Design Team

Meet my current terrific Design Team!

Meet Barbara Bruder:   
Designer and Design Team Coordinator:

I love paper crafting and I also love designing and making cards using rubber stamps, ribbons and all the fabulous embellishments available. I also love using tools, whether its a punch or a die or a tool to assist in making bows. I've been stamping for 15+ years and it has been a great time. Making cards and other projects are such a wonderful way to express yourself, give inspiration to others and give joy to a recipient.

I am very fortunate to have a great partner who supports my ongoing love of paper crafting. He has been instrumental in getting my studio organized and more functional.Thanks, Frank. We also have 2 cats that are my constant companions and they love to come and watch me create.  You can also find me at

I'm a legal secretary who pushes paper all day so I come home each
night and push more paper :) I'm lucky to have a husband who also
has hobbies so he understands when I become involved in a project. 
I have an adult daughter who is a specialized veterinarian 
technician that I'm very proud of. I am mom to 2 beagles and 3 
cats. I love stained glass and gardening as well as cardmaking and 


Kathy Barnett

Hi my name is Kathy Barnett.
  I am a mother of 2, a son and a daughter in college. 
I have a great hubby of almost 30 years who has put up with all of my hobbies throughout our time together.
Like my Mother, Grandmothers and Great-Grandmothers, I started crafting at a very early age.  Embroidery, ceramics (eventually taught ceramics in my early 20's), cross stitching, crocheting, making porcelain dolls, tole painting, scrapbooking, knitting, weaving and even spinning my own yarn on either a wheel or a drop spindle.  I am fully engaged in making cards and photo albums.  I love the coloring process the most, but I also enjoy building all the elements in the end to create special and unique cards for giving.
When I am not coloring a stamped image, or creating a layout for a card you may see me knitting, spinning or weaving at a loom.

Creating, this is who I am.  Put something in my hands and I am in my own world.
