Dear Trimcraft, crafting is my passion and life. I've been crafting since I was a child and I got my first craft knife when I was 7 years old, I started making Christmas stencils and ornaments then. I am obsessed with cardmaking and decorating. I try to use a variety of techniques in my makes from stamping, embossing, folding, decoupage and jewellery making. I started my blog over 5 years ago: http://quillinglady.blogspot.co.uk/ , here is my fanpage on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/handmadequillinglady/ Crafting makes my life colourful and full of joy. My cards have been published in seceral magazines including Quick Cards Made Easy, Papercraft Inspirations (curretnly I am part of Readers DT there), Creative Stamping etc., here is the link to all my publications: http://quillinglady.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/magazine I think there is nothing better than handmade gift as we not only give our time but also our heart in each make. Happy crafting!

Hi there! My name is Zara and I love to craft! In my spare time, I love making greeting cards and jewellery. I've been making cards for friends and family for years now - I always make one-off cards and love to learn new craft skills. This year, I decided to start selling on Etsy (uniquecreativebyza.etsy.com). I have a blog (uniquecreativebyza.com) and I can be found on Instagram (@uniquecreativebyza), Facebook (uniquecreativebyza), Twitter (@uniquecbyza) and Pinterest (uniquecreativebyza). Thanks for this lovely opportunity, Zara

Hello, Thank you for the opportunity to join your design team. I have been crafting for 10 years now and enjoy many crafts from knitting and sewing through to card making and painting and enjoyed incorporating them when I can. I have just recently started to use Instagram and currently looking to start a blog. I would love to join the design team and share crafting with everyone I can. I have uploaded my makes to the inspiration area Kirsty

I'm 28 and have loved being cafty ever since I was a child. I like papercrafting: card making, scrapbooking, decorating maché boxes and paper bags. I upload my handmade cards to instagram @scatteredpapercrafts and looking to create another instagram for my projects that I make. I'm not apart of any DT but I would love to be. I can't get enough of paper and embellishments and spending an hour or so being crafty.

ObstinatePursuit

Hello! I would love to be on the Trimcraft DT as I would really love the opportunity to work with a UK based company (I think we're a little over-looked sometimes!) and I love to make, teach and share my love for crafting. I'm currently on a couple of other DTs (but have made sure that I would have the time to commit to Trimcraft before applying.) You can find me on the forums here as ObstinatePursuit - and my social media accounts are all in that name as well. You can find me on Blogger, Instagram, Facebook - and lately - YouTube! I'm either 'clean and simple' or 'all the sparkles' when it comes to crafting. Nothing in between! I love to make cards, scrapbook, make jewellery and I love making little trinkets for around the home. I especially love wrapping gifts! I'd be delighted to be considered amongst all of this talent. Good luck with the search! Clair :)

Hello! I've just finished a 3 month stint on my first ever design team, the Fiskarettes UK Facebook page, and I'm really hoping this exciting opportunity with Trimcraft could be my next one! I've been interested to see as part of your transformation into The Craft Blog that there's a real push for all crafts, not 'just' cards - cards will always be my comfort zone but for Fiskarettes I've been making an effort to drop other projects into the mix and I've really enjoyed the challenge - from origami corner bookmarks and canvases to nail art using punches and edging scissors with my beloved washi tape :) I love pushing myself to try new techniques and designs, paper patterns I might not normally choose, and to experiment with different colours, materials and tools – I taught myself to crochet a little flower for a card, got my head around heat embossing with the help of the lovely people behind WOW!, dabble in baking, and I've got a pyrography set crying out for me to give it a go! Embracing creativity can be therapeutic, fun, exciting, sentimental and everything in between, and it's such a pleasure when you're able to inspire others to discover that for themselves. I especially enjoy making cards for people I care about - tailored to them, their likes and interests. The best reaction to something I've made was from my brother - when he saw the 'I do like to be beside the seaside' card I've submitted for this DT call, he was amazed I'd noticed that he pipes up with that ditty every now and then, and so touched he actually cried a bit! That's the level of thoughtfulness I strive to put into everything, and I'm so proud that he liked it enough to get it framed for the wall. I'm on instagram as sarahmaydethis where I'm adding new projects as I go and gradually filling in my 'back catalogue' with #throwbackthursday :) Thanks for considering my application. I'll cross my fingers to hear from you! Sarah

