Announcing the 2012-2013 Zutter Zisters!!!!!!!

Please welcome our NEW Zutter Zisters!!! We are so excited to show you what these fabulous designers have to offer--classes, tutorials, and ideas galore!!!!!!!!! 

My name is Cheryl Boglioli and I am a Florida native, wife, and mother of one beautiful daughter.   I am a paper crafter, mixed media artist, and teacher and I even dabble in a little photography.  I love to stay on the cutting edge of new products, techniques, and technology as it pertains to the crafting industry.  With a background in graphic design, I have spent the last few years creating an artistic resume.  I achieved CHA Designer Member status in 2011 and in 2012 became a full-time designer and educator traveling across the country teaching workshops at local scrapbook stores and events.  I currently work with several manufacturers in the industry including Tattered Angels, Basically Bare, and Helmar and now I’m super excited to be a Zutter Zister.  

Hello, My name is Candice Elliott. I am a mother of three precious little ones, wife, and lover of all things art.  My place of residence is Reseda, CA but I was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV. I am pretty much a low key down to earth kind of person who on occasion gets her head stuck in the clouds.  My love of art has always been from the stories my mother tells me and they always make me smile. Drawing was my first love but after my first child was born 7 years ago I turned to scrapbooking. I had subscribed to a scrapbook magazine just to see something different.I tried it and now it is permanent part of my life.  Aside from scrapbooking I love singing, drawing still on occasion, writing songs, taking tons of pictures, and a little painting. All in all life as a whole is a huge canvas to me taking in what I see and making the most of it. I strive to create a masterpiece that will not only fulfill myself within but inspire my family and others to do the same.

Hello there, my name is Michelle Gutierrez and I am from Southern California. I am married, and a Mom to 4 boys (5 including hubby). My scrapbook journey began about 14 years ago when my sister-in-law Monica invited me to a stamping party. I was instantly hooked, and signed up to be a hostess to demo and sell the stamps. The funny thing was that I was my best customer, imagine that!....LOL

I soon "discovered" scrapbook stores, REALLY? Talk about major addiction, I had to have every new thing that came out and every tool. It got so bad that I did not care if I had old clothes, as long as I owned the latest and great scrapbook product, who cared!.......I know tons of you, if not hundreds, can relate to my story, and even some confessing to own so much product that they can open their own scrapbook store. I am comforted in  knowing that I was not know who you are! 

Soon after I ventured into teaching at scrapbook stores. My journey began in San Dimas, CA to Clovis, CA and still teaching in Covina CA,  and I absolutely love it 100%......I feel very blessed to be able to share and teach all that I have learned through all my years in crafting. I also used to be an ambassador for Provocraft teaching their products at several retail locations. And most recently completed a room makeover for my niece Alexis using the Cricut Mini that is featured in their new infomercial...... that was an experience that I will always cherish with my niece and family members. 

I am happy to say that this is my first manufacture design team that I had been chosen for, and to say that I am supper excited would be an understatement! My hope is to be able to contribute to the Bind It All team in the best and only way I know how, but being able to inspire you along the way.

Hi it's just me Pinky! Otherwise known as Cristal, mom, wife, chicken whisperer. 
I am your average ordinary pink haired crafter who loves to play with paper and glue. 
I love anything altered and using all different mediums. 
I love scrapbooking and paper crafts because it all comes from the same place....the heart. 
Anything that comes from your heart is amazing and beautiful, from the most simple card to the most elaborate creation, it is all art in my eyes.  I hope to inspire you to create to your hearts content.  You can find me all over the place from TV to online classes and even at your local scrap store.  I hope to see more of you too!

Hi, I am Nancy aka homesclscrapper.  I have been married to the love of my life for 19 years and am a stay at home/homeschooling mom to three older children (ages 10, 13 and 16) in Northern California.  Paper crafting is my main hobby, but I also enjoy needlework, knitting, and gardening.  My scrapbooking style is somewhat eclectic varying based on the products I am using, the photos, and the recipient of the finished product although I tend to gravitate to a more shabby look.  When not schooling or crafting, I spend a lot of my time with my children attending swim meets and scouting events.

I am a Momma to 3 daughters, ages 17, 12, and 10, and the wife to my best friend from college. I am a classically trained soprano, and sang as an opera singer professionally before deciding to focus on my family (I've never regretted that decision). I do sing locally, and hold a part time job as a church soloist and section leader. I also hold another part time job as a librarian. Other than my paper and mixed media crafting hobbies, I enjoy photography, gardening, swimming, sewing, embroidery, and antiquing and thrifting.  As far as my obsession with paper and mixed media art goes,I love to create projects that are very artsy, creative, eclectic, and unique. I believe in staying true to my style, because for me, the time I spend creating projects in my studio is therapeutic, and a form of self-expression....the joy is very much in the process. 

