My name is Joanna. I am Polish living in London, UK. I have a beautiful daughter who has just turned 9. I enjoy making cards and decorating them with my handmade flowers. Before I started making cards I cross stitched a lot. When I am not crafting I am reading books. I love nature. On my blog I share what I create as well as crafty techniques, which I am discovering, learning and trying myself. Thanks to blogging I met my crafty friends. I am delighted that I could join Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team.

My name is Kate. I’m from Poland but I have lived in Glasgow in Scotland since 2015. I have struggled with the Glaswegian accent. It’s hard, the pronunciation is different from English, the accent is completely different, even some words are different. I have 2 daughters but they live in Poland.
I run my own business. It’s an advertising and printing company. Among other things I have a laser cutting machine where I can cut my own chipboard embellishments and use it on my cards.
I started making cards 3 years ago. They were so simple and plain. I only had a few dies. Over the course of time I have bought more and more stuff but from the very beginning, my first love has been Spellbinders. I’m very happy to be a member of Becca’s team.

Hello, my name is America and I’m beyond thrilled to be here. It is a great honor to have been invited to join this wonderful Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team!
I am a mom to 4 awesome kids, an Army veteran, a Military wife and a passionate cardmaker. I was first introduced to scrapbooking by another military mom while we were stationed in Germany. It was so much fun that I was immediately hooked. Soon after, it was time to move again and so we crossed oceans to Hawaii. It was there in paradise that I discovered rubber stamps & my love for card making began. I’ve been obsessed ever since. Along this creative journey, I’ve also been lucky enough to join some awesome design teams at fabulous papercrafting companies and have found some very special friendships.
My creative style varies from layered and dimensional, to busy, cute and elegant. I enjoy trying various techniques to challenge myself and hope to help inspire others.

I am Rajni Chawla from New Delhi, India with my four kids – a daughter, a son, and two cute little labradors. About 7 years back, I started off in the field of cardmaking as a newbie. And now, thousands of projects later, I can proudly say that I start each of my creations with the same enthusiasm as I started my first one with. I eat, sleep and breathe everything that has to do with crafting. My love for ART simply grows with each project that I make. Flowers and birdies are my weakness.
Vibrant and bright colors are my style. But that said, I enjoy experimenting and love to make mistakes (I call them happy accidents) so that I create something new. Besides designer, I’m a craft instructor and a product developer too. I conduct various craft workshops all across India and have developed Crystal Clear, Frosting Powder, and Twinkling Spark for Papericious, India.
