Since childhood, I am happiest when I have paint and glue on my hands! Playing with new products and getting messy is time well spent in my book. I create a variety of mix media signs, cards, and altered art, and my creative style ranges from cute and fun to clean and simple which I sell in a local gallery called the Art MoB. My latest passion is art journaling, lettering, typography and collecting quotes. My grandest achievement so far, has been my being commissioned to paint a huge fiber glass bear which will be auctioned off for charity in the end of the 2014 summer. When I am not crafting I am photographing wildlife and hiking through our lovely North Carolina mountains. I am 55 years old, single and deliriously happy checking off my bucket list as I go along in life. -
Hi there, my name is Jeanette and I am a wife to one, mother to five and carer of five animals and I live in Queensland, Australia. Having dabbled in crafts of one form or another over my lifetime, including sewing, embroidery, patchwork, scrapbooking, digital scrapbook design not to mention countless projects and costumes for children growing up I would now safely say that Shabby Vintage is my preferred style and lace, fabric and paper are my preferred materials. I have a fun youtube channel where I share my crafty life and also a blog. I currently design for MadAboutScrappin and Guest Designed for Lavish Laces. I am delighted and honoured to be a part of the Helmars Design Team.
Hi I’m Katie,
I am an artist currently living in Dallas. I doodle on everything I can get my hands on and love everything crafty such as scrapbooking, mixed media, drawing, sewing, crocheting, etc, but my favourite projects are always the paper and mixed media projects.
One of the most crucial tools used in crafting is of course adhesive and I use a lot of it, so i am thrilled to be on the Helmar design team.
I have a blog Punk Projects, where I post tutorials, inspiration and other fun things as well as designing custom shoes in my etsy shop. When I’m not crafting, you can usually find me cycling, camping or working in the garden.
Hello, my name is Nicole. I live in northern UT with my three boys: husband Brandon and our two boys Wesley (11) and Thomas (2).
Yep, you read that right my boys are nine years apart in age. It has its challenges at times, but it's so much fun to have another little person running around here. I work part time in the mornings as a cake decorator and the rest of the day I'm the regular SAHM.
I found scrapbooking when my oldest son was about 7 months old and have been addicted since. I never ever imagined I would be a scrapbooker, but here I am combining my love of color, design, photos, and memories into one love.
I've been doing design work in the scrapbook industry for about nine years. I've worked for several scrapbook manufacturers, monthly kit clubs, and have been published in quite a few major scrapbook magazines.
Hello, my name is Kisha Walton and I'm beyond excited to become a part of the Helmar DT family. I'm married to the most loving and supportive husband ever, and the mother of two wonderful young men. I work as a Social Insurance Specialist by day and a crafter by night. I dabble in a few different crafts, however scrapbooking has been my heart since 1999 when I first began. I love to create using various textures, mediums, inks and adding lots of layers to my projects. My favourite things to create are cards, layouts, mini albums and altering items.
My name is Monica Edwards and I am the mother of 2 older children and I currently work at the Kennedy Space Center and I love it! I have been crafting over 20 years but stepped into the blog world in the past 3 years. I consider my style to be well not sure because I love it all. Some days I am vintage, whimsy, fun and bright just depends on the mood I am in. My goal is to inspire others through my work and I would like to say your projects are only as good as the adhesive behind it!
I am a multi-passionate blogger and artist who believes in the power of creativity, cocktails, (parenthetical references) and having a good laugh (generally at my own expense). A creative dilettante (in the best possible sense of the word) and diy-er for life. I flit between 2-D, mixed media, and fiber arts, cycling through as needed to keep the inspiration fresh, the ideas clicking along and avoid the dreaded creative block! Most of all, I enjoy learning about new-to-me techniques, art-related or not and applying them in new ways. I create from my home studio, aka The Abyss, now in its 4th location in the back parlor of a Victorian home.
Hi I am Tamiko, single mom, one beautiful daughter. I am paper crafter first and foremost!
I believe all things are possible with paper and good scissors. Add quality adhesive and things to write, draw and/or color with and BOOYAH... We are having ourselves nothing but pure JOY and EXCITEMENT and EVERYDAY can be a HOLIDAY! (ha-ha). I do a little bit of everything (smile), although my concentration as of lately has been towards, mixed media, art journaling.
I am a practicing social media junky.. if there is an app. out there.. I've heard of it.. possibly used it or have had an account for it. I believe #sharingiscaring and some folks get the best learning experiences from some of the things.
One can easily become an educated consumer with few inquisitive search clicks from pinterest, facebook, twitter, instagram, tumblr and bloglovin.
Hi, my name is Veronica Johnson alias “Kitsnbitscraps”. I have been doing crafts since I can remember, my mom taught my sisters and I to knit, sew, cross stitch, embroidery and I was always coloring and sketching. I was raised in Southern California in a little town by the beach called Hermosa – then I was transferred to South Florida. I was introduced to scrapbooking by my new co-workers in Florida and that was 12 years ago. I have kept busy by teaching scrap book and stamping classes at scrapbook stores and conventions and love every minute of it. From the first time I walked into a scrapbook store I was hooked! I am definitely addicted to paper. I have a passion for creating and sharing my love of crafting, whether it’s cards, layouts, albums, altered and mixed media; I love doing it all. I also enjoy bringing new tidbits and techniques to inspire as many crafters as I can through color.
If I had to name my style I would say “Shabby Whimsy” because I always start projects with lots of color then depending on my mood I will shabby it down with browns, texture and layers.

I started scrapbooking in 2001 after the birth of my first born and became quickly hooked. Right now you can find me near St Louis with two boys, a Marine, a cat named Pablo and two dogs! From there my passion went to hybrid and digital scrapbooking and designing. I think my style varies from one medium to the next but I try and find balance in every project that I create ;) I've had many ventures from designing products for Dream Street Papers, Pink Paislee, MiDesign@Michaels, PageFrames, Coolihah App, TapNScrap App and Magistical Memories to being on digital/hybrid and paper design teams.

I'm a shabby chic mixed media artist and enjoy the creative outlet of paper crafting. I’ve been creating and crafting for as long as I can remember and use many of those skills on my projects. I adore learning new techniques along the way and enjoy sharing my projects along with tips and techniques on my blog. I also design for Donna Salazar Designs, Once Upon A…Sketch and Leaky Shed Studio. I’m a huge fan of Helmar products and am so excited and honored to be a part of the Helmar team!
