AngelAngel Rivera

Hi, my name is Angel Rivera. I’ve been a card maker since 2006 but started scrap booking before that, back when it was all about the stickers and decorative-edged scissors! Lol!  I live in Oklahoma with my hubby of almost 22 years and our 3 boys (18, 15 and 13).  I also work full time, so crafting helps keep me sane with such a busy household!  I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the Birch Press Design team!

Laurie - Winter2015copyLaurie Schmidlin

Hi!  I’m Laurie, a wife to my Swiss husband, mother to our five children, and lover of all things crafty!  We live on a cattle ranch in rural Montana, an hour away from the nearest small town.  When I am not in my craft room, you will most likely find me spending time with my family, enjoying the gorgeous Montana “Big Sky”, hiking, riding horses, helping out on the ranch, or with my nose buried in a book.  I was introduced to the world of card making and stamping about 20 years ago and I have been smitten ever since!  I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of the Birch Press design team and can’t wait to share my creations with you!

Tracey McNeely

Hi, I’m Tracey McNeely! I’m a Canadian girl that lives in the beautiful Muskoka’s of Ontario . I taught high school for 18 years before my MS made it too difficult for me to continue, so I left my job and became a stay at home mom . I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 25 years  and we have two fabulous kids Ben who is 21 and Brooklyn, 19. We are empty nesters now as both kids are away at University. I have always enjoyed crafts and I have been making handmade cards and scrapbooking since I was in my teens. My craft of choice now is playing with paper, stamps and dies! I am so excited to start my journey with the new Birch Press Design Team and I hope that I am able to inspire you to try something new along the way.

Jeanne Jachna

Hi! I’m Jeanne!  I’m a married, stay at home mom of two young adults and one very active Akita puppy.  I live in Northwest Indiana near Chicago.  I like to read, garden, and cook, but I have been completely captivated with paper crafting.  I can’t resist a new set of stamps, dies for every occasion, bling and colorful inks and paper!  My time crafting is a sweet escape and a fun way to express myself.  I’m so excited to share my creations with you!
