Hi, I'm Samantha Mann and I couldn't be happier to be part of this team! My husband and I have lived all over the US, from Washington State to Florida, but we're currently in hot, humid, coastal South Carolina! We have two little boys (who I usually call my little menn)! I have always been in love with school supplies (ever since elementary school when i would save my nickels to buy cute pencils or erasers!) and that love just grew and developed into my crazy obsession (read: passion!) of paper crafting! I love making cards and even dabble with the occasional scrapbook layout! I tend to lean towards clean and simple design, but not always! I am all about learning new techniques from fellow crafters! I'm definitely quirky, and love to make playful, humorous sentiments for my cards (and layouts!)! I work full time for an advertising company and spend every other moment I can paper crafting, reading and enjoying the little moments in everyday family life.
My husband, two sweet kids and I live in South Dakota. I grew up in the Phoenix suburbs, but since high school, I’ve lived all over the country. I’m an avid papercrafter, bright color lover, digi chick, Brady Bunch watcher, non-fiction book reader, and expert Polly Pockets dresser. In my spare time, I work as a freelance consultant for state and Federal education and special education programs. I am also on the CAS-ual Fridays and Paper Smooches SPARKS Design Teams, and I have been fortunate enough to have been published in Paper Crafts Magazine and CARDS Magazine. I’m thrilled to be joining the Newton’s Nook team! I love the whimsy of the stamp designs.
Aren't they awesome? Come back tomorrow for to meet the last of the Design Team!
