Hi, my name is Anna Sigga - I am 40 years young crafter from Iceland and I adore all things related to paper crafting. I have been a crafter as long as I can remember, and I have no plans to stop. I began my paper crafting adventures in card-making but when I discovered scrapbooking in 2005, I fell in love. I love the fact that my love for cardmaking and scrapbooking goes so well together and that means I can buy more pretty stuff that I truly need. I discovered mini-albums few years back and oh those pretty lil things are so much fun to make – needless to say I am an avid mini-album crafter now. Plus, I recently got into mixed media and that is such a fun way to craft. I adore the gorgeous paper collections you can find in Swedish House Crafts; the stamps and die-cutters are so beautiful. I love that I can access my favourite Swedish craft items in this beautiful shop and know that I will never run out of vintage inspired goodies. I am truly honoured to be a part of this amazing place and I hope I will be able to inspire you to use all these gorgeous Swedish items that I absolutely adore. I look forward to share my mini-albums, cards, altered items and scrapbooking with you all. Here is my blog: 

Hi, I live in Hartlepool on the North East coast of England, and I am mam to two gorgeous children. I work in the pathology department of our local hospital as a Biomedical Scientist. I have always been crafty, my mam taught me how to crochet, knit, sew and embroider when I was a little girl. I caught the card making bug a few years ago when I made wedding invites, I just sort of dabbled for a while, and then I found Tilda, and stamping and colouring soon became my style of choice. I first started using copics, but soon gave them up when I found distress inks, and I love the way DI's look, but I have recently gone back to playing with copics and you also may see an occasional image coloured in with pencils too.
When I found Swedish House Crafts shop I knew that I was in my element, stocking my favourite Tilda stamps, doohickey dies and Maja Design papers, amongst other things, and also things that I hadn't heard of, namely Gummiapan which are quickly becoming another of my favourites too. 
I am so honoured to be part of this awesome design team and being able to bring you inspiration using the fantastic products that the shop stocks. Here is my blog:

Hi, I’m Hellen a wife, mother, grandmother, housekeeper for an elderly cat called Piper, a retired SEN School Bursar .……oh yes and a crafter too! My style differs from day to day as I work by the stamp and recipient to decide whether I want CAS or Fussy and Fancy to suit. Primarily a stamper and an accredited Colourist there will always be inks and pens on my desktop, usually surrounded with copious amounts of glitter, paste and paint. I run workshops in Rochester UK for local crafters and can sometimes be found demonstrating crafty products at Kent shows – you can check out my blog Ellie’s Cupboard for updates on dates. I also have a Facebook page with the same name and you can find me on Instagram and Pinterest as Hellen Pearce too.
I found Swedish House Crafts by surfing the net and immediately fell in love with their stamps and dies from Swedish makers. Impressed with their quality, customer service and price structure I applied for their new Design Team and was so lucky to have been picked. So, I’ll be showing some of my designs using their products for you to see and get some ideas of your own – I hope you’ll join me for what should be an interesting ride!I found Swedish House Crafts by surfing the net and immediately fell in love with their stamps and dies from Swedish makers.

My nickname is Laurigami, I live in France. I am married to a wonderful man and we have 2 boys. I started in January 2013 to scrap, after the serious illness of my second son. I used the copic from the beginning and then, Distress Inks, Distress Markers, Polychromos, Inktense Pencils, Sennelier Watercolor, Spectrum Noir Pencils, Pastel......... I like to make my flowers whenever I can. I do cardmaking, colouring and I started recently Art Journaling. What I love about SHC is the kindness and availability of Suha to satisfy you to the maximum. And the products it has in his shop as the Magnolia Stamps, Maja Design, Pion Design and Gummiapan, all are fantastic.
Keep an eye on the shop, because Suha regularly offers advantages over the Magnolia stamps. Here is my blog:

My name is Lynn although in blogland I am know as Linby as there are so many Lynn’s - it is easier to know which one I am! I have always crafted something and began to papercraft in the early 1990s. For a while I resisted digital crafting but once I had explored it, I realised the wonderful creative opportunities it gives to maximise your crafting. 
I do not favour a particular style of crafting, but I tend to create simpler designs. I use lots of different techniques when crafting as I do not like to do the same thing all the time. I love to mix digital crafting with traditional rubber stamps and dies. This is what I will be bringing to the DT and this is why I was attracted to Swedish House Crafts. They have traditional and digital products available. Also, a big plus for me is that the products are different than you can find elsewhere. Here is my blog:

