My name is Anne Kristine Skovborg Holt. I am married and have five children and four grandchildren. We live in Halden, about 15 minutes away from the Swedish border.
I have always enjoyed to “play” with paper, and have always been involved in some kind of hobby. In the spring of 2004, I tried using a stamp for the first time. In the fall of 2004 I made my first layout after having been on a trip to Egypt. Then my interest for paper crafting just emerged and I started a journey through different kinds
of papers and techniques. I love being creative and I see it as recreation
to engage in paper crafting in my hobby room.
All the different Design Teams I have been a part of have given me much inspiration and have allowed me to grow and evolve as a paper crafter. The process of creating is very important to me. I love the vintage style and try to vary the techniques. Even though I often craft cards and layouts I also like to create pictures to hang on the wall or other things that can brighten up my home.
I am very grateful for the opportunity to be a part of Pion Design Team. When I first came across their papers it was love at first sight – they are simply bringing out my creative joy!

My name is Annica Hedberg, and i live in Örnsköldsvik, in the northern part of Sweden. I divide my time between my partner and daughter, work, home renovating, and scrapbooking. I have been scrapbooking for several years now, and I never get tired of this hobby!
I love vintage and shabby chic, and I guess that’s the reason why I just love all the papers from Pion Design! I have had the opportunity to create for Pion Design a couple of times, and I’m so happy and grateful for that.
This time I’m going to focus on altered projects. Altering is very dear to my heart! I hope that I will be able to inspire you to alter as well.

My name is Marianne Skeljstad and I’m from Sande i Vestold, just outside Drammen in Norway. I live together with my wonderful husband and our three lovely children at the ages 4, 7 and 12. I started scrapping for about five years ago and have been hooked ever since. There will not pass a day when I’m not by my hobby desk with my papers and stamps. I craft cards and almost any other paper projects except layouts.
I am not too keen on describing my style or preference, since I prefer to vary my work and try new ideas. I guess you could say my trademark is all the different kind of folding techniques I use making my cards. I love to discover a new way of folding, some of them found through other paper crafters blogs, and some of them invented by myself. I am found of sweetness, elegance and romance and I enjoy fun filled and detailed projects.
I am extremely glad and proud to be a member of Pion Design Team, and I very much enjoy to be given the opportunity to craft with these beautiful papers!

Hi, my name is Minna Paajanen. I live in Äänekoski, central of Finland with my husband and our seven children.
Since I was a little girl I have done everything with my hands; knitting, sewing, crocheting etc. But in the end of 2008 I found paper crafting by my friend and I started with 3d cards. Soon it was changed for stamping and coloring and I’m on this road! My focus is on cards although I have done a few scrapbooking layouts and I’m so thrilled about this too. I would like to do so much more, but… maybe some day I have a lot of time.
I love all the beautiful vintage and shabby things. I love to use a lot of lace and gauze on my cards. I’m always inspired with beautiful Pion Design papers and I have been falling in love since I found them ♥

My name is Natasha and I’m the mother of two wonderful children and the wife of an amazing and supportive man. I am a floral designer by day and a scrapaholic by night!
I first discovered my love for scrapbooking in 2004 but was unable to scrap because I was a single mother and had no spare time for myself or for hobbies. For years I was unable to craft, but my passion for it never faded. I got married in 2010 and my husband inspired and encouraged me to start creating. If it weren’t for him, I would have never been able to begin doing what I love.
As for my scrapping style… well, I don’t know how to categorize my style exactly LOL. I just create using products I love. I love to incorporate different techniques in my work and use a variety of different elements. Every day I am inspired by the amazing work and talent of others, and I hope to be able to inspire others with my work as well.
