Hi, my name is Amy and my blog is called Scrapping Mommy. I am very excited to be a part of The Craft's Meow design team. I live in a little town in central Utah with my loving husband of 14 years and our three adorable kiddos. I have been paper crafting for about 10 years, but I have been crafting in one way or another my whole life.....thanks to my grandmother who I spent much of my childhood with. She was a very talented crafter who taught me many things about style and details......something that I hope to be able to pass on to my own children. My style is generally clean and well balanced, but I like to go wherever inspiration leads me. Because I am a mom to little ones, you can often find me up crafting into the wee hours of the morning. I also have a passion for photography, gardening, reading, cooking and baking, and you can usually find me hiking and fishing up in the beautiful Utah mountains during the summer months.
I am thrilled to join TCM's design team! I've been making cards for about five years and write a tongue-in-cheek blog, The Society of Stampaholics (SOS) when I'm not hanging out with Spouse and my daughter Gigi. I teach local and online card classes in an attempt to subsidize a chronic case of supply-related “I Wants.” Past paper-related thrills include co-owning and editing Lily Pad Cards, and being published in Cards, Paper Trends, Stamper’s Sampler, Somerset Studio, Take Ten, and Paper Crafts Magazine.
My name is Gayatri Murali. I live in Australia with my husband, two children heading into their teens, and a one-year-old cocker spaniel named Charlie. I am a therapist by profession working with children with Autism. I started out as a scrapbooker six years ago, but now I've turned into a full time cardmaker. My style is stamps, inks and cardstock, clean and simple. I also love bright colors and modern graphic design. I enjoy the process of designing. I find crafting very therapeutic. A lot of my free time is spent at my craft desk either planning or designing. I am super thrilled to design for The Craft's Meow and also be working with an amazing team!
Hi! My name is Jessica Fick (‘jessjean’ on SCS) and I'm thrilled to be part of The Craft's Meow design team! My husband Brad and I live in Madison, WI with our two amazing kids, Isaiah & Ashley. I was introduced to the paper crafting industry with the birth of my son 14 years ago. I began scrapbooking all the hundreds of photos I took of him (don’t we always take a TON of photos of our first born!?) and discovered a hobby! I began card making by sending cards to friends and family with photos of Isaiah to keep them up to date with his growth, and as fast as he grew, I grew in my love for paper crafts! I soon started adding stamps to crafting and haven’t looked back since! During the day, I teach early childhood in a small Christian school and am thrilled to be headed back to the classroom full time this fall teaching Kindergarten and 1st grade! In my free time, I enjoy creating cards, scrapbooks, and card kits with my favorite crafting supplies.
My family and I live in a small suburb of Kansas City, just over an hour and a half north of where I grew up. I am a former, kindergarten teacher turned adoring wife to BJ and stay-at-home, homeschool mom to a smart, spunky, nine-year-old Ezekiel and a vocal, tenacious, four-year-old Adina. When I’m not taking care of or playing with my family, you can find me cooking, baking, gardening, camping, sewing, taking pictures, and of course, paper crafting. My love for the latter started, over eleven years ago, at a Stampin’ Up workshop; but I have been creating with any and every form of crafting media, that I could get my hands on, since I was old enough to hold a crayon. I’ve been honored to have had a number of published works of art, as well as to get to design for some of my most favorite manufacturers, and cannot even begin to explain how excited I am to have the opportunity to design with The Craft’s Meow team. I hope that I can inspire you all to get creating.
I 've been married to my best friend Adam for almost 8 years, and we have two handsome boys, Beckett (6 years old) and Greyson (7 months)! We live on our family farm, and I enjoy EVERY aspect of living a rural life. I'm a Certified Surgical Technician, but I'm very blessed to be a stay-at-home mom. I enjoy crafting in every way, baking/cooking, gardening, singing, nature and taking photos. I've been a creative soul from birth and really got my start in 4-H (making it to the State Fair was a goal each year - which I did)! I LOVE to stamp and have been doing so for the last 3 years. I LOVE all of the inspiration and the creative people I've found/met online and through other events! I also LOVE to try new techniques and experiment with my supplies! I've made my dream of becoming a published artist a reality and will have my first works in CARDS Magazine Nov/Dec issue, with more to follow after that! I have a blog, Larissa Heskett Designs, and I've guest designed and designed for several of my favorite manufactures. I look forward to inspiring you with the AMAZING TMC products!! I cannot even begin to explain how HONORED and EXCITED I am to have the opportunity to design with The Craft’s Meow design team.
Hi! I'm Lin and I live in Canton, Ohio with my husband of 41 years. We have been blessed with 2 sons and 3 grandchildren. A former quilter, I was introduced to stamping in 2005, and now I love making cards, playing with paper just like I did with my fabrics. I love flowers and hearts, paper-piecing, fussy-cutting, and just playing with color. I started my blog devoted to card making in 2009 and the years have flown by since; almost every day you'll find me in my craft room working on a card. A huge part of my love of this craft is the friends I've made on- and off-line; card makers are wonderful people! I've been a big fan of The Craft's Meow stamps, and I'm thrilled to be a part of this amazing team! I'm looking forward to working with my fellow team members to inspire you.
Hi everyone! My name is Sharri Seffens and I am thrilled to be a part of The Crafts Meow Team! Thank you Lisa! I live in Stoughton, Wisconsin and work full time as an IT Project Manager. I am married to a wonderful man who is also my best friend. We have two 2 beautiful daughters ages 26 and 10. Ashley will be blessing us with our first grandchild in the spring, 2013! I started paper crafting shortly after the birth of Abbi and fell in love instantly. I love all styles and let my mood decide which one I go with for each card I make. I love this hobby and am grateful to be a part of this amazing community of crafters, the people I have met, and the friends I have made. I am really looking forward to inspiring everyone with TCM stamps!
