Welcome ladies, looking forward working with you!

I am a text writer for more than 18 years for some Dutch craft magazines, called HobbyHandig, Cards & Scrap and Kadoosjes (look at the sidebar of my blog). I love card making in different styles and also making embroideries (on fabrics, but also on cards), cross stitching, etc. Sometimes I make some cards and gift boxes on demand which have been published in the craft magazines.
I am proud of this!!

Hello, I am Priya from Mumbai, India, an experienced HR professional now a Stay at Home Mom of my 6 yr old bundle of joy. My journey into the craft world started when I took a break from my job after birth of my son. It started with Paper Quilling which still remains my first love. I love making out of the box Paper Crafts, Mixed media Layouts, Canvases, Altered Art and Scrapbook albums.

I don't have a particular style of work, I love to try new ideas and techniques. I love working with different unusual mediums and scraps to create out of the box projects. I am very new to card making but now I enjoy making them.

I’m Majda – a card maker, a wife, a mom, a teacher, a puppy lover and a friend. I live in the small but beautiful country Slovenia.   I have been passionate about arts and crafts my hole life. I did not discover cardmaking until late 2015, but I have been crafting every single day since and love every moment of it. I have made so many lovely crafty friends along the way. 
It has been an amazing journey and I would be very happy to get the opportunity of sharing my passion with you. So here I am, addicted to making  cards, always  inspired to try new techniques and styles of cards. My style? I am always curious about working with different materials and like experimenting with new techniques. I love a challenge and cute stamps!

Hugs, Majda

I am Meena Herale from Karnataka India. I am bedridden from past 11years. I have been in crafting from childhood. I got interested in this by seeing my mom and aunties. When I was diagnosed with Spinal muscular atrophy type 2 when I was 12years old my life stopped there because this disease has no cure. I was broken and my all dreams was also broken, at that time I didn't know what to do and how to come out of that. At that time my mom pushed me completely into the craft world. I did one year course in art and craft, where I learnt Pencil shading, Still work shading, 3D clay work, Design letter writing, Nib panting, Blade panting, many more. I wanted to learn more in craft but no one was ready to teach me because I was differently able person and no one wanted to come home and teach, but I never gave up. I learnt everything from YouTube and from books. 
 I took my hobby as my professional from year 1999. I make fun fold cards, watercolouring, mixed media, DIY, altered art, art journal, paper craft, scrapbook layout, hand embroidery, soft toys, decoupage,  etc. I started blogging from Feb 2016. I love to try new things in craft. My Favourite is mixed media, altered art and handmade embellishments  but I define my style as a Versatile papercrafting.
To me crafting is everything because through this I see outer world and can keep in touch with them. It is the only one thing which makes me to forget my disease and its a stressbuster. Even I have my own small online handmade items business and I even teach art and Crafts.

I'm from India, Bangalore. I love all kinds of mediums in my work.  I love the process of creation and have been creating things since childhood - handmade, paintings, colours always attract me.  I love making my own flowers for my projects. I initially started making cards and slowly moved on making many paper craft creations like albums, tags, diy, and slowly it was mixed media which caught my attention and as a self taught mixed media person I love to play with colours, textures, mediums and create lovely creations. Its here you get more freedom to use even the smallest thing in your stash which is just lying in your I love to put in all the stuff and create a magic. I love the colours on my messy hands....LOL!!  I draw inspiration from anything anywhere and would just sit and create.....that's all is shown in my work. I'm happy to be in this team with such talented ladies around!!

I am Monika Shukla from India with a doctorate degree in Biotechnology, worked as a researcher more than 4 years. I love my family, so my world revolves around my two year old son and caring husband. I decided to be a full time mother and homemaker after my child’s birth. I am a full time proud mother who is working on her dream of opening her own craft studio, so now crafter by profession. Irony it may seem but yes that’s how life works. I love making handcrafted cards, handmade albums, layouts, canvases, art-journals, mixed media arts, altered projects, home decor art pieces and other arts. I always love to make scrapbook layouts for my cute little boy and it helps a lot to preserve his childhood memories. 
I am inspired by Tim Holtz, Anna Dabrowska, Jennifer MacGuire, Marta Lapkowska, Keren Tameer, Ola Khomenok and everyone out there who work with so much passion and love. I feel excited to make art piece which brings me satisfaction and a different level of happiness from my home-based craft boutique “UrooCreations”. My husband and 2 year old son, they bring me joy and new ideas for my projects. My crafty soul and peace of mind is always keeping me motivated. I put my heart into creating something unique each time.
I do not restrict myself to a certain style. For me art has always been exploring new things. I love experimenting with new styles when it comes to crafting. I always look to create from my heart and soul. Try not to repeat myself. Up-cycling and designing home decor art piece from any type scrap material, shabby chic style and mixed media have always been my strength. I always look for new inspirations and try to explore beyond my boundaries. Looking forward to inspire and create amazing projects together. I will put my best effort to make this wonderful place full of creative ideas and inspirations.
Ps: UrooCreations, my craft venture is named after my little boy.
You can find UrooCreations on social networks:

My name is Renate, fifty years old , married and mother of a daughter and a son. I have been making cards for many years. First 3d, now only scrap cards. I also make mini albums since a year. From kraft and / or envelopes.
I also like to read and crochet.
With my husband and friends I like to go to the theater in Kampen.
I work part-time in healthcare. In a nursing home, small-scale living, with elderly people with dementia.
It is beautiful and grateful work.

Also I like to make time to relax and making cards. 

I am a designer and a paper crafter from New Delhi, India. I would love to be a part of your design team.

I am an architect and an interior designer by profession and have been blogging since 2008 (i think!). I took a little break from the crafting community while studying for my degree but I realized all it did for me was to make my base stronger and now I am back to crafting and exhibiting my work and hosting workshops locally!
I also have a brand under the name of "The Lazy Owl Designs" and I design stationery and corporate gifting items for start-ups.

 Its Vidhi Jadeja from Mumbai, India. An artist by profession, an avid blogger, a doting daughter-in-law, a mother of two sweet little angels, a full-time homemaker, a compassionate person, a trained artist with post graduate in commerce and a Diploma in Fine Arts. All in one and not necessarily in the same order of priority!
          I have been passionate about art and craft from early childhood and have loved creativity in all forms of ART. My entrepreneurial foray was born with “Artery Crate” (
        The types of Art forms that interest me are Decoupage, Mix media art, Art Journal, Layouts and Album making. I like all traditional Indian art forms.  With passage of time I realised my love and inclination towards vintage, rustic, wooden, masculine, distressed and ethnic art forms. No wonder then that  most of my projects are created around the same theme. 
        Creativity for me is all about inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes and still having fun! 

        I am in love with Mix Media Art. Mix Media is a versatile Art. One can use it on simple Tag, Album, Altered Art, Card, Layouts anywhere…You name name it and you can use it there! So, I am in love with this Art. It gives me immense freedom to use my creativity that I can translate into my projects.

My passion is scrapbooking and card making and Mixed Media journals. I have a few interests like - photography, reading, jewellery making and mosaic. As far back as I can remember I have always been involved in crafts.
Scrapbooking has become a passion of mine over the last couple of years. I love the whole idea of scrapbooking our life story for my kids to carry with them for the rest of their lives. This blog is for those who love to scrap and like to have peeks at other peoples work. It is also to show my friends and family far away what we have been up to. 
I am a animal lover especially dogs (pugs).
I am happy, I am blessed, the Lord Jesus has been very good to me and my family and I believe He has blessed me with a special talent to communicate with others and to share information about this great hobby we all so much enjoy.
