Speedy Fox Featured Designer - Kathy Bradley










Hi, my name is Kathy Bradley and I am a proud member of the Senior Design Team and Tutorial Time Team for Mark’s Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.  I live in a small town northeast of Springfield, Illinois and I am happily married to the love of my life.  I have one handsome and charming son, a lovely daughter-in-law and a very cute (almost) 16 year old grandson.  I retired in November of 2009 – organized my closets by color (I know); drawers, etc., etc., In January of 2010, a lawyer friend that I previously worked with - called and asked me if I would like to work 3 hours a day – 3 days a week.  Well, having organized everything I could get my hands on – I said yes.  So, now, I’m still retired from full-time work, but have a little part-time job 8-9 hours each week – I know that’s not much work – but it gets me into Springfield 3 mornings each week and I run my errands, shop, etc.  I began scrapbooking in 2007 and making cards in 2008 and I’ve been on the journey ever since.  I continue to learn from the challenges, techniques and blogs I visit.  I’ve made so many wonderful friends during this journey and hope that I continue on this path for a long time – making friends and learning!

Be sure to check out Kathy's blog Entering Kathyville for some great inspiration and beautiful creations. This week Kathy created a Beginner Copic coloring tutorial for us. You can find it on SpeedyTV. If you are not a member of SpeedyTV no worries join today it is FREE!!!!

Be sure to come back next week for another great tutorial from our Featured Designer Lois.

Speedy Fox Featured Designer - Debbie Moran










I live in Kenosha, WI. I have been a part of the Mark’s Finest Papers family since August of 2011 I started stamping in 2004. I took a 5 year hiatus until I met a great woman, Chrissy D, who was also a part of  the design team. She got me back into stamping and even helped me set up my blog. I began stamping when a group of ladies took me to a stamp camp for another stamping company back in 2004. I enjoyed myself so much I was hooked. I stamped for awhile and then along came my three beautiful girls (5,4and 2), which put stamping in the backseat along with so many other things. Now that they are getting a little older I have found my love for stamping again. I also enjoy scrapbooking which I don’t seem to have as much time for.  I am married to a wonderful man that I met when I was working for Domino’s Pizza. I always joked with my drivers )which he was one of) that I was going to marry Liam, and 3 years later we were married. Since I have been back into the stamping scene I have been striving to step it up a bit so I am always wanting to learn new techniques and folds. You will be seeing all that I learn not only on the blog hops but on my blog as well. I am on all four of Mark’s Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co design teams and coordinate two of them. SpeedyTV is my baby and work to make if more fun and exciting for all the members. I help out with a lot of the administrative duties for the company and work hand in hand with Amanda and Patty coordinating the teams. I love working for Mark’s Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co and look forward to many more years designing for the company.

Check out Debbie's Blog Designing with Debbie and give her some love. Debbie created a new tutorial for us called Star of David Card.  .

Be sure to stop by next week for another great tutorial with the Featured Designer. Kathy Bradley will be showing us how to use Copic Markers.
