Annie Kelly

Owner / Designer 

I am the owner and designer here at Stamp Anniething. I have been crafting for as long as I can remember (earliest memory is making my Barbie her own clothes!). I have always enjoyed doodling and coloring and I actually still buy and collect coloring books! When I decided to create this brand at Stamp Anniething, I wanted the chibi images to be relevant, diverse and inclusive. With their sweet faces, clothing and personalities I wanted them to create a personal connection with our customers.  I have always enjoyed coloring hair the most, so I wanted to design images that were large enough to have lots of  hair to color! I was born and raised in South Florida, and I am happily married to my best friend and we have 2 amazing young adult sons and three furbabies! I’m always designing and trying out new ideas and adventures in the crafting world. I am happiest meeting and interacting with our fans and hearing how Stamp Anniething has become part of their lives. Thank you for your interest in our brand. My goal is to   continue to grow and create wonderful products and images that will bring you all  joy and happiness in all you create.

I love to create!! I spend a lot of my time in life "creating things". I am a dance teacher and a fitness instructor. Both of those areas give me plenty of creative opportunities specifically in the creative movement arena. However, there is something about "color" that catches my eye and inspires me to create in a different arena which is my crafting side. I have delved into all sorts of different crafts since I was young - paper crafts, crochet, sewing, latch hook, cross stitch and quilting. Paper crafting has been my hands down favorite of the crafts!! When I was pregnant with my oldest child I found stamping and card making after attending a home party. That grew into scrapbooking which turned into getting my first Cricut which led me eventually to Copic markers. I started a blog and began to design for different companies. In July of 2017 I was chosen as a guest designer for Stamp Anniething. I was so excited (and a bit nervous too) to get to design and work with Ann and her incredibly talented Design Team. After my guest term was up I was invited to stay on and I have been working with Stamp Anniething ever since!! I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to work with this company and to grow and be challenged in my creativity. Ann is incredibly talented and I love all the different images and products she creates. Outside of my craft and work life I am also a mother and wife. I have three daughters, two son in laws, one dog, one "grand"dog (who I watch daily) and a supportive husband that puts up with all of the chaos.

I’m from Waterloo Ontario Canada. My day job is a business owner and professional pet groomer in which I used to competed professionally. One of the highlights for me was being awarded the Cardinal Crystal International Groomer Of The Year back in 2014. As I stepped back from competing I fell into the amazing world of card making by complete accident and never looked back. In 2017 I earned my Copic certification and shortly after that found Stamp Anniething. I instantly fell in love with the stamps and was honoured to join the Design Team in the summer of 2017. My card creations have been featured in Scrapbook and Cards Today and Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. I love sharing my passion for Copic markers and Stamp Anniething stamps.

I live in Gilbert, Arizona, with my husband and our three amazing kiddos. I graduated from Arizona State University with my Bachelor's degree in Fine Art Painting while working as a retail manager to pay my way through art school. While going to school I fell in love with Bollywood movies, Bollywood dancing, and tribal Bellydance. I started taking classes and eventually became a member of a Bollywood dance competition team. I was so honored to have the opportunity to perform across the country with my dance troupe Boom Boom Bollywood. This love for other cultures and dance had a huge impact on me, and shows up many times in my art. After having my kiddos I became a stay at home Mom. In between taking care of my kids, I started crafting, card making, and scrapbooking as a creative outlet, and also to record all those precious memories. I have always been creative, and love expressing myself through vibrant color choices. I love to use Copic Markers, Distress Inks, and Watercolors in my artwork. I also love teaching others, and helping them become more confident in their own artistic expressions. I have followed Stamp Anniething from the very beginning, and even own some of the very first stamps Ann created. I have always dreamed of being a part of the Stamp Anniething team, and that dream finally came true August of last year. I am beyond grateful and honored to be a part of such an amazing and talented team. Creating with Stamp Anniething products brings me so much joy, and truly inspires my creativity!

Kevin Beck 

Marketing Director

I live in Waterloo Ontario, with Stephen and our three miniature poodles. I was introduced to Stamp Anniething through Stephen when he joined her design team. I actually went to collage for Business Management and Marketing before I became a hairstylist, so I started to put my education to work and started to help Stamp Anniething in a part time capacity in October of 2019. With the success of my part time assistances I made a big life changing decision. Therefore as of August 18th 2020 I retired from 20 years of hairstyling and then made the leap to working for Ann full time. I’m now the Marketing Director of  Stamp Anniething. A decision I wish I had made sooner. I love Stamp Anniething and the entire stamping and crafting community. It has been wonderful getting to know all our faithful F’Annies. My goal is to continue to work hard for all of our Stamp Anniething customers to make sure we always deliver nothing but the very best in quality products and excellent customer service and care.

