I have been designing for over 20 years and I love every bit of it. I am an ovarian cancer survivor, this year I am celebrating 6 years of being cancer free! It is my mission to encourage women everywhere to go every year for their doctor visits. Early detection is the key. Being a child of God has given me hope. All of this gets wrapped up in my design work. My desire is for others to catch a glimpse of my Savior. There is hope!

Debbie Olson
Design Team Member since March 2008

Debbie lives in the pristine Upper Peninsula of Michigan with her husband, who is incredibly tolerant of her many creative pursuits, and their fabulous twelve-year-old son. She was introduced to rubber stamping in late 2000 and immediately loved being able to use her graphic design background on "mini canvases." The obsession blossomed when Debbie started a paper crafting blog in September 2006. She has been blessed since then to work for several major paper crafting companies, never lacking in an abundance of raw materials for creativity. She enjoys card making, primarily, but has fun with mini albums and altered art on occasion as well. When she is not creating, blogging, or teaching Copic classes, Debbie is home schooling; it makes for a full and interesting life!

Michele Kovak
Design Team Member since May 2009

I often feel like I lead two lives,  by day I am a 5th grade teacher, mother, and wife of 20 years to my high school sweetheart,  and by night I am a crafting ninja! I started crafting almost 18 years ago after the birth of my daughter, Cortney.  She was born with severe mental and physical impairments.  This hobby became a way to deal with my feelings at that time,  and my way of focusing on the things my daughter could do. By the time my son, Kyle was born two years later, I was completely hooked.  And as with many hobbies, one thing, led to a million other things, and I quickly branched out.  I now create cards, scrapbook pages, wall art, altered projects…..and anything else that I can get my hands on. I have had so many wonderful opportunities in this industry and am truly blessed to work for some amazing companies.  I started as a designer with JustRite in May of 2009.  I had taken 3rd place in the JustRite Championship contest and shortly after became part of this incredible design team! You may also see my projects in the pages of Northridge’s Cricut magazine. I am fortunate enough to design projects for them using my Cricut, and often I will sneak in my favorite JustRite stamps!

Kathy Jones
Design Team Member since June 2009

My name is Kathy and I live in beautiful Brisbane, Australia with my husband Matthew and children Zachary, Benjamin and Alyssa.  The children are currently all in Primary School, so as you can imagine, life is never dull!  I have tried many types of crafts over the years such as cross stitch, knitting, candlewicking, beading and stenciling and also have a love of photography, however it wasn’t until I was introduced to cardmaking back in 2006 that my love of all things paper really took off.  In 2008, I took the leap and created my blog, Inspired to Stamp, never imagining that it would lead me to work with various companies and working alongside some amazing women who share the passion of papercraft.  I found JustRite stamps in 2008 after hunting high and low for them in Australia and loved creating projects with them, so you can imagine how excited I was to be asked to join the Design Team in June 2009 as their first International Designer!  Just when I thought it couldn’t get better, I was trained as a Copic Instructor for Australia North-East in 2010 and just love to colour and share these skills in classes I teach!  Some people may have seen my creations in Australian Simply Cards as well as Australian Cardmaking, Stamping and Papercraft magazines and I enjoy sharing new products and styles through the print media.  Over the years I’ve continued to grow as a cardmaker, exploring new styles and techniques and developing my own style and feel truly blessed to be a part of this wonderful team and the wider stamping community as a whole – papercrafters are the most wonderful people ever!

Angela Barkhouse
Design Team Member since January 2010

I live in the beautiful western mountains of Maine. I have been married to my husband Mike for 16 years. We have two daughters – Heather, 24 and Emily, 13, a Jack Russell terrier named Zoe and 2 cats – Coco and Emma. I have always done some form of crafting thanks to the inspiration of my mom and grandmother.  I began scrapbooking shortly after our youngest daughter was born.  I am a scrapbooker at heart but after I was introduced to stamping and JustRite Stamps in 2008, I was transformed into a card maker as well! I love taking a simple piece of paper and transforming it into a work of art for my friends and family to enjoy. My papercrafting projects can be found on my pinterest board or at Splitcoaststampers.com by searching for “agbark”.

