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! My style is pretty eclectic; I love to use bright colours for the most part, my favourite technique is ink smooshing, and I enjoy getting a bit messy sometimes.

I have been paper crafting for over 25 years, it’s my passion! I’ve taught scrapbooking and cardmaking classes in the past and my first job was actually working in a paper crafting store where I got to help design projects to be displayed in their store!! I enjoy sharing my cardmaking journey on Instagram and Facebook. My goal is to design for crafty companies that I love. I like the idea of inspiring others, showing how-to’s or tutorials, and working with a team of crafty people! Personally I’m a stay at home mom with 2 elementary aged kids! Besides my family, paper crafting is my highest priority!! If I’m not card making, I’m thinking about it!!

Hi everyone! My name is Asia, but I craft as Lemon Creation. I am Polish by heart and origin, but currently I live in France with my husband, two gorgeous children and one crazy, totally black cat. We live surrounded by mountains and the nature gives me so much inspiration and calms me when days are hard. Like art- creating soothes me! 

I love art journaling and small art forms - mostly ATC, but sometimes I create cards; scrapbooking layouts and mixed media projects; Learning and experimenting is very important to me. I love grungy, industrial style, or clean and simple design with a lot of negative space and beautiful balance between white and colour.  Even though in my everyday life I love to laugh, on the paper black colour is almost always a must!

Hello, Hello! My name is Brande Davison. I live in beautiful (albeit a little too rainy) Vancouver, BC Canada with my hubby Lance and our wee Jack Russell named Bella Bean Pup Pup. I started scrapbooking when I was 19 at a Creative Memories party my amazing step-mom hosted and I haven’t looked back. Fast forward 20+ years and I still love every scrappy minute. I finally found ‘my style’ a few years back that includes loads of stamping, lots of layers and a touch of grunge and mess.

I am so blessed to have a life that allows me to scrapbook, even a little, every day.... and a huge, fun family that provides lots of stories and photos to play with. You can find me mostly on Instagram or Facebook @brandedavison.

I am so excited to create for Paper Rose! The amazing goodies from this talented team have been making appearances in most of my scrapbook pages for years now - cannot wait to play even more!

YouTube: this is a goal for me this year that I am so excited about - hubby set up the filming lights, camera arm and everything, stay tuned! 

Well, hello there everyone! My name is Desiree Kuemmerle and I live in Lansdale, PA with the hubs of over 20 years and our furry bot Max! I am fluent in Crafting, a Master Paper Manipulator and a violator of all that makes sense... I get my curiosity from my cat!

Since about the time I spoke my first word, I’ve been an avid crafter alongside my mom and sister. You name the craft and I’ve probably bought it, collected it, tried it and finally stored it. Right now, getting Inky, suffering paper cuts, cutting with metal dies and stamping everything, whether it moves or not makes me smile and I must pass that along to everyone I know and don’t know!

These are the fun and mischievous ways I get to teach and inspire others to get into their crafty spaces to create their art!

I am an avid paper crafter and love to create beautiful projects whenever I can. Being creative and using a variety of techniques/media to create fun and unique projects brings me joy and I love to share that with others.

When you have a real devotion to card making, every day is another opportunity for research as you look at the world around you, how colours and patterns fit together, sentiments that bring a tear to a person’s eye and just what a difference a beautiful card can make to people of all ages.

Papercraft has allowed me to be brave and bold, to put my work out to the world through social media and embrace others' thoughts on my work. Helping others achieve their paper crafting goals is one of my  favourite things to do in this industry.

Hey.. I’m Kasia and I live with my two hooman kiddos and two fur babies in Adelaide.

 Being creative has been a huge part of my life since I could hold a pencil. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Multimedia, Photography & Graphic Design. I love the feel of paper in my hands, Copics, stamps, paint and getting messy in general.

 I taught all the messy & colourful card classes at my local scrapbook store and now work full time for Paper Rose as a Graphic Designer. I absolutely LOVE being able to design the products I can later create with.

 I hang out on instagram a little https://www.instagram.com/kasialeach/ but you can see most of my work on the Paper Rose new release email each Monday 

Hi I’m Miriam but everyone calls me Miri
I am originally from Windsor, England but now live on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria with my husband, two teenagers and my two labradors, Lola and Daisy. 
I am super excited to join the Paper Rose Studio design team for 2022.
I have been a card maker since 2017 after a severe back injury found me unable to move for months, so I began binge watching card making videos on you tube. The more I watched, the more hooked I became! 
I love clean and simple designs, white space and happy colours. Masking is my favourite technique. 
Away from card making I love being with my family, travelling, reading and cooking.