Hi, my name is Olga, I am from Dnipro, Ukraine where I live with my wonderful husband, our three children and a dachshund dog. I have always loved crafting and DIY, but paper craft is definitely my favorite. And the technique that I love the best is die cutting - there are so many things you can do with it like adding layers, dimensions and so much texture and watch your ideas come to life!
I am happy to have joined Swedish House Crafts creative team as I am really impressed with gorgeous designs of Swedish craft supply producers. I hope that my projects will inspire you and I am always ready to answer your questions! Here is my blog:

My name is Tamara. I live in a tiny village in the east part of Slovenia with my partner and our little baby girl. I started crafting in 2012 when I bought my first rubber stamps. Stamping has become an addiction ever since. I started writing my blog Handmade by Tamara in the beginning of 2013 which gave me the opportunity to become part of some great design teams. In the world of card making I'm known for making pastel (mostly pink) shabby chic cards, using a lot of paper flowers and die cuts. Here is my blog:

I live in Saskatchewan, Canada, with my husband of 30+ years. We have two daughters that are grown and gone and we have lots of fun together in our empty nest. I am self-employed part-time, and am blessed to be able to spend my days playing in my craft room. I enjoy making a variety of different projects: tags, mini albums, cards, layouts, and more. It's all so much fun! One of my favorite things about this business is meeting like-minded people from all over the world. Making friends and sharing ideas is what it's all about! 
I'm very excited to be a member of the Guest Design Team for Swedish House Crafts! The shop is full of so many gorgeous products. Many of these items are not available in my area but Swedish House Crafts offers worldwide shipping. Suha, the owner, is so very lovely! She runs a beautiful shop and believes in having FUN while creating. I look forward to sharing some of the wonderful products from the shop with all of you! Here it my blog:

My name is Donna, and I am in my late 40's, a Londoner, living in the beautiful countryside of Derbyshire. I am currently a stay at home Wife, and have been married to my best friend for 12 years. I have always enjoyed anything crafty, but my biggest passion is card - making, and die cutting. I love stamping and colouring with my beloved Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils. I occasionally dabble in altered art. I am a real flower and lace addict! I love all things pretty. What I love about Swedish House Crafts is the Swedish craft brands that cannot be found anywhere else in the UK, and are great value for money. The products are suitable for crafter's of all abilities whether you are a novice or intermediate. The service is outstanding, and the promotional discounts are exceptional which is something that I have never found anywhere else. Here is my blog:

Hi, my name's Josefine. My favorite crafty projects are messy and/or snarky. If my craft table didn't end up in chaos or if I haven't giggled during my project, I've done something wrong. I was born in Germany, but am living in the US now. During my teenage years I used to travel to Scandinavia a lot that's why I fell in love with Swedish House Crafts. I enjoy the traditional Scandinavian patterns mixed with new and exciting ideas. I'm super excited to be guest designing and can't wait to share my projects with you! Here is my blog:

I make shabby chic style cards, or CAS depending on the design of the products or the person for who it's for!!  occasionally I also do 3D projects, and can make cards with images which I colour myself or just with the products, either or is fine as i do both styles, I have also dabbled in making albums too, I love to go with the flow and make whatever is in my head at the time!!! lol.

Hello! I'm Clair Rigby. I live near Manchester in the UK, in a rambling, old Grade II listed house! I love all kinds of crafts, but scrapbooking, card-making and beading are my favourites! And I've very recently become a fan of Pocket Letters! I love to combine my crafty loves - so I'll often include some beads in my scrapbook layouts or cards! Here is my blog

Hi, I'm Lea from Italy. I live in a seaside town. The sea is my source of energy. I try to take up my free time learning, experimenting and trying to live my passion for art and crafting. I love to get lost in my scrapbooking, Mixed media and ATCs projects. And this passion I will try to convey to SHC readers. Surely it will be very stimulating as the SHC shop is provided with refined materials that everyone would like to be able to put into their designs: I love dies from Gummiapan brand!! Here is my blog:

I'm 47 years old  mom  and I'm living in a small Slovenian village on the Adriatic coast with my husband, 3 little kids,  a siamese cat and puppy German Shepherd. I've always loved drawing and colouring, knitting, crochet and sewing... I love modelling with salt dough, fimo and of course with sugarpaste. In 2009 when my oldest son was born and while I was looking for baptism invitations I found Magnolia stamps. I ordered one and fell in love!!! So... now I spend my evenings colouring and cardmaking. 
I love Swedish House Crafts ... because they offer a large palette of Magnolia products, gorgeous Maja Design Papers and many others... Here is my blog:
