We are excited to share our new group of designers. Their term will be from Aug - Jan (2014).  Each of these ladies brings so much fun and wonderful creativity to the table and we're excited that they are joining us! 
We've also split them in to 2 teams: Team Yumi & Team Fumi. 
It really doesn't matter though, because we're all one big happy ohana. 
 ("Ohana" means family)

 Senior Designer, Rosemary Shaner Bridges (2012)
I'm a military brat who now resides in Midlothian, Texas (from Goldsby, Oklahoma) with my wonderful husband and sweet 5-year-old boy. I was introduced to scrapbooking by a friend in 1996, but a few years ago, I switched gears to card-making and 3-D projects. I love creating, whether it be in my craft room or in the kitchen...I love to cook! I'm so honored and blessed to be a part of this amazing team!
Fun fact: I'm a military brat who spent a majority of my younger years in Germany. Even went to University of Maryland in Munich, Germany for 2 years. 
 Must have Crafty Tool: Sharp Scissors since I fussy cut almost all my images.
My Crafting Style: Symmetrical with ribbon and a bow somewhere. 
Welcome to new team members:

Cebelica (2013)
I'm a chatty girl from a tiny European country. I love travelling and meeting new people. Pretty much all of my free time I spend behind my desk crafting, although I also like to watch a good movie every now and then. Or even better, a cartoon - I lost count on how many times I've seen Lilo and Stitch (my absolute favourite cartoon) and Wall-e. What can I say, I'm a big kid. ;) I like learning and trying new things. My "things I must try" list is getting longer and longer. I don't think I have to worry about ever being bored
Fun fact: I LOVE butterflies but moths scare the hell out of me
Must have crafty tool: My Big Shot. I use it ALL the time
My craft style: Goes from cute to vintage, from cards to mini albums, from altered items to jewelry... What can I say, I love trying new things. ;)
 Corinne "Rinne" Mercado (2013)
My name is Corinne Reyes Mercado, aka Rinne in Blogland.  I hail from California and am a wifey of five years, a mommy to two little boys, and a registered nurse by day.  When I am not crafting or hanging out with my fam, you can find me on Instagram (@rinnester), at the movies, or eating out.
Fun fact: One goal on my bucket list is to swim with whales!  Crazy, I know!  I can barely swim, but I just find whales to be majestic.  And to be able to swim with these giant creatures, I know that it'll be such an amazing experience!!
My must have crafty tool: Paper cutter.
My craft style: I tend to mix lots of patterned paper and layer on embellishments! 
Olivia Marmara (2013)
 I am a mother of three personality filled girls in NJ and work part-time as an emergency room LCSW social worker. I love making cards, layouts, entering challenges and have been doing it since 2008.
 Fun fact: I am a diehard college basketball fan...Go Tarheels fanatic so watch out for my Carolina blue face painting lol. 
 My must have craft tool:  Rhinestones/pearls. Use them all the time!
My craft style: I'm a lover of bright colors, layers, embellishments, sparkle and patterned papers. Definitely I am not a CAS or Vintage type girl. I love to try new techniques and use various styles of stamps, digital images and die cuts.

(2013) Senior Designer, Denice Bartucci
 "I'm a midwestern gal who finds a lot of the inspiration for my projects come from my family, which consists of "Papa Bear" and our 4 fab kiddos....they are my never-ending source of support and my biggest/bestest critics. I've been stamping and scrapbooking for almost 15 years and am passionate about both crafts. I could talk endlessly about all the latest embellies and techniques, and find the internet to be an endless source of new projects to try. I'm looking forward to fun and creating with Y&FH!"
Fun fact: I LOVE going to the movies...action, horror, romance, Pixar...I LOVE them all.  
Must have crafty tool: ATG Glue Gun

Melissa Oeters (2013)
Hi, I'm MelissaO.  I am a stay at home mom to 4 wonderful kids, and I also do volunteer work for a few animal rescues.  I've been into paper arts, in one way or another, for 18 years but it seems my very favorite thing is coloring!  I love working with my Copic markers bringing life to stamped images.  I'm super excited to be designing for Yumi & Fumi and hope I can inspire you to create as well.

Blankina (2013)
I was born in the Netherlands in 1969 and grew up in a lovely small town with my parents and sister. Have always been crafty, as a kid I loved to draw. After my commercial studies I went abroad, I have worked in England, Germany and finally ended up in Italy in '96. Speak four languages Dutch, English, German and Italian. Now I live in the country side outside Rome and I am SAHM of twins and wife to a patient husband. Love to make cards and can spend hours in my craft room. Opening my blog has opened a new world to me in all senses. I have met the most wonderful crafty people around the world which have inspired me...
Fun fact: I am very precise but messy. Does it sounds strange??
I cannot send a photo of my craft room...seems like a hurricane just passed.

But I know to find every bit I need and in this way I feel more inspired.

Being creative is not a hobby it is a way of life, I have pinned this onto quotes board.

My must have crafty tool:  Crafty tool my little green Cuttlebug, I love to cut dies...and have collected a lot during the years.

But a life without my sweet stamps and Copics seems impossible..
My craft style? I like a lot of different styles, CAS, Vintage, Monochrome, Romantic.. you name it.  Guess I love to match colours and bits.
