Candice CrawfordPaper Crafting Elegance
My name is Candice Crawford and I am from Southeast Michigan. I enjoy making dimensional handmade cards using stamps and of course, lots of craft dies. I began my paper crafting journey in 2011 as an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, then later expanded my craft supply collection and creativity with various other brands and mediums. I am really excited to join the Poppystamps design team and to share my love for paper crafting with all of you. When I am not in my craft room, you can find me working as a full time Human Resources professional.
Dana KirbyD Kirby Stamps
Hi Friends! My name is Dana Kirby and I am from Central California. I am a wife to my wonderful husband, Ric. We have been married for 24 years and have two beautiful daughters. Meredith just graduated from college and lives and works in DC. Morgan is 19 and starting her second year of college in Spokane, Washington...so we are "empty-nesters". I started scrapbooking over 20 years ago when my oldest was born. One thing led to another and I found a love for card making and stamping. I've met some of the kindest people through this fun hobby. I am so excited to be a part of the Poppy Stamps Design Team and I can't wait to share my projects with all of you.
Jeanne JachnaA Kept Life
Hi! I live in Northwest Indiana near Chicago with my DH Roger, and Akita dog Miss Moriko. My hobbies include reading, gardening, and cooking, but my obsession is paper crafting. And my favorite craft product to play with is CRAFT DIES! I love clean graphic designs, color block and adding blingy extras. I have been crafting for as long as I remember, trying everything from candle wicking and leaded glass to jewelry and crochet. I can’t resist a rainbow of colorful ink, paper or markers. My time crafting is a sweet escape and a fun way to express myself. I am excited to be a member of the Poppy Stamps Design Team and can't wait to share my love of paper crafting with you.

Hi folks! My name is Michele, and I am an artist and writer living in a sweet Southern town with my wonderful husband Aaron, and three spunky black kitties, Felix, Max & Omar.

Nadine CarlierMy Scrap N Stuff
Hello, my name is Nadine Carlier and I have been crafting for about 19 years now with scrapbooking, handmade cards, mixed media, and altered art projects being my favorite things to create although I have done and love all things crafty. Well, almost all things crafty, I am not a fan of sewing. I would say my style would best be described as eclectic with a mixed media twist. Almost all my craft projects have some kind of ink, mist, paste or paint on them. I love getting messy, trying new techniques, making video tutorials, inspiring others and being inspired. There are so many talented and inspiring crafters out there and I am happy to be a part of this fabulous crafty community.

We are currently raising 15 chickens, 5 rabbits, 3 cats, 2 ducks and 30 koi, a fruit orchard and a garden full of veggies. I love to sew, draw, paint, and have been fortunate to make a living doing the things I loved. Oh yes, and I love all things paper! Cards, mostly, but have made some memory albums too. It's like Christmas when a new order of stamps and dies arrives. Inking up a new set and joining in on challenges is a way to be connected to some of the greatest most talented people on God's earth!

Patty TanuzCards By Patty Tanuz
Hi! I am a Mexican art and computer teacher, professional, wife and mother of 2: Hassive & Alberto, I call them My Tattishos hehehe:)))
My passion for art includes painting, drawing, music, photography and of course scrapbooking and card making.
Taking pictures is something I’ve enjoyed since I was a little girl (and even today). I am the photographer of the family .... If my lens does not capture what my eye sees and feels, then the picture is not right.
I’ve always been a scrapper, without knowing it was really scrapbooking. All my life I had a diary, and that's where I "practiced" my craft with materials that my mother gave me such as little buttons, pins, bits of cloth, etc.
I love to create and capture the great moments of my life in my scrapping work... People say that my style is characterized by a number of techniques and details that I apply on my cards and pages.... I love to make cards too. Kisses for all:)
Sue McRaeSue's Inky Fingers
Hi, my name is Sue and I live in a small town just outside of Canada’s National Capital Ottawa, with my husband and black cat, Pepper. I’ve been a paper crafter for over 25 years and became addicted to rubber stamping after I made my own Christmas wrapping paper. I have dabbled in a variety of crafts over the years, including jewelry making, embroidery, and knitting but my passion is working with paper. I’m not afraid to get inky or messy when making cards and enjoy using art supplies to try out different techniques. Experimentation is half the fun! I am thrilled to be on the Poppystamps design team and I hope to inspire you to love paper crafting as much as I do.
Tina WilstrupHandmade Paper Hugs
Hi everyone! I'm Tina and I live in a small town in the countryside in Denmark with my husband, daughter, and doggie. I've been creative all my life with various types of crafting including painting, mini Perler beads, and cross stitching. But when I discovered card making 3 years ago I was hooked! I love bold colors and I typically color with my Copics, ink blend or watercolor with my Distress inks. I love trying new techniques and I'm addicted to adding lots of glitter and sparkle. I aspire to inspire you. I am honored to be a part of the Poppystamps design team and can't wait to share my creative journey with you.
