Pootlers Design Team Totally Trees Week 1

Pootler's Design Team

Pootlers Design Team Totally Trees

Oh it is a shiny new month and that means a shiny new Design Team!

Let me introduce them to you all, Linda Parker and one of her team Linda Noakes, along with Ann Chambers and Fiona Whitehead are heading up October’s design team and I sent them all a wonderful stamp set that I am also in love with. Totally Trees. In fact, on Sunday you’ll see what I made with the set!

I’m also excited to share that I have now created a Pinterest Board with all the past design projects on it and of course, new ones will be added each week. Please do check it out HERE and book mark it!

As you know, at the start of each month I invite the new team to introduce themselves, so here goes.

Ann Chambers – I will be 65 in a few weeks and I love being a demonstrator with Stampin Up. I love to read but my main passion is crafting. I have a great partner who cares for me as I am disabled and can’t get out on my own. I’ts never too late to learn new things and make new friends and that’s just what I have done in the Pootlers. I will have been with Stampin Up two years this month starting out as a hobby demo but then I got a boost when I recruited my very first team member who helped me to realize just what I can achieve.

Linda Noakes My name is Linda and I have been with Stampin’ Up! for six months although I have only really just got started due to ‘life happenings’. I hadn’t heard of Stampin’ Up! until I happened upon Linda Parker’s You Tube channel. I made contact with Linda because I wanted to make one of her projects myself and I knew virtually nothing about stamps, card, inks etc at that point.  Linda talked me about the project and actually sent me her demonstrated card which was just what I needed as I could see the high quality of all the materials used.  That card convinced me to sign up as a demo. You can find my newly launched blog at http:/  Maybe one day I will venture into the world of You Tube too!

Linda Parker My name is Linda and I have been a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator for three years. My love of crafting began many years ago when my kids were little. I used to craft from a little “crafty corner” in the spare room.  Now my babies have grown and are flying the nest I am fortunate to have a room dedicated my papercrafting, where I can squirrel myself away and make as much mess as I like when I like, experimenting and creating new projects !! I discovered Stampin’ Up! or rather Sam Hammond via her You Tube tutorials. I joined her team and became hooked.    I now have my own fabulous little team of Demonstrators. I have been amazed and encouraged by the reaction of people to my own projects and try to post tutorials as regularly as I am able on You Tube and on my Blog “Papercraft With Crafty”.  

Fiona Whitehead Hi, I am Fiona married to Jonathan for 31 years and mum to Emma 25 and Chris 22. I have two dogs, a Welsh Springer and an English Springer and two cats. I live in a beautiful village in Hampshire. However, I haven’t always lived here and did at one time live in Houston, Texas. This is where my love of Stampin Up was born back in 2002 when I was first introduced to it in Texas. I was thrilled to find SU in the UK and have been a Demo now for nearly a year. When I am not playing with paper you will find me either singing or out walking the dogs. I’m thrilled to be in Sam Hammond’s team and to be part of the Design Team for October.
