Design Team Post


Connie is a retired special education teacher living in Barnegat, NJ with her husband, David.  Between them they have 4 children (ages 28 to 46), 7 grandchildren (ages 14 to 23) and 4 great-grandchildren (ages 6 month to 4 years old).  As an avid crafter for more than 20 years, Connie enjoys working in many different craft media, including scrapbooking, card making, and other papercrafting. 

            Initially Connie started working with the Wishblade in 2002, but as the Cricut became more popular she switched over to the Cricut Personal Cutter.  Within a year, Connie upgraded to the Cricut Expression in 2006 and has never looked back.  She is totally in love with the Cricut and uses at least one die cut, if not more, in all her creations. 
            One of Connie’s favorite projects is a wedding card box that was made for a granddaughter’s wedding     More than 30 flowers of varying sizes were used for this box…and each flower uses 4 to 6 flower shapes.  The Cricut was really helpful.
