Creator of the Katzelkraft brand, Béatrice is originally from Paris, she moved to Alsace 20 years ago to marry Christophe.
After ten years of practicing origami, she discovered stamps and card making. In 2004 she created a store on Ebay and distributed unmounted stamps which were then completely unknown in France.
In 2007 the enthusiasm of the customers leads to the creation of the online store. Since then, the brand has evolved, the manufacturing has become entirely managed in our workshop in Alsace.

Originally from Germany (Bavaria), I have been living in France (Charente-Maritime) since 1982 with my husband and my two sons, who have long been flying on their own. I am also the grandmother of two adorable teenagers, a girl and a boy.
I started making cardss in 1998, during our last stay in Africa. Very simple at the beginning and with the means at hand.
It was only in 2005 that I really started making cards on a regular basis. The first ones in 3D, embroidered, embossed... stamps were added at the end of 2011. That's when it became a real passion, which I quickly wanted to share - in early 2012, I created my blog "Let's take time..."
I don't have a particular style, and my cards can be very different from time to time - let's just say it depends a bit on the mood of the moment.
My other passions are tennis, hiking, cooking and entertaining friends over a good meal, gardening, reading and escaping on the internet.
