Taylor Golzbein – Social Media Manager

Taylor Golzbein

My name is Taylor Golzbein and I live in South Florida. I’m a proud dog mom to my lovely fur baby Sophie. I have been an avid planner for almost 4 years now and have loved every minute of it. I enjoy advertising as well as social media and I’m so excited to be promoting Kat Scrappiness and working with such a wonderfully talented team!

  Jess Gerstner


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!

 Tina Gui Gui DornBaum

Hello, my name is Tina and I am a graphic artist/designer.  I am married and have a son who is all grown up. I needed something to do with my spare time so one day while surfing the net I landed on a website for crafting. In 2008 I took my first card class and never looked back.  I am always trying out new techniques so my style is always evolving, however, one thing never changes…I love to fill my page.  I am super excited to be on the Kat Scrappiness Design Team and share my projects with you.

Caren Bartholomew

Hi, my name is Caren Bartholomew.  I’ve been creating cards off and on for about 20 years.  Ten years ago, I was able to set up a dedicated craft room and have been nonstop card creating since!  My style is clean and simple, and I love cute and punny.  I like to try new techniques and occasionally dabble in other crafts.  I can’t wait to create and share Kat Scrappiness products

Lisa Golzbein – Instagram Manager and Designer

Hi my name is Lisa and I live in sunny South Florida and I am known as “mom” to three wonderful children and three fur babies. I am also a Registered Nurse in a NICU where I take care of the most precious babies on Earth. I have been a paper crafter for over ten years and I enjoy all types of DIY projects. I used to design custom invitations and announcements which led to scrapbooking which ultimately led to card making. My favorite of all is card making and I spend most of my very little spare time creating my “OhSoCute” projects. I am very excited to be designing for Kat Scrappiness!

Priscilla Joseph

Priscilla Joseph

All of us here at Kat Scrappiness are excited to introduce you to Priscilla Joseph who is our newest designer.  Here is a little more about Priscilla:

“I’m a New England girl who now lives in the Chicago area, with a yearning to retire to southern California. I currently teach middle school and plan to retire someday to pursue my passion for card making full-time

I love black coffee and white wine but counterbalanced by a healthy eating lifestyle. When not teaching (which is pretty time consuming), my husband and I travel all over the country . . .  from spring and summer break trips to the west coast or quick visits back home to the east coast. Finding time to cuddle up with a good book can be challenging — “chick-lit” and mysteries are often treasured reading on a flight to somewhere.

My first back-to-the-working-world job after my two sons started school was in corporate marketing management and writing for a high-tech company in Massachusetts. It was during that time period when I attended my first “Stampin’ Up!” party one evening in 2002. I didn’t realize then that the world of stamps, inks, and cards even existed! I was hooked immediately!

Years later, I moved to the Chicago area and made a major mid-life career change. I went back to school to earn my master’s in education and began teaching middle school Language Arts and Social Studies. Initially my passion for card making had to be pushed aside as I focused on being a dedicated teacher. But within the last five years, it has returned, and as my teaching career begins to wind down, my obsession is steering my journey into retirement. 

I have branched out from buying and using only “Stampin’Up!” products to dabbling in inks, paints, stamps & card stock from a multitude of favorite on-line retailers. When I am designing my cards, I always try to direct my creatives juices in a direction I have not seen done yet. I’m not sure if I could categorize my “style” . . . some cards are clean & simple; others a little more bold and busy.

Please join me in my new journey as I play with stamps, ink, paint & paper . . .  one project at a time.”

Mona Leonard

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.

I will be behind the scenes, working with our talented designers and Kat, to bring you exciting new projects and promotions using the lastest Kat Scrappiness line of products.

Maria Russell – Design Team Manager


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.
