Introducing a New Creative Team Member!

by Hero Arts August 31, 2017 28 Comments

It is always a happy day when we welcome a talented new Creative Team member! We are excited to welcome Ilina Crouse to the team! She will inspire you with her talent and enthusiasm.  

Let's get to know Ilina a bit...

I am Ilina and you may have seen me as a guest designer a few times on the Hero Arts blog and hopping with the wonderful creative team for different releases. I live in Atlanta, GA with my wonderful husband of 12 years and our 3 little monkeys: Anna-5, Milena-4 and Jason-2. As you can see I have my hands full. During the day I work as an Electrical Engineer/Bid Manager for Siemens. I know it doesn't sound fun at all, but it is (at least for me), as it involves creativity, but a different kind of one. At night I am a crafter.

I have been making cards since I was a little child and still lived in Macedonia (South Eastern Europe) where supplies were limited so I had to get really creative. My very first stamp I purchased since moving to the US a little over 13 years ago was by Hero Arts and I fell in love with the products instantly (I still have that stamp-it survived quite a few moves within the last 13 years). I love simple and clean designs and I love to experiment with different techniques and coloring mediums. My favorite products are the Bold Prints and the Color Layering stamp sets.

I am honored (and excited beyond words) to join the Creative Team and I hope to inspire you with my creations.

Here is one of her beautiful creations:

To see detail on how Ilina made this card and explore her other cards head over to her blog at www.ilinacrouse.blogspot.com.

Welcome to the Hero Arts family Ilina! We can't wait to see the inspiration you have in store.
