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 Cathrine Sandvik, and I live in Bodø, a small town in northern Norway. I’m married with the love of my life, and we have two wonderful boys.
I love papercrafting, and I can spend hours in my craftroom almost every day. It’s calming, and brings joy to my life. If I have to describe my style I would probably say it’s a mix of romantic, shabby chic and vintage. More is less, and I use a lot of layerings, flowers and laces when I craft.
I have always had a soft spot for Pion Designs papers. The soft palett and romantic style fit’s me perfectly. Being asked by Pion Design to become part of their design team was a dream come true for me. I’m so proud and honored, and can hardly wait to start on this great journey.

My name is Johanna Westin but I call myself “Pojjo” online. I live with my partner and our two children in a small village in northern Sweden. I started scrapbooking in 2008, when my doctor recommended that I’d start with a quiet hobby and told me about scrapbooking. It didn’t take long before I was hooked.
When I create, the colors and patterns of the papers are incredibly important, they are the very foundation of my creations and trigger my creativity. I often choose mild and soft colors so it’s not a surprise that Pion Design’s beautiful papers have been my favorites since the very beginning. I would probably describe my style as a mix of vintage and romantic, but I’m not afraid to try new styles and things. For me scrapbooking is like a balm for the soul, making me feel good and relaxed and this hobby has also given me the opportunity to get to know so many fun and nice people.
I have been a designer for several shops and businesses over the years, but I must admit it was incredibly flattering to be asked by Pion Design if I wanted to be part of their Design Team. Who can say no to something like that?! So I hope I’ll be able to inspire you here at Pion Design, and you are always welcome to visit my blog.

My name is Marianne Skjelstad 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!

Hello, My name is Mona. I come from a small town in Norway called Raufoss. I am 48 years old and live together with the man of my life and we have two children together. I work at the best place I can think of, LYKKE , a store for yarn and hobby, and I think the name says it all. I’m so glad having the opportunity to be creative both at home and at work.
I have been into scrapping for many years and I love spending time in my crafting room. I enjoy creativity in many different ways, but paper crafting is what I love the most. I started out making layouts, but these last couple of years I have turned more into making cards. Shabby is the best description of my style and I love soft colors, although I must admit that I love trying new things and challenges.

Hello Everyone! My name is Pamellia Johnson and I live on Lake Aquitaine in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada with my wonderful husband, our two little girls, Scully (a teacup Maltese) and Pebbles (a teacup black Pomeranian), and a family of adorable squirrels as well.
I have been crafting in some form or another ever since I was a little kid, thanks to my very creative and talented Mom. I’ve dabbled in all sorts of crafts, but I think what I enjoy making the most is handmade cards, and I really love doing shabby chic style cards with tons of laces, pearls and flowers!
I have recently discovered the world of designer papers. All those soft colours, dainty patterns and beautiful imagery make crafting an absolute delight! Thank you so much to the Pion Design Team for welcoming me into their family. I look forward to this next leg of my crafting adventure.

Hello! I’m Tara Brown and live in Edmond, Oklahoma. I am married and have three daughters, two stepdaughters, and six wonderful grandchildren, soon to be seven! I work full-time as an optometrist, but my evenings are spent paper crafting. I began in 2011 so that I could make meaningful keepsake paper projects for my family and inspirational projects for my mother’s ladies missionary prayer group. My favorite projects are dimensional ones.
The beautiful papers of Pion Design provide me with inspiration. They have remained my favorite paper line and I find it difficult to use anything else! I am so very humbly honored and grateful to be joining such a remarkable and talented Design Team.

Hi everyone, I’m Tracy better known in craftworld as Crafteezee. I have been married to my understanding Husband for 28 years, can’t quite believe it myself. I have two lovely children, Jade who is 22 and my son Conor who is 19, I know I don’t look old enough, lol.
I started making cards around 6 years ago and quickly progressed into scrapbooking, just so I could keep some of the work that I had done. Just before Christmas 2009 I was inspired seeing some cards made with magnolia stamps and decided to make a few Christmas cards and from January 2010 my blog was born.
I am now addicted to stamps and all things crafty and if I am not in my craft room, I am on my laptop, ipad or my iphone, well according to my husband that is. Both my husband and my son think all my head consists of is two eyes, lol. I also work full time as a Purchasing Office Manager for an automotive company, so I am generally a very busy lady, but one who always finds time to craft. In October of this year I opened the Noor!Design UK Webshop My new venture and I’ve roped Hubby in, bless him. I’ve made him Director of parts… little did he know that meant entering them onto the computer system, hehehehe.
I was over the moon when I was asked to design for Pion Design, a dream come true. I am honoured to be here and hope I inspire you!
