Hello I'm Aj.

I'm 40, Married to a wonderful guy, mother to 4 children & soon to be a grandmother. I live on the Island of Fair Isle in the Shetland islands which is the UK's most remote inhabited island.
I have been crafting for as long as I can remember & run a crafting related business working with paper crafts & contemporary textile pieces. I love making cards & scrap LO's, I'm at my most content when I'm working away in my studio.I'm looking forward to my time with Die Cut Diva's & I'm sure we're going to have lots of fun !

Hi! My name is Patty a.k.a. Creative Diva. I love to scrapbook and make handmade cards. I bought my very first Personal Cricut Machine about a year ago. Now, my wonderful husband who understand my love for crafting bought me the new Cricut E2. I started a blog about four months ago to be able to share and display my creative projects, but also to meet other wonderful people who share the same passion that I do which is Crafting
My name is Georgiana and I am a 5th grade teacher in Central Florida. I live with my husband and two children. My son will be 17 years old and my daughter just turned 13. I have a dog, Molly, who just loves any and all attention. I started making cards last year and have become totally addicted. I enjoy using a variety of papers, cartridges, and embellishments. Meeting fellow crafters puts a smile on my face because I know there are other people who love crafting as much as I do.


Well what can I say about me... I'm Linette, originally from Puerto Rico. Married at 18, had my first child at 20, never had a true 21st birthday, had my second child at 21. I have a dog named Tsuki, and a cat named Zin. Take care of my 79yr old grandfather. Do all my crafty stuff at night....
I enjoy making unique and creative pieces of artwork for myself and for my loved ones.  I believe there is no better gift than a gift from the heart.  The love, thought and intention that is put into a project says more than words or a store bought gift can say. I also enjoy working with others to create special artwork for them.  Whether they keep the artwork for themselves or use them as a gift; it is a wonderful opportunity to share my design and ideas with others.  Personalized artwork may be made at a very reasonable cost.

My name is Giselle and I live in Tampa, FL. I'm a young 22 year old mommy of 1. I have had an interest in art since I was little but only started gearing towards crafting about 3 years ago. I started scrap booking when I got married to my sweetie. Ever since then I wanted to learn more and more. I get such enjoyment in creating things for others. Although I'm not very experience yet, I can see myself grow every day. I love to have a challenge set goal for the week. This would be a great opportunity for me to grow my skills.

I'm fairly new at blogging but have been paper crafting for years.  I'm really starting to get more familiar with my Cricut and other tools.  I am a 34 year old stay at home mom to 3 wild and crazy boys.  I've been married for 9 years to a wonderful man.  Aside from scrapbooking I enjoy watching and playing sports, camping with my family just having fun with my friends.


Hello everyone! My name is Yvette, Cre8tiveVet in the blog world. I live in Southern California and have been crafting since I was very young. My grandmother taught me how to crochet, paint, draw, and sew. I had so much fun learning from her. In high school I took as many art classes as I could. I started scrapbooking when I was in college and have made many albums since. Last summer my sister introduced me to Operation Write Home and I was instantly hooked on making cards for our troops and my family. I love making cards and refuse to buy $5 "Hallmark" or any other brand name cards. I have a great husband who doesn't mind my obsession with all things crafty and even helped me convert the guestroom into my craft room 5 months ago. This is my first time being on a design team and I am so excited! Mistyrose invited me to be part of her International friends blog hop in March and now I am happy to be on this DT with her.

For this special summer bonus of Diva Designers has a reward for 2 Summer Bonus Round Winner....One winner will recieve 2 Tim Holtz Clear Stamps and a box of collected paper and embellishments. Can't wait to see your summer projects.....
