Meet the Team - Geraldine M

It's time to meet another member of the Design Team and it's Geraldine M's turn:

If you have a blog, what's the blog address..?

How did you start crafting?
I've always enjoyed having a go at crafts, especially baking and jewellery, but about 4 years ago I asked a card maker to make a card for my Godson's 1st birthday.  It was gorgeous and I thought .... I could do that!

What is your favorite product line?
That changes with the weather!  Enduring favourites are Hero Arts and Ranger

What do you watch/listen to when you're creating?
I get very absorbed but if I remember to put music on it's usually The Killers or Coldplay.

What do you snack on while crafting?
Chocolate! Far too much!

Any paper crafting pet peeves?
Glues that don't survive in a warm room and bits of card and embellishments start sliding off when the card is displayed. Grrr.

Do you distress everything, not at all or somewhere in between?
In between, it depends on the type of card.

What is your favorite tool in your scrappy space?
My Cuttlebug

What is your favorite item in your scrappy space?
Currently, a tin of Inktense watercolour pencils.

When creating a project, do you plan it out or go with the flow?
I plan it out but it almost always ends up far from the plan.

What type of adhesive do you use?
My fave tape runner at the moment is Tombow - it has passed the warm room test.  For embellishments I've started using a hot glue gun.

What is your favorite kind of cardstock?
Love Neenah solar white for stamping and colouring.

Do you enjoy stepping out of your zone when creating new projects?
I don't like to be stuck with just one crafting style, I love to try other styles I admire but they don't always work out.

About how many projects do you create in a month?
Around 10 - I'd love to have time for more.

When is the best time for you to create?
School mornings!

What quality do you like and admire in others?
I love how crafty people are so generous with their ideas on the blogs.

Here are a couple of recent cards:


  1. Lovely to read about you Ger, you naughty chocolate girl lol.

  2. I love both of these the papers you have used are fabulous.

  3. Now I am going away to do my breakfast, when having my breakfast
    coming over again to read additional news.

  4. It's very trouble-free to find out any topic on net as compared to books, as I found this post at this web site.

    Check out my blog ... pizza games

  5. An impressive share! I've just forwarded this onto a coworker who had been conducting a little research on this. And he in fact bought me lunch simply because I found it for him... lol. So allow me to reword this.... Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending time to talk about this issue here on your web page.
