Last month we said goodbye to our previous design team, everyone there was so incredibly talented, we will miss them! But don't worry! We have a new team that is just as talented!
We would like to introduce you to our new team! Amber, Courtney, Maria, Tanya, and Ashlea are sure to impress the socks off of you!
Hello, My name is Amber MacMurtry. I am a 30something wife and mother to an amazing, 4 year old CP warrior from Vermont. I have been crafting in some way or another for most of my life, but I began paper crafting in 2001, when my baby sister was born. I began a scrapbook for my stepmother featuring the tiniest member of the family. I was never much of a scrapbooker though, as evidenced by that unfinished scrapbook, still in my stash 16 years later. Sometime around 2008, I decided I would "save some money and make my own Christmas cards." It's fine, I'll wait while you finish laughing. Approximately 8 weeks and hundreds of dollars later, I was hooked and have never looked back. I didn't start out as a stamper, but about 5 years ago, I invested in my first few Alcohol markers, and that was a game changer for me. From that moment on, I have been in love with stamping and coloring cute, fun and interesting images--which means Kindred Stamps fit right into my favorite crafting style! I am thrilled to be on the summer design team and look forward to inspiring you with these amazing Kindred products!

I live in upstate NY and have been crafting my whole life but paper crafting and card making for the last 8 years. My style is clean and simple. I love creating scenes and with as much masking and coloring as possible. I work full time as an auto claims adjuster and have 2 fur babies.

Ashlea is a passionate card maker living in Boston, MA. She mostly designs clean and simple cards with pops of color and fun techniques to add interest. She’s fairly new to the card making community but has had a real passion for paper crafting since before she can remember. When she isn’t crafting you can find her with her two young children, Chloe and Corey. But, they’re probably still crafting ;)

Hello everyone! My name is Maria Russell and I am from Orlando, FL. I have a home in Florida but also have a home overseas which is why I have two design studios. My husband and I are empty-nesters now so we do a lot of traveling, both for work and pleasure. I have been crafting and junk journaling since high school but developed my LOVE for stamps since 2013. I love fun and cheerful designs, especially creating scenes for my card but I also love clean and simple. I love listening to music while I create. I love the paper crafting community and I am so blessed and honored to be a part of a few Design Teams. I am always inspired by other paper crafters and made a lot of good friends along the way. I hope that I will also inspire you to get creative with me.
