Design Team

"Hello! My name is Ka and I am the creator of this brand new challenge! I am so excited that you are here! Thank you so much for all of your support you've shown so far for my new challenge! I really appreciate you coming back each day! Here's a little background about me. I have been paper crafting for a long time. I started scrapbooking in 2007 and a couple months later, I was introduced to card making through a co-worker. It was immediate love! Whimsical, cutesy images are my favorite! I also enjoy organizing my crafting supplies. There is just something about having an organized, clean crafting studio. When I am not creating or organizing, I am spending time with my husband, playing games at Dave & Buster with friends, having family game nights, playing tennis, and watching my favorite TV comedy shows!"

"Hello! My name is Nora Noll and I am excited to be a part of the Tic Tac Toe Challenge Design team. I have been a crafter since I can remember-starting with hand-sewing and have taken classes in everything from pottery to decorative painting. I started paper crafting in my teens, and have been doing some sort of paper craft for almost thirty years.

I would not say I have a particular style, though I am not a one-layer wonder. I tend to have many layers on my cards and own die cuts for almost all of my stamps. Layering helps me cover up my mistakes when I make them so that I do not have to throw away a whole card! Paper crafting is a stress release for me. I create for no other purpose then to have fun and relax. I know that being part of this design team is going to be a lot of fun and I cannot to wait to get to know everyone."

"Hello! My name is Amina and I am deeply in love with paper crafting. I live in the UK with my awesome husband. We have two cute kids who fill our lives with happiness and laughter. I used to teach in a Primary school but currently a SAHM. I love making cards, albums, mixed-media, altering and anything in between. I have always enjoyed being creative. In fact as a little girl I used to love playing with scissors and glue. I bought my first ever stamping supplies in 2005. YouTube videos totally changed my life in 2009. Since then I have fallen deeply in love with this awesome hobby. For me, ‘ME TIME’ means making cards, tags, mini books and journals. I would describe my crafting style as eclectic and wide ranging. I love making shabby chic cards with layers as well as simple cards with just one layer. I love my hobby and have become friends with some awesome people. Love the crafting community. So excited to be a part of TIC-TAC-TOE challenge and looking forward to getting to know everyone."


"Hi, I'm Rachel Bergfeld, and I'm an Indiana native who's been transplanted to Southwestern Arizona for the time being. I still feel like a newlywed (just over 2 years) and my husband and I have 2 dogs and 3 cats, but no human children yet. I started papercrafting in 2011 when I decided to try to make my own Thank You cards for my wedding. Little did I know that I was starting a full-blown obsession with that cardstock and simple rubber stamp!

My style has since evolved into Clean and Simple by nature and necessity. I live pretty far from all of my family and I like to stay in touch with a handmade card every so often, but they have to stay fairly flat to make it through the mail undamaged. I will occasionally play around with other styles just for fun and variety! I love card making because receiving a handmade card feels like getting a little hug over long distance. It's a great way to keep in touch with the people in my life that I don't get to see very often. When I'm not making cards in my craft room, you can usually find me curled up with a good book and a dog or a kitty (or 2!) or else playing video games with my husband."

"Hello! My name is Varada Sharma and I live in Franklin, TN with my truly wonderful husband and two lovely princesses. Growing up, I wasn't much artsy-craftsy, but when I got to college, I developed a huge interest for sewing and painting. I think some of my Mom's love for making handmade things rubbed off on me then.

When we moved to the United States, I dribbled first into jewelry making and home decor before finally settling on card making as 'my thing'. I love how card making let's me focus on a project that is achievable in one sitting most of the time. I love how it lets me experiment with different designs, colors and mediums. And best of all, I love how I can brighten someone's day by giving them a card I made myself. I don't have any definitive style of card making or crafting. I just roll with whatever inspires me at that time. I am so thrilled to be part of the design team at tic-tac-toe challenge, of which I have been a big fan for a long time. Can't wait to inspire this community with my creations and get inspired in return. :-)"

"Hello!! I’m Channin, pronounced just like the typical pronunciation of Shannon, my parents are creative too ;). I’m a mother of two little girls both under the age of 4 and just recently took a break from being a teacher to be a SAHM. I’ve been making cards for about 4 years now. It all started when I got my Cricut and I went looking for an outlet to create with it. I soon discovered card challenges and though them I rediscovered stamping and I was hooked!! I love this craft form because you get to experiment with design and play with a variety of art materials and when you are done you have created kind gesture for a loved one. I would love to say that I have one style but I definitely dabble in many styles, but honestly clean and simple is probably my most favorite."

"Hello, friends! I am so excited to be joining the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge Design Team! I am married to my high school sweetheart, mom to four kids, and am employed as a school psychologist. My other hobbies include singing, gardening, reading, and scrapbooking. (I must also admit that I am addicted to Pinterest.) I was introduced to card making in the late 1990's when my best friend sent me a hand-made Christmas card and encouraged me to try it...and I have been hooked ever since! I love the clean and simple style, although I also enjoy cute scenes and paper-piecing designs. I love sharing my designs and I am always inspired by what others share...that's why I am SO excited to join the design team at the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge!"
