We'd also like to welcome Hazel as our guest designer for this week.
As a child I also loved anything to do with paper and loved drawing (but not painting) - did a lot of sketching when I was at secondary school - loved doing portraits, still life etc. I loved doing anything that required cutting, sticking ...
At some point in my adult life I discovered cross stitch - for quite a while I said I'd never do it because I preferred embroidery, but once I started I was hooked on it, but I can't do it now because of physical difficulties.
Cross stitching is how I got into cardmaking, then started to produce cards on the computer and then cardmaking itself about ten years ago. I love all sorts of techniques, including stamping.
Over the past three years or so I've dabbled in scrapbooking, but still consider myself a novice – I also like making, altering and decorating notebooks, mini albums, tins and boxes etc.
