Jodie Mackrell

Owner and Designer of Bugaboo Digi Stamps

I am the owner and creator of Bugaboo Stamps I have created graphics for digitizers for 8 years now and just found out about digi stamps. So far I am loving this new little venture! I am a WAHM of 5 kids. 3 girls 2 boys. Aged 3 to 17 I live in Saskatchewan, Canada.

I love drawing, poetry, and anything crafty when I find the time. I like to read V.C Andrews books, and have been a fan of Bon Jovi music for 20 years! Stop by my blog and check it out

Tammy Miller

Design Team Coordinator/Designer
I am so excited to be a part of this very talented team. I am 44 years old, I have been married for 23 yrs and have a 22 year old son and a 19 old daughter who is away at college so I love when she comes home to visit we have so fun just hanging out.

I have been crafting all my life but in the last 7 year have discovered paper crafting. I started out Scrapbooking then was introduced to card making and fell in love with the instant gratification that card making gives. I love the paper, the ribbon, the embellishments, glitter, ok I like it all! . Creating cards is my passion with digi stamps quickly becoming an all time favorite obsession second only to my cricut and Scal. Stop by and check out my blog and come back often

I have been a crafter for over 20 years. I started out scrapbooking before most people I know using rubber cement and construction paper - yikes! I switched over to Creative Memories in the late 90s and sold it for over 5 years, but then with a busy family life, found scrapbooking to be too time consuming. I then ran my own business where I designed and sold jewelry and gift baskets for a number of years until I met my current SU demo who introduced me to stamping.

Let's just say my small hobby has taken on major proportions! I'm obsessed with stamping and card making, but have recently become a fan of altering things as well. I love working with digi stamps! Stop by and check out my blog

Design Team Member

Hello, I am a wife (38 years), a mother, a friend and a very proud grandmother to six beautiful boys, ages running from 1 month to 18 years old. I began stamping 8 years ago after attending a Stampin Up workshop and immediately I became addicted to stamps! Recently, I have found a new addiction with digital images. I love to make cards and find inspiration in the many challenges posted on blogs each week. I am very excited to be joining the Bugaboo design team and I can’t wait to meet and be inspired by each and every one of you. Stop by my blog and stay for a spell

I have been crafty my entire life but only started scrapbooking after my daughter was born in March 2006. After making my own scrapbooking layouts for a year or so, I was introduced to stamping by friends at a local shop. I was instantly impressed by the flexibility and wide range of things you can do with stamps and ink! I soon went to work at the same local stamp shop, and joined their design team until we moved from New Jersey to North Carolina in February 2009. I have met so many excellent friends in my stamp world, most notably those on Splitcoaststampers. As an ever-evolving stamper, I am always excited to try something new. I look forward to sharing what I am doing, and hope that everyone will be just as enthusiastic as I am!! Visit me on my blog

Did you ever receive something that you never knew you wanted, but now that you have you simply can’t live without it? That’s kind of what like making cards is to me. Nearly five years ago my best friend dragged me to a “stamp camp” kicking and screaming. By about the third of five stations, I was all over it like white on rice. . .;) For a while all I did was go to “stamp camps,” buy supplies, and nose about SCS. But then I FINALLY got up the nerve to sign-up for my first SCS swap. The rest, as they say, is history. You can read all the yadda. . .yadda. . .yadda on my blog at My sincerest thanks to Jodie and Tammy for helping me to take this one step further as a DT member for Bugaboo Stamps.

We have a wonderful little girl, who is 2 and is growing up to be a crafter like her mom:) I have been crafting for about 10 years now and have been addicted to since the time I started LOL I love to try new things and always willing to try something new at least once. I started out scrapbooking and when I found Stampin' Up, I fell in love with stamping. Close to My Heart introduced me to acrylic stamps and I was hooked! I will create just about anything these days can't wait to teach my daughter the joys of paper crafting. Stop by and visit me at my blog http//

I have been married for 43+ years, am a retired high school teacher who still does some substitute teaching, and am raising a 17 year old granddaughter. In my spare time, I enjoy reading and traveling. My entire life I have enjoyed crafting. As a young child, I embroidered pillow cases for all my relatives and wove potholders and sold throughout my neighborhood. As I got older, I knitted, did crewel embroidery, tried crocheting, took painting lessons, started a quilt (I'm sure you get the picture!) About eight years ago, I started scrapbooking because I wanted someway to organize memories of our travels. I enjoyed it--but didn't love it. Then one of my friends invited me to a Stampin Up party, and I was hooked. I started taking card making classes, and then found Splitcoast Stampers. Finally, after all these years, I have found a craft that I love! Come check out my blog - Sackman

I am a 56 year old paper artist and I love what I do. From card making and scrapbooking to altering (painting and coloring on) paper and anything else that I can get my hands on, I love what I do. I like bling, flowers, lace and ribbons and my motto is "More Is Better"

I have been doing this for what seems like forever and I enjoy sharing what I do with others. I teach technique classes, I have open house at my house twice a month I have a blog ( and I belong to several forums. I have been known to share techniques in the isle at the local craft stores. I love what I do.
