I have been happily married for 32 years, and my husband and I are blessed with two, amazing sons!  We reside in Carthage, North Carolina where we own a beautiful, circa 1870 Farmhouse Bed & Breakfast!  I am a former Court Reporter turned full-time stay at home wife and mommy with a passion for crafting! I have dabbled in just about every type of craft through the years.  In the late 90's I owned my own sewing business making handmade doll clothes and quilts.  It was a very natural progression to move from quilting to paper crafting … the same basic techniques can be applied transitioning fabric to paper!  I began paper craft designing full time in 2005 and find so much joy in inspiring others through my tiny, handmade from the heart treasures!  Paper Sweeties™ LLC has been a dream of mine since the original design concept was developed in 2010.  I launched my line in August 2012 - one of those 'pinch me' moments that life treats us to!  I am excited and honored to share my {sweet} little stamps, dies and goodies with you!

My family and I live in Texas, and I am a former kindergarten teacher turned adoring wife, of 17 years, to BJ and stay-at-home, home school mom to Ezekiel (14), Adina (9), and Kaden (3). When I’m not taking care of or playing with my family, you can find me cooking, baking, gardening, sewing, taking pictures, blogging, and of course, paper crafting. My love for the latter started, over 15 years ago, at a Stampin’ Up workshop; but I have been creating with any and every form of crafting media, that I could get my hands on, since I was old enough to hold a crayon. I’ve been honored to have had a number of published works of art, as well as to get to design for some of my most favorite manufacturers and challenge blogs! I hope that I can inspire you all to get creating.

Hello, dear friends of Paper Sweeties! My name is Karen Letchworth, and I'm happy and blessed to be the newest Design Team Member here at Paper Sweeties. I've been crafting in different ways since I was a very little girl. But nothing can compare to my love for card-making; and Paper Sweeties is the best place to find all things adorable for that purpose. I've been married to my Police Officer hubby, Darren, for over 31 years; and together we've had the privilege and blessing of raising three wonderful children (two married daughters with wonderful husbands, and our "baby boy" who is a Senior in High School this year). I'm a Northern girl who moved out to sunny Las Vegas in 1989, and we now call it our home. I look forward to getting to know you all, and I hope that my creations will inspire you to get LOTS of sweet new products from Paper Sweeties, and I look forward to seeing your creations as well.

I was born in Taiwan, grew up in Brazil and I’ve been living in the US since 2006. I have been married for 12 years and I have two little boys and a Ragdoll (Angel, the cat).

I started rubber stamping in 2004 when a friend invited me to make cards with other ladies. I got addicted right away!

I enjoy making cards, scrapbook layouts and mini-albums! My other hobbies include: photography, drawing, arm-knitting and baking ... just to name a few!

Hi! I am the mother of two very awesome young men. In my "spare" time I am in accounting, but I try not to let that get in the way of my creating. I started scrap booking about 20 years ago when my boys were very young, and I immediately loved it. What's better than creating and getting together with close friends to laugh, snack, cut and glue stuff! I discovered around the time that my boys were teenagers that I already had everything I needed to start making cards ... AND instead of always using boy colors, I could use pretty pinks and ribbons and flowers -- not to mention glitter, oh my! I am so very excited to be here creating alongside Debbie and her troop of so very talented ladies. I think my favorite part of paper crafting is the community of loving and caring people I've met along the way. My favorite crafty saying is "There are no mistakes in paper crafting ... just opportunities to embellish." It's so true!

Hi my name is Lisa, 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 ten years and I enjoy all types of DIY projects. I used to design custom invitations and announcements which led to scrapbooking which ultimately led to card making. My favorite of all is card making and I spend most of my very little spare time creating my “OhSoCute” projects. I first started designing for Debbie years ago in her Shabby Little Tea Room, and I am grateful to her for giving me the opportunity to design with her again! I can’t wait to put my Oh So Cute twist on Debbie’s precious Paper Sweeties line of stamps and dies!

I enjoy sharing my planner layouts each week. I have the privilege of crafting with my mom who also happens to be my best friend. She inspires me everyday and I’m grateful to share all of this with her! I’m so excited to be joining the Planner Team at Paper Sweeties! Thank you Debbie for the opportunity to design with your sweet stamps and such a wonderfully talented group!

I have been stamping for about 10 years. I love all styles ... from Shabby Chic to Clean and Simple to Mixed Media and everything else in between! I love trying new techniques. I am constantly being inspired by all the beautiful creations that I see on Blogs, YouTube and Pinterest. I started blogging so I could share what I learn, and maybe inspire someone else to try this beautiful art of stamping!

I'm very honored to be on the Paper Sweeties' Design Team! I thank Debbie for giving me this wonderful opportunity! My husband and I live in NW Ohio. We have been married for nearly thirty-four years. We have one grown son, Jeremy, and one huge gentle soul of a dog, a German Shepherd named Shadow. I work party time as a nurse at a hospital. In my spare time I love to make cards, scrapbook, read and crochet. In the past I've quilted, cross stitched and painted. My favorite interest is making cards. Isn't it wonderful to make a card made with love and give it to someone? People really do appreciate receiving such a gift! Debbie creates the most adorable stamps. They are truly sweet and precious! I hope I can inspire you to make a card or project using the sweet and wonderful Paper Sweeties stamps!

Hello Paper Sweeties Friends! I live in Cary, NC with my hubby, Dave, an ER RN, our dog, Riley, and cat, Socrates. I have a degree in Psychology. I was a SAHM and now a SAHW. We have a grown son in Chapel Hill, NC and a grown son/daughter-in-law in Edmond, OK. I've always been artsy and crafty since a child. I took painting lessons as a teen. I started scrapbooking in 2000, ventured to card making in 2005 using stickers. In 2009, I found stamping and blogging and have been obsessed ever since! I still do other crafty projects, am an avid amateur photography buff and do some furniture refurbishing for myself. Outside of the crafty world, I'm a HUGE Tar Heels (UNC) fan and New England Patriots fan. I've known Debbie for a couple years since we met online and realized we're practically neighbors! I've been to her beautiful home and her card classes as well as bought a lot of Paper Sweeties and played in the PS challenges. I'm thrilled to now be a part of her Design Team and looking forward to providing some additional sweet inspiration for Paper Sweeties friends!
