Hi, my name is Danielle Rose I am from South Yorkshire.

I originally started my craft journey sewing. I used to make dresses and blankets for my daughters. One day while browsing YouTube I came across a paper craft tutorial and another and another. I was hooked straight away believe it or not I used to use my tail comb and a ruler to make the score lines on my card before going on to buy the proper tools. I laugh about it now when I look back, but it did work perfectly at the time that was about three years ago. I haven't touched my sewing machine since.

As well as paper crafting, I am a full-time mum to my four beautiful daughters and wife to my amazing husband Simon. I enjoy going on walks and bike rides in the summer.

Our youngest daughter has autism, so I have to stay home while hubby works. I needed to find something to keep me busy while being home all day. Paper crafting is perfect as I get to do what I love and be a mum and the same time. I also do tutorials on my YouTube channel showing how I make the projects I design 

I enjoy using both stamps and dies when creating my projects, I do prefer to make 3d items but still enjoy making cards here and there.

My favourite brands to use are Tonic, Tim Holtz and Crafters Companion.

Hi I’m Sam and I live in the Southwest of England with the countryside and beaches on my doorstep.

I first started scrapbooking as a child in the 80's and have many scrapbooks. Over the years I've tried most crafts but my days now are filled with my main passion and what fills up all the hours and that’s paper craft... I simply love it and you will mostly find me in my craft room making 3D paper projects and greeting cards, with a few unusual things thrown in here and there.

I have always been creative and used to make handmade cards as a small child, both my parents are creative so it must run in the family. About 4 years ago my mum showed me Heat Embossing and from there I started card making more seriously.

My other hobbies are Sewing and Upholstery, I love finding bold prints and making soft furnishings. 

A lot of my inspiration come from my travels, I've been fortunate to I've travelled to many countries and the colours, shapes and textiles all inspire my projects. I also enjoy playing around with card stock and creating unusual folds and find many of my designs start from this process.

I love First Edition papers for their beautiful designs and use these regularly in my 3D paper crafts. I also love Woodware stamps for their quirky and wonderfully designed stamps which I enjoy colouring with my watercolour pencils. I also like many of the Cosmic Shimmer products which I use when scrapbooking.

Hi, I’m Laura and I live in a small town from Warwickshire.

I have been crafting since forever. I learned to sew, knit and crochet when I was a little girl, than I started painting and always wished to become an artist. This is how I got into arts high school. I’ve done sewing (e.g.: bow ties, neckties and other accessories, dolls, worked with felt), painting, worked with polymer clay and resin, last year learned lino-cutting. I never stop trying new things.

I started paper crafting last year when I got selected as a design team member for another company, although I tried before to make Christmas cards, but didn’t had the courage to go further. Since then I learned a lot and always try to improve my techniques.

I love paper crafting as you can never get bored and the possibilities are endless.

I like crafting anything anytime, but I try to limit myself to just a few crafts. At the moment I’m more focused on paper crafting and painting. 

I get inspired mostly by the supplies I have and usually buy them with an idea in mind (or just because they’re pretty!). YouTube is a great resource for learning new techniques (I love Jennifer McGuire’s tutorials) and inspires me in filming my tutorials.

I love die-cutting and embossing, as it's a fast way to cut intricate shapes and create a 3D illusion and stamping, as it allows me to use my colouring skills.

My favourite brand is Trimcraft (anything First Edition or Dovecraft), their paper pads are amazing and great quality as well. I also enjoy using Xcut, Lawn Fawn, Ranger, Tsukineko, Creative Expressions, Woodware, Tonic Studios.
