Meet Our Team
My name is Angela and I live in North East Scotland with my wonderful husband Roddie and our 2 (mostly) great boys Grant and Phillip. My main hobbies include digital scrapbooking, cardmaking, papercraft and photography.
I live in the Historic town of Haddonfield NJ. with my Husband and two sons. I am a paper junkie, I can't help myself ! My paper obsession started when I was just seven. Thanks to my crafty Grandmother who taught me how to recycle old Christmas cards into ornaments and anything else we could think of! I love all things Vintage and Shabby. One of my favorite things to do is embellish everything :) That makes Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts such a great fit for what I do. Deann's Blog
I live in Southeastern Wisconsin. I have been crafting since I can remember. I enjoy counted cross-stitch, scrapbooking, card making, beading, sewing, and just recently have gotten into the altered art/mixed media arena. I have one fur-baby, a cat. I’m so excited to have the opportunity to design for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts! Mary's Blog

I'm from the St. Louis, Missouri area but spent summers as a child at the family farm which is 150 miles south of St. Louis. My family includes a husband, 21 yr old daughter, 16 yr old son, 2 adorable Japanese Chins, 1 crazy maltipoo, 1 sweetheart munchkin cat and 1 devil cat (yes she is the devil). I'm a avid reader and it comes through in my projects. My style is eclectic with art deco, steampunk thrown in the mix. I have been scrapbooking for 15 yrs with the last two focused on cards and mixed media. I love trying out new ideas and Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts are a perfect blend for my crafts. Dianna's Blog
I am a formally trained artist and fancy-pants graphic designer… but really, that doesn’t matter one pip and you don’t care about such boring things. (I don’t blame you.) I am absolutely passionate about making stuff. Whether it’s up-cycling, painting, mixed media, sculpture, or assemblage, I jump in and create with positive, joyful abandon. I create a wide range of items, much of it inspired by make-believe, magic, folklore, fairies, nonsense and nature. My goal as a maker is to meld art and craft, creating well designed accessible art, with enthusiasm and without an ounce of pretention. Hopefully I can encourage others to join in too.

My name is Gloria Stengel and I live in beautiful, southern California. I am a wife of 28 years, the mom of three kids, and the owner of two cats. We are a homeschooling family, having homeschooled two kids all the way to college with the last one is now in homeschooled high school.
I have been hooked on paper crafts all of my life. I have always loved to color, play with paper dolls, and create "projects"! In 1990, I discovered rubber stamping and in 1996, I stumbled across "modern" scrapbooking. I love all aspects of paper crafting: card making, scrapbooking, mini albums, altered art, up-cycling, you name it! I am happiest when I am making a mess! It's the cleaning up part that I don't care for!
My newest passion is designing stamps and other digital paper crafting items. I have several stamp designs currently on the market and I hope to have my own paper line someday!
I have been on a number of design teams over the past few years, including over five years with Graphic 45. I joined Heartfelt Creations (where I am now on the alumni team) and Canvas Corp Brands for 2015, and continue designing for Really Reasonable Ribbon. I started, and take part in, the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Monthly Blog Hop, along with 19 other designers! I also accept various guest design spots from time to time. I am excited to become part of the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Educator Team for 2016!
I have a blog, a Facebook Fan Page, and a YouTube channel in order to share my creative work. Please visit my blog, Scraps of Life: www.gloriascraps.blogspot.com for more inspiration and for links to my other "hang outs."
