Announcing Our Amazing New Design Team

The time has finally come to announce to the world our amazing design team, we have to confess that we struggled to decide who to pick as the standard of work submitted was incredible! But after much deliberation here is the fabulous new team, with a little bit about each team member so that you can get to know them. You can click on their names to check out their personal blogs.

Annette Allen

Anette Allen

Hi, my name is Annette Allen and I am so excited to be a designer for Chameleon Pens. I live in Colorado and am a stay at home wife who loves the Lord. I have been crafting since 1997 and I do not just make cards but also enjoy sewing, scrapbooking and various other crafts. I think if it involves glue you could say that I love it. I have been married for almost 20 years. My passion is crafting and I love being inspired and also inspiring others. Thank you for having me and I look forward to the many new friendships. Happy Crafting!”

Monica Edwards 



Hi everyone first I want to thank Chameleon for offering a spot on their 1st ever design team. I hope to represent them well. My name is Monica and I am a mother of 2 older children. My son Andre is 24 and daughter Mariah is 20. I live in the sunny state of Florida and work at the Kennedy Space Center and love it. I believe I am a chameleon crafter (no pun intended) meaning I have different styles. I do vintage, whimsy, altered, mixed media. I literally love all the different niches and I strive to somehow bring them all together. I hope to inspire and represent the team well and can’t wait to get things started!

Ekaterina Oleinik


Good day, my name is Ekaterina Oleinik. I live in the Ukraine, in the city of Khmelnitsky . I am 28 years old and I am a wife and mother . By profession I am a design-technologist in clothing, working as a designer in the design studio “Peoni”. Professionally engaged in scrapbooking for 5 years. In the last year I have enjoyed drawing and painting with stamps. I am very glad to be in the design team . And I hope that I will make you happy and inspire you with my work with Chameleon Pens.

Isha Gupta


My name is Isha Gupta. Four years ago, I discovered stamping and have been hooked ever since! I enjoy creating cards, paper crafts projects, scrapbooking and mixed-media projects. Furthermore, I love doodling and painting. I also enjoy singing, cooking, reading and gardening.
I tend to create fun and cute cards and love to incorporate various kinds of techniques in my creations. Whenever possible, I experiment with my crafting goodies to achieve something fresh and clever. I’ve been published in various paper crafts magazines in the US and UK. This year, I’ve been lucky and honored to win the World Card Making Day contest.

Kasia Frezja


My name is Kasia, but I use nickname Frezja and I live in Italy. I started my blog in August 2012, My style? First I experiment and then later save that what remained, ahahah :). I like a variety of strange color combinations and texture. I’m glad to have an opportunity to play with Chameleon markers!!

Ilina Crouse



Hello, my name is Ilina Crouse, and I’ve been living in the USA for a little over 10 years now. I moved here from Macedonia. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Sean, for almost 10 years and have two beautiful daughters Anna (3 years old) and Milena (16 months old) and we are expecting baby #3 (boy) in early February.
In “real” life I work as an Electrical Power Engineer for Siemens Energy, here in Atlanta, Georgia.
I have been crafting for as long as I know. Since I was little girl I loved coloring and making cards and handmade gifts, so my passion for it continued through my adulthood. I find paper crafting, and especially coloring therapeutic, especially after a long day at work. Now, I can’t imagine my life without it. My passion is rubber stamping and coloring. I love coloring with all sorts of mediums such as pencils (oil and wax based), watercolors (pencils, crayons, sticks, traditional watercolors, ink refills) and with alcohol based markers. I especially love coloring with the alcohol based markers due to the richness of color you can get, as well their property to blend easily. 
And I am honoured and flattered to be on the Chameleon Pens design team.

I am sure you all can’t wait to see what the team create over the coming months, so please join me in welcoming them to the team and if you don’t want to miss any of their creations hit the follow me button.

    Congrats to all of the design team! Special congrats to my friend Isha. So proud of you sweetie and so happy for you as well. Love all that your sharing here already. Wow.

      Hi Dana, First of all I gotta say that these pens are now indispensable to me now. I have just one question, Did any men submit any images, Or were they not allowed?

      1. Cathy Andronicou Post author

        Hi Jose, we didn’t have any men apply to join the team, our judging is based on quality of submissions and we do not know who has submitted until the team is chosen, that way we are fair to everyone. We would love to have some men on our team, so feel free to apply when we have our next call. Regards Cathy

    Congratulations to the new DT so looking forward to seeing what you create. Being new to stamping and colouring and have bought the Chamelion pens can’t wait to get started. Will we be able to watch videos of you ladies working on your projects or will your work be in the gallery? So exciting to be involved with a brand new product. Regards Thelma from the UK
