Please help me welcome our newest team member, Helen Berry.  





I'm Helen and I live in West Oxfordshire, near the Cotswolds in the UK.  I've been married to my husband Jon for 10 years and we have two gorgeous little boys aged 8 and 5.  My love of papercrafts started back in 2007 when I was unable to find a personalised, handmade Christening card for the daughter of a close friend of mine, so I ended up making my own!   I quickly became addicted to cardmaking, although I've been creative my whole life in one way or another.  My mum taught me to knit and sew, and was always teaching craft classes or preparing for craft fairs in my teenage years. Mum & Granny always had knitting, patchwork or crochet on the go!!
I love making cards, although I do scrap-booking and make mini albums - I love to make jewelry and dabble in home decor.  My latest craze is making my own unique soaps using my clear stamps.  I'm hooked!! I'm always experimenting with new techniques and digital stamps and papers and love anything vintage or shabby - I simply can't get enough of buttons, lace, ribbon, twine and pearls!! I grew up in rural Norfolk and am inspired by nature - I have a real fondness for the roses in my garden, I guess I'm a country girl at heart :)
