NEW Shimmerz Designers!!!!

I have been squirming to announce our newest Shimmerz Design and Ed. Team Members!!!!!!!!!  They are 4 incredibly talented ladies that really know how to use and inspire us with Shimmerz.  I am tickled to have them join our little Shimmerz family.  So please help me welcome. . . . . .

Evgenia Petzer
My name is Evegnia Petzer, I am a Russian girl, but we live in South Africa now, it’s a native country of my husband. I absolutely love it here. We have a 4,5 year old son, a ginger cat and a cute yorkie. My style is closer to shabby chic, always lots of details. I love to make cards most of all, but i also do LOs, altered items. I am very honoured to be a part of some amazing Design Teams as Bo Bunny, Ingvild Bolme, Melissa Frances, Memory Box and Imaginarium designs. You can find my works in lots of magazines all over the world.

Elena Olinevich
My name is Elena Olinevich and I am from Belarus (Easterm Europe)  I have been scrapping for more than 6 years and started as a cardmaker but at the present moment I am addicted to creating Layouts with some mixed media techniques, with attention to details and layering.  Also I like to do altered art and OTP projects, using fabric, lace and paints.  I adore using flowers, fabric or hand made elements from different materials.  What about my style?..... I like making grungy to look elegant and being a gentle person, all my creations look feminine and soft.

Kelly Foster
Hi everyone!! My name is Kelly Foster, and I am SO excited to be joining the Shimmerz team as an Educator. A little about me - 
I am from the beautiful state of Minnesota (USA), and am a stay at home mom to two beautiful red-headed toddler girls, ages 3 and 1...they keep me on my toes and quite busy. During my spare moments I can be found covered in ink, paint, glue, and paper...I am addicted to all things crafty. Paper crafting is my first love, but I also enjoy baking, sewing, picture taking, and more.
Thank you so much to Stacey and the Shimmerz team for having me. I hope to inspire and show you some fun new ways to use Shimmerz on your projects!
Come  visit me on my personal blog:

Keren Tamir
My name is Keren Tamir and I'm 39 years old. I am a wife to a wonderful husband who is very supportive of my scrapbooking and a mother of two amazing kids; a 12 year old boy and a 6 years old girl. I've been scrapbooking for 10 years and I mainly scrapbook about my family. I love to create and experiment with many different mediums and techniques.
My style is mainly Shabby chic but I love to combine it with mixed media. I use lots of flowers and vines on my projects mixed with pastes, gels and mists. My style is always evolving and that’s one of the things I love about this art.
One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. However over the couple of years, I’ve started to enjoy another aspect of scrapbooking. I love the artistic outlet that it gives me. I love to create and I’m passionate about what I do.
I’m currently a design team member at Prima Marketing, 13 Arts, 2 Crafty, Scrap around the world, Sketchbook 365 and Scrap for Help.
Hope you enjoy my creations!!
