Hello everyone! Nina here!
A big thank you to everyone who have answered our DT Call! We have 5 returning members from 2019 team and 4 new members for 2020!
Watch our introduction video below or on our YouTube Channel.
The members of our 2020 design team are:
Rebecca is our design team coordinator. She’s local in Phoenix Arizona and you’ve seen her with me in various videos on our channel. Rebecca’s been papercrafting since her oldest was born in 2005. What started with a scrapbooking addiction turned into a cardmaking obsession! When she’s not driving her kids to and from school and activities, she’s hanging out with her two gigantic dogs, going to the gym, playing with paper, reading fiction and watching Netflix original shows.
JJ is also a product designer for us since this year. She’s a science nerd by day, but she’s been designing since 2003 when she started a custom ribbon business with her sister. Her love for design eventually led her to papercrafting and she’s been hooked ever since. Her style leans clean and simple with dashes of rainbow colors and LOTS of die cutting. She’s originally from Hawaii and currently live in Virginia just outside of Washington, DC. When she’s not crafting or designing, she’s enjoying time with her husband, two sons and doggie cooper.
Below is a card JJ made for our October release using her own Go Girl Winter Die that will be available on October 5th.
Alix lives in Sacramento, Sunny California. She has a 13 years old daughter, a supportive loving husband and two furry kitties. She’s a full time dental hygienist and an Etsy shop owner. She started her crafting journey back in 2013 with scrapbooking and it turned into mainly cardmaking in 2016. She loves coloring and making arts on an A2 sized card. She also loves to share her ideas and works with everyone.

Channin lives in sunny Arizona with her husband and their two daughters. She’s a long time stamper and papercrafter. She actually started back in junior high by carving her own stamps from erasers to create handmade cards and scrapbook pages. Her current crafty obsession is cardmaking!! Channin loves clean and simple designs, coloring critters and flowers, and even constructing interactive cards! But overall she loves trying to come up with designs that are unique or unexpected!

Keeway is a papercrafting addict from sunny California! She enjoys coloring, doodling, stamping and paper crafting during her free time and loves being a part of the card making community. She started her card making blog Kiwi Koncepts in 2015 as a way to document her crafting journey as she continues to learn and share what she makes. What started as just a place to relax and enjoy in some down time, soon became a reignited passion for arts and crafts. She also enjoys walks with her dog, watching movies and tv shows, exploring new restaurants, and trips to Disneyland!
Elyse is a cardmaker and paper crafter whose passion is showing others the joy of crafting. You can find her online as Elyse Hope Designs. When she isn’t making a card, you can find her doing volunteer work, spending time at home, or cheering on the TCU Horned Frogs. She lives in Fort Worth, Texas with her husband, and their 5 year old Wheaten Terrier, Charlie.

Originally from Ukrain, Galina has been living in Poland for the last two years. She has a cat - Sir Oliver, scottish fold, as her main helper in the craft room :) Most of all she loves making cards, tags and gift boxes. She’s obsessed with coloring and coloring mediums. From time to time, she would go back to her mixed-media past and make some super colorful canvases or layered cards :) Her first international position as a guest designer was with us, Waffle Flower, back in 2016.
Below is Galina's favorite card using our Little Mermaids Stamp Set:
Mindy lives in Wisconsin with her supportive hubby, amazing two children and an energetic dog. She’s always had a passion for arts and crafts. Her daughter was born in 2006 and shares her love for crafting. It makes great bonding time for them. Her son was born in 2010 and they learned a year after that he is autistic. She started dabbling back into cardmaking in 2016 and hooked ever since. She adores her copic markers but she loves experimenting with other mediums. She tends to have a bold style to her cardmaking. If Mindy is not making cards, you’ll find her watching her all time favorite show Supernatural.
