Hi crafty friends! My name is Amanda and I live in Oregon with my amazing husband, our wonderful daughter, and our 3 wild fur babies.
My day job doesn’t have anything creative about it so I really enjoy my time in the craft room. I’ve always been crafty, especially with paper, but started focusing on just cardmaking and improving techniques about 3 years ago. I look forward to the adventures this year brings.
My name is Andrea, and I live in the beautiful state of Tennessee. I’m a wife to a wonderful, supportive man and mama to two human babies and two fur babies. I originally got into paper crafting with scrapbooking, but a few years ago, I fell hard for cardmaking (I still scrapbook because I want to preserve my family’s stories, but I spend way more time – and money! – making cards!). I love coloring, especially with Copics, and trying new techniques. I’m super excited to be on the Therm O Web team! I just love their fun products and all of the detail, dimension, and texture they add to projects!
I work full-time as a Graphic Designer/Pre-Press Operator at a small print company. I have been involved in some aspect of art my entire life. From oil paints and watercolors as a child to paper crafting and digital art as an adult, rarely a day has gone by in my world that doesn’t include art. I am an Alumnus of a National Art School, where I graduated with Honors and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Visual Communications. I started paper crafting shortly after graduating from High School, but I ended up just hoarding supplies and not completing any projects. But, a few years ago, my love of paper crafting was rekindled when I was invited to scrapbook at a friend’s house. I have been obsessed ever since!!! The name of my blog comes from my love of Autumn and everything Fall (and it helps that I have an Autumn birthday, too!).
Hello, my name is Deb Riddell and I live in British Columbia, Canada on a small acreage with my hubby and our beloved rescue dog. I started my creative journey as a watercolour and decorative painter but once I discovered mixed media and papercrafts I was hooked and am having so much fun exploring these art forms. I have been fortunate enough to be on several design teams and to have had my work published in a number of craft magazines and am really looking forward to being a part of this amazingly talented design team here at Therm-O-Web.
Hello, I’m Ellen and I live a little further from the USA; I come from Belgium and live with my husband Davey who I recently married.
Like all of us, I love being creative and I even studied arts for a while. Now I make cards to be a bit creative during my free time. I feel so lucky to start with this awesome design team. Therm-O-Web is such a game-changer in this industry! It’s really amazing how you can turn your cards into something special and looking so professional using foils, paste, glitter, flock,… I’m going to have such a blast creating with all the items and I hope to give you a lot of inspiration during this fun journey.
Hi! My name is Heather Collins and I’m thrilled to be designing for Therm O Web!!! I am a wife, and Mom of two uniquely amazing children; an 11-year-old girl and an 8.5-year-old boy. You might know me as the Creative Coordinator and In-House Designer at Brutus Monroe. I enjoy doing a little bit of everything including, but not limited to ‘mixed media’, card making, ATCs, scrapbooking and quilt making. I also enjoy crafting with friends when given the opportunity. I find it very therapeutic and calming. Although I must admit I do collect a ton! I can’t wait to share my journey with you.
Hi! My name is Katrina and I live in Midwest USA! I am currently owned by four Cardigan Welsh Corgis, who appear in my layouts from time to time (or A LOT of the time)! I’ve discovered as an adult that I love to create and craft. I was never the artsy type while growing up unless you count cutting my doll’s hair. I have been scrapbooking since February 2009, when I decided to make a mini album for a friend. I discovered that I loved it! Well, let’s just say after that I went nuts with the paper, scissors, and glue. I love color, the more the better. To define my style is hard, as I do what makes me happy. I like to scrap everyday life and things, you never know what the subject of my project might be!
I’ve been married to my best friend Adam for 12 years, and we have two handsome boys, Beckett (11 yrs.) and Greyson (5 yrs.). We live on our Family Farm in Southwest Nebraska with an Entourage of Animals, and I enjoy EVERY aspect of living a rural life. I’m a Certified Surgical Technician. I ENJOY creating in every way, baking/cooking, gardening, singing, nature and taking photos. I’ve been a creative soul from birth!! I LOVE spending time with my Family and Friends and meeting/crafting with other creative people I’ve found/met online and through other events. I LOVE to try new techniques and experiment with my supplies. I look forward to inspiring you, and I cannot even begin to explain how HONORED and EXCITED I am to have the opportunity to design with this AWESOME Therm O Web Design Team!!
