Justine Hovey:
My name is Justine and I am currently living in Thunder Bay, Canada. I am an elementary school teacher and crafty YouTuber. Over the years, I have been blessed to design for many of the top stamping companies in the industry. I love the crafting community and everything it has to offer. I have met so many great friends along the way and I love every minute of my crafty life!
Kari VanNoy:
Hi! I’ve been crafting for as long as I can remember, but it has only been the last 9 years that I absolutely fell in love with card making. I craft and teach others card making skills in sunny Arizona. I love to see the look of wonder on others faces when they finally “get” heat embossing or ink blending or a new skill. I have been a guest designer for multiple companies. I’m is married with 3 kids and 2 granddaughters! I lives in Mesa, Arizona with my supportive husband and sweet dog. After my oldest son moved out, I converted the large bedroom into my DREAM CRAFT ROOM, where I continue to create and be inspired every day!
Niki Coursey: 
Hey y’all! I’m Niki, the chicky behind Cardstoq.com. I love a good crafty challenge – creating cards from inspiration photos and projects, or designing my own card layouts with just a few supplies. My favorite techniques are ink blending, coloring, and emboss resist. I moved to sunny San Antonio, TX in 2008 and married my husband in 2010. I have two stepkiddos – one is a sailor in the U.S. Navy and the other is a budding musician. On the weekends, you’ll find me in the backyard with my laptop and my planner, reading up the latest crafty trends and soaking up some inspiration for new projects. I’m excited to be able to share and exchange craft ideas with you!
Laurel Beard:
Hi! My name is Laurel. I am a Christian, wife and mother of two! I am short, love to laugh, like breakfast for dinner and I am huge fan of the Harry Potter series. I am afraid of heights but am married to a pilot.  I am primarily a card maker but every now and then I get daring and create something else.  I serve on a number of design teams and absolutely adore this industry.  I would define myself as a very clean and simple designer.  My tag line is Simply Cardmaking. I focus on the simplicity of card making using simple techniques that anyone can do!
Betz Golden:
I am a paper crafter  that sometimes dabbles in mixed media. I have been crafting for over 30 years. My grandma was an artist. She painted with oil paint and held classes every afternoon in which I would attend. I kept a scrapbook my entire childhood before pretty pattern Paper was around. My background is in education. I left the classroom to be a full time stay at home parent, but discovered s short time later that I needed something else to do to keep my mind busy and soul warm, so I started a kennel in which I bred Golden Retrievers as service dogs. Through it all I never stopped crafting. In 2015 I decided to chase my passion and become a full time creator. I have three dogs, a tank full of salt water fish and three teenagers. In addition to crafting I enjoy traveling, reading (historical sci-fi are my favorite followed by a close second — mystery) and cooking. I am so excited to be part of the Hedgehog community! 
Kaja:
My name is Kaja and I’m from small european country called Slovenia. You may know me by the name Kajcyika crafts that I use in the cardmaking world. I started making cards few years ago when I started my university studies. I didn’t think that few packs of patterned paper which I bought that one day three years ago, will change my life! I must say, I was hooked instantly and now I can’t imagine my life without it. My favorite thing to do is coloring and I could be in my craftroom just stamping, coloring and then die-cutting for hours. 
Lynnea Hollendonner:
Hi! I’m Lynnea! I am a 28 year old wife, mom, and card maker! My husband and I have a beautiful toddler boy. Life took us on a crazy ride to start our family, but I wouldn’t change it. He LOVES to craft with me and we often make “fusion” projects together! My craft room is open to him for the most part (no penblades yet!) and he gets as excited as I do when crafty packages arrive! I have been making cards for 15 years! My style gravitates towards clean and simple and usually includes watercolor! It’s my favorite medium to work with! In addition to crafting and other daily duties (haha!) I am a waitress at Applebee’s! My craft space is my safe place where I go to let the creative ideas in my head roam free!
I know you will give them all a warm welcome and I hope you found some new inspiration looking through their blogs
Happy Stamping
Alexandra & The Prickle
