Sue T. 
Hi, I am Sue T. - yes that is what everyone calls me. I have been stamping since 1996. It truly became an obsession when a stamp store opened 5 minutes from my house. I love making cards. There isn’t a holiday that I don’t send them out. I have dabbled in just about every style over the years, but have found my niche with CAS cards.

I have worked in several stamp stores, had my own business teaching paper crafts and designed for challenge sites and stamp companies. I love to share my knowledge and creativity.

In the real world, I am a FT endoscopy nurse and very close to completing my Master’s in nursing education. I have a wonderful husband who is my best cheerleader and critic. My muse in my studio is my sweet kitty, Pinkie.

I love whimsical stamps, especially those cute little critter stamps. That’s why I am so excited to be part of the Inky Paws challenge for Newton’s Nook!!

Becky Noelle 
Hi! I'm Becky and I'm super excited to be here! I'm a stay-at-home mom to two little princesses and wife to a big kid. We live in Virginia and I sneak away upstairs to my studio during naptime, whenever the girls are watching a movie, and as soon as they go to bed. I'm a cardmaker, Project Lifer, and general practitioner of crafty pursuits. I can't seem to stop fussy cutting all of the things and I love to color. I'm a lover of Star Wars, Marvel, Disney, the Wizarding World, kindness, and sarcasm. You can find me at my blog or over on instagram as beckynoelle I can't wait to start sharing my projects with you!

Returning... three amazing Designers! 

We  are also happy to announce that these three fantastic designers will be continuing on the team! We know you've been enjoying their work so far and we can't wait to see what they create next! 

Debbie Owens 
Inky Paws Challenge Lead
Hi, my name is Debbie, aka Indy. I live in Washington with my hubby and two fur babies--Catapult and Velcro. I have several passions in life--cats, card making, clay ornaments, coffee, chocolate, and camping! I began card making back in 2010 and reached out to the Internet for inspiration and ideas! In 2013, I discovered Newton's Nook Designs and completely fell in love with Newton and his gang of whimsical friends, so I am thrilled to be part of the Inky Paws Challenge team!
Emily Lauritzen

Papercrafting has been a huge part of my life for quite some time now, but a few years back I shifted my focus from scrapbooking to cards. I just loved the excitement and joy I saw in my loved ones when they received a handmade card and I wanted to share that feeling with the rest of the world.

My card style is ever changing but the basis stays the same-use the products I love and create what makes me happy. I love to put together a striking colorful background and add some simple layers to build the card up.

My husband and I live in gorgeous Seattle, WA with our 3 kitties-Storm, Cloud, and Ezio. They certainly put a smile on both me and my husbands face and our lives wouldn't be complete without them! 

I am beyond excited to be a part of this grand new adventure on the inspiration team here at Newton's Nook!!
Diane Morales

Hello Newton’s Nook fans I’m Diane Morales. My motto is “do what you love and share it with others”.

I live in the Historic City of San Juan Capistrano, Ca with my Husband and the tribe of three cats. 

Like most, I started in scrapbooking and moved into full time cardmaking about 2 years ago. I love cardmaking! Although, am quite fond of shaped cards and hand painting, I can an honestly say I do not have a defined style. (I like to try all kind of techniques)

I first fell in love with Newton’s Nook when I was looking for a stamp set that best reflect how my cats acted.  “Newton’s Antics” was my first set, and it has been LOVE ever since. When I am not “procraftinating” you can find me with a cup of coffee, cooking, or gardening. You can find me on Instagram as  2. sistersproject   #dianeiscrafty

Hope you are excited to see what everyone creates! We definitely are excited for this new team!! 

See you next week!
