Hi My name is Cindy van Oorschot, I live in Aurora Ontario Canada with my husband Bill and our four  feathered  friends, Bandit our conure parrot, Leland our cockatiel, Max our parrotlet and Sunny our lovebird.
I’ve been doing crafts most of my life I started with crocheting, and went onto knitting, cross stitch, then onto beading. I still enjoy working in these mediums, but my love has turned to paper crafts. I have been making cards now for 14 years. I started out doing  Pergamano, then using embroidery on paper, and onto 3d cards. I didn’t start getting into stamping until about 2007, which I only dabbled in it then. I then went to a Stampin Up party and learnt a lot more about rubber stamping and have been doing it since. I also enjoy doing digital scrapbooking. I've been involved on a few card making groups over the years, started my own blog in March 2008, and have been blogging since. I've been on the Design Team of Come and Get It for the past year, and love meeting all the new talented card makers and crafters out there.  To check out my creations you can visit my blog atCreating with Cindy


Hi, my name is Julie. I am the mother of one beautiful daughter living in Eastern Iowa. From the time I was old enough to hold a needle and thread I have been creating. I love needlepoint, cross stitch, and crocheting...things my Mom taught me.  I started card making on a serious basis about 6 years ago, but I bought my first stamp 15 years ago! I got involved with several on-line stamping groups, and learned more and more about card making. Three years ago I started a blog, and REALLY discovered what card making was all about.  I have found Digital stamps in the last 2 years and LOVE them. I am a Designer for Bugaboo Digi Stamps and Catch the Bug Challenges. I am also on the Design Team at Come and Get It Challenges, and have been having so much fun! I work with MANY other talented card makers, and have been blessed to "meet" SO MANY talented and wonderful people from around the world in Blogland!  Please feel free to visit my blog at Julie's Rubber Temple


Hi.  My name is Judy McKay and I am retired and recently moved with my husband to the sunny Okanagan, British Columbia, Canada. I love all areas of paper crafts and especially addicted to anything related to card making.   I have been making cards for close to ten years and an active member of several rubber stamp, ATC and mix media Yahoo groups, one which I am a moderator for.  I am a challenge and technique junkie. I started blogging last year to share my search for my creative side and you can view my creations at:
My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. "You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”


Hi everyone, my name is Meighan Wheller and I live in Sydney Australia.  I am the mother of a wonderful daughter and we share our home with Daisy the Dog (a Border Collie) and Flick the Bird (a cockatiel).
I attended my first card class about 10 years ago and I was hooked.  I am always inspired by new techniques, challenges and general curiosity of what everyone is else is doing and then finding the time to give this new inspiration a go.
I have been a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator now for nearly 3 years, although I mainly create cards I have recently been challenging myself to make some 3D projects and some scrapbooking.
I am so lucky to have connected and to continue to be connecting with so many wonderful and very talented people who all love to share their passion and enthusiasm for creating.  You can visit me anytime at Stampin with Meighan.



I have been crafting since I was little.  Mum taught me how to knit when I was quite young and I used to knit clothes for my dolls.  Late teens saw my friend and I buying material to make a dress on a Wednesday, cutting it out the same night, sewing it on Thursday and wearing it on Friday when we went dancing!  I knitted and sewed for the children when they were small then discovered x-stitch.  I did that for a few years till we had no more space on the walls for pictures! 

I have been making cards since 2001 and I started my blog in 2007.  I have 'grown' so much since then as there are many wonderfully talented people in blogland to learn from.

I am Carol and I live in Manchester, in the north west of England. I worked as a Social Worker on a heart transplant team until I retired a couple of years ago, and I live with my lovely husband of 39 years who encourages me to get crafty. Now that my 3 children have flown the nest, I am lucky enough spend lots of my time papercrafting, reading and seeing friends. My first papercrafting love was scrapbooking but now I mostly make cards and share them on my blog at Inky Fingers I am so pleased  to be on my first design team and I look forward to getting lots of inspiration from seeing everyone's contributions.


My name is Linda Anderson and I live near Pittsburgh, PA with my wonderfully understanding husband, two boys and two cats. My oldest son just started college this year at the University of Pittsburgh. My youngest is 15 and has special needs. I work outside the home teaching taekwondo (I'm a 4th degree black belt). My crafting career started when I was very young and my cousin taught me how to sew...I had the best dressed Barbie doll around! I've dabbled in various crafty goodies with card making and scrapbooking being my most recent. I've always said making cards is cheaper than therapy. I don't think that's true anymore!  You can find my creations on my blog at The Stampers Touch
