Meet The Design Team

Felicita Johnson – Challenge Creator – Team X

Hello, my name is Felicita, but my family and friends call me “Lisa” (hint, hint). I live and work in beautiful San Diego, CA, but you can always find me online at I started my paper crafting adventure back in 2013 when I stumbled upon my first Stampin’ Up card class. I’ve never looked back! Since then, I have become addicted to creating beautiful handmade cards — it’s like food for my soul. When I’m not working or crafting, you’ll find me with my laptop in hand watching YouTube videos and learning new card making techniques. I’m looking forward to sharing my creations with you.

Laurie Schmidt – Team O

Hi! I’m Laurie from Stampin’ Up North and I live in Northern Minnesota. I started paper crafting about 10 years ago when my hubby and I became empty nesters and I was looking for a new hobby. One stamp led to another…and you know the familiar story….I was hooked! I love to spend the long, cold, snowy Minnesota winters in my craft room making cards. I love using dies, and would say my style is clean and layered. I’m so excited to be joining the design team at Tic Tac Toe!

Shannon Jaramillo – Team X

My name is Shannon K Jaramillo (pronounced Har-a-me-yo) and I love making pretty things! I have always been a crafty person who discovered scrapbooking while my boys were young. I discovered card making/stamping, in 2010 and have been making cards ever since! I am an empty nester, mother to two very fine young men, wife to a wonderful man, and spend my spare moments in my crafting room. The creative process brings me great joy, as does organizing all of my beloved tools, stamps and papers. My style has been defining and re-defining itself over the years until now I find myself tending toward clean and simple with a lot of pattern paper and sparkles I am excited to be a part of the design team and look forward to a wonderful year playing Tic-Tac-Toe with you!

Charlotte Ehrukainen – Team O

Hello! I’m Charlotte a.k.a. Lady Joyful. I’m a Brit living in Finland with my husband and our three cats. I’m currently working as a nanny for my day job, juggling that with pet sitting and transcription work, but when I’m not working I love to make cards! I started making cards at the beginning of 2016 and quickly became addicted. I like to dabble in different styles but I lean towards CAS, and I love sharing my makes whether it’s on my blog, Instagram or YouTube. I’m so happy to be a part of the Tic Tac Toe challenge team.

Joanne James – Team X

I’m a fun loving, creative Welsh lady living in Northampton, England in the UK and when I’m not ferrying one or other of the James Juniors to a sports fixture or music lesson, I can often be found crafting on the poolside or designing projects to use in my Stampin’ Up! business. I love to create and blog and am addicted to running, chocolate and designer paper (not necessarily in that order!)
