I'm thrilled to be a part of CASology! Being a clean and simple kind of gal, this is a dream come true! I am a dental hygienist by trade, but am currently a SAHM to three boys & one girl with a wonderful DH of 15 years. I love spending time in the great outdoors with my family, reading a good book and doing creative things like photography, card making and scrapbooking! When all is quiet in the house, I usually find myself in my craft room with inky fingers. I love making cards and then sending them off to unsuspecting mailboxes. After all, everyone needs happy mail from time to time! I'm so excited to be working with this talented group and can't wait to see all the wonderful CAS creations in the weeks ahead!

I’m so excited to be working with the talented card makers of CASology! I started cardmaking in 2006, at a Stampin’ Up! Party and have never looked back. Before that, I would not have claimed to be crafty or creative at all – I’m an accountant! I live in Toronto, Canada and am currently a SAHM to my 13 year old son and my 9 year old daughter. I also volunteer in my daughter’s school and I am the piano accompanist for two children’s choirs.

I love clean, graphic design with bold colours and lots of white space. My favourite cards are the ones where stamps are used in unexpected ways to create something completely different. I can’t wait to see all the CAS goodness that this new blog will generate!

Hi, my name is Hannelie Bester.  I am a South-African living in the United Arab Emirates (Abu Dhabi) for the last 7 years.  We moved to this part of the world because of a job opportunity that was offered to my husband.  I started blogging soon after we moved here... hence the title of my blog!  Living so far away from my loved ones made me realize how much I love them.  Card making helps me cope with being far away from home and challenges my right brain since I am a left brained, logical and analytical pharmacist at heart!  Graphic, bold and creative are words I come across when people describe my style.

Cue word: ECSTATIC! Joining CASology’s inspiring Design Team is a dream come true! I live in sunny, beachy Western Australia, with my three young energetic boys and endlessly tolerant and supportive husband. I currently work part-time in marketing; however my stock trade is health promotion / public health. I have always had a passion for paper but didn’t really know what to do with it.  It wasn't until I teamed it with rubber stamping that something clicked! This, coinciding with the discovery of card blogging in  2013, and I suddenly had an extremely satisfying and highly addictive hobby. CAS designs rapidly became my favourite style of card-making, with CASology’s evocative cue words filling my head and my blog!
I am ecstatic beyond measure to be part of this amazing team! I hope that my love of the creative and (ever-evolving) process shines through in the projects I share with you. I KNOW that I will be inspired by your projects every week!

Hello everyone!  I am so excited to be joining CASology - my very first design team!  I live in Bermuda with my hubby and two crazy hounds, Atticus and Jem, and work part time at a veterinary hospital.  I started dabbling in card making in 2007 but it wasn't until I discovered this crafty blogging world that I really fell in love with it.  I spend as much time as possible creating in my Craft Cave and love all the sharing of ideas and meeting of new people through our blogs.  I can't wait to see all the talent and ideas that come through CASology!

I am so happy to be joining the CASology design team.  This is my first design team and I am in awe of the company I am keeping.  I started stamping in the summer of 2010, when I had my youngest daughter's birthday party at Paper Source.  Once I discovered clear stamps and the on-line blogging community, I was hooked.  I live in a small beach town in San Diego County with my husband, two teenage daughters, our new puppy and a sweet little pet rat.  I worked in the corporate world for many years before retiring to spend more time with my family.  My other interests include spinning, reading and playing with our puppy.

Hello, friends!  I am so excited to be joining the CASology Design Team!  I am married to my high school sweetheart, mom to four awesome kids and am employed as a school psychologist.  My other hobbies include singing, gardening, reading, and occasional scrapbooking.  Life here in New Jersey is very busy and very fun!  I was introduced to rubber stamping over ten years ago when my best friend sent me a hand-made Christmas card, and I have been hooked ever since.  I love clean and simple cards, and am thrilled to be part of the CASology team!

If I'm dreaming please do not wake me. I'm so excited to be joining the Casology Design Team. I am a single mother of two wonderful children who are 8 years apart. My 16 year old son is a true self-made jock who plays every sport you can think of ! My 7 year old daughter is a real life princess who loves anything crafty and girly and absolutely hates anything related to sports. Talk about yin and yang! …but I love it!! Besides running from one activity to another with them, I work full time at a hospital (public health background), facilitate a reading group at work, teach high school students on the weekends and have a huge love of learning new things.  I’ve taken classes in photography, web design, knitting, scrapbooking and card-making. I love them all, however, my true passion is card-making. I was introduced to card making back in 2004 and haven’t turned back since.


Hello, I am so excited to be a part of CASology.  I live in Oshawa, Ontario and have been married to my very supportive high school sweetheart for almost 22 years. I am Mom to Ben, 17 and Brooklyn, 15.  After teaching high school for nearly 17 years I left my job 5 years ago because I have MS and working even part time was too difficult.  Now I am a SAHM to my children and 7 year old Havanese Sam.  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 7 years. I find that I am happiest in my studio creating projects that are clean and simple.  Playing with paper is definitely my creative outlet and very therapeutic.  I hope that I am able to share my love of papercrafting with you.
