Here is our amazing design team!!
aka: Pammie - Team A & B
I love just living a few blocks from the gorgeous shores of
Lake Michigan, in the small town of Algoma, WI. I'm a
retired Paramedic and enjoy the free time. I've been
married to my best friend, Greg, for 50 yrs in 2022. I have
two adult daughters that are awesome young women,
and now a Gamma to LJ(Landon Joe), 7/2019. Stamping has been
a huge part of my life for 20 yrs or so. One hobby I've managed
to stick with. lol. Most important to me is the fact that
I am a child of God and saved by grace through Christ Jesus.
Life is a gift! Eternal life a BLESSING!
Bonnie Ratzloff - Team A
I've been married to my husband for 29+ years, and a mother of
2 children. I am also known as the "crazy cat lady" on our street.
My love of lighthouses began when my mom used to take my brother
and I to the beach by the Pacific Grove lighthouses and has continued
after she lost her battle to breast cancer. My love of stamping and
coloring is a release from the stresses of life, including my battle with
chronic migraines and chronic pain, but also a continuation of all my
mother taught me about painting, water coloring and crafting. I was
blessed to have a loving and talented mother growing up and I'm
blessed to have a talent that I can use to bless others with a
smile, a hug or just to say thanks.
Helen Nile - Team A
I've been a card maker for many years and love stamps, digi stamps,
pretty papers and my Promarkers. I love sharing my cards and learning
from other people. I work full time as an Activities Coordinator in a care
home so during the week you're likely to find me singing, dancing,
hosting quizzes, crafting and lots of other things!
Karen Finkle - Team B
My name is Karen Finkle and I'm an independent demonstrator
for Stampin'Up!. I retired to FL in 2000 after living in the Adirondacks
(New York state) all my life. I was introduced to stamping in 2012 but
the bug didn't bite me until we had to stop RVing in 2015. My daughter and
son-in-love recently moved to eastern TN and I hope to move there
next year(2023). I have two adult grandchildren, one lives in
Manhattan (the actor) and the other in the Adirondacks (the artist).
My husband and son were avid supporters of my passion and I know
they would both be proud of my growth as a stamper over the past few years.
My son's cat, Chester, is now my support and is as much a part of
me as is pattern paper, cardstock, ink and everything else that
goes along with cardmaking. I have made an appearance as a
guest designer on several challenge sites over the years and now
I am a part of the design team at Pammie's Inky Pinkies. It
is quite an honor and I look forward to a new adventure in stamping!
Let's get inky, shall we?!
Pam Sebring - Team A
My name is Pam. I am from a small rural farming community
in southwestern Iowa, where I was born and raised. I have
been married to my high school sweetheart for 45 years (2023)
and have two children and six beautiful grandkids.💓
I am a cosmetologist, so Craftyhairlady became my blog name.
I have always been interest in crafts of all kinds, but when my
youngest sister introduced me to greeting cards a few years
ago and I was instantly hooked!! I am excited to get started
with PIP Challenges and honored to be part of the DT!
Renata Simon - Team B
I am Renata and I live in a small quiet town in the Netherlands,
sharing my home with a 3 years old fur baby named Lola. 😸
I started cardmaking several years ago after my mom took me with
her to a crafting expo and I fell in love with it at the first
cut of the paper. Though, when I moved countries, I did have a
very long "break" from it and only just started again this year.
So, I'm practically still a newbie, eager to try everything and
learn as much as I can! Looking forward to all the interactions
and seeing all the beautiful creations from everyone!
Terri Winske- Hermsen - Team A
A little about me:
I was fortunate enough to have 2 grandmothers who taught me to crochet
and embroider when I was a little girl, and my Mom sewed our Barbie doll
clothes. I've been around "crafts" pretty much all my life and love paper
crafts the most. I've been making cards for about 15 years and truly enjoy
the friendships I've made and the fun I've had doing so. I look forward
to learning new techniques and sharing them with anyone who
will listen! I'm looking forward to working with all of you!
Tracie Clary - Team B
I have been paper crafting for about 10 years and I love all the wonderful
people I have met in those 10 years. I have always loved different crafts such
a quilting, painting, knitting, crocheting, etc. I think I have tried it all. I am
so lucky to be able to share my love of this art with wonderful family and
friends. To me, friendship is what this hobby means to me. Paper crafters
are always such happy people. I love being part of this hobby.
Vickie Yeakley - Team B
My name is Vickie Yeakley. I live in a small town in Indiana. I'm married
and together my husband and I have 4 grown, out on their own children!
Our children have blessed us with 9 grandchildren! I am retired from the
public school sector, having worked as a grant administrator for a
cooperative of eleven school corporations. I'm a very eclectic crafter! I
love paper crafting using all types of styles and techniques from whimsical
to shabby chic to anything but a card to altered art and creating with all
types of media. My crafting goal is to learn from other with the end result,
hopefully, providing inspiration to other crafters with the cards and
projects that I create. Paper crafting for me is a FUN, creative outlet
and I enjoy spreading the FUN!!
