Paper Craft Designers
My name is Alice Golden and like so many of the other Therm O Web team members, I’ve loved arts and crafts since I was old enough to hold a crayon. When my second child was born I left the corporate world and started working in the paper crafting industry. Since that time I’ve worked with several manufacturers and have had projects published in all the major crafts magazines as well as appearing in numerous idea books, catalogs, ads, trade show booths, as well as on QVC and HSN. I have also created and taught numerous classes both in the US and internationally. When I’m not busy creating something with paper, I enjoy cooking, gardening, traveling and restoring the circa 1768 farmhouse in Massachusetts where I live with my husband, three teenage sons, a dog and two cats.
Erin Yamabe has been a lover of paper and glue ever since she can remember! She is married and has two sweet and sassy little girls, who are the main subjects of her work. Her days are filled with field trips, room Mom events, spin classes, and taking care of her daughters. And she enjoys having her crafty time in the evenings. Her work can be seen in scrapbooking magazines, at CHA, on Scrapbook Soup, and on QVC UK. She enjoys teaching at her LSS, and is very happy to be designing on the TOW team! Their products are the best around!
My name is Daniela and I live in Dallas, TX. I am married to Peter and we have a little boy, Alex, who is 4 years old. He keeps me busy and my days are filled taking care of him. I have been scrapbooking and stamping for over 10 years. I really enjoy challenges and strive to be innovative. I love recording every day moments, especially now, with my son. I like using a variety of products and techniques to create lasting memories.
Hi everyone! I’m so excited to be here at Therm O Web. I currently live in North Carolina with my two adorable teenage kiddos, a wee hedgehog baby, and our adoptive Golden Retriever pup. I am the web director at a local landscape design and garden center, as well as a part-time writer and photographer. In my spare time, I love to go antiquing and thrifting, read, and of course, play with paper. I have been papercrafting for about a dozen years now. Love learning, and sharing, and I’m so excited to be a part of the Therm O Web Design Team.

Hello from sunny Southern California. My name is Shemaine, and I am a work at home mom to two wonderful kids. I’m lucky to be married to a great guy who gets my wicked obsession for creating with paper and doesn’t mind me leaving a trail of scraps all over our home.
A few things you might not know about me, I love Good & Plenty candy, walks along the strand in Manhattan Beach on Sundays with my family and I’m a crime show junkie to boot! If my dreams of paper and glue forever were to fade, I can always become a profiler with all the knowledge I have gained from my obsessive watching. Music is a must in my life, nothing inspires me more. I’ve been so blessed this year with exciting opportunities and great friendships, life is good.
My name is Rebecca Keppel and I have been scrapbooking in the modern sense of the word since 2005. I have a daughter (age 7), a son (age 5) and a husband who is (for the most part) supportive of my scrapbooking. Although I have been “journaling” and taking tons of pictures my whole life, it wasn’t until I saw scrapbooking as whole that everything clicked for me and the obsession began! Besides recording memories and playing with fun product, I love to learn new techniques and learn more about photography. My favorite way to add texture and dimension to my projects is by sewing because I love the homemade, unique touch it adds. Besides making layouts, I love cardmaking and making gifts for family and friends.
Hi! I Katrina and I live in Midwest USA! I am currently owned by four Cardigan Welsh Corgis, who appear in my layouts from time to time (or A LOT of the time)! I’ve discovered as an adult that I love to create and craft. I was never the artsy type while growing up, unless you count cutting my doll’s hair. I have been scrapbooking since February 2009, when I decided to make a mini album for a friend. I discovered that I loved it! Well, let’s just say after that I went nuts with the paper, scissors, and glue. I love color, the more the better. To define my style is hard, as I do what makes me happy. I like to scrap everyday life and things, you never know what the subject of my project might be!
Juliana grew up in a creative household loving art, design, and making things with her hands. She gives all the credit to her creative mother who loved to paint, sew and draw. Her mother also photographed her daily life and kept all of these photos stored and displayed in photo albums. Nearly 15 years ago she found her true passion in paper crafting and scrapbooking thanks to the combination of being exposed to these creative activities and photographic documentation of her daily life. Since 2008 she has been creating and sharing paper crafting projects on her blog.
