First up is Kathy Martin. Here is a little about Kathy...
My name is Kathy Martin and I've been paper crafting since 2003. My husband and I just celebrated 20 years of marriage in April and have an 11 year old son named Christopher. When I'm not playing with paper and washi tape, you can usually find me in the kitchen cooking a new recipe or baking our favorite dessert. I also love to read, spend time in the garden and go treasure hunting for vintage goods.
And be sure to check out Kathy's Blog for lots of inspiration.
And, Tina Walker..
I created my first scrapbook over 15 years ago, but my latest obsession with paper crafting started about 3 years ago and I haven't stopped since. I think I am drawn to this art because of the great styles, techniques, and product that are used today and that all styles are embraced and loved. I think tapes; washi, paper, and lace are a fun and fresh way to add dimension and texture to your projects. I like to experiment and try new ideas, so you might see those happy mistakes on my projects. I often get asked what my scrapbook style is. A good pre-defined definition doesn't exist, so I like to use the word 'chameleon'. You might see pages from me that encompass the meaning of 'white space' all the way to an artsy, grungy page. Many of my layouts are of my two French bulldogs, Moose & Flikka. My kids are grown, so they don't cooperate much with my photo taking and scrapbooking obsession, so the next best things are my four legged friends. In addition, you might also see layouts from me of totally random and obscure objects or everything things. These things intrigue me and I love to scrap about them. Scrapbooking also allows me to share my other obsession, photography. They go hand in hand with each other. My phone, (with camera) are always with me and I take a picture almost every day.Tina's Blog.
