Welcome Our New Design Team Members!

Please join us in welcoming two new talented artists to our H2H Design Team!

My name is Amy Pitts from DeKalb IL.  My husband Kenny and I are the modern day Brady Bunch: he had 2 sons and 1 daughter and I have 3 daughters so now we have 6 kids among us. Only my youngest lives with us as all the rest of them are adults. Our two oldest children both have families of their own so we also have 5 grandchildren. Lots of great memories to scrapbook and lots of reasons to send out cards on a regular basis!

I have been artsy my whole life but in 1995 I discovered scrapbooking and instantly fell in love and soon after stamping, making cards was instant gratification and who doesn't love getting happy mail? I never looked back and eventually spent most of my spare time making pretty things. I also enjoy making ABC items (anything but a card), home decor items, and decorating planners. Basically I just love pape rcrafts!!

My name is Michelle Johns, and I live in Vancouver, WA, with my fantastic husband of almost 25 years.  Together we have four kids ranging from 15 to 24.  I work outside of the home for a small company about 30 hours a week.

I have always loved to be crafty.  I remember painting salt ornaments each Christmas with my mom, drawing things for years, and wanting to scrapbook from the time I was in high school.  I knew I couldn't afford it then, or have the space for it, so I kept turning away from it.  After some time, I found that I could do my scrapbooking digitally, and I loved it!  I was able to use the same stuff over and over again, and it made me happy.  One day, one of my friends asked if I wanted to join a card making group that met monthly, and I said SURE!  It was a lot of fun, and I *almost* signed up to be a consultant for that company.  I was talking to another friend about it, and she asked if I had heard of CTMH before.  My reply was that I had no idea what those letters stood for, so .  . no.  She told me to look them up.  As soon as I saw that they were clear stamps, I was SOLD!  I didn't even have to use them to know that THAT was the company I wanted to sign up for!  That was more than 10 years ago, and I have been happily stamping with my CTMH products ever since!

You can find me online in these places:

Welcome, Amy and Michelle!  We're so glad to have you as part of our design team!
