I have been a crafter for as long as I can remember.   Ever since my Mum bought home a box of card making supplies I have always loved card making and memory keeping through scrapbooks and mini albums.  

I was introduced to Stampin' Up! when I had my first daughter, Florence, and crafting time became limited.  I used to spend my craft time matching papers and colours before getting down to the actual making so I instantly fell in love with how Stampin' Up! products coordinate together with matching colours, papers, inks and embellishments.  

I became a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in October 2013 and I have not looked back.  Since joining, I have got married, had another daughter, Emily and in 2019 we became the proud owners of Dave, a miniature Dachshund puppy!I am based in Lower Halstow which is a small village between Rainham and Sittingbourne in Kent.  I live with my Husband and two young daughters, Florence and Emily.  I also work part-time as a Clerk to a Multi Academy Trust Board so life is very busy!  

I am lucky to have a "craft barn" in my garden which is my escape into crafting heaven! I run regular events each month that include:

These sessions are new for 2020 and will take place on the 1st Monday each month at Dobbies Garden Centre in Gillingham.  This is a drop-in event between 10.00-11.30am and booking is not required (although it is nice to know who to expect).
You will need to purchase your drinks from the restaurant and the cost for the session is £3.00.  This includes all materials and step-by-step tuition to make one hand stamped card.

3rd February
2nd March

These sessions take place on the 2nd & 4th Monday each month at The Pantry, a lovely coffee shop on the site of Fort Amherst in Chatham.  

This is a drop-in event between 10.30 - 11.45 and booking is not required.  

Entrance is £5 and includes first hot drink of your choice plus all materials and tuition to make one hand stamped card.

Here are a selection of cards that I designed for those who attended a recent Coffee and Card event. 

My monthly card classes take place on the 3rd Tuesday each month at The Holy Trinity Church Hall in Twydall Gillingham.  

Classes are always themed with the option to add product and attend the class for FREE.  Booking is essential and you can find out more by clicking HERE.

If you have a craft of choice then why not join me at one of my regular Craft Social Evenings? 

We meet on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday evening every month at the Holy Trinity Church Hall in Twydall, Gillingham to craft, natter and generally enjoy some "me time".

Entrance is £5 and includes refreshments.  Free parking is available on site and is disabled friendly

Newcomers can attend their first session for FREE in 2020

If you are unable to attend any of these sessions, or fancy hosting a workshop at a venue of your choice, I also offer private workshops and parties. These can be themed around an occasion or product of your choice and I provide everything that is required for a minimal charge.  

Stampin' Up! is a huge part of my life, one that has given me the opportunity to make friends from across the globe and all while enjoying the art of papercrafting!  As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator I attend regular team training and corporate events.  Not only can I buy product at a discount, I can also see and buy new product before it is released.  

I am really lucky to also have a team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that call me their "Team Leader".  We are collectively known as the "Stampin' Stars Team" and to be able to share my love of papercrafting is the best job ever!

We meet regularly for team get together's to discuss (and get excited about) what is happening in the Stampin' Up! world, share our projects and ideas, eat cake and of course Craft!
