About Me

Hi 😊

Thank you so much for visiting my webpages. I’m so glad to be part of your crafting journey.

I launched The Craft Studio in 2018 as a community for family focused moms, educators and creatives, this site is now a quickly growing collective for inspirational and supportive women from all around the world. On my webpages you will find high quality FREE SVG cutting files, technical tutorials and lots of hits and tips on how to get your family crafting!

Why crafting should be a priority for you

When I first started this website, I really wanted it to be about three things.

  • Great design and high-quality cutting files that could be used simply and easily at home to create beautiful projects
  • A place where you could come to learn how to get the absolute best out of your cutting machine. With hints and tips on how to use software and the best materials to use, so that you don’t waste time and money on things that just don’t work. I also try and make crafting as eco-friendly as possible!
  • A space to explore how you can fit crafting into your home life and use it to get your kids, grandkids and older family members creating. Crafting and making things have a positive effect on your mental wellbeing and development. Which is why I believe it is so important that everyone can find time to craft for themselves and others.

These three ideas form the core of everything I do here at The Craft Studio. I make sure that every single post and file works for you to help you along with your crafting journey.

My crafting journey

My extensive crafting career started when I could first sit at my mums dining room table and throw around glitter and glue to create my first masterpieces (well my mum thought they were anyway!). I’ve never looked back and have since completed a foundation art degree. As well as creating cutting files and blog tutorials for my own pages. I also create projects and blog for the Silhouette UK design team. You can see some of my creations for them.

This is me!

I’m a single stay at home mum to two beautiful, boisterous and bold children (6 and 3). They keep me busy and on my toes! They are also a huge part of why I craft and why I run my own business. My kids and the rest of my friends and family, inspire me to create wonderful things for them. That perfect birthday card, that beautiful gift box or the wonderful personalised gift that makes them smile and know they are loved and thought about.
