Hi I’m Lyndsey, I'm a 40 year old mom of 2 from Wolverhampton, been with my hubby for 23 years, married for 17.

I've been crafting for about 18 years, started off with cross stitch making a baby sampler for my son when he was born and a few pieces for my home. This moved to making little cross stitch cards one christmas and eventually I started dabbling with papercraft making my son's christening invitations. When my daughter was born 13 years ago I had to give up work to look after her due to her health condition and found then my cardmaking progressed from just the occasional dabbling into something more, eventually setting up a blog and sharing my creations.

Over the years I have been on various design teams, designed for magazines and at one point I owned my own craft shop. After a lot of persuasion from customers I began teaching weekly card making classes in 2009, only stopping late last year when I took the plunge and went back into employment for a steel fabrications company.

I love making fancy fold and shaped cards and am always on the lookout for new ideas to try out and share with others. I am greatly inspired by other crafters, always checking out Instagram and Pinterest and often will do my own twist on something I see. I feel I am also inspired by the seasons and can see my colour combinations and palettes change throughout the year as the seasons change.

I love cute stamps and enjoy a good colouring session, but also like the clean and simple look too and I wouldn't be without my cutting machine and selection of dies. Some of my fave brands are First Edition, Dovecraft, Echo Park, Lawn Fawn, MFT and Sizzix.

When I am not crafting you will find me with my head in a good book and I love to chill out a relax with a good chick flick or (weird as my husband calls them!) TV programmes such as Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, anything to do with vampires, witches, zombies etc I'm there!

Dinosaur Birthday Card

12/03/2019 11:50

  1. For this card I used the two different dinosaurs, and used brown and green card for them

  2. I then cut out the present, with the box and balloons in bright colours.

  3. For the background I used the shape paper from the paper pack and covered the whole of the black card with it. For the middle piece I used the rainbow paper, cutting it into strip across the card.

  4. I cut the happy birthday title out of black card so it stood out from all the colours.
  5. I assembled the card with the dinosaurs either side of the present and balloons with their party hat on!

Posted in Cards with Diecuts Katharine Burchell By Katharine Burchell

Hi I’m Reeda and I’m from South Yorkshire.

I got into crafting because I have suffered from very bad anxiety since I turned 22. To help me I got into card making, it helped to take my mind off my worrying thoughts and eased my tensions.

I have been into papercrafts since I was 22, I enjoy art therapy so got into colouring books. I practice blending with my copic markers. I enjoy creating handmade box frames, decorating mini canvases and using mixed media but have not really created a lot of projects in this field.

I love watching YouTube tutorials and I’m part of a lot of Facebook craft groups where I gain inspiration from other crafters. I often use Pinterest to gain ideas if I’m struggling with a particular project.

I used to love die cutting but now I’m more into practicing my colouring skills so enjoy stamping and embossing. My favourite brands are Lawn Fawn, Crafters Companion, and Hunkydory Crafts.
