Pootlers Design Team – Just Keep Swimming Week 1

Pootlers Design Team – Just Keep Swimming Week 1

Pootler's Design Team


Yay a new design team is in the house! These amazing demonstrators have been tasked with sharing projects for you using the somewhat overlooked Just Keep Swimming stamp set. It’s one that has proven challenging for many, but I know they’re going to share some incredible ideas with you all. As ever, with a new team, I shall let them introduce themselves to you all.

Julie Addison “Hi, I’m Julie from My Luna Crafts. I’ve been crafting in many different forms for as long as I can remember. I switched to papercrafting and I started watching Youtube videos for inspiration and found Stampin’ Up! in America. I loved how everything matched from ink to cardstock to ribbon and buttons! Then SU came to the UK and I loved playing with the products. After a few years I discovered Sam. Her friendly, easy to follow video tutorials were great and I knew she was the one I wanted to sign up with when the time came.
I got married in October last year and after having a Stampin’ Up! wedding (everything was made using SU products) I decided it was time to sign up. I have now been a demonstrator for 2 months and I’m loving every minute of it. I’m so happy to be part of the Design Team for March and I can’t wait to show you what I can do!

Louise Deeley “Hi I’m Louise from By Hope. I found Sam on YouTube nearly 3 years ago and instantly became an avid fan of her easily explained videos and projects. However it wasn’t until I left my job in a busy high end hair salon that I felt I had the time to commit and become a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. I adore paper crafting and I also make other small gift items too. I am thrilled to be part of the Pootles Design team, and March is a dear month for me as it always has my two children’s birthdays (mine too!) and Mother’s Day. I can’t wait to share my designs and inspirations this month with you!”

Bettina Ehlich “Hello, my name is Tina, I live in Germany and I am crazy about crafting. I play with different materials but my favourite is paper. After a long day at work, spending most of it in front of a computer, there is nothing better than getting ink, stamps and paper out and make a card or a box. Creating something beautiful with my own hands does charge my batteries and keeps my spirits up. Being part of Sam’s team is most inspiring and fun and the best decision I have ever made. Thank you Sam for letting me take part in this challenge.”

Victoria Bunn “Hello my name is Victoria from Crafty Heaven, I’ve been crafting for about 9 years. I love paper crafting making cards, mini albums, gift boxes and many more. I have a you tube channel where I like to share my projects with other fellow crafters, and it’s a great way to speak to other people. I joined stampin up in November 2016 and being a demonstrator is fantastic, stampin up products are wonderful I just love how all their products coordinate together.
I’ve been watching Sam’s videos for a few years now and she is so talented, and such a lovely lady. And I’m so delighted to be a guest designer for her.”

Chantal Valette “Je m’appelle Chantal. J’ai 55 ans et suis maman de 2 enfants de 31 et 29 ans. J’adorerais être grand-mère mais ce n’est pas encore à l’ordre du jour malheureusement, snifff. Je vis seule avec mon chien avec lequel je fais de grandes balades en forêt ou le long du canal. Je suis responsable administratif pour une association professionnel. J’ai attrapé le virus du scrap, il y a environ 2 ans et attends la retraite pour pouvoir m’y consacrer pleinement… a priori, ça n’est pas demain la veille
