Hi, I’m Amber Lawrence and so happy to share that I’ve been working with CutCardStock for over 6 years now! I live in the Flathead Valley of Montana with my husband of over 17 years.  We have two sons and a Goldendoodle, Bella. I’ve been papercrafting for over 15 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.  In my “real life”, I am a freelance Graphic Designer and teach Graphic Design and Web Technology students at our local community college.   I looking forward to seeing all the fantastic work from the new Design Team!

Hi, I’m Annie Williams and I live in Pennsylvania with my husband of 10 years, a little boy we recently welcomed into our lives, and two cats.  I am a scientist by training, but I have always been interested in art and art history as well.  Although I have been crafting for most of my life, I only just started my blog a few years ago and have enjoyed sharing a mix of home decor, handmade card, and gift ideas ever since. I’d characterize my style as simple and traditional, but I love to experiment with new types of media and various coloring techniques. My projects often reflect my other interests which include outdoorsy things like hiking, biking, and canoeing as well as a love of travel, small towns, and nature photography.  I am thrilled to be a part of the CutCardStock Design Team again and can’t wait to see what all of these talented ladies come up with this year!  Annie’s Blog: Lab Hands

My name is Lisa McGushion. I live in Northwest Indiana with my husband of 27 years and our daughter. I have been doing crafts of one sort or another as long as I can remember. I began scrapbooking over 24 years ago when our daughter was born. I retired after 28 years of teaching to pursue my passion for paper crafting. I have been designing and teaching classes at our local scrapbook store, Cafe Crop for the past 3 years. When I’m not playing with ink, paint and paper, I might be sewing, quilting, or working on my daughter’s wedding. I am excited to be part of the CutCardStock Design Team.

My name is Kelli but most people call me kel. I am located in beautiful Kaneohe, Hawaii. I am a 30-something, happily married mama of 3 boys and a non-traditional college student, working with my local community college’s Upward Bound program while working towards my Master’s degree in History (US Social History, if you’re actually interested!) and aspiring to be a polyglot!!  I started scrapbooking in 2003 when pregnant with my oldest son, turned into a collector, and then started seriously creating again in 2013 because my stash grew out of control! Who am I kidding… it’s still outta control!! haha! I like to think of my style as clean and simple… I gravitate towards clean lines and minimal embellishments when I craft. I LOVE patterned paper and cardstock though!!  Cardmaking is my new favorite papercraft, although scrapbooking is something I desperately need to catch up on.  In addition to papercrafting, I spend whatever free time I have in my veggie garden, reading, cooking, baking, and updating my planner and BuJo!! Kelli’s blog: Scraps & photoGRAFFS

Hi, y’all! I’m Niki and I live in San Antonio, TX with my husband, two kiddos and a plethora of pets. I’ve been making pretty things as long as I can remember… as a child, I used to spend my money at the tiny craft store next to my grandmother’s house in outport Newfoundland, Canada. I graduated from pompoms and popsicle sticks to a love of all things paper. I started with scrapbooking, but that quickly morphed into quilling, and then to handmade greeting cards. My crafting style is clean and simple, not a lot of fussy details, just minimal and impactful designs with a feminine twist. I like clean lines, bold shapes, floral designs, and pops of color. When I’m not crafting, you can find me relaxing in the backyard, searching online for craft inspiration, or taking an interesting online course. I am so glad to be a part of the CutCardstock Design Team this year and I look forward to sharing projects, ideas and inspiration with you!  Niki’s blog: Cardstoq

Haley is obsessed with color and has been working in the design industry for nearly 10 years. You can see what she’s up to now at Pigmentology where she designs hand-lettered products and mixed media art for Etsy (@pigmentologyshop) and makes process videos on YouTube and Instagram (@pigmentology).

I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 25 years and have 2 beautiful children. I started Scrapbooking our family trips in 2000…and I have never looked back. My local Scrapbooking store haunted me to next try card making…and I finally gave in…this is my joy! A fast project beginning to end and useful to send to family and friends. The same person forced me to start a blog…and I fell in love. I truly enjoy creating and posting those creations to share with the world. I have been published twice and served on many wonderful design teams. I am truly thankful to have been chosen to design for CutCardStock. I can’t wait to get started using their fabulous products.  Lee-Ann’s blog: Snappy Scraps

My name is Trisha Neal, and I live in a lovely rural area south of Kansas City.  Married to my high school sweetheart for 28 years, we have four children, with two still living at home.  We homeschooled all four children all the way through high school, and now that the “baby” has graduated, I have more time to explore various art projects.  When not elbow deep in my latest creative mess, you might find me helping out at our family run business of 30 years, The Baseball Card Store, or babysitting our first grandchild, who joined the family in January.  I love paper, paints, crayons–all things art–and look forward to many great makes with CutCardStock.  Trisha’s blog: Easily Amused Hard to Offend
