I am 36 years old and have been making cards on and off for about 7 years. Although I am a qualified Dispensing Optician I cannot escape my love for paper and pretty ribbons! I am a freelance Card Designer/Demonstrator and I am also a regular contributor to Cardmaking and Papercraft, Making Cards and Crafts Beautiful magazines. I am proud to be on the Design Teams for Joanna Sheen,Wild Rose Studio and just recently, Nitwits Collections.
I was named as National Cardmaker of the Year 2010 which really changed my life and runner up in Simply cards and Papercrafts Card Designer of the year competition 2012.
I run the Joanna Sheen challenge blog which won the Best Crafty Blog Award in the recent Craft awards ran by Crafts Beautiful and Let's Make Cards magazines. I was so thrilled as it is only a year old and it was my idea to put it together as I love Joanna's fab products.
I decided to set up my own challenge blog as I had so much stuff that I didn't get chance to use so I thought an all kinds of crafts challenge where the DT can make and use what they wanted seemed such a fab idea!
I am very happily married and live in Blackpool, UK. I have a gorgeous little girl Tayla who is almost 3 and a little boy called Nathan who is almost 1 - they seriously keep me on my toes!
I love being a mummy - I only wish there were more hours in a day!
I love most types of crafts but tend to stick to papercrafts as my craft room is already busting at the seams and I think my hubby would divorce me if I had any more hobbies! Lol
I am happy to accept commissions and design team work, just get in touch!
Thanks for looking!
