Terri Sproul - Team Leader:

Terri Sproul is the producer of a DVD called "MasquePen Magic" to see more of her video check out her Youtube Channel at

She is a diverse and experienced designer, design team leader and instructor for multiple companies in the paper craft world including “Glue Dots®”, “Stewart Superior”, “Robin Nest”, “Sakura Hobby Craft” and “Viva Las Vegastamps!” to name a few. Terri and her husband Marc have the pleasure of living in San Diego County On top Of Palomar Mountain.

Becky Conley:

Becky is a retired Marine, mother of 2 and Nana to one, living in Southern Maine. She loves mixed media art, paper crafting, home decor, recycled crafting, actually: just about anything crafty. Learn more about Becky and see her work on her blog:

Peg Rounds:
I’m Peg Rounds and I am thrilled to be a part of The Robin’s Nest team. I am proud to say that I am wife to, Kevin, my best friend in the world and a stay home mom to our teenage age son who both are my biggest supporters of my hobby. When we are not spending family time together I am crafting. It has become a big part of my life. I am, also, a painter, but most of my craft time is spent on paper crafts. I enjoy reading, taking pictures and playing with our 2 dogs, too. When I’m not doing any of these things, I am chatting with friends on the message boards I belong to, on Facebook or I’m looking for a challenge on one of the boards to participate in because I love good challenges to make myself think and work outside my comfort zone. If you’d like to see more of what I create be sure to stop by my blog at

Gini Williams Cagle:
I have been crafting all of my life, in one form or another. I was a very successful bead artist (you can see my work on my blog -
> ). I had my work published in over a dozen books and magazines, and lectured and taught all over the country, beaded pieces took 500-1000 hours to complete. About 10 years ago, I started scrapbooking, when my first nephew was born. I instantly fell in love with the immediacy of the medium (compared to the crazy hours I spent beading!) In the past year or two, I have really gotten serious with the craft and love finding new ways to take my pieces to the next level. It's really funny to look at any of my work, from beadwork to paper and to be able to see the same style emerge, regardless of the medium. I have always loved dimension, and color and layers.
> Paper crafting is really a family thing for me. My sister and I love getting together at least once a week to craft - and of course, my five year old nephew wants in on the action as well! My husband doesn't ever craft with me, but he is my biggest cheerleader, and is always supportive of what I do. We have been married for two years. We have a fairytale romance - we knew each other in high school and were friends, but went over 20 years without any contact, and reconnected on Facebook and quickly knew we were meant to be together. I work as a dental hygienist, so creating with paper is always a welcomed release!

Irit Shalom: Guest Design Position
My name is Irit and I am an Israeli scrapper and crafter. In my real life I am a working dentist, a wife, mom of 4 and a very new grandma of one adorable baby boy. I scrapped here and there for a few years, but I have done it seriously for the last 2-3 years. During this time I’ve made some huge progress. I have been a Design Team member on more than a dozen challenge blogs and a guest designer on a dozen more. Currently I design for Best Creations USA paper company, Cheery Lynn Designs USA die company, Tando Creative British lazer cut company, Epyphany Crafts USA tool manufacturer and Scrap with V- Australian shop. For a year I was a staff member on SNR web magazine and I was and am published in all possible web magazines with a hope for a print ones. I mostly scrap, but I also love altered art and card making and I hope to show you all of them using Robin Nest fantastic products. My style is shabby/vintage, but sometimes I try to change it a bit to a clean and simple one and it is still messy and shabby. I am really thrilled to be a part of Robin Nest DT and I hope to show you the best of my work .

Jan Hennings
My name is Jan Hennings and I live in rural Iowa with my hubby and 4 teenagers. (We have 7 children and a few are off to college.) I’d describe my style as a lot of vintage and a little shabby. Altered Art and Home D├ęcor are my real passions and I enjoy some mixed media and card making. My strengths are teaching and sharing my passion with others. I’ve been teaching for the last 6 years and recently traveled to Winnipeg Canada to teach for a Company. I also teach at a local scrapbook store and Hobby Lobby. You’ll find my art in Somerset Life, Somerset Memories, Gallery, Somerset Studio Gallery, Art Doll Quarterly, Belle Armoire, Jewelry Affair and Stamp and Scrap magazines.

Clare Dempsey
Hello, my name is Clare Dempsey and I am married with 2 boys. I am one of 11 children, seven girls and four boys. I have a fashion design education and work history and started scrap booking 12 years ago. I love reading, sewing, scrap booking, card making, blogging, and designing files for my pages. I am addicted to craft gadgets including the Cricut, and love stamping and embellishing my projects. I prefer blog hoping over TV watching and love a paper crafting challenge.

Tenny Kusuma:

I live in Lincoln, Nebraska, with my husband of 5 years, Leo. Together, we have 2 wonderful and very active children, Dustin {4} and Phoebe {2}. I'm a stay at home mom during the day and a Home Health Caregiver by night.

Originally, I was born and raised in Indonesia. I came to the US about 11 years ago for College.

I’ve been crafting since I was in High School. I believe I got these crafty genes from my mom. I started scrapbooking in 2005 when still in College. I LOVE everything about scrapbooking, from finding the right pictures and matching papers and also decorate it. Scrapbooking has become an addiction, however I think Scrapbooking is my therapy. My husband is very supportive of my hobby. I also let my children to scrapbook with me. My children are my inspirations and motivations. I scrapbook their lives, because I want them to remember their beautiful childhoods.

Kristin Keller:
I am a work at home, homeschooling mom to 5 wonderful children. I am married to my best friend and soulmate, going on 12 years this August!
I have been papercrafting of some sort all my life, scrapbooking for the last 15 years, rubberstamping for about the last 12 years, and more recently, found altered much fun! I have developed this love of papercraft in each of my children, so it is very common for them all to be doing their own cards or project while I work on mine! I am super excited to be a part of The Robin's Nest DT! It is such an honor to be working with such awesome products, and very talented people. Looking forward to the next 6 month

Well that's is the team, amazing group of Artist, please stop by and leave them so love.
