DESIGN TEAM

 

Hi everyone 
My name is Amanda but I prefer Mandy. 
I was born in South Africa but call Australia my home. I live in Perth Western Australia with my husband and Devon Rex mad cat 🐱. I am a mixed media artist and card maker but also a full time optical dispenser. I have been crafting and creating my whole life and I have major rainbowitis and am an art supply junkie!
Hi all, My name is Tania and I live in Adelaide, Australia. I have been scrapbooking/crafting for almost thirteen years starting just after my daughter was born and have been hooked ever since. She is my never ending source of inspiration. I have to say I am addicted to all things craft and love to create anything from layouts to cards though my absolute favourite is for anything off the page.
I love to try new techniques and just love playing with new products. I don’t know that I have a particular style but I do love to incorporate mixed media into my work (love getting my hands messy) along with chipboard, blooms, and plenty of bling.

Hello crafty friends. I’m Donna. I was born in Western Australia, raised my children in rural Victoria, and am currently living in Japan with my husband and youngest son. It was quite a shock swapping a fairly self sufficient rural lifestyle for the bustle of Tokyo life, but I love it here too.
I’ve been crafting all my life - my favourite childhood Christmas presents were always crafty goodies. I’ve been cardmaking since 2014, when a friend encouraged me to do an online watercolour class with her. I’ve been working hard to squeeze crafty time into my busy life ever since! As well as cardmaking, I enjoy playing piano and oboe, Japanese (luckily!) and learning anything I can get my hands on!

My cards are Clean and Simple (CAS) but not overly so. I love flowers, and I struggle to make masculine cards! I regularly post my work on Instagram as donnadoll74 https://www.instagram.com/donnadoll74/ and I blog at donnaisplayingpaper.com. I’m so excited to be joining the Paper Rose design team again in 2021, and look forward to getting crafty with you!

I have taken advantage of the extra time home that 2020 'gifted' me to start my own YouTube channel, with cardmaking videos.

 
Hi everyone.
I’m Tanya, I live in Queensland on the sunny Gold Coast and I’m thrilled to be continuing on the Design Team for another year. 
I’m a card marker and scrapbooker who likes to keep it clean, well only because I’m not very good at getting my hands inky dirty.

Hello friends,
My name is Kristie and I live in Western Washington in the United States. I'm so excited to be joining the Paper Rose 2021 design team! I started making cards when I was pregnant with my first child and haven't stopped. I love sharing my cards with others and donate the majority of cards to local charities and to the residents at a nearby retirement home.
 
I love using pattern papers, especially 6x6 paper pads. I like to turn the entire paper pad into a set of cards before moving onto the next collection. It's always fun figuring out different ways to use up the last of the pattern paper scraps. I'm a bit obsessed with clean, straight lines, but I also like adding lots of layers to my cards.
I regularly share card tutorials on my YouTube channel, blog, and social media pages.

Hi - I’m Michelle Lupton and I live in Melbourne, Australia. I’ve been making cards for longer than I care to admit, but I started my cardmaking blog in 2011. I am a clean and simple cardmaker who sometimes makes more complicated and not so simple cards. I love using different techniques, especially emboss resist with watercolour markers, alcohol inks on yupo, ink blending, and adding shimmer and shine to almost everything!

Hi I am Rachel Finn from Little Finn. Little Finn believes that giving a card is like giving a warm hug with a fold in the middle. Rachel crafts everything in her Gippsland home studio, and she has been known to spread some sparkle around with a trademark sequin or two. Having studied a Bachelor of visual arts and diploma of education, there’s a little bit of teachery goodness as well as artistic flair in her uniquely crafted, handmade cards. At its beating heart, Little Finn has a passion for all things paper, stamps and inks that come together to put smiles on faces.

Hiya everyone! My name is Kelly and I live in the Moreton Bay shire just north of Brisbane, Queensland. I am so excited to be part of the Design Team again for Paper Rose this year!
