Final part of meet the DT !

Here we are on the last of the exciting DT reveal days just before our new challenge starts tomorrow.

I live in Ayrshire in the South West of Scotland with my DH. We have been married for over thirty years and have an amazing son and two gorgeous cats.
Crafting has always been a part of my life, mainly because my mum is a tailoress and even now she is always creating. When I was young I was very impatient with all aspects of crafting, preferring large knitting needles and thick wool, shortcuts when sewing. It was about 20 years ago that crafting became a passion for me. At that time 3D decoupage was all the rage and a good friend said that she would teach me, from there we attended rubber stamping classes as well as pergamano or parchment craft. When I look at cards that I made around that time they really are so bare.......( poor DH, mum and dad would get them for their birthdays) It was in 2004 that my crafting journey really transformed and I am hooked on all things Ranger/Tim Holtz. I began blogging in 2012 and was inspired by mixed media styles and altered art, which are now a favourite. My style is mainly vintage/grunge/shabby chic but I do love to dabble.

And finally there's me !

Sue - DT Team leader 

I live in a village in Derbyshire in the UK with my very understanding partner, Colin. I've always followed a crafty path even from young when I used to make stuffed toys. I studied art through to exam level at school and then moved on to cross stitch, floristry and even web page design ! My passion for crafting has only gotten stronger over the years and after I was introduced to embossing powder about 12 years ago the rest, as they say, is history. I love nothing more than being elbow deep in paint, ink and embossing paste and very often this is the case !

So there we have it, 6 members all raring to go ! Just wait until you see the fabulous projects they've made for your inspiration ! Make sure you pop back tomorrow !
