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!

Aya Elshestawy

I have 3 years old son and 8 years old daughter. I started crafting in 2014. I love creating mixed media, art journal, card making and making resin coasters. I have TV show/ program called “scraps” broadcasting from Dubai on Beity TV channel.

Cindyellen Robinson

Hello, all y’all! My name is Cindyellen and I am a crafter from Vermont and Florida. I’ve been papercrafting my whole life and making cards specifically for the last 10 years or so. I am a thrifty Yankee transplanted to the Deep Deep South and now enjoying the warmth of Central Florida. My favorite crafts involve thinking outside the box and developing multiple uses for the same supplies – Yankee ingenuity! My other love (besides my childrens and my hubby) are the 3 little parrots that live in my craftroom, Summer, Skye and Pascal; you’ll probably see them in videos.

Emelie Hessler

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. I constantly try new techniques and love to create my own background patterns and work with dies.

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.
