About the Crafty Secrets Team
Crafty Secrets - Heartwarming Vintage Company is owned and operated since 1993 by Sandy Redburn, who started out publishing supplier resource and marketing books for professional crafters and small businesses.
Over the years the business evolved to focus on Sandy's passion for antiques, vintage images, paper, ephemera and old books which became the basis for the Heartwarming Vintage Collection of paper arts products and Clear Art Stamps. Sandy has a blog and writes an online newsletter which has over 12,000 subscribers as well as an e-newsletter for retailers of their products.
Today Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage images and Clear Art Stamps are sold in over 20 countries worldwide thanks to an incredibly talented and hard working team who have helped grow the business. Cindy van Koll, the head graphic designer, works her magic to make sure every design has Heartwarming Vintage appeal, is inspiring, versatile and created with love and attention to detail. Jessica and Karin look after paperwork and Shelley is in charge of shipping.
The Crafty Secrets Design Team led by team leader Vicki Chrisman are masters at inspiring people to see some of the creative possibilities for using the wide range of themes the company offers. The DT have created a tantalizing array of fabulous samples in vintage and retro inspired hand stamped cards, altered art projects, scrapbook layouts, mini albums and a host of paper arts projects and keepsakes! Designers who have a love for Crafty Secrets are encouraged to apply as a Guest Designer.
