Announcing Our New Team !!

New Design Team Members

Angie Barrs

Hello fellow crafters! My name is Angi and I am so excited to be a designer for Papercraft Star. I live in "Terrific Texas" and I am a mom of two wonderful daughters - Rebekah & Rachel (and our spoiled cat Melodie).
I started scrapbooking about 10 years ago after a friend invited me to a crop night. I've been hooked ever since. f I could, I would sit at my craft table and design for hours. I love everthing crafty and am a big patterned paper and chipboard fanatic. By day, I work as a junior high English teacher. My classroom is full of crafty creations. I've even gotten some of my students to enjoy crafting.
You can see more of my projects at I'm super excited to be a part of this talented team. I can't wait to see all of your submissions for our upcoming challenges.

Kim Duran
"Hello everyone! My name is Kimberly Duran and I’m honored to be part of the Design Team alongside the talented designers at Papercraft Star! Allow me to tell you more about myself and my love for paper and glue. I am a mom of two children – a boy and a girl, and am engaged to be married next year to my best friend who also has two [grown-up] children of his own. Together, we share a happy home - the six of us, plus one spoiled Labradoodle puppy!
I spend most of my free time creating cards and other paper crafts as a hobby to give to my friends and family. They always tease me because I’ve been known to take my craft with me everywhere I go! You can find me crafting in the trailer during our family camping trips, coloring during my lunch break, or reading craft magazines during road trips! I am inspired by vintage papers, linens and lace. Although my style changes from time-to-time, I stay true to my love of the tattered and worn, the shabby and chic.

You can view my designs over at my blog, Paper Loves Glue. I hope you find some inspiration there and share your work here with us at Papercraft Star!"

New Auxiliary Design Team Members

Cecilia Stephens

My name is Cecilia "C" Stephens and I am a wife, attorney and step-mother to a fantastic 15 year old boy named Will. I have been creating cards and scrapbook pages for the last 8 years. I am like many crafters out there trying to juggle work, family, friends, and craft at the same time. I am trying to do it all while maintaining a sense of humor.

My style is pretty straight forward - I would say clean and simple best describes it. I love ribbon and buttons and pretty paper (don’t we all). I love to make layouts, cards, tags and bags and any other fun projects I can come up with along the way. I am open to all techniques and products although I do favor stamping. I hope to share the joy I find in crafting with you.

Jen Cuthbertson

I'm Jennifer and am honored to be a part of the Design Team here at Papercraft Star!! I'm married to my best friend, Glen, and we live in San Francisco with our cat, Yoda. I'm an information security policy writer by day (say that five times fast!) and cardmaker by night. My husband often jokes that he can tell when I've had a rough day at the office when he sees piles of new cards in the craft room! I've been crafty my whole life dabbling in sewing and candle making in the past but really felt a connection when I started stamping and making cards a couple of years ago. My favorite styles are clean and simple and I love vintage graphics of the art deco and mid-century modern styles. I hope that the projects I create as a Design Team member with Papercraft Star will help inspire you to "be crafty" too! Thank you for this wonderful opportunity - I'm so excited about being a part of this fantastic team of crafters! Please feel free to visit my blog to see more of my work (!
