Maria Russell – (Returning Full Time Designer)

Maria Russell

I am married to an amazing husband, with two beautiful and talented kids.

I am an interior designer by trade but I love to craft. I ventured into paper crafting (and stamping) 2 years ago and got immediately hooked.

I love making cards but I also love creating 3D projects and scrapbooking.

  Mona Leonard (Returning Full Time Designer)

I am a mother of two grown boys. I have always loved crafting, as long as I can remember. I love spending all my spare time in my craft room (my little heaven) There are not many crafts that I haven’t tried.  I love doing anything with my hands.

Art journaling and card making is my new favourite at this time.  I also love making new crafty friends and learning new techniques.

Taniesa Vlasak (Returning Part Time Designer)

Taniesa Vlasak

Hi! My name is Taniesa Vlasak and I have been paper crafting since I was a little girl. What began as a sticker, stamp, and stationery obsession at just 7 years old grew into a love of scrapbooking, art journaling, card making and other paper crafting fun! There is nothing like playing with new art supplies and I get so excited now as I did back then.We have recently moved from California to Washington state and with the wetter weather outside is the perfect excuse for more crafty time inside!

I am incredibly blessed to be designing for Kat Scrappiness!


Jess Gerstner (New Part Time Designer)

My name is Jess, aka JessCrafts. I have been paper crafting for about 15 years. I love my day job as an elementary school teacher, but I also love teaching people crafting. I regularly share crafting tutorials on my JessCrafts YouTube channel. My style is clean and cute. I love bright colors, rainbows, and playing with new techniques. I can’t wait to share fun tutorials featuring Kat Scrappiness products!

Hannah Rubenstahl (New Full Time Designer)

Hannah Rubenstahl, crafter at Fanciful Spaces, is mother to a lovely 5-year-old girl and wife to an amazingly supportive husband. She is a life-long crafter who has recently begun to focus on, and hone her talents, in the world of card crafting. Using the skills she learned as a scenic artist, and in her formal education in technical theater, she comes to the world of paper crafting with unique experience and perspective. When not crafting or playing Paw
Patrol with her daughter, she can frequently be found playing board games and watching Star Trek. Captain James Tiberius Kirk is her future husband.

Heidi Randazzo (New Full Time Designer)

My love of papercrafting began over 10 years ago creating scrapbooks for birthdays and fun events. Then, one day, I picked up a cardmaking magazine and fell in love With all the creative options stamps and dies had to offer.  I find inspiration for my cards in all kinds of interesting places and I’m so excited to be a part of the
Kat Scrappiness design team!

Deb Rauch – (Design Team Manager)

Hi! I’m Deb Rauch. I am a retired nurse, mother of two grown boys, and have been married to my best friend for 33 years.

My grand mom taught me to sew when I was 8 years old on her old treadle sewing machine. Throughout the years, I’ve continued to sew and got into other types of crafting.

About 15 years ago, I got hooked on scrapbooking, and about two years ago cardmaking.
