2021 Design Team


Hi everyone! I'm Elle, currently living in the wilds of Scotland, UK. There has always been paint and paper in my life for as long as I can remember, and I have been drawing since I was a kid. I am a journal artist mostly, with some cardmaking, tags, ATCs etc thrown in the mix.  I'm inspired by many things and that's my style. I like to use as much recycled products as I can, anything eco-friendly, and I love all kinds of paint but especially watercolour!  I like to make my own supplies, handmade paper, inks, paints, stamps, stencils, re-purposing and reusing items from around the house or from nature.  I am very messy and usually covered in some kind of paint or ink. I also like cats, nature, gardening, baking, fibre crafts and books and I am usually listening to audiobooks in my studio. I have been blogging since 2005 and you can find me at Empire of the Cat, where I share my arty adventures.

Hi! My name is Heather McMahon and I’m from Australia. I live on a small farm with my husband. My two university-aged kids often come home too. I’ve been papercrafting for over 20 years and I never tire of it. Ok, I confess, I’m obsessed! I love the way papercrafting keeps evolving and that anything goes when it comes to styles, products and creativity.

At the end of 2020 I went one step further and started up my own papercraft business with my daughter. The business is called ArtStacks and we’re thrilled to be a More Than Words sponsor too.

I also love to travel and have no end of travel photos to scrap! 

Hello!  My name is Aga Mirkowska.  I live in Wroclaw, Poland.  I work as a scientist but in my free time I'm a crafting-geek.  I love scrapbooking and mixed-media art.  I enjoy making layouts and smaller projects like albums, cards, and of course art journaling.  I love experimenting with colors, textures, layers and media.  It's very important for me to show emotions and hidden meanings in my projects.  It's a great pleasure for me to be a part of MTW DT and I hope you'll enjoy my inspirations.

My name is Kasia - Kat Paleczny and I live in Poland.  I started my adventure with my favourite mixed media style 3 years ago.  I work professionally infecting the young generation with my passion.  I love to experiment, look for new ways to express myself and learn new things.  My style is changing so I'm sure everyone will find something for themselves.  I love to read but I do not have enough time for this.  I am so happy and excited to be part of the amazing More Than Words team!

Howdy folks. I’m Lisa Oxley, aka Scrapwitchlisa. A mother to two 20 something girlies and partner Paul for 28 years. I’ve been creating in different forms for over 30 years and discovered paper crafts 20 years ago. Mixed media scrapbooking lead me on the path to find art journaling in 2012 and I have slowly formulated my creative style since then. Over the years I have created with various design teams and have contributed to national and international paper craft magazines.  I’m so happy to be here to create along with the MTW team. 


My name is Sarah. I live in France. I am married and the mother of two wonderful children who are my source of inspiration for scrapbooking. I am "addicted" to Scrap for about 8 years. Over the years I fell in love with mixed media. Today, I like to create around a word, an image, an idea. It's an honour to be part of More Than Words along with these other talented ladies.

Hi everyone!  I'm Sharon and I live in a small town in eastern Pennsylvania, USA, with my husband, 2 daughters, and our rescued dog.  I am a registered nurse by day and an avid scrapbooker by night.  I got interested in scrapbooking and photography after we adopted our youngest daughter from China 18 years ago, and I haven't stopped since.  I am so excited to be a part of the More than Words design team and can't wait to share my projects with all of you!


Hello! My name is Yulia, and I'm from Russia. I am from Moscow, but this year my husband and I moved to St. Petersburg.  This city inspires with its beauty.  I love my family and travelling. My passion for photography has led me to a new kind of creativity - scrapbooking and Mixed Media! I have been doing scrapbooking since 2014. I have been on various design teams since 2015. I'm inspired by papers, chipboards, paints, and flowers! All these materials can always be found in my projects. Thank you for inviting me to become a member of your amazing team!:)
