Introducing a New Creative Team Member!
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:
