 Hi, I’m Martha Lucia Gómez, I am from Colombia, but now I live in Miami, USA. My first language is Spanish, which is why when you visit my blog, you will see it is written in Spanish, but don’t worry, I have a translate button. I studied Social Communications and Journalism, but I’ve loved crafts ever since I was a kid. Once upon a time, I used to work with metal jewelry, but one day I discovered stamps, ink, paper and die cuts, and I was hooked; now it is my passion. I continue working in my profession, but at the same time I work on my blog and in various Design Teams; I can definitely conclude that working with paper crafts is the best therapy.

I live with my husband and our two daughters and I divide my time between my family, my work in a Public Relations Company and my passion: stamping and crafting. I love to create cards, 3D´s and alter different projects. I am looking forward to working on this Design Team and sharing my passion with all of you.

You can find me every time in, your home.

I am Debra Davison from Virginia Beach, Virginia and have been getting creative ever since I saw my first sticker as a child. I’m an RN and have worked at Sentara Leigh Hospital in Norfolk, VA for 30 years, most of which I spent in the ICU. I have a less stressful job now, which gives me more time for creativity. My first love is Rubber Stamping and my style is somewhere between quirky and shabby chic. I love to mix patterns of paper and use different elements such as washi tape, doilies, glitter, and embossing paste. My guy and I have been dating 16 years and we love to listen to local music ( he plays the guitar and is a great singer/songwriter ), hang out at coffee shops and spend time together watching movies. I’ve also been a part of the Susan K Weckesser Design Team.

Hey there, my name is Jessie and I currently live in the amazing city of Louisville, Ky. I started stamping back in 2001, and have been hooked ever since. What started as a way to spend time with my friends and make Christmas cards, has now become a full-time hobby! I have met some of my best friends through this wonderful stamping life.

My name is LeeAnn McKinney,  I am 50 years old, with a wonderful husband that supports my fun. He is always there to encourage me and always wants to see my work as soon as it is finished, I do believe he is my biggest fan.
I have a wonderful family of daughters, son in laws and grandchildren who are the inspiration for many of my layouts, and card projects.
While I am a clean and simple type papercrafter, I am exploring more of the options out there. I love designing and bringing inspiration to the teams followers, so they too can see what is possible.


My name is Lisa Ambrose. I am married, a mother of four and a grandmother to six. I live in Baltimore, MD. and have been crafting for as long as I can remember. I am a true crafting addict. I can be found most evenings and weekends in my craft toom. It’s hard for me to pick a favorite craft because I love anything that allows me to create, but if I had to choose one it would be coloring and turning those into cards. I love spending time with my family and friends and sharing my creations with them. I am super excited to embark on this adventure in crating. Happy crafting.
Hi I am Kelly. I’m a PNW librarian, crafter, pet mom and thrift store shopper who can fritter a day away like no one else. (Please do not utter the word that starts with “P” and ended with “interest” in my presence!)
In addition to papercrafting, I make jewelry and dabble in digital scrapbooking. And since I’m a librarian, I’m a bid reader, which explains the thirty books sitting on my bedside table, waiting to be read!
My pets- four dogs- are my world. They live pampered lives and let me be a pack leader because I’m the one with the treats. I also have three beautiful blue-eyes, Siamese that have NO interest in hanging with the dogs!
What…. you are still reading? Go get yer tail a stampin!
