Guest Designer; Nina Brackett



I'm a Filipino-American who now calls beautiful Croatia home, which I share with my wonderful husband and 3 girly girls. I was delighted to discover that my love for paper crafting could extend beyond card making into product design a few years ago. I have had the awesome privilege to work with some amazing companies as an illustrator/designer. I currently work as a product designer for Penny Black, Inc., The Craft's Meow, Want2Scrap, and Spellbinder Paper Arts, where I have my own licensed die designs. I have also been honored to have my work published in several leading craft magazines. I am drawn to the soft, feminine and vintage style, but with simplicity in mind. I call my style “simple shabby". I regularly share my artwork and news about my designs and Croatian life on my blog, Crafting in Croatia.

A Word about SRM: I was introduced to SRM Stickers in 2010 when I applied for their DT position and was surprised to have been selected. It has been a wonderful few years getting to play with the BEST stickers in the industry. I especially love the Fancy Sticker Sentiment collection, the We've Got Your Sticker collection (especially the sentiments in white) and the new We've Got Your Border collections (I can't get enough of those cute banners and sentiments). As a busy mom of 3, I do not usually spend more than 30 minutes on a card. And the SRM stickers sure help me make something fast without sacrificing quality.

I am so thankful that I have made such wonderful friendships through my work with SRM. Knowing the wonderful people behind this amazing company makes SRM products even more special to and loved by me. I want to thank the SRM family (Susan, John, Laura, Jenyfur, and the many others behind the scenes) for making my world more colorful, one sticker at a time. :)










WOW. What an amazing collection of cards. Thank you, Nina!
