Design Team

Here is our amazing design team!!

aka: Pammie - Team A & B
Challenge Coordinator
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 45 yrs in 2017. I have 
two adult daughters that are awesome young women, 
and now a Gamma to LJ, 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!

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.

Davi Reid - Team B
I live in the desert South West, Plenty of heat and sunshine!
I'm married to a great supporter of my habit. Have 2 daughters and 
SILs, 3 grandsons and 1 granddaughter. I work for a Optometrist 
and Ophthalmologist. My parents are incredibly talented and so
I have drawn and created from a young age. My friend got me 
interested in paper crafting and blogging.

Donna Walls - Team B
Here's a bit about me: I'm semi-retired...I sell online and work from home.
I spent several years in healthcare, mailny in Clinical Research and when
hubby retired, he talked me into it. I think he got tired of cooking supper
every night. 😊 We live in Central Florida, 40 miles north of
Orlando...17 miles from Daytona Beach. I grew up as a military brat and
lied many places in the US and Overseas. I spent the better part of myt 
teen years in Columbus, Georgia and met my husband there when he was
hubby is a retired Veteran and ex-law enforcement officer. He was part of
Jimmy Carters' personal security team while we lived in DC. I love to 
craft and have many hobbies but papercrafting is my passion.

Heather Bolli - Team A

My name is Heather and I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada with
my husband, a daughter and a son. We also have two tortured
(but mostly spoiled) cats. I've been pretty crafty all my life, but added
stamping and card making to my repertoire in 2008. I also enjoy
spending time on the computer, watching movie, reading and 
spending time outside. I especially enjoy sharing my craft room
with my daughter, who love to get crafty too.

Kren Kurts - Team A
I am Kren Kurts - wife, retired teacher, traveller, crafter. You may know me
in blog land as kren@afourthlife. I am a "flamingo", a native Floridian who
flies north for a portion of the year. I try to get "inky" whenever I can, and
love dies, beautiful images, and techniques for making my own background
papers. I am so happy to be a member of the PIP design team!

NanaConnie - Team A
I'm NanaConnie and I've been crafting since I was big enough to
hold crayons and scissors. (the photo is what I use for everything
blog and crafting related. It's actually an old family photo of
my mother and grandparents. I'm a carbon copy of my grandmother
and that could be me standing there) I'm a mom to grown sons and
daughters (2 of each), a Nana to 6 grandkids, and Great-Nana
to 2 great-grands. I'm a child of God, a Christian, and a patriot,
coming from a long line of military service on both sides of my
family, all the way back to the US Civil War. I've been blogging
since 2011 and my crafting sort of settled into mostly cardmaking
about that same time. Over my many years of living, I've done
sewing, scrapbooking, quilling, crochet, and miniatures, plus
a few others which just didn't become obsessions. 😀

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!!