My name is Nicole Martel.  Currently, I work for a credit union. I live in CrownsvilleMD with my husband of 8 years. We have been together for 13 years! We have a beautiful son named Edward Zane who we love to pieces. We have a dog named Daisy a cat named Scarlet. I have been scrapping since January 2002 and have been published in Creating Keepsakes Magazine, Scrapbook Trends, Scrapbooking & Beyond and Scrapbooking Memories Magazine. I am so honored to be apart of this fabulous team! I love creating mini albums for my friends and family and I am looking forward to inspiring you!

Hi I'm Heather a complete paper crafting addict living in the dusty High Desert of Southern California. I am a wife to my handsome hubby of 10 years and the mom of two busy kiddos. I started scrapbooking 8 years ago and have been hooked ever since. I absolutely adore vintage papers, hidden pockets, and one of a kind trinkets to add to my albums. Crafting is absolutely  a part of who I am and I am thrilled to share it with others! 

Hello!  I’m a Southern girl from Alabama.  I work full time as an audit manager.  I’m always inspired by things around me and make time each day for in the motto to “find inspiration everyday everywhere”.  It’s funny that when I’m not creating I’m usually jotting down ideas/sketches/pinning on Pinterest color ideas and patterns for creations later once back in my art room.  Since scrapbooking 15+ years ago, I've been addicted since the beginning.  I have a strong passion for life art, lots of creative spirit, and fearless in working with new products and techniques. My style would be defined as very versatile in delivering lots of details, mostly in mini books, and blending the old + new + typically adding stamping always in the mix.  
Within my blog, ScrapNspire (, I share life, art ideas, what inspires me through fashion, a vintage touch & eclectic touch along with techniques, tutorials, and projects. I live through quotes, optimism, and positive vibes which are reflected in my blog too.
Aside from Zutter, I'm currently on the design teams for Bella Blvd, Simple Stories, Want2Scrap, and Hampton Art.  Past design teams include Gauche Alchemy, Donna Salazar Designs, myStampBOX, Sausan Designs (German Art Stamps), Creative Imaginations (Danelle Johnson), Memory Works and a staffer for Scrapbook News & Review Magazine.  
I’ve been published several times in Scrapbook Trends: Mini Albums, Scrapbook Trends: Cards, Scrapbook Trends: Simply Handmade, ScrapStreet Magazine Online Ezine, and Scrapbook News & Review Magazine.  Also, I’ve taught scrapbook classes nationally (including CKC and Scrapbook Expo) and internationally in Germany for retreats & local scrapbook stores.

Jennifer has been involved in the papercrafting community for over 12 years. She lives in the High Desert of California with her supportive {and sometimes scrappy} husband, two kids, and two dogs. For the past 9 years, Jennifer has been teaching papercrafting classes at events, charity crops, and local retailers as well as online through My Creative Classroom. A love of sharing, a passion for teaching, and a happy, whimsical design style drive Jennifer's creative endeavors and characterize her work. A potpourri of styles from across the spectrum, Jennifer's work always includes a bit of humor and fantasy, a touch of the unexpected. Jennifer mixes her passion to try new things, push the envelope, and experiment with her affinity for techniques that are quick, affordable, and accessible by others. Her outlook on crafting is that it is a continual learning process, with every crafter at a different place in their crafty journey, each of us learning from one another. She loves the community that naturally develops when crafters share with one another and is excited to be a part of that connection. Being able to share her passion about papercrafting with others is Jennifer's dream job and she is thankful for every moment she's been able to spend "working" at it. Jennifer has represented multiple manufacturers as an educator and design team member as well as social media consultant and coordinator for several brands. In 2007, Jennifer launched Hydrangea Hippo, promoting the etsy shop and companion blog solely online through social marketing, As a result of her efforts and techniques, her sales have doubled each year since opening and her advice on marketing is sought by colleagues regularly. Jennifer founded HippoMedia in March 2012 to further her work in social media by networking with, coaching, and managing programs for designers & crafters, indie businesses, and craft manufacturers. She's been fortunate enough to have had her work published in top publications and books and is a Designer Member of the Craft and Hobby Association. When she's not papercrafting, Jennifer enjoys gardening, visiting local crafts fairs, watching reality shows on Bravo, and taking touristy day trips around California with her family. Jennifer is also an Army veteran, volunteer for local charities and dedicated mom and wife.
