Marta Turska-Grochocka

Hello! It’s Marta Turska – Grochocka here. I’m from Poland. I’m a crazy fiery-red haired person, who loves creating and creative fun. I love to make colorful layouts, art journal spreads & pages, notebooks and albums, artist trading cards and traditional handmade cards and I find it exciting. I love to alter objects, books especially, I love art journaling in an old book’s pages! Art makes my life fuller and richer and Lindy’s Stamp Gang products are definitely my favorite craft toys.

Caroline Elliam

Hello! My name is Caroline known as Elliam on the net, I’m from Montreal, Canada. I’m a scrapbooker for more than 10 years. Married to my best friend with 3 handsome boys between 4 and 12 years, my life is like a roller coaster sometimes. Since I remember, I’ve always been creative, I found that scrapbooking was a perfect way to escape from routine and to balance my thoughts.  I love to try everything new, I create mixed media, cards, canvas but my real love is layouts. Since the day I discovered Magical powders I fell in love with those little jars. I like to use bold bright colours as much as pastels, I’m more a scrapbooker or mixed media scrapbooker but I love to do tags and canvas too.

Natalie May

My name is Natalie May & I am from Australia.  I am a full time papercrafter working out of Adelaide, South Australia and absolutely LOVE what I do – especially working with Lindys products, I love everything inky & colour based.  Versatility is my biggest asset … from grungy, simple, sketches and shabby through to mixed media, art journaling, canvas art and cardmaking – I love to dabble in it all!

Elena Martynova

Hi! My name is Elena Martynova. I am 39. I live in a big southern town in Russia.  Creativity is my favorite hobby. I really love making albums, pages, cards and notebooks.  I like to work in various styles, but my favorite is mixed media.  Scrapbooking for me is an art therapy and a way to express and find myself in everyday routine. It’s just enough for me to have some papers and paints to engage myself into my favourite meditative hobby.

Tina Stepanova

Hello! My name is Tina and I am 28 years old. I am a mom of a little girl and now I’m on a maternity leave. Scrapbooking and especially mixed media art became my biggest passion during the last 5 years. I like to create in different and contrast styles such as mixed media, steampunk, grunge, shabby shic and clean&simple, it helps me not to lost my inspiration. Most of all projects I prefer layouts, canvases, art journal spreads and altered projects. Recently I’ve tried to make ATCs and tags, and I think I’ll love them too.

Cindy Brown

My name is Cindy Brown alias Talkis on some Quebec forums. Those who know me say I am a dynamic girl who left to mark the way. Hyperactive by nature I channel my energy into lots of scrapbooking projects.  Scrapbooking entered my life in 2006. I am a compulsive buyer! I love discovering and trying new products especially. I want them all !!!!! I love watching everything around me and inspires me to create.  I started this passion by making pages and then I‘m exploring the mixed media to return to pages by adding a touch of mixed media. I can not say I have a particular style, what I can say is that I like to explore all avenues. Hope to show you my creations with the products of Lindy’s stamp Gang During my term.

Sanderijn de Bruin-Mittendorff

I am Sanderijn de Bruin, 39 years and mother of a beautiful little girl. I am married and live in The Netherlands.  I have been scrapping for almost 9 years now.  I think, as an artist, you are always developing yourself. I am very curious about new products and techniques, I always want to try everything, and develop myself more and more.   My creative journey means a lot of trying out (and throwing away) but I love it when I discover new techniques and make it my own.  I am interested in creating scrapbook pages cards, tags, mixed media canvasses, watercolor techniques and OTP projects.

Mary Catt

My name Mary Catt, I live in Greece and started scrapbooking almost three years ago and since then it has been my obsession.  I’m a mixed media scrapbooker with a little vintage and some shabby chic touches. I like to test my creative ability and always try to improve my skills. I mostly do layouts but I love creating tags, cards, mini albums, canvases and altered items as well. I find lots of my inspiration in everyday life and when I scrap I feel so relaxed that I totally forget everything around me.

Solange Marques

Hi, my name is Solange Marques.  I live in South of Brazil and I’m in love with a scrapbooking since 2004.  Since I was a child I was in love with art. I graduated in Architecture and Fine Arts (perhaps that explains my huge passion for paint and their constant presence in my projects) and have just retired, so now I can create full-time.  I love mixing techniques, mainly involving paints and textures (watercolor, acrylic paint, modeling paste and a lot of mediums). I consider myself a mixed media artist and I love the artsy style!   I like to create layouts, art journals, altered items and canvas.

My Blog:

My name is Di Garling & I come from the land down under, Australia.   I have been scrapbooking & paper crafting for about eleven years.  I adore mixed media, colors & textures, I create layouts & cards, but I love to do a canvas or OTP project sometimes too. I think once you are bitten by the paper bug, you are hooked for life.
