Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters,  in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends.  I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors. I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork. Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers.  All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping.  The coordinators Marilyn and Tracy along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls. We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies .The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis.  We really are friendly bunch and would love to see your creations so please feel free to contact us and visit the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.

Please welcome our newest designer to the neighborhood!
Koren of  Popkoren Gifts
Hello 613 Avenue Create Players! 

I am so happy to be the newest member of the design team here at 613 Avenue Create. 
My name is Koren, I live just outside of Baltimore, Maryland in a small water oriented community called Pasadena. I have a wonderful boyfriend, Tim, and together we have four children. My two children Cailin (12) and Hayden (10), his daughter Olivia (6), and our son Dexter (7 months). I have been crafting since I was very young. When I first began my hobby, I loved to create scrapbooks of my friends as I grew up, and I have also always kept a journal.  Over time, I began to do more stamping and cardmaking.  It has since become my primary creative outlet.  Blogging became an interest of mine this year and has quickly become a way to combine two of my passions together. I love to create all types of crafts, and am amazed at the obscure locations that I find my motivation and inspiration.  I certainly hope I create items that will inspire you as well.
