Hi my name is Jen Chesnick, I go by Chez too. A long-time family nickname that I married into and it just kind of took a life of its own. Currently I live in the great state of Maryland with my husband Bill, my daughter Parker and my bonus daughter Tori. I sell cheese and crackers by day for Mondelez International and by night I craft, scrapbook, obsess over Pinterest & Facebook. Not only am I a social media addict I watch almost all reality TV it’s quite ridiculous. Remember The Real World? That’s where it ALL started. When I am not cooped up in the house I like to travel, and don’t be shocked but I love to camp. As long as I have wi-fi and a power strip all is well in the world.
I started scrapbooking in 2006 after seeing one of my Mothers scrapbooks. I've always been a pretty crafty gal. Some of my favorite childhood memories are of making crafts in Girl Scouts and patching together random fabric pieces making clothes. Paper crafting has turned into a full on obsession.
I've worked for Maya Road in previous years and always have enjoyed the mix of products. Now I've moved onto sewing and cannot wait to mix in fun trims, buttons and more.
Hi, I am Katrina Hunt and live in Springfield, MO. I have a roomie and we also live with four Cardigan Welsh Corgis, two of which are certified pet therapy dogs.
I started my scrapbooking journey in 2009, when I made a mini album for a friend as my first paper crafting project. After that I was hooked and the more fun stuff to play with the better!
I have designed for several companies and feel lucky to be given the chance to do something that I love and inspire people to create. I have also taught a few classes at my local scrapbook store and had a lot of fun doing it.
I love to try to come up with new ways to use products and Maya Road products are perfect for that, of course! I am so excited to be part of such an amazing, unique and fun company.
Hello! I am Stacy Koo, residing in south-east Asia - Singapore, together with my family. This month also marks a special date as I embark on a marriage journey with my boyfriend of 8 years!
8 years back, I got dragged by a fellow colleague to a local scrapbook store, and attended my very first class. Ever since then, I got hooked and this hobby had taken up a major part of my life now.
This love for scrapbooking has pushed me to pursue this hobby and sharing with fellow scrappers. I am honoured to be teaching alongside with wonderful instructors at Made With Love, a local scrapbook store in Singapore, where I share my experience with scrappers. Since I am also an avid book binder, I always love to use different binding techniques in my classes as well.
Maya Road had always played an important role in my scrapbooking works, be it layouts, albums or book binding projects. The possibilities are endless! I am so excited to be part of this great team, it is truly a great honor!
Hi, I am Belly Lau. I live with my husband, two kids, and my non-stop, expanding scrapbooking supplies, all in a tiny little flat in Hong Kong. I have been crafting since I was little; beading, cross stitch and quite a few kinds of other crafts, but found that scrapbooking and paper crafting has been the most interesting and rewarding as it allows me to preserve memories as well as create home decorations.
In 2010, I made my first ever album about a trip to Taipei with my son. I loved the creative process so much and have been bitten by the scrapbooking bug ever since. I am now a member of a paper manufacturer design team and I also run an online business selling scrapbook supplies and kits.
I am so excited and honoured to be one of the Maya Road Design Team. I love Maya Road products which are always gorgeous and easily integrate with other brand products. I look forward to showing you my creations soon.
Hi, I'm Jess Mutty and I live in Framingham, MA with my math genius husband, Ryan, 5 year old son, Owen, almost 3 year old, Lily, and three orange cats. I have a background in theatrical costume design but now spend my days herding my family and playing with craft supplies!
I've been artsy since childhood and have always needed an outlet for creativity but didn't start formally papercrafting until 2006 when the internet brought me a whole new knowledge of this wonderful artistic world. I haven't stopped creating since! I have been fortunate enough to have been published in most of the major scrapbooking publications, taught classes both online and locally, and served as a designer and coordinator for some amazing manufacturers.
I am beyond thrilled to be designing with Maya Road! The huge variety of fantastic versatile products keeps me consistently inspired and allows me to explore different styles and project types.
Hi! My name is Melody Rupple and I live in beautiful San Diego, California with my husband and our four daughters. I love to travel and take photos, and when I am not in my craft room my favorite place to be is walking on the beach.
I have been involved in something creative since my teens when I made simple scrapbooks and learned to sew. I continued to scrapbook for my girls, and once I discovered stamping, mixed media, and blogging I was hooked!
I have been fortunate to design for some fabulous companies, including My Favorite Things, Taylored Expression, and have been a guest designer for a number of other companies and challenge teams.
I love playing with embellishments and my stash is full of Maya Road products! I appreciate the variety and versatility of Maya Road and I am so excited and honored to be part of the Design Team.
My name is Yasmin Tölche, I'm a Norwegian girl born in 1980. Mom to three awesome boys, Felix, Collin and Finnley. I'm happily married to Kristian and together we live in a small mountain village in Kyrksæterøra, Norway with our Rottweiler, Penny. I'm a stay at home mom, doing postings online for a Norwegian scrapbook store and I do a bit of photography.
I started scrapbooking in 2005, discovered the hobby at a friend’s house and been doing it ever since! I love all paper related; doing cards, layouts, mini albums and paper projects. I'm a major scrapbook hoarder! Live, love, breathe paper crafts. In the later years I've been fortunate to be a part of several design teams and been published in some of the Scandinavian scrapbook magazines.
I'm so excited to be part of the Maya Road design team. I've loved Maya Road products for as long as I've been scrapbooking, they are unique and fantastic quality and are so versatile. I am beyond happy to be able to work with one of the major companies in the industry.
Again...a huge welcome to the latest additions of the Maya Road team! They are joining the rest of our extremely talented team. You can find all of our design team here at Maya Road.
