Hello Emilia, Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I'm working mother of two ( Naughty) boys and wife to very supportive man! I've started cardmaking two years ago but I have been crafting in some shape or form for as long as I can remember!

What is your favourite Trimcraft product?
I like lots of Trimcraft products and have few favourites but the best one for me is beautifully designed and embossed First Edition J'adore 12x12 paper! It's suitable for many occasions.

What was your favourite project ever crafted?
Don't have favourite project but I really like to make notebooks and mini albums.

What is your top crafting tip?
I think my top crafting tip 'have fun' while you’re creating :)

What craft trends are you liking at the moment?
At the moment I like everything vintage inspired.

If you were stuck on a desert island (luckily with electricity!) what craft essentials could you not be without?

I would love to have with me my Sizzix Big Shot not only because it cuts through many surfaces but also because it's very pretty :) Then I would have to have some dies, buttons, lace, brads, flowers and paper

Welcome Katie, Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I am a born and bred Brummie and have been crafting since 2005, I started off creating scrapbook layouts but have ventured off on to other crafts.

What is your favourite Trimcraft product?
 I love anything that is vintage or shabby chic so the Curiosity  Corner range has become one of my favourites.

What was your favourite project ever crafted?
My favourite project I ever created was a layout called Special Day as it was published in Life Paper Scrapbook magazine and I feel that's the point when my creative ability went up a level.

What is your top crafting tip?
 My top crafting tip is to use a make-up sponge when applying ink to layers of paper as it layers the ink  on evenly and gives it a soft look.

What craft trends are you liking at the moment?
 I like to experiment and try out new techniques but my current favourite is mixed media. I just love to add different textures to my projects.

If you were stuck on a desert island (luckily with electricity!) what craft essentials could
you not be without?

I could not be without my die-cutting machine it is such a versatile tool.

And finally hi Mandy, Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I am a creative mess maker.  I card make, scrapbook, alter and play with mixed media.  I have rediscovered my love of painting and drawing too.  I love nothing more than getting my hands inky, covered in paint and fingers glued together. I love the surprise of the finished creation, still gives me goose bumps.  I love sharing my work also, so that it may be an inspiration.

What is your favourite Trimcraft product?
My favourite product is Santoro Mirabelle A4 Paper Collection, I am just smitten :)

What was your favourite project ever crafted?
A mini album I created so that I can fill each page with all the pretty things I love.  It is a mix of pages of loved music, authors, papers etc.  I love how each page reflects me and it is a keepsake that I can keep adding too.

What is your top crafting tip?
Not to over think a project, just go for it!  Start with a rough idea of a project in mind and allow that to be your starting point.  Then allow yourself to go off course.  It is creative and unexpected; you will be amazed what happens.

What craft trends are you liking at the moment?
I am in love with how mixed media has crept into paper crafting.  It allows me to play with my art supplies too.  I also love that paper crafts had expanded to home decor, allowing us to decorate our homes with our beloved pretty papers.

If you were stuck on a desert island (luckily with electricity!) what craft essentials could
you not be without?

Pattern paper, scissors, bone folder and a brown ink pad......all set then for happiness with those.
