Introducing.... the MayzyArt Design Team!!

Hey guys and gals,

I am very excited to introduce to you the very first MayzyArt Design Team.  I had so many amazing people apply, it was an extremely difficult decision.  I want to thank everyone who applied!!

And now, in no particular order, the MayzyArt Design Team...

Jo Ann

Hi everyone.  My name is Jo Ann and I am a happy Stay-at-home Mom to my son who's 6 years old and a wife to my husband, Joseph.  I was born and raised in the Philippines but after marriage, I came to San Antonio, Texas.   I love almost all kinds of crafting...Creating gives me a sense of fulfillment knowing that I give my best in everything I do.  After my son was born, I got into Scrapbooking to document my son’s growth.  Shortly after, I saw a magazine on Cardmaking and I was hooked.  I collected every tool available in the market, taught myself on different techniques and started giving only handmade cards to friends since 2007.  My biggest fan is my son who stays beside me each time I have a project.  I love it when he says,  “Mommy, you made the most beautiful card, ever!”  I love my family and thank God for them everyday…


Mom to two wonderful adults, and a house full of animals - two dogs and two cats. I started scrapbooking 14 years ago and love to learn new techniques.  When Copic markers first hit the market I resisted ( for a whole 2 months ), but temptation called and a new addiction bloomed!  I have completed both of the certification levels with Copic, and enjoy sharing my passion for coloring in classes and online.  When the opportunity came to join the design team at Mayzy Art stamps, I jumped at the chance to be part of an exciting new challenge blog, and am so excited to join the other dt members and be part of this new adventure. 


I have been rubber stamping since 1994 and started using digi stamps sometime in 2010. I love working with them. I mainly color with Copics but will break out my colored pencils and even my watercolors once in a while. I love coloring and designing cards. I am married to my husband of almost 30 years who supports my paper crafting addiction and just smiles about all the stuff *cough* I mean supplies I have. I am so excited to be part of Mayzy Arts design team and hope to inspire many.


Hi!  My name is Darlene Lyons and I live in Ayr, Ontario.  I am a SAHM blessed with two beautiful girls Abigail and Hailey and a wonderful supportive husband Todd, who gets the addict I've become since being introduced to scrapbooking five years ago.  After having my girls, I needed some "me time" so I dabbled in all types of paper crafting, and loved spending time with others who share the same passion for it.  After spending more time at the table than my girls colouring, I needed to find an adult excuse to colour, which I found in Copics!!  The only thing I like more than creating is buying the things "I need" to create!  LOL  With the encouragement of some close friends, I started a blog at the end of this past year and haven't looked back once.

My name is Lisa and I live in Leicestershire in the UK with my husband and little pooch. I have been making cards since January 2010 and love everything about it. I don’t think I could ever get bored of making card and tags. My card making style is clean and simple. I’m not a big fan of using a lot of embellishments on my cards. I am, however, I huge fan of patterned papers and I love to colour my stamped images!

I didn't have a creative bone in my body until I decided I needed something keep me out of the cookie jar.  Short story even shorter...I found card making in March of 2010 and a few months later discovered copics and that's all she wrote...full blown addict to all things copic, paper, digital stamps and rubber stamps! I didn't get brave enough to start blogging and showing other crafters my work until last June, but I'm so happy I took that leap and discovered the world of blogging. I live in the beautiful Rocky Mountain state of Colorado though I'm a born a bred Midwesterner.  I hope everyone will enjoy playing along with us and will enjoy these amazing digis even more.
