I started making jewellery and cards when I was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer in 2009. It helped take my mind off what might happen if the treatment didn't work. Jewellery making wasn't my thing, I have arthritis in my hands so picking up tiny beads was not always possible lol. So I decided to try papercrafts and started off making 3D projects and fancy cards, I still do from time to time. The treatment DID work and here I am almost 9 years later with a lot of side effects to contend with but still alive. I enjoy my card making immensely and love my DT work! I have made a lot of friends from all around the world through blogging and my Design Team work, and look forward to making many more.

Blog Owner/DT Coordinator
I am a Kentucky native living in Washington with my wonderfully understanding husband, who is also my go to guy with creative questions and directions. I am a mother and grandmother. I have enjoyed all types of arts and crafts ever since I can remember. Painting, needlework, scrapbooking, crocheting, drawing and coloring. I have found that I love creating cards, being on design teams and have recently started working with mixed media.

Simple Art & Craft
I am a researcher by day and crafter by evening. I reside in Mumbai along with my husband (my rock). My inspiration for art and craft is my aunt. She is an excellent artist. When I was young, she motivated me to start drawing images from colouring book which was my first step into the world of crafting. I make CAS cards, stamping & die cutting, rearrangeable rangoli, foamiran and scarpbooking. I also take classes at home. I love experimenting and trying out new things in craft.

My Little World
My name is Ines. For six years I have been with all kinds of arts and crafts Initially, these were the ornaments of pasta (Christmas tree, candle, baubles) and now I am doing mostly cards, albums and boxes. My works adorn made own all kinds of flowers that I love to do. Constantly I am experimenting in various techniques and all the time I learn something new.

Cut, Fold and Glue
I am recently retired from working in the financial industry as an Operations Manager. I am new to the amazing world of making cards and coloring with Copics. My good friend Patty Chapman has coached and shared with me so much and a good deal of fun is had by both of us. I also love to knit and sew. My dream is to someday have my very own "she shed" plumbed and heated!!! Thank you Sherry for this opportunity to be a member of your Design Team.

 I have been crafting in one way or another for most of my life which includes knitting, crochet and sewing, but I became involved in card making about 10 years ago and have been well and truly hooked since then. I have been retired for 5 years now which gives me plenty of time to pursue my love of this craft. I am never happier than when I am in my craft room! I live with my partner Alan and have two grown up sons, Marcus and Simon. Marcus is married to my lovely daughter in law Thalia, who have given us twin grandchildren Amy and Owen who are now 16. I'm proud to be part of the The Creative Crafters Design Team.

Hi, I am Jolanda, born 1958. I live just east of Rotterdam, Netherlands with my husband since 1979. My daughter and son live on their own. We are both retired and have a lot of time for our hobbies. I learned to be creative as a child. My father loved to create all kind of things of wood or paper and my mum did a lot of sewing, knitting and stitching. After I got married and the children were little, I picked up all that, but nowadays only the "paper" stayed. But I do like variety, so I like making cards, color (digi) stamps, home deco, Mixed Media etc. My other hobby's are traveling around the world, playing tennis and singing in a pop choir. If you would like to see more of my work head over to my blog.

I’m a happily married Mum of 2 adult boys and more recently first time Grandparent to a gorgeous wee granddaughter! Oh and a Craftaholic!! 
Crafting is something I have loved doing, for as long as I can remember. I have enjoyed every moment of what began as hobby, to being so much more! I love to create using digital images or stamps, along with different techniques from embossing, gilding and obviously colouring with pens, paints or inks.  I have not looked back, even having been diagnosed with spinal problems and fibromyalgia; this has been such a therapeutic and amazing journey, where I’ve been able to share my passion to the crafting world and having my creations showcased on TV and in magazines; a delightful dream come true. I am so delighted to have been given the opportunity to be part of this team, where I can continue to create and inspire whilst having fun doing the thing I love most!!