My “real” job is Secretary to the Selectmen in my hometown. I really enjoy my job as each day brings a new adventure. I have been a lifelong resident making each day seem like a gathering of friends instead of work.  Other than papercrafting, in my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family on our boat or walking the beautiful beaches of Maine.

Eva Dobilas
Design Team Member since November 2011

I have been crafting in some form since my early twenties when I first found Michael’s after coming to the US.  I fell in love with creating immediately and started decorating T-shirts, which I sold at craft fairs.  Somehow a few stamps came home with me the same time and I created Christmas cards, which once again I sold at craft fairs.  I found scrapbooking in 1997 and started working on my son’s album.  Fast forward a couple of years and a friend introduced me to Stampin Up, and the rest really IS history.  I took tons of classes that involved stamping, mixed media in the early 2000’s and I loved creating.  I found my passion!  The past few years I have been so fortunate that I have designed for several stamp, paper and flower manufacturers, which has given a huge joy to me.  I feel very lucky to create with JustRite Papercrafts stamps and work along with such talented designers.  I have been published in a few magazines, such as the Cards magazine, Cardmaker and Scrap and Stamp Arts Magazine.

When I am not working in the real estate industry, working as a life coach or crafting, I love reading spiritual, business and life related books and enjoy photographing nature and people.

I live in Southern California, although I lived in a Florida for a short time, and New Jersey for 3 years.  I am originally from Hungary, but Southern California is one of my favorite places to live.  I have a wonderful husband, who has been very supportive in all my endeavors and critiques every single creation of mine and loves all my work.  I have a 23 years old son, who is my joy and love watching how his life unfolds in front of my eyes.  He is still in college, studying hard and working with me in my real estate business. I currently design for JustRite Papercrafts, Authentique Paper, Petaloo and enjoy occasional guest designing for other manufacturers.

Design Team Member since February 2012

I do not remember a time when I wasn’t dreaming or creating as I grew up. I have ventured into all sorts of craft mediums from quilting, doll making, photography and more. I was introduced to paper crafting through a local stamp store in 2004 and haven’t looked back! I love it when a card comes together from the image in my mind. A proud mom of three adult children, I live in a small town in Upstate New York where I create my works of art. I’m so excited to be a part of JustRite Papercrafts! It’s a dream come true!

Sheri Holt
JustRite Design Team Member and Friday Challenge Host March 2012

I live in Oklahoma with a blended family of 4 grown boys. I play lots of video games with the family and sing in a band on occasion with my husband.  I started crafting in 2009 as a quiet outlet for my busy life and spend most of my free time in my craft room or perusing the web for new products and inspiration.  This led me to JustRite and I have been using their products and entering every challenge since April 2010.  I can’t get enough of new crafting supplies and fear that one day I will be featured on one of those hoarding shows, but until then, I will continue to fill my space with as many supplies possible!  I am very lucky to have a family that supports my hobbies!

Kristi Schurr
Design Team Member since July 2013

I currently reside in Georgia with my husband of 19 years and our teenage daughter. We also have an adult son who is 26 and on his own. We were an active duty military family for the first 15 years of our marriage and lived around the country during that time. I first started stamping after purchasing a foam stamp set sometime in the early 90’s. I then was introduced to scrap booking by a friend around 1995. My love for stamping reemerged after my daughter was born and I’ve been in love with card making ever since! I discovered JustRite Stamps back around 2003 when I bought a monogram stamp set at a stamp show to make some note cards for friends. Since that time, JustRite has been a staple in my card making!  

My card making has evolved dramatically over the years and I’ve been fortunate to be able to have my own craft room to create and hoard supplies! My current must haves are beautiful stamps from JustRite Papercraft, quality card stock and adhesives, ribbons, trims and my beloved Spellbinder die collection!
When I’m not in my craft room, I can usually be found spending time with my family, cooking, reading, enjoying music and movies. I’m also interested in decorating, photography and gardening.