Hello my name is Waleska Galindo. I live in the beautiful Guatemala City, Central America and I am probably the only stamper around here. I have a wonderful and supportive husband and 2 full of energy kids Ian is 12 and Leah is 10. I have always loved art and making things with my hands, I remember loving the smell of a new color pencil box, and enjoying painting and drawing things When I finally could express myself as a designer and artist was when I studied Graphic Design.... I loved every part of it. I then became a Mother and a Wife and to tell you the truth it was hard at the beginning to put all my artistic self aside but soon after I was expecting my second child, I remember looking for something to do artistically at home and I found some youtube videos of cardmaking… and the rest is history. I fell in love with cardmaking 7 years ago, I think I just enjoy the process of being creative, coloring and using all kinds of different medias, Cardmaking just fits me perfectly. I am a very passionate in all I do and stamping and cardmaking are not the exception. I love making scene cards, create cards with bright colors and use stamps in creative ways. I found Stamp Anniething through a dear friend (you know who you are) and I remember admiring and being amazed by everything the Design Team would post and dreaming one day I wanted to Design for Stamp Anniething and now here I am reaching that Dream! Wow not to bad for 2020!! Besides cardmaking I am also a Fashion Designer, Movie lover and Stamp Collector... You can find me blogging at craftinglovew.blogspot.com but I mostly share my cards on my Instagram https://www.instagram.com/craftinglovew/ I am so excited to be here and I have tons of ideas to share with you using the cutest stamps in the world Stamp Anniething Stamps!!

I live in Elk Grove, California which is a suburb of Sacramento with my husband and daughter who is attending college. I have a grown son who lives and works in Southern California. I have lived in California all my life. I am retired from state service where I was an information technology project and contracts manager. 

 

I have done some sort of crafting all my life, but got into paper crafts about ten years ago with some friends from church.  We make Asian-inspired cards to sell at the Sacramento Japanese Film Festival and donate the proceeds. We also make cards and donate them to the Cards for Soldiers Program.  Besides paper crafts, I also enjoy making jewelry and using vinyl to make t-shirts, towels, signs, and other decorative items. 

 

I have been a F’Annie since 2018.  I was looking for cute chibi stamps and found Stamp Anniething. What an honor it was when Annie asked me to be a guest designer in July 2020! I enjoy coloring and using a variety of different mediums: alcohol markers, colored pencils, and watercolor pens, to name a few. I also love using my Silhouette Cameo for creating die cuts. I love sharing my projects to inspire others!

I live in the Chicago suburbs with my husband and our fur-child, Duke (he’s an 85 pound pitbull, so he’s not that little)! I’ve always felt a knack in being creative with crafting, and my real love for paper crafting began when I was in college. I held a job as a Resident Advisor, and I had to create Door Decorations and Bulletin Boards for my building, and I enjoyed thinking outside of the box to make each project better than the next.
 
My love for stamping started in 2016 with 2 rubber stamps and 1 ink pad, and has since evolved into a full-time obsession! I am predominantly a card maker, who also loves to emphasize envelope usage as part of my personal style. I love coloring with my Copic Markers and blending up ombré backgrounds with my blending brushes as well!
 
Outside from crafting and creating, I love spending time in the kitchen cooking and baking, traveling with my husband, and getting cozy on the house with a good movie!

Annabel Haines

Design Team

 

Hi! My name is Annabel. I was always the kid that was happy with a pen and a piece of paper, (It was much cheaper to entertain children in a world before Ipads). I would badger my family to name random things for me to draw and have, ever since, spent my life observing things in detail so I could draw and colour them from memory later. My colouring odyssey started with oil pastels and I wind-milled through many mediums (not supernaturally) until I hit on Polychromo pencils. I really hope to keep discovering new things to learn, being creatively stagnant fills me with anxiety. 

  

I’ve always been interested in wool crafts too, though I am an abysmal crocheter/ hooker, a very novice needle felter/ stabber and a randomly tense knitter/ knotter.   About ten years ago I began to make (far too many) knitted potato-sack-shaped cats to sell a craft fairs. However, my artwork sold better than my knitwork and I found myself needing to colour far more than knit. Whilst I quit doing fairs, outdoor events with horizontal sleet eventually put me off, I made a lot of good friends during this period of my crafty life, and these friends pushed me to embrace being a colourist. 

  

My 2021 year’s resolution was to win at doing videos, live or recorded and I am so excited that this part of my evolution (think craftsy pokemon) has coincided with joining the Stamp Anniething Team!  I actually have a film degree, maybe it will finally be useful? Lol. 

  

I create from very green and rural Shropshire in the UK. Time zones constantly baffle me. I used to fit all my craft stash in one plastic tub behind my sofa, now I'm a full time crafter with a very full craft room - Konmari just doesn’t seem to understand the problems of craft hoarding! I will always have too many projects in my “to do” pile, I want to try ALL THE THINGS and I’ll get to them eventually.