I am a SAHM of two and I love to play with crafts. I started cross stitching as a kid. Then I managed to get into scrapbooking in high school my senior year. I found cards and copics when my daughter turned one in 2010. I am grateful I get to spend a lot of my free time creating fun cards. Recently my tastes have been leaning towards making mini albums. Coloring has always been something I love to do. I also like to dabble with mixed media, but I am completely a novice in this department and I am loving just trying new things. I plan to start smashing and getting into photo journalism, especially having a newborn around and capturing all the funny faces. I am really excited that I get to create my ideas and share them with anyone willing to take a peek.Shanna's Blog
Hi! I'm Lynne Joncas from Ontario Canada, a married mother of a grown son and daughter,and I'm thrilled at the chance to create with these beautiful products and be a part of such a fabulous group of artists! I've been scrapping since 2007, when I offered to create a little photo book for one of the kids' teachers who was retiring....once I got into the paper and embellishment sections at the craft store, the "little" book blossomed into a full 12 x 12 album and I was hooked! Since then I've developed a love for heritage pages, pet layouts (I have several dogs and cats, have bottle-fed abandoned kittens, and once raised and cared for an orphaned baby squirrel) and of course lots of pages about my family...as well as anything else that may catch my eye. Although layouts are my first love, I'm always inspired by the beautiful cards, home decor projects and other paper crafts I see and love to try new techniques, products and ideas, and the goodies in Gina's store never fail to get my creative juices flowing! I also love cake decorating, art journaling, Christmas crafts, and spending lots of time with friends. Lynne's Blog
My name is Barbara Rankin, and I am so thrilled to be working with Gina's Designs. I am a self-taught paper and mixed media artist, with my early beginnings making cards and gifts for family and friends. I picked up my first rubber stamp in 1995, before the internet had so much inspiration to offer up-and-coming artists. I love to learn, and I love to share what I have learned with others. I love adding dimension to my projects, which is why I love chipboard so very much. Just about everything I make has it in some form or fashion. I am currently on four other design teams, Altered Pages, Sin City Stamps, ColourArte, and House of Cards. I have been published in several paper and e-magazines, as well as a contributing artist in a book. I have also been asked to make samples for display at CHA, as well as being a guest designer for Craftwell USA, Unruly Paper Arts, and Gina's Designs. I am also a writer for the Mixed Media Art Article Writer's Team. I call Memphis, Tennessee, my home, which I share with my wonderful husband of 33 years and two adorable Yorkie sisters, all of whom make my life fabulous. Barbara's Blog
I’m Ginny Nemchak and I live in a sweet little town out in the country with my husband of 22 years and 2 almost grown boys. I am convinced there there is no better living than out on a dirt road….it’s a very blessed life I have. I have been crafting my whole life in some form…but my creative outlet is now focused on paper. I enjoy all types…layouts…mini albums…cards. I have recently discovered a new love for altered art and digital collage. I love all things vintage and shabby chic. Anytime I can add ribbon and flowers and buttons I am a happy girl.
I'm Jess, also known as "The Crafty Goblin". I'm a SAHM and geek-girl extraordinaire living in the Southern tip of Ontario, Canada. I'm a video gamer, board gamer, and lover of all things horror, fantasy and sci-fi (especially goblins). I like making things look lived-in, grungy and old. My focus is mainly on miniatures in Dollhouse 1:12 scale and Wargaming 28mm scale. I build wargaming terrain, dioramas, roomboxes and the like. I enjoy making tutorials and sharing my mess-making pitfalls and accomplishments so you can learn alongside me.
Hi I am Pam Bray, I live just outside Memphis, TN...home of the blues and BBQ. I am married to an amazing man that I don’t have to hide my craft supplies from and that is so awesome!!! I am also a mom of 4 grown kids and grandma to 9 very amazing grandchildren if I must say so myself, we are empty-nester!!! I enjoy all kinds of paper crafts.... alter projects and making cards are my favorite things to do. I recently retired so that gives me more time to create which I truly love to do. I love all styles from Clean and Simple to getting into inks and paints. My favorite thing is learning to use product in creative ways, that out of the box way of thinking you might say. I love Diet Coke and chocolate so they must be close at hand when I am creating. I enjoy traveling and usually take a bit of scrapbooking supplies with me...I can't image not being able to create. I am currently on several amazing teams and over the moon excited to be with Gypsy Soul Lasercuts
