Samantha Mann 
Designer & Design Team Coordinator
Hi, I'm Samantha Mann and I couldn't be happier to continue for another term with Newton's Nook Designs!! My husband and I have lived all over the US, from Washington State to Florida, but we're currently in hot, humid, coastal South Carolina! We have two boys (who I usually call my little Menn, even if they're not-so-little anymore)! I have always been in love with school supplies (ever since elementary school when I would save my nickels to buy cute pencils or erasers!) and that love just grew and developed into my crazy obsession (read: passion!) of paper crafting! I love making cards and even dabble with the occasional scrapbook layout! You can always find me with some inky fingers and lots of ink blending! I'm definitely quirky, and love to make playful, humorous sentiments for my cards (and layouts)! I work full time for an advertising company and spend every other moment I can paper crafting, reading and enjoying the little moments in everyday family life.

Crafty Ellen

Hello, I’m Ellen and I live a little further from the USA; I come from Belgium with my husband Davey.

I've always been artsy and even studied art. In my current job I don’t do anything creative and that’s why I really like to paint, draw and of course create cards in my free time. Even till Davey gets nuts of it haha! As a big Newton’s Nook Designs fan, I'm so blessed and happy to be a part of this awesome team for another term! I’m so curious what the next release will look like, so bring it on!

Zsofia Molnar 
safsafdesign

Hello! My name is Zsofia Molnar and I am a card maker from Hungary. I am thrilled to join this amazing Design Team. I live in beautiful Budapest with my 2 kids (9 and 6 years old) and the most loving husband ever. We are a truly trilingual family as my husband is Egyptian and we communicate with each other in English. I started paper crafting more or less 6 years ago when I was fascinated by all the pretty scrapbook layouts. I have never even made a single one, but rather fell in love with making cards and sharing handmade kindness with my family and friends. I am an addict since then, I have to be crafty every day to feel good. This is my little escape. I love cute critters, florals and I really enjoy building scenes with layers. I am curious to try new techniques but my favourites are still Copics and Distress inks. You can follow my crafty journey on my blog: www.safsafdesign.wordpress.com or on Instagram @safsafdesign2016.

Maria Russell

Hello stampers and crafters. My name is Maria Russell and I am so THRILLED to be a part of the Newton’s Nook Designs design team.  My husband and I have lived all over the world and we have two talented, beautiful children (now adults).

My love for paper crafting began in high school when my friends and I wrote each other letters, took photos, kept a journal and scrapbooks.  It kind of looked like a smash-book because I had everything in there from ticket stubs, to beautiful napkins, to candy wrapper.  Paper crafting is very therapeutic for me.  I only ventured into card making in 2013 and I am hooked!  I was really honored when one of my cards got published at Scrapbook and Cards magazine, Creative Cards Volume I in 2015.

I am so HAPPY to be a part of this amazing design team!  I’d be honored if you’d like to visit my blog: www.mariarusselldesigns.com


Andrea Shell
Blissfully Scrappy

Hi, NND friends!  My name is Andrea, and I live in the beautiful state of Tennessee.  I'm wife to a wonderful, supportive man and mama to two human babies and two fur babies.  I originally got into papercrafting with scrapbooking, but a few years ago, I fell hard for cardmaking (I still scrapbook because I want to preserve my family's stories, but I spend way more time making cards!).  One of the first stamp companies I discovered when I started this hobby was Newton's Nook Designs.  I just love their adorable, whimsical images!  To be joining their Design Team is truly a dream come true, and I can't wait to share my love for NND with you!

Tatiana Craft and Art

Hello! My name is Tatiana and I’m so excited and honored to be joining the Newton’s Nook Designs DT! I live in sunny Rome with my hubby, stepson and two sweet kitties, Tommy and Lilly.

I always loved everything handmade and crafty related and tried all kinds of hobbies from jewelry making to crocheting until I discovered and felt in love with a magical world of paper crafting. Cardmaking and coloring became my relaxing getaway.

I like getting inky, experimenting, stretching my supplies, learning new techniques and coloring with any medium, especially cat images which I often make look like my kitties.

Amy Tsuruta
Tsuruta Designs

Hey there, my name is Amy and I'm thrilled to be a new designer on the awesome Newton's Nook Designs' team!  I'm a Canadian living in Washington State.  I work part-time for a biotech company and the rest of the time you can usually find me in my craft room drinking coffee and designing cards. I remember being crafty when I was in elementary school but I feel like things really started when I signed up to be my youngest's co-op preschool's Scrapbook Coordinator. Honestly, I had never scrapbooked at that point but I had so much fun managing it and we still have that scrapbook from 19 years ago [wow].  My style has changed so much over the years, these days I'm smitten with pastels but I still love designing with bright and bold colors too.  You can find me on my blog or IG.

Amanda Wilcox
Twiddler's Nook
Hi crafty friends! My name is Amanda and I'm so thrilled to be joining the design team for Newton's Nook. I've been married to my best friend for 13 years, but together for almost 20! We have one daughter who is 13, and three fur babies at home, 2 cats and a pup. 

My day job doesn't have anything creative about it so I really enjoy my time in the craft room. I've been making cards for over 20 years but really took things to another level just in the last few. I look forward to the adventures this amazing opportunity brings! You can follow my crafting journey on my blog at twiddlersnook.blog.

Cards and Coffee Time
Hello crafty friends! My name is Tina and I am so happy to meet you here at Newton's Nook. Happy dance alert!! I am super excited to be part of this Incredible and Talented Design Team. I am a wife, married to the love of my life. I am also a mother of three children super creative and wonderful kids that more often than not drive me crazy but keep me young at heart My passion is baking and creating anything papercraft:) My first memory of creating was in grade school, they handed out glue, scissors and construction paper, I knew it would turn into a love. Same goes with baking, in fact the hubby and I own a Bakery & Cafe in Oklahoma. My online paper crafting journey started a few years ago and now, with the help of staff, I am able to break away from work early and create until my hearts content. That's when I started my Blog & YouTube Channel called Cards and Coffee Time. Be it a cupcake or a card, creating something that is handmade and to give it with someone with love, makes me happy. I encourage you to do what you love and to love what you do!! I am honored to be part of the Newton's Nook Design Team and can't wait to create for you all! Crafty Hugs!
