I’m Amanda of Pear Blossom Press. I’ve been a cardmaker for over 25 years. I enjoy creating my own backgrounds and creating cards with lots of layers. My favorite cards are interactive though!

I started cardmaking in 2006, at a Stampin’ Up! Party and have never looked back. I started my blog, MASKerade in 2012 and my YouTube channel in 2018.

I live in Toronto, Canada and I love clean, graphic design with bold colours and lots of white space. My favourite cards are the ones where supplies are used in unexpected ways to create something completely different than originally intended!

Hello crafty friends! I am Jenn Gross (aka @journeycoachjenn). I live near Chicago, IL and have been crafting and creating since I can remember. I am mom to a soft little furbaby – a Yorkie named Tye. 

I love to color and paint, so paper has always been a part of my life. I am super intrigued by interactive cards and paper-crafts. My style is whimsy and fun with an occasional bit of sassy added. My day job is in higher educations, but creating is my balance. I look for inspiration everywhere and try to make my card easy for others to create.

Hello everyone! It’s Jessica Shier. I started creating back in 2008, where I created a Guest Book for my wedding. I had so much fun going to the craft stores that I didn’t stop going! My first love was the Cricut and then it grew to stamps, dies and coloring. I’m really inspired by color and nature. I live in Washington state but love traveling on adventures with my little family.
 
You can find me on my blog (JessicaMayDay), Youtube channel (Jessica Shier) and Instagram (Jessica_Shier), I love sharing what I’m up to!
Karen Aicken

My name is Karen Aicken. I live in Alberta Canada, with my hubby of 37 years and our two dogs. I bought my first rubber stamp over 30 years ago and have been making all of our cards ever since! Paper crafting is more than a hobby for me, it’s a lifeline and too many days away from my craft room makes me cranky. I love making cards for people and thinking of them while I am creating. Card making is pain relief (I suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis) and stress relief, as well as how I gather my focus for the day.
 
You can find me on my blog (Painted Mountain Cards), YouTube Channel (Karen Aicken), Instagram (karenaicken)
 
I LOVE coming up with a creative or innovative idea and sharing it so people can get more use out of their supplies. I also am a big fan of using new products to breath extra life into your older products and I post cards on my blog every day (Painted Mountain Cards).

Hi my name is Lisa Golzbein and I live in sunny South Florida and I am known as “mom” to three wonderful children and three fur babies. I am also a Registered Nurse in a NICU where I take care of the most precious babies on Earth.

My mom and I have always been crafty souls and now my daughter and I craft together. I used to design custom invitations and announcements which led to scrapbooking which ultimately led to card making. My favorite of all is card making and I spend most of my very little spare time creating my “OhSoCute” projects!

I get so much joy out of creating cards, especially interactive ones. Although I used to love the shabby chic style of design, I now enjoy making all types of cards and learning new techniques. If I didn’t have to work and my cats would stay off of my craft table, I’d craft 24 hours a day!

Lynnea Hollendonner

Hello! I’m Lynnea Hollendonner. I’m from Scranton, PA and I’ve been making cards for 17 years – since I was a teenager! I have a wonderful husband who oohs and aahs at all of my cards and a 4 year old son who crafts as much as I do.

I love to create clean and simple cards that have a little something extra – maybe a pop of color, a fun technique, or added shimmer and shine. My hope is to bring you inspiration so that when you see my projects you think “hey I can make that!” and you sit down and get crafty yourself!

You can find me on multiple social media platforms including Instagram:

Hi my name is Niccole Kulig and I have been crafting for as long as I can remember. I live in a small town in Wisconsin. I have a very supportive husband and three amazing children. They range in age from 25 to 13. I also have an amazing granddaughter who is almost two. You will most definitely see photos of my tribe popping up here or there. I also have 3 fur babies; one dog and two cats.

I am a social worker by day and card making is a major stress reliever at the end of the day. I would live in my craft room if I could. I would say my style is more along the lines of clean and simple. I love to learn new things and share what I know with my friends.

I’m married, a mom and “T-Mommy” (grandmother) living in southeast Tennessee. I have always had that “need” to create whether crafting, altering, junk journaling or even remodeling. I love being busy with my hands. I’m a member of AFCI, design for several different manufacturers, have been published in various craft magazines and e-books and a social media coordinator. If I am not crafting I love to read and spend time at the beach with my husband.
