Jen Chesnick – United States
Hi my name is Jen Chesnick, I go by Chez too. Currently I live in the great state of Maryland with my husband Bill, my daughter Parker and my bonus daughter Tori. I sell cheese and crackers by day for Mondelez International and by night I craft, scrapbook, obsess over Pinterest & Facebook. Not only am I a social media addict I watch almost all reality TV it’s quite ridiculous. When I am not cooped up in the house I like to travel, and don’t be shocked but I love to camp. As long as I have wi-fi and a power strip all is well in the world. I started scrapbooking in 2006 after seeing one of my mother’s scrapbooks. I’ve always been a pretty crafty gal. Some of my favorite childhood memories are of making crafts in Girl Scouts and patching together random fabric pieces making clothes. Paper crafting has turned into a full on obsession.
Mary-Ann Maldonado – United States
I am Mary-Ann Maldonado originally from Maine, now residing in Massachusetts. I have followed my retired Marine around for 21 years, so we have lived in many extraordinary places. I am a mama to my best friend (Roman), his best friend (Flo the dog) and her best friend (Leroy the cat). I remember crafting with my mom as a small child. Making our own holiday décor, personalized cards and macaroni art! However, I started scrapbooking on my dining room table in 2000 and now I consume the entire house! Scrapbooking pages are my passion but I love mini albums and cards too. I am a hoarder of many things. Antiques, paper and embellishments, but my undiagnosed OCD helps keep it all in order. I have been an educator and designer for several years now and teach locally, run a KOTM and sell on ETSY.
Sherri Funk – Canada
I am a spunky Canadian girl, living on the prairies, married to the sweetest guy around. Together, we have 3 girls ages 11-15, and one very spoiled miniature poodle named Wilson. I spend my days as an administrative ninja for a cleaning company. I thoroughly enjoy strong coffee, roller coasters, eating out, and a good movie, at home on a Saturday night. I yell at the TV when watching football, and hockey, and spend many hours a week shuttling my girls to their numerous dance practices. My love for scrapping was sparked after the death of my mother 14 years ago. There was so much I didn’t know about her when she died. Because of that, I became determined to leave a fun and creative record of our family’s memories for my own girls. I’m primarily a layout girl, who enjoys keeping up with trends. I use clean lines, and often incorporate many layers, stitching, and several embellishments on my layouts. I am thrilled to be joining Fancy Pants Designs and look forward to inspiring you to create fun and lasting memories through crafting.
WELCOME, new designers to our little family! We can’t wait to have another fantastic year overflowing with creative possibilities!Read More
