NEW Design Team Members: REVEAL

Today, I wanted to share with you the newest Design Team Members for the Lawnscaping Challenges! A big THANK YOU to everyone who applied! We were blown away by all the inspiration we saw when reviewing the applications. You all made it VERY hard for us. Everyone who has applied has been personally contacted by Laurel..... If you didn't get an email from me, please email me at laurelbeard at me dot com.

The new team members will make  their debut  beginning in July! We hope you will join us in welcoming them to the Lawnscaping family....



I’m from Gothenburg, Sweden where I live with my husband and our sweet 3-year-old son. I have been doing arts and crafts, sewing, lacemaking, drawing, water color painting, papercrafting etc. for as long as I can remember, so it was no surprise that I chose that path for my career and studied arts and crafts with a focus on textiles for 5 years at Gothenburg university. I have how now been teaching textile crafts and English at Ytterby Highschool (7-9th grade) for 15 years. I LOVE my job but always wish I had more time for papercrafting (-:  I love Lawn Fawn stamps and I am so excited to be part of the talented Lawnscaping design team. 




Hi there!  I'm a 30-something, stay-at-home mom of 3 little ones.  At some point during my eldest daughter's first year, I decided I need a little something for myself - cardmaking was the perfect hobby to dive into!  I love that nap-time is exactly long enough to start and finish at least one project - and when time is precious, that is so gratifying!  I also love to party plan - and good thing since my kids all have their birthdays within the same 10 days :)




I live on Cape Cod, in Massachusetts, with my kitty Mister Harley. I have been papercrafting for over 10 years, and have played multiple roles in the paper craft industry as an independent store manager, designer and teacher. With a degree in graphic design I am also Copic and Ranger certified. I love to show people new and clever ideas to design their cards and projects. When it comes to designing cards, I'm more a quick and simple kind of girl- I realize people are pressed for time and I want them to realize they will have time to create handmade greetings if they want to. I also have a flair for the "artsy-fartsy" where I love to have paint under my nails and skin stained with color washes. I design my projects in the way to inspire, but not intimidate. I am eager to share my creative passions with others and encourage their artistic growth through my site and my classes. I actively teach classes with Copics, Creative Imaginations, Hero Arts, Impression Obsession, Lawn Fawn, Luminarte, Memory Box and Stampotique.
