Dynamic Duos Reminder and Meet the New Dynamos!



We want to remind you that our current colour challenge is up and we would love for you to join us! It is the last challenge for our current team, and we just adored working with all of these gals! Thank you ladies!


We would like to introduce you to our new Design Team at Dynamic Duos! These lovely ladies will be joining us starting Saturday, May 4th! Welcome to the team ladies! Click on their names to visit their blogs.



Hi I'm Tracey McNeely and I am super excited to be one of the new Dynamic Dynamos along with a group of amazingly talented ladies.  I live in Oshawa, Ontario which is not far from Toronto and have been married to my very supportive high school sweetheart for almost 23 years. I am Mom to Ben, 18 and Brooklyn, 15.  I taught high school for nearly 17 years when I had to leave my job because I was no longer able to manage my MS along with working. I love travelling, cooking, reading and all things crafty.  With a passion for paper and stamps I have been making cards since my teens and scrapbooking now for about 12 years. I find that I am happiest in my studio creating projects that are clean and simple.  Playing with paper is definitely my favourite creative outlet and find it very therapeutic.  I hope that I am able to share my love of paper crafting with you.


Hi Everyone! What an honor to be able to design for Dynamic Duos and work with a wonderful team of girls! I am from Hodgdon Maine and am approaching my 5th year as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and love every minute of it!  I have been married to Dave since July 2008 and have two grown children Jessica 28, Greg 26 and one granddaughter Kaitlynn who just turned 5 and is a joy to have around! We own two kitty cats named Abigail and Katie whom were both acquired through our local animal shelter.  Dave and I are self-employed business owners so we are on the road a lot. I have always been crafty, even attending college to earn an art degree but decided to get married and start a family a year after I attended college. Stamping is something I’ve always stuck with as it never gets old. I haven’t purchased a store bought card in over 15 years! I hope you will enjoy my submissions and I look forward to sharing with all of you!


Hello!  I'm Susie Wittwer, and I'm so excited to join the new team at Dynamic Duos.  I'm thrilled to get the chance to work with this super talented group of crafters!  My husband and I live near a small farming community in northern Illinois.  I work full time, but you can probably guess where I spend my free time.  Yes, at my craft table.  This hobby began when I attended a Stampin' Up party many years (and $$$'s) ago.  I was hooked immediately.  I enjoy stamping so much and I enjoy sharing those cards and projects with family and friends.  I've been blogging since 2010, and love playing along in challenges. One of my cards has been published in Paper Crafts Magazine and another will be published in the July/August 2013 issue.
I cherish the friendships I've made in this crafting and blogging community and hope to make many more!


Hi everyone! I am so excited to be a part of the new team here at Dynamic Duos! I have been married to Quintin since 1994 and we live on a farm in central Alberta, CANADA with our 2 children, Calvin and Kim, dog Cocoa and 2 cats :) We run our own business for the summer months here on the farm, and then Quint works away for the winter months - so, my craft room is my so-called "sanctuary!" My crafty journey started wayyyy back (12+ years) when I hosted a Stampin' Up! demonstration. That was all it took. I was a demonstrator up until about 2 years ago then retired from SU! and broadened my horizons with other companies and products. I love the world of paper, ink, Copics and stamps and love to play along with challenges. I am so happy to share my excitement and love of paper crafting with you and look forward to making new friendships along the way!



Hi everyone.  I am so thrilled to be a part of the Dynamic Duos design team and look forward to the fun we're going to have together.  I am a mother of three wonderful children, 2 boys (26 and 13) and one daughter (25) and have been happily married to Jim for 29 years.  After the birth of our youngest, I started scrapbooking as a side hobby amongst being mommy and wife, but four years ago, I realized that I had a knack for card making/stamping and haven’t looked back since. It has been a blessing and a fabulous hobby that I hope to be able to continue and become even better at. I grew up in the mountains of North Carolina and am the oldest of 5 children, but now make my home in Gilbert, South Carolina, which is near Columbia. I hope you enjoy my creations and look forward to making many new friends during the coming months.


Hi! My name is Alison (aka Gothdove Designs) and I live in Brisbane, Australia. I have been a card maker for about 10 years and fell in love with stamping about 3 years ago when I realised just how wonderful and creative stamping is! My style is generally "clean and simple" and I like lots of white space! My other creative world is music...my husband is a drummer and drumming teacher and I work in as an arts administrator for our state orchestra. I'm also a loving (and exhausted) mum to my beautiful two little men who are 4 & 2 years old. I am SO excited to be part of the Dynamic Duos Design Team....Dynamic Duos is dynamite! :)



Hello! My name is Tara and I live in Ontario, Canada. I’ve been crafting for as long as I can remember, but only recently discovered Stampin’ Up! (about 3 years ago). I love anything to do with colour and design, and love sharing with and learning from all the talented people I come across on this journey. I have two young boys (1 and 4) and a wonderfully supportive husband. When I’m not crafting, I’m working my “day job” as a Client Service Analyst, or spending time with my fabulous family.

I’m absolutely thrilled to be a part of the Dynamic Duos team and looking forward to meeting many new friends!



Hello! My name is Hayley and I live in Ontario, Canada. Let me start by saying I could not be more thrilled to be a part of the Dynamic Duos Team, really looking forward to joining in the fun with all of these lovely ladies! I have been paper crafting for about 10 years now and 3 years ago I became a Stampin' UP! demonstrator. I have made some fabulous friends over the past 3 years sharing what I love with people through my classes and blogging. I am the very proud mother of a 4 year old boy and a 6 month old girl and have a beyond amazing husband who helps me to do the things in life which make me happy! When I am not spending time with my beautiful family or tucked away in my craft room,I have the privilege of being a birth and postpartum doula.

So looking forward to seeing the creations you have to share with us!   



Hello everyone! My name is Janet Zeppa and I live in St.Catharines Ontario Canada. That is close to Niagara Falls. My husband and I are proud parents of 3 grown children, 1 girl and 2 boys. We are now empty nesters and life is good! I love paper crafting and have been scrapbooking for about 10 years. When my daughter became engaged I just knew that I wanted to do something special with all the wedding photos and that's how it all began.  I am super excited to be a part of the Dynamic Duos team and I look forward to meeting all of you fellow crafters out there. I'm sure that we will inspire each other.



Hello! I am Michelle and I live in Brisbane, Australia with my husband and my two gorgeous girls (10 and 5).  We also have a dog Coco, budgie Sunny, and fish Bubbles. When my eldest daughter started school five years ago, I attended a Stampin' Up! workshop and promptly fell in love with making cards. By the time I started blogging at the end of 2010, I was totally hooked. The amazing people I have met in blogland have enriched my life. I have made so many friends, learned so much, and I am inspired daily! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to join the Dynamic Duos Team and I'm looking forward to my time here!
