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.
