Amanda AJ Bodine

Hello, my name is AJ. I’m a native of the midwest, U.S., but relocated to the Carolinas years ago. I’m married to Rob and together we have a high school aged son and 2 spoiled rotten rescue dogs! I’ve always been a crafty person, but once introduced to stamping a few years back, papercrafting quickly became my favorite way to get creative! I love spending time in my studio, listening to podcasts and drinking a cup of tea while I color. As for other hobbies, I love to travel. In fact if I didn’t have so much stuff, I’d really prefer to wander over living in the same place. My life’s dream is to spend a year, visiting every minor and major league baseball field, taking in a game or two.

Deb Rauch 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 grandmom 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.

Josefine Josefine Fouarge

Hi, I’m Josefine. I was born in Germany but moved to the US about two years ago. I’m living with my husband and our little Rat Terrier in California. Both are very supportive of my hobby 🙂 I started crafting about the same time I came over here. I was bored while waiting for my Green Card, so I started watching YouTube videos and got hooked on cardmaking. Now I’m also interested in mixed media and art journaling. I’m super excited to be part of the Kat Scrappiness Design Team and can’t wait to share all the creations with you.

Though I have been crafting for a very long time but I got hooked on stamping and cardmaking once we moved to Singapore. I love to learn and explore new stamping techniques with watercoloring being my favorite right now. I also love to teach crafts.

Taniesa VlasakTaniesa Vlasak – Special Project Coordinator

Hi! My name is Taniesa Vlasak and I have been papercrafting 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, cardmaking and other papercrafting 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 as well as Honey Bee Stamps! You can visit me on my blog at and on Instagram (@Taniesa).
