Pootlers Design Team – Bookcase Builder Week 1

Pootlers Design Team – Bookcase Builder Week 1

Pootler's Design Team

So we are back after a 2 week hiatus for my SpringWatch series, and this team are going to be doing just 3 projects for you. They’re picking up the first week of March aswell (it’s a 5 week month) so I hope you will love all the projects they share using the remarkably versatile Bookcase Builder stamp set.

However, as it’s the first week, I’m letting them introduce themselves to you all.

Janice Thomson “Janice here from JazzleDazzle. I have been a crafter forever. I remember using all my Mum’s wool stash when I discovered how to make pom poms. I have loved sharing my passion for crafting over the years as a Guider, childminder, Mother and now Grandmother. I started cardmaking when I made the invitations for my wedding with my very very patient husband Peter 9 years ago. January 2016 I popped on my friends Stampin’ Up page to buy a swallowtail stamp and somehow ten minutes later I had signed up and what fun I am having. I’ve made beautiful friends who constantly challenge and inspire me – thank you all xxx”

Jessica Hawtin “Hi, my name is Jess and I’m 25 years old. I have just become a new homeowner and cannot wait to let my creativity loose to decorate the place. I’ve always been creative, writing stories and drawing pictures as a child. Since then I’ve expanded my creativity by starting my own candle business as well as joining Stampin’ Up! and I am trying to combine both businesses together, and so far I feel I have been successful. I am so excited to be a part of the Pootles Design Team and cannot wait to showcase my ideas.”

Laurie Jennings “Hi, I’m Laurie, aka Paperjay Crafts. I started papercrafting about 13 years ago and love making pretty things from paper and card. I joined Stampin’ Up! last year and love sharing this creative hobby with friends in real life and online. I am so honoured to be sharing my designs with you for the next few weeks…I hope they inspire you.”

Nathalie Deschaux “J’ai 53 ans, 6 enfants, dont 5 sont indépendants et la petite dernière de 11 ans. Je vis en France, au Croisic, une petite ville de Bretagne au bord de l’océan.
J’ai commencé à faire des cartes il y a un an, et j’ai découvert les produits stampin up. Je suis tombée sous le charme de ces produits, puis sur YouTube j’ai découvert les vidéos de Sophie et voilà…maintenant je suis complètement accro.
Mon but est d’arriver à faire de cette passion mon activité principale. Mais j’ai encore du travail…!!!!
Voilà Sam, tu sais tout ou presque..!!!😋😋
Encore merci pour tout ce que tu fais, peut être à bientôt.😘😘

Sandra Riley “Hi my name is Sandra, I have been a card making and papercraft addict for more than ten years. I joined Stampin’ Up! In January and I absolutely love it! I am excited to be part of this challenge.”
