Welcome to our New *Diva Coffee Break Designs* aka (DCBD) blog

Hello Stampers:

Welcome to our New *Diva Coffee Break Designs* aka (DCBD) blog. We are so excited for the NEW Diva's that are joining us and I knowwe are all going to have a great time inspiring each other!!!

Just a little info about who we are and what we would like to see.....
Every DIVA is a CURRENT Stampin' Up! demonstrator. This was one of the MUST's to be on our team. Therefore, ALL of our creations will be created with CURRENT SU! products and we would ask for your creations to be current SU! only products also. This way, we will encourage each other to use stamp sets we have sitting on the shelves, or show you new ways of using them. Maybe you might even find your next card for a class. ***THIS IS A RULE to be in our challenges and to qualify for our prizes.*** PRIZES??? We will go over those later.

Our challenges are posted on WEDNESDAYS so if you have not signed up to be a follower or in our email, you might want to do so, for a weekly reminder. We (the DIVAS) will have a sneak peak collage of all of our designs using this challenge. They will be linked to our blogs to see the full size creation.

Each week we will have a different challenge ......
~ a sketch challenge
~ a color challenge (3 colors or more)
~ a Big Shot challenge

Your challenge creations will be linked from our blog to yours with Mr Linkie. You will put in your Name and blog address and everyone will be able to go to your blog, take a look around and be inspired by you as well as us.

From time to time, we will have Challenges that have PRIZES!! Everyone loves prizes right?? A us DIVA's LOVE giving prizes. The prizes will be current Stampin' Up! supplies and we will use the number generator to pick the winner for those.

Congratulations to our NEW DESIGN TEAM DIVAS!!!!

Hello stampers!!! We have a BIG announcement today which includes the opening of our NEW blog AND .............

Our NEW Design Team DIVAS!!!!

Please Welcome....

Christine Pleiman
I fell in love the with the Autumn Blessings stamp set in the Country Living Mag and I went to the SU site and found a demo, ordered the set from her, went to a few of her classes...the rest is history. I have always longed to be crafty, with rubber stamps I found a way to release my creativity. I believe that paper crafting have saved my life. I am a wife to my best friend and mother to 4 wonderful children ages 15-12. They are truly my greatest accomplishment. I am a 4th grade teacher. I love to camp with my family, we go for walks and just enjoy spending time together. I also love to read, listen to music (especially when my kids are playing) and dabble with the computer!

Denise Stoner
I am a daughter of the King of Kings.. I am Mom to one son, and Grandma to two grandkids. I've been scrappin for about 18 years and card makin for several years. Scrappin my family history, reliving so many special moments, being able to make others feel special when I can make cards or gifts for them.... it ALL gives me a peace and satidfactionwhile I use my talent that I was created with.My passion is to create cards that will be sold and published while continuing to create and teach what I enjoy SO MUCH.

Elisa Giffin
My name is Elisa from Canada. I have 2 beautiful kids & a wonderful supporting husband. I have been crafting for quite sometime now. I have done everything from knitting, crochet, paper tole & now got addicted to Stampin Up. I have been demonstrator for 1 year & I love what I am doing. I have been using Stampin Up Products for 4 years but only decided to be demonstrator just last year because of all the privileges you can get. I wanted to be part of the team because I wanted to challenge myself, try new things. I also wanted to think outside the box, and let myself just enjoy what I do and share it to others.

Ellie Augustin
Residing in Long Island,NY with my amazing children & Husband, I came into the stamping world 2 years ago. I jumped right into it heads on & became a Demo for Stampin Up 1 year ago. It quickly has become my outlet which I am so blessed to have. In the process I have grown and learned so much. Each day I love to find something new to learn & share. A big bonus is all the amazing friendships I've been blessed with. Stamping is my way of expressing myself. I look forward to being part of this amazing design Team and can't wait to see how much I will get inspired by each of the members! I am proud to be Diva!

Hi I'm Erin Rockafellow, SAHM of two, wife to Jeff since 2002, Stampin' Up! demonstrator since 2008. I've been paper crafting since 1997 and started with scrapbooking and then moved into other areas of the craft. I love sharing what I do with others and showing them how much fun it is to create something with their own hands.

My name is Ilse, I'm originally from Mexico, and I'm now living in St. Catharines, Ontario, near the Niagara Falls. I'm a SAHM to Julian, who is almost 3 years old, and I've been married to my best friend, Dirk, for 6 years. I've been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for 2 years, and I'm enjoying every minute of it!

Happily married to my husband Mike and mom of three kids, Christopher 24, Michael 13, and Samantha 11. I am an at home medical transcriptionist by necessity and a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for sanity for the past 8 years. I live in Central New York and enjoy sharing my passion of stamping and scrapbooking and building new friendships with those I meet. I am honored to have been chosen to participate in this exciting endeavor!

I cannot tell you how excited I am to be joining the Diva team! (Although, I have to admit that I don't drink coffee, so if they will still have me, I'll pretend I'm on the Diva's Coca-Cola Break Design team!) I am a 5th grade teacher, who is passionate about good literature, good music, and good some stamping time! :) I am a mostly hobby SU! demonstrator, who loves the matchy-matchy of the SU colors, paper, inks, and embellishments. I adore challenges, and find myself drawn to them to create, because they help me limit all of the wonderful possibilities that await in paper-crafting land! I can't wait to start my new adventures with the team!

I am Krista from The Netherlands. I’m married and mom to a little boy. When I’m not in my craft room you can find me in my class room. I work as a teacher at a primary school for two days a week. I've been a stamp addict for about 9 years now. I’m really excited to be in the design team and I hope I can inspire/ challenge you all !
I'm married to my best friend, Phil, and we have a blended family which consists of 3 sons, 2 daughters, and 1 dog. I taught school for 23 yrs spending the majority of that time with 1st grade and then with challenged children 3-5 grade. I "retired" several yrs ago to be available for our children as they entered middle & high school. I started stamping and paper crafting because I needed something "for me" to balance out my home, wife, & mom duties. The sense of pride & peace it brings me is just amazing. Stampin' Up! became my product of choice because of the selection and quality of the products & I became a demonstrator because it was an opportunity to meet people, share my passion, and teach.

My name is Shari Taylor and I have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator
for 8 years. I have been the lead demonstrator for the Ronald McDonald House
in Seattle for the last 4 years, and I look forward to going and stamping with the families once a month.
When I am not stamping, I am the Health Tech at a local Elementary school.

My name is Stephanie Zeto. My husband and I live in Tennessee and are blessed with 5 children. I have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for about 10 years. I love the daily escape of stamping and sharing my passion (aka obsession) with others. I am very excited to join the Diva Design Team and hope I can inspire you!

My name is Tammy Fite, and I've been stamping for 10 years!! I am married with two wonderful sons, ages 11 and 13. I am currently a member of the Late Night Stampers Convention Design Team, and am happy about joining the Divas Coffee Break Team!
