Guest Designer, Nina Brackett

We are very lucky to have such a talented lady with us this month, Nina Brackett! You've probably seen her beautiful designs in magazines or manufacturer blogs. Nina has shared her story with Paper Crafts magazine, click here to read is truly inspirational! Enjoy the creations she has shared with Emma's Paperie.....

Meet Nina:

"I'm Nina Brackett, a blessed wife to a wonderful man and mom to 3 sweet girls. I'm a Filipino-American who currently calls Croatia my home. My husband works as a Bible professor here in the last 12 years. I've been paper crafting since Art class in kindergarten, but more seriously and professionally since Spring 2009 when I started my craft blog, Crafting in Croatia. I'm a stamp illustrator for Gina K Designs and a product designer for Spellbinder Paper Arts. I am thankful to have been published in several Craft magazines and be a part of the design team of a couple paper craft manufacturers. I love making and giving away handmade cards and other paper crafted projects. I also teach a card class regularly as a way to reach out to women in our small town in Croatia. My craft style has evolved over the years, but my current one seems to lean more towards the shabby and vintage. I want to thank Cindy and the Emma's Paperie team for giving me the opportunity to Guest design for them. It was such a treat to work with the great products they offer in their store."
