Happy Monday We R fans! We’re very excited to introduce you to two more of our 2016 Design Team members today. Introducing Laura Silva and Shellye McDaniel!
Hi! My name is Laura and I blog over at Laura’s Crafty Life. My goal is to inspire others to craft a creative and well-lived life. I share simple craft projects, themed party ideas, organizing tips and tricks, and our adventures in renovating our home. I love to craft and have been making things for as long as I can remember. My mom inspired my love of being creative. I live in Northern Arizona with my husband and two school-aged kids.

Favorite We R tool or paper collection: We R Memory Keepers Banner Punch Board
Favorite crafting tip: Don’t be scared to try new crafts or ideas. Some of my best projects have come from what initially I thought were going to be total craft fails.

I live on a Northeast Texas ranchette with my husband of 25 years and three children ages 22, 17 and 13. I work PRN as a Labor & Delivery Scrub Nurse. I love all sorts of crafting: papercrafting, hand-lettering, home decor, knitting…I’ll give just about anything a try (although I failed miserably at tole painting!). I also enjoy trying new recipes, perusing Pinterest, organizing, cleaning, singing and visiting with family and friends! I have been a crafter for as long as I can remember and a papercrafter since 1997. I have served on many manufacturer design teams over the years and teach at my local scrapbook store, as well as Big Picture Classes.

Favorite We R tool or paper collection: Evolution Advanced and the “Yuletide” Collection has been used for the past three years!
Favorite crafting tip: Don’t trash it! There really isn’t any mistake that’s too big to fix. Use embellishments, ribbon or even punch a hole to cover up a mistake.
