I work full time for a company providing on line CPD, and I am a crafter in my free time. I use crafting as a welcome release from the stresses that this role sometimes brings.
I started crafting as a child with a knitting dolly and bits of wool, over time I've have 'had a go' at most things creative. My real love is scrapbooking and papercraft projects, both evolved from my original card making. If I'm not crafting I can be found baking or gardening.
I was on the design team for Craftwork Cards for over two years. I then taught scrapbooking at my local craft shop The Craft Box, now I save my teaching ideas for Scrapstars and love the reaction from the lovely ladies when they finish their layouts. I don't have a particular style, but I am becoming well known at Scrapstars for my interactive layouts. I enjoy trying out different techniques, just to see if I can do them, and then I present them in my classes. Hopefully I will see you at the next Scrapstars retreat.
I'm a part-time hairdresser living in the Midlands. I live with my hubby & two grown up girls & a menagerie of animals, all who often appear in my layouts.
For as long as I can remember, I have loved to create stuff & finally found scrapbooking around 9 years ago. I love that I am recording the memories of our lives, not just the big events but the small trivial stuff that will slip our minds with time. This hobby has also given me many good friends & the opportunity to contribute on some fab design teams, The Cut Shoppe, Feed your Craft & currently Hey Little Magpie & Bramble Fox.
My style is very eclectic & busy & I love using mixed media & all manner of items to bring texture into my layouts, including zips, gauze, doilies & twine, so if this appeals to you I look forward to meeting & teaching you in my classes.
For more examples of my style please take a peak at my IG account; @julie9699 or my Pinterest; Julie Taylor.
As a nod to our tenth year celebration we will be having a mystery guest teacher .... watch this space for further info.
