I've just got all our bios together - some are short and sweet....some not so short (you can guess who likes yapping the most then heheehehe). If you click on their names it will take you straight to their blogs so you can start checking out their fab work.
Here goes then - let me introduce the team, in no particular order.


I'm a Wife, Mother, Grandmother, I have 2 grown up children, son Joey 32yrs, & daughter Jenene 27yrs, also 2 grandchildren, Bobby, 21mths, & Katie, 3mths, & Dusty our wee Mini-Schnauzer doggie. I live in N Ireland Co/Antrim and have been crafting for nearly 3yrs now, mainly for family & friends.
I love cardmaking, scrapbooking, colouring with inks, pens, watercolors, and have just found my love for stamping,

Spyder aka Lyn

Hi, I'm Lyn. I live in The New Forest Hampshire, with hubby John. We’ve been married for nearly 35 years. ( we were babies!!) We have two married daughters. Emma and Maria and one grandson, Mason. The first Crafty thing I can remember doing was when I was five. I’d just started school and we made pauper-mâché flower pots and painted them! Wow!! I loved mixing the paint and once I realised you can make glue by mixing flour and water that was it!! I made all sorts of things by covering anything from chicken wire to old lamp stands, turned custard tins into secret money boxes and old books into treasure chests (I still have a dragons head in my attic!!) I was rubbish at school. The only thing I was good at was art and was told the year I left that I was probably dyslexic. In spite of this, I taught Play School for twelve years and helped children who couldn’t read at the local school for a while. I’ve been a riding Instructor, a gardener and a Face Painter who dressed as a clown! I love writing stories. My one claim to fame was coming in the top ten out of 46,000 entries in the Richard and Judy TV show a few years back. But I could never have done this without ‘Word’ and my computer or without the support of Hubby John who encourages me in everything I do. In my teens and right up until the nineties I sold my cartoon strips to local magazines and papers and single cartoons to National Newspapers like the Daily Mirror and The Sun, . I found card making a few years ago after an op that went wrong. Being very bored I found Dawn Bibby on the telly and just couldn’t believe it! I started my blog 'Spyder’s Corner' in February 2009, and the rest is history! My ambition I think, is to have at least one of my stories published and maybe get into digi stamps or even both!



Hello, I'm Susan, I'm nearly 40 (when did that happen???). I've been playing at papercrafting for a few years now and I like to dabble with most things. My current craft passion is digital stamping and colouring. If you haven't tried digi stamps before I HIGHLY recommend it - you can re-size them to suit, and you can print as many times as you like with no smudges or blank bits or blurred bits (LOL, can you tell I'm just rubbish at rubber stamping?)

Hi my name is Liz, I love to craft, knitting, tapestry, embroidery, you name it I've done it, but then I discovered stamping and well that's my passion now, I love to colour them with Copics or Distress ink's both of which I find fun to use, the world of digi stamps is fantastic as you can use them so easily, and change the size to what size you need, so welcome to Stitchy stamps, join in with us and have fun, Hugs Liz xx


I have been married for 27 years,have 2 Children Gary 27 and my daughter Lisa 24. I live in a tiny village in Norfolk which is situated near the Norfolk broads.

Little bio my Sammy says to me lol...well here goes, you asked for it...

My Story,
Umm Born on a Mountain, raised in a cave
Truckin and oh wait wrong story hahahaha' now seriously folks, here it is:

My name is Kathy aka Stitchy..I started psping (that would be paint shop pro) about 6 years ago, starting with the never ending tutorials out there to learn to do this and that...I use to be in MSN groups (before they went exstinct like the dinosaur's lol)...First it was a crocheting group - hence the name "Stitchy" (there was a time in my life you would not catch me without a hook or yarn at least within in reach) and then when we would play the games, they would give us these little siggie tags they called them lmao...well with my personality, you know I just had to learn what that was all about lol..and so I did...well then the siggie tags got to be quite boring to me and I knew there was more out there, so the big thing was scraps (to make these siggie tags lmao)...So I grabbed up a few tuts and away I went to the land of psp again...that only lasted about 6 months, the market was just FLOODED with scrappers and they were all so good lol...Then about 6 months ago a good friend of mine introduced me to the wonderful world of digital Stamps...WOW, I have not even looked back one time...I feel like a steam locomotive when I open up my psp now, I can't get them digi's done fast enough and Oh my the end result's...well you all know what they are...they honestly bring tears to my eyes at times...
Now about me Kathy aka Stitchy the person not the creator...I live in Upstate New York ( I say that because so many mistake when you say I am from NY, they automatically assume you from that crazy city lol)...I was born in a small burb of Pittsburgh PA so many years ago lol...Married to TJ for almost 20 years now...have a teenage daughter 16 named Samantha (you can see her baby picture in one of my digi's appropriately named "Samantha" lol) and I have a 13 year old son named Jacob (he's my next digi lmao)...I also have a pit bull named Holden, a tiny miniature poodle mixed with chiuaua (mean little bit but I love her to death) named Lola or I call her cocoa loco, she is one nutcase lmao...and yes of course we have the fur babies, one old long hair cat (old as the hills ) and one long sleek black cat (mean as the day is long) lmao...and yes, feathered friends too Peeka & Boo my two cocketiels...whew ok think I am done, oh wait, not yet lmao...
I love to laugh and have fun and meet new people, make new friends and just plain ole have a wonderful time....I am so happy to meet everyone that chances across this challenge blog and reads this...

Love & Hugz
Stitchy xx


My name is Liz I live in Ayrshire in Scotland with my husband and dog named Scrappy I have two grown up sons, one grandson, and two lovely grandaughters. I have been crafting in one way or another all my life, but started paper crafting approx 15yrs ago.I started my blog in May 2009 after shutting my own crafts forum I ran for near four years.I also took over the  the Drayton Lady swaps on Trimcrafts Forum for a time, but gave that up to to concentrate on blogging which I have taken to like a duck to water and have loved every single minute of it! I have made so many lovely new friends in the last eight months it is brilliant! I am now on five DT and am loving the challenge and variety of that! I am so looking forward to the opening of "One Stitch at a Time" Challenge blog working with Stitch,Sam & Cheryl and the rest of the team,each and every person on this team are lovely !

Sam - me

Now I'm the joker of the pack and it's my job to keep this lot happy and smiling and I do try....ask my olds and my hubby - they all think I'm very trying!!!
Anyway I'm mainly into my card making although I have made the odd ATC, 4x4 and roundie and even a whole scrapbook from scratch of our sadly departed Billy (our male Staffy).
I love my copics and I think I may be starting to run a few of them out already as I use them nearly all the time. I'm on a few DTs, (Stitchys personal DT, Stamping Dragon Designs and Digital-Ink Co) but this is my biggest challenge to date as I'm not the most organised of people and I'm surprised I've got this far to be honest hahahaha.
I hope you will enjoy our little challenges each fortnight and keep coming back as you guys out there are so talented and I for one love going around and seeing all your fabby work. You give me so much inspiration and ideas (although most do disappear from my head if I don't take notes or something until I stumble upon someone else doing it!)
Well, that is about it for all of us for now. Hopefully you'll all get to know us better and us you over the coming months and we're looking forward to you all turning up for our first challenge on the Sunday 14th February - St Valentines Day
