Rachelle DT (Owner)

I am a Christian, Wife, Mother and Grand Mother.
Been married for 33 years to a very dear and supportive husband. 
I am living in Switzerland but are originally from South Africa. 
I work from home by selling scrapbooking supplies.
My passion is scrapbooking and card making and Mixed Media journals. I have a few interests like - photography, reading, jewelry 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.
I am glad you stopped by and hope you will visit again!

Lia DT

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!!


Meena DT

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.

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 stile?

I found the love here, and I’ve stuck to it. I am having so much fun, I’ve been bullied a lot in my life, the scrapbooking and craft community have been so welcoming and supportive and want me to learn what they know, its a big change for me, It’s heartfelt each and every comment I receive and I am honoured, its a relief I can leave them up rather deleting stuff that was hurtful, I just love scrapbooking and cardmaking so much. Thank you for accepting me to your team, I look forward to learning from each and everyone of you, it means a lot being a part of it.
