Hello. My name is Corina Finley. I live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada, with my husband Curtis and our two sons, Tyler and Colten. I love to work with a variety of media but my true passion is Paper Arts which I have been enjoying for as long as I can remember. Creating and sharing my love for paper arts brings me much satisfaction and, I believe, reflects in the unique projects that I create. With paper arts constantly changing and growing, I try to stay current, to continually learn new techniques, and to push my creative style and ability each day. To be asked to join the Cheery Lynn design team is an honour! I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with such great products and am very excited to share my creations! I hope you join me on my creative journey and remember … Live, Laugh and Create!

I am Leslierahye, wife of 21 years to my soul mate. Mother to two amazing free-willed beings--son Will, 13, and daughter Samantha, 7. Daughter of devoted, loving parents. I've been crafting and creating since before I can remember, dabbling in everything from sewing, to oil painting, to scrapbooking, to photography to beadwork to crafty crafts--and many things in between. I've gifted my work. I've sold my work. I've used my work. I love to share projects and techniques with crafters of all skills. I continue to explore in creativity to keep myself fresh. I love mixed media and upcycled crafting. I love making my own embellishments to coordinate with my projects. While I am not new to creating with die cuts, I am somewhat new to Cheery Lynn Designs. As soon as I was introduced to the system of Floral Shoppe dies and Build a Flower dies, I was hooked! I love the look of flowers on my projects and I LOVE LOVE the idea of creating my own flowers--Cheery Lynn's flower dies are amazing and so easy to use in every facet of my art.

Rhonda Van Ginkel
Greetings from Minnesota! My name is Rhonda Van Ginkel and I live in the beautiful Twin Cities. Some may associate that with snow, mosquitos, ScrapFest and the Mall of America and you would all be correct! I am blessed to be a wife to my husband Chuck for seven years. We have two beautiful and busy little boys ages four and five. Fortunately, my guys and our dog Radar usually provide crafty inspiration 24x7. I've been paper crafting now for a little over four years and love every single thing about the creative process! I adore Cheery Lynn Designs and am beyond excited to be a part of this amazing team.
I am excited to be working with Cheery Lynn Designs and the fabulous women of the design team. I think we will have great things in store for you. I have been a crafter of some sort all my life but did not start stamping/card making until the summer of 2005. I teach scenic stamping and Copic classes in Mid-Michigan as well as online classes at My Creative Classroom. This summer, I discovered Cheery Lynn Designs' dies and embossing plates and knew I wanted to work with them so I am truly blessed to be a part of the design team.

Hi, I'm Alison, and I was so thrilled and very honoured to be asked to join the extremely talented Cheery Lynn Dies Design Team! Its a wonderful opportunity to work with some amazing designers and products, I feel so lucky. Now, I have never been bored in my life ever! From a very early age I was always 'up to something crafty', sewing clothes for my dolls, drawing, painting, knitting, tapestry, making jewellery and learning to make anything for myself that I could. I got into card-making about 9 years ago, and like to try lots of different styles. I think essentially I am quite girly and feminine and very much a 'more is more' kind of gal. I love making my own flowers, adding stitching on my cards and my absolute favourite is playing about with dies. I can spend hours on one project, as its not about a race to the finish, its about how you get there and what you learn along the way for me. I love visiting other crafters blogs as they are an unlimited source of inspiration and beauty.
Hi my name is Amy Voorthuis and I’m 35 years old. I live in The Netherlands with the love of my life Jeroen and our handsome son Kevin (8). We got married on the 20th of April 2012 after being together for 12 years. I’ve been scrapbooking for over 9 years now and I love it. I got introduced with scrapbooking by my aunt Ellen who lives in the sunny state Florida…..I think she did an awesome job because I’m hooked for life. I'm in my third year of study to get my degree for practicing measurements for the eyes (optician) I love to be creative in every way I can, seeing my job as an optician I need to be kind off creative anyways…..fixing all those glasses ;-) My style is eehhmm well I like to think it’s a romantic style don’t really know how to call it. I love to try everything “new” I like. I adore to use handmade flowers, dies, metal art and designed chipboard pieces on my projects. Scrapbooking is such a nice way to keep your (pictured) memories well organized while having a blast at the same time. I didn’t think I would love to make cards as much as I do now, because I’m a scrap booker at heart. But Cheery Lynn Designs has amazing products to work with on cards so I might be hooked on cards now too lol
Diet Pepsi provides me with late night superpowers so that I can succumb to my paper crafting addiction after a day spent as a partner, mom, grandmother and slave to my menagerie of animals. At my house, where even the dogs get cat hair on them, animal fur is a condiment and everyone is subject to starring in my scrapbook layouts, I look forward to retreating to my craft room at the end of the day to spend time re-fueling my soul by creating with pretty papers and glue and die cuts too of course! I can't begin to express how thrilled I am to be part of such an exciting and diverse team at Cheery Lynn Designs and feel so honored to have a chance to help inspire you to create beautiful cards and paper projects with the fabulous dies available at Cheery Lynn Designs!

