Hello, I’m Kate Hadfield.
I’m a graphic artist, a mother of two, a memory keeper and a life-long doodler.
I create hand-drawn downloadable illustrations for scrapbookers, teachers, card-makers and crafters that are available for sale here at Kate Hadfield Designs, at The Lilypad and at Teachers Pay Teachers.
I live a simple life with my husband, two children and two dogs in north west England. When I am not designing or scrapbooking you might find me enjoying the beautiful British countryside, eating the odd chocolate (or two), building dens with the kids, ‘helping’ my husband renovate our house or watching Doctor Who. Everything stops for Doctor Who.
I was a member of the Creative Scrapbooking Magazine design team and the author of a series of ‘how-to’ articles about digital scrapbooking. I had a similar series of tutorial articles published in The Scrapbook Magazine and I was also a regular contributor to Scrapbook Inspirations (UK magazine) and Digital Artist Magazine (ezine). Projects and layouts using my products have been published in a number of UK magazines including Digital Crafting Essentials, Simply Cards and Papercraft, Complete Cardmaking, Papercraft Essentials and Crafts Beautiful.
I’m the founder of The Digi Dares scrapbooking challenge site and am now co-owner of the Gallery Standouts blog where we showcase some of the most outstanding digital layouts in the galleries. I have been a guest or have had my work featured on several websites including: Craft Business, Pencil Lines, Papercraft Junkies, It’s a Creative World, Hodge Podge Art, Scrapblog, The Daily Scrapper, The Daily Digi, DS Memories, Digi Shop Talk and UKScrappers.