Hello! I would love to join the fabulous designers on the Trimcraft design team. I have admired from afar for a long time now and have finally plucked up the courage to apply! I have been crafting from the age of 16 (now 25) and over time my style and type of craft has evolved and adapted to include a variety of crafts including: card making, home decor, scrapbooking, project life, sewing, jewellery making, journalling & planning. I haven't been on any design teams before as a designer, I was however a social media coordinator for The Crafty Maven Getaway. I think now is a good time in my crafty career to start getting involved as a designer as I have recently moved house and now have my very own craft room where I can spend dedicated time for crafting. I have uploaded 3 projects to the inspiration gallery for you to have a look at. You can find more examples of my creations over on my blog or other social media pages: http://www.hiddenquirks,blogspot.com http://www.instagram.com/hiddenquirks http://www.facebook.com/hiddenquirks Twitter: @hiddenquirks http://www.pinterest.com/hayleyquarmby/ Email: [email protected] I have also recently started making Youtube videos and you can find my channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLoRynBynNqhE3BJ3RXbnrw/ Thank you for this opportunity and I hope you enjoy my projects! Thanks, Hayley Q (Hidden Quirks)

I was so excited when I saw this DT call go out! I'm Lilian and I've been cardmaking for almost four years. You can find me on Instagram @merrymakewell and I blog at mrsmerrymakewell.blogspot.co.uk. I also enjoy general papercrafting and occasionally dabble in mixed media. I'm not really sure how to describe my style as I do like to try out different styles and techniques, but my cards tend to be quite simple but colourful. I love pattern, colour and die cutting - all of which Trimcraft do really well so being on the design team would be like being called to the mother ship!

I really hope I'm not too late to enter this - it sort of slipped my mind. I love Trimcraft products but must confess to a tendency to hoard them especially the gorgeous First Editions paper packs which are too beautiful to use - they bring out my inner Gollum *whispers precious!!* I've been crafting for around 17 years and have had a blog since 2014 and I'd love the excuse to blog more often which I would do if I was lucky enough to be chosen as one of Trimcraft's design team. My blog is https://smwcraftynook.blogspot.co.uk/ and I try to add a new post once a week though it sometimes ends up being once a fortnight. I've never been on a design team but would love to be on yours because the quality of your products are second to none and very easy to work with. I like making cards mostly but do make the odd project such as treat boxes for Halloween (mini milk cartons last year and gable boxes this) and decorations and crackers for Christmas. My favourite sort of card is a kinetic card or one that's a lot more to it then it first appears. I especially like ones that challenge me because I love puzzling out how things work or tweaking them so they can be made out of an A4 sheet of card instead of the USA standard sized card. Social media wise I'm active on Facebook and have Pinterest and Twitter accounts but I'm not that active on either at the moment (I don't have a smart phone and adding stuff via the PC is a tad time consuming). I'm not the best crafter (some of the projects on the inspiration pages are awe inspiring!) but I am a very enthusiastic and passionate crafter (my hubby says I'm a craft bore lol). I hope this isn't too long an application ;)

Wow what an amazing opportunity! I've been crafting for the last 13 years now. I've dabbled in quite a lot over the years but really love scrapbooking and card making mostly. Recently I've got into creative planning and also journaling. I also spend quite alot of time cake making for friends and family, over the past 3 years. Thank you for the opportunity, Katharine

Hello my name is Martina and I love to be considered for your design team. Cannot remember a time when I did not craft in some way. Knitting and sewing taught to me by my Mother. Cross stitch followed from that. A friend introduced me to card making about 10 years ago and the rest as they say is history. Not on any design teams, but have done a couple of one off design team cards for Quick Cards Made Easy. Love papers, dies, embellishments and a bit of upcycling. Think it’s amazing to start with a blank piece of card and create something totally unique, or transform something you were going to bin into something useful. Like join in with the challenges run by the other crafters and Trimcraft . I am on Facebook though do not currently post my makes there but would be happy to do so. Usually add my projects to this gallery as Martinalucy and the Docrafts site as crafTina. Recently started a blog at https://martinasmakes.blogspot.co.uk/ Trimcraft products are great to work with, both for design and quality, so I would love to be part of the team.
