Waltzingmouse Stamps Design Team

I can't believe my luck – all of these fabulous ladies have agreed to be on my Design Team!! I hope that together, we can all have a load of fun doing what we like best and providing a stack of eye candy and inspiration for all you folks out there!!

So, in no particular order, well ok, let’s do it alphabetically!! lol

Hi everyone! I'm Julia Aston and I live in Massachusetts. I've been doing some kind of crafting since I was about 5 years old when my mother would set my sister and I up on the dining room table with papers, stickers and crayons! I've jumped from sewing, to quilling, to papermache and calligraphy - finally settling on stamping and scrapbooking where I've stuck for the past six or so years! I just love how I can create a beautiful card or craft with all the stamps, dies, and inks!! I was an elementary school teacher in the past - but I presently work full time as the administrative assistant in the Trauma Division at a Boston hospital. I have a grown son out living on his own and a wonderful husband who tolerates my stamping addiciton with very good humor! We also share our home with two sweet cats. Since I have to be at work all day - I'm usually up late at night stamping away in my craft room. When I'm not stamping you will find me hiking, kayaking or gardening. I can hardly believe my good fortune of being able to work on Claire's Waltzingmouse Design Team with all the other talented ladies!

   Jen Cuthbertson

Hi! I'm Jennifer Cuthbertson and I'm so thrilled to be part of the Waltzingmouse Stamps Design Team among such amazing crafters! I work full time as an information security policy manager by day and craft by night and weekend. I'm married to my best friend, Glen, we just purchased our first home about 20 minutes north of San Francisco where we live with out 17 year old cat, Yoda, and we have our first baby on the way in September! We are beyond excited for our little miracle! I've been crafting my whole life and even still have lots of primitive rubber stamps from the 1970's. I dove in head-first after attending a Stampin' Up! workshop in 2008 and the rest is history. I've been very blessed in my crafty pursuits and consider getting inky a wonderful way to spend an evening.

   Sandie Dunne

My name is Sandie Dunne and I live in the midlands of Ireland with my husband, 4 kiddos, 1 cat, 1 dog and an ever increasing population of fish. I left my Web Design job when my third child was born and have been a SAHM ever since. I happily spent 34yrs of my life without any inclination to craft but after meeting some very lovely American ladies, who are now close friends, I decided to give scrapbooking a try. I was a 'scrapper' for 2yrs before I made my first card {which was awful!!} - then I discovered stamps and fell in love. I have a paper obsession that I am not looking to cure and have been known to hot glue flowers to anything that stays still long enough. I used to run a monthly scrapbooking club but now I teach classes at crafting events around the country, which is a lot of fun - without all the admin work. When I'm not creating something I'm usually driving kiddos to school, Football, Hurling, Irish Dancing, etc, etc, etc.....  

My name is Jennifer Holmes and I live in Washington State with my husband and daughter. My daytime job is working in Behavioral Health as a Contracting/Marketing professional, but my nights and weekends are filled with paper, ink and stamps! As far back as I can remember I was always doing something artsy, thanks to an aunt who always gifted me with all sorts of arts and crafts kits. I began stamping nearly 20 years ago and I haven’t stopped since. Even thought I enjoy all types of crafting, I always come back to papercrafts and I’m still often amazed with what you can do with paper, ink and stamps!

 

Hi there, I’m Becca Feeken – a confessed craftaholic with a major weakness for die templates, stamps, paper engineering and all things crafty – along with a minor weakness in geeky things and gadgetry. Thank you Mom for putting me into Girl Scouts, making me participate in crafts and sitting me down at a sewing machine early in life; little did I know how much it would shape my life and evolve into such a passion! During my career years as a Network Engineer, I traveled quite a bit and only had time to be a collector of craft things and an observer. It was a perfect storm when I got my first stamp catalog in 1995. Although I do many crafts, paper crafting always seems to jump to the top of the list. It was during some hard times that I learned the sweetness of pouring my heart out into crafts and the therapy of creating beautiful things for others. I vowed to jump into the action and use every thing I own - I relish a day spent at my crafting table. I'm so grateful to be a part of the Waltzingmouse Stamps family. I’m a huge fan; the brilliance of design makes the Waltzingmouse products such a pleasure to work with. 

   Jeanne Jachna

Hi! I’m Jeanne Jachna. I’m a married, stay at home mom of two teenagers, and one very active Akita puppy. I live in Northwest Indiana near Chicago. I like to read, garden, and cook, but I have been completely captivated by card making. I can’t resist a new set of stamps, bling, big bows and colorful paper. I love to layer on lots of die cuts and mix different patterned papers together. I am obsessed with Waltzingmouse Stamps and love the Victorian influence in their designs. I have been impressed by the talented designers I’ve been introduced to through Waltzingmouse, and touched by their kindness. I'm delighted and honored to be a part of the Waltzingmouse Team.

   Teresa Kline 

 Hi, I am Teresa Kline. I am married to Gary, he is my number one fan; he is super supportive of my hobby and I am very grateful for that. We have a boxer named Lexi at present but have had several boxers over the years. We both work at a leading chocolate factory and enjoy time together especially weekend getaways on our Harley Davidson. I have been stamping/creating for about 9 years and have had the opportunity to be on many design teams and meet lots of fabulous ladies; another blessing! I have learned so much over the years and cannot image creating not being appart of my life. I enjoy most of all sending my cards to others to encourage and inspire them. I am honored to be apart of the Waltzinmgouse DT, it is a dream come true for me! I adore Claire and the fabulous designs she creates, I look forward to what is to come. I hope that you are inspired by creations and take time to create with WM stamps!

