Past Design Team Members

Beth Moore,
Diet Pepsi provides me with late night superpowers so that I can succumb to my paper crafting addiction after a day spent as a partner, mom, grandmother and slave to my menagerie of animals. At my house, where even the dogs get cat hair on them, animal fur is a condiment and everyone is subject to starring in my scrapbook layouts, I look forward to retreating to my craft room at the end of the day to spend time re-fueling my soul by creating with pretty papers and glue and die cuts too of course! I can't begin to express how thrilled I am to be part of such an exciting and diverse team at Cheery Lynn Designs and feel so honored to have a chance to help inspire you to create beautiful cards and paper projects with the fabulous dies available at Cheery Lynn Designs!

Bonnie Brown
My name is Bonnie Brown. I live in Howell MI.  I have been married for 36 years; have 3 married sons and 12 grandchildren. I began scrapbooking in 1999.  In 2001, I ventured to the dark side and began to rubber stamp.  I discovered I really enjoyed stamping.  Today I spend more time designing cards than scrapbooking.  Guess I found my true crafting love!!  I became Copic Certified Instructor in 2008.  A friend talked me into trying Copics.  I have to admit that this is my absolute favorite coloring medium.  My husband and I are avid campers or RV'ers.  We love the open road!!  Other time is spent with my grandchildren, 8 of who live in Michigan and 4 in Montana.

Debbie Sherman 
Hi!  I'm Debbie Sherman from the Cowboy State, big beautiful Wyoming!  I'm so excited to be part of the Cheery Lynn Design Team!  When I'm not scrap booking I am a road designer, photographer, wife, mother, grandmother of 6, auntie and friend. I have been crafting since I was a little girl.  I started out sewing and making jewelry around the age of 7 and have been creating ever since.  I still bead and sew but now it's mostly on my paper projects.  I love photography and sometimes get that "great shot" that all photographers live for!  I am fortunate enough to have a press pass and am able to shoot big events occasionally. The city I live in has a yearly old west celebration called the"Daddy of 'em all" and I'm fortunate enough to attend the big rodeo's, Native Americans and several other events in town. With my press pass I have front row seating for these events which allows for some awesome photos. With all the photos I take it gives me the perfect reason to scrap them! I'm hoping to share some of those with all of you! I'm so excited to be part of this wonderful team and hope to inspire and be inspired along the way.

Irit Shalom
My name is  IRIT and I am from sunny ISRAEL. In my "real life" I am a dentist, but for the last 4 years I do it as a part time job, because I need some extra time  for my scrapping and crafting addiction and I  have a lot of fun doing something else after 25 years of dentistry. I have been married for 28 years to a retired high police officer, who is the full time family cook these days.  I am a mom to 4 grown ups: 2 sons and twin daughters. The empty nest is probably the main reason for my obsession for crafting - finally I have some time for myself.  My oldest son is an  army officer, married and will be a dad in about 8 weeks. The second one is " a world traveler" - for the last 4 years after his army service he is out of Israel for at least 9 months a year- lives and works in Spain. My twins are in their second year of college and my  major scrapbooking inspiration.   I need to say that I have been totally addicted to crafting since I was a little girl. For many years it was a  polymer clay and jewelry making, but after I saw a scrapbook layout for the first time in my life (only 5 years ago during my visit to USA), I  finally understood  that I am in love with paper. Today I mostly scrap and do altered art and less card making.   I have been a  design team member in about 9-10 challenge blogs and was a guest designer on lots of others  during the last year, but now I decided to do some real design work and don't take any challenge blogs DT  spots anymore.  Right now I  am a permanent designer  for UK chipboard company named Tando creative, for an Australian shop named Scrap with V and a staff member on SNR web magazine. I was published in print in Israel several times and was published in every possible web magazine during the last year. Last, but not least- my other addiction is..... folk dancing. So if I am not in my crafting room- I am probably dancing.  I am totally thrilled to be a part of this great DT here and hope to do my best.

