We are proud to introduce the Vintage Street Market Design Team!

** Keri Babbitt **

Hi there, I’m Keri Babbitt. I’m a mom of two, who’s been happily crafting since high school. I love capturing life’s moments and expressing myself artistically through scrapbooking.

I’m obsessed with anything vintage and love trying new techniques, as well as finding creative, eco‐friendly ways to make my supplies S‐T‐R‐E‐T‐C‐H. I love to experiment with any and every scrapping style, from minimalist to shabby chic. I am often a grid‐based, multi‐photo scrapper, and enjoy finding well‐ designed ways to include lots of photos.

Other than crafting, I enjoy reading, contemporary dance, antiquing, and the outdoors. I’m a huge fan of Vintage Street Market’s gorgeous & nostalgic projects, and am thrilled to be joining the other inspiring ladies on the design team!

** Heidi Blankenship **

Hello, my name is Heidi Blankenship and I live in Minnesota with my husband Eric and two boys, Dusty and Evan. I have been involved with paper crafting for over twenty years.

I was introduced to stamping in 1988 and, over the years, I have taught many classes at the local stamping and scrapbooking stores. I love to create a large spectrum of projects with a broad range of styles, but I lean towards the vintage, artsy style.

I’ve been very fortunate to work with some wonderful companies in the industry. I am currently on the Spellbinders™ Blog Team, JustRite Stampers, Crafty Secrets, Discount Cardstock and Really Reasonable Ribbon Design Teams. I have been published in a variety of national and international magazines, catalog/idea books, newsletters, sales ads and packaging. My design work has also been featured on Scrapbooking Memories (now Scrapbook Soup), QVC, HSN, Creative Home Arts and Create and Craft TV in the UK just to name a few.

I love creating cards, altered arts, home décor, and scrapbooking— traditional and digital. In my spare time I also enjoy spending time with family and friends, photography, floral design, painting, gardening and jewelry making. To see more of my artwork and step-by-step tutorials please visit my blog Embellished Dreams.

** Andrea Budjack **

Hi, my name is Andrea and live in the sunny state of Florida. I currently am a stay-at-home mom to two quickly growing, energetic boys and love every moment.

Crafting has been an active part of my life for the past seven years and make sure to incorporate it into my life each and every day. Color rules my creative world and anything and everything that has it is scattered around my craft table. Always looking for new techniques, materials and just making sure it is still enjoyable.

** Julie Campbell **

Hi!  My name is Julie Campbell.  My husband Roger and I have been married for 22 years, and we have three  beautiful daughters; a junior in college, and a sophomore and a freshman in high school.  I couldn't ask for a more wonderful and supportive family!

My love for all things vintage goes way back…I really can’t remember a time in my life that I preferred something new to something wonderfully aged.  This is most likely because I grew up surrounded by the antiques, knick-knacks, furniture, recipes, photos and stories of my ancestors.   My life and theirs…beautifully combined.

I’m so excited to be on the Design Team for Vintage Street Market—like being a kid in a  candy store for me!  From gorgeous Victorian vintage  to the fabulously kitschy—I love it all!

** Amy Duff **

My name is Amy Duff and I reside in Virginia, just outside of DC. I am married to my best friend and truly British husband named Simon.

I have a teenage daughter who was diagnosed with Autism at age 5. I often share my experiences about this ongoing battle to conquer social settings and other sensory issues on my blog which showcases my love for paper crafts.

During the week, I teach preschool at a local church which I absolutely love! I started creating cards at a young age and soon found myself venturing into altered art and scrapbooks. Today, I focus my creative talent on cards and altered art primarily. Thank you for this incredible honor to be a part of the Vintage Street Market design team!

** Cheryl McAdam **

My name is Cheryl McAdam and I live in sunny Southern California with my husband and three daughters. I have been crafting since I was a child. Both of my parents were always making stuff, my mom sewing clothes and dolls and my dad creating interesting stuff out of found objects. There was never a shortage of supplies for me to create with. Just a little dig into Moms scrap stash or jewelry box (that got me in big trouble) or a tour through the garage usually wielded some fascinating tidbits. Vintage “stuff” has always been a magnet for me, and transforming something that has otherwise been discarded into something new, useful, and pretty is so rewarding.

In 1999 I started scrapbooking and a new love – paper crafting became a huge part of my life. I began teaching scrapbooking and paper arts classes at local stores in 2001 and found out how much I love sharing the craft with others.

I have been a Tattered Angels endorsed educator since 2008 and I am thrilled to be a part of the Vintage Street Market Design team.

** Shellye McDaniel **

I'm a wife of 20 years, mom to three great kids and live on a small ranch in Northeast Texas. I work part-time as a Labor & Delivery nurse and the rest of the time I love perusing flea markets and antique shops, watching Andy Griffith reruns (I own ALL eight seasons on DVD) and of course, paper-crafting of all kinds! I also enjoy baking, knitting, reading, singing in the church choir and watching a smidge of reality TV.

With three children who are very active in and outside of school activities, I spend quite a bit of time watching the boys play football, basketball and baseball and my daughter does ballet, jazz and tap...whew!

I also design for Imaginisce, My Scrapbook Nook and I Heart Ippity (Unity Stamps). I look forward to creating with Vintage Street Market more than I can say...I absolutely love all things vintage :)

** Connie Mercer **

I am a wife and a mom. I am also “Nini” to five beautiful “grands”. I have been scrapbooking for over twelve years and I know I will never tire of it. I hope to never lose the thrill of pretty paper or shiny embellies!

I live on a ranch in the Texas hill country with my hubby and all of our deer, cows and armadillos. Most of my inspiration comes from the “grands”, but also from the wonder of nature that surrounds me every day. Living on a ranch has enabled me to capture unique photos that I am able to share with my family and friends. I'm also known to throw in some vintage flair when ever I can and monthly junkin' trips are a must!!!

** Diane Payne **

Hi, I'm Diane Payne. I reside in Dallas, Texas with my wonderful husband, our two teenage children and two adorable dogs. When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, running, boating, photography, and looking for vintage treasures at flea markets. My favorite vintage find is my 1930's Underwood typewriter, which I use as decor and for journaling on my layouts.

I started scrapbooking in 1997, shortly after my daughter was born, and I enjoy it as much today as I did then. Although I love recording the details of our life, I enjoy the creative process of scrapbooking as much as the memory keeping. I scrapbook with a variety of photo styles including current, vintage and Hipstamatic prints. I've been blessed with various designer opportunities over the last year and have had the pleasure of being published in Scrapbook Trends and Creating Keepsakes magazines. I love sharing my work with others and am excited to be a part of the Vintage Street Market design team.
