Bibiana Rodriguez, also known as Bibi Cameron, was born and raised in Colombia. She moved to the U.K. in 2012 where she now lives with her British husband and their kids. Bibi has a degree in Journalism and specializes in Corporate Communications. Even though she has enjoyed crafting since she was little, she never pictured herself as a professional crafter.

Moving to another country, experiencing motherhood, changes in her lifestyle, and her life story itself lit up the path to paper crafting.

Her journey started selling handmade cards and Christmas tags on eBay in 2013. She continued as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in 2015 and, since 2017, she has been working for different crafting companies in various positions – from content developer to social media coordinator to product designer. She is currently a licensed designer for Spellbinders and Contact Crafts.

She aims to share her love for papercraft and get your creative juices flowing. You can find Bibi’s creations on her blog, YouTube, Pinterest, and Instagram.

Carissa Wiley

Over the last 14 years, Carissa has shared her handmade creations through free video tutorials, online and in-person classes, blogs, and publications. She loves teaching and empowering others to create their own one-of-a-kind paper crafting projects. Carissa believes YOU CAN DO THIS and wants to inspire and empower the creative in you!

She has many interests outside of paper crafting. She is a wife, mother of three adult children, pediatric nurse, and mother to two fur babies, Mochi and Charlie. She lives in a small town in the Central Valley of California where she grew up and enjoys the “small town life”. She enjoys traveling the world and scuba diving with her husband of 22 years.

Above all, Carissa loves to laugh and can often be heard doing just that as she shares online.

She knows preparation, organization, and inspiration are a big part of productivity in your craft space and wants to show you how to maximize your products and time.

Erica Andersson

Introducing 4 New Altenew Design Team Members to Craft With! | Erica A-BErica comes from Sweden originally but has lived a little bit all over the world before settling in Spain.

Paper crafting and, especially, card making have been a big part of her life since coming across a sweet and innocent-looking card making kit, and she bought it thinking nothing of what a rabbit hole that kit contained.

Introducing 4 New Altenew Design Team Members to Craft With! | Erica's CraftsMany, many years later, she has a craft room full of crafting goodies and serves on several design teams. Sharing inspiration and being inspired by others is one of her favorite things about the crafting community. 

You can soon find more of Erica’s creations on her brand-new website and connect with her on Instagram and YouTube. 

Hannelie Bester

Hannelie was born and raised in South Africa. She obtained a Bachelor of Pharmacy degree and practiced as a full-time pharmacist for 10 years and on a locum basis for a couple of years before she, her husband, and two daughters moved to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates in 2008.

Introducing 4 New Altenew Design Team Members to Craft With! | Hannelie's CraftsShe has been making cards for many years and started her blog soon after the family arrived in the UAE. Cardmaking was (and still is) a way to cope with being far away from her family and home country.

Her cardmaking style is clean, simple, and mostly graphic. She loves to get the most out of her supplies by using them in creative ways. When she is not busy designing cards, she loves to keep her hands busy with crocheting and spending quality time with her husband and their sweet Cocker Spaniel.

You can find her cards on her blog, Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest.

Welcome to the team, Bibi, Carissa, Erica, and Hannelie!
