CARISSA - Returning from 2011 DT

I am thrilled and excited to start another term as a design team member for the amazing Pumpkin Spice Blog.

I am a mother of two adorable kiddos (baby #3 due at the end of April) and a wife to a wonderful husband. I work part-time as a nurse at a busy metro hospital. When I'm not busy being a mommy and a nurse, I spend time reading and getting caught up in Netflix movies. My family loves to travel and spend time together, so there is alway an adventure on the horizon.

I have been a paper crafter for years, but got my fire rekindled last year when I got a Cricut for Christmas. I've been crazy crafting ever since. I have a passion for my Cricut, Cuttlebug and all my stamps. I adore beautiful paper and embellishments. My favorite things to craft are home decor, mini albums, and cards. I love learning new techniques and being inspired by others.  

May all your paper crafting dreams come true.

Hi! My name is Courtney Lee and I have had the incredible privilege of being sponsored by Pumpkin Spice! I approached them because they had the best prices, the best shipping rates, and incredibly great customer service! I am proud to say that I represent Pumpkin Spice and am looking forward to being on the Design Team! I design for Imaginisce, My Pink Stamper, and have been a guest designer for My Mind's Eye and showcased on Echo Park, so Pumpkin Spice has everything I need!

I live with my husband Hans in San Francisco, CA with our Yorkie named Spoon. She is my constant crafty companion! I am excited about this new adventure and am really looking forward to it!



I am married to my wonderful Husband, Who is also my best friend and greatest support.   We live on the Central Coast in CA. I am an exhibiting Artist, the mediums I use are watercolor, acrylic, and sometimes I get crazy and use mixed media.  I serve on the board of Directors of our local Art League; we are a non-profit organization, and a vital part of our art community.  I have always loved art, and as a child, this is what I wanted to do.  I'm very thankful for everyday, and I look at each day as an opportunity to create, share, and show kindness.  On Jan 1, 2011, I started my blog DL.ART and it has opened a whole new direction of art for me, my medium has included the use paper and glue a lot. We will see what 2012 has to offer.

JUNE - Returning from 2011 DT

I am a work-at-home mom to two beautiful 9yo fraternal twin girls, both of whom are diagnosed with Autism.  I have been married to my college sweetheart, Doug, for over 20 years.  We also have a 21yo cat named Skeeziks, who is the sweetest furry girl.  I am an avid card-maker with a paper addiction.  If there were a show on paper crafting hoarders, I would probably be on it :)  I am also very frugal; I want to get the newest and hottest paper collections, but at a reasonable price.  That's why I Shop Pumpkin Spice!

Hi there I'm Lenae! I live in Washington State with my fiancée and my black lab fur baby Kalani. I got started in paper crafting about 5 plus years ago when I was invited to a card party. I lost my job about 3 years ago when the company I worked for went out of business. Before I lost my job I mainly made cards for the troops, but once I was jobless I had so much extra time I needed to expand my horizons. I started really getting into 3D design. Last October for my birthday I received a Cricut from my mom, which opened up all kinds of new ideas and avenues. This is when everything exploded for me in the crafting community. I started my blog just a few months after that and haven't looked back! I love designing cards, treat goodies and 3d projects! Most of my projects always come with either a free SVG file and/or tutorial. Crafting has really changed my life. After going through many losses in my family over the last few years I started using my crafting as a form of therapy. It really helped me get through some tough times. I have met some of the nicest, kindest giving people I have ever met in the crafting community! I am so blessed to have all of you in my life! I am also blessed to have a fiancée that supports my addiction.... I mean hobby!  



Hi, My name is Lezlye Lauterbach, I live in Northern California in the Sierra Nevada Foothills. I have been married for 25 years to Jim who is very supportive of my obsession, anything to do with paper crafting! I have three children,one girl two boys ages 22, 19, 18. I have an adorable Yorkie Daizy who will soon be 4!

I have been paper crafting for about 20 years, it's the one hobby that has stuck! I love my electronic cutting machines and use them everyday. I try to post new creations on my blog on a regular basis. I am excited for this new partnership with Shop Pumpkin Spice, to meet new friends and have fun! Paper Crafters are the best!

Luv Scrapping Together

My name is Saundra. I am a wife, homeschool mom, and avid papercrafter. I began papercrafting a little over 3 years ago after I bought my electronic cutting machine. At first I had thought to only use it for bulletin boards and such for my classroom. I was teaching in a private school back then. As I began searching for information I discovered the world of blogging. There is so much inspiration to be had! I love making cards and have tried my hand at scrapbooking and making home decor projects. Besides papercrafting I love spending time with my family and am striving to get fit. That's my 2012 resolution!! I look forward to serving on the Shop Pumpkin Spice design team and hope to inspire you in some small way.
