Janette Kausen

FullSizeRender 1080

Hello, Hello! I am Janette Kausen, I am the wife of my high school sweetheart and the mother of 4 amazing daughters (2 in elementary, 2 in college). We raise our family in the citrus rich community of Exeter, California. We grow oranges, almonds, cherries, grapefruit and recently added persimmons to our commodities. You may have even had our locally grown goodness at your grocer or even at your table. I am an old soul with a Type A personality. Crafting allows me to decompress from the stresses of everyday life. I find my Creative Bliss in being a Paper Crafter, Stamper, Copic & Watercolor Lover, Quilter, Aspiring Modern Calligrapher and overall ProCraftinator! I am so honored to be a part of the talented Ton team. If you’ve followed me for long you know what a huge fan I am! You can follow my blog here.

Here are some of Janette’s wonderful Ton creations:


Lisa Harrolle

January 2016-1adjsmall

Hi everyone!  My name is Lisa Harrolle.  I’ve been married to a great guy for almost 30 years and we raised three wonderful young women together.  I’m a mid-western girl, born and raised in Illinois.  I’m self employed and work from home so most days will find me sneaking off to my craft room for a little card making fun.    I started paper crafting back in 2004 when scrapbooking won my heart.  I didn’t really start making cards until a few years ago when I discovered the wonderful non profit organization Operation Write Home who supplied handmade cards to service members overseas.  Making over 100 cards in just a couple months really gets you hooked!   While stamping is a passion of mine, it’s dies that are my true addiction.  I love working with my die cutting machine and building layers onto my cards and I’ve never met a coordinating die set I didn’t need.
I’m so honored to be a member of  The Ton’s design team.  These talented ladies inspire me every day with their creations and I hope I can add a little inspiration to the mix too.   You can find my blog here.

Brenda Noelke
Hello everyone!! My name is Brenda. I live in a small town in MO. I’ve been married to my wonderful husband, Doug, for almost 20 years (in April)! We have two fur babies, Bailey & Sidney, both golden retrievers!! I must have been a dog in a former life, because I LOVE all dogs. Doug & I own & operate a two-truck, monster truck racing business (he drives, I don’t…wink), which involves a lot of travel on the weekends, putting on shows around the country. I have always had a creative side, especially a love for coloring. I even won a coloring contest when I was in grade school & won several tickets to Six Flags. During high school & college I airbrushed T-shirts at Six Flags. I became involved in papercrafting through scrapbooking, which I did for several years. The last couple of years I have become addicted to card making. I LOVE coloring flowers with all different mediums, including inks, Copic markers, watercolor, Zig watercolor markers, colored pencils, etc. Clean and simple cards that let the stamped image shine are my favorite, that’s why I love The Ton stamps…they are so beautiful!!! I am soooooo excited to be joining this team of talented artists at The Ton!!! My blog can be found here (bear with me, as I am new to this blogging thing), but Instagram is my jam (@mypapercutcreations).
Here are some of Brenda’s stunning Ton creations:
Please join me in welcoming Janette, Lisa and Brenda to our team! We can’t wait to see all the inspiration from these talented ladies!
