Introducing one of our Freestyle Collage Designers!

Today I am thrilled to introduce one of our Freestyle Collage Designers. This type of designing is really cool...I love the look and was first introduced to it by Paper Crafts magazine. 

When I think of this designer, I think of elegance and sophistication...I love the way she uses embellishments and papers and textures to make such fabulous cards!!!

Let's welcome, Karen Davis!!

Hi, my name is Karen Davis and I live in Auckland, New Zealand. Graham and I have been married for 20 years and we share our home with three dear old cats, and one darling rabbit.

I work from home designing and writing patterns for quilts, bags, and softies, for my business, Pieceful Life Designs. I have also been a quilt tutor for 8 years.

My spare time is spent making cards. I started dabbling in paper crafting seven years ago, but it wasn’t until the end of last year that I became aware of the huge online card making community and challenges.

I am delighted to be a part of The Card Concept’s amazingly talented design team.
