Design Team

Karen Reategui | Social Media Manager

My name is Karen Reategui and being part of Picket Fence Studios amazing Design Team is a dream come true. Since the first time I discovered this brand I fell in love with the style. I live in the Northeast side of the Peach State, Georgia with my three gorgeous kids. I have a bachelor in Marketing and Communications. My life as a mom is full of duties and crafting is my way to get out of my routine and have some time for myself. It brings so much happiness and joy to my life, it’s definitely my passion! I also have a love for chocolate, photography, decorating birthday parties and baking. I have a blog called “Little Blessings” where I share all my creations. My style leans towards artsy cards and I love using floral stamps. I like trying new techniques and using different materials on my projects. I’m so excited to have joined this team and start sharing some inspiration.

Sara Sherlock | Design Team Leader

My name is Sara Sherlock, and I blog over at Much Love, Sara. I live in Boise, Idaho, with my husband, three dogs, and three cats. I am a Stepmom, Nana, and Great-Nana. I am also 1 in 100 - I was born with a heart defect, and have had several surgeries over my lifetime to keep my heart (relatively) healthy.

Since I was young, I've had a wild imagination, and desire to create. I discovered card making over a decade ago - I knew it was love the first time I saw embossing powder melting! Over the years, I've dabbled in a lot of different styles, and with a lot of different types of paper crafts, but always seem to come back to simple, pretty, cards. I believe in the idea that EVERYONE is capable of, and needs, creativity in their life - sometimes it's just a matter of finding the right niche. I hope that by putting my own creations out into the world, it might help spark someone else's creativity. I'm so excited to have the chance to share projects with you, featuring the fabulous Picket Fence Studios products.

Bonnie Crane

"Hello fellow card makers! My name is Bonnie and I am a Canadian living in St. Albert, Alberta. I am a lifelong crafter who found card-making just a few years ago when I retired from a teaching/administrative career. I transitioned from that busy work life to one that focused on creativity! Card making soon became my primary focus!  I was immediately ‘hooked’ and am a passionate card maker!  I love that I can dabble in various media  and techniques … variety suits my need to explore and try something new! Between my wonderful daughter and grandson, the ‘puppy crew’, card-making and gardening, my days are very full!"

Charlene Madrid

I am just a girl that loves to craft. In my past life I was an attorney. When the world turned upside down I made the move to stay home with my three boys. A gift from my husband for Mother’s Day in 2020 started me on my crafting adventure. In 2021, I discovered cardmaking and I was hooked! My style is mostly clean and simple, though I dabble in many different styles. I enjoy stamping, mixed media, coloring, and die-cutting. In particular, I like to try and come up with new and innovative ways to use products.  Happy crafting!

Laura Nistal

Hello everyone!! My name is Laura and since I was little I always liked crafts. One day, by chance, I discovered cardmaking and since then I can't stop making cards!

I was born in Argentina, but I have been living in Spain for 20 years, although I consider myself a citizen of the world!

I'm a teacher by day and a crafter by night, and I'm super excited to be part of the design team at Picket Fence Studios.

Lisa Tilson

Hi everyone! I am Lisa Tilson and I blog over at My Card Trip. I live in the beautiful county of Somerset in England. The City of Bath is just under an hour away and I consider myself very lucky to live in such a picturesque place. I live with my partner Paul whom I have spent the last 20 years of my life with. Our new house is supposedly built on medieval ground, and I am hoping one day to discover a bronze suit of armour buried in the garden and I will make my fortune! We overlook the historic Cadbury Castle (formerly known as Camalet) which is a Bronze and Iron age hill fort. It has connections to King Arthur and he reportedly held court there during the 6th Century. This stuff fascinates me!
I have digressed a little. I discovered cardmaking about ten years ago when I was looking for a hobby to fill some time. I started with a card kit that I bought in a department store, and then started going to craft fairs and buying magazines. About 3 or 4 years in, I discovered Kristina Werner and then Jennifer McGuire on YouTube and never really looked back.

My style is sometimes quite clean and simple but I have been known on many occasions to cover my cards completely with lots of colour and I never mind getting my hands a little dirty in the process. I love to learn and often do classes to discover new techniques, and let’s face it, it’s just another excuse to buy all the things!

I was thrilled to be asked to join the Picket Fence Studios Design Team as I love to create with their products, and I really look forward to sharing my projects with you.

Hello there! My name is Theary Chea from Cloudy Coral Designs. I am a mother to three beautiful young children and two fur babies. My family and I live in Southern California where we love being outdoors. Growing up, I had always enjoyed getting creative with arts and crafts. I was a stationary fanatic throughout high school and got more into paper crafting as the years grew on.

I stumbled upon some cardmakers and instantly fell in love with all of the techniques involved. I am so thrilled to be a part of The Picket Fence Studio Design Team.
