Stephanie Muzzulin

Hi My name is Stephanie Muzzulin. I live in a small town in Northwest CT with my husband Seamus,my daughter Mackenzie and son Codey. 

I started papercrafting about 8 years ago it all started out with me making baby shower invites for a friend and I have been hooked ever since!! I have been published a few times in Paper Crafts Magazine and CARDS I also have had the pleasure of working for some amazing companies through out the years such as Market Street Stamps, Sweet Stamp Shop,There She Goes stamps and Unity Stamp Company.  

I think one of my favorite things about this hobby has been meeting some amazing talented ladies and being able to share my work on my blog Handmade Creations By Stephanie. I love to get my inspiration form challenge blogs so I really do look forward to being a part of the Merry Monday Challenge.

Loll Thompson

Hi everyone.  I am thrilled to be a member of the Design Team for Merry Monday.

Here’s a little bit about me - I’m a wife, and mother to two adult sons and just welcomed a beautiful daughter-in-law into the family.  I’ve been retired for five years and try to spend time each day creating cards and/or posting on my blog, Stamping with Loll.  I have always loved crafts of all kinds, but I am totally addicted to paper crafting.  There are so many techniques and ways to stamp so I am always learning something new.  I frequently participate in card-making challenges and have made friends with many wonderful people who share the same passion. 

My favorite cards to make are Christmas cards, so I am so happy to be creating them each week and hope you are inspired to join along in the challenges at Merry Monday.

I want to thank Lesley for giving me this opportunity to work with her and the rest of the Design Team.
