Meet the Designers of Come and Get It Challenges


Hi My name is Cindy van Oorschot, I live in Aurora Ontario Canada with my husband Bill and our four  feathered  friends, Bandit our conure parrot, Leland our cockatiel, Max our parrotlet and Sunny our lovebird.
I’ve been doing crafts most of my life I started with crocheting, and went onto knitting, cross stitch, then onto beading. I still enjoy working in these mediums, but my love has turned to paper crafts. I have been making cards now for 15 years. I started out doing  Pergamano, then using embroidery on paper, and onto 3d cards. I didn’t start getting into stamping until about 2007, which I only dabbled in it then. I then went to a Stampin Up party and learnt a lot more about rubber stamping and have been doing it since. I also enjoy doing digital scrapbooking. I've been involved on a few card making groups over the years, started my own blog in March 2008, and have been blogging since. I've been on the Design Team of Come and Get It for the past 2 years,and also a designer for Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge, Crafting for all Seasons Challenge, and for Wags'n Whiskers Stamps and love meeting all the new talented card makers and crafters out there.  To check out my creations you can visit my blog at Creating with Cindy


Hi, my name is Julie. I am the mother of one beautiful daughter living in Eastern Iowa. From the time I was old enough to hold a needle and thread I have been creating. I love needlepoint, cross stitch, and crocheting...things my Mom taught me.  
I started card making on a serious basis about 6 years ago, but I bought my first stamp 15 years ago! I got involved with several on-line stamping groups, and learned more and more about card making. Three years ago I started a blog, and REALLY discovered what card making was all about.
I have found Digital stamps in the last 2 years and LOVE them. I am a Designer for Bugaboo Digi Stamps and Catch the Bug Challenges. I am also on the Design Team at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge, and have been having so much fun! I work with MANY other talented card makers, and have been blessed to "meet" SO MANY talented and wonderful people from around the world in Blogland!  Please feel free to visit my blog at Julie's Rubber Temple


Hello I’m Shell and I hail from the Great state of Alaska, USA  I’ve been crafting most of my life thanks to my dear Mom…. it’s in my blood!   I started crafting seriously back about 2004 when I took over for a SU demonstrator since she was quitting.  Little did I know that it really was addicting, I am currently designing for Come And Get It and for a couple other Challenge blogs.  I do enjoy most any craft tho and currently doing some ceramic projects for Christmas presents.
I work full time as a driver for the Kenaitze Indian Tribe Elders, and have driven Tour Bus for 12yrs and also School Bus.
Been married 34 years to a wonderful man and living 20 yrs in Alaska, we have 2 grown sons that I’m extremely proud of.
The furry kids at home are 2 purebred Australian Shepherds and a Princess Tabby Cat that rules the house. You can visit my blog at
Creative Crafting by Shell


Hi.  My name is Judy McKay and I am retired and recently moved with my husband to the sunny Okanagan, British Columbia, Canada. I love all areas of paper crafts and especially addicted to anything related to card making.   I have been making cards for close to ten years and an active member of several rubber stamp, ATC and mix media Yahoo groups, one which I am a moderator for.  I am a challenge and technique junkie. I started blogging last year to share my search for my creative side and you can view my creations at:
My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. "You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”


Hi everyone, my name is Meighan Wheller and I live in Sydney Australia.  I am the mother of a wonderful daughter and we share our home with Daisy the Dog (a Border Collie) and Flick the Bird (a cockatiel).
I attended my first card class about 10 years ago and I was hooked.  I am always inspired by new techniques, challenges and general curiosity of what everyone is else is doing and then finding the time to give this new inspiration a go.
I have been a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator now for nearly 3 years, although I mainly create cards I have recently been challenging myself to make some 3D projects and some scrapbooking.
I am so lucky to have connected and to continue to be connecting with so many wonderful and very talented people who all love to share their passion and enthusiasm for creating.  You can visit me anytime at Stampin with Meighan.


Hey, y’all. What an honor it is to be chosen as part of this Design Team. Scary too since I’m computer challenged and I’ve never been on a DT. I live in Jacksonville Beach, Florida. I’m married to my best friend, have children, grandchildren and the best pet in the world. His name is Woolfie the Bear. He’s a stuffed teddy bear and he knows he’s not real. I’ve been making cards for about 4 years. I’ve taught a few girlfriends how to make cards. Okay, so I got them addicted to it. My motto is: It’s only paper. If it ticks you off, throw it in the recycle bin. When you get a chance, please stop and visit my blog. Bunny's Cards


I'm Barb living in Hope, BC, Canada, hubby & I moved to this beautiful little town with our 4 fur babies once we both retired. I began stamping in 1994, it is still my passion. I also enjoy experimenting with different mediums such as water color, various inks Copic markers, acrylic paint & techniques including distressing, and stamping on various surfaces which include glass, metal, wood etc.  These days I'm mostly making cards, being creative in my art journal & knitting most evenings.

My Stamping Addiction


Hi I'm Jo, I live in Sheffield in the UK with my husband and son James. I've been card making and paper crafting for 5 years and I love stamping, digi stamps and experimenting with colouring techniques. When I'm not crafting or colouring in, I'm studying to be a teaching assistant and volunteering at my son's school. As you can tell I like to keep busy :) If you'd like to visit my blog it's  


 Hello!  My name is Roberta and I live in Indiana.  I married my high school sweet heart over 28 years ago and still have a huge crush on the guy.  We're the proud parents of 3 incredible young men.  We also have 2 very spoiled little Shiba Inu dogs that make me smile every single day. 
I've been a crafter/diy'er all of my life.  In the past, I've worked as a florist and a caterer.  I adored the creative outlet of both jobs but didn't care much for the hours.....when the weekends and holidays hit is when both of those jobs go into high gear.  Several years ago I decided I wanted those times with my family.  Since then, I've done both things for play rather than pay.
I began making cards a little over a year ago and have found a true passion.  I'm amazed at the artistry I see displayed by so many card designers.  YouTube is my very good friend because I love learning new techniques and there are loads of talented individuals that so graciously share their tutorials.  I won't go into details about how much time I've "invested" in watching those videos.
I really look forward to working with all of the members of the Come and Get It Design Team.  Hopefully, I will be able to provide some inspiration to a few folks along the way.     You can visit my blog at Queen Bee Paper Crafts
