Karen McCaughern
Clay Crafts

I have always enjoyed crafting and have been doing it now over 18 years.  I started off with cross stitching, moving on to paper crafts and now found my love for clay whether it be air dry or polymer clay.  I love making things for around the home, recycling everyday items, little characters and many more things.  I would class myself still as a hobbyist even though I do sell some of my items in a craft retail outlet in my local town.  I have been working with clay now for just over a year and I find it very relaxing and a good stress reliever.  I love using Katy Sue’s wonderful products, they have made my items look so professional, they are lovely too work with, fantastic quality and very affordable.

I am Sharon King and I live in Wiltshire in United Kingdom. I am married with 4 children. I have been paper crafting for about 10 years but I have been knitting since I was 4 so I have been crafting a long time.

 

A friend of mine got me into paper crafting which is now a passionate pass time of mine. I love to stamp and decoupage images as well. Nothing better than sitting in front of the TV and doing a bit of cutting. I have been a fan of Katy Sue for many years and started the We Love Katy Sue Designs Facebook group of which I am still admin for. The images they use are always so versatile to use on many different projects.. I am so looking forward to working with Katy Sue’s images.

I have been crafting all my life really. I can’t really say it’s a hobby, more like an obsession! I started knitting as a young girl and have been paper crafting for about 12 years. Absolutely love mixed media! I also draw, paint a little, art journaling I love, crochet, embroidery and knitting. I love to have a go at everything!

 

Well what can I say about Katy Sue Designs? How can you not love them! Their moulds are second to none. I have been a huge fan since Flower Soft. Katy Sue products are quality and lend themselves to so many crafts. I hope to bring a bit of grunge in to the mix and a few unusual projects.

 

Noreen McKie
Clay Crafts, Card Making/Paper Crafts

Noreen2 -15.6.15 - CopyI have always crafted in some sense from being a very young girl, sewing, knitting, Plaster of Paris mould making and painting, etc etc. I have worked for Susan and Doreen for the past 23 years and every stage of development of the company has brought new crafting outlets. I originally got the job with the company when Sue saw two cakes I had decorated for gifts! I loved making our famous collectors items porcelain dolls and we then moved on to Flower Soft, card making, stamping and CD crafting soon followed on behind!

 

I now feel back to full circle joining in with sample making using our award winning moulds for craft and cake. The journey has taken me to many places I would never have gone and has been exciting and eventful and, as always, remains a great source of creative pleasure.

I craft as a hobby and was introduced, by a friend, about 6 years ago to card making and scrapbooking.  Whilst I love paper craft about 18 months ago I made my first clay cake topper for my nephews wedding and I was hooked from then on.  I love to combine clay with card making and the moulds produced by Katy Sue Designs are so versatile and easy to use. I now use air dry clay as well as polymer clay for anything from a card to Home Décor.

I have been crafting for more years than I care to remember! I suppose I started as a small girl making things out of my Easter egg boxes etc! I then went on to needlework, in particular cross stitch, from which I made cards for friends and family. In the early 80’s I got really hooked on card making.

 

A few years, and a lot of cards, later I had made a couple of Oriental cards using Flower Soft and gave them to Noreen, from there I was invited to make something with the nursery rhyme toppers and have since then had the pleasure and privilege of making cards, boxes, books, some cake samples and anything else I can think of with the wonderful Katy Sue products.

My main priority has always been my work for Katy Sue Designs – the beauty and quality of all of their products makes them a joy and a pleasure to work with and I am honoured to have been part of the design team for so long.

I have always crafted and started when I was very young. My mam was a dressmaker and sold sewing machines. I was so small I used the foot treadle with my hand. I started making cards mixed media ect and wanted buttons and embellishments to match. This is when I got addicted to polymer clay. I by chance saw Kathryn Sturrock on C&C creating with polymer clay, I realized its potential and I have never looked back. I have been serious about my creations for about 1 year. I first found Katy sue products when I saw Noreen using Flower Soft! Which works well with polymer clay.
