My name is Anita Kejriwal and I live in Kolkata, India with my husband and two children. I am married for 24 years and stay together with a big family. I have been crafting since I was 5 years old.
As a child, I would draw and color and make simple cards for my friends and relatives. As I grew up, this became a passion for me and I took this up seriously, learning various aspects of art and craft. I have been teaching craft since last 10 years and have also given craft demonstrations in many clubs and colleges. Scrapbooking, card making and stamping are my favorite but I am always open to experiment, learn and absorb new methods and techniques.
Over the years, I have evolved in my craft and my hobby has brought me a lot of appreciation and fame all over the world. I also like to dance and sing and have taken part in many stage shows. I am truly honored to be a part of the wonderful Design Team ofInspired By Stamping. I am sure this will take me to new heights and give me a new identity. My Blog is http://craftingforever-anita.blogspot.in/

I am honoured to be part of the great team and part of Inspired by stamping team.
Thank you for having me
I’m Berina from Moxie Craftie. I’m married to a wonderful man for 5 years and we have 2 beautiful daughters who are 3 years old and 4 months old. I’ve been crafting in some way or other, right from my childhood.
I used to make simple greeting cards for my family, learnt to make both fabric as well as paper flowers, tried my hand at embroidery, learnt to crochet and made some jewelry. I started blogging only a few years ago and from then on, there’s no stopping.
Now, I spend most of my crafting time on making cards. But I do take time to try other crafts too. I like to experiment new styles and techniques. I create CAS cards as well as layered cards and everything in between. Like most of us, I find crafting to be really a stress buster.
Hello! My name is Gloria Hayoung Lee.
I was born in South Korea and I moved Canada in 2004.
I live with my husband and two boys.
I always have hobbies – card making, knitting, drawing and painting.
I really love making cards with beautiful stamps, dies, inks, beautiful papers and many more.
I’m very excited to be a part of Inspired by Stamping and I looking forward to sharing my creations.
Hi, I’m Henriëtte van Mierlo, 47 years. I live in The Netherlands with my boyfriend Robert and I have a 15 year old daughter. I work 4 days a week in financial administration and in my sparetime I love to craft, especially card making.
I’ve been making cards for many years, starting with 3d cards (learning by watching my mother make those) . Nowadays I like to make clean and simple style cards using all kinds of cardmaking techniques.
I color my stamps not only with alcohol markers and watercoloring inks but also digital in Photoshop (a magical tool). Not only do I use clear/rubber stamps but also digital stamps.
Other creative hobbies I like are making cute things with polymer clay or felt (kawaii style), watercoloring, making nylon flowers and wire bending.
To stay fit I go to the gym 2 times a weeks and I also like to read books from as long as I can remember (mostly travelstories).
Never a dull moment and not enough hours in a day.
I started to make cards 6 years ago and firstly I created a lot of cards of different stuff that everyone can find at home. I have been doing it for 1 year before I have found that this hobby is called scrapbooking.
Now I can’t imagine my life without it. I create cards, albums and layouts in different styles. I like to watch at my progress and I want to develope my skills more and more. I think my style in scrapbooking is bright, clean and light.
Last 2 years I became a big fan of the CAS style in cardmaking. And I am really excited to become a part of such a talanted Design Team, I think it will be an amazing year!
Hello everyone! My name is Lindsay Adreon. I live in central Iowa with my husband and our two kiddos. I’ve crafted since I was about 5 years old, and I still can’t believe my Mom let me use a hot glue gun that young!
When I had my son and became a SAHM I knew I needed something to do for some “me” time so I started scrapbooking. That turned into stamping and cardmaking fairly quickly, and has been my main hobby/crafty outlet ever since!
I started my Blog and YouTube Channel in December 2015 and have been sharing my video tutorials there as a way to connect with other card makers and share my creations. I am so excited to be a part of the Inspired by Stamping Design team and look forward to sharing with you all!!
