The Designers

(Challenge Creator & Challenge Designer)

Hi there! My name is Lesley Croghan. I am a primary school teacher and I am from Canada. I am happily married to my hubby, Corey and we have two fur babies, Rolley the Rocket dog and Penney the Princess puddy! I started making cards in 2007 and then began blogging my cards in 2009. My passion for card making and card making challenges inspired me to create my own card challenges online. I am also passionate about the performing arts and spent many years singing professionally. I am so happy to be working with this inspiring team!



The 2017 Design Team


Becca Cruger
I've been crafting ever since I discovered how to attach glitter to paper! You'll frequently find me with ink all over my hands because I LOVE working with messy products - especially Ranger Distress products. I am the owner of Damsel of Distressed Cards in Grand Forks, ND and teach card making and mixed media art classes. I also design stamps for STAMPlorations. My card designs are very eclectic and my favorite way to create is by layering and incorporating mixed media.


Hi, my name is Karen Davis and I live in Auckland, New Zealand. Graham and I have been married for 20+ years and we share our home with three dear old cats, and one darling rabbit. I work from home designing and writing patterns for quilts, bags, and softies, for my business, Pieceful Life Designs. I have also been a quilt tutor for 8 years. My spare time is spent making cards. I started dabbling in paper crafting seven years ago, but it wasn’t until the end of last year that I became aware of the huge online card making community and challenges. I am delighted to be a part of The Card Concept’s amazingly talented design team.


I am blessed to be married to my best friend for over 30+ years and currently we are now retired!   Since childhood I have been drawing and/or painting, and in 1999 was introduced to stamping at a Stampin’ Up! party and have been "hooked” on cardmaking ever since!  I tend to become creative in the wee hours of the morning and love to design with my two beautiful “kitties” by my side.   I like to experiment with different design styles and am thrilled to be part of the Card Concept Design Team! 


Hi! My name is Michele. I am a northern transplant to a sweet Southern town here in the deep South. My husband and I, along with our four feline fur babies live in steamy Alabama where we love Southern style barbecue and Crimson Tide football! I've been artsy all my life but started card making a few years ago and fell in love with this wonderful crafting community. I love working with layers of paper and color and am thrilled be part of The Card Concept!


I am a St. Patrick's day baby from Beautiful British Columbia, Canada with a passion for card making. When I'm not in the studio, I'm a Grade One elementary teacher, happy wife to Tony, proud mom to Jake, and loving Grandmoe to Ashlynn and Beckham.  I am honoured to be on The Card Concept Design Team!


Hi there! My name is Susan. I live in a small town in Beautiful British Columbia, Canada with my husband of 25 years and one of our daughters (who is getting ready to go off to University). Our other daughter left a few years ago and is almost finished her schooling. There aren't any craft stores where I live but thankfully there's the internet or I'd go crazy. My husband and my kids would tell you that's not a long trip - haha. By day I'm an Education Assistant in the town high school (we only have one) and by night I'm a stamper. I love all styles of cardmaking but usually find myself gravitating towards the CAS style. I'm super excited to be joining The Card Concept Design Team!


             Rahmat           
Hi I am Rahmat, I live in the Las Vegas of Asia - Macau. A crafter since childhood, started with embroidery and then moved onto paper crafting.

Besides card making, I also enjoy cooking, and give lessons for free on Indian cooking. I love CAS mostly, but I do love to try out different techniques from time to time.

Hi, I'm Julee Tilman, a dabbler in many arts, mama to identical twin boys, and Owner/Illustator/Wonder Woman at Verve Stamps. I live in the beautiful Boise, Idaho foothills and have been stamping for 20+ years. I have a soft spot for all things Hello Kitty, a good cup of coffee, and rainbow ordered craft supplies. I adore mixed-media, distressing, and lots of layers, but also thrive on trying new things and blurring the lines between styles.



Hello!  My name is Jennifer Timko.  In my "day job, I am a pilot for United Airlines flying the Airbus 319/320.  But I love paper crafting whenever (and wherever) I can fit it in!!  I have been married for 15+ years and have two boys (13 yo and 10 yo)...so I drive the soccer "bus" when I'm not busy flying my Airbus.  My crazy schedule might be the reason I am a clean stamper.  I need to simplify and declutter when I can!  I love clean lines and fun details.  I am thrilled to be part of The Card Concept Design Team!

I live right smack-dab in the middle of Canada (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan to be exact), so to keep warm and cozy indoors I continued scrapbooking.  Then I realized that I would rather share my hobby with others and started card creating.  I have been crafting cards since 2008 and love it more every day!