   Tosha Leyendekker 

 Hi! My name is Tosha Leyendekker, and I live in Central California with my Dairyman/Farmer husband and our two dogs. My two kids are grown and live out of state, so we are truly empty nesters. Thankfully I have my paper crafting to keep me busy. I’ve been stamping for at least 15 years (I’ve lost track.), but it didn’t become a major part of my life until I started participating in the Splitcoaststampers challenges in 2007. I've been going full steam ahead ever since. It's been a pure delight designing for Waltzingmouse Stamps. Not only is Claire a gem, but her images are always inspiring as is the wonderful WMS Design Team. I’m truly blessed to work with such kind and talented ladies from around the world.  

   Rene Lynch

Hi, my name's Renee Lynch and I live in the sunny South just outside of Nashville, TN. I'm a SAHM married to a very patient man named Patrick and we have 4 incredible kids...twin girls Hunter and Haley and two boys...Robert and Ryder...who keep me on my toes. I discovered papercrafting about 3 years ago and haven't looked back since. I love everything about this wonderful hobby and am so honored to be a member of this incredible team with some of the most amazing and creative designers anywhere!

    Jean Martin

Hi! My name is Jean Martin and I live in New York with my husband Ren and our 3 cats. During the day, I work as an Office Manager at our family-run Veterinary Hospital. At night you will find me with paper, stamps and ink in hand. (…if not the TV remote.) I tried my hand at Scrapbooking in 2009 but did not keep at it for long. In 2010, I discovered card making and blogging. I fell in love with the craft as well as the wonderful people in blogland. I haven’t looked back since and have been very fortunate to be a part of a few amazing design teams. I could hardly believe my luck when I was invited to be a part of Waltzingmouse Stamps! It’s not every day that you get to work with one of your favorite stamp companies. I am very honored to be here.

Hi! My name is Lynn Mercurio and I live in the St. Louis area with my husband and our 4-legged fur-baby, Allie - a Golden Retriever. I work full-time as an executive assistant but would much rather be at home in my craft space, happily working on a project or two. On any given week night, or during the weekend, you will find me working on something craft related.

It was inevitable that I would find a creative outlet. I was surrounded by creativity since birth. My mom was a creative soul, dabbling in the arts in one form or another for as long as I can remember. I began scrapbooking in 1997 but wasn't a serious crafter until 2005 when a co-worker introduced me to stamping. From that moment on, I was hooked and knew that I had found my passion in paper crafting. Whether making cards or documenting memories through scrapbooking, there just is no comparison to the joy of creating.

    Edna Morrisedie

I live in Brisbane, Queensland, on the East Coast of Australia and have been a card maker since my very early years, reigniting all things stamps and paper a couple of decades ago... it's all about the stamps for me which is one of the many reasons I love Waltzingmouse Stamps, such a fine balance of detail and application in their design! You will primarily see me stay true to my card making roots, often indulging in fine cut work and building up backgrounds with many of the accompanying stamps across the range. I like variety so often swap between many styles of cards, from soft and flowing to those with a masculine edge; with the only real common denominator being that wonderful thing called a STAMP!!!

   Iwona Palamountain

Hello, my name is Iwona Palamountain, but I also go by my nickname Chupa. I live in Melbourne, Australia but I'm a born & bred Pole. I've got a loving husband, a beautiful 3yo daughter and I'm expecting another one in April! I've been paper crafting actively since pregnant with my first girl and although my hobby keeps me on my toes, I never looked back since. I'm thrilled to join the WMS Design Team and I hope to bring you some inspiration along the way

   Kelly Schirmer

I live in Avon, New York, a small town just south of Rochester. My husband Jason and I have been married since 2001, and we have 2 beautiful daughters, Eva and Claire. The girls would not want me to leave out our black Labrador Retriever named Olive! I am a Speech-Language Pathologist, and I work with children ages birth to five years old in their homes. I have been stamping since 2002, but really got interested in the hobby in 2007 after joining Splitcoaststampers. It is such a pleasure to be a part of the Waltzingmouse Stamps Design Team! I fell in love with Claire’s images right from the start and still smile whenever I stamp a card with them. It has been a special blessing in my life getting to know her, the lovely design team members, and her sweet customers from all around the world!

Hi! My name is Laurie Schmidlin and I live in Southwest Montana with my husband and four children (and a myriad of pets)! I've been stamping for 17 years now, and I couldn't imagine my life without this fun and fulfilling hobby! I have been a huge fan of Waltzingmouse ever since I ordered my first set (Oven Fresh Gingerbread Joy) several years ago! I am so honored to be a part of this team, and can't wait to see all of the goodies Claire has in store for us!

I live in Pittsburgh, PA with my husband and two dogs. I spend my days working as the Natural Resources Permitting Coordinator for a utility company, but spend my evenings in my studio getting crafty. I love to create my own stamped patterns and backgrounds and can't get enough of fussy cutting. When my mojo needs a little nudge, I like to browse magazines and play along with different challenges. When I'm not crafting, I love to bake and spend time outdoors birding or hiking with my husband. We are certified scuba divers and jump on any opportunity we have to dive. Waltzingmouse Stamps have been near and dear to my heart since Claire started, and I have more favorites than I can list. I am grateful to be a part of the Design Team and work alongside Claire and the other amazing ladies!
