Pootlers Design Team – Balloon Builders Week 1

Pootlers Design Team – Balloon Builders Week 1

Pootler's Design Team

Yay it’s a brand new month, so that means a brand new stamp set and a brand new Design Team!

Let me share who they are – Jerim Dickins, Louise Thomas, Sarah Plumb, Karen Taylor and Caroline Helwigh. There are 5 of them this month because there are 5 Thursdays in June!

As before, I’m letting them introduce themselves to you, and of course, there is one photo from each of them, with more on their blogs with links to them.

Karen Taylor “I’m originally from Cornwall, although I live in France now, and was working in Operating Theatres before we moved here. I’ve always made my own cards, and love that joining Stampin’ Up! has given me more scope with my card making. As well as being a Stampin’ Up! demo I also run a vintage shop on Etsy which I love doing. And when not card making and looking for vintage pieces for my shop, I’m usually to be found trying to keep our four goats in their pen – the grass is always greener out there for them.”

Sarah Plumb “My name is Sarah and I live in Swansea, South Wales. I’ve been married to David for 25 years and we have two grown up children. I work part-time in the Civil Service. Since I was a small child I’ve loved arts and crafts. Over the years my hobby has been mainly painting and drawing and more recently have dabbled in a bit of furniture up-cycling. A few years ago having watched some craft shows on television I bought my first die cutting machine and haven’t looked back. I have since discovered Stampin’ Up! and am now completely hooked!”

Caroline Helwigh “I’m Caroline and have been paper crafting for the last three years after deciding to make my own wedding invites. After seeing how easy it was to create something so personal and beautiful I was quickly hooked so quickly signed up as an SU demo.
I love sharing my love of SU through regular blog posts and YouTube videos and am delighted to be part of the Pootler’s design team for June. Outside of SU, I am happily married to my gorgeous and supporting husband Christian. We have a beautiful three year old daughter, Eva and another baby on the way. I juggle Stampin’ Up with a very corporate full time job in Risk Management as well as trying to be a good wife and mummy so life is pretty hectic but I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Jerim Dickins “Hi, my name is Jerim. I was born and raised in South Korea and now live in England with my husband James whom I’m met whilst studying and working in Singapore. After I fell pregnant with my daughter, Jessica, we decided to move back to the UK to be closer to James’ family and we have since had our second child, Jacob. I’m an independent Stampin’ Up demonstrator with a passion for all things pretty. My major at University was design, and throughout my life I have always loved being creative whether it be painting, drawing, knitting, modelling with clay or paper crafts.”

Louise Thomas “I am Louise, a wife, mom to a teenager and a fur-mommy from Birmingham UK who loves card making, most things crafty and my Stampin’ Up journey!”
