Gina K. has been in love with all things paper for as far back as she can remember. Her many experiences include the Crafty Corner spot on the local morning news, teaching thousands of paper crafters at shows around the country and publishing many tutorials in top paper-crafting magazines.

Gina is also the creative director for Gina K. Designs, LLC, her own stamp and paper-crafting company, and hosts an online paper-craft show called StampTV. Her card-making and paper-crafting technique videos have garnered millions of views from paper crafters worldwide.

Gina fell in love with foiling when she purchased her first tube of DecoFoil™ and the romance has bloomed into a complete line of Foil-Mates™ products.

Her sincere belief is that everyone can make beautiful things with a little instruction and the right tools and products.

Gina lives in Greendale, WI, with her husband Tom, where they own a brick-and-mortar paper-craft store called Village Paper & Ink. They have two beautiful daughters, Alicia and Rina, who are currently attending college in New York and Minneapolis.

Gina will be demoing her signature products by Gina K. Designs in the Craft Fancy Booth on Saturday 11/18 at the One of A Kind Show. We love to see you at the show.


Join in the fun of the 16th Annual One Of A Kind Rubber Stamp & Scrapbook show held at the Alliant Energy Center the weekend before Thanksgiving.

On the sales floor Friday night is a special “sneak peek” event loaded with make & takes and early shopping. (Hence the name Make & Take Market)

On Saturday, the sales floor opens for business until Sunday afternoon with awesome vendors doing demos, selling new products, featuring specials and more.

Shop Saturday 11/18 10am – 5pm and again on Sunday 11/19 10am – 3pm.

​Saturday night is the round-robin Create & Keep event (only for the first 80 people), and of course there are many creative classes by talented instructors which are held Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

​Make a weekend of it!
