A Message from Helen...

Not that I'm biased in the slightest (lol), but as the owner of Calico Craft Parts I hope you'll agree that we have the most amazing design team.  Many of you will remember our team of ladies from the days of Calico Crafts and although there have been some changes to the line up, the creativity and inspiration hasn't slowed a jot! 

Please do share some love for our fabulous designers over at the Design Team Blog and thank you for stopping by! So without further ado, here's more about our talented team...

All the best... Helen x

Louise Crosbie (aka Zuzu) - Design Team Co-ordinator

I have always enjoyed being creative, even as a child. My latest craft obsession started about 16 years ago with simple card making. that soon became rubber stamping and general papercrafts which in turn led to me wanting to do altered art and mixed media. I am particularly fond of making new things look old, distressed vintage or shabby chic, but i like other styles sometimes too.

Claudia Neubacher

Loving mother, wife and dog owner. Besides having a Master of Arts degree, I have been creating since I could hold a pencil. "Plumps" were the first creatures that filled my drawing sheets and gave me that wonderful feeling of being an almighty "creator". They actually were clumsily drawn circles with added strokes all around that resembled the legs (or arms?) but to me they were my first creations and that filled me with immense pride and happiness.

Today - about forty-five years later - I find that I still have moments when I feel like that - they are more seldom of course - and therefore even more precious to me. And isn't this what being creative really is all about?

Kerstin-Inga Peters

I have been creating for many years now, always in search for new techniques and yet unexplored territory in craftland. I'm a Vintage fan and love the things that are old and nobody wants anymore, because they have a history! I like to invent always new and so I will also often be good for a surprise.

I scrap and craft because it's a passion, it's a wonderful relaxing time for me. I'm a very detail in love person and pay much attention to even the small things in life. This makes the often gray everyday life easier. I find inspirations by the various things of everyday life, discoveries in my garden or on hikes through the nature. I love to capture moods and feelings and to implement them in my craft projects. Behind all things can you find a story, I hope I can encourage and inspire you to try and create along with us, this amazing wooden or MDF shapes are absolutely awesome and there are so many various possibilities to work with them.

Liz Marsden

Hi everyone, my name is Liz and I love to create, I've been crafting in one way or another since my childhood where I loved to colour and make things.

My style varies from fussy and fancy with lots of layers and interest to CAS, I also love to do mixed media, depending on what I'm creating and who it's for. You will usually find me in my craft room, so come on round the kettles always on, lol.

Happy Crafting!!

Hugs Liz xx
