The Ton Design Team
Hi everyone. My name is Vera Wirianta Yates. Or you can also call me Lingling. Originally from Indonesia, I’ve been calling Texas home for the past 20 years. I’ve always been interested in craft and doodling since I was a kid. My journey into paper crafting started with scrapbooking and branched out to card making soon after. I love playing with pretty papers , critter or flower stamps and pretty colors. I’d describe my style as CAS, cute & cheerful. I love using happy colors. I kind of a rainbow & unicorn kind of girl. Hah! And, dog. I am very much a dog person with a very special love for pug. I am also the founder and organizer for Caring Hearts Card Drive that I now run with Jennifer McGuire. Joining The Ton team is definitely a wish come true for me and I am excited for this new adventure. You can find my blog here.
Hello everyone! My name is Jenny Lee Yamasaki. I was born in South Korea, and have been residing in sunny California for about 30 years. I’ve been happily married for 7 years, and I am a mother of a 4-year-old girl and a 7-year-old fur baby. My card making journey began while I was bed ridden due to my back surgery in 2015. During that time, I watched tons of card making tutorial videos on YouTube for months, and decided to try making my own cards. Thereafter, card making has been my therapy, passion, and obsession. I love stamping, coloring, getting inky, and experimenting with different art mediums and supplies. I am so honored and thrilled to be a part of this amazingly talented group of ladies!

Hello! My name is TaeEun Yoo. I’m a happily married SAHM to a 8 year old boy and a 4 year old girl. I was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea and lived in Germany for 18 years, before I came over to NJ, USA in 2013. I fell in love with cardmaking hobby, as I watched some video tutorials in 2015 with my little girl, who loves crafting, too. Then I became an active card maker, which was the best thing happened to me last year. I feel comfortable with CAS style but I’m ready to try any style of cards. It is an honor for me to work with such talented ladies in The Ton team. I’m looking forward to having a inspirational journey of cardmaking with you all, crafty friends!!! You can find my blog here.
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).

Hello! I`m Olga Matyushevskaya. I live in Vsevolozhsk town close to St.Petersburg, the most picturesque city of Russia. I’m wife and mom of two boys. I got carried away of Scrapbooking after the birth of my younger son five years ago. But for a long time I did`t like to make cards. I was creating albums and layouts. Later I started the Project Life, wich I still lead. Two years ago I decided to learn how to make CAS cards. This activity inspired me so mach that scrapbooking moved into background. I like to experiment with tools and technics while card making. I like stamping! I use Zig-markers, different inks for coloring. I am very happy I’ve joined team and I want to reach new heights with The Ton. You can find my blog here.
