Hi I'm Tamara, married to a fabulous hubby that is very understanding and supports me through my crafting addiction. We have a beautiful daughter, Savannah who brings us joy and happiness each and everyday. I started paper crafting in 2005 after receiving a handmade card from my cousin it inspired me so much Ithought I would give it a go, since then I've been hooked. The first major craft item I purchased was the Sizzix Big Shot which is still going strong today with my crafting space going from the dinning table to a purpose build cabin at the bottom of the garden and I have to say I think I might need a bit more space. I can be found there most days with glitter, glue, sticky pads and copic's all around (a girl in heaven).

Hi all, I live in Manchester with my boyfriend Jayse & beautiful 3 year old baby girl. I have worked for over 10 years as a Professional Dancer & Teacher at my own school & some of the Professional Colleges. I have been lucky enough to enjoy a fulfilling Career, however I have recently become complacent with teaching & began to seek a new venture.
I have always been creative and love using my hands, so when I stumbled across papercrafting just over 3 years ago it seemed the perfect match! I then entered "Cardmaker of the Year" competition with Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine where I was chosen as winner and have been doing commissions for them since. Very recently I set up my own blog and I'm absolutely blown over by the response I have had.
I am honored to be a new member of the Anything Goes Design Team and hope I can repay the thanks by creating some innovative and inspiring designs for you to look at. If I can be of assistance with your creations or help you along your papercrafting journey, them please don't hesitate to give me a shout.
Bye for now..

I have recently got back into crafting after I have had to give up work due to illness, I adore crafting, I love lots of stamps, Magnolias are my first love, I adore nothing more than sitting at my little crafting area creating all day and sometimes all evening!! I love creating cards and creations for all occasions, especially when I see how grateful the recipents are too receive something handmade!

I currently live in South Manchester, UK with my lovely man Gary. I have a beautiful 18 year old son, Nicholas, who is off on his travels on the Continent and will be back in May in time for his birthday... that's luck isn't it? He's having a ball, so that's the main thing.. miss him like mad though! :( I have only been crafting for about 3 years and have a passion for rubber stamping and colouring with pencils... I have dabbled with promos and copics and distress inks but I just can't get the hang of it..lol! Pencils and Sansador is the way to go! I love anything Magnolia, Teddy Bo, H&S, LOTV and so much more. Come and say hello, I'd love to hear from you!!
Hugs, Annie xXx
Hi! My name is Steph and I live in sunny Essex. I’m married to my soulmate who, not only is patient with my crafting, but positively encourages it!! I first got into crafting when I had to give up work about 5 years ago due to CFS/ME. Although I am loads better now, I got so completely hooked on crafting that I now get withdrawal symptoms if I go too long without without doing it!
Stamping is my main passion and I love nothing better than sitting down colouring in images, I could do it all day! I enjoy to stretch myself by doing challenges and I love browsing blogs, sharing inspiration and looking at new products even if I don’t buy them!!
Although I have done some craft fairs in the past, I mainly sell my cards and jewellery to family and friends to raise money for Macmillan.
I’m so excited to be part of the team and can’t wait to check out all everyone’s makes every fortnight! xxx
