Welcome our new Design Team

Globecraft Piccolo Design Team

Angela Crandall
Mistress of Mayhem, Domestic Goddess in Training, Maker of Lists & Stuff, Angi - that's me! I have been blessed to be the wife of a hottie for over 20 years, mom to 4 'keep me on my toes' extraordinary people (+2 fur babies), artist in residence in our crazy, but happy home. I love texture and layers, color, upcycling and most of all experimenting with new techniques and product. When I'm not busy getting my art on in the studio, I'm hanging out with my family, baking in the kitchen (in an altered apron, of course!) or enjoying the beach. I am ridiculously excited to be designing for Globecraft & Piccolo!

Leslierahye Strickland
Wife of 21 years to my soul mate. Mother to two amazing free-willed beings--son Will, 13, and daughter Samantha, 7. Daughter of devoted, loving parents. I've been crafting and creating since before I can remember, dabbling in everything from sewing, to oil painting, to scrapbooking, to photography to beadwork to crafty crafts--and many things in between. I've gifted my work. I've sold my work. I've used my work.  I love to share projects and techniques with crafters of all skills. I continue to explore in creativity to keep myself fresh. I love mixed media and upcycled crafting. I love making my own embellishments to coordinate with my projects.  I am thrilled to be a part of the Globecraft Piccolo Design Team! I can remember 20 years ago making my holiday cards with silver embossing powder and a candle--I had purchased it at the Hallmark store--you could get gold or silver. A few years later I was introduced to the modern style of stamping including artsy stamping with ultra thick enamels! I was in love! Creating for Globecraft Piccolo is a dream job as I will be enjoying my favorite powders and enamels and incorporating the fantastic chipboard pieces into the mix! I can't wait to share with you all and hopefully inspire you along the way!

I am thrilled to be working with Stacey of Sweet Stamps and the Globecraft & Piccolo team.  I will be heading up the team and I think we will have great things in store for you.  I have been a crafter of some sort all my life but did not start stamping/card making until the summer of 2005. I met Stacey at her store here in town and the rest is history

Teresa Atkinson
I'm Teresa Atkinson (aka MaggieGraceCreates) and I am so excited to be working with Globecraft and Piccolo as well as the other talented ladies on this team. I am a woman of that certain midlife area of age with two beautiful adult daughters, one very spoiled dog, and one seriously crazy cat. I learned to crochet as a child by watching my Grandmother and have always been involved in some kind of creative project. Because "stash building and resourceful use of items" is a specialty, I was always the Mom in charge of the school projects for all of my girls' friends. I consider myself a mixed media artist with a strong focus in upcycled materials. My style is a little on the shabby side but not over the top feminine. I ADORE paper crafting and jewelry crafting. And I love how the G&P products can be used for more than just card making. I love to try unusual applications of materials and I sure hope that I can inspire people, much as I have been inspired by seeing other designers.
