Design Team

Say hello to the girls who put the "dolls" in The Paper Nest Dolls!


Creative Team Leader

My name is Katja, 43 years old and married with Wilbert. We do have 2 daughters (Sydney 9-4-1998 & Ruby 9-5-2001). We do live in the South-West of The Netherlands (Europe).
I really love to make cards and other paper projects. I color my stamps mostly with Copic Markers but sometimes i pick my Faber Castell Polychromos to color with.
My other hobbies are walking with my dog (Sky, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel), shopping (clothes or craftingstuff ), watching TV-series, going to the movies or theater. And offcourse doing nice things with my family.
My dream is to have a crafting-store some time and do give some workshops. Making my hobby my work.


My name is Annette and I live in Sweden with my husband and our two boys, 20 and 17 years old. Another member of my family is our flatcoated retriever, Kiwa, who is 5 years old. Besides spending time with family and friends I love making cards. So I really hope you can find something here that will inspire you.




Hi my name is June Nelson, I'm 52-years-old and have three grown-up children, I live in Blyth Northumberland in England. I'm a nurse in a hospice, but have been off sick for 5 months, and am awaiting retirement due to ill health, I started cardmaking about 12 years ago after watching Dawn Bibby on QVC UK. I also did a lot of scrapbooking, I have been on a few design teams including Saturated Canary, Marianne Designs, The Stamp Basket and coloured for LOTV. I cant wait to work with this wonderful team of talented ladies.



My name is Hilde, I live in the Netherlands, in a place called Zaandam, that's 15 minutes from Amsterdam.
I have been crafting as long as I remember. I've started making christmas cards for my family and friends with the 3-D technic, but one day I saw the Magnolia Ink Magazine and fell in love with those lovely stamps. And at the same time I go to workshops to learn the colour technics. I love the shabby and vintage style.
But I don't do only Magnolia stamps, there are a lot of other beautiful stamps and digi's.
Such as for example Saturated Canary, New Besties, Ppinkydolls and now the Papernest dolls from Christine Paperdoll.
I am new at the DT-team and I am honored to be part of it, it's such a great group with all talented ladies.
Three years ago, I finally had enough confidence to start my own blog. I learned so much from many paper crafters around the world; those beautiful creations truly inspire me. I hope my art work can inspire you too!



My name is Patti Lane but my crafting name is Shabby Pink Stamper.  My favorite style is Shabby Chic, my favorite color is pink and I love stamps!  The Lord blessed me with 7 children and 13 grandchildren.  I’ve been married for almost 18 years to a man that encourages all my crafting endeavors.  I teach a Bible study, a class for Hurting women and do Biblical guidance so when time allows, I find it therapeutic to play in my craft room.   I love girly feminine stamps.  I enjoy mixing my love for coloring stamps and digital images with paper crafting. 

My name is Jill Hansen and I'm 38 years old. I live in Norway in a small place called Nannestad with my lovely family. In this blog I will share all my creations with you and hopefully you will find some inspiration.

Hi my name's Jane , i live just outside Bournemouth in the uk. I have 4 children , 3 boys and 1 girl. I love to be creative and spend all my spare time at my table , colouring images to make wonderful things with. I like to make cards but i also like to make things that are 3d. I think i have come along way since my 1st ever card , which is well over 10 years ago now. 


I’m a stay home mom to 3 wonderful very busy and active children. My beautiful daughter is 17 my handsome boy is 15 and is taller than me and his sister, and my little wild child boy who is 7 going on 17. 
I have always loved crafting, from sewing in Jr. high to scrapbooking after my daughter was born, I even do woodworking.
I have found my love of coloring with copic markers and making cards, I am also copic certified. I still do all the other things I love sewing, baking, paper crafts, when I find the time between going to volleyball, football, and basketball games. 
I believe a gift made by hand is the best gift you can receive.

Hi. I am Lene, I am 37 years, married and have three adorable children.
I made my very first card in the beginning of 2000. But then I left it and came back to it in 2010.
I love to make cards, and I love to color with copics. I was so honoured when Christine asked me to be a part of the DT for a couple of months. I really have come to love these stamps. They are so much fun to color, and so incredibly cute.
I hope you will like what I create. And I would of course be so happy if you would stop by my blog.
My name is Martha, I'm from Alberta, Canada, I'm married to the love of my life who is very supportive of my very expensive hobby! I have two beautiful babies my son Sebastian and my daughter Trinity. I have dabbled in scrapbooking/card making since I was about sixteen, but I really got serious about it after I had my daughter 15wks early, she was such a miracle that I wanted to document her journey thru the Neo Natal Intensive Care Unit. After that I started making very simple cards that would take me hours to make, but the look of pure joy that people give you after receiving a handmade card is worth every second! I bought my first four copics after stumbling upon a beginners copic coloring class while I was shopping at my local scrapbook store....and the rest is as they say history! So I hope you enjoy my creations and pop on by my blog for a visit.
