Hello and welcome to the second day of the Lawn Fawn release party. I am so humbled and honored at the response to yesterday's reveal. You guys have warmed our hearts and made us even more excited to start sneak peeking the sets tomorrow!
Tonight, I have the honor and pleasure of announcing the Lawn Fawn Design Team. These women are second to none. They wow me everyday with their talent and style, but that is not the only reason we love them! These women are some of the sweetest and kindest people I have ever met (either in person or on the web). So here we go!
Ashley Cannon Newell
Hey there! It’s me, Ashley and here’s a bit about me! I’m from Maryland, but currently reside in northern Virginia with my husband, McArthur, and our yorkshire terrier, Ozzy. I am a legal editor by day and a paper crafter by night. In 2006, I began stamping and card making. When I started my blog in 2008, I discovered that paper crafting was not just a hobby, but my passion in life. I’ve met some great friends and learned about myself since starting. Recently, I started a challenge-based e-zine that focuses on inspiring other paper crafters to create. You can find my work in many card-based publications. When I am not card making, I also enjoy traveling, photography, entertaining, and surfing the Internet.
Hi!! My name is Jessica and I live in sunny California with my awesome husband of 6 years and sweet little girl. I enjoy reading, writing, good music and of course paper-crafting. This passion I’ve had for over 5 years and am thrilled to share with everyone.
My name is Latisha Yoast, I am in my thirties, married to the best guy around and have a son and daughter who fill my heart. I was born and raised in California, but around 11 years ago my husband joined the Navy (helo pilot), and now we move every few years (good thing I love to travel). Today, we call Orange Park, Florida home. A few years ago, when both of my children were in elementary school, and I had more time at home to do “Latisha stuff”. It was then I decided, I now had time for a hobby. I have always loved art, paper supplies, making something from hand and the process of being creative, so paper crafting just seemed to be the perfect fit for me. I feel so lucky to be able to serve on various design teams and to have my work printed in magazines, it really is a thrill to create. Creating is my happy place, where I am able to zone out and put all of my stress and problems aside, I guess its like therapy for me. Being a military spouse, and dealing with moving and at times being alone, the one constant in my life besides my faith, is crafting and being creative. My family always comes first but having a creative outlet, reminds me of who I am. Besides being a card concept designer, I enjoy photography, scrapbooking, sewing, shopping and eating and a whole lot more, but this bio is getting long lol. Yep this is me in a nutshell.
I live in Indianapolis with my sweet husband of 2 years, Carlin, and our 2 dogs and 4 cats (you read this correctly, we have this many animals, but that is another story). We are active in our church, and love the Indianapolis Colts.
I’ve always had a love for all sorts of crafts. Paper-crafting, specifically card making is a passion of mine. I love the escape that card-making provides, and that I can complete one in a relatively short amount of time. Plus, who doesn’t love receiving a handmade card in the mail? It’s so nice to know that someone’s day will be brightened when they open their mailbox and find something besides bills and junk-mail.
I am so excited to be part of the Lawn Fawn design team. I love trying all sorts of new techniques in paper-crafting, but my standby is stamping. There are so many creative options with stamps that the possibilities are endless. The Lawn Fawn stamps are truly unique and open up so many creative options!
Hi! My name is Mariana Grigsby, and I live in Northern Illinois with my lovely family. I am originally from Mexico where I was raised and went to College to become a Graphic Designer. Even though I was introduced to the craft world many years ago by my mom, it was not until 2006 that I became addicted to it. Currently, I am 100% dedicated to my family, this gives me the time that I need to do what I definitely enjoy a lot, and I feel is my passion: scrapbooking layouts and making cards. Now, being part of the Lawn Fawn design Team I have another reason to keep feeding my creative spirit!
Sarah Martina Parker
Hi everyone! I am so excited to be a part of Lawn Fawn stamps! I guess you could say that paper-crafting is my first passion, but only if you don’t count my incredible family! I joined the online craft community in December 2008, diving in “head first,” and I haven’t been able to stop since! I am married to my hero and best friend, Sie. Together, we have a beautiful daughter, Sydney, and a fun-loving son, Sie, II. We are a busy bunch, but what more could a girl ask for? I am so thrilled to share with and be inspired by you all as we enjoy all that Lawn Fawn has to offer! Blessings, hugs & love! Geaux Saints!!!
My name is Tiffany Johnson. I’m a SAHM, an Army wife, Army daughter, avid papercrafter, music lover, dancer wannabe and pseudo-chef! I’m a very eclectic person and will try anything at least once! I love the great outdoors as much as I love curling up with a book in my club chair.
Can you believe this team?! I don't think I even can, and I've known for months! We are just the luckiest people around to be in the company of these fabulous designers!
Thursday at 12:01am EST we will sneak peek our first set! The design team samples are going to blow you away! Until then spend some time checking out their blogs. You are guaranteed to be inspired!
Also, thank you so much again for your warm welcome into the craft world. We are just over the moon! You guys are THE best, and we cannot wait to start giving some sets away! :)