Colleen Dietrich
Classy & Elegant

Hello everyone, I’m Colleen Dietrich!   I’ve always tended to have only one hobby at a time, and in the past, wreath-making, miniatures, gardening and quilting were interests of mine.  Do housecleaning and organizing count as hobbies?  ;-)  I enjoy those, too.   Card-making entered my life in 2007, via an SU demonstration, and blogging in 2010.  Card-making is my very favorite hobby.   It trumps everything else!  Thanks to Lesley for asking me aboard.  So happy to be here!


Clean & Graphic

I started cardmaking in 2006, at a Stampin’ Up! Party and have never looked back. Before that, I would not have claimed to be crafty or creative at all – I’m an accountant! 

Currently, I’m a sahm to my teenage son Struan and my ‘tween’ daughter Kate. I also volunteer in my daughter’s school and I am the piano accompanist for two children’s choirs. 

I’m thrilled to be working with such talented card makers on a challenge blog that has such an interesting premise. I love clean, graphic design with bold colours and lots of white space, but I’m looking forward to learning a lot from the other DT members and participants who specialize in other styles!

Hi, I'm Kay Miller. I live in the middle of the Ozark mountains with my sweet hubby, two fabulous kids, and quite an assortment of furry friends.

I am seriously excited to be on this team  of amazing designers, and can't wait to provide you with some inspiration for the layered clean look!

Cathy Weber

Hi there...I'm Cathy Weber and I live in Southern California with my husband of 34 years.  It wasn't until my three children grew up that I discovered there was a "crafty" side of me.   My typical crafting style is Clean and Layered, but I am going to stretch myself right out of my comfort zone and be one of the designers who represent the Classy and Elegant style.  Those two styles actually have a lot in common and I hope to be able to combine the best of both as I join what I consider to be the “hottest” card challenge out there today…The Card Concept.  Let’s see how much “Classy & Elegant” I have in me!

Hi, I’m Mary…. married to Alan, and live just outside of Pittsburgh. My passion for paper crafting started as a young girl.

Excited to be a part of the wild card team.

My spare time is spent making cards. I started dabbling in paper crafting seven years ago, but it wasn’t until the end of last year that I became aware of the huge online card making community and challenges.

I am delighted to be a part of The Card Concept’s amazingly talented design team. I will be sharing the Freestyle Collage Style with Cindy Lovell.

Hi, my name is Teresa Kline; I live in Virginia with my husband Gary. I have always been crafty, but started stamping about 10 years ago. I started out scrapbooking, but quickly started dappling in card making. I have had the great pleasure of being on numerous deign teams and look so forward to my guest spot her at Card Concepts. I enjoy most of all sending my cards in hopes of bringing a smile to someones face. I hope that my work makes you smile and inspires you to create!


Hello!  My name is Laurie Willison and I am a mom of 2 from Kansas.  I am an party time RN and part time SAHM and a full time crafter!  :)  I have started scrapbooking back in 1998 and then was introduced to stamping in 2007....and I have been hooked every since.  My style is pretty much CAS.  I love white space and find myself using white card bases a lot, with a pop of color here and there.  You can find me over on my blog, Soapbox Creations.  A big thank you to Tracey for the invitation to spend the month of February with this amazingly talented group of ladies!  


Hi! I am a Canadian living in the lovely state of Washington. I'm a mom to 2 fabulous kids and I'm engaged to the most wonderful man! He fully supports my crafting and since his hobby is building an airplane, buying a $6 pad of paper is nothing compared to his shopping list!  I've been crafting forever but signed up for a scrapbooking company in 2001, things changed quickly when I was introduced to Stampin' Up in 2002.   I started a gallery at Splitcoast Stampers in 2005 and my blog in 2007.  I'm a challenge junkie that loves to use colors & patterns in my projects.

Hi There! I'm Shannon K Jaramillo (pronounced Har-a-me-yo) and I live in Southern California. I have always been a crafty person who discovered scrapbooking while my boys were young. I discovered card making and stamping in particular in 2010 and have been making cards ever since! I am an empty nester and spend my spare moments in my crafting room.  The creative process brings me great joy, as does organizing all of my beloved tools, stamps and papers. Oh! and ribbon and embellishments, we mustn’t forget about those! My style has been defining itself over the years until now I find myself tending toward clean and simple/layered/graphic but I do LOVE pretty papers and sparkles!
