Lori Boyd - Design Team Coordinator

Hello stamping friends! I am so happy you are here (again) today, to share in all the fun of introducing the Claudia & Company design team. 
I am so blessed, and honored to introduce you to our design team coordinator:
My wonderful friend
Lori Boyd
Yes, the one and only designer of our Puddle Jumpers! Not only was I thrilled when Lori accepted my invitation to design for Claudia & Company, but she immediately offered to coordinate the design team. Wow! I can't tell you how much I enjoy working with Lori; she has even been designing for Die Cuts R Us for a few months now. Above all, I am happy to call her my sister in Christ!

And so... here is Lori!

Hi My name is LORi BOYD. The most important thing I'd like you to know about me is that I love the Lord with all my heart!  He is the King of my life!!!  He has blessed me with a wonderful, Godly husband, Eric, who loves me just the way I am and lovingly supports my addiction to stamping, scrapping and card making!!  He is my Prince Charming and I truly believe God made him just for me!  It is here in the beautiful Bluegrass State aka Kentucky...that I love, homeschool and care for, 5 sweet little bugs who call me Mommy!!   Together Eric and I have 3 - Hannah(13), Landon(6) and Ella(5) and feel honored to have been blessed with 2 little boys, McCoy(3) and Jussie(2), who needed a good and safe home. I am very thankful for my family.  I am also thankful for all the wonderful, kind and caring friends that God has brought into my life through stamping, paper crafting and blogging!! 
I started stamping/card making occasionally 4 years ago, but have been stamping on a regular basis and joining DTs since last January.  I love card making...It's like therapy to me!!!  I'm owner/DT member The Pink Elephant Challenge blog.  I design for Die Cuts R Us, Mo's Digital Pencil, Bee Crafty, Crazy 4 Challenges and The Wild Flower Kids.  Recently, I have been blessed to add stamp artist to my design resume with the release of my Lollipop Collection at Stamping Bella.  I'm a Scrap Club leader, Owner and Artist for my small at home business, By LORi Designs, where I hand paint on plates, platters, tote bags, etc.  I have always enjoyed everything creative...Quilting, Painting and Photography, just to name a few.  I love designer paper. My favorite embellishments are ribbon and buttons.  I am crazy for Polka Dots and the greatest color in the world is PINK!!! 

When Claudia asked if I'd design a new line of stamps for her, I was completely honored!!  The Lollipops along with my new collection called The Puddle Jumpers at Claudia and Company, God has blessed me with a way to help provide for my large family. Claudia is not just an Online Store owner to me, she is one of my greatest friends. I feel so blessed to not only call her my friend, but to be able to be by her side as she begins this adventure!!  
Thank You Claudia!!  
Thank You Lord for all your blessings!!
