Designer Saturday: Laine Webb


This weekend we’re pleased to help you get to know Laine Webb!

Hello to everyone from Laine. I hope this finds you well. I have been crafting for as long as I can remember. I enjoy knitting, cross-stitch and crochet as well as paper-craft. I loved making sweet little clothes for my daughter’s when they were small.

I started to make cards a few years ago and the hobby has just grown and grown. It’s so exciting to begin a new project, with an image or kit, work out the design and card style, matching the colours, papers, fabulous die-cuts and folders.

Stamping and colouring is also a passion and I can spend hours on the shading of an image. It’s wonderful to see something take shape and depth and then pop from the page.

I was so thrilled and delighted to be asked to become a member of the Crafter’s Companion Designs Team and take huge pleasure in all the varied and colourful projects we are given to explore.

I am still a very new member of the Design Team and don’t have a huge body of work to share with you. These are some of my favourite creations:

My tips would be.

1. Recycle large plastic lids for use as a painter’s palette or cut them up for stencils.
2. Have white ribbon to hand and colour using your Spectrum Noir Pens or Distress Inks to match your project.
3. Punch through aluminium foil to sharpening your decorative punches. Punch through wax paper to lubricate your punches .

More examples of my work can be viewed on my personal blog: I would be so pleased if you visited.
