About Me

I'm based in Needham Market, Suffolk for classes, but you can order from me wherever you are in the UK as our products are shipped directly to you from our European Warehouse in Germany. 

How it all began...
I've always had a huge passion for crafting and making things, but I actually gave up on card making and scrapbooking many years ago. This was because crafting supplies were often cheap in quality and old-fashioned, and they left me bored, frustrated and disillusioned.  

Fast forward to 2011. I was introduced to Stampin' Up! by a friend. I was completely enthralled by the amazingly clear and precise range of rubber stamps, and the beautiful papers, embellishments and inks that match so perfectly. I was so impressed (and obsessed!) that I decided I wanted to share Stampin' Up! with the world and so I signed up to become a demonstrator in 2012. 

I have been crafting consistently ever since. The thing I love most about Stampin' Up! is that it is always there for me to pick up and put down depending on what is happening in my life. It is a treasured bit of 'me time' and I earn money doing something I love. My customers and friends know me as the Crafty Hippy. 

Stampin' Up! Statement of the Heart
"To love what we do, and share what we love, as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments, in this we make a difference" 

Thank you for visiting this site, I hope you find everything you need and perhaps a little bit of inspiration, too.

Some of the wonderful testimonials I have received:

"Hey. Thanks for organising Stamp Camp the other Sunday, I had a fantastic time and who would have thought I could make such great cards. It'll remain our little secret that Stampin' Up take all the hard work out of it by coordinating all of their paper, ink colours, ribbons and brads, and filling their catalogue/ ideas book with ideas to either just copy or adapt with your own little finishing touches.

The designs are all fresh and modern, which makes a welcome change from a lot of the homemade card supplies that you can buy. I've already given three of the cards that I made, to friends with a birthday, an anniversary, and one just as a thinking of you card. I got two squeals, and the third hasn't been opened yet. They're so cute, without being twee.

Thanks for taking the time to cut out all the templates for the projects before we arrived, as that preparation would have taken us noobs a while, and we were able to make more during the time we had as a result. It was a great help to have examples of the finished products there, and for you to be on hand to help whenever we needed it, which to be fair, wasn't too often as the products are all so easy to use.

I highly recommend anyone give either Stamp Camp or one of your other card making evenings a go. I came away with a bagful of goodies and my newly made cards, and a tummy full of lunch and CAKE. I had a great day. Well worth the money, I shall certainly be at the next stamp camp."

"Stamp Camp, what can I say except what a great way to spend an afternoon. Lauren is instantly welcoming and makes anyone feel comfortable and at home. Her planning allows you to get straight on with being creative, making lovely cards that have been well received by all that I have given them to. If only they knew how easy they were to make.. the Stampin' Up! materials that we were supplied with are all very high quality, being able to take further projects home is a great idea allowing new crafters to go it alone after some very good tuition. I'm looking forward to the next one"

"Hi, I am new to card making and Lauren ordered some stamping-up ink pads for me. She kept me up to date with the details of my order through email all the way through the delivery process. I was really surprised at how fast the items were delivered.
I live too far away to attend Lauren's classes, but I know she is there if I ever need to ask or order anything. Thank you Lauren"

I love coming to your classes. Guilt free crafting, as sometimes at home, there are plenty things that need doing ahead of a couple of hours of crafting bliss. Girlie chat with like minded people is also a bonus. :) x
