We are THRILLED to have expanded our design team! There are now 21 amazing designers here to inspire you with LDRS Creative products. Let's meet them!
First up is Stephanie - our fearless design team leader!
I’m Stephanie, a sweet French Canadian crafter that loves to stamp and do crafty things! My favorite coloring medium is Copic markers, because of the depth that you can achieve in two shakes! I have been coloring for 7 years now, but always have been dabbling into painting, photography, drawing, and writing. I’m very easy peasy and LOVE trying new things. In fact, I was doing mixed media when learning acrylics painting before even knowing it was going to be called, years later, mixed media!
Hi, I am Ilina Crouse. I live in Atlanta, GA with my wonderful husband of 13 years and our 3 little monkeys: Anna-6, Milena-5 and Jason-3. As you can see I have my hands full. During the day I work as Electrical Engineer/Bid Manager for Siemens. I know doesn’t sound fun at all, but it is (at least for me), as it involves creativity, but different kind of one. Early in the morning (or lunch break or after work – depending on the weather ;)) I am a runner( I love long distance runs and it’s a way to burn off some stress everyday life brings) and at night I am crafter.
I have been making cards since I was a little child and still lived in Macedonia (South Eastern Europe) where supplies were limited so I had to get really creative. I love simple and clean designs and I love to experiment with different techniques and coloring mediums. I am honored (and excited beyond words) to join the LDRS Creative Design Team and I hope to inspire you with my creations.
Hi! I’m Lynnea - wife, mom, crafter! I’ve been making cards since I was 13 years old! I live in Scranton, PA with my husband and son. My style has changed quite a bit in the last 17 years or so - but I’ve finally settled into “me”! I love to create clean and simple cards with a flair! Watercolor is my favorite crafty item! And you better believe I’ll add sparkle to my cards one way or another! I have a 6 year old son who loves to craft with me. Most of the time when I stamp I stamp doubles so he can color, too! I hope you love what I make and get some inspiration!
I'm Corinne and I use Copic Markers. I have been coloring about 5 years now. I love doing mixed media projects as well as making cards and scrapbooking.
I'm Mindy and I live in Gilbert, Arizona, with my husband and our 3 amazing kiddos. I graduated from Arizona State University with my Bachelor's degree in Fine Art Painting while working as a retail manager to pay my way through art school. While going to school I fell in love with Bollywood movies, Bollywood dancing, and tribal Bellydance. I started taking classes and eventually became a member of a Bollywood dance competition team. I was so honored to have the opportunity to perform across the country with my dance troupe Boom Boom Bollywood. This love for other cultures and dance had a huge impact on me, and shows up many times in my art. After having my kiddos I became a stay at home Mom. In between taking care of my kids, I started crafting, cardmaking, and scrapbooking as a creative outlet, and also to record all those precious memories. I have always been creative, and love expressing myself through vibrant color choices. I love to use Copic Markers, Distress Inks, and Watercolors in my artwork. I also love teaching others, and helping them become more confident in their own artistic expressions. I am so honored to be a part of such an amazing and talented team. Making art brings me so much joy, and truly inspires my creativity!
I'm Maria and I'm happily married to a great guy (Richard) and we have two amazing children (Dominic & Jessica), with fur baby cat, Phoebe. I've always been a fan of DIY projects and I love decorating my home. I’ve always loved scrapbooking and started this hobby since high school. However, five years ago, I ventured onto card-making! I am so fortunate to be a part of some AMAZING design teams and have gotten to know a lot of really great people!

Hi! I’m Annie, a wife, mom, and scientist who loves holidays, pretty paper, and gifts for no reason. I’ve never met a coloring medium I didn’t love, but I’ve been coloring with Copic markers for about 8 years and would say they’re probably a favorite of mine. Primarily a cardmaker, I dabble in mixed media and home décor from time to time as well.

Hi there, my name is Samantha and I was introduced to card making in 2015 and I haven’t looked back. My hobby grew from working at the kitchen table to carving out a dedicated craft space in my bedroom. My go to colouring medium is my alcohol markers, but I also enjoy water colouring and pencil crayons. By far my biggest thrill in card making is the magic of masking and what it can achieve. Beyond thrilled to work with LDRS creative team. Happy crafting everyone!
My name is Monica Zerpa, I’m awife and mother of two daughters 8 and 6 years old. Originally from tropical Venezuela, I moved with my husband to frigid Canada almost 20years ago. I have been crafting since a young age, being introduced by my elementary school teachers where I started paper crafts with a focus on parchment work (pergamino), a few forms of fibre art and stained glass, among many others. As an adult, I started scrapbooking but quickly went back to my cardmaking roots and I haven’t stopped since. To me, crafting is my time to disconnect and relax and it has become and helpful tool to manage anxiety. You can find me on social media @needleandpaper (IG, Pinterest, FB), and I am overjoyed to be a part of this amazing team!

Hi my name is Lisa and I live in sunny South Florida and I am known as “mom” to three wonderful children and three fur babies. I am also a Registered Nurse in a NICU where I take care of the most precious babies on Earth. I have been a paper crafter for over 20 years and I enjoy all types of DIY projects.

Hi there! I’m Erica, and I’m a self-confessed craft-a-holic. I’ve always been creative in one way or another, for as long as I can remember. Sewing, wood working, metal working, painting, stitching and embroidery etc etc. The list goes on. My biggest love, however, is card making, and it has been for years now. I started with a Christmas card kit some 13+ years ago and it was a slippery slope from there on. I love colouring and seeing projects come to life in front of me, it speaks to my soul on a deep level. If I didn’t have a crafty outlet, I’m 100% sure I’d go nuts. Or nuttieras some people would say...

Crafting allows me to explore my creative side whilst helping me to unwind after a busy day. I’ve been crafting for about 4 years and love colouring with alcohol markers and making ink blended backgrounds. I specialize in cardmaking but also enjoy creating scrapbook layouts and 3d projects. My style is bold and bright with plenty of shine and sparkle!! I’m pleased to be joining the LRDS Creative Team which is new and exciting experience for me.
