Guest Designers

The Paper Players Guest Designers, 2022



Hi, I'm Cindy Beach. I'm a long time crafter, stamp loving card maker, and card challenge junkie. My husband and I live in sunny North Carolina. After growing up together in Maryland and traveling throughout his army career we are happy to call this beautiful state home. As empty nesters we are fortunate to enjoy frequent visits from our adult children, their spouses, and our 4 - soon-to-be-5 grandchildren. I began my blog in 2007 but had been scrapbooking and stamping long before that. When I discovered Stampin' Up! card making became my only hobby and daily therapy. I was chosen to be on the 2012  Artisan Design Team for Stampin' Up! I had no idea how much this hobby would reward me with new friends and support, and wonderful opportunities to grow and share. Loving card challenges has been a great way to learn new techniques and be encouraged to use my supplies. I am thrilled and honored to be Guest Designing for The Paper Players. This has long been one of my favorite places to play!



Hello, I am Christy Stanford.  I started scrapbooking when I was in high school over 25 years ago and I have been a paper crafter ever since!  Thanks to my husband's career, we have lived in several places in the United States as well as Japan and Great Britain; we currently reside in Germany with our soon-to-be 5-year-old son Ryan.  I started my first blog when we moved to Japan so I could share pictures from our travels, and then when we moved to England I started my second blog just to share my cards and scrapbook pages.  I was introduced to stamping in 2004 and recently had my 15-year anniversary as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  I love to play along with challenges and I definitely need a bit of time each week playing with paper and ink to maintain my mental health.  Every time I crack open a new stamp set for the first time, or see a challenge and know I have the perfect stamps for it, I get a little thrill.  I am so excited to be a Guest Designer for the Paper Players!

Hi, my name is Jennie Maier and I’m excited to be a Guest Designer with The Paper Players in 2022! I live in southeast Wisconsin with my hubby, Steve. We are parents to three adult children, Megan, Abby and Max.  I’ve been a Stampin’ UP! demonstrator since 2007 and started my blog in 2009 but have been pretty crafty since my kids were young. I love to play with challenges, they really help bring me out of my comfort zone and help keep my creativity alive! When I’m not creating in my command center I love traveling, walking, playing pickleball and reading. I've been playing along with The Paper Players since 2016 and I really love The Paper Players challenges! I’m so honored and grateful to be part of this creative group in 2022!
