Blog Design Team

Teri Wils

A creative soul who has been crafty my entire life. I love to play with paper and try new techniques, and I’m a Certified Altenew Educator, DT member for CutCardStock, and The Funkie Junkie Boutique. I guest design for Altenew as well as teach classes at local shops. Married to my best friend for over 35 years, we raised two sons and now have fun with two little grandsons.

Leslie Turner

My name is Leslie. My hubby and I have four grown children, two grandsons, and three granddaughters scattered around the US. We live in beautiful Colorado. I began scrapbooking about 45 years ago – so long ago that all the fun papers and embellishments we use today hadn’t even been thought of. I’m a crafting junkie and really enjoy creating all things paper – handmade cards, 3-D projects, mini albums, gift bags, and paper shoes. Come visit me at my blog, Love To Scrap 2! Looking forward to creating with the CutCardStock design team!

Janet Trieschman

Hi, I am Janet. I am married to my husband Dan, and we have two teenaged girls. Nowadays, I work from home. I have always loved to create. One of my favorite things to do was talk my mom into a trip to the craft store as a child.

After 3 years of studying aeronautics, I took my love of art and craft and studied Graphic Design in college. Then I pursued an MFA in Graphic Design and an MS in New Media. I left a prosperous career as a college professor to raise our girls. Looking for a creative outlet, I started a website; Try it – Like it – Create it.

Judy VanZandt

Hi my name is Judy V.  Originally a Louisiana native, I live near Denver, Colorado, where my husband and I have raised our son and daughter.

I have enjoyed crafting since I was a teenager and have done anything from sewing, crewel embroidery, silk flower arranging and jewelry making, to name a few, but paper crafting is truly my passion. I love taking paper and embellishments and turning blank backgrounds into something unique.

I currently serve on several design teams and thoroughly enjoy working with and being inspired by other crafters from all around the world. You can follow me on my blog – Created Just 4 U (https://jvzcreations.blogspot.com) 

Raechelle Bellus

Hi y’all! I’m Raechelle and I’m thrilled to be a member of the CutCardStock Design Team! I’ve been scrapbooking for close to 19 years and I’ve dabbled in all areas from off the page projects, cards, mixed media, and more, but my go-to is creating 12×12 layouts. My husband and I live in a very small town in South Central Kentucky with our dog and two cats. We have a six adult children, along with six grand babies and wonderful sons-in-laws. We are a proud military family. In addition to creating with paper, I enjoy reading, listening to true crime pod casts, and working on our land.

Janet Axtman

Hello, my clever, crafty friends! I’m Janet Axtman, aka SugarShine Designs. I am a North Dakota native who now resides in North Carolina. By day I’m a busy professional, wife, and mother trying to live a life in Faith. By night (usually between 9 to midnight), I am a paper designer extraordinaire! My passion is to teach and inspire just as I’ve been and continue to be inspired by so many talented and beautiful creators. My style is whatever mood I’m in, but I am drawn to bright and energetic colors so often, my creations fall into the cute and happy category. I especially enjoy making cards and 3D home décor, but I’m always trying new things to expand my skills. I often take advantage of electronic cutting machines to do projects, but I also have a large collection of steel dies too. And I like to get my hands dirty. You’ll usually find me with stained fingers from inks and other mediums. With CutCardStock products, your creations are only bound by your imagination, and who doesn’t love that? I’m truly honored to be here with you to share what takes me to my happy place, and I hope I can pass a little of that on to you too!

Maureen Ruangchamneil

Hi! I’m Maureen (Mo) and I’m so excited to get to work with the CutCardStock team! I’ve done all sorts of crafts over the years, starting first with scrapbooks when my kids were little.

The fact that I get to make fun projects, and share them with others is a dream come true.  But if I’m not crafting, you’ll likely find me staying cool by the pool, sipping on coffee, or planning our next Disney vacation!  Looking forward to getting a little Mo’ crafty with you all!

Misty Foresman

Hey y’all! My name is Misty, and I am from a small town just North of Houston TX.  I have five kids and my husband has five kids, together we are the Brady Bunch on Steroids! I have been scrapbooking since I was 19, and crafting since I was too young to even remember.  I have been on several design teams, creating everything from scrapbook layouts to boutique hair bows, and everything in between. While I LOVE crafting of all sorts, my heart and passion is and will always be in my scrapbooks.  I have spent my life telling people to “capture those memories” and to take pictures of even the silliest things because, someday, those may be the only thing you have left to remember your loved ones. It wasn’t until the death of my oldest son that my own words hit HOME for me. When a picture is all you have, that picture becomes a treasure.  I not only treasure the photos of my son before he passed away, I also cherish the ones that I have and the ones I have not even taken yet of my other kids.  Life is happening all around us…and if we don’t capture it…we will someday forget.  I don’t want to forget.  I don’t want my kids to forget.  So, I scrapbook. My love for my family spills out into my layouts…and that is exactly how I want it. When I am gone, they will never question my love for them. By sharing the events of my life, I have successfully inspired many of my friends and family to scrapbook their treasured photos. I am super excited to be part of the Design Team and I hope to inspire you, too!

Jessica Vittek

Hello! I am Jessica and have been papercrafting for about 20 years. My aunt got me started in the hobby and we have been enjoying it together ever since.

Instagram Team

Aury Sanchez @thepixiedustorchid

Hello, my name is Aury and I am the hands and face behind The Pixie Dust Orchid. My passion for arts and crafts started many years ago. I remember as a child I will always ask my mom to buy me crayons, markers and templates. My passion grew significantly when I became a mother. I was tired of always buying the same party decorations that were sold at our local stores and decided to make my own decorations for my children’s parties. I started creating party decorations for my family and friends as a hobby. It was then when I realized that creating these beautiful pieces of art was my true passion. Crafting is truly my happy place. It brings peace and Joy to my soul. Every item in my shop is made with love. I am happy to be able to share my creations and be part of your special events.

Samantha Brijmohan @crafted_avec_amour

I’m a hobby crafter and stay-at-home mom who began paper crafting two years ago after creating paper flowers for my baby shower. With encouragement from my family, I tremendously improved my skills and turned this interest into an everyday hobby, creating colorful décor for my family members – tailored to all occasions. On Instagram, Crafted Avec Amour is mainly about sharing tutorials, inspiration, tips and diy-s as it relates specifically to crafting. Follow me on Instagram to stay up to date with my latest projects.

Aya El @ayaspapercrafts

Hello and welcome crafty friends. My name is Aya El.  Being a wife, a mother makes my life busy. However, finding an hour to craft is a must. Big thanks to my husband for supporting me. 

Sarah Remage-Healey @shrhdesigns

I always had an unofficial love for art and design. But after an unexpected medical situation, a switch from the corporate world of accounting to a more flexible path of my own tiny business seemed like the best silver lined path; and there it was, SHRH Designs was born. I absolutely love all the little details that most people don’t even think about. Because, why not?!? My work takes all those details and adds them into whatever product I’m working on, to create a beautiful and truly unique final product. It could be for your child’s class valentine gift, your parents’ anniversary, your baby’s first birthday, your wedding day, or that party you just absolutely need to throw!

Kelly Fusco @thesunshinecrafter

My name is Kelly Fusco of Kelly Fusco Designs. I have a 14 yearr old daughter and we live in northern Florida with our cats. I’ve been cardmaking since 2018 & I love it. Cardmaking is my therapy & my passion.
