Meet our Design Team!

Jessica Frost-Ballas, Design Team Coordinator

Hi, I’m Jess from All the Sparkle!  I live in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia with my incredibly supportive husband, two senior shelties, a tortoiseshell cat, and a senior bunny.  I am a professional musician by day and a papercrafter by night (or really early morning)!  I enjoy creating cards for my friends and family and I can often be found coloring a couple images or embossing a sentiment in-between lessons and gigs!  I love experimenting with new techniques and mediums and I usually can’t resist adding a little extra sparkle to all of my cards and projects!!  I am a huge fan of interactive cards (shakers, sliders, box cards, etc.) and the introduction of light components for cards was absolutely mindblowing!  I look forward to sharing lots of interactive card ideas with you!

Rana Alo

Hi, my name is Rana and I live in Germany.  I’m 30 years old, a wife, and Mom for a sweet boy. I’m a civil engineer and illustrator. My cardmaking journey started 4 years ago when I wanted to create some cards to give them to our friends when my son was born. Since then I started to search and learn more about cardmaking and I discovered the interactive cards and the lights up cards and I started to combine them to create some special cards that can make everyone’s day better. l always love to try new things and new techniques on my handmade projects and I like to introduce my engineering skills into it. My favourite part is sharing my ideas with people and inspiring them.

Yukiko Inami

Hi, everyone! I’m Yukiko Inami. I live in Japan. I have three daughters and a husband. I have loved crafts, stationery goods and writing letters to friends since I was little. I started card making about 11 years ago at a volunteer group. It’s the best combination of my favorite things!! After that, I focused on it. Card making has brought many new friends and the Instagram world to me. If you have some experiences that you tried to use Chibitronics in your project and it didn’t work, we are similar. I’ll show you not only my beautiful work but also examples from my failed experiences to learn from!

Tiffany Au

Hello everyone! My name is Tiffany Au and I live in New York City. I am an accountant by trade but have always tried out different hobbies to exercise my creative side but nothing stuck. Finally I discovered the wonderful world of card-making 2 years ago and I never looked back. Through learning all the different card-making techniques via Youtube and Instagram I finally discovered my mind tends to gravitate to interactive cards. Getting the opportunity to join the Chibitronics Design team is a dream come true for me!

Kelly Griglione

Hi! I’m Kelly, and like many of us, crafting has always been a large part of my life. I have such fond memories of time spent with my Grandma at her kitchen table learning every type of craft imaginable. What a great legacy to leave … I think of Gram every time I sit down to craft!  Rubber stamps appeared on my radar 15 years ago while attending a DOTS show (Dozens of Terrific Stamps). At the time I was mostly interested in scrapbooking and only made cards for Christmas. It wasn’t until I started a blog in 2012 that I really got into stamping and card making. The frequent challenges, design team assignments, publication calls, and supportive community really pulled me in. I just love it all!

Christina Hsu

I am an East Coast native who found her way to the West Coast a few times.  I moved across the country 3 times in 4 years.  10+ years ago, I decided to stay put in Southern California and I’m loving every minute of it.  I would like to say I’m a children/family entertainment marketing professional by day and paper junkie by night… but in reality, I love paper at all hours of the day!  I love anything to do with paper and parties.  In fact, I throw parties just so I can brainstorm party favors and what kind of personalized “tag” I plan to create for the favor.  Some may say that’s an expensive excuse to make a party favor.  But, alas, I enjoy every minute of it.
