And now to meet our fabulous new Design Team members

We had an amazing response to our Design Team Call, it took a team of 4 of us to study the entries and it was incredibly difficult to decide....I really wish we had more than 2 spaces.
Anyway on to our two super new ladies who will be showcasing their fantastic projects over the coming months.
First, I would like you to meet Roc Nicholas:

I am basically a self taught artist. I am an instructor, writer and rubber stamp designer. I am currently a design team member for Stampotique. I am an intermediate Copic certified designer. I have been published in magazines and have been a contributor to a book. I love to journal, doodle, use rubber stamps, incorporate recyclable objects in my art and have a lot of laughs in the process.
You can find Roc's blog HERE.
And now a sample of some of Roc's amazing work:

And now to meet......Corinne Rollet
My name is Corinne. I am 47 years old and I live with my family in a small town near Rennes (France). In the crafting world, I am known as "Coco" or sometimes “Coconut” as I have sometimes my head in the clouds..

I am a self-made French artist that really LOVES learning and experimenting new techniques and products all the time! 
Maybe you can see a link with my job… I am an engineer working part time in a European research lab, so searching and sharing my experiences on my blog is just completely obvious for me.
In addition, creating and making a little bit of art every day and interacting with other artists on blogland has really helped me grow and keep growing in making artistic stuff, but also recalls me that I still have a lot to learn!
In the past I did not believe that I could do anything creative, although I had a dreamy temperament and a lot of imagination… But when I discovered scrapbooking in 2009 (acting as a therapy first, following a huge sorrow for me as I lost a young girl of cancer…) it was a revelation for me - I could create beautiful things without drawing, and that makes sense for me. Since then I never stopped… and now, it is much more than therapy only, it has become a huge passion and even my raison d’être!

I love to create cards, layouts, mini-books, altered art, art journaling pages and Tags and ATCs. About my style, I don’t think I have a particular style, but my projects are most often very coloured and full of details... However what I love above all is creativity and beauty, so anything gorgeous and well done can looks perfect in my eyes, even if it is in a very clean style. But as far as I am concerned I can spend hours on some tiny details sometimes and progress as fast as a snail!  Fortunately as long as I have inks and paints under my fingers and nails, I don’t see the time go by, I just create with a joyful abandon and all things are going well... 
Some of you may already well know me as I am used to participate overseas to many inspirful challenges I love. I had the great honour to be Guest DT in February 2013 on one of my favorite’s challenge blogs: Stampotique Designers.
But today, this is my first true engagement in a very talented design team, and I am very thrilled to start this journey with Tando Creative. I LOVE Tando’s products so much… They offer many different ways of integrating them beautifully and creatively in any project!! Hope you will like what I will show you with them, as I feel me ready for that new chapter of my artistic life, and will try to do my best for Tando. Now I look forward to the challenges and the additional inspiration it brings!

Most of my work can be seen on my blog. Would be very happy about your visit, and do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions 
And a selection of Coco's stunning work:
