I am so excited to introduce the first Lynda Kanase Design Team! I’ve been dreaming about this for years and it has finally come together. I cannot express how much I admire the talents of these ladies. This Saturday, and every second Saturday of each month, this team will share their inspiration using my dies and stamps. Now let’s meet the team:
Amanda Stevens – Pear Blossom Press
I’m Amanda Stevens with Pear Blossom Press. I’ve been a crafter and cardmaker for as long as I can remember. As a kid, I’d draw scenes on folded pieces of notepaper and give them away. I went to my first Stampin’ Up party when I was 16, and I was hooked! (Rubber stamps really helped me improve my cardmaking game.) For almost 30 years, I’ve been learning and teaching others how to make cards too. I enjoy making my own backgrounds and creating cards with lots of layers. My favorite cards are interactive though! I’m currently on several design teams and I love to share my creations. You can find me on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter.
Lynda – I met up with Amanda at Creativation this year and fell in love with her sweet, bubbly personality. She amazes me with her out-of-the-box style of creating.
Daniela Costa – The Art Life of Daniela Costa
Hi! I’m Daniela Costa and I am a Scrapbook/Mixed Media Designer and Educator. I started scrapbooking over 15 years ago. Over the years I have worked with Manufacturers, Design Teams, Kit Clubs and various Local Scrapbook Stores. My style is a little bit crazy, a little bit vintage, with some modern touches thrown in for fun. I live in Northern California with my Husband, Son, and two rescue dogs. I love to craft every day and am so excited to be a part of Lynda’s team! You can find me on Facebook, Instagram, and my Blog.
Lynda – Daniela is a talented and creative mixed media artist and paper crafter that adds another dimension to this team.
Karen Aicken – Painted Mountain Cards
I have been making cards for over 30 years, back when supplies were extremely limited (especially in Canada) and I got most of my supplies from an office supply store. I remember using the backs of index cards to stamp on. Now there are so many lovely stamps, dies, stickers, and patterned paper available I get inspired just by looking at my huge stash of supplies! I love making cards – especially interactive ones, and donate 25 Birthday Cards each month to my Mom’s nursing home. My style goes through phases, and right now I’m loving bright and happy colours. I post on my blog daily and enjoy sharing ideas with my readers.
Lynda – I adore how excited Karen gets over my designs. She creates the sweetest cards and shares her amazing creativity and passion with the world.
Mitsyana Wright – Up On Tippy Toes
I am a self- proclaimed “CRAFTING NUT”, wife, and mother. I love many crafts including cardmaking, scrapbooking, mixed media, journal making and… pretty much any and all paper crafting!! I’ve been crafting professionally for the last 4 years and currently am on several design teams including, Eileen Hull Designs, Xyron, Clearsnap, and Diamond Press. I am married to my best friend for 13 years and we have 4 beautiful, energetic, crazy-smart, and highly imaginative kids (I think they get it from their mama). They are my crazy and chaotic world that I can’t get enough of and wouldn’t trade for them for anything! They are what push me and drive me but also keep me grounded. My family is my center and what inspires most of my work and without their love and support, I would not be able to do what I do.
Lynda – Mitsyana’s talent for rendering with her exquisite use of colors simply amazes me. Both her talents and personality shine so bright.
Pam Bray – A Girl With Flair
I am a Freelance Designer, Avid Artist and Educator of everything Papercrafting, Stamping, Mixed Media etc. I live just outside Memphis, TN; home of Blues and BBQ with my wonderful supportive husband. My design style is vintage chic with a lot of grunge whether I am making cards or home décor. I just love creating layers and textures I design stamps for Emerald Creek Craft Supplies and Blank Page Muse Stamps along with designing for several design teams and magazine. I always look forward to sharing my creative journey! Besides designing I enjoy traveling, photography, painting, etc.
