I’m Caroline know as Caroline Elliam on the net, I scrapbook for 13 years or so. I’m a mother of 3 boys and I live in Quebec, Canada. Scrapbooking is not only a hobby it’s a way of life. I’ve always been active in the scrapbook industry since my beginnings, I’ve own a scrapbook store for 4 1/2 years and now I run Cuts2luv, a badges brand for almost 5 years. This is a family thing, every body is involved in the company and are proud to help.
I couldn’t really describe my style, I like clean and simple as much as layouts full of flowers. I like to vary with the products I have on hands. My heart always go to watercolor backgrounds. I’m actually on Lindy’s gang, White with…1 challenge and More than words DT, I’m also coordinator for Scrap aux Puces a local online store. It’s a real pleasure to join the 49 and Market team!


Hetty’s Blog…Click HERE

My name is Hetty, born and raised in The Netherlands I came to Australia late 1989. I live in a small seaside town in Queensland Australia with my husband of 27 years and our three teenage girls. I have been paper crafting since 2004 and my style is constantly changing while I teach myself new techniques and try to stay up to date with the latest trends. My signature technique would have to be ‘fussy cutting’, and now try to incorporate it with mixed media and the many gorgeous flowers on the market these days. In the past I have enjoyed designing for Australian companies and several online stores as well as working in a few local brick and mortar stores. I have had several of my layouts published in Australian magazines as well as overseas. In 2009 I was extremely fortunate to have been chosen as one of Australian Scrapbooking Memories Magazine ‘Masters’, which I enjoyed immensely. After a bit of break for about a year or so I am now designing and teaching again. I love my creative time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Today I am very excited and honoured to have been chosen as one of the many talented Design Team members here at 49 and Market and I will try my very best to inspire you all.

Juliya’s Blog….Click HERE

Hello friends, my name is Juliya Tirskaya. I’m living in the north of Russia in the city of Yakutsk.
I started scrapbooking in mid of 2015. My favorite line – Mixed Media.
But I also like to make different projects using only paper. I love making fairy tales and forest stories.
And in such works, flowers, leaves and cuttings are simply irreplaceable!
For me, creativity is art therapy. And I will be happy to give you inspiration!


Sivan’s Blog….Click HERE

Hi lovely friends! my name is Sivan Amedi from Israel. I have 2 sweet boys and married to the love of my life, a man who supports me to pursue my dreams to be an artist. I’ve loved art since I can remember, dealing with it all my life, each time with something else.
 When I got to college my parents said it was a hobby so I went to study Psychology. When I finished I can’t let my “hobby” go on and went on to the academy and studied Fashion Design. Today, after more than 13 years I have turned my hobby into a profession. I am a fashion designer, graphic designer, craft educator, owner of “Meme Ve Mari”, a studio where I create, make video tutorials and teach scrapbooking, mixed media & sewing. I bless my work every day anew and I have many more big dreams and hope that they will come true. Because I’m a very optimistic (or just crazy) I hope to believe that with patience and a lot of hard work, it will happen!  🙂 My style is associated with softness, harmony and a lot of elements, especially flowers. Hope to inspire others with my projects, that’s the most satisfying thing for me.
