Before we see their creations let’s meet and hear from them:

Hello, I am Gayatri. I have always been associated with arts since I love drawing and painting.  My tryst with paper crafting started 5 years ago with quilling, followed by layered cards. I then, widened my area of crafting to scrapbooking, CAS cards and decoupage. I am extremely passionate about crafting and I love trying out new techniques. I am super excited to be a member Itsy Bitsy Design Team and looking forward to sharing tons of projects with everyone.

Hi I am Nupur, an engineer by profession, techie by job and artist at heart. I have been painting since last 25 years and Painting is my First Love! Water colour is my favourite but I also keep exploring and experimenting with other mediums as well. Along with painting, I also do lot of clay art and paper art and recently am trying my hands at decoupage.

Hello, I am Saadia Nawaz, a doctor by profession and work as a consultant General Surgeon at a hospital in Peshawar, Pakistan. Since childhood, I loved drawing and painting but had to stop due to my studies. I restarted crafting about 6 years ago and got into making clay flowers and resin jewellery. Later, I shifted to card making, scrapbooking and mixed media.

Hi this is Mukta and I would like to introduce myself as a craft addict!! I am from Mumbai and have always been a crafter, at least since the time I can remember. Although I have completed my Masters in Engineering but I feel the connection only with craft and so I use my engineering skills for crafts, trying to make innovative projects. I am majorly into up-cycling, gift box making and wrapping, decoupaging, scrapbooking and stamping. My latest passion is Mixed Media.

Hi, this is Pooja from Gurgaon. I am a fashion designer but craft is my only passion. I love experimenting with new products and techniques and mixed media is my forte! Other than that I love altering things and making clay murals. I am looking forward to having a great time here at the Itsy Bitsy DT team.

Hello, I am Vaishali Khandwala from Mumbai, India. I am an architect by qualification but a crafter at heart! I enjoy creating home decor and gifting products. I see possibility of wonderful alteration in almost every object around me. Decoupage is my favourite as it helps me up-cycle treasured objects and customize utility products.  My creations have a balanced play of colours, forms and textures.  I also enjoy teaching craft to all ages and for me craft is a form of expression and a never ending journey to Create, Express and Enjoy! Thrilled to be a part of the Itsy Bitsy Design Team and looking forward to bring you loads of inspirational projects!

Hi, I am Lisa from Wigan, England. I have always been an enthusiastic crafter and started crafting from a very young age. I continued crafting as I grew up and gained a special love for art and design. My education was also related to these subjects and later, I taught Art and Design and Textiles and Fashion. Now, I use my experience to motivate others and am a craft demonstrator, which I love! It allows me to do the thing I adore most, sharing my knowledge with people of similar interest. I love creating with mixed media techniques, painting, inking and stamping. I am such a huge stamping fan that I consider myself a ‘stamping addict’! I am very excited to join the design team of Itsy Bitsy. I feel the range of quality products available is brilliantly suited to my crafting style.

Hello I’m Hema from Bangalore.  Handmade things, paintings and colours always attracted me. I love using all kinds of mediums in my work. A ‘crazy about crafting’ person, I even craft on short travels and always keep a small art bag handy while on the move. Initially, I started with cardmaking and slowly moved on to other paper crafting creations like albums, tags, DIY’s. Gradually mixed media caught my attention. I love making my own flowers and using, even the smallest things from my stash. Just love to put in all the stuff and create magic and messy hands. My inspirations are drawn from anywhere and it all shows in my work. I’m happy to be in a part of this team with such talented ladies around!

We also extend our heartfelt THANKS to all you lovely people, for being with us and reading our blogs with great enthusiasm. You are a great audience!! Keep showering your love and support on us. Your encouragement and support helps us to bring you the best always!!
