Meet our Amazing Designers!

Amy Tsuruta

So thrilled to be a part of the Evelin T Designs team! I started ‘seriously’ crafting in 2003. For some reason I signed up to be my son’s Co-op Preschool Scrapbook Coordinator. At that point, I hadn’t even scrapbooked yet. I’m happy to say that we still have that scrapbook. I started my Splitcoaststampers Gallery in 2005. I remember seeing blogs and became curious about them. I started mine in 2007. I didn’t start my IG account until April 2015. I was holding out because I didn’t think I could swing the time commitment. I still feel that way but try my best in keeping up with everything. I feel so fortunate to be a part of this awesome papercrafting community.

Annette Allen

Hi, my name is Annette Allen and my blog is My Clever Creations. I am so excited to be designing for Evelin T Designs, I have been a long time fan of Evelin and I am thrilled to be a part of her new adventure. I have been crafting since 1997, which seems so long ago now. I got introduced into the craft world when my husband was deployed and I was invited to a Stampin Up party. I have not looked back since. I dabble a little in almost everything but my true love is card making. I am just a crafter at heart. I am a stay at home wife and have been married for 24 years. Life is good. Thank you for having me and I cant wait to share my creations with you all.

Emily Leiphart

I’m so honoured and excited to be joining the design team at Evelin T Designs! I’m married and have a very energetic and creative 11-year-old son who loves to perform. I enjoy drinking coffee and red wine, practicing yoga, curling up with a good book and online shopping. My favourite paper crafting projects are greeting cards, folded note cards and treat packaging. I’ve been a huge fan of Evelin’s illustrations for years and was so delighted when she launched her own stamp company. I look forward to sharing loads of fun cards and videos with you!

Heather Hoffman

Hello - my name is Heather Hoffman and I blog at Houses Built of Cards (if you are curious about the name of my blog, check out the whole story on the “about me” page on my blog). I am a wife to my hardworking husband Michael, mother to two BEAUTIFUL daughters that I also homeschool, and am blessed with lots of family and friends that I love and adore. I absolutely love playing with ink, paper, and stamps – and all the other things that go along with that! The crafty world is such a wonderful community of people, and I am so incredibly happy to be able to do what I do every single day. I’m delighted to be helping my beautiful friend Evelin launch her new company – I’ve always adored her sweet and whimsical style of illustrating for some of my other favorite companies, and I know she is going to be amazing as she starts on her own!

Kelly Griglione

Hi! I'm Kelly, mom of two boys (11 and 15) and wife to my childhood sweetheart. We met in orchestra, and he asked me out on the bus ride home from the Math Team Competition. No joke!
In my free time, I love hanging out with my friends, jumping in the pit at a rock concert (especially Green Day or Twenty One Pilots), practicing with the manual settings on my camera, trying out new restaurants, and going on adventures in the different neighborhoods in Chicago. In the Spring and Summer you'll find me on a baseball field watching our sons play.
Like many of us, crafting has always been a large part of my life. I have such fond memories of time spent with my Grandma at her kitchen table learning every type of craft imaginable. What a great legacy to leave... I think of Gram every time I sit down to craft! You can find me blogging about paper crafts, mostly cards, at Notable Nest.
