I'm the illustrator and owner of Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez. During and after my studies in biology, I basically draw realistic and scientific illustrations. Some of my work have been published in text books and scientific magazines! So what changed? Why I almost don't do this anymore? Well… I had kids. I discovered a that I had imagination after all and I needed, somehow, to put my ideas on paper. I have never been a great writer but I love drawing, so that is how I started to draw my kinda cute illustrations. People knew me from the "crafty" world because I have been making cards for years, so when they started seeing my drawings they asked me please (pretty please) to make them into stamps. So here I am! Creating different kind of illustrations of the ones you usually can see around. They are cute, funny sometimes, weird some times, and unique. A lot are just... unique in their own way.
In my "free" time I love spending time with my family. It doesn't matter what it is. I'm perfectly fine spending going grocery shopping, playing games, watching a movie, going to the library, etc.... as long as we are all together.
And here is the team that is currently helping me and making fantastic projects with my images. I hope you like their designs and you feel inspired.
I am a stay at home mom of two fur babies - tuxedo cats. I love creating artistically and have been doing so all my life. I have been crafting for what it seems like decades now. I use a mixture of different brands of markers including Prismacolor markers. Love making water colored backgrounds - gives a scene more personality and depth. I make all kinds of projects including Cards, Bags and Tags ...
I am a cardmaker, papercrafter, and love all things handmade. My creative journey began a couple years ago when a friend invited me to a crafty get together and introduced me to cardmaking and stamping, and I have loved making cards ever since! I love being able to share a little bit of handmade kindness through my crafty projects, and can't wait to share more new projects with you all.
my name is Céline and I live in France, near Paris. I enjoy teaching at primary school during the day.
Then, I've been sharing my card making blog with my sister Nathalie for a little more than 6 years.
I love and enjoy card making. I really love coloring my stamps or digis, best of all. I principally use Copic markers.
I am a big fan of Patricia's digis so I hope to inspire you with my cards.

Hi, my name is Sharon, and I'm from Israel. I'm a mother, lawyer, graduate of Interior Design studies and a scrapaholic. As a daughter of an art teacher, I was exposed from early age to art and crafting, and loved it. I happened to be exposed to Scrapbooking 3 years ago, and have been addicted ever since. I started with traditional scrapbooking, but very soon I found that making cards, paper, stamps and Copic markers are my passion. For me, scrapbooking is not 'just' crafting, but also moments of happiness, self-observation, and a real therapy. I love that everyone can do scrapbooking without a prior knowledge of art or artistic talents. As such, I want more people to become acquainted with this field and for that I carry out voluntary projects of making greeting cards in holidays and special occasions in Israel, for the needy population, the sick, the elderly, Holocaust survivors and more - all in collaboration with crafters from Israel and abroad, in a way that gives both the creator and the recipient a blessing.
I also work to make professional knowledge available in the field and I use scrapbooking to promote things that are important to me, such as raising awareness and tolerance for autistic people (a topic close to my heart as my only son is coping with autism). I'm also a Copic Instructor, a member of Design Team in 5 known companies and also a committee member for the Academy of Scrapbooking and Arts.
I collaborate with stores, importers and creators to promote the field and make it accessible to everyone - all on a voluntary basis, out of my love for this amazing hobby.
Hi Crafters, I'm Sue Nicholson in my late forties, married to my husband Philip. Been making cards for some years now. My other hobbies are researching my family tree and play in two ten pin bowling leagues.
