Please join me in welcoming three new members to our team, along with three returning members. Though the official start of the new Design Team term isn’t until March 1, we just couldn’t keep the news to ourselves any longer!
Leave a comment to welcome our new team. We are certain their creative use of the CutCardStock products will inspire you for the months to come.
Meet Amber, Design Team Coordinator:
Hi, I’m Amber Lawrence and so happy to share that I’ve been working with CutCardStock for over 3 years now! I live in the Flathead Valley of Montana with my husband of nearly 15 years. I’ve been papercrafting for almost 13 years and have quite a stash built up, if you can imagine! I love working with CutCardStock and the design team as it brings together all that I enjoy…. design, papercrafting and working with other talented crafters. When I’m not working with the blog and the rest of the CutCardStock Design Team, I am a freelance Graphic Designer and teach Graphic Design and Web Technology students at our local community college. Oh, and not to mention chase after my husband, two boys, our Goldendoodle Bella, and help tend to our 100+ fruit tree orchard! I enjoy clean and simple, textures and bright colors, but I’m never one to turn away from a chance to stretch my creativity. I looking forward to seeing all the fantastic work from the new Design Team!
Meet Jamie, Senior Designer:
Hi! I am Jamie Cripps, a 30-something mother of two! I live near Detroit, Michigan with my craft-supportive husband of almost 16 years! I was introduced to scrapbooking when my daughter was born 14 years ago, but it wasn’t until our first Disney vacation in 2006 that I became obsessed! I am currently designing for several companies, working as a contributing artist for Silhouette, and working part-time at my dream role of a Social Media Director and Design Team Lead for crafting companies! I have published in several print and online magazines and have done catalog work for companies too! I am so excited to be continuing on the CutCardStock design team and can’t wait to share my projects with you!
Hi there, I am Cristal but everyone calls me Pinky. I am thrilled to be here. I live in Tennessee by Nashville in the country with my hubs, 3 crazy boys, 20 chickens, 2 dogs, and a Cockatiel. I have been crafting about 7 years now (time flies!) and love every second of it. I believe that all crafting is art and EVERY single piece is beautiful because it all comes from the same place- LOVE. Pinky’s Blog: Much Ado About Nothing
Meet Lee Ann:
Hi! My name is Lee Ann Barrett and I live in St Louis, Missouri with my 21 year old son and a devoted Greyhound named Bella. I have been a crafter as long as I can remember, having done everything from cross stitch to quilting. Scrapbooking became my crafting addiction about 20 years ago. Then I was introduced to stamping a few years back, and cardmaking slowly started taking over my life! I love all styles of crafting, but most everything I do leans towards the classy and elegant style. Being a huge nature lover, I love creating with trees, flowers, leaves and other ‘natural’ images, especially dies. When I am not cutting paper or getting inky, I am a school nurse. I also enjoy travelling and photography. I am thrilled to be a part of the CutCardStock Design Team!
