Have you ever wondered who the talented crafters are who make some of the amazing samples you see on our website and Create and Craft TV? Well here they are – meet the fabulous members of our design team…
I’ve been crafting for about 15 years due to illness and I was on the mycraftstudio design team for Diane years ago and now I’m on the Scanncut design team which I’ve been on about 3 years and I just love what you can make with the machine I also love to use dies and the Scanncut in my card making.
I am a married mother of two and nanny to two who has been on the DT for the scanncut since it was formed. I have also done samples for TL, Fleurs and Carleys Vintage folk art signature collection. I also contribute designs to the Cutting Craftorium magazine. I started crafting as a way to keep myself busy when I lost my career due to ill health, and as a lot of us do I became addicted to crafting. My biggest joy is paper crafting especially 3D projects which is why I love the Cutting Craftorium USB’s so much. I also help out at the crafting live events, I love meeting the customers/fellow crafters at the workshops and the shows.
My name is Linda Trott…I have worked for Stephanie Weightman since 2007 so I can claim the honour of being the longest serving member on various teams including My Craft Studio, Scan n Cut and Dies …I have been crafting since childhood and have done many things including knitting for London and Paris fashion houses and learning dressmaking and tailoring at night school but I enjoy all crafts. I also have a very successful market stall selling my handmade cards so all in all I’m an very busy crafter…and I love it!!!
I am 39, live in Scunthorpe, I am married with 2 children aged 19 and 10. Have 2 cats they are totally crazy but so loveable. My day job, I work as a kitchen assistant in primary schools.
I first got into crafting when I was a child, taking after my grandma I used to do some crochet but don’t do a lot of that now, I used to love making cards when I was younger with pre-cut toppers etc, took after my mum and auntie for that.
My auntie died almost 2 years ago now and my uncle gave me my aunties scan n cut machine and everyday since then I have used the scan n cut to make anything and everything I can, I absolutely love crafting.
There was call for the design team for the Cutting Craftorium, so I decided to apply for it and then in February 2018 I got an email asking me if I wanted to do some samples for the next Cutting Craftorium USB, I was so excited.
I have recently joined the Screen Sensation design team, I absolutely love every minute of it and never even thought I would get on the design team, it is a dream come true.