My name is Bonnie Brown. I live in Howell MI. I have been married for 36 years; have 3 married sons and 12 grandchildren. I began scrapbooking in 1999. In 2001, I ventured to the dark side and began to rubber stamp. I discovered I really enjoyed stamping. Today I spend more time designing cards than scrapbooking. Guess I found my true crafting love!! I became Copic Certified Instructor in 2008. A friend talked me into trying Copics. I have to admit that this is my absolute favorite coloring medium. My husband and I are avid campers or RV'ers. We love the open road!! Other time is spent with my grandchildren, 8 of who live in Michigan and 4 in Montana.

Hi! I'm Debbie Sherman from the Cowboy State, big beautiful Wyoming! I'm so excited to be part of the Cheery Lynn Design Team! When I'm not scrap booking I am a road designer, photographer, wife, mother, grandmother of 6, auntie and friend. I have been crafting since I was a little girl. I started out sewing and making jewelry around the age of 7 and have been creating ever since. I still bead and sew but now it's mostly on my paper projects. I love photography and sometimes get that "great shot" that all photographers live for! I am fortunate enough to have a press pass and am able to shoot big events occasionally. The city I live in has a yearly old west celebration called the"Daddy of 'em all" and I'm fortunate enough to attend the big rodeo's, Native Americans and several other events in town. With my press pass I have front row seating for these events which allows for some awesome photos. With all the photos I take it gives me the perfect reason to scrap them! I'm hoping to share some of those with all of you! I'm so excited to be part of this wonderful team and hope to inspire and be inspired along the way.

"I've been crafting for 4½ years, I started off scrapbooking, using my dog as my subject and then moved onto cardmaking and decoupage as most people do, and eventually got into stamping. I am quite the collector of rubber stamps, papers, dies, punches ....basically anything craft related. I also design papers for crafting, and have been doing that for 4½ years as well. My style of cardmaking is similar to scrapbooking, in that I love to fill the front with lots to look at, as in flowers, ribbon, embellishments, you name it, I love to stick it on the front of my card. I don't do clean and simple very well, as the card looks bare to me. I've been using Cheery Lynn dies since I first discovered them in the spring, and I love all the intricate details that are on the dies, and I love adding one or more to my cards. I'm originally from Canada and moved to England back in the summer of 1999.......and I still miss the hot summers of Saskatchewan. I'm married to a wonderful understanding man, who lets me indulge in this expensive hobby of mine, and will often come up with ideas for me, and if it requires measuring weird angles, etc........he's the one to help me out. We have four wonderful grandchildren and a super intelligent Jack Russell named Kody."

I have always loved everything vintage - and that has really influenced my work. Even as a little girl, I collected beaded purses and antique clothes, and had boxes of old photos and ephemera. And yeah, this was all by the time I was 9 years old. So I guess I was that quirky kid that everyone just kind of thought marched to her own drum. That early sense of style lead to someone who has a passion to create, who is confident in her own designs, but who also appreciates the historic influences of the past. I have been crafting all of my life, in one form or another. I was a very successful bead artist. I had my work published in over a dozen books and magazines, and lectured and taught all over the country, but...my beaded pieces took 500-1000 hours to complete. About 10 years ago, I started scrapbooking, when my first nephew was born. I instantly fell in love with the immediacy of the medium (compared to the crazy hours I spent beading!) In the past several years, I have really gotten serious with the craft and love finding new ways to take my pieces to the next level. It's really funny to look at any of my work, from bead work to paper and to be able to see the same style emerge, regardless of the medium. I have always loved dimension, and color and layers. Paper crafting is really a family thing for me. My sister and I used to get together once a week to craft, but now she has moved right next door, so it's one big paper party! I can't leave out that my five year old nephew thinks it's really cool to scrapbook with his aunt and mommy! My husband doesn't ever craft with me, but he is my biggest cheerleader, and is always supportive of what I do. We have been married for a little over two years. We have a fairytale romance - we knew each other in high school and were friends, but went over 20 years without any contact, and reconnected on Facebook and quickly knew we were meant to be together. I work as a dental hygienist, so creating with paper is always a welcomed release! I absolutely love Cheery Lynn Designs - they have such an elegant style, and cut even the most intricate dies beautifully. I am thrilled to be able to share some of my creations that I've made with them.

