Hey friends, its Deepti here with the talented Gillian R. Her creations are perfection; I was completely stuck to her blog when I first saw this post and then another and another. I am sure you too will love to see her CAS creativity, so let’s find out more about Gillian and her CAS effect J
Name – Gillian R.
Blog – Made with Sparkle
1. Tell us a little about yourself and your family.
I am 30 years old and from Aberdeen, a city in the North East of Scotland, Last year I got married to my wonderful husband and we are just coming up to our first anniversary. At the beginning of this month I became an auntie for the first time to my gorgeous niece 'Emily'
2. How and when did you start crafting?
Just in the past few years actually. A new hobby craft shop opened in my local area and the selection of products inspired me, I tried out a few different crafts before falling in love with card making. Although I still do dabble in other bits and pieces for my own personal enjoyment.
3. From where do you draw your inspiration?
I started off buying card making magazines for my inspiration, however as my craft addiction grew I discovered how many wonderful bloggers are out there and I would say they are my main source of inspiration now. And of course the ever addictive Pinterest!
4. How would you describe your style?
I would say my style is 'Clean and Simple' this has evolved from when I started card making when I used a lot of designer paper and matting.
5. What are the 5 top tools in your crafting space?
Dimensional Stickers would be the first, I use them on everything!, I also couldn't live without my Die Cutting Machine, Paper trimmer, ProMarkers and my laptop.
6. What’s your favorite technique?
Hmmm this is a difficult one, I don't think I have a favorite technique, but if I had to pick one then probably Gradient Stamping, I love the effect you can get from it.
7. What are your go-to colors?
I don't think I really have any 'go to' colors, I change quite often, however I probably feel safest when using Pinks and blues, Brown however still makes me nervous.
8. Do you sell your projects?
I am very fortunate that a local shop sells some cards for me, I also sell some to family and work colleagues.
9. What do you do when you aren’t crafting? Job? Other hobbies and interests?
I work full time as a Quantity Surveyor and in my spare time I spend time with my wonderful husband and my fabulous friends and family.
10. Are you currently designing for any blog?
I don't design for any blogs, it was always something that I aspired to do, however with making cards for selling I don't think I would manage to find the time, but you just never know what is around the corner!
