Who are CS GET CRAFTY?
We are a mother & daughters team, Clair, Sharni & Sofie who have decided to take the plunge & open our very own little craft shop online.
Our aim with our online shop is to stock all the items we genuinely love to play with & we hope that you love them too.
Together we run weekly Card making, Scrapbooking, Copic colouring & Art Journaling workshops from our Studio based just outside Brighton.
We organise weekend craft retreats most of which tie in with all the big UK craft shows.
We also organise a group trip to USA every 2 years - It's amazing!! A couple of weeks shopping the USA craft shops, attending private craft workshops at the very best stores & of course, a bit of sight seeing too. We just love it!
CLAIR: Being creative has always been a huge part of my life whether it's card making, scrapbooking, photography or blogging - I have to do something creative every day! Over the years I've tried all sorts Sewing, Knitting, Jewellery making, Cross stitch, Embroidery, etc etc etc....
About 15 years ago I discovered scrapbooking, which I love, It's great to be able to take a simple photo & turn it into something special, make it tell a story & become something hopefully my children will treasure forever. Scrapbooking then led onto Card making & Stamping - All the wonderful stamps, papers, ribbons, flowers, bling!! I soon became a collector!!! Who can resist buying the latest, most stylish stash??!! Scrapbooking also allows me to indulge my love of photography, it gives me the perfect excuse to get the 'big girl' camera out & take more photos :)
In 2008 I became a Stampin Up Demonstrator - This enabled me to share my love of papercrafts with others. I started running craft workshops & although I no longer do Stampin up, the workshops have continued & have been running for 12 years now - I absolutely LOVE doing them because without a doubt the VERY best part of this crafting journey has to be all the friends I have made, my 'crafty' friends really do mean the world to me & I am grateful to each of them for taking time out of their lives to be a part of mine.
I am extremely proud to have been part of the design team for many great brands, Lili of the Valley, Besties, Craft Stash & a few more. I've also been lucky enough to have had my work featured in many papercraft magazines..Picking up a magazine in a shop & seeing a 4 page spread of your work is just awesome!!
