Speedy Fox Featured Designer - Patty P




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 your 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 scrap booking 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.

You can find Patty's latest video tutorial on SpeedyTV here and her blog here for more inspiration.

Speedy Fox Featured Designer - Pat G





I have been a Senior Design Team member for Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company as well as the Speedy Fox and Friends Blog Challenge for nearly 2 years - with a 1 1/2 years as the Blog Team Coordinator.

I have been stamping since 2005, and my specialty is backgrounds. I could make them by the hours. I also love, love, love techniques and trying new ones out. I have been published a few times in Vamp Stamp News and Just Cards. I love the challenge every month when new stamps come in the mail and creating with them is great fun. I have been a crafty person since I was young, taking part in many craft shows doing Toll painting, knitting, crocheting, sewing, cross stitch and now rubber stamping.

On most days I am a Shift Supervisor for Wendy's, and I try to spend my days off stamping and designing in between doing laundry and vacuuming. My husband and I live on a small farm in Central Florida. My youngest child is a student at USF in Tampa, and my 3 older children live up north in Ohio where I am from.

You can find Pat's latest tutorial, Gatefold Easel Card, on SpeedyTV here and visit her blog here for more inspiration.