Hi! I’m Lynnea – wife, mom, and paper crafter! I got started when I was 13. I visited a counselor during my parent’s divorce and she suggested I try to work out my feelings through scrapbooking. I liked it, but I didn’t love it. I turned to cardmaking and I absolutely fell in love! I haven’t stopped since! I have a wonderful husband and an amazing son with the most touching story. He came to us when he was 2 weeks old with a severe addiction to heroin. He has grown in so many ways and he crafts with me almost on a daily basis! He’s 3 years old now and he’s my world! My style for papercrafting is clean and simple with a touch of pizzaz! I try to step up my clean and simple designs with various techniques. I love watercolors and stamping … and shiny things of course!
Hello crafty friends, I’m Mona from Slovakia, photographer, cat lover and addicted to cardmaking. As a child, I adored coloring and other creative things. I always liked painting and cutting papers.
If I need to describe my style: I love bright colors and I often use the rule of thirds. My favorite color is glitter (just kidding, but I love everything that is shining)! For me the best part of cardmaking is adhering, stamping and coloring! I love to try new techniques and make something different. I love cute and funny cards but elegant cards too. It’s a pleasure to be a designer at Therm-o-web, I hope you will like my creations. Be sure to check out my social media channels.
My name is Rebecca Keppel and I have been scrapbooking in the modern sense of the word since 2005. I have a daughter (age 7), a son (age 5) and a husband who is (for the most part) supportive of my scrapbooking. Although I have been “journaling” and taking tons of pictures my whole life, it wasn’t until I saw scrapbooking as a whole that everything clicked for me and the obsession began! Besides recording memories and playing with fun products, I love to learn new techniques and learn more about photography. My favorite way to add texture and dimension to my projects is by sewing because I love the homemade, unique touch it adds. Besides making layouts, I love cardmaking and making gifts for family and friends.
Hello from sunny Southern California. My name is Shemaine, and I am a work at home mom to two wonderful kids. I’m lucky to be married to a great guy who gets my wicked obsession for creating with paper and doesn’t mind me leaving a trail of scraps all over our home.
A few things you might not know about me, I love Good & Plenty candy, walks along the strand in Manhattan Beach on Sundays with my family and I’m a crime show junkie to boot! If my dreams of paper and glue forever were to fade, I can always become a profiler with all the knowledge I have gained from my obsessive watching. Music is a must in my life, nothing inspires me more. I’ve been so blessed this year with exciting opportunities and great friendships, life is good.
I am Suzanna Lee; mother, wife, Physical Therapist, cat nap partner, and a whole host of other titles! I have long had a hand in the crafting world but my love for patterned paper and fussy cutting began when we moved here to Glen Allen, Virginia and my paper collecting hobby became a paper cutting and layout creating hobby! It is an honor to share with the paper crafting community new techniques, innovative ways to use the product and share my love of paper, embellishments, and preserving your memories all while being creative!
I was born and raised in Southern California, and have lived in South Orange County for 20 years.I have been paper crafting for over 15 years but love art in any form. I really enjoy mixed media because of the versatility and the “anything goes” nature of it but I will always enjoy creating mini albums as unique gifts and to showcase summer beach days and the family vacations I enjoy with my husband, two boys, and Yorkie. I draw my inspiration from family first and then from things around me in my everyday life. After working in the legal field for over 20 years, I transitioned into a job in the crafting industry, working for Sizzix. I know that I am truly blessed to have found employment where I can practice my passion each and every day!
I’m Amy Chappell, a mother, wife, and creativity junkie! I started crafting as a way to stay sane in the early years of motherhood when it seemed I would never survive the endless diapers, sippy cups, and tantrums. And while I still have diapers and sippy cups around (I have six children, ranging in age from 16-2) creating has become much more than a survival mechanism. Sewing and crafting fill my life with inspiration and joy and I love sharing that joy with others.
Hi All!! I’m Amy. I am a stay-at-home mother of two. I have enjoyed creating ever since I can remember. I have fond childhood memories of painting Christmas ornaments with my family or learning a new crochet stitch from my grandmother. Creating carried over into my adult life. I started quilting and blogging in 2012 and I have loved it ever since. I always try to do something a little different each time I cut into a piece of fabric. When not creating in my sewing room, I enjoy spending my time camping, fishing, working in my yard, and making my kids laugh. I look forward to this new adventure working on the Therm-o-Web design team.
My name is Carla Henton and I am thrilled to be part of the Therm-O-Web team. I’ve been lucky to be surrounded by talented women all of my life starting with my mom and grandmother who taught me to sew and later with the great group of women who shaped me into a successful hairstylist. So that’s me, deep-rooted with an artsy side.
