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.

Hi, I´m Emelie I live in Stockholm, Sweden with my family – Andreas and our two kids. I work as a teacher and practice basketball as often as I can. But of course my real passion is card making and papercrafting in general. I have been making cards for the past five years and I love it. I would describe my style as Clean & simple yet innovative.

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.

Lauren Lafond-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.
