Introducing the Lynda Kanase 2019 Design Team

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:

Lynda Kanase Design Team 2019

Amanda Stevens – Pear Blossom PressAmanda Stevens2
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.

LyndaI 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
Daniela_Costa2

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 FacebookInstagram, and my Blog.

LyndaDaniela is a talented and creative mixed media artist and paper crafter that adds another dimension to this team.

Karen Aicken – Painted Mountain CardsKaren_Aicken

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.

LyndaI 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
Mitsyana_Wright

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.

LyndaMitsyana’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
