International Inspiration Team

Taylor Usry (Social Media Manager)

I've been working for Crafter's Companion for well over two years now, and my role is the Social Media Manager. That means I'm responsible, in the US and the UK, for keeping you informed about our new launches and giving you the sneak peeks from our Design Team to show you exactly what you can make with the new goodies. I also put together competitions and giveaways, giving you the chance to get your hands on fabulous prizes! I post inspiration, hints, tips, and crafty questions across our social media platforms - Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and our blogs. I do all of these things as well for Spectrum Noir! If there's anything you'd like to see more of on these platforms please let me know!

Kendra Wietstock (Design Teams Coordinator)

I work as a full time designer from my home and have been with the Crafter's Companion team since 2012. In addition to designing for various crafting companies over the last 10 years, I have also taught classes in my home and at local scrapbook stores. I love working on all types of crafting projects, but spend most of my time making layouts and cards. I live in Northern Indiana with my high-school sweetheart {and husband} and we have two fabulous teenagers ~ Megan & Matt. Outside of crafting ~ our family loves to travel and I enjoy reading, and spending time with the great band kids at our high school as a marching band mom.

Hi Everyone!  I am married to my best friend & very craft tolerant hubby, Wayne. We have two grown up children, Samantha & Kyle and an adorable little grandson Bradley, who is six.  I have two other “babies”, Ely & Saffie, my gorgeous cats, they are my lovely little companions in my craftroom.I started crafting when Bradley was born and made him a scrapbook. I soon ventured into card making and now I am totally addicted. I enjoy lots of different techniques and will have a dabble at most things. My favourite thing though, is stamping & colouring with my Spectrum Noirs pens and pencils.

Hello to everyone. I have turned into a compulsive card-maker over the last few years. My passions are paper construction projects and coloring. I have been a design team member for some fabulous challenge blogs and have had several guest designer spots for various companies and challenges. It was such an honor to be asked to join the design team for Spectrum Noir.  I love working with the new Spectrum Noir markers and the wonderful Spectrum Noir blendable pencils. Recently I was delighted to be asked to join the Crafter's Companion International Inspiration Design Team.   I am really enjoying working with this very talented team and hope to be able to provide some crafting inspiration.

I live in the UK with my wonderful husband, two daughters and two crazy dogs. My aunt Introduced me to paper crafting way back in 2000 and the rest as they say is history ! I love to make cards but my passion is to create 3D paper boxes, bags etc. In addition to designing for various crafting companies over the last few years, I have also taught classes in my home and at local scrapbook stores. Outside of crafting we love to go on family days, watch movies out or play games together.  I am thrilled to be returning to the Crafter's Companion Team!!!!

I live in the UK and I am a full-time shift-working Mum, married to my lovely Hubby Paul and we have a grown up Son and Daughter.  My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking.  I have been cardmaking since 2006 but have always been crafty with my Nan and Mum teaching me to knit and crochet at a very young age.  I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction.  I have previously been on CC UK Design Team & Demonstrator Teams.

My name is Debbie Seyer and I live just outside St. Louis, Missouri.  I am mom to three beautiful girls and married to my High School sweetheart, Keith, for 24 years.  My paper crafting journey started when our whole family went to Disney World in 1996. I started scrapbooking and finally found a hobby where I could actually complete my projects.   In 2000, a friend invited me to a rubber stamping home workshop and I fell in love with cardmaking.  I am proud to say that I have been published multiple times in paper crafting and scrapbooking magazines.   I love working on Design Teams and have been very blessed to be on some really great teams.  I am very excited to be working with Crafter's Companion!

 I’m Larissa Pittman and I live in a small town in the Texas Hill Country. I’ve been creating all my life in some way or another; however, my passion is for card making.  I love anything and everything to do with the Art world and trying new mediums. I’m so excited to be a part of Crafters Companions International Inspiration Team.  I hold a degree in Graphic Design as well as a State of Texas Certification as an E.M.T. and Nail Technician.  I’ve am married and have grown daughter and 2 furbabies. When not in my studio creating, I enjoy spending quality time with my husband, daughter, family and friends. I also love cooking and baking from scratch and watching a little TV.

I was introduced to paper crafts about 15 years ago by my first teacher (and now best friend).  I dabbled for a while and became hopelessly addicted after I retired.  I enjoy submitting items for publication, and have been lucky to have many selected.  I’ve been blogging for several years now, and am known in Blog Land as Patti J.  When we travel, we always work in time to meet my crafty friends.  I am blessed with a wonderful husband of 42 years, who indulges my creative time, and just spoils me rotten. We live in Farmington, Missouri and have two grown children who live with their families in New Mexico and Germany.  We have one granddaughter, a grandson due very soon and another grandbaby on the way.  I feel that each day is a gift from God, and try to “Cherish Each Precious Day”.  I don’t really have a set-in-stone ‘style’, so be prepared for cute, serious, fluffy, 3-d, altered items, etc.  I’m excited to be designing for Crafter’s Companion, and can’t wait to make some new crafty friends! 

My name is Roxanne and I reside in Illinois. I'm a stay-at-home mom to two boys, three cats, and a puppy, with my own photography business, so that means I generally work weekends and evenings during the beautiful months here near Chicago! I enjoy movies (comedy and horror are my favs), Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday ever, baking, coffee, Harry Potter, and just being creative. I had started scrapbooking long ago and have since moved to more card making and mini albums as I don't have nearly as much crafting time as I'd love. I am proud to be a part of the Crafter's Companion Design Team, and am thrilled to be able to make wonderful projects with the many, many products they offer. 

My name is Tenia Nelson and I am a 30 something wife, momma, doggie momma, jazz pianist, music teacher, soccer player and paper crafter that lives in the 5280(Denver, CO)! I am married to a wonderful guy named Tim, I am momma to my awesome 2 year old son Thelonious (Theo) and I have two wonderful doggie "kids" Miles and Brillo. I love me some paper, inks, stamps and embellishments.....and just LURVE to create!!! I am so stoked to be a part of such an amazing team and company!

Howdy, y'all! I'm Torrey and I hail from Texas. I'm so proud to be a member of the International Inspiration Team!! I am a die-hard paper crafty chick, and have been creating (professionally) for the last 15 years. My crafting style has been described as being "out in left field" I thought "why not?" and that is what I named my blog---Left Field Studio. I love being considered a maverick crafter! It goes really well with my whole Texas persona! My coloring medium of choice is colored pencil. They're my friends. Let's face it...they're crayons...for grown ups!

Hi everyone! My name is Wendy Price and I'm excited to be joining the Crafters Companion Inspiration team! I have been scrapbooking and stamping for over 12 years now, but I've been doing something "crafty" my entire life. I love the creative out that papercrafting provides!