Jeannie DeGruccio
I am so excited to be part of Cheery Lynn Designs. I am looking forward to creating some fun things to inspire!  Who am I?  Well, I am Jeannie, I am a mom of 7 kids, ranging from 19 down to 3 years.  Yes they are all mine...same mom, same dad.  22 years of marriage and we are still working together, making it up as we go along.  With as many kids as I have, crafting has become a form of therapy for me.  I have to say, I enjoy all crafts, but paper is my passion.  Cards, scrapping, home decor?  If it can be done with paper, I am up for the challenge.  I love it all.  If I had to describe my style, I would say that I am a whimsical paper artist. I have been a fan of Mary Engelbreit since before she was born.  Well not really but, I have loved her FOREVER.  My hope is to inspire people to find their own style.  Everyone has one, they just have to tap into it.  “I CAN’T” should never be in anyone's vocabulary when it comes to creating.  I hope you enjoy the projects I will create and share.

Jodi Baune
I am a dedicated, fun-loving country girl with two boys ages18 and 22, and an amazing husband.  I am very blessed that they are extremely supportive of my hobby.  I am the shy, quiet type...most of the time :) I am a weird mix of girly girl and tom boy. Pedicures are awesome, but I'm not afraid to dip my pretty toes in a puddle or two! Pretty much, I am just the girl next door. During the day  I tend to seven precious small children by operating a daycare business in my home.  Some of my other interests include gardening, reading, and browsing through antique shops for inspiration.I love vintage!

My name is Kianel and i am almost 40. I am living in France now, in a town called Orléans and famous for Joan of Arc (where she was born), situated in the Loire valley where you can find many beautiful castles and famous wines!  I started scrapping in 2008 and I am more of a cardmaker. I can scrap and make LO's too but just loooove to make cards and different boxes! My style is shabby / vintage I guess.  I am part of different DT and work for the Magnolia ink magazine and I am now very proud to join the terrific Cheery Lynn Designs DT!!!   Voilà,This is going to be so much fun!!! And I beg you to forgive my coming mistakes in English...
Love from France, Kianel.

Sandie Louise
I am thrilled to be working once more with Cheery Lynn Designs as part of their 2012/2013 design team.  My name is Sandie, and I live in Geraldton, Western Australia with my partner John, and we are older parents to a beautiful son, Jesse who is 3 in March, 2013. I am currently a stay-at-home-Mum with previous employment being law enforcement.   Creativity has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and runs in the gene's with my Mother being an Artist.  My love of paper-crafting took place two years ago, and it has been a journey of enlightenment, that has continually evolved, with many new learning paths.   I enjoy pushing boundaries in my creativity, and attempt to step out of my comfort zone here and there, with my creative style leaning towards 'vintage', but not always.  I aim to be an inspiration to others, and of course create everlasting memories for future generations.

Sandy Hulsart
 I am excited to be working with Cheery Lynn Designs and the fabulous women of the design team.  I think we will have great things in store for you.  I have been a crafter of some sort all my life but did not start stamping/card making until the summer of 2005.  I teach scenic stamping and Copic classes in Mid-Michigan as well as online classes at My Creative Classroom.  This summer, I discovered Cheery Lynn Designs' dies and embossing plates and knew I wanted to work with them so I am truly blessed to be a part of the design team.

Tamara Morton 
Hi I'm Tamara, married to a fabulous hubby that is very understanding and supports me through my crafting addiction. We have a beautiful daughter, Savannah who brings us joy and happiness each and everyday. I started paper crafting in 2005 after receiving a handmade card from my cousin it inspired me so much I thought I would give it a go, since then I've been hooked. The first major craft item I purchased was the Sizzix Big Shot which is still going strong today with my crafting space going from the dining table to a purpose build cabin at the bottom of the garden and I have to say I think I might need a bit more space. I can be found there most days with glitter, glue, sticky pads and Copic's all around (a girl in heaven).  I am so thrilled and honoured to be designing for Cheery Lynn, they are the best dies on the market.
