Introducing... Kate Bolt

Hello there.... Welcome to Inspire.Create.Challenges!

Over the next 10 days I will be introducing the 10 fabulous Design Team Members, before our first challenge goes live on the 20th September 2017!



Hi, My name is Kate. I’m married to Jim and have three lovely children. One of whom is shortly flying the nest to go to university. We are blessed to live in the Buckinghamshire countryside right near a beautiful lake where our dog loves to be walked. I am a registered neonatal nurse but my creative outlet and now full time passion is papercraft. I have been crafting for years, starting out as a scrapbooker, dabbling in various other crafts along the way such as crochet and quilting but have always come back to paper craft which is my passion. I love all things  colour and ink and have a weakness for stationery! Since joining Stampin Up in 2016 it has become a huge part of my life, I love it and I am building a team of my own.  I hold weekly Coffee and Cards, teach classes, hold crops and retreat days as well as posting regularly on my blog and You Tube channel. I hope to inspire others to create !

Kate's creations can be found ... http://www.inkstampshare.ink/

Introducing... Nature Gibner

Hello there.... Welcome to Inspire.Create.Challenges!

Over the next 10 days I will be introducing the 10 fabulous Design Team Members, before our first challenge goes live on the 20th September 2017!



Hi! My name is Nature. I am a Canadian Stampin' Up! demonstrator, currently residing in Thornhill, Ontario. I am mom to an active, happy, curious little boy who was stamping before he could walk (seriously). I have worked as a Child & Youth Counsellor at a local hospital for the past 11 years.

I am an avid papercrafter and have been since I was a little girl. I was first introduced to Stampin' Up! at a Christmas card making class in 2015.

After my maternity leave I went back to work 2 days a week and was looking for a way to generate supplemental income and help support our family while at home. That’s when I made the decision to become a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. I could share my love of crafting with others while helping to support my family. Win win!

My favourite parts of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator are being able to use my creativity while building a business and hearing how much others love and appreciate receiving a handmade card. It's a fun way to make a difference!

Introducing... Sarah-Jane Rae

Hello there.... Welcome to Inspire.Create.Challenges!

Over the next 10 days I will be introducing the 10 fabulous Design Team Members, before our first challenge goes live on the 20th September 2017!


I'm a mum of three, wife of one and passionate papercrafter! I regularly design for Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine, have a blog and I also run cardmaking classes in Southampton/the New Forest. I have always been a crafty person but what I love about cardmaking is that you can create a whole card in a short amount of time (mostly!). They are also mini works of art that are achievable for just about everyone with just a little inspiration! My other hobbies include thrifting for vintage bargains, diy, travel and I also enjoy a little sewing, here and there, although I don't have too much spare much time for much more ;-)  I am really looking forward to designing for Inspire, Create Challenges as I often find a "theme" helps get the creative juices flowing. I hope you enjoy the challenges too!

Introducing... Denita Wright-Smee

Hello there.... Welcome to Inspire.Create.Challenges!

Over the next 10 days I will be introducing the 10 fabulous Design Team Members, before our first challenge goes live on the 20th September 2017!

I was invited to a Stampin' Up! Workshop in September 2011.  Karen Farquhar, who is my Upline, said to me 'You will love it!' Yes, Karen was right; I loved the Workshop (I still have the card we made that night) and 6 months later I joined and I am now an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

My family are my biggest supporters and our boys; Harrison and Finnlay, love to get busy stamping and punching with cardstock too. And my very patient and gorgeous husband, Andrew, is my Number 1 fan! 
I am a Registered Nurse (by day) and a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator when I make the time. I have always loved to create and Stampin' Up! has given me the opportunity to get crafty and it has become my therapy of sorts. 
I have beautiful customers, and I can call them my friends. I have made lifelong friends through Stampin' Up! and I am truly grateful I went to Karen's Workshop.

Introducing... Britney Vanderlaan

Hello there.... Welcome to Inspire.Create.Challenges!

Over the next 10 days I will be introducing the 10 fabulous Design Team Members, before our first challenge goes live on the 20th September 2017!

I'm Britney Vanderlaan. I'm an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator as well as a drum and sound tech. I'm a night owl and enjoy creating in the evening. I live in North Carolina, USA but was born and raised in Florida. 

My favorite current Stampin' Up! color is Berry Burst from the In-Colors 2017-2019. My favorite retired color is Coastal Cabana! I prefer standing while crafting. I enjoy sipping Sweet Tea while creating and having music play in the background.

Introducing... Liz Yuille

Hello there.... Welcome to Inspire.Create.Challenges!

Over the next 10 days I will be introducing the 10 fabulous Design Team Members, before our first challenge goes live on the 20th September 2017!

Hi, I'm Liz Yuille from Old Stables Crafts. Looking at the company I am in here, I've not been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator for very long, but have been a crafter for more years than I care to remember. I can be found on YouTube most days, but if you are after slick, professional looking videos, don't come and find me, because that just isn't my style, organised chaos is a bit nearer the mark! You can find me at Oldstablescrafts.co.uk, YouTube.com/c/lizyuille and across most social media. 

I live down a muddy lane in Oxfordshire with my husband and our three cats. I used to have a really serious job in London, until I realised that life playing with paper and ink was much more my style. I hope you enjoy the inspiration you find here and look forward to seeing your projects.

Introducing.... Anna Sposato

Hello there.... Welcome to Inspire.Create.Challenges!

Over the next 10 days I will be introducing the 10 fabulous Design Team Members, before our first challenge goes live on the 20th September 2017!



Hi my name is Anna. I’m 44 years old and I live smack dab in the middle of Germany On my day job I sew and sell bags and accessories for kids and babies.
I’ve always been an crafter with a love for all things paper and fabric. Two years ago while searching for new creative outlets I stumbled over Stampin’ Up! and it didn’t take long to get me hooked after my first order. I first joined as a hobby demo but soon decided to share my creations and love for the products and build a business. So far it’s been an amazing experience and a great decision as I have found an great and lovely team of fellow crafters.  I'm really excited to be on the Inspire. Create. team and look forward seeing all the wonderful creations.
