Emma


My name is Emma and i live in the beautiful Cornish countryside and not far from the sea.  I got into papercrafting after making cards from my own paintings, now papercrafting is my first pleasure, but i do still paint now and then.  I have a love of colour and take inspiration from nature, flowers, wildlife, my surroundings.  I love to try out new techniques and try and put my own stamp on most of my creations.  I do make alot of cards for family, friends and charity, but like to mix it up with mixed media canvases and home decor pieces, there is something special about making a hand made gift for loved ones.  I am lucky to have a fabulous family and spend as much time with them as i can, you can often find me helping out an injured animal of some kind, animals bring such pleasure to our lives.  I love to inspire others to try and push their boundaries a little bit in their crafting, so I hope you enjoy viewing my little projects. Emma
