We are having such a great time introducing you to our newest Design Team members - today we are saying hello to Lori Williams and Tammy Tutterow!
name: Lori Williams
lives in: Hendersonville, NC
why we love her: The detailing on Lori's work is incredible, her handmade delicate embellishments are lovely, her tutorials are easy to follow and full of great techniques - we just knew we had to have her!
a little bit about her: I'm a passionate crafter that shares the love with my sister Gini. I started in pottery yrs ago & moved into jewelry design/metal in college. I started working with paper w/the birth of my 1st son 12 years ago. I only serve on teams I'm passionate about & can promote that is why I'm so thrilled to be a part of the Xyron Design Teams. My style is detailed clean & I enjoy making realistic handmade flowers. I also have a wicked sense of humor and can always find something happy in every situation.
name: Tammy Tutterow
lives in: Belleville, IL
why we love her: We have long admired Tammy's talents! Her use of techniques to turn every day items in to works of art inspires us, and her willingness to share those techniques through tutorials makes us feel like we can become better crafters and encourages us to step "outside the box".
a little bit about her: I am a lifelong artist and crafter. I love all types of crafts but find my true crafting passion in papercrafts, ribbonwork, and sewing. I love to combine elements of all three into my projects. I have been an instructor and project designer in the papercraft/scrapbook industry since 2005 and my projects have been published in several books, magazines, and product catalogs and have been featured on television. I teach technique based classes at stores, conventions, and online. When I am not creating, I am a wife and mother of three who loves anything and everything shabby, chippy, and vintage. I love to scour flea markets for old treasures. I am also a fair weather gardener so if the spring breezes are blowing, you will probably find me playing in the dirt in my flower garden.
Welcome Lori and Tammy! So excited to see what you create!