She has been a project designer in the paper craft/scrapbook industry since 2007. Juliana has been fortunate to work for many top manufacturers including: BoBunny, Bella Blvd, Elle’s Studio, SRM Stickers, Provocraft, Pebbles, and Jillibean Soup. Her projects have been published in a variety of magazines and idea books and she has had projects displayed at the Craft and Hobby Association Trade Show. Most recently she has begun creating graphics and product design as a graphic artist for Jillibean Soup.
Juliana is married to Danny, her best friend and the love of her life. She is also mom to a Golden Retriever named Lincoln and an American Paint Horse named Woody. She has a fondness for coffee, Mexican food, turtles and antiquing. In her spare time she enjoys running, working out, cooking, and reading science and historical fiction.
Hi, I’m Jen and I am passionate about telling my stories through words and photos. I’ve been cutting and glueing paper since I was 12 and I still love every minute I’m creating. Lately I’ve developed an obsession with brush lettering and I enjoy incorporating my handwriting into my projects. I live at the foot of the Rocky Mountains with my husband and daughter and I love having everyday adventures and recording them.
I am a thirty something stay-at-home mom to my kindergartener and pre-schooler. I started scrapbooking around 2005, although I have been “crafty” my entire life, dabbling in different crafts here and there. In 2007 I discovered the online world of scrapbooking, which totally changed the way I scrapbook. Since then, I’ve been on several teams for kit clubs, manufacturers, and challenge blogs. In January of 2014, I took over ownership of an online retail scrapbook store called My Scraps & More. I have an entire store in my basement, and it allows me the best of both worlds to work part time from home in the store and spend time with my kids, too! (Not to mention I get to scrap with ALL THE THINGS!)
I love to scrap about our everyday moments and try to record all those little things that are said and done. I’m also so glad that we live in a place like upstate NY where we experience every season because I love being able to change up my products and inspiration from one season to the next!
I love how scrapbooking can remove me from anything else I may have on my mind, and just take me to a place where all I think about are colors, patterns, and the memories behind this photo. I also love the social part of it, too, in going to crops and retreats, and the online support and camaraderie!
In addition to scrapbooking, I love to quilt and sew, garden, play volleyball, and watch movies and sci-fi TV series!
My name is Carol Swift and I’m retired from office administrative work. I live in Southern Utah, but also spend time in Nevada where I grew up, worked, and have family. My blog was started in 2008 just to keep track of my sewing projects, but I soon stepped out of my comfort zone by participating in sew-alongs and blog hops. With the encouragement of others, it opened up a whole new world of sewing for me and enabled me to be more creative and think outside the box. I’ve also created a few patterns and enjoy trying new sewing techniques and products.
Being married and the mother of four children, three girls and one boy, I sewed a lot of clothes and household items over the years. I also sewed a few wedding dresses and designed hand quilted tricot quilts. Now I’m the grandmother of five grandsons we call the Monkey Boys, who earn their name by never stopping for more than a few minutes and climb on everything. They will stop long enough to sit on my lap or beside me while I sew and a couple of them have designed their own quilts and labels with my help. Being a part of the Therm O Web team is a whole new and exciting adventure for me!
My name is Jenifer Cowles and I live in a small town in Middleton, Idaho. I work in the IT Department for a small city by day and Scrap and Sew after the kiddos go to sleep by night. I have 3 cutie pies who give me tons to scrap about, Caleb (12), Madison (10 going on 16) and Hunter (6). I have been doing some sort of crafting my entire life and my day just doesn’t feel complete without making something. I love a challenge and can make just about anything. I am so excited to be working with Therm O Web, it is perfect for any type of project.
