New Design Team Leader--CHERYL VALADEZ !!!

Hi Everyone, I am sad to announce that Arlene has had to step back from our Design Team, but, she has agreed to stay on and we hope she can do a tutorial from time to time for us!!! Thanks for sharing your many talents Arlene!!

I am also announcing Cheryl Valadez to our Design Team. She will be helping us continue to teach and inspire our CCC members. I am excited to have her on our team to share her Copic Coloring techniques. :> 

Here is her profile information and photo. On behalf of the CCC club, I welcome you Cheryl!!

Hello, my name is Cheryl and I have been a crazy stamper for roughly 14 years.  I am fortunate to live in sunny Albuquerque, NM, smack dab in the Land of Enchantment, with my wonderful husband and our 3 furry faced feline house guests.  A couple of years ago, I gave up the hum drum routine of a managerial job and now focus entirely on cardmaking and teaching card classes at the local rubber stamp store.  It’s certainly a lifestyle change, but everyday it’s a joy to wake up and spend the day at my craft desk, up to my elbows in paper, stamps, and of course, Copics ;D
Until I found Copics, I steered clear of coloring images for my cards.  I wasn’t comfortable with pencils and other types of markers didn’t quite give me the finished result I was looking for.  Now, I can’t imagine a world without color and Copics.  What a dreary place that would be!
I am fortunate to have the opportunity to work with several wonderful design teams including Copic Creations, Tiddly Inks, and Bombshell Stamps.  Please stop by my blog at and say  "hello".
