About me

My name is Kate Hadfield, I’m a 40-something British mum of two, a digital scrapbooker and graphic designer illustrator graphic artist compulsive doodler! I create hand-drawn downloadable designs for scrapbookers, card-makers and crafters that are available for sale in my personal store and at The Lilypad.

I started scrapbooking in early 2006 and opened up my store at The Lilypad about a year later. After studying Fine Art at college, working in a photographic agency and trying out almost every craft under the sun, I have returned to my first love: drawing! There are few things in life that make me happier than opening a crisp new sketchbook, sharpening my pencils and getting doodly with it!

I live a simple life with my family, when I am not designing or scrapping you might find me out walking with my dog, 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!
