Speedy Fox Featured Designer - Patty Penn




Patty Penn is the Senior Design Team liaison for Mark’s Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.  Patty has been with the company for over 2 1/2 years.  Patty also coordinates the Speedy TV bi-monthly card swaps.  During the day Patty works as a Certified Financial Planner with Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, and spends her weekends in her craft room creating rubber stamped cards and scrapbook layouts.  Patty thinks of herself as more of a CAS (clean and simple) card maker.  She likes the fact that paper crafting is not an “exact science”, and that you can normally easily fix any of you boo-boos!

Patty makes all of her cards for her clients’ birthdays each month, as well as thank you cards, sympathy cards, get well cards and thinking of you cards to send to clients and friends as appropriate.

Patty also enjoys making card video tutorials.  Patty has been scrapbooking for 20 years and making cards for 15.  She loves the challenge of getting new stamps and creating with the new images. 

Patty is also fortunate enough to have been published several times in “Just Cards” magazine.  One of her goals for 2013 is to submit more cards for publishing.


Patty has created a great tutorial for us this week on Creating a Mini Legal Pad Binder which can be found here.  Be sure to check out Patty's blog Winnie's Whims & My Crafts for some AWESOME inspiration and tips. 

Be sure to come back next week for another article with our Featured Designer Sue W.

Hi, my name is Tangii, I live in sunny Southern California and I am addicted to all things crafty and handmade!  I have been paper crafting for a handful of years, but have recently gotten back to another love... quilting and sewing up pretty things!  I have a MAJOR addiction to ribbons and buttons and use them in everything from cards, sewing projects, decorating home made jam and anything else I can attach them to!!  Give me a Latte and let me craft and I am a happy girl!



Tangii has created a great tutorial for us this week on Playing with Copic Markers which can be found here.  Be sure to check out Tangii's  blog Ink It, Stamp It, Use It!The Inking Spot of Crain Creations for some AWESOME inspiration and tips.
