Hi, I’m Clare Cook, married, fifty something from the South Coast of England. I have been crafting for many years, mainly rubber stamping and even owned a papercraft shop in Hailsham, East Sussex for 7 years called Crafty Clare’s which closed in 2011.  I still run  Hailsham Stamp Club where we use rubber stamping techniques and new products to create cards, gifts and home decor. I am planning to share these projects here as well as writing back to basics, step by step tutorials for beginners and refreshers.

I am also now a very proud nanny to my Granddaughters Isabella, 4  Summer, 8. We do lots of crafts, mainly papercrafts, scrapbooking and card making but also painting, baking, knitting and sewing. I look forward to sharing these crafty projects too.
