Niccole Kulig


Hi, my name is Niccole Kulig and I have been crafting for as long as I can remember. I live in a small town in Wisconsin. I have a very supportive husband and three amazing children. They range in age from 25 to 13. I also have an amazing granddaughter who is almost two. You will most definitely see photos of my tribe popping up here or there. I also have 3 fur babies; one dog and two cats.

I am a social worker by day and card making is a major stress reliever at the end of the day. I would live in my craft room if I could. I would say my style is more along the lines of clean and simple. I love to learn new things and share what I know with my friends.

I’m Amanda of Pear Blossom Press. I’ve been a cardmaker for over 25 years. I enjoy creating my own backgrounds and creating cards with lots of layers. My favorite cards are interactive though!

Annette Allen

Hi I’m Annette. I am so honored to be a part of the i-crafter design team. I live in sunny California and I have been married for 25 years to the most awesome man.

I have been crafting since 1997 when we were stationed in Germany and well I have been addicted since. I told my husband 13 years ago that I was going to start a blog and who thought it would turn into this fun adventure. Card-making is my passion but I dabble a little in everything. I love color and I think that shows in my cards. I am so grateful to be a part of this awesome paper crafting community.

Brianne Firth

Hi, I’m Brianne Firth.  I am an active duty military spouse currently living in Washington state. My family is full of fur babies, one dog and three kitties. I originally discovered cardmaking when I was creating my wedding invitations back in 2018, since then I have developed my love for stamping and coloring. I love cardmaking because it helps me stay connected with my family and friends all over.

Jennifer Paar-Gross

Hello crafty friends! I am Jenn Gross (aka @journeycoachjenn). I live near Chicago, IL and have been crafting and creating since I can remember. I am mom to a soft little furbaby – a Yorkie named Tye.

I love to color and paint, so paper has always been a part of my life. I am super intrigued by interactive cards and paper-crafts. My style is whimsy and fun with an occasional bit of sassy added. My day job is in higher educations, but creating is my balance. I look for inspiration everywhere and try to make my card easy for others to create.

Justin Averill

Hello, I’m Justin! I live in the Chicago suburbs with my husband and my (not so small) pit bull, Duke!

My love for paper crafting started in 2016 when I popped into a paper store and picked up 2 stamps and an ink pad to make a card for my grandma. Ever since then, my stash has multiplied like wet gremlins, and I just love it!
My style lends itself to lots of bright colors, stencils, ink blending, and alcohol marker coloring whenever I get the chance!

Lauren Zertuche

Hi, my name is Lauren Zertuche. I am originally from Canada, but I now live in Texas with my husband, 2 kids, 2 pampered pups, a temperamental cockatiel and a cute yet feisty young cat.

I have been interested in all kinds of crafts since I was a child, but I developed a love for paper crafts when I discovered stamping and cardmaking about 16 years ago. Lately, I have been able to devote more of my time to cardmaking and I really enjoy creating interactive cards and scene building.

Lynnea Hollendonner

Hello! I’m Lynnea Hollendonner. I’m from Scranton, PA and I’ve been making cards for 17 years – since I was a teenager! I have a wonderful husband who oohs and aahs at all of my cards and a 4 year old son who crafts as much as I do.

I love to create clean and simple cards that have a little something extra – maybe a pop of color, a fun technique, or added shimmer and shine. My hope is to bring you inspiration so that when you see my projects you think “hey I can make that!” and you sit down and get crafty yourself!

Tina Guigui Dornbaum

Hello, my name is Tina and I am a graphic artist/designer.  I am married and have a son who is all grown up. I needed something to do with my spare time so one day while surfing the net I landed on a website for crafting.

In 2008 I took my first card class and never looked back.  I am always trying out new techniques so my style is always evolving, however, one thing never changes…I love to fill my page.  I have been published in various craft magazines and featured on some craft companies blogs.

I am super excited to be on the i-Crafter Design Team and share my projects with you.
