PCL is excited to Welcome New Designer/Educators

Happy Good Friday to those of you that celebrate Easter!  I wanted to take a minute to introduce you to three new designers we’ve added to the PCL team in the last couple of months.

Tracy Gruber

Tracy’s work first started appearing in the Paper Crafter’s Library member area in February.

 TracyMaePolaroidHere is a little bit about Tracy:

I’m Tracy and I am a 24 year old college student. I graduated in May of 2012 with a Psychology degree and now I’m back in school going for a Graphic Design degree.

I have been creating for as long as I can remember, doing projects with beads, paper, string, glue, you name it! Now, I love to make cards using fun techniques and stamps!

You can follow Tracy on her blogYou Tube, InstagramFacebookPinterest & Twitter.


Therese Calvird

Therese’s work first started appearing in the Paper Crafter’s Library member area in March.

ThereseCalvirdPolaroid-200WHi it’s Therese and I’m so excited to be a part of the Papercrafter’s Library.  I live in Australia with my husband and two adorable cats and have been making cards for 10 years.

I like to try many different styles but my ‘go to’ style I would have to say is clean and simple, I also really enjoy the challenge of trying out new techniques.  

I started my Youtube channel 3 years ago and love to film my cards as I create.  That is why I am so happy to be one of the Designer / Educator’s so now I can share my passion with you and you can share the card making process with me and I hope that you will learn something along the way.

You can see more Therese’s work on her blogYouTube ChannelFacebook and Pinterest.

Yana Smakula

Yana’s work debuted in the Paper Crafter’s Library Member area today.


My name is Yana Smakula, I’m 20-something years old and I’m from Ukraine. I’ve been married for a little bit over three years now, no kids but we do have two black cats and we can’t live without them!

I love to travel and meet new people, discover new cultures and just explore. So far together with my husband we’ve been to a few places in Europe, Africa, Asia and USA. Our next dream destination is Madagascar, I hear the nature there is simply breathtaking!

I enjoy scrapbooking and I mostly scrapbook about our travels (I often take long pauses from scrapbooking when I have no new travel photos to scrapbook).

My other passion is cardmaking – I enjoy trying new products and techniques, experimenting and creating in different styles. I’m very much into stamping and die cutting although I never really though I was until I took a closer look at my cards and noticed almost all of them use stamps and dies!

You can see more of Yana’s work on her blogYouTubeFacebookInstagram and Pinterest.

We’re absolutely thrilled to have these new designers on board!

You can expect to see their work regularly in the member area of Paper Crafter’s Library. If you are interested in more information on becoming a member click HERE.
