DT Cathie Snyder-Watt

Hi, I’m Cathie. I am so excited to be a part of Simply Crafty SVGS Design Team. I have been crafting for well over 25 years now and I don’t think there is a “craft” I haven’t at least tried. I found paper crafting about 21 years ago and fell in love. I started with just scrapbooking and then moved into other designs. I Fell head over heels with 3D paper crafting about 8 years or so ago. l am a wife of 28 years, a Mom to 2 adult children, and I work part-time for JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts (which I love). I live in San Diego CA., but I am originally from Philadelphia PA. I am so looking forward to making some fun items and sharing them with everyone.

Hi 🙂 My name is Helle and I’m from Denmark. I live with my life companion of 30 years and our two boys. Since my accident in 2007, I can’t work anymore but luckily I have my paper crafting to keep me busy all day (and night). I am a Halloween Freak with a capital H and a 3D project addict but I also enjoy making cards  and I love colors. Lot of colors! I’m also practicing to alter files and hope to be able to make designs of my own someday. Other than that I’m just your average Nutcase and I love having fun with my family and friends

Janet Packer

Janet lives in Scotland where the unpredictable weather gives plenty of ‘stay-in-doors’ opportunities for crafting. She’s a big fan of Silhouette cutting machines and loves making 3D items as well as cards and all manner of home décor projects. She loves to add a little extra surprise to her makes, so look out for those unexpected colour combinations and use of unusual media.

Janet’s creative journey started at age 4 when an inspired relative gave her a lovely big box of Caran D’Ashe pencils. Since then she’s passed though phases of painting, dressmaking, sewing, and toy-making, and has finally found the perfect mix of technology and creativity in papercrafting!

Nancy Nickel

Hello…I’m Nancy and I live in a small town in Saskatchewan, Canada, with my sweet and supportive husband. I entered the paper crafting world about 7 years ago, and enjoy making cards, layouts, tags, mini albums…everything. I discovered the joy of using cut files when I was generously gifted with a Cricut Explore Air Machine. I’m excited to be joining the Simply Crafty SVGs Design Team, and I look forward to sharing Sandy’s great files with you!

Leslie Turner

My name is Leslie, I’m married with two grown children and one granddaughter, and I live in beautiful Colorado. I began scrapbooking about 40 years ago, way back when scrapbooks were really bland – before all the fun papers and embellishments came about. For the last 20 years or so, my paper passion has been card making. I started out making computer-generated cards, graduated to card kits, then quickly realized that having my own stash of stuff was the way to go! The rest is history, as they say! I’m addicted to rubber stamping and also enjoy making all kinds of 3-D paper projects and altered items, and I’ve been bitten by the mixed media and art journal bugs! Thanks so much for the opportunity to be part of the Simply Crafty SVGs Design Team!

Jana Forrest

Hello! I am Jana Forrest. My last name is suited to a rainy wet Oregon. It seems like I was born crafting and have been at it since I was 8. Sewing, cooking and currently paper crafting. Mostly cards but stretching my wings with 3D SVGs. My hubby Bob and I have a machine shop 10 miles from our home and we can be found there most often. We have 2 purring cats that rule the roost, Spooky Forrest and Emerald Forrest (seemed like perfect names to me) A daughter and daughter-in-law with a ton more animals. (DIL is a VETERINARIAN)

When fishing season opens, we head to the Pacific Ocean for salmon and halibut fishing in our big boat. Please feel free to come visit my blog, Life should be full of mirth. It takes to much energy to be grumpy. Hope to see you soon.

Mike Fernholz

I have been crafting for most of my life with various materials and processes. I started to focus on paper crafting after seeing a YouTube video of someone building a 3D paper project. I went out and bought a machine just to be able to create that project and have been doing 3D paper crafting ever since. I started a blog in 2015 so that I can share my photos, tips, ideas and tutorials and unofficially started a YouTube channel to offer additional tutorials but really started focusing on that aspect in 2017. I also have an Etsy shop that I started in 2015 but really didn’t focus on stocking it with products until 2017, where I enjoy creating SVG files for both paper crafting and vinyl.

Christi Conley

My name is Christi Conley and I can be found in the lovely state of Colorado where I live with my four cats and my main Man.  I’ve always been creative but I didn’t discover paper crafting until the internet became popular.  That’s where I discovered the jot of rubber stamping and later the magnificence of paper crafting.

I adore all types of crafting; it depends on my mood! Using my Silhouette Cameo has been such a great experience and I’m thrilled to be able to share some of my crafting with you!

Lena Fonkert

I was born in Lisbon, Portugal but raised in Durban, South Africa. We have now called Pearland, Texas, home for the last 20 years. I’m a stay at home mom who has been married to a wonderful man for 31 years.  We have two wonderful children, a daughter who is 27 and a son who is 21. I’m also the proud grandma of a 3 year old princess and a sweet baby munchkin 🙂 Although I have always enjoyed scrapbooking, it wasn’t until a few of years ago that my affair with card making began. My other hobbies are reading and baking and travelling with the family to visit new places.

Julie Odil

My name is Julie Odil, and I am thrilled to be on the Simply Crafty SVGs design team.  I love the clean, simple, crisp designs (with easy to follow instructions!) that Sandy designs.

I’ve always been creative – I play many instruments, like to write, and have been crafty my whole life.  I began scrapbooking about 11 years ago and cardmaking about 7 years ago, but things really took off when I began my blog 5 years ago.  It was a life changing experience.  I can’t believe how much fun I’ve had and how many friends I’ve made through my blog. I’d love it if you’d stop by for a visit.

Keep watching to see what they create. I am sure it will be fabulous!  Happy Crafting!

Deb Peterson Rauch

I’m a retired nurse and have been married to my husband for 34 years. I’m also the mother of two grown boys, and have recently become a first time Grandmom!  I’ve been crafting since I was a young girl. I’ve tried many crafts, but for the last 15 years I have been papercrafting. I have also expanded into mixed media, altered items, and most recently art journaling. I love learning new techniques and making new crafty friends.

Els Schutte

My name is Els Schutte and I live with my wonderful and talented husband, Michael, on Vancouver Island in Parksville, British Columbia, Canada. As long as I can remember I have been creative; I worked in a bakery, as a seamstress in an interior design store, and then opened and managed my own craft store from 2006-2012.  In 2013 my husband and I moved from the Netherlands to Canada.  In the Netherlands I taught several classes each week at my store and now I teach private classes in scrapbooking, in addition to designing cards, digital layouts, mini-albums and altered items by special request. Much of my day is spent crafting, so know that I am able to devote the time needed to create weekly and monthly projects!

Over the years, I have entered several competitions and had my winning cards, digital scrapbook pages and altered items published in several magazines (Cards Only, Creatief, Hobbyzine, Webster’s Pages). I have always been inspired by beautiful paper and scrapbooking products, love to try new techniques and enjoy sharing that inspiration with others by creating projects together in class and by creating meaningful gifts that can be enjoyed by others.

Kimberly Sisco

I am Kimberly Sisco and live in  Springfield, MO with my husband, Michael, and our fur babes (9 year old pups) Cooper and Felix.  When I am not in creative mode I am working as an R.N.

For as long as I can remember I have had a desire to create, but it was about 9 years ago when I purchased my first electronic die cutting machine, a Cricut Personal, that I developed a love for paper crafting, especially card making. I have a passion for creating and sharing the art of paper crafting. I also enjoy stamping, painting, and sewing.