Pat Sloan has been creating since she was a child. From the first shoebox dioramas to sketches for a fabric line, there has always been creative energy flowing. When she tried her hand at quilting in 1985, she never looked back. Now, owner and founder of the quilting design and publishing company Pat Sloan & Co., she has published over 30 books, more than 100 patterns, nearly 10 fabric lines, and has had her work featured in all the major Quilt magazines. In January 2010 Pat started hosting her weekly Internet Radio show called ‘Creative Talk Radio”.

Hi, I’m Maureen!
A stay-at-home mother of three, a lover of all things crafty and creative, and I make things by hand, at home in small town Pennsylvania ♥. I have a passion for sewing, quilting, fabric, knitting, felting, and drawing. I started blogging in 2010 for a little space of my own — for sharing my passion to create, to document what I learn & how I grow as an artistic person, and to have a special place to keep & share all my projects and those special moments that myself and my children create together throughout our days.
In addition to the Thermoweb Design Team, I am also a Riley Blake Design Team member, a member of the Janome Independent Design Team, and part of the Art Gallery Fabrics Fat Quarter Gang.
I’m so incredibly thankful to be a part of the online sewing community and feel so blessed to be able to make & seek out new artistic goals because of the support & encouragement I receive. Thank you!

My name is Molly Hanson. I am the daughter of an artist/musician father and an artist/sewer/crafter mother and grew up appreciating all things arts and crafts. I started quilting 10 years ago when my nieces and nephews started arriving and I wanted to make them heirloom gifts. I have always felt handmade is best. I taught myself and now specialize in free motion quilting and designing original quilts and other handmade items. I live in sunny Palm Springs with my better half Jeff and my two dogs Moose and Juki- who are like my kids. When I am not quilting I like to be in the woods camping, hiking and fishing. I look forward to this opportunity to work with Thermoweb as I am a big fan of their products and I love to design new things! Thank you!
Jamie Mueller currently lives in St. Louis, Missouri with her husband Jonathan and son Jared. She spends her time quilting and sewing. Jamie’s mother, Jill, taught her to sew at a very early age. After graduating from Concordia University with a Bachelor of Arts degree, her focus shifted to sewing, and she became partners with her mother at Sunflower QUILTS. At Sunflower QUILTS they design patterns and notions (such as their Thread Cutter for chain piecing), offer custom quilts and machine quilting.
I am a mother, wife, artist, apple orchardist, retired civil engineer, and entrepreneur.
I’m a HUGE fan of online quilt alongs. Participating in them has really helped me hone my piecing skills and encouraged me to try things I never thought I would try (ie: New York Beauty Blocks). Also, they’ve been great for helping me use my scrap stash!
In 2010 I dreamed up Project QUILTING, and since then hundreds of quilts have been created and thousands of dollars worth of prizes have been awarded.
I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm about creativity through teaching, lecturing, and blogging.
Hi! My name is Jacquelynne, and I just like to make stuff! I am an artist and illustrator, and I design fabric and quilt & sewing patterns for the quilting industry. I like to sew and cook and decorate and paint pretty pictures… and, oh yeah… eat too much chocolate! I believe that you don’t have to be an artiste̓, or a chef, or a professional photographer to live a creative life.
One of my favorite things to do is to put together my free emagazine, called The Art of Home, about 4 times per year. In it, I share simple sewing and craft projects, fun and easy recipes, interesting designer and artist interviews, and cute art. In addition to that, I also host a free Block of the Month quilt event on my blog each year. My work has been featured in the American Patchwork and Quilting Calendar, Quilts & More Magazine, and Quiltmaker magazine.
Come along with me, I’d love to “meet” you!

I’m Amy. I am a stay-at-home mother of two. I have enjoyed creating ever since I can remember. I have fond childhood memories of painting Christmas ornaments with my family or learning a new crochet stitch from my grandmother. Creating carried over into my adult life. I started quilting and blogging in 2012 and I have loved it ever since. I always try to do something a little different each time I cut into a piece of fabric. When not creating in my sewing room, I enjoy spending my time camping, fishing, working in my yard, and making my kids laugh. I look forward to this new adventure working on the Therm-o-Web design team.
