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!

Danni Bindel

Hello there crafty friends! My name is Danni Bindel and I am beyond excited to be joining the Inky Paws Challenge Team! I have been doing paper crafts for over 25 years and cardmaking for close to 19 years.

I love stamps and coloring the most but try to keep my passion alive by trying new things in the crafting world! 

On the rare occasion that I'm not in my craft room I enjoy spending time with my family, our pets- two cats, Alyssa who has chosen me as her human and Keke who has NOT chosen me as her human and my daughter's tortoise, Rocket. and I also enjoy reading, going to the zoo, going to the botanical gardens and I am just starting to enjoy starting some flower gardens for the bees, butterflies, etc.

You can find me in the crafty world on all the social platforms under Danni's Dreams and they are listed here: Can't wait to share my creations with you and to see what you all create!


Crystal O. Minkler
Hello crafty friends! My name is Crystal AKA Tawny Owl Paperie. I'm super excited to be joining the Inky Paws Challenge team! I've been an avid cardmaker for over 20 years now. I love to play with paper and make pretty cards! My favorite crafty techniques are ink smooshing and copic coloring. I'm also an avid e-reader and coffee drinker. There's nothing better than listening to a great book while getting inky with my stamps and also enjoying a yummy coffee. I'm a huge fan of Newton's Nook Design and I'm always up for a fun challenge so I can't wait to share inspiration with you for the Inky Paws Challenges. You can visit me over on my blog, my Tawny Owl Paperie FB page, my YouTube channel, or my Instagram

Amy Tollner
Hi everyone! My name is Amy and I am very honored and so excited to be joining Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge Team! I have been making cards for about 5 years now. I really enjoy making bright, fun, and happy cards. I like coloring stamped images with Copic markers, and I love using glitter and glossy accents for finishing touches on my projects! 

When I'm not crafting, I am usually at work taking X-rays, volunteering for our local animal shelter, or hanging out with my family, which includes many adopted pets! 

I love Newton's Nook Designs products and hope to inspire you to join us in the fun of the Inky Paws Challenge!
Claire Lamb
Hello crafters! My name is Claire and I am so happy to join the Inky Paws Challenge Inspiration team! I'm currently living in Columbus, Ohio with my cat, Mr. Darcy. I have been making cards for a little over five years, and I quickly fell in love with stamping and all forms of papercrafting! I also enjoy reading, writing, baking, and spending time crafting with my mom. As a long-time fan of Newton's Nook Designs, I am so excited to be part of the Inky Paws team!
