Meet the Creative Team
Lien Leysen – Creative Team Coordinator
I’m Lien, a cardmaker from Belgium. I love to challenge myself and try new techniques, which is why you’ll find all sorts of cards on this blog! Critters, florals, simple cards or cards with a million layers… To me papercrafting is all about having fun and exploring.
Hello everyone!! My name is Brenda & I live in a small town in MO. I’ve been married to my wonderful husband, Doug, for almost 26 years!! We have three fur babies, Bailey, Sidney (both golden retrievers) & Abby (a 10 month old mini goldendoodle)!! I have always had a creative side, especially a love for coloring. I even competed in a coloring contest when I was in grade school & won several tickets to Six Flags. During high school & college I airbrushed T-shirts at Six Flags. I became involved in papercrafting through scrapbooking, which I did for several years. The last several years I have become addicted to card making. I LOVE coloring with all different mediums, including inks, Copic markers, watercolor, Zig watercolor markers, colored pencils, etc. It’s my therapy…lol!
My name is Bobbi Lemanski and I am a lover of color and design. Cardmaking is a great way to use the creative side of my brain. I get a kick out of finding clever, new ways to use my stamp sets. In addition to papercrafts, I love interior design and painting abstracts on canvas.My husband, Kevin and I have twins, Tarek (TJ) and Olivia and a sweet dog named, Stella.
Hi, Emelie here! I live in Stockholm, Sweden with my family – Andreas and our two kids. I work as a teacher and practice basketball as often as I can. But of course, my real passion is cardmaking and paper crafting in general. I have been a card maker ever since I discovered heat embossing and spent a month watching all YouTube clips I could find. I love this hobby of ours so much, It brings me joy every day. I am so excited to be a part of Alex Syberias design team!
Hi there! I’m Erica, and I’m a self-confessed craft-a-holic. I’ve always been creative in one way or another, for as long as I can remember. Sewing, wood working, metal working, painting, stitching and embroidery etc etc. The list goes on.
My biggest love, however, is card making, and it has been for years now. I started with a christmas card kit some 17+ years ago and it was a slippery slope from there on.
I love colouring and seeing projects come to life in front of me, it speaks to my soul on a deep level. If I didn’t have a crafty outlet, I’m 100% sure I’d go nuts. Or nuttier as some people would say…
Hi everyone! My name is Nicoletta and I live on the beautiful island of Sardinia, in Italy, with my supportive and lovely hubby and my sweet daughter Alice who fill my heart, I’ve always had a love for all sorts of craft, I first discovered scrapbooking in 2002 while visiting friend of mine that show me an album made by her mother. Paper crafting just seemed to be the perfect fit for me and since then I continued to make scrap albums and layouts but in the years I developed a deep love for cardmaking and colouring and now I can’t live without my Copic markers and any sort of coloring media.Beside from spending time with my loved ones and paper crafting is I enjoy traveling and cooking
Hi, I’m Sandi MacIver. My cardmaking started over 30 years ago with 1 angel stamp and some gold embossing powder. I was hooked. I’m still mesmerized by that melting goo, haha. I’m a lifelong crafter. I remember around age 5 spending my allowance on a pansy stencil. Apparently, I stencilled everything in the house that didn’t move, haha. Fast forward to today. I make cards every single day. It’s my jam, and I’m very excited for all the layering stencils out now. I’m very excited to be joining the Alex Syberia Design YouTube Design team and to share my card ideas with you.
Amanda is a papercrafting enthusiast who loves to make cards, bullet journal, scrapbook, and any other crafts she can get her hands on! She loves to share her crafty creations with others.
Sylvie aka Kaliscards
My name is Sylvie aka Kaliscards. Kali is my sweet cat girl and I decided to name my social media accounts Kali’s cards, as we share the same space when I craft. I started handcrafting Christmas cards about two decades ago, with basic supplies, but it’s only a few years ago that I decided to buy my first Big shot, alcohol markers, ink pads and stamp sets. And I just became addicted.
