Lindsay Adreon

Hello everyone! My name is Lindsay Adreon. I am 26 years old and live in central Iowa with my husband and our two kiddos who are seven and one. I’ve crafted since I was about 5 years old, and I still can’t believe my Mom let me use a hot glue gun that young! When I had my son and became a SAHM I knew I needed something to do for some “me” time so I started scrapbooking. That turned into stamping and cardmaking fairly quickly, and has been my main hobby/crafty outlet ever since! In December of last year I decided to start my own blog and start sharing my work online as a way to connect with others who share my love of paper crafting. I’m so excited to be a part of the Two Paper Divas design team and share even more with everyone!


Amy Almeida

Hi my name is Amy and I’m super excited to be a DT Member for Two Paper Divas  & working with these amazing designs! I live in beautiful Victoria, B.C. Canada, with my family and dog, Bubbaganoush (Yep, he’s as cute as his name suggests! lol ).  I have been crafting for several years, but it wasn’t until May, 2013 that I discovered the wonderful world of craft challenges and blogging- and I’ve been hooked ever since! I love all things crafty:  Stamping, Paper crafts, Die cuts, embellishments… the list goes on and on. I look forward to getting Crafty with you!


Heather Bolli

My name is Heather and I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada with my husband, and two young kids, a daughter and son. We also have two (tortured with love) cats as well. By day I work in Human Resources and at night I hit the craft desk to flex my creative brain. My primary love is card-making, but I occasionally like to spread my crafty wings and dabble in other projects. I also enjoy watching movies, reading and spending time with the kids.



Katie Brooks

Hiya!  I’m from Edmonds, WA and have a loving husband and a darling 8 year old daughter.  I work a full time HR job and try to manage my MS.

Crafting is my escape from the real world. :)  I have had a love for arts/crafts all of my life, something passed to me by my parents (dad does photography & mom quilts).  I’ve tried so many things, but making cards is my fave as I can easily share it with those I love!  I really enjoy stamping, coloring, using dies, playing challenges and so much more.  It’s so fun to find inspiration and crafty friends from around the world! I am THRILLED to be part of Two Paper Divas team for 2016 and look forward to all the joy it will bring.


Terri Burson

As a child and on into adulthood, I always dabbled in art; sketching, painting, doodling.  Creativity is in my blood in one form or another, with numerous skilled musicians in my family as well as serious artists. As many of you, I started scrapbooking many years ago which led to cardmaking and dipping my toes into DIY and Upcycled projects.  My true love is stamping, although I do have a mild obsession with paper!  I met a couple crafty girls through a mutual love of stamping and we formed Mountain Plains Crafters, two years ago.  I enjoy freelancing and write the occasional craft article and do product reviews.  In 2014, I was the Guest Blogger and Show Photographer for the Craft and Hobby Association Paper Arts trade show.  I love dabbling in photography as well, and occasionally participate in photography events that put my skills to the test.  Currently, I’m also on the design team for May Arts Ribbon, The Ribbon Resource, and DoubleClick Skittles embellishment line through 2016. I occasionally blog for DecoArt and Bella Crafts Quarterly and have guest designed for several stamp companies as well as creating and promoting products for various craft companies, doing affiliate work as well.  Some of my work has been displayed at previous CHA events, most recently at the 2015 Winter Mega Show this past January, for Adornit.  I’m married with a 14 yr old son, am a church pianist/singer and work for an agency that serves children with disabilities.  I’ve got a wicked sense of humor too, so look out!


Tracie Clary

I have been paper crafting for about 7 years and I love all the wonderful people I have met in those 7 years.  I have always loved different crafts such as quilting, painting, knitting, crocheting, etc.  I think I have tried it all.  I am so lucky to be able to share my love of this art with wonderful family and friends.

Gayla O’Dell

Born and raised a Kansas girl but love the beach!  My husband and I head to the ocean as often as we can as I’m getting tired of the cold winters. We love the KU Jayhawks, KC Chiefs and Royals!  Besides sports (and stamping) I love to walk, bake, scuba dive and read.  I have always done all kinds of crafts from crocheting, stained glass to macrame.  I started stamping in 1989 when I lived in California and found Stampa Barbara.  When we moved back to Kansas there weren’t any stamp stores so I joined Stampin’ Up!  That is how Melissa and I met and from there (years later) we started planning the idea of our own stamp line some day!  And here we are……


Martina Nilsson

My name is Martina and I live in the countryside in the south part of Sweden. I work as a web developer and in my sparetime I like to spend time with my family & friends, take care of our home,  our pets (dog and chickens) and of course I love to make cards.  I’ve had a passion for paper, stamps, pencils, crayons and stationery since I was little and have always liked to craft, especially paper craft. When I found scrapbooking and card making, I think it was 2009, I was very happy because it involved everything I liked! I’ve been focusing on making cards because that’s what I like the most.  Most of the time I try to make clean and simple cards. Although I make many different styles of cards they always seems to use few embellishments and end up being a more clean and simple look. I love stamps and it’s always fun to use them in my projects. Since the beginning of 2015 I’ve been a part of the team behind Kortskissen. Kortskissen is a Swedish blog where on a weekly basis I interpret sketches into cards hoping to inspire other crafters!

I’m married to a wonderful man that supports and encourages my creative habits and together we have 7 beautiful children and 12 grandchildren.  I’m passionate about my family and enjoy spending as much time with them as possible.  I’ve been a crafter since my early childhood.  I love to create anything that involves stamping, ink and paper.  I was a Stampin’ UP! demonstrator for 16 years, owned a local retail paper crafting store and own Two Paper Divas along with my good friend and partner, Gayla O’Dell.  We are excited about expanding and growing our company and look forward to sharing our projects and wonderful stamps with you.

    I was introduced to Two Paper by Amy Bagley at her shop in Deepwater, MO. It is called The Craft Lab. I am big fan of Two Paper Divas now having purchased some stamps and receiving several more as Christmas presents(thanks to my hubby). I am eagerf to use them in my scrapbooking and my cards. Hope to see more new designs soon.
