Jackie Randolph - Senior Digital Designer
Hi, I am Jackie, I live in Northern Kentucky with my husband and a 11 year old grandson we are blessed to be raising. I am a mother and friend to my four grown children and a busy grandma with my six grandsons. About four years ago, I put my scrap booking on the back burner and turned my focus to card making and altered crafts, then about two years ago I discovered digital images and became addicted immediately . I simply love the ease and versatility digital images provides.I loved being inspired by so many artists, I am in awe of all the talent out in blog land and I love to go blog hopping for inspiration. I am excited to be joining the Whimsy Digital design team and look forward to creating with all the fabulous digital images you can find in the store.

Marilyn Scheller - Digital Designer/Magazine Staff Designer
I am thrilled beyond thrilled to be a part of the Whimsy DT!

My name is Marilyn and I live on a farm in Saskatchewan, Canada and work full time as a municipal administrator.  I’ve been married forever to my very supportive husband and we have two grown wonderful children, three of the most precious grandchildren ever and a barky, yappy little dog named Roo  who believes he is a giant!

I’ve been making cards for about 2 years now and began a blog in September of 2009.  The bug hit me when I went to a Stampin Up card making party where we stamped with coloured ink onto cardstock but before long before I started surfing the net where I found coloured pencils (which I promptly purchased) and from there it progressed to Copic markers (which I promptly purchased) and from there I started my obsession, purchasing rubber and digi stamps, paper, cardstock, flowers, ribbon, charms, Nestabilities, Cuttlebug, punches, brads... you know the rest, I need it all!

Shannah Bartle -Digital Designer/Magazine Staff Designer
“Hi! I'm Shannah and I live in the beautiful Hills region of South Australia. My wonderful hubby is a Police Officer, and we have one cat (ie demanding fur-baby) called Poppy. I love traveling, photography, talking and reading, and am happy as long as I'm learning something! I dabbled with simple cards for a few years, but fell in love when I picked up my first Copic last year. It's been a slippery... expensive... but oh so fun... slope since then lol! I am very excited, happy and completely honored to be on the Whimsy Design Team - thank you Denise and Debbie for this wonderful opportunity, I'm loving every minute of it! :)”

Michelle Oatman- Digital Designer
Howdy from South Texas! My name is Michelle Oatman; many know me as "MichelleO"
or the Donkey Smiles lady. I have been very happily married for over 25 years to my
best friend who is supportive of my obsession of crafting. We live in the country where
we raise Miniature Donkeys, Dwarf Nigerian Goats and Toy Australian Shepherds. They
are all my children, and are all spoiled rotten.
My crafting goes back to my childhood, days spent with my Grandma and then as I
grew up watching my Dad, a professional graphic artist. I dreamt of the day I could
own my own grown-up markers. That may be why I adore my Copics so much.
Summer of 2010 I lost my right eye to an accident. It has taught me a lot about myself,
and the people around me. The support from everyone, both close to me and across
blogging land, has made me a stronger person. And while learning to deal with my
new vision I have learned to appreciate my crafting even more.
I am blessed in so many ways - my husband, my family and friends. The life I live on
the farm with so many animals. And to have found a hobby that give me so much

Sarah McLaughlin- Digital Designer

Hi, my name is Sarah (known as rainmac online) and I live in the UK with my husband, 2 young sons and my cat Ben. I have been crafting for quite a few years now. I started with cross stitching in 2001 and soon progressed onto paper crafting. I love patterned paper and have a huge stash of it in all sizes and colours. Some of it I just can’t bring myself to actually use ;-) I feel very privileged to be a member of the Whimsy Stamps Digi DT. I love getting to play with all the new stamps before anyone else!

Carly Wilson- Digital Designer

I’m a 36 year old Mum to a gorgeous girl named Madalyn, and married to Steve.  We live in Victoria, Australia.
I have been paper crafting for almost a year now and am totally addicted to it.  I also cross stitch, crochet, knit and
try just about every craft as I’m totally in love with hand made things.
I love colouring as it is so creative and relaxing ... but I must admit I do struggle to put a card together.  It is so much
fun getting inspiration and advice from others in the blogging/crafting world.  What a big happy family we are Smile

I'm just 45, mum of 2, step mum of 2 grown ups and soon to be grandma of 2. I live near Hull in the UK with my husband my daughter and our cat. When I'm not sticking and glueing you will either find me stitching, reading or supporting the British touring cars. I'm also partial to a bit of football and an action film or two so I wouldn't really consider myself to be anything approaching girly although I do have a liking for handbags.

Suzi Mckenzie- Digital Designer
I'm Suzi McKenzie, I'm 30 something and live in Aberdeen, Scotland with my adorable hubby Stewart and our 3 cats.  I've been colouring images since i could hold a crayon, and it's one of my favourite things to do.  I love papercrafting as it gives me the opportunity to be creative, and share my interests with others.  I started card making when i was preparing for my wedding, and could not find stationary i liked.  I've been card making ever since, I discovered craft blogs and forums soon after, and have been lucky enough to make lots of crafty friends all over the world.  My style is fairly simple, a little weird and wacky, and i love to use bright vibrant colours. You can find all my weird and wacky creations at The Manic World of Mrs McKenzie

Jackie Smith- Digital Designer
Hi Everyone, my name is Jacqueline Smith and I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I work full time as a horticulturist and work with my Dad who operates an Interior Plant Maintenance firm. I’m a single mom with a 17 year old son named Cameron. We have adorable yellow lab named Sarah and a Ball Python named Snappy (not my idea of a pet).
 I'm  a stampaholic as well,  and discovered rubber stamping/ scrapbooking 12 years ago when my son was quite young, thru Cathie Allan, who had this amazing rubber stamp store. I was so impressed with her cards that I wanted to duplicate them and I thought I could save some money in the long run by doing them myself. Ha!! I love the creative outlet it has given me to make cards or to scrapbook the perfect photo.

I put my heart into every detail of the cards I create, which varies from unique cards that have a simplicity to the, to more elaborate cards that are engaging and detailed. My cards are unique with emphasis on the exquisite detail for every occasion and no two cards are exactly alike.
I'm really honoured and very excited to be asked to join the Whimsy Stamps Design Team and look forward to meeting all the talented designers.
