CINDY SCHUSTER - USA
I lead a very fulfilling life here in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia USA that includes my strong faith, my family and friends, everything Disney and being creative! I have been married for 23 years to my high school sweetheart and we have two wonderful daughters; Megan and Allison. All through my life, I have been very artistic and crafty. I even have a degree in Art Education which combines my two favorite things: art and teaching! I love to teach or inspire others to find their own creativity! Over 12 years ago, I came across Stampin' Up at a workshop and fell in love with their top quality products that perfectly coordinate together. I really love to dabble in everything from stamped cards, gift packaging, scrapbooking, Project Life, and home decor. You will find my style to be graphic yet clean and simple with a flair for crafty, functional fun! I was on the Stampin" UP! Artisan Design Team for three consecutive years (2013-2016) and loved every minute of it! I am excited to be a part of this collective of talented ladies and I hope you enjoy my slice of the carrot!
JENNIFER FROST - AUSTRALIA
Hello from Australia! I live in Central Victoria with my husband and two children. I fell in love with papercrafting in 2011 after attending my first Stampin' Up! class and signed up to be a demonstrator not long after. In the years since I've enjoyed sharing my love of crafting in local classes, through my blog and in national magazine publications. In 2015 I was recognised by Stampin' Up! and awarded a place on their 2015-2016 Artisan Design Team.
KRISTA FRATTIN - CANADA
I am a self-professed domestic diva and mother of three. I like to make the world pretty one crafty project at a time!
Before this stampin' thing that I do, I was an Architectural Project Manager. I have a passion for design. Color, accessories, and style permeate my life and when I was introduced to the company, Stampin' Up! in 2004, I knew I had found my calling teaching papercrafting. It was the perfect career change to allow me to be at home with our children.
Over the years I have achieved many awards from Stampin' Up! including an all-expense paid vacation each year since 2011, Founders Circle 2014 (placing as one of the top 20 demonstrators in Canada) and a place on the 2014-2015 Artisan Design Team and the 2015-2016 team.
As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for many years, I have become an industry expert in papercrafting with an emphasis on cardmaking, scrapbooking, party planning and DIY home decor. My passion has allowed me to empower hundreds of crafters from beginner to advanced with my events, classes, and my blog stampindolce.com.
I use my crafting talents to enhance home decor, preserve our memories, and create beautiful gifts. Birthday parties, holidays, and celebrations have taken on a picture-perfect flair thanks to the talents I've acquired, and am eager to share with you. I am an avid blogger and I am addicted to Pinterest and social media! Come visit and follow me!
SUSAN WONG - NEW ZEALAND
Hi, I'm Susan. I joined Stampin' Up! in 2009 when my eldest child was just crawling. Like many demonstrators around the world, stamping is my 'me' time with the added bonus of getting to share what I love with family and friends. Fast forward a few years and I'm a stay-at-home mum to four and enjoy stamping as much as ever. I've been honoured to be on the Artisan Design Team for 2014-15 and 2015-16 and I so look forward to sharing quality designs with you through this collective.
VALERIE MOODY - UNITED KINGDOM
My name is Valerie Moody and I live in Rugby, England. I'm married to my amazingly patient husband of 12 years, I am a stay-at-home-mum to our identical twin daughters who are nine. Despite a mother who sewed, knitted, made jewellery and more; for many years, I never considered myself to be of a crafty disposition!
After completely a degree in Molecular Biology, I followed a career in Genetic Research. One day though, I bought a card-making magazine in the hospital shop out of curiosity, and the rest, as they say, is history.One magazine contained an article showcasing Stampin' Up! and I immediately fell in love with the coordination of the products -everything matched! I joined up soon after with the intention of buying supplies for myself, but soon realized I would love to share the gorgeous products with my friends. That was seven years ago and I've never looked back.
My style is pretty clean and simple, I LOVE my Big Shot and I adore making 3D projects-gift bags and boxes are a particular favorite. I am so honored to have been chosen for this year's Artisan Design Team, and I look forward to sharing my creations with you.
