Can you remember the very first card you made?

Yes I can totally remember the first card I made – it was a stamped butterfly coloured with coloured pencils mounted onto an A6 card with some handmade paper and glitter glue! I think my Gran might even still have it!

Who is your inspiration in the craft world?

I would have to say it would be my Grandma, she’s the one who got me started crafting from when I was about 7 and really inspired my passion for stamping. She’s very arty too and does lots of different crafts – over the years she has done mosaics, painting, teddy bear making and lots more!

When do you come up with your ideas & designs?

I’m constantly drawing and coming up with new ideas, I just love playing with new goodies! I tend to draw for myself first as to what I want and can envisage on a card or finished project then go from there and one design tends to lead to another!

What was your first “when I grow up I want to be….?”

That’s a difficult one! I guess I’ve always loved crafting and one thing kind of lead to another, and now I get to craft and share my passion for craft everyday which is fabulous!

Do you have any pets?

Yes I have four gorgeous Golden Retrievers, Rodney, Elsa, Millie and Sunny.

When you are not crafting and doing all things glitter what else do you fill your time with for fun?

I love going out walking with the dogs, especially up to the coast which we are very lucky to live near! I also enjoy watching the football – Newcastle obviously!!

Describe your perfect Christmas day?

For me a perfect Christmas Day would be spent at home with my family, hopefully with some snow outside.

Do you get nervous before going on TV?

I always tend to get a little bit nervous before going on TV, usually on the journey down trying to make sure I’ve remembered everything for my demos!
