Introducing the Mint Motif Design Team

Charlene Austin

Charlene Austin: Willow and Paisley

Charlene Austin lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with her husband Mike and 2 little dogs, Willow and Paisley (which her blog is named after). She's been paper crafting since November 2006 and in that time has made some wonderful friends and discovered just how important card making is in her life.

She works part time in the insurance industry. During her free time (is there ever really enough free time?) she loves creating cards and is always looking for inspiration in her surroundings. She has a passion for submitting to publication calls and tries to include a touch of uniqueness to each project she creates.

Geny Cassady

Geny Cassady: Madison Avenue

Geny discovered her love of paper crafting in college, roughly 10 years ago. Stamping is her favorite medium, she loves to make hand stamped backgrounds and combine stamps in fun, unexpected ways. She has served on the design team for Papertrey Ink and currently works with My Time Made Easy, in addition to Mint Motif. Look for her work from time to time in the pages of Cards and Paper Crafts magazines.
Geny is married to a very understanding husband ;) who encourages her crafting in every way. She also has two little boys which keep her very busy. She lives in the beauty of Northern California and finds inspiration in her surroundings everyday.

Julie Overby

Julie Overby: Mini Moments

Julie Overby and has been happily married to the love of her life for 15 years. Together they have three beautiful children (and one big ol’ puppy) that are often the source of her inspiration! For over 13 years, paper crafting has been one of her greatest hobbies. Only in the last few years has it become a daily passion. Her creativity is also expressed through her love for photography and keyboarding. She has been blessed to be a part of several manufacturer design teams and her work can be seen in Scrapbook Trends Magazine, CARDS magazine, and several Memory Makers books.

Latisha Yoast

Latisha Yoast: Busy Little Craftee Bee

Latisha Yoast was born and raised in a small town in Northern California. Around 11 years ago, her husband joined the Navy (he is a Helicopter Pilot) and they have had the opportunity to live in some fabulous towns and cities in this wonderful country. Her two children, ages 14 and 9 years, keep her very busy. However, in her spare time you will find her creating, something. Paper crafting is a passion, and she is constantly amazed at where she finds her inspiration.

Kazan Clark

Kazan Clark: Nunu Toolies

Kazan is originally from Pretoria, South Africa but now her family calls Denver, Colorado home. Although she enjoys all forms of crafting, scrapbooking and card making seem to dominate her time and passions right now. She is fortunate to have been published in various magazines both here in the United States and overseas and she thoroughly enjoys a challenge where she can both inspire and expand her own crafting horizons.

Kazan said, “This is going to be one exciting ride as we embark on the maiden voyage of Mint Motif Design and I am more than thrilled to be part of it and to share my designs with all of you. Thank you
Kimberly :)”

Each of these women amaze me. Not only are they amazingly talented paper crafters, but they are women to admire outside of the card making world. I could never express my thanks to each of them for joining me on this adventure. They will inspire you in so many ways. I hope that you will follow their blogs, I do. Everyone has a project on their blog today, a sneak peek of the upcoming sets that will be released on May 14th at iheartpapers.com!!

AND from all of the comments left on each of their blogs, I will be drawing a name and giving away one of each of the very first sets-Very Square and Very Square Sentiments!! :)

For my sneak peek project, scroll down to the next post. thanks for stopping by!
