Lydia lives in Buckley, Flintshire, North Wales, U.K. with her husband and their two little ones. She has a degree in English and Media and has always wanted to be a children’s TV presenter when she was younger. She has always been crafty; ever since she can remember, she has been cutting paper and sticking things. She got into stamping through scrapbooking. She started scrapbooking in 2009 when she had her little boy and then wanted to take her pages further and make her own patterned paper - stamping helped her do just that. Her passion is for CAS style cards; she sometimes likes to add lots of techniques into her cards but there is always a clean look about them. Lydia has been published in a number of magazines and represents Altenew on U.K.'s Create and Craft channel.

Her friends call her E.T. She hails from Karachi, Pakistan. She started blogging in 2008 and named her blog "VIBGYOR Krafts" because she loves rainbow colors. Her crafting style varies from shabby chic to CAS and she can accomplish both looks beautifully. She loves to color - whether it's watercoloring or pencil coloring. Her friends motivated her to start selling her work so, in 2010, she launched her brand Glitter & Swirls where she sells her work and also takes on commission work. When she is not crafting she is rescuing injured or abandoned pets. She has a house full of cats of her own too; she loves them unconditionally.

Therese lives on the Gold Coast in Australia with her husband and two precious cats. She has also lived and worked overseas a few times; in the U.K. and in Guernsey. She has always enjoyed many kinds of crafting, but everything was put aside when she found her love of card-making in 2005. She wanted to share the joy so she created her Youtube channel in 2012 and along with design teams, magazine publications, swimming, camping and travel (oh, and full-time shift work) she manages to keep herself quite busy. She likes to try out many different styles and techniques, but especially loves to create with flowers.
