which is right outside of Austin. After growing up in a military family, Amy finds it nice to stay in one place for a while. She loves to travel, and of course, craft. She has been been scrapbooking for 16 years and making cards for 6. With a style that is more CAS than anything, card making is her favorite paper craft fight now. Amy loves trying new techniques and learning all styles.

Sandi Lee resides in Pennsylvania where she teaches special needs students in grades K-3 and is a mom to three amazing teenagers (two daughters and a son) and a Miniature Pinscher/Toy Fox Terrier named Stamper. Sandi Lee fell in love with stamping and cardmaking in 2000, then began scrapbooking and sharing her work on her blog in 2010. Creating soothes her soul and there's nothing like the smell of "new" paper and the feel of some new stamps in her hands!

Valentyna is a craft and blog addict, and a bit of a crazy pinterester! Her papercrafting, cardmaking, and blogging started when she received a Cricut as a gift from her husband in 2011 and has enjoyed every minute of it. Three years after she started blogging shed decided to reinvent herself as a crafter and Flourshtina was born. Her style has changed a bit to more CAS and has begun starting to use a greater variety of stamps and inks. Her blog has been a great place to connect with crafters and find other fanatics of cards. She loves meeting new friends and sharing her papercraft passion!




We asked our new Sweeties to help us celebrate this week 
and they've each taken on one of our Inspiration Challenges.


Amy has a sweet card to play along with the Sparkle Inspiration today!
