Last year I moved to Germany and I teach at a Montessori School while completing my Masters of Education degree. I am originally from Canada and love being on DT Teams!

Monica Taylor

I have been a crafter all my life and got into scrapbooking when my son was born 18 years ago. I am eclectic and will try almost anything once. I live in Phoenix, AZ with my husband and 17 year old son. I am a technical consultant (which pays the bills) and I work from home when I am not traveling to client shops. While my job is not creative in the least, I am a very creative person and love where my art takes me. I am inspired by Tim Holtz and tend to favor the shabby chic, vintage grunge type of projects.

Martha Lucia Gomez

 Hi, I'm Martha Lucia G√≥mez, I am from Colombia, but now I live in Miami, USA. My first language is Spanish, which is why when you visit my blog, you will see it is written in Spanish; but don't worry, I have a translate button. I studied Social Communications and Journalism, but I've loved crafts ever since i was a kid. Once upon a time, I used to work with metal jewelry, but one day i discovered stamps, ink and paper, and I was hooked; now it is my passion. I continue working in my profession, but at the same time I work on my blog and in various Design Teams; I can definitely conclude that working with paper crafts is the best therapy.

I live with my husband and our two daughters and I divide my time between my family, my work in a Public Relations Company and my passion: stamping and crafting. I love to create cards, 3D´s and alter different projects. I am looking forward to working on this Design Team and sharing my passion with all of you. See you soon!

Kim Rippere

I grew up thinking that everyone worked with fabric, thread, and yarn and created the most beautiful things from nothing!

My grandmother had perfect stitches that are not to be believed. She sewed all her own clothes (including formals!) until she graduated college. While growing up she was always needle pointing something, including Christmas stockings for all her children and grandchildren.

My mother has the decorating bug and has created award winning girl’s dresses! She has her hand in so many artistic pots that it is impossible to keep track of them!

My sister makes new Christmas stockings each year for her family as she cannot seem to find ones she actually likes! One of her first sewing attempts was a Vogue pattern. My mother and I were horrified…but, the piece came out beautifully. She is also a crocheter and struggles with keeping her creating interests confined to a few areas.

I am no seamstress! I started quilting in the mid 90′s and loved it. For a number of reasons, I stopped quilting when I moved to Atlanta. I have always loved fabric and the movement within the design of fabric. While I *adore* fabric…I just don’t have what it takes to make women’s clothes. I needed to start learning at my grandmother’s (and her friend who made suits!) knee when I was a grasshopper.

Right now, I am in love with paper crafting, making greeting cards, creating handmade books, quilling, and the list goes on. Additionally, I do some locker hooking. You will find that my interests change and evolve. I hope you choose to come with me while I explore, invent, and discover!

Cards Beyond Belief is a pay-it-forward project I started to send people greeting cards.

I have been an on and off home cook/chef for decades. I have done everything from sizzling rice soup, to mayonnaise, to falafels! I am no professional chef…but I can cook! This studio is just for my crafting and artistic side. If you want to know more about me you can visit my other blog.

My partner and I live in south Georgia with our dog and two cats.

Sharon Smith

I am a stay at home mum who has recently moved to the US from the UK. I have a devoted hubby who is my rock, 2 gorgeous kids and a new puppy who is my shadow! I have been card making for many years and now I have a dedicated craft room plan to continue for many more!

Jennifer Loftfield


I'm an inky-fingered, caffeine-addicted, paper-lovin' mom and wife who loves anything to do with paper. I even sell some of my work so I can afford to buy more supplies...LOL

I started paper crafting about 6 years ago when I made my own wedding invitations and have never slowed down. Scrapbooking, card making, ornaments...next I'm trying pocket scrapbooking/Project Life. I love learning new techniques (and old ones!) and sharing my creations with others.

I'd say my style ranges from CAS to over-the-top layered shaker card goodness. It seems to depend on the mood I'm in and what the stamp is 'saying' to me that day. I love playing with colors and mixing patterns together just as much as I love just coloring an image and adding some sequins. My favorite projects of all time are still cards, but I also enjoy creating tags, gift bags, journaling cards and frame-able art.

Jenny Johnson


My name is Jenny Johnson. I am mainly a papercrafter, but definitely don't limit myself to cards and layouts. I have 4 younger kids, so I like to make things that I can use, and that are off the page! I've made centerpieces, home decor, wall art, cupcake holders, albums, and of course invitations just to name a few things.

Steph Ackerman

I'v been creating since I was a child. I enjoy working with a variety of products and creating an assortment of projects. I love working with stamps above all else and can be found creating cards with my wide variety of stamps. I love inking, painting and coloring my stamped images with Copic Markers. I teach a wide variety of classes in my home studio; have taught at several conventions and am looking for more opportunities to teach.
