ABOUT ME

Welcome! 

My name is Ingrid Kristina V. I’m in my mid 30's and I live in Sussex, The UK.

I design for various UK national best-selling arts and crafts magazines. You can currently find my projects in Simply Cards & Papercraft, Creative Stamping, Papercrafter, Die-cutting Essentials, Papercraft Essentials, Practical Publishing Int Special Editions and Craft Stamper, but I have been featured in Making Cards and the online magazine Mixed Up. I also enjoyed designing for companies and retailers like PaperArtsy, Fiskars UK, That's Crafty! and Glitzcraft over the last few years.

Art is something I enjoyed my entire life and I have my mum to thank for it. She inspired me to create from a very young age. I am curious by nature and I picked up various skills like knitting, crocheting, embroidery and other crafty skills from various women within my family. It stayed with me and I am now passing it all onto my two little girls.

I started making cards in 2013 after watching a few YouTube videos. I bought some craft magazines, a few supplies and gave it a go myself. That was it! I got totally hooked! I entered the ‘Card Designer 2014’ with Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine and oh my! What a big happy dance it was when an email arrived saying I was the Winner!

I joined the blogging community around the same and have since set up two blogs. This blog, where I like to share various fun techniques, projects and other artistic explorations, and the Mixed Media Word challenge blog, where we ran monthly sponsored challenges. We now run the challenges via our Facebook Group ***Mixed Media World*** so feel free to hop over and join in!

In my free time, I love to scrapbook, make photo albums, work in my Heidi Swapp planner, my new TN and just play! You will most likely see my regular posts on my Facebook Page - Ingrid Kristina V or on my Instagram - @ingridkristinav so make sure you follow there if you want to see more of my projects or simply want to interact with me more.

Feel free to contact me with any queries, comments or share my posts. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Thank you for stopping by!

All the best,

Ingrid xxx
