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.

Jaycee Gaspar is a military brat born in Alabama and has called Colorado home since 2002 after years of living overseas. He is a full-time Medical Laboratory Scientist specializing in DNA testing of infectious diseases. During his time away from the lab, Jaycee is grateful for the time to exercise creativity in card making and other paper crafting projects since 2015. His design style is inspired by street art, graphic design, and geometry with deliberate details and composition. His range of creativity also encompasses photography, painting, drawing, and now video editing. Jaycee also loves spending time outside running and participating in local races. The lovely Colorado atmosphere also pulls him and his partner to hike and explore many mountain trails.

Nathalie (aka Tachita, her nickname since birth) was born and raised in Ecuador but calls Toronto, Canada home for most her adult life. She is blessed to be a stay-at-home wife and mom to her teenagers and baby Boston Terrier. She has been enamored with paper crafting and documenting since the day her mom gave her a small paper pad and color pens to play with as a child. Through her life, she has kept a detailed journal of her days and started to transform her journal entries into a more visual format just three years ago. Her style is always evolving, but she loves adding mixed media to her pages and combining black and white photography with lots of colors. You can always find her with her camera on hand, enjoying time with her family or at the dining room table with her black coffee creating her projects.

Jenny is originally from England but moved to New York in 2010 for what she planned to be just a couple of years for her job in financial services risk. But 11 years later, she’s still here, living in Westchester, NY with her husband and her daughter/cardmaker-to-be. She has been crafting (collecting pretty paper) most of her life, becoming a cardmaker not long after moving to the USA, where she discovered YouTube, starting her own channel a few years later. Jenny has designed for several challenge teams, as well as stamp and crafting companies, and she especially loves techniques such as no-line watercoloring, stenciling, and layered die cutting, particularly when she can throw in a little dark cardstock for dramatic effect!