My name is IRIT and I am from sunny ISRAEL. In my "real life" I am a dentist, but for the last 4 years I do it as a part time job, because I need some extra time for my scrapping and crafting addiction and I have a lot of fun doing something else after 25 years of dentistry. I have been married for 28 years to a retired high police officer, who is the full time family cook these days. I am a mom to 4 grown ups: 2 sons and twin daughters. The empty nest is probably the main reason for my obsession for crafting - finally I have some time for myself. My oldest son is an army officer, married and will be a dad in about 8 weeks. The second one is " a world traveler" - for the last 4 years after his army service he is out of Israel for at least 9 months a year- lives and works in Spain. My twins are in their second year of college and my major scrapbooking inspiration. I need to say that I have been totally addicted to crafting since I was a little girl. For many years it was a polymer clay and jewelry making, but after I saw a scrapbook layout for the first time in my life (only 5 years ago during my visit to USA), I finally understood that I am in love with paper. Today I mostly scrap and do altered art and less card making. I have been a design team member in about 9-10 challenge blogs and was a guest designer on lots of others during the last year, but now I decided to do some real design work and don't take any challenge blogs DT spots anymore. Right now I am a permanent designer for UK chipboard company named Tando creative, for an Australian shop named Scrap with V and a staff member on SNR web magazine. I was published in print in Israel several times and was published in every possible web magazine during the last year. Last, but not least- my other addiction is..... folk dancing. So if I am not in my crafting room- I am probably dancing. I am totally thrilled to be a part of this great DT here and hope to do my best.

I am so excited to be part of Cheery Lynn Designs. I am looking forward to creating some fun things to inspire! Who am I? Well, I am Jeannie, I am a mom of 7 kids, ranging from 19 down to 3 years. Yes they are all mine...same mom, same dad. 22 years of marriage and we are still working together, making it up as we go along. With as many kids as I have, crafting has become a form of therapy for me. I have to say, I enjoy all crafts, but paper is my passion. Cards, scrapping, home decor? If it can be done with paper, I am up for the challenge. I love it all. If I had to describe my style, I would say that I am a whimsical paper artist. I have been a fan of Mary Engelbreit since before she was born. Well not really but, I have loved her FOREVER. My hope is to inspire people to find their own style. Everyone has one, they just have to tap into it. “I CAN’T” should never be in anyone's vocabulary when it comes to creating. I hope you enjoy the projects I will create and share.

Hi everyone, my name is Joann and I live in Nova Scotia, Canada. I am married and have one son who is in The Royal Canadian Navy and is currently stationed in Victoria, British Columbia. I am also lucky to have a very supportive husband who understands and supports my passion for anything paper and glue! In addition, we have a cat named Squeaker who tends to drink water with her paw and insists on having fresh ice water! I think she is a little spoiled... She also has a weakness for ice cream but that is another story. I work full-time but when I am not at my day job you can find me in my craft room. As much as I enjoy card marking, I must admit that my "obsession" is with dimensional projects. I like to think “outside the box”. I also have a big weakness for paper. Every time I go into a store I see more paper that I do not have and I am running out of room to store everything. I have already converted one room in my house into my scrapbooking studio and am now eying the next room. I am so thrilled and excited to be a joining the talented ladies on the Cheery Lynn Design Team.

I am a dedicated, fun-loving country girl with two boys ages18 and 22, and an amazing husband. I am very blessed that they are extremely supportive of my hobby. I am the shy, quiet type...most of the time :) I am a weird mix of girly girl and tom boy. Pedicures are awesome, but I'm not afraid to dip my pretty toes in a puddle or two! Pretty much, I am just the girl next door. During the day I tend to seven precious small children by operating a daycare business in my home. Some of my other interests include gardening, reading, and browsing through antique shops for inspiration.I love vintage!

My name is Kianel and i am almost 40. I am living in France now, in a town called Orléans and famous for Joan of Arc (where she was born), situated in the Loire valley where you can find many beautiful castles and famous wines! I started scrapping in 2008 and I am more of a cardmaker. I can scrap and make LO's too but just loooove to make cards and different boxes! My style is shabby / vintage I guess. I am part of different DT and work for the Magnolia ink magazine and I am now very proud to join the terrific Cheery Lynn Designs DT!!! Voilà,This is going to be so much fun!!! And I beg you to forgive my coming mistakes in English...
Love from France, Kianel.
