Our Design Team

Robin - Co-Owner
Hi! My name is Robin.
I live in rural PA with my wonderful husband and 2 beautiful daughters. I have always done some type of craft or art for as long as I can remember. About 10 years ago, I discovered paper crafting and stamping and found my passion! I love to share ideas with other people who create. I hope that this blog inspires you all to play with your craft supplies more.
I just know we are going to have tons of fun here at The Pink Elephant!

Tina - Design Team
Hello! I'm so blessed to be part of this team. I am an Army wife to my awesome husband of almost 10 years. I am a stay at home-schooling mom to my 2 loves, C & I. I became really involved in scrapping last spring when a friend introduced me to digi scrapping. After this I stumbled upon a cardmaking blog that so inspired me, I took the dive into cardmaking. I love all aspects of this art and am always yearning to learn more. I look forward to being inspired by what all you create and hope you can do the same.

Ann - Design Team
Hello everyone…

My name is Ann Cutts, which is a pretty good name for someone who loves chopping into paper as much as I do! I am 52 years old and have spent at least 50 of those years being creative in some way. I've tried out many different crafts, but eventually I found the wonderful world of rubber stamping and paper craft. Since then I've never had any money, but I can usually be found sat happily in my craft room surrounded by a mountain of craft stuff.

I live in a small town in the North of England with my two grown up daughters who I am enormously proud of for so many reasons. I was happily married for seventeen years, but sadly my husband died nine years ago. I still love him and miss him badly.

I am so excited to be involved in the start of this new challenge blog. I’m really looking forward to the challenges ahead and hopefully meeting many new friends alongside having lots of fun.

Carol - Design Team
My name is Carol Houghton and I live in the U.K. I have been married
to my wonderful husband for 27 years and we have three grown up
children. I adore animals and we are lucky to have several rescued
pets in our home and garden!!

I have always had a love of being creative and have dabbled in many
things over the years. My love of paper, embellishments and rubber
stamps has now taken over. I run a class at a local church and have
now encouraged lots of ladies to share my passion. I am longing for
retirement day so I can spend all my days knee deep in paper!!

I hope during my time spent at The Pink Elephant, I will inspire you
in some way........

Trudi - Design Team
Hi, I'm Trudi Wilbur & I'm from Central WI. I have been married to
my wonderful husband for just over 3 years and we just have 1 furbaby,
a 12 year old chocolate lab, Amber. Besides paper crafting I also love
flower gardening and snowmobiling. I work full time for a small
company, I also teach classes at my local scrapbook store and Im the
secretary of our snowmobile club. My favorite scrapping tool to use is
my cuttlebug with all the neat embossing folder and various company's
cutting dies.
