Noreen McKie


I 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 21years 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 started card making in 2012 as my sister made cards and I loved what she made, so I thought I would give it a try, I haven’t looked back since!!!  within 3 months I decided to enter Quick Cards 100th issue card competition where 10 prizes were up for grabs I was one of those 10. Ive also had a card in the Simply Cards & Papercraft for designing a card from the front cover gift. I have been guest designer for Quick Cards for the valentine’s  edition they did last year. I decided to buy some Katy Sue moulds to give another dimension to my cards which I love. I don’t walk about with glitter on me its cornflower most of the time!!! I love to make quite a few ahead so I can grab some to paint or colour to match my colour scheme of the card. I also love to colour images to use as toppers too.

Margaret Waters
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.

I currently demo and/or do workshops. I have given talks combined with demos and workshops at WI’s. Making cards and cakes for friends and family is still a part of my life along with helping with crafts and fundraising for the nursing home where my Dad lives. All of this as a hobby which has taken over my life!

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.

Karen Seal
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.

 

Victoria Heasman
In my real life I am
a animal welfare officer at Gatwick airport. I have done this for approx 9
years. I also work occasionally for glitter magic at the NEC and Sandown.

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.

Julie Caddy
Hi my Name is Julie
Caddy and I love everything Craft!
I have crafted for as
long as I can remember. I get a great feeling when I give a gift I have made and seeing the recipients reaction when I tell
them I made it just for them!
I’ve worked in many areas of Craft but my
main love is Cake Decorating and Clay Craft. Both of these are fab mediums to work with but using them
in relation to Katy Sue Products Well, that’s when it really gets exciting! The
moulds produce amazing, intricate work and I just love working with them. They
give such a professional finish and I look forward to using new moulds as soon
as they are released.

Susan Mason


I have always crafted even as a child. We would always be making toys, bears, cushions, knitting jumpers, covering the ironing board and matching fabric for the toaster cover ha ha, if it could be covered in fabric it was!  I went to secretarial college when I left school and worked in office based jobs for 20 years. Still making my own furnishings for the home.

I got into card making when I moved to Maldon in Essex 17 years ago, I found a little craft shop, bought my first rubber stamp and my card and craft making started from that little heart shaped stamp!  I made a card for my niece, personalised it with her name from peel off stickers and her age and after that got orders to make some for her friends.

I now run my own little Bespoke Wedding Stationery and card making business which is www.rosesandribbons.com

Angie Evans


I’m 53 years young and have been an avid crafter for 30+ years.  I enjoy a wide rage of crafts from sewing, knitting, cake decorating and paper crafts. I was introduced to Katy Sue designs back in 2005 when I had my own craft shop and tea rooms.  Flower soft was the first of the Katy Sue Design range I stocked and that was were my relationship with KSD started.

Since closing my shop I have had the pleasure of being part of the KSD design team and a demonstrator for them at many shows all over country.

I was a part of the team  when KSD first introduced the fabulous moulds and was never more proud when I was invited to join them at CHA in LA when they won the award for best innovative cake decorating product. I enjoy using all of the KSD products as I am able to use them in all aspect of my crafting across the board and the quality makes for a perfect result every time.

I now enjoy being a freelance demonstrator and am looking forward to using the new and exciting products from KSD.
