Greetings Crafters, today is such an exciting day. For one reason it is October 1, the first Saturday of the month and the beginning of an exciting time here at Die Cuts and More.
Last month we had a design team call, did receive a lot of great applications from all over the world. However, we were only able to choose a few at this time; which made it hard. We hope that our team is able to give you a lot of inspiration in the upcoming months and years.
The first introduction I would like to do is Die Cuts and More owner...
Mansi Gupta Sharma.
Hi I am Mansi , owner and operator of Die Cuts And More. I live in New Delhi with my most supportive husband and my 13 years old daughter. I have been into crafting since last 5 years. Die Cuts And More for me is not just a store, It’s a dream that became real not by chance, but by High Intention, Sincere Effort, Intelligent Direction, Skillful Execution, and a Vision to see Obstacles as opportunities. We started it in the end of 2010, but never knew will fly this high. In those days, it was a struggle to find any craft stuff in INDIA, and the few which were available were sold at EXORBITANTLY high prices. This is where I decided to start my own Craft Store, where everything will be available at the most competitive prices. And now after so many years of hard work, we were capable to turn this small home based store to a company which is now manufacturing various different products and we are exporting to more than 20 countries now. I am thrilled to begin announcing our design team today. I hope you enjoy the journey with us.
Our first introduction today is our Design Team Manager...
A little about me, I am 49 years old, and live in Florida with a wonderful husband that supports my fun. He is always there to encourage me and always wants to see my work as soon as it is finished, he is actually learning some of the terminology. I have 3 wonderful daughters and an adorable 2 year old old grandson and with another grand child on the way. Years ago when my daughters were young I was a heavy duty scrapbooker. I then gave it up for 10 years after a big life change, however during my daughters first pregnancy I started up again. I love my grandson and making memory pages makes it even more fun.
I started making cards in May 2014 and now my days are spent in my craft room having crafty fun. While I am a clean and simple type papercrafter, and I am exploring more of the options out there. I love shaker and box cards, heat embossing and starting to play more with embossing paste, and mixed media.
I can be found and followed on several social media venues.

Second I would like to introduce Kavitha
I am Kavitha from Chennai, India. I always had a creative flair n love coloring a lot from my school days. I also keep doing small craft works during summer holidays with my cousins. I stumbled upon paper crafting when I started blogging few years back and blown away by the talent I came across the world, which inspired me to take paper crafting seriously. I love trying something new all the time and that doesn't allow me to stay with a particular style or art form for long. From fine arts to crafts I have tried my hands on lots of things, and my latest obsession is mixed media. I love mixed media more as it inspires me to create with out any restriction, fulfills my love for playing with colors and to use all thing pretty.
My creations are inspired by colors, my style is more of clean and cluttered with a touch of shabby chic or vintage, but I love trying different styles from time to time. My creative journey was rewarding n fulfilling all the time but mixed media n blogging gave me a new high. I have had opportunity to design for some of the leading brands both in India and International for past one year and I learnt a lot along the way.
