“Hi, I am Amy and I love being creative! My first crafting projects started with sewing at the age of 8 when my mum bought me my very own vintage hand operated Singer Sewing machine. I loved it so much I started making clothes for all my dolls then as I grew older I began making my own clothes, accessories and jewellery. This progressed into a career as a retail clothing buyer. In the last 6 years I have discovered the world of papercrafting after designing my own wedding stationery!" Amy
“I started card making in February 2004, as I wanted to make a special card for my aunt - I bought a few docrafts products and I haven't looked back since. I've designed for magazines in the UK and in the US over the last 8 years. I primarly love to stamp and use inks but like to try my hand at all types of styles.” Paula
“I currently work as a Production Editor for a publishing company (making books) so my life revolves around paper! I have been card making for just under 3 years now and I have already filled my gallery with nearly 600 projects! My favourite techniques are die cutting, layering and using fluid chalk to achieve vintage effects. I make cards almost daily and love trying lots of new techniques to challenge myself.” Sarah
“Hello there, my name is Mags, I am a fifty something girl who lives in East Yorkshire. I work at a Farm shop and tearooms and am married to a great guy who has the patience of a saint when I give up on the housework to craft! I love all things vintage and shabby chic. When papercrafting I love to use texture, colour and dimension in my work. My craft style is “shabby vintage” which always involves lots of texture.
I hope you enjoy browsing my gallery !" Mags
“I have been crafting since 2005 and have loved the Papermania brand since the beginning. I am a craft blogger and mixed media artist who enjoys a range of crafts, but scrapbooking is my passion. I love to inspire others so I began blogging about my craft projects. Now I am sharing my projects across multiple social media networks. Come join me on my next craft adventure!" Katie
“I first started scrapping in 2004 after my husband Ray gave me a box of scrapping goodies for my birthday - the addiction began and he only has himself to blame! I mainly like to scrap 12" x 12" layouts, but I do have 8" x 8", 6" x 6" and mini albums on the go as well. I also take the odd foray into ‘off the page’ projects and have a bit of a weakness for shiny stuff; in my book, most projects can be improved with a liberal application of bling!” Michelle
“My name is Julie and I am lucky enough to be a mother and grandmother living in the Garden of England, Kent. For many years I have enjoyed teaching lots of different crafts as a partner in Scrapbook Sisters and now
teach for "Ladies That Craft" in Kent. I have recorded four DVD's to date, all produced and published by the Art and Crafts Academy and enjoy sharing my ideas and inspirations in class, on my blogs and with Ladies That Craft Club.” Julie
"Hi, I'm Claire and I live in beautiful Dorset with my hubby and 2 cats Lilly and Belle. I started making cards a few years ago by chance and got addicted. It started off with one box of papers and now I have a whole room full. I work for docrafts and I am also a freelance designer in my spare time - I have had my work published in the Creativity magazine! I am also learning to sew so watch this space..... Think I will be needing to extend my craft room soon!" Claire
"Hi, I'm Emilie and I'm a Digital Media student from Doncaster. I've been crafting since I was very young, and scrapbooking for about 5 years. I love photography, and scrapbooking is a great way of displaying my best photos. Apart from scrapbooking, I'm an illustrator specialising in natural history. My interest in natural history crosses over into my scrapbooking, I love nature themed embellishments and my pages feature many an animal, museum exhibit or my long-maned boyfriend!" Emilie
