Meet Our Team
My name is Angela and I live in North East Scotland with my wonderful husband Roddie and our 2 (mostly) great boys Grant and Phillip, 2 cats and now a dog too. Gina and I have been best friends for a long time, we met through a digital scrapbook site and clicked pretty much immediately. Although we only met up physically in 2016 we skype with each other every day and I look after anything computer related to do with the business.
My main hobbies include digital scrapbooking, cardmaking, papercraft, mixed media and photography. I also help a local charity called Friendly Access.

I'm from the St. Louis, Missouri area but spent summers as a child at the family farm which is 150 miles south of St. Louis. My family includes a husband, 21 yr old daughter, 16 yr old son. I'm an avid reader and it comes through in my projects. My style is eclectic with art deco, steampunk thrown in the mix. I have been scrapbooking for 15 yrs with the last two focused on cards and mixed media. I love trying out new ideas and Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts are a perfect blend for my crafts. Dianna's Blog
My daughter (Angela Drummond) came to stay with me about 7 years ago and brought her card making "ingredients" with her. I said that I would make just ONE because I couldn't be bothered to "mess around like that". and the rest they say is history.
I love making cards, and give most of them away to a charity here in England where I live, in a small village called Hurstpierpoint which is about 8 miles North of Brighton on the South coast. I love making things with Gina's designs chipboard too which takes my crafting in a different direction to cards sometimes.
There are very few pictures of me in existance as I, like Gina, hate having my picture taken so the picture here is of my garden
I'm a retired engineer who lives on a small farm in the mountains of Virginia way too far from the nearest craft store. My husband of 30 years is an enthusiastic supporter of my crafty habits. We have a small flock of sheep, a handful of chickens and a hairless cat. I love travel, cooking, geeky stuff and making tiny things.

My name is Jon David Lowe, I am new to the world of mixed media. By day I am a sixth grade Math and Science Teacher but my evenings and weekends belong to my creative creations. I am a messy artist. I am a bull in a china shop and need to be bubble wrapped when it comes to my clumsiness. At any given time in my studio there are open bottles of paint, next to packets of metals embellishments, a tube of Weldbond my go-to universal adhesive, a stack of brushes both wet and dry depending on the technique I am trying, jars of gels, and a menagerie of other necessities. A cyclone of creativity, a thunderstorm of thought, a tsunami of techniques, an earthquake of expectations, a hurricane of hope, all these natural disasters may be found in my studio at any time. From the beginning of my mixed media journey I tried to do pretty and pristine but that is not what excited my clients. They were more intrigued by the messier more chaotic creations of my artistic aesthetic...which I sometimes describe as controlled chaos or eclectic enchantment. My art is a perfect union of form and function. From the madness that is me has escaped some outstanding pieces of art. I am thrilled to bring my perspective to the design team of Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.
I was absolutely thrilled to have one of my projects published in the Somerset Studio magazine in 2019 and hope to replicate this in 2020

My name is Nancy Wethington and I’m from St. Louis, a hop-skip-and-jump from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts. I am also a current member of Prima Marketing Education Team, Mini Album Makers Challenge Blog DT as well as an alumni of Graphic 45 Design Team. I have been creating with Gina (the owner of Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts) for quite some time, writing directions and playing with this amazing product for a number of years. My husband and I have been married for 42 years and have a wonderful son and daughter-in-law, 2 dogs of our own and a grand-puppy-mom to 3 loving pit bull mixes. Our son named my craft room *Nancyland* years ago and it is definitely my happy place. Our home is decorated in a mix of antiques and traditional and you’ll find that same mix in my crafting projects. With an obsession for mini-books, cards and tags I love adding rubber stamps, mediums and flowers to any of my projects. You can find my work on my blog, Art-From-The-Heart. I also teach throughout the Midwest region: Art-From-The-Heart Workshop Schedule and produce Girlfriend Getaways weekend crops, where you’ll sometimes find Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts on-site store. Looking forward to a very creative year with Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts and you.