You’ll find me blogging about family and sewing adventures at Creatin’ in the Sticks. I live in a cabin in the country close to Dodge City, Kansas. That’s where the blog name came from. I’m the mother of two musical kids and the wife of my iron man (he’s a metal artist). I love the online sewing community where there is always a challenge or quilt along to join. I design sewing and quilting patterns along with tutorials and have organized blog hops and designed Blocks of the Month. I’ve been a free motion quilter on my domestic machine for 15 years, but have just added a long arm to my arsenal.
Let’s go on a creative adventure…
My name is Carol Swift and I’m retired from office administrative work. I live in Southern Utah, but also spend time in Nevada where I grew up, worked, and have a family. My blog was started in 2008 just to keep track of my sewing projects, but I soon stepped out of my comfort zone by participating in sew-alongs and blog hops. With the encouragement of others, it opened up a whole new world of sewing for me and enabled me to be more creative and think outside the box. I’ve also created a few patterns and enjoy trying new sewing techniques and products.
Being married and the mother of four children, three girls and one boy, I sewed a lot of clothes and household items over the years. I also sewed a few wedding dresses and designed hand quilted tricot quilts. Now I’m the grandmother of five grandsons we call the Monkey Boys, who earn their name by never stopping for more than a few minutes and climb on everything. They will stop long enough to sit on my lap or beside me while I sew and a couple of them have designed their own quilts and labels with my help. Being a part of the Therm O Web team is a whole new and exciting adventure for me!

Hello, my name is Joan Kawano. I have over 50 years of sewing and crafting under my belt, and newly retired from a 25-year career in the airline industry. My Aunt taught me to sew as a little girl, which stirred a passion that just keeps growing. After years of professional crafting, I unpacked the truck for the last time and taught myself to quilt. That truly was my ah-hah moment. Give me some scraps and a sewing machine, and I’m entertained for hours.I’m a mom of 2 boys who didn’t want my sewing for them that’s for sure, so turning my passion to quilts was the perfect solution.
In 2009 I started my blog with a goal of not just starting a zillion things, but actually finishing projects to share. What a concept! There I met an incredible community of fellow quilter/crafters, who introduced me to blog hops, swaps, designing and so much more. Never would I have guessed that it would lead me to become a part of a team of amazingly talented designers at Therm O Web. I’m very excited!
I love to laugh and find humor in everything. Combining that with my love of applique, I am working on “365 Silly Holidays” this year. You can find a new block daily, on my Facebook and Instagram page.

Hi! I was bitten by the creative bug early on in life, and have dabbled in drawing, scrapbooking, painting, photography, and fabric. I learned to sew as a young girl, making clothes for my Cabbage Patch Kid, and then got into quilting when I graduated from college. I’m a quilt pattern designer and frequently get caught up sewing my next idea late into the night. My quilting style leans toward modern and improv piecing, finding ways to give traditional ideas a twist. When I’m not sewing and pattern writing, I love to spend time outside hanging with my husband and three wild and crazy boys.
I’m a wife and a mother of three. I love spending time with my family, traveling, working out, and doing any and all craftiness as often as possible. I am a craft blogger and a simple sewing pattern designer. I absolutely love coming up with new pattern designs and making them available for others to sew.
Hello! My name is Stephanie Cunnyngham, and I am a wife, boy-mom, and farmhouse-dwelling girl who loves sewing and living in the country. I grew up in rural Indiana and have lived here all my life. I married a handsome man I met at a Civil War reenactment, and we have two very handsome, energetic, and fun-loving little boys.
I guess you can say I have always loved being creative. My mom and I would spend Saturdays painting or sewing when I still lived at home. My granny lived two miles down the road, and she was an avid quilter that was always sewing something at her kitchen table or making quilts to sell. I would go visit her and she would try to teach me to hand-quilt or crochet, but she was left-handed and I was young, so we would get frustrated with the sewing quickly and decide we would rather just spend our time together talking and eating pie. I carried my love for art and creativity to college with me, and my first college degree is in Art History from DePauw University. I loved taking art classes in college and learning about composition, layers, and working with different methods or creating. When I got married and moved away from home, my mom bought me my first sewing machine, a white machine with purple accents by Kenmore from Sears. I made curtains for our apartment and aprons to sell at markets and fairs. My love for quilting really took off when I discovered Lori Holt from Riley Blake Designs. I loved her fabric, her patterns, and her home. Her free tutorials on her blog roped me in and I haven’t looked back since. I have also started to write my own patterns. I have a couple of mini quilt patterns on my Etsy shop that I have designed, and I have designed two projects that have been published in Homespun magazine.
I also have a Master’s Degree in Nursing, and I currently work as a consultant for two different hospitals. Over the last few years, though, I have started spending more time at home and less time at work so I can focus on enjoying my boys and on turning my sewing hobby into more than just a hobby.
